VOTE ON NEW BANNERS

With the start of the new season approaching, the Twe12th Man would appreciate your help in deciding on ideas for two new permanent banners at The Riverside.

We intend to hang banners in both the North West and South West corners of the ground. The banners will be attached to the barrier that separates the two tiers.

The red banners are approximately 15 metres long. Please give your ideas for what can be sewn on to the banners. Any design has to be approved by MFC as these banners will be permanent additions to the Riverside.

These two areas of the ground are largely undecorated and the Twe12th Man hopes to improve the character of the stadium by adding colour in every area.

Please submit your ideas over the next week. The most constructive/popular will be put to a vote across all Boro related internet forums.

Does this mean that the 18-21 year olds in those corners who make their own banners will not be able to hang them from there because you are taking the space?

I'm sure there are a few out there who have banners and who may be sitting up there for the cheap tickets, if it was me I would not be too happy.

i'm with the 12th on this one. If its permanent then why would anyone want to put their own up. Do we take down the advertising boards?

I prefer one big message from all fans.

Was my idea of old school rattlers discussed?

Because they have made their own banners to show their own individual support. There have been a few over that railing in the last season - some there week in week out and now they won't be able to because the 12th man has taken over their space.

I also know that my partner has not had the minutes from the last meeting, which have been requested on here by others. To the best of my knowledge my partner is no longer involved in any administration for your group. Therefore I believe it is not up to him to do anything about this problem and as chairman I would imagine you would know what to do.

But I can't think how to shorten it into banner form.

I think 2 unlimited had it down to two words but it doesn't have the same ring to it. Could always go with Endeavour.

i think a banner would look good in the east stand, maybe at the back or where the teers seperate, there are already flags in the south and north west corners, is the flag with loads of different countrys flags on it in the south west still?
the east doesnt really have any banners (except gibbo one at the beggining of the game) and probably needs a bit more coulour seen as thought its always empty.

I think the "Infant Hercules" idea is a fantastic one. First it has an element of local history attached to it and secondly, anyone who has watched and heard the commentary from the steau game will know that when Brownlee says it, it sends a shiver down your spine.

I really hope that this term is used on the banner somewhere.

ahhh but how will the shortlist be put together.

Will there be a vote to decided what gets on the shortlist followed by another vote to decide the winner?

Or like the 'Sporting Glory' decision, will everyone just be by passed and the worse one picked, as on this occasion.

Unfortunately Jon77, the time between winning the sheff utd replay, getting permission off the club to hold the card display,and the game itself was too tight to hold any vote so it was decided by the people who attend meetings. It would have been better, i agree, in giving fans a choice but it just wasn't possible.

We have tried to do things right with these two new banners.

why not something to show how far the club has come in 20 years. one could have a tableau of Gary Hamilton, Gary Parkinson and Pearsy playing pool at the Inn off the Park, while the other could show woody handing out £100 notes to a bunch of trainees.

or maybes
23/08/86 middlesbrough 2 port vale 2 stephens (2)

29/02/04 middlesbrough 2 bolton 1 job zenden

Personally I would love something that harks back to our best players/mNgwers. In US sports when they retire jerseys I think they hang the smewhere.
Maybe we could just have a list of their names with room for more......so mayve simply George Hardwick, George Camselll, Wilf Mannion, Brian Clough, John Hickton etc.


On another note why do these lads have to get grief eveytime they do something. Fair enough if it is constructive but some of it is just petty and troll-like.

skymasteron, there's currently a massive banner being made with the pictures of boro's greatest 10 players on it. This will be going in the east stand.

"just wanted to vote against anything with steel or iron in it"

Me too - we want something that the opposition fans/players will understand and fear (if a banner can be feared).

I quite like "It's in the blood" and "You are the chosen few".

"It's in the blood" can even reference to our iron/metal industrial past (well, steel really but...), as iron is in the blood - but I think that's taking things a bit too far!

[EDIT] - Just thought on, last time I went to High Force, some river-boffin told me the water looked slightly orange due to a high iron content. Therefore, "It's in the blood" can refer to our Boro passion, or iron - which has links to our proud industrial past and the River Tees, which is the reason why our town had such massive population growth in the 1800s!

Instead of designing S***ty banners - which IMO, are a waste of money and bring nothing towards the match day - why not print off song sheets to put on seats in the ground so fans can actually provide an atmosphere?

I think the banners are great. I don't understand how anyone can say they add nothing to the atmosphere. Of course they do. They add colour, interest and individuality to what is otherwise a rather drab identikit stadium. Flags, banners, team shirts & scarves are as essential to the matchday atmosphere as singing, clapping and cheering. Can you imagine Anfield on one of those great european nights without flags and banners? Think of a cup final with no team colours on display. I was in Eindhoven and all the Boro red and white around the City made the day.

OK, there's no substitute for a full house but to say they add nothing is plainly silly. The new banners are a great idea. I get so sick of the negativity and whinging of some Boro fans.
