Steve Gibson speaks out...

Live on BBC Cleveland/Tees this Saturday.

Have just been sent this link over and it couldn't be better timing could it? There has been a fair amount of debate about Steve Gibson's role in Boro's rise/fall on here today. So it should be fascinating to hear what the Chairman really thinks of the state of Boro.

Am I interpreting the sentence at the bottom of the article correctly where it says:

"The BBC does not have the rights for internet streaming of Middlesbrough FC commentary for Premier League and Carling Cup matches."

Does that mean that you wont be able to listen to the commentary online then?

Yes, I think that is what it means.

So who does have those rights (I'm assuming Boro World) ?

You'd best email them and ask. I know they were talking about how they were going to make the commentary broadcasts available beyond Teesside. I don't work for them though so I don't know any of the answers. Sorry.

No not at all skeelo haven't started pulling it all together as yet. Still typing out Gary Gill interview - wish we hadn't spoken for so long now.

Can't believe people slating Gibbo. I know I'd be preaching to the converted here anyway, but without him, well, you know the rest...

I mean, that caller on the Legends the other week, Frank, asking where all the money has gone. I'd say it is the opposite, i.e. where does it all come from, because for a club with a small fanbase and gate revenue, we've been punching above our weight in the transfer market the last 12 years.

Well, I for one hoe that he's as enthusiastic about the Boro now as he ever was.

Altohugh he is idolised on Teesside by so many, I still get the feeling that we might not realise just how good he is for the club until he's gone.
