Just as we were settling into what has been quite a pleasant break from football, the Championship fixtures for 2022/23 have been announced.

Boro will start at 17:30 on Saturday 30th July with a tricky test against West Brom at The Riverside. In fact, it's quite a difficult early run right through August until we finally get a straightforward three points against Sunderland on 3rd September. Indeed, the four games in September look Boro's best in terms of fixture difficulty.

Plenty of squad reshaping to come of course right across the Championship and some cup matches to fit in but in the meantime, below are Boro's Championship fixtures:

Thanks Andy. My diary and calendar have been updated.

I was wondering how the World Cup would affect the fixtures and it looks like the gap has been allowed for by having 7 matches in October. Some early season tired legs!

Once again we have a home Boxing Day match and as I don't fancy staying in a hotel over Christmas I will be reduced to following it on Radio Tees and reading about the "best atmosphere of the season" at the Riverside.

My immediate concern is that the rail strikes may be extended into July (and onwards) making it even more of a problem for me to travel over. I will have to study the bus timetables though the 30 July kick off at 5:30 pm should make the journey possible with just the usual Saturday night hotel but 3:00 pm matches would I think mean 2 nights in a hotel which would stretch my finances.

Yes, looks like we're starting a week or two earlier than normal and packing fixtures into October to create a gap for the World Cup.

Will we have any players playing in Qatar of will we simply get a three-week rest?

McGree will be there. Even Payero.

And hopefully our new goalkeeper and one of the margue signings up-front! Whoever they are.

Up the Boro!

Marque signing even.

Sorry for a spelling mistake earlier. UBT!

Our first loan signing just announced on MFC website, Ryan Giles from Wolves.  

Despite being only 22 he has good experience at Championship level and over 100 EFL appearances.  Has had good spells at Cardiff and Blackburn.

Described as a left footed midfielder, I would  expect him to compete with Marc Bola for game time. 😎

Jarkko:

A marque is a brand or type and, in the case of cars, particularly high-value cars.  "The Silver Shadow was a classic of the Rolls Royce marque."

A marquee is (in the UK) a large tent, often used in commercial circumstances (many weddings involve a Reception where the guests can eat, drink & dance - in a marquee set up in the garden either of a large home or hotel and, during COVID many hotels with gardens or other space available, set up a marquee so that people could sit socially-distanced and outside when space inside might have meant the pub couldn't seat enough people to make it worthwhile opening) OR for social reasons (for Teesside DA's Temporary Holiday Site at Beadnell Bay in July/August, the Committee has just bought a new marquee which will be available for social occasions which will be useful especially if it is raining).  The Meccano-type exercise which will take place as we work out how to put it together for its first outing, will no doubt be "fun".

A mark, on the other hand is some sign or evidence that something has happened as in: "Cattermole's first tackle left its mark on Smith's shin."  Or a trade mark.  But bruises on opponents' shins were Cattermole's trade mark...

Not convinced  with some of the new players  apart from the goalkeeper. As for CW on about Marque signings, is that about selling season tickets.  Just saying. 😀 😀

In Rugby League, teams are allowed Marquee Players - I suspect Jarrko meant the equivalent in football.

‘Marquee’ meaning top class talent comes from the old travelling show days when circuses or other travelling shows used to perform in big tents - marquees as explained above - and the name of the star attraction  was written on the marquee to attract a crowd. Hence the term ‘marquee talent’ became used for the top stars who would attract a crowd.

If I might make do bold  but thay wax a marquee post there.

I like that. I never knew where the term marquee came from. Like so many have said pre iously, it really is s pleasure to read and learn in here. We all bring a little something valuable to the table .
