Boro Team as Schoolboys
Boro Team as Schoolboys
Reproduced by Kind Permission OF Hazel Clay an avid Boro fan who is always writing on Twitter. I enjoyed it so much I thought it was worth sharing with my fellow Diasborians.
Took me ages to get to sleep last night because my brain insisted on creating a thread of Boro players at school.
So here it is.
Boro players at school - a thread:
GRANT HALL. Shows up each morning looking like he's just completed a full 90 in his uniform. Hands in homework that genuinely looks like the dog chewed it. Never has a pen, chews gum and sticks it under the desk. Laces always undone. https://t.co/Hb4fWkeafv
DAEL FRY. Quiet kid, a bit grumpy. No-one really knows him well. Got bullied a bit when he was younger but then started to grow and launched a bully across the classroom, and that was the end of that. https://t.co/lw0G1yGnBv
MATT CROOKS. Class clown. Never does any work but makes teachers laugh. Sticks up for smaller kids. Generally agreed he'd be undefeated in a fight but this has never been tested since the only person likely to want to fight him is... https://t.co/GBClzNZsuR
...ONEL HERNANDEZ who spends most of his time in detention, sometimes even suspended, for doing everything from handing homework in late to bringing his pet tarantula to school. Rumoured to be having an affair with a teacher, a rumour he started himself some time ago. https://t.co/dYbk49JJ5i
MARCUS TAVERNIER. Annoys all the teachers by constantly arguing with them and nit-picking everything. Makes out that he knows more than they do. This is especially irritating when he turns out to be right. https://t.co/08Z04WIBbu
ANDRAZ SPORAR. Parents are loaded and he always has the newest clobber as soon as it hits the shelves in JD, which stays looking brand new. Fresh trim every half term. Girls love him. https://t.co/934iCk2liH
PADDY MCNAIR. The Contraband King. Specialises in booze and fags as he can get served in the corner shop and sells fags on as singles, making a huge profit. Dad runs a FB page flogging knockoff trainers. Likes to blow stuff up in science but never gets into trouble. https://t.co/C1v300xa5I
JOSH COBURN. Nice kid but a bit naive and easily led. Generally ends up taking the flak for everything Paddy McNair does but never dobs him in. Teachers take pity on him in detention and help him with his homework. https://t.co/Is3I8Tv17J
DUNCAN WATMORE. Straight A student. Not particularly swotty, everything is just easy for him. This, combined with him being ginger, should make him a prime target for bullies, but somebody tried it on when he was in Y9 and they were never seen or heard of again. https://t.co/BliQ1XfYSy
MARC BOLA. Bright, bubbly kid who is always smiling. In any given class photo, is guaranteed to be the one sat at the front and pulling a funny face. Whenever you see him, he's always with his best mate... https://t.co/N3JAIITGln
...ANFERNEE DIJKSTEEL, who the teachers love because he's so low-maintenence. Never needs help with his work and never causes any bother. Goes off sick in the middle of term and they send him Get Well cards. Good grades despite low attendance. https://t.co/dZkcGZEt97
MARTIN PAYERO. New lad who everyone wants to befriend. Joins in with everything that's going on even when he hasn't a clue. Avoids any teacher trouble by being very polite. Girls like him because he's cute and shy. https://t.co/gGMctV8xUk
ISIAH JONES. Quiet kid but popular because he's good at sports. On the footy team and wins the Inter-Schools 100m final 3 years running, earning him a spot in the local paper and school bragging rights. https://t.co/YeAk9HNMRM
UCHE IKPEAZU. Not been in the area long. A full year older than everyone else but joined in Y10 at 16 so he could do GCSEs. Dad owns a business which he'll take over when he's old enough. https://t.co/NcVr97JxHq
THE GOALKEEPERS. Nice bunch of lads who hang around together and are almost indistinguishable from each other unless you look really closely. Not really in with the crowd but don't get bullied as there's nothing to bully. Girls notice them in Y11 when they all get tall. https://t.co/tlppMu92Xj
Nice one Hazel and thanks for lifting this out of Twittersphere and posting here Bob.
SAMMY AMEOBI. His Dad’s in the army so he’s always moving schools. Spent a term here in Y9 and quickly became a popular kid but moved away before he’d established himself with his classmates. Registered to come back in the summer but hasn’t turned up yet.
Nice idea, Hazel Clay!
I supppose if you had to do one about the staff.... Chris Wilder, Leo (!!), Neil Bausor, Steve Gibson....
Many thanks to OFB for both the latest Headliners. Good efforts, especially cribbing from Hazel.
Lazy attitude OFB, 500 lines of “thou shall not crib” 😂
Thanks Hazel and Bob for forwarding - a breath of fresh air and a light to lift the winter gloom.
@forever-dormo Perhaps you could do that part of the "teachers". And Gibbo, the headmaster ...
Up the Boro!
ive added it to Hazel's Twitter feed on the theme !
She thought it was brilliant 🤩
she wants to join Diasboro but can’t get in through the portal link I sent her!
@jarkko; Not sure it would be as good as Hazel's version. So let's hope she can log on with Diasboro and she can add the board/staff versions later...? Of maybe OFB could suggest to her the sort of Part II we have in mind?
