I knew one guy from Middlesborough who lived in Cork but I think he went home on the grounds that there were already too many mad people in Cork !
Mind you he lived in Glanmire which might explain a lot.

Priceless.

Fair play to Gibson for writing back.

any body remember gary parkinson? well he's got locked in syndrome after suffering a stroke last year. must be a horrible illness. fair play to tony mowbray and boro for making an effort in keeping him involved in the game and helping him out. must be a tough life for him and his family.

A former football star has snapped up a job as a scout – despite suffering a stroke that left him completely paralysed.

Gary Parkinson, 43, can only communicate by blinking his eyes after being struck down in September.

The dad-of-three, from Bolton, had to give up his job as a youth coach at Blackpool.

But now he has got a new job as a scout for his former team Middlesbrough – after devising a system of blinks to run the rule over young hopefuls he watches on DVDs.

Tony Mowbray, manager of the north-east club, got in touch to offer him the role after hearing about the rating system Gary had devised with wife Deborah.

One blink means the player is not worth chasing - whereas four means the club should do its utmost to sign them up.

Deborah then relays the message back to Mowbray who then uses the information to decide which targets to pursue

She said: “"Tony and his coaching staff, like Mark Proctor and Stephen Pears, have been fantastic for Gary.

"When Tony first came to see Gary, he could see Gary was still aware of everything that was going on around him.

“So he asked Gary if he wanted to do some scouting for him.

"A DVD comes down to us, with a sheet of paper. There is a description of the player, his name, his age, his position and the clubs he has played for.

“Gary still loves his football, knows all about youth football from his time as the youth team coach at Blackpool, and you can see he picks up when he is doing it.”

Gary – who also played for Bolton, Burnley and Preston during his football career – is currently being treated at the Priory Highbank Centre in Bury.

A football tournament was held in his home town of Bolton in August, organised by his son Luke, to raise money for the Gary Parkinson Trust Fund. The fund helps provide cash for Gary's rehabilitation.

Mowbray, writing in his programme notes ahead of Middlesbrough's match with Blackpool last Saturday, said: “We were determined to give Gary a role, where he could feel involved.

“Not only that, I genuinely value his opinions about the game.

"We let him have a look at some of the players who come to our attention and it gives Gary something to concentrate on.

“Long after he ceases to be headline news, we will still be there for him."

Great result today for Boro. They do have pedigree when it comes to giant slaying.
A good cup run and promotion would go a long way to bring the good times back to Middlesbourgh.
All aboard!

They have a top manager and a good chairman. Pity the stadium is always half empty.

Its a big one m8s.
Bumnal away. The Boro fans will have to remortage the house what with the cost of the trip and refreshments on top of the likely exhorbitant ticket prices the Landan club will be charging. Can anyone who lives near the ground actually afford to get in?

Fancy us to upset the odds and dump another big club on its arsenal.
