Snow Business At Boro

  Boro v Hull City, a game that anyone present will be talking about for years. I nearly said “anyone that saw it” but of course we didn’t see a great deal of Hull, white shirts on snow white pitch. Referee, please take note, once you’ve learned to fasten your boot laces! As for those new fangled luminous yellow balls, well they’re plainly not luminous are they? Not a patch on the old orange ball. But as we were always told there were only 6 of them in the ....

Fmttm Mowbray Special Podcast

  Fmttm heralded the second age of Tony Mowbray with a very special podcast. Fly Me To The Moon with Tony Mowbray.   After all the pre-season promise this campaign turned so sour so quickly. Gordon Strachan’s post match outburst was almost the last rites to his year of struggle and strife on Teesside. Instead of blazing a trail at the head of the table Boro were locked in a do or die relegation struggle.   Desperate times called for a big man with broad shoulders, Tony ....

We All… Leeds And Leeds

  When I was young Boro v Leeds was THE game. It was the match you always looked out for and it was match you simply could not even consider losing. Tomorrow’s match is going to be every bit as important. If Boro harbour any ambitions of finally stepping on the gas and moving on up then surely we must clean up against the fallen giants of West Yorkshire. Or is that the club rising again from the ashes? Another reason why tomorrow’s teatime kick off is so important to both ....

Boro Must Sink Pompey – Podcasts

  Boro must get back to winning ways at home today and blast Pompey out of the water. Nothing less is acceptable for a team that has slid perilously close to the relegation zone after back to back defeats on the road.   We have a couple of podcasts for you chatting about recent events and our hopes and expectations. Click on the links at the bottom to listen. They are both about 20 mins in length.   We are back on home soil again today and hopefully we can click into that ....

Time For Perspective

It has been a terrible weekend for Boro fans. The damaging defeat at QPR but then the news filtering through about Gary Parkinson being in a critical condition put everything into perspective. We all wish Gary well and can send him a message by chanting his name at the match on Tuesday night. Burnley and Boro fans alike.   Torrid times at Boro at the moment. Only five games into the season and already our pre-season promotion favourites status seems like an almost unachievable dream. How ....

Big Weekend For Boro

Boro will be looking to start the season all over again this Sunday. We need to finally get off the mark and start to turn all that promotion potential on paper into real goals and points.   Sheff United always make for difficult opponents and we hit tem on at the start of a new era, the age of speed. Will it be a different Blades we see? Will they come out into the open and try and take us on or pack behind the ball, put themselves about and make themselves hard to break ....

Come On Boro: Stop The Tractors In Their Tracks

It’s here at last the first game of the brand new season and there is a real feeling of hope and optimism in the air. We are favourites for promotion and no wonder with the squad Gordon Strachan is assembling. But the acid test will be with the actual kick off out on the field against Ipswich. Come on….   You might have seen last night just how easily worlds can come tumbling down. Norwich were strong favourites against cash-strapped Watford but were put to the sword by ....

Fmttm World Cup Podcast

It is less than a week away now to the big kick off in South Africa. The Boro is on the back burner for a time as England flags are going up all round the shop. Excitement is growing before the very first World Cup finals to be played out in Africa.   Best prepare the big match environment in your front room. Bagsy the best chair in front of the new surround sound flat screen HD telly and prepare enough light and not so light snacks to give you sustenance for a month. Take care to read ....

Boro Inside - The Podcast

  The season is over – we wrapped things up with a special end of season podcast at Southside studios. Featuring surprise guest, Boro poet and new father, Khadim Hussain, he was certainly a surprise to me and Afonso Alves former dietician Aaron Craig (not really). Oh as well as Southside anchorman, Alex and myself.   Coventry was a flat end to the home campaign and of course we lost at Leicester to finish in 11th place. But we try to end things on a bighter note, or at least ....

Afonso Alves Ate All The Pies

  No one would ever accuse Jonathan Woodgate of being any other than normal with his eating needs and requirements but the same could not be said for Boro’s Brazilian striker Afonso Alves. Perhaps the reason why the “goal machine” went badly out of order is revealed by his eating disorder i.e. he ate two tatties more than a pig.   Fmttm podcast presenter Alex and Robert Nichols were joined by a former Hurworth restaurant chef, Aaron Craig who lifted the lid on ....

