Why is Hasselbaink leaving BORO ?? He's been one of our key players for 2 seasons. If it wasn't for him , we woundn't be in the UEFA Cup this season. We're not in a good position at the momment and letting him go is a big mistake . Dont go Hasselbaink !
Powerhorse thinks that jimmy 'fly' hasselbaink is a cracking forward. he may be old but hes not ready for the knackers yard yet. we have a few injury problems and how can we afford to let someone go because we need money to buy players. when everything is sorted i think he should go if he wants but not yet. anyway, i like the chap. So thats that.
i have been asking myself why dont the boro spend tons of money any more on players like robbo used to? i think i know why, he spent so much that gibbo doesnt want the boro to go the way of sheff wed and leeds. i mean, that would be far more crap than losing jimmy, would it not? it makes sense especially as many fans arent turning up to watch the boro like they used to. i think its one of those business things and gibbo knows what hes doing there.

The Boro concentrated to much on the attacking side over the summer, consequently an aging or inexperianced defence is now suffering. Two days to go and we are looking at a depleted defence playing against Sunderland.
I hope the Boro signs a couple of defenders in the next two days. The result against Sunderland might bring out a few instant decisions.
