  1. Apparently first thing this morning they were told by Leo to go and find the back of the net in training and haven't been seen since. Apparently the underwater search and rescue team are scouring the River Skerne but all they have found so far are around 300 balls presumably from Britt practicing Penalty Kicks down the years.

  4. Want to see malley play the last 3 games from the start now. He'll be high on confidence and if he can establish himself as an option for next season that will be a huge bonus to our summer dealings.

  5. If this is meant to prepare us for the worst, the worst being a *** summer before another *** season, I'd like Warnock to walk now. Don't big us up to be giving it a right old go next season if the feeling is we're gonna really struggle to get promoted. If we're gonna build a team in any way in this man's image this summer, it has to be built with promotion as the aim and that's it. If we're not expecting to challenge in any way, shape or form and it's all about Warnock 'giving it a go', get him out and get someone in who's actually going to begin the long-term process of building a side capab

  6. A more pleasing performance, certainly from a footballing perspective. We tried to actually pass and move and play it short. Rotherham weren’t great, but credit where credit is due. I enjoyed that game. Buzzing to see Malley play so well as mentioned earlier, he looked like he cared and it shone through with his game and energy. I hope we keep this positive momentum til the end of the season.

  7. Yes, but you can't order at the bar. In some places you walk past the bar to then sit outside in a covered area to order. Then if you need the loo you can go back inside past the bar and to the loo. But importantly you can't sit inside or walk upto the bar. Simple.

  11. Connor Malley. If you are reading this on the team bus home, never change. Be hungry for that ball and zip about. What a breath of fresh air you have been to watching the boro. We actually look like we want to play football because we have a player who looks up for it and comfortable with the ball at his feet. GWAN LAD

  12. In this day and age no longer can we stereo type anyone and only by accepting this can we really move forward. There is no need for comments pertaining anyone be it race, creed and colour and religion. The comment made by CT though made in jest simply is a thing of the past and we all must strive to be above that

  13. FWIW, the players look pretty chirpy warming up for the second half. If there's friction in the squad, it's not obvious tonight.

  18. That's entirely possible but to me the issue is that he isn't ready to be a first choice starter, however he's being picked like he is, and then being judged like he is. I think people might have misunderstood my defending the lad at times. I don't think he's a great player, and I don't think he needs to be in the side every week. He's just someone I see with potential. A player like Morsy, for example, has reached the peak of what they are. He'll never be more than he is now. Spence can be more than he is now although it's certainly not guaranteed.

  19. That Gazette article is *** miserable, Jesus Christ. They really are *** nowadays. It didn't take a super human effort to keep us in the league last season, it only took a half competent manager. We were in no danger of relegation before Woodgate proceeded to fail to beat Wigan, Barnsley and Luton in quick succession and go 3 months without a win. The relentless negativity from the Gazette and from Warnock himself is just laying the groundwork for an early exit at this rate. Pathetic.

  20. Heh. Yeah - with Boro entertainment tends to be the exception rather than the norm. But I agree for the majority of football fans...including most of us, I guess, football is so much more than just entertainment. Its about where you're from, its often a family thing, its tradition, its tribal, it can be about a sense of belonging. Sometimes it can be as silly as just liking the kit, or a particular player. I mean the first team I ever followed (followed, not supported) as a kid were Spurs...simply because I liked the kit and because Gary Lineker was playing for them at the time.

  22. I'm desperate for us to win this, but yeah, a Rotherham win would put them a point behind Derby with 2 games in hand, they could do it. Derby and Sheffield Wednesday both going down would be a beautiful karmic punishment to terrible owners.

  25. I really hope we can sort out something with Bolaise for next season.I know he had a few too many shots from distance today but he is so positive,drives forward at every opportunity and has a goal in him.Give him a proper pre season and he could be massive for us.

  36. His elbow was clearly leading and hits Hall's throat too ... Yes it was a clash of heads that did the damage, but that elbow was dangerous ... If i drive 100 mph drunk, but don't hit anyone, I should be punished anyway!

  39. That line up plus Tav, Fisher, Fry, Dijksteel, Morsy and Browne is the core of next season's squad. Take out the loan players and those whose contracts are up in the summer and it doesn't leave much. Interesting that while Warnock cleared a few out last season who weren't interested in playing he has done the same again this season but both times has trusted Johnson. Despite what some may think of Johnson he at least has professional integrity and honours his contract. If anyone had a genuine reason to be in a huff after his contribution in the first half of the season only to be dropped

  45. It's going to sound like I'm going on, but I don't really care - players are coached in a different way from youth level now adays. They aren't allowed to head the ball, English football has taken a turn towards the more technical, European style with less of an emphasis on physical attributes. As a result, logically there will be less players knocking around that will fit right into warnocks preferred style of play to an effective level. It's why these old school coaches are slowly but surely becoming redundant, they just don't fit the ethos of the game anymore - Bruce won't last past th

  46. I enjoyed last night so much, I made myself a bowl of nachos and flicked between BBC News and SSN for a happy hour. However, now it's the morning after the night before, I agree with other posters this entire affair could be quietly airbrushed from history, like that time you farted in front of the vicar that nobody ever talks about. Even though it stank the place out and he left soon afterwards. I don't think PL points deductions would achieve much, since the Premier League has trundled on unaffected, and it should really be sacrosanct. Instead, hit the b**tards where it hurts. Ban those

  47. All 12 teams should be banned from European competition for at least two years along with a hefty fine that goes directly into grassroots football. It won't happen in all likelihood, but that's the outcome I'm hoping to see.

    • we need the players to play with it on the group in tight areas to. most of our squad players dont and just lump it. because of the instructions they are given. that is probably because like we seen under woodgate, they are not good enough to play and will lose possession and cause us problems. the main thing with woodgate tactics was losing the ball and instantly putting ourselves in trouble and outnumbering with guys all over the shop. NW stopped that by making us more rigid in shape and telling them to not dally and lump it over the top. at least that's how i see it in a simplified way.
    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
    • with fry playing we never seem to get done in behind the defense. without him it seems nearly every game. dijksteel and tavs work rate and energy on the right side. they dominated every team we played on that side. we missed one of them but once both were out team never looked the same. next season if we keep bolasie and he is linking with tav and has dijksteel over lapping all the space those two will create i'm sure he would be thriving. we get the correct forward in with him and i'm positive for next season. easier said than done though. we need a keeper who is competent in shot stopping and commanding his area.  
    • Starting with the backs, no massive surprises in terms of who has been selected, barring Aki and Daly. But Daly can cover nearly every backline position, so it makes some sense in taking him, then it makes sense Aki is going as he fills a Tuliagi/Roberts shaped hole of previous tours. The biggest surprise in the backs for me is not having at least one or two of J.Davies, Slade or Ringrose. The forwards is where there are some big omissions; James Ryan, Billy V, CJ Stander or Underhill plus a very distinct lack of English props. Lawes being included despite his injury is a strange one, then Conan and Hill are two big surprises for me too. Sam Simmonds being involved is not a shock at all for me. I do not envy the selectors at all!