Can Boro Still Take It To The Play Offs

  Dropping those 2 points against Crystal Palace at Easter looked crucial at the time but do we still have time to claw our way into the play offs?   There is no doubting the make or break nature of Saturday’s game at the Hawthorns. Hopefully West Brom might switch off having clinched promotion and with Newcastle having one hand and two fingers on the Championship crown.   If only we hadn’t drawn quite so many games in this unbeaten run. As Chris Riggott stated ....

Fmttm Boro Podcast 15 And 16

  Normal service has been resumed at last, after what seems like for ever. Hope it was worth the wait.   It has been a while since I posted any podcast links up here. We’ve still been recording them to accompany every issue of the fanzine, it’s just that the place that used to host them started playing up and then stopped taking any new items altogether. Anyway we are back now with a new home managed by someone in the Far East I believe.   We’ve a lot of ....

Boro V Swansea Podcast - Revisited

  Boro finally played and drew with Swansea at the second time of asking. Back on the 9th January the snow lay deep and crisp and even all over the Riverside and everywhere around. All around was ice and everyone was slipping over and clogging up the AandEs. We wondered if it would last forever. Afterall it hadn’t shifted in 3 weeks. There were frequent doom laden reminders of winters past – 1962 when the snow didn’t shift for 3 months! Oh no..   Anyway, the ....

Fmttm’s Boro End Of A Decade Podcast

  The noughties, as they have suddenly become, are almost done and dusted. Boro’s ended the decade in defeat but we had several momentous victories in this decade. A cup win, a major European final. A couple of miracle come backs. There were crushing defeats of Man United and Chelsea. And there was relegation, misery and booing.   We put together a special Christmas/New Year podcast – wishing you all a festive time and Happy New Year. It features presenter/producer Alex ....

Now is the season not to be jolly. Unless we put one or two over on the Geordies at St Toon's Park on Sunday. What a Christmas present come early that would be.   The latest fmttm podcast made (well) prior to the Cardiff City game. I mention a lot of interviews with former and present Boro players. Some of which will now appear in the Boxing Day issue – Hughie McIlmoyle, Archie Stephens, Rolando Ugolini, John Craggs, Arthur Horsfield. But Emanuel Pogatetz was indeed mentioned in ....

No guests just me and the man with The Voice Alex Lewczuk.   The podcast was put together before our last match with Nottingham Forest in the shadow of Sean St Ledger’s battling but doomed display for Ireland against France.   We discuss Boro issues and Fmttm articles.

Pocasting In The Uk: The Fmttm Way

  The latest fmttm podcast when we were still dizzy on Strachan- euphoria or whatever and merrily predicting 3-0 wins etc over Plymouth. Oh for those innocent days once more.   Andrew Glover, chief presenter Alex and myself were joined this week by Teesside comedy writer Dean Wilkinson. He’s worked with all the stars, no seriously and now he is down at the bottom of the heap with Andrew and myself. Actually he knows nowt about football but Dean helps stimulate a different ....

She passed the test with ....

Fmttm Podcast – Volume 6. The Watford Fanzine

  Well, how were we to know it was all going to turn out wrong like that? For the first time this season Andrew Glover joined Alex and myself at Southside Broadcasting’s base at James Cook University Hospital to record the podcast companion to the weekend’s fanzine.   As well as all the usual Boro discussion we talked about Danny Coyne coaching youngsters where tiny tot custodians called him, “Coyno.” There was a new poet this week whose ode to the Idle ....

Here is volume 5 of fmttm Podcast in conjunction with Southside Radio – broadcasting at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough.   Designed as a companion to issue 447 of Fly Me To The Moon. That was the fanzine that went public on that terrible night v Leicester City. There were a few angry articles within about the WBA trouncing and the capitulation at Coventry. But.. also some interesting stuff about Boro in the community.   It all seems a long time ago now, ....

This is the fourth fmttm podcast of the season – recorded by and with Alex at Southside Broadcasting over at James Cook University Hospital. We’re looking back on the week leading up to the West Brom game.

This week we discuss the Boro v Ipswich Town fanzine – and all matters Boro, from bands rocking the Riverside to damaging defeats at Forest and Bristol City.   There were a few hard hitting articles in the fanzine.
