If you first don't succeed try, try and try again. Wasn't that the story of Tees descendent, Robert de Brus and the spider and the cave. We have already tried to record one podcast for the Boro game v Swansea City but of course the game was shelved and pretty much all of life put on hold as we descended into the grip of the pandemic. With the season back on again, we succeeded second time around with a socially distant podcast for the game next Saturday June 20th.

Together with anchorman Alex Lewczuk we try to pick up from where we left off with a victory away at Charlton but then we must try and plug the gap and ask what will come next? In many ways it was brave of Boro to embrace this new start. That win at The Valley lifted us to well out of the bottom three and it looked as if we enjoyed the upward momentum whilst the defeated Valiants were floundering. Hull City were another team really suffering at the time. Barnsley and Luton were under all sorts of pressure down at in the relegation basement. But what happens now?

No one knows what will happen. In Germany home advantage has been going out of the window. Perhaps the fans make all the difference. There will be no actual support next weekend. Which will be very weird.

We have much to discuss on our 25 minute podcast and we do our best to think through a few scenarios. In the fanzine, the normally sober, considered columnist Mike Baker, admitted he had had enough of Jonathan Woodgate. Can Woody win Mike and all his many doubters over by keeping Boro up? After all that is totally the name of the game now. Championship survival and then working out how we can go again next season. Hopefully still in the second level and will it be with or without fans?

This was recorded on Friday and broadcast to the patients and staff in James Cook Hospital. People that have been so much in our minds for the past few weeks. We hope we provided a little respite and relief as we look towards the resumption of EFL Championship football from the Riverside.
