  3. The big worry for me is not only is woodgate not getting the best from any player, but a handful have actually regressed. Wing, Clayton, Fry, Britt are looking pretty poor this season. Thats why I think it’s harsh to judge Dijksteel and Bola when even our established players are not playing well.

    Steve Gibson

    It’s ironic that the gazette slated karanka after he got sacked saying stuff like he took total control over the club etc, now Gibson wanted it back. Well if that’s true that he took total control maybe karanka should be the one running the club, he took us from bottom half to premiership in 3 seasons. Yes it went pear shaped but he left us £180m better off and in a far better state than he found us. Now that the saviour has took control he’s took us right back to where we started within 3 seasons. Interestingly, a team down the road who are apparently a ‘laughing stock’ employed another villain from that era, victor Orta, who has spent a total of £11m (not including loan fees) putting together a team that is 2nd. All the evidence is there that our hierarchy can no longer run a football club, badly let down our best manager in years and we’re to egotistical to accept any of the blame after ripping up anything karanka had touched.
  6. We have had spells of better play in other games too... Bristol City, Luton and Brentford springs to mind. And last WBA was the most recent game and hopefully an indicator of more like it to come, which will se us harvest enough points to survive this "transitional" season 😉
  7. Yes. Even if it meant selling Randolph. We badly need strategic governance and a long-term plan. Since Aitor left, we've been rudderless and disorganised as a club, which is largely why we're now staring into the abyss of League One and comparing ourselves to STID-season-one Sunderland. It feels like nobody has really been in charge behind the scenes for a long time, and I don't believe for one second Pulis was involved in the 'root and branch reforms he claimed to be. A well chosen DoF could develop a five-year plan for the club and oversee it's execution. Without a plan (or even a recognisable identity on the pitch), we will gradually sell all our best players and then limp along in the lower reaches of the Championship until either (a) Gibson sells the club or (b) we luck out with another manager who can take £100,000 signings and turn them into players who are among the best in the league. A plan, a plan, my keeper for a plan...
  8. yeah okay, agreed, that game was better, but that doesn't excuse the growing amount of garbage games before it.
  9. I agree with Wilson. Three main sections would be much cleaner - all things Boro, non-Boro football, and everything else. It'd be great to see more activity and threads in the non-football section - what do you put on your chips*, how to resolve the Brexit impasse at Westminster**, the best bass player of all time***, etc. (* Cheese and curry sauce ** Second referendum *** Cliff Burton)
  10. He'd actually do a job in our team at the minute
  11. Sounds good to me. Quite a lot of stuff to keep the general forum going if you pack all that into it, rather than say split it down into different types of sub-forum. One all-purpose nattering section for anything not related to Boro. My only suggestion would be maybe sectioning out football topics from non-football topics. Stuff like Non-Boro Football still feels like it has a place in either the main sub-forum or perhaps better would be a more generic Football sub-forum of its own. So you have Boro, Football and then General. Something like that.
  12. Fun Fact: Carlos De Pena is Dynamo Kyiv's second top scorer with 4 goals in 11 games this season 😛
  13. I think we played exciting v WBA .. 17 shots and 7 on target .. 6 corners
  14. Quite possible with all the unrest in the stands.
  15. Fully support this. There isn’t enough traffic in tbe sub forums to warrant their own forum and feedback I’ve seen says people would rather have an all-in-one general section, so I think it’s a good move 👍🏼
  16. Mine was late 71👍
  17. Hey, After some feedback before the international break about restructuring the forum, the subject came up again in the New Server thread. As such, we're looking to get feedback on restructuring the forum to keep Boro debate in the "Boro Forum" and shuffle forums around for a dedicated "General" section. We're thinking... MIDDLESBROUGH FC - Boro Forum (with all topics from Boro Youths & Reserves Forum merged into it) - Match Day Threads 2019/20 Season GENERAL/NON BORO - All things Non-Boro (with all topics from Music, Television and Cinema, Video Gaming and Geeks corner and Other stuff merged into it. Topics such as Music, Films and TV Series, The chattybox - anything EXCEPT football, NFL talk 19/20 will be moved to this new section). The idea that NFL/England/Premier League/TV/Gaming/etc... can all have threads of their own in here. ONEBORO GAMES - This will remain as is ONEBORO MATCH DAY THREAD ARCHIVE - This will remain as is We're looking to hear your views on this, and if this is something that gets the thumbs up, we can go ahead and implement it. Cheers!
  18. Think I'm second in terms of the year. Old Codger way out in front in 1962;I was 1973 so says Erimus.
  19. This is what really pisses me off the most. I'd still care, but probably not as much, if we were 4th bottom but were at least playing exciting football. The fact that he did a complete 180 on his style of play inside a month winds me up no end.
  20. Boro 4-2 Wolves 17/8/89 Slaven x2, Proctor, Davenport.
  21. My first and only (so far) Fulham away 27 september 1986 2-2
  22. D Birmingham v Blackburn. H Millwall v Cardiff. A P.N.E. v Leeds. H Q.P.R. v Reading. D Sheff Wed: v Stoke. H Bristol Cty v Charlton. H Derby v Wigan. D Fulham v Luton. A Huddersfield v Middlesbrough. (Britt) H N.Forest v Hull.
  23. Erimus you are the oracle, the fountain of all knowledge Boro!
  24. I thought similarly regarding that Saville chance, CT. When watching it back, my first thought was is there a defender blocking his view of that corner? I don't think there was, I think it was reasonable enough for him to pick that corner, the keeper was naturally closer to the near post which meant the shot would have had to been something special to beat him on that side. It was an alright effort but Johnstone had been having a strong game in goal, he wasn't letting one in on his near post.
  25. It was a reasonable chance but not a nailed on goal. It's on his left foot and he's hitting it first time. Because of the way the ball got to him, their goalkeeper was able to close the gap quite a bit between him and Assombalonga, and that made it an easier save. I'd be more critical if he'd missed the target. I thought the two best chances of the day fell to Fletcher and to Saville when Tavernier set him up - that one to me should have been a goal and if he'd placed it in the other corner around the defender instead of placing it straight at the keeper then he'd have scored. That's actually what he did when he set up Fletcher's chance afterwards.
  26. That would surprise me a great deal. I think that's just a rehash of the same rumour that has been going around for years.
