Do we appear on MOTD opening credits?

I've seen the new MOTD opening titles a few times now and for the life of me I don't see the Boro crest included.

Anyone else noticed this?

Maybe not next season if we dont get a striker in January, but I think there is a quick shot of Woodgate on there at the mo

I haven't seen it but the editor of MOTD is from Stockton and is a Boro fan.

Dont talk shyte gagarin. How would they be able to get away with being so anti-boro and only giving us the last 30 seconds every week if the editor is a boro fan?

He's from Stockton but his family moved away when he was older.He's one of the nicest blokes you could ever wish to meet, really funny and Boro through and through.
I have no doubt whatsoever that he tries his level best to be fair. I'm sure you can understand what a difficult job it is trying to please all of the people all of the time.

unbeliveably it's true, considering we get a nano second shot of woodgate. he should assert himself more...unlss he's ashamed that is

The credits are actually one of the most expensive things to develop for the show.

They were done whilst Boro was in the middle of its 'rebranding' exercise!

Therefore there was no new shirt available for them to show. As a result there was a very small clip of Woody in last seasons Boro shirt (with old sponsor!).

The credits actually speed up at that point to try and hide the blip, which is solely down to Boro being unable to get a new sponsor and kit out in time.

Not the MOTD team's fault at all this time. Sorry folks!

Another PR triumph for the Boro then, which is as usual blamed on someone else.

on the plus side it does boost our appearance every week to 31 seconds - think positive!
