At launch we held a record of every Boro’ game played since promotion to the Football League. This means everything from League’s 2 and 1 as well as the FA Cup, League Cup and Football League Trophy beginning with the 2-2 draw with Macclesfield on 7th August 2010.
What’s yet to come
The next stage will be to bring in the sixteen seasons of Conference football from 1994 to 2010, along with the participation in the above cup competitions and the FA Trophy. At this stage we’ll hold twenty years of data and the vast majority of Boro’ history. This, however, is just the easier bit – the outstanding challenges will be in getting data from 1976 to 1994 as well as all those weird and wonderful competitions you’d long forgotten about!
When we bring in a large new set of data we’ll make a big song and dance about it on the front page explaining the impact it has had on the permanent site features and that’ll no doubt also kick off some further historical analysis articles.
