  1. With regards to Diedhiou, I think the main differences between his game and that of Britt's are his movement in the box and his height advantage. Certain strikers come alive in the box and know how to position themselves to get on the end of the balls being put in there. Having seeing the Bristol lad in action he anticipates very well. By that I mean he looks like he can see what type of cross is on and adjust his own position. For example if the ball is going to be stood up to the back post he will drop off and get a run on the defender or if it looks like it will be driven in then he'll

    Exactly. This forum is pure football. Need to keep that sort of talk off here. Comeonboro and FMTTM are both there for that.
  3. I can't really argue with that. We are not privy to the financial details of those deals. I just look at Moore and the goals he scores and think how much of a perfect fit he is for us. I do though, and this might sound crazy, have big hopes that Fletcher can turn himself into a similar type of player under Warnock. It's all about instilling a mean nasty streak into him because he has all the attributes. Moore up top and Fletcher just off him with the amount of crosses we put in the area would have scared the bajesus out of championship defences. Interesting point about Bolasie too. I hadn

    Supporting Brexit does not make me racist and I'll have words with you personally if you are suggesting I am. Quit it. No place for that. 😡
  5. Here's a little question for you. Where do you think we would be in the league if the club had got Warnock the two attacking players he really wanted in Kieffer Moore and Yannick Bolasie? For my part, I look at our style of play and how much we are crying out for an out and out right winger and a player that has the physical attributes, desire and nasty streak to get on the end of crosses that get put in the box. Those two would have made a huge difference to us in terms of goalscoring. I don't think an extra ten goals so far already this season is an exaggeration. Huge error of
  6. I'll assume all 281 of you agree with everything I wrote then. That's a first. 😂 Happy new year. ✌️
  7. The morning after another hugely frustrating night for Boro fans. Once again we find ourselves bemoaning missed opportunities and a lack of cutting edge. It was the same old story at Hillsborough that it has been numerous times already this season. The players produced an energetic display and ran themselves into the turf but lacked a clinical, ruthless streak that is so important at the business end of the league. I'll give you a prime example. Early on in the game with the score at 0-0, Marvin Johnson wriggles free on the left hand side of the Owls penalty area. For one of the few
  8. I championed this lad last season when he was getting slated. I looked at his physical attributes and thought he would be worth a go in a holding midfield role but goodness me the lad has shone like a star playing in defence this season. He is strong and powerful with a great turn of pace but I've been extremely impressed with how he has held his own in aerial battles too. If you also add to that his reading of the game and how comfortable he is on the ball then it's even more impressive. I've noticed one or two weaknesses in terms of his positioning and concentration at times where
  9. I'm expecting a very different game to the one in which they triumphed in the League Cup a couple of weeks ago. We will have a much stronger side out than that day and I think having played them once and seen the full extent of how they like to play and their gameplan that evening is a big advantage. On that League Cup showing they came and played on the break looking to exploit the spaces down the flanks that were left by our attacking wing backs. We will have learnt from that and a couple of minor changes will make a big difference today. Firstly, ball retention must improve. This
  10. I just totted up the last 6 games of the season as form guides are usually 6 games long. Apologies if it's not worked out right. Either way, we were averaging more than two points for every three games played so it's a moot point. WE HAVE NOT MADE REAL PROGRESS 😂
  11. Warnock took charge of six games last season with last season's squad of players. From those six games we took 12 points. Then during the summer he lost eleven first teamers and has only been allowed to recruit four as it stands. With this season's squad we have taken 2 points from our opening three games. Even if we win our next three games we will still have taken less points than the six from last season. If you call that real progress then you are part of the problem.
  12. Due to the manager and his coaching staff.
  13. The only reason we have improved as a squad is due to Neil Warnock. He himself mentioned we were glaringly short on numbers and quality yet he has lost eleven and recruited just four. So yes, in terms of numbers and quality we are indeed in a worse state than last season. Everyone can see it apart from the club, the media stooges and a small number of blinkered supporters
  14. but still need that little bit of oomph. Who pays these journalists a wage? We are worse than last season in terms of both numbers and quality. What a nonsense article by a clown of a journalist who, and this shows how bad the others are, is the best the Gazette has to offer. This smacks of an attempt by the club via the local rag to prepare the fans for no more signings. We were three or four players short last season and have lost eleven first teamers since then and only added four. Do the club and the Gazette think we are all morons?
  15. You do realise we received a fee in excess of £20 million for a player who couldn't get a look in under Karanka and Monk? I'd say that's benefitted the club in the long term
  16. I can name quite a few but the glaringly obvious one is playing and developing Traore. Step out of that mist of hatred and bias, open your eyes and give a balanced opinion.

    I am neither a racist nor a bigot and I'll have words with anyone who says otherwise. Absolutely guaranteed you post on fmttmboro with an attitude like that.
  18. Bamford demanded assurances that he would be first choice when fit. he never got them. He then, through his representatives, engineered a move away. This is how it went from start to finish of his exit process.

    What has happened to comeonboro by the way? I tried to access it yesterday and it was down.

    I quite like the comeonboro forum. I visit once a week, usually on matchdays or the day after. It can be quite amusing. I don't post on that other one fmttmboro and having read it its probably for the best that I don't. Such an arrogant and intolerant site, hardly a forum, more a soap box for those who have the same opinions on everything in the world who want those opinions validated with hearty back slaps.
  21. This is an interesting read to see how far we have come since the initial outbreak. Any more beer deals by the way? 😂
  22. 1. Three million euros is not three million pounds. 2. I'm almost certain the transfer fee could rise to three million euros with add ons etc. Initially around 1.5. 3. When did loads of you start being accountants instead of fans? I want good players here and I dont care about how much it costs 4. Akpom is a Warnock type striker. Big and strong and direct. 5. We will bring one more striker and a creative player in next. Zohore on loan and possibly Roberts.
  23. It looks as though the pair will not be offered new deals as we are linked with another left back, this time Fox at Sheffield Wednesday. Friend has been a great servant but is becoming increasingly injury prone and, in the modern game, his alarming lack of pace is a real hindrance. I think he may be retained but only in a player coach capacity. Johnson is solid enough and does a job but is not a natural full back and I don't see him challenging for a more advanced role. He has been a model pro for us and has always been complimentary about the area but business is business and we can pro
