  1. Not sure I’ve ever seen a player put such horrific deliveries in with such consistency, it’s almost commendable.
  2. As soon as we get around the box we just have no idea what to do with it. Delivery, on the whole, is poor and we neither have the movement off the ball or the ability on it to cut them open.
  3. Utterly ridiculous goal to conceded
  4. Interesting to see what you can do when you give your players the belief and confidence to take risks and play positive football, rather than scream at them until they punt it into the corner at the first sign of pressure.
  5. Not a link in any way but if we're looking at Strikers that have done it in lower divisions and are available, Tyler Walker from Forest wouldn't be a bad addition to Britt and Fletcher. 22 Goals in 46 goals for Mansfield in League 2 a couple of seasons ago and 14 in 29 for Lincoln in League 1 last season. Only scored 4 goals in the Championship in 19 games for Forest, but only 8 starts. Seems like he's not going to get a chance at Forest and there's a bit of talk of him going back on loan to league one
  6. He was probably never in our thinking but Kieran Dowell has just signed for Norwich from Everton for an undisclosed fee. I thought he would have been ideal to fill our creative void and he'll suit their style of play well.
  7. Whilst we're on the subject of Wigan players, I've always rated Kieran Dowell. He's had 4 loan spells now in the Championship from Everton and at 22 you'd think they will want to move him on permanently fairly soon. He was brilliant at Forest a few years ago and has had some hit and miss spells since, but he's exactly the type of player we've missed in recent years. Someone who can unlock defences and score goals arriving late from midfield.
  8. Britt should never have come back into the side. He’d done nothing before his injury to say he should be in as soon as he’s fit. He looks miles off the pace anyway and has stifled at least two promising attacking positions. Nmecha would be a much better option at the moment.
  9. Living just over a mile away from the City Ground this is the shortest trip of the season for me. Historically it's not been a ground for great Boro games but in my two previous visits I've not seen us lose. A 0-0 draw in 2012 that took us to 2nd in the table apparently, and a 1-2 win in 2015 with goals from Nugent and Ayala and a late penalty save from Dimi to hold on to 3 points and take us to 2nd in the table again. No chance of 2nd tonight but I'm feeling foolishly optimistic about getting a result. They've not been great at home and we've not won yet on the road. I didn't see the game on Saturday but it sounds as though it was one of our better, if not the best, performance of the season. The only issue being we haven't put in two successive good performances yet this season, so it would have to be a first if we're going to get something from the game. Hopefully Britt is fit enough to play and make an impact, reading their forum it seems as though they don't fancy their centre halves' chances against a fully fit Britt and they're buzzing that he might miss the game. I'm hoping that the fearlessness of the young academy lads will help us repeat Saturday's performance and I'm going to go for a foolhardy 1-2 away win. Not a disaster if we don't take anything and a point would be great. The big home games coming up are the real tests.

    Not the first time either, 69m was written off in the first season in the Championship in 2009

    I think the 56m figure is referring to the total amount of transfer fees owed, which has accumulated from us structuring deals over time

    Not the most recent but there's a fairly useful and comprehensive breakdown of the club's finances in the first two seasons back in the Championship in this twitter thread:
  13. Shambolic positioning from Shotton, not surprising, that’s what you get for playing such a limited player completely out of position
