  10. Nothing to loose and all to gain and I’m not talking play offs. NW needs to use these games to measure the worth of each player and benefit to the team ready for next season. What is the point in continuing and rebuilding again at the start of next season when work can and should start now. Who is up for it, who brings value, reliable, worth keeping, what do we need.

  11. Hopefully a back 4 and whilst I fancy us to win, I can't help think that will guarantee defeat. Preston will play like Brazil, and we will hoof it with an injury to Bolasie due to too much jumping. 3 denied penalties, 2 of which are nailed on. One weak goal conceded. Then an offside equaliser that is ruled incorrectly offside. It's a tight one, but defeat is of course, inevitable.

  17. “Regulation 33.4 has been amended to permit: Championship Clubs to name up to nine substitutes in their matchday squad, with five permitted to take to the pitch in any fixture. League One and League Two Clubs to name up to seven substitutes in their matchday squad, again with five permitted to take to the pitch.” https://www.efl.com/news/2020/november/efl-statement-five-substitutes/ No mention of 3 times during open play this season, it's just 5 subs whenever as far as I can see.

  33. Yes I was thinking that, now that we can all watch the game at home it seems a bit pointless to keep typing what’s happening, then missing half the action. It really isn’t of any significance if you are the first one to type gooaaall! Or not. I shall also stick to pre match, post match and half time, let’s all show some decorum and concentrate on the match, it costs a tenner after all.

  35. Tonight I am not logging on to the forum during the game as I am fed up with NB4 letting me know what has happened before I am aware of it! Besides I get distracted when typing and have missed certain goals being scored

  44. There's definitely some truth to that. He has the right style, just a massive unknown if he can do it at senior level.

  45. Personally I want to see Samwise do more of what he did when he set up NML for our third goal. I think he has the quality, but for various reasons, he hasn't been able / allowed to show it.

    • Delighted to see AJ got absolutely battered by Usyk, I've been saying  for weeks that he was severely underestimating his opponent YET AGAIN. He's never going to fight Fury (probably a good thing, Fury would murder him!)

    • While we have a regressive Manager playing regressive football which as you say is the complete opposite to us except that when I actually type it it looks real scary. A regressive Manager playing regressive football. How bad can it get and where is it going to take us?  
    • Our fixtures become interesting after Sheffield United. Away to Hull next Saturday then we have a run of Home games to Peterborough and Barnsley then Away to Cardiff, Warnock's old Club who are struggling (although not quite as bad as ourselves), Home to Birmingham, Away to Luton before we go to the Hawthorns to face the Baggies on the 6th Nov. We then have two consecutive Home games against Millwall and Preston before a trip to Huddersfield on the 27th November. On paper there are some very "winnable" games amongst that lot so would it be fair to let Warnock have that run to save himself and get things back on track or is it too risky to let the performances continue and see those potential points frittered away like we have all year? It could be argued that it would be reasonable to give him those games but the reality is that we are seeing nothing that gives us any reason whatsoever that Warnock has a grip and is going to tun it around. There has been little logic, shape or reason as to how he sets his sides up. Our defence is as poor as I have seen from a Boro side in a long time. If we were solid at the back, keeping clean sheets while boring us to death there would at least be some merit in his thinking but porous doesn't begin to describe us. Our Midfield is a disjointed mess, they cant cover and shield the defence and they can't set up attacking passages of play. They seem to run around chasing back (or more likely chasing their man to mark) after we lose possession or running up chasing long punts, then running back again, then running up again meanwhile adding little of merit or quality. It's clear that it is due to tactics rather than them all being useless (including Howson in fairness). Their passing and ball retention is painful to watch rendering them a weak and ineffective unit regardless of personnel. The fact that we are lamenting the loss of a fairly basic clogger in Morsy illustrates just how desperate we have sunk and how low our expectations now are. Attack? I can only chuckle at the thought of us actually looking like we can attack and record efforts be they on or off target. With just about zero threat or opportunities, bereft of any quality of service we look hopeless.  Ikpeazu can be a real handful and Sporar has class yet neither seem to be effective in a Warnock side.  We have played many teams already with far fewer resources than Warnock has at his disposal and have been found wanting on each and every occasion with the exception of bottom of the table Forest who immediately sacked their Manager. Derby are a basket case and a collection of journeymen players and Rooney's nous (Rooney and nous in the same sentence is something I thought I would never be typing) but they comfortably nullified Warnock. Mark Robbins and Coventry (with their own set of off field issues for years) and limited budget of a side bettered us with ease. Reading with an inexperienced Keeper (not that it mattered as his Kit won't need to have been washed by the end of all that added time), and a defence consisting of midfielders square pegged into a makeshift defence kept us at bay with such ease it was demoralising. Then there was Blackpool and copy and paste. A terrible disorganised Defence, a Midfield that seemingly has a confused purpose and an Attack that rarely if ever threatens leaves me with little reason for optimism. I'm not even sure where to begin in terms of sorting it all out as it is so far off the ideal in every single department that it is scary as to how bad we have become and how likely it is to continue unabated because there are absolutely no signs of something clicking or even just misfiring. It's the dampest of damp squibs. Its like the end of Strachan and Mogga all over, all the signs are glaringly obvious and I suspect the players must think the same despite them being "a smashing bunch of lads really". If SG made a change now it could get worse but by how much? If he doesn't it could get better but again by how much? Weighing everything up I can't see anything to suggest anything but more of the same for the last quarter of the year and by that time we could be lamenting more lost points against mediocre to poor sides and seriously deep in relegation territory. Hull and Peterborough will be looking at their fixtures against us and seeing them as winnable six pointers, this against a side that had the Play Offs as the target only a few weeks back.    
    • Warnock shouldn't abuse referees. But I don't think boro fans should be calling our manager expletives online. It makes us all look silly. I imagine if we beat Sheffield United 3-0 then nobody will be calling him a p**** then. He won't be here much longer.
