Sorry had to do this in a hurry as not home now until Sunday night

Smoggies are sheite

Played at Ayresome Park for yonks now play at The Riverside Stadium, named by the supporters of the club after a vote, became the club's home in 1995. It was the first stadium to be built in line with the Taylor Report's recommendations on all-seater stadiums for clubs in the top two divisions of the English football league system. It was originally a 30,000-seater stadium, constructed at a cost of £16 million] before it was expanded in 1998 to a capacity of 35,100 for an extra £5 million. Current capacity is 34,000

Great players for the club include Juninho, Bryan Robson, Souness, Alf Common, Cloughie and Raviolli

Leeds linked peeps is a massive list but to name a few: Big Jack, Wee Gordie, Viduka, Woodgate, Baird, Spunk, Venerables and Adam Clayton


The club appointed former Leeds United manager Garry Spunk as manager in the off-season of 2017. Expectations at the club were high, having spent close to £50 million in the transfer window on player purchases, in order to mount an immediate promotion challenge back to the Premier League. Monk left in December, with Middlesbrough ninth in the Championship and underachieving,and Tony Pulis was appointed as his replacement. Pulis led the side to finish 5th in the table to qualify for the playoffs, but lost in the semi-final to Aston Villa. The following season Pulis looked to secure the playoffs once again, but a poor finish to the season caused them to finish 7th and miss out on the playoffs by one point.[46] Pulis subsequently left his position at the club after his contract expired on 17 May 2019.

Pulis was replaced by former Middlesbrough defender and first team coach, Jonathan Woodgate on 14 June 2019 on a three-year contract.

Traditionally supporters come from Middlesbrough itself and towns in the immediate area. Middlesbrough have one of the highest proportions in Britain of locally born season ticket holders at 80%, and one of the highest proportions of female fans at 20%.
The nickname Smoggies was first used as a derogatory term by opposing supporters; it relates to the industrial air pollution – smog – that used to hang over the town, but it was later used by Middlesbrough fans in a somewhat self-deprecating manner before finally being adopted as a badge of pride by supporters of the club

Enough about them

We are playing crap at the moment but winning, a good sign for a decent club. The winning goal we scored against Reading is trademark to what we do, fast flowing footy, and I expect more of that against Boro. Back to almost a full squad now we should be winning this one at a canter on our own dung heap, but this is the Championship so who knows.

Off to Slurry tomorrow after watching the Vapours and From the Jam tonight so won't be back with you apart from via phone until Sunday

Go for it mate.

Nice for once if we put away chances and score like WBA can.

Playing below standard and winning is great but we need to up our game, because if we continue to play the same and don't win, it's then harder to pick up the form.

Great chance in the next 3 games to put pressure on the Baggies.

Going for 5 wins on the bounce and again like Luton & Reading i see us taking all 3 points.
As you say Batty we aren't at our fluid best atm but look isn't that a sign of a good side, not playing the best but still winning,

I'm going for another clean sheet for kiko, who has really kicked on since last season, 2 first half goals Harrison & Pablo with bamford bagging a second half brace (TC10 will be on cloud nine)


4-0 Leeds
35,885
1 yellow both side
0 reds
more than 11 corners in the game
8.73534523542352352 deg

66,879 pints drank ( i believe there will be a few lightweights in attendance)


Ohh Sorry NO RAIN during the game but a stiff easterly breeze that would cut the b*llox off a lad is forecast so don't forgot to bring your willy-warmers

Quality MDT and good luck for a prolonged run Battyboy....we need to make the most of these games before harder fixtures on paper over Xmas. Although with us you can never tell and sometimes the 'harder' fixtures are 'easier'....

I'm going for a VERY hard fought 1-0 win with Hattrick Bamford notching yet again in his quest to be the top scorer in the league....

Enjoy Turning Japanese In The City tonight!!

Fancy Leeds will get a scare from Woodgate's lot - local rivalry and now they have a win to boot.

2-1 but no plain sailing

So was it Foxton / Butler and then someone else in for Weller? Remember seeing Foxton live at Middlesbrough (coincidently) Town Hall when he went solo after the jam split up. That was my first concert and I was blown away being within touching distance of my first non/footballing hero...

Happy days!

Not at our fluid best but we totally dominated them

We had 70% possession so it was great to see us bagging 4 and looking so comfortable throughout.

Great goal from Klitch (his 2nd one) which should give him more confidence as will Costa get from his goal. 

Paddy on the mark again and so early which made the match easier for us as they could not sit back and waste time. 

Well Done Batts - you're top of the league!

shame about Phillips missing the dog botherers, but that's the only down side to a great display

It'll be Ben White as holding midfield instead of Kalvin with Beradi alongside Coops....sure Bielsa won't gamble on a youngster

Some people are saying on the forum that Batty was in the right place at the right time after a hard run of games let him in....only to be presented with an easy run of games.

Not me though and I just hope people are not jealous or bitter....























....on the plus side we're not getting any fkn c-rap racing tips....
