  2. Indeed I think both Saturday games are tough to call. Ireland have a fully fit team and probably had the wake up call after Japan. That game will come down to whether Ireland score regularly when on the attack. New Zealand show time and time again they can score at any point whether on top or under the cosh. I'm going to go for a shock here for Ireland. England should be favourites based on past games against them and I think they will edge Australia but will be who has the bottle. I'm thinking under a 5 point margin. But think South Africa and Wales will win their quarter finals on Sunday. That said Japan have been a joy to watch and would have hurt most teams in that 40 odd minute spell they had against Scotland. I think they must be banging on the door for regular top tier test matches. My semi finalists are Ireland England South Africa and Wales.
  3. It's my tried and tested Championship Manager 01/02 system. I expect success with it.
  4. Randolph has just saved a penalty. Although not looking too promising for the Irish here as down to 10 men.

  7. To be fair to Woodgate he wasnt supported in the transfer window. Our attacking play and service to the forwards has been criticised in the past few seasons yet we only brought Browne in to strengthen that area. It doesn't excuse how we have become so poor defensively and it has surprised me how given what a great defender Woodgate was that we have such a lightweight back 4. Is that all down to Woodgate or the lack of backing. He wanted 4 players in the last week or so of the window and got nobody in. I'm very much on the fence with Woodgate I would love him to succeed here but we are in a difficult position where he is learning on the job and the errors are costing us massively. Bar Randolph our big players havent stepped up either. Overall the past couple of seasons it's probably the most distant I have felt as a Boro fan. I still follow and support them but I just dont feel the bitterness or annoyance after a defeat or the jubilation of a good win. There was a time if Boro were on the telly I would watch it no matter what last week I watched Spurs Bayern instead ?.
  8. I have mentioned before I would like a fan forum/Radio Tees etc to have an open discussion with Gibson like he did on the 3 legends years ago. I think more fans would be accepting or the recent plight with open and honest discussion about where we are and what we are trying to do. His denial of any financial struggles during JWs appointment interview contradicted what we did during the transfer window. That said I cant see it happening given the reception he had after the "smash the league" and "more Sunderland fans in Stockton" have led to a lot of criticism post the interviews.
  9. Everyone has to see the Joker Joaquin Phoenix was phenomenal in it.
  10. H Bristol Cty v Reading. H Derby v Luton. D Huddersfield v Hull. D Millwall v Leeds...(Bamford) H N.Forest v Brentford. A Preston NE. v Barnsley. H QPR v Blackburn. H Sheff Wed v Wigan. H Swansea v Stoke. H WBA v Cardiff.
  11. I think Wales need another score as think the Aussies will nick a late try here. The Welsh defence look tired.
  12. It seems to have the makings of another Welsh heroic defeat here. Dominate the Aussies for most of the game then Australia nick it right at the end. But yes Hooper should have been in the bin for his challenge.
  13. Today's a good marker for how good the Welsh are. They have a poor record against the southern hemisphere teams. It would be interesting to see if they played every team as if they were England they seem to raise their level for that fixture. Good start by them though
  14. On the plus side the team winning has a lovely kit... We are trying to arrange a next goal the winner agreement with them now.
