  1. I probably haven’t posted on here in a good 10 years but lurk regularly, tonight was at a bus stop in south london with A guy who turned out to be Nicky Bailey. I was probably about 12 when he played for the boro and he was absolutely delighted that a boro fan recognised him. Had a good conversation about him and boro back in the day under Mowbray..
  2. Must win game this one - they've had a dreadful start to the season and anything less than a convincing victory will be disappointing. I wouldn't be surprised if one or two players are rotated for this as we have played so many games recently. Kiké Reach Downing Adomah Leadbitter Forshaw Friend Gibson Ayala Kalas Dimi As people have said, Fabbrini looked very tired when he was taken off and he has played every game so far. Im far from convinced by Reach but i would like to have d
  3. Anyone know roughly how many tickets will be available on the door tomorrow night? I've got the offer of a lift there & back but I don't want to risk going and not being able to get a ticket
  4. I would really love Dwight Gayle. Think he would score just as many as rhodes
  5. It's CB not RB I'm worried about. Only Gibson & Ayala as senior centre backs now. Hopefully Bennett/Halliday prove they are good enough to cover for Kalas.
  6. Is Bryn Morris still injured or just not involved with the first team? He hasn't been mentioned with the names of youth players training with the first team & he isn't in the squad today.
  7. A few interesting names on the premier league released lists - Adam Campbell: 20 years old now, obviously very highly rated a few years back. Surely worth a look as he could still turn out to be a very good player. Tom Thorpe: Man United u21 captain last season. Centre back - not young at 22 but he could be someone that could break into the first team squad in 2016/17 if he had a good year out on loan. Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill: 19 year old left back from ***nal. Surprised to see him let go as my ***nal supporting mates always say he looks like one of the brighter prospects in their u
  8. Pretty sure we were linked with Borja under Mowbray. He would seem a likely target, especially as we have connections with athletico.
  9. Sell Leadbitter? Would be an absolutely awful decision. We wouldn't even get very much for him as he is 29 now. As for a goalkeeper, Ben Amos from man United? I believe he is out of contract and has said he will be leaving. Did well at Bolton this season according to their fans.
  10. Darren Bent would be perfect to replace Bamford, probably well out of reach now though.
  11. Just coming home after the game, Best game I have ever been to, fantastic atmosphere, utter cynical play for 90 minutes, brilliant
  12. How many times have we heard our play described as 'too pedestrian' on the commentary recently. We need something out of somewhere. Wildschut May be a gamble that needs to be taken at half time unfortunatlely because he is the only player I can see making the big impact that is needed.
  13. And knock the confidence of our best defender if Ayala gets injuried and Woody tried/injuried going into the run of fixtures that could be the club's most important for the last 8 years? Never. Karanka showed he wasn't scared to do a similar thing when he took off omeruo at half time a while ago. His confidence will have already been knocked. And, based on today, I disagree that he is better than Gibson or omeruo anyway. Also, I'm not have saying I would have done it, just I would do it sooner than take tomlin or reach off.
  14. Bit suprised that people are calling for Tomlin & reach to come off, neither have been too bad and Tomlin has made some nice passes. If anyone comes off it has to be kalas for omeruo.
  15. Very poor 45 minutes. Nsue needs to stay further back because he's pushing up far to high in my opinion. The centre backs just need to pull themselves together and I'm confident they will at half time. If we manage to sort the defence out I think the rest will improved because I think We've just been shocked by them going forward. I wouldn't neccesarily make any changes at half time to be honest.
  16. Great to see Richie Smallwood has had a good season at rotherham! http://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/rotherham/rotherham-united-fans-have-their-say-in-millers-player-of-the-year-poll-1-7153783
  17. Woodgate is still a class act, adomah was Great, bamford did his his Job in scoring. Poor game Quality wise but who cares when we're top of the league! UTB
  18. Is Woodgate still fit? If he is I would probably pick him next to Kalas.

    Adam Reach

    I thought he was fine today, nothing special and did waste a good opportunity but he also put a few decent balls in and was secure in his passing, control etc. Didn't have a great game but neither was he as bad as lots of people are making out.
  20. Sat in traffic on the way back from the game, it was one of the best performances I have ever seen live from the Boro, so frustrating how the ball just wouldn't hit the back of the net. I can't complain and say we weren't good enough, we did everything we could apart from score. Kike was outstanding in the second half after a poor first half and mejias was solid throughout although wasn't challenged too much. Leadbitter was the only one at fault for the goal as far as I'm concerned, he didn't come towards the ball and their player robbed him too easily. A special mention must go to Kalas, a
  21. The midfield clearly needs rotating as Clayton and leadbitter both look in need of rests. Possibly leadbitter and forshaw Wednesday night and then Clayton and forshaw against leeds? Reach should come back on the left and if Nsue is ready again after African cup of nations I would be tempted to play him on the right. Give bamford a break, he's probably played the most minutes recently bar adomah out of all of our attacking players and he's only 21. Kike Reach. Tomlin. Nsue Leadbitter. Forshaw Friend. Gibson. Omeruo.
  22. That attacking threat from ***nal is a different level, really wish we had ayala and Kalas at the back because omeruo and fredericks really worry me based on when I last saw them against Brentford..
  23. I see the challenging away fixtures as opportunities for us to really nail down our place in the auto spots, forcing our rivals into dropping points rather than dangerous games where we could lose ground on the leading pack. We're easily a match for anyone in this league and if we rise to the occasion during that tough run of games in March we could see ourselves open up a gap at the top. Positivity!
  24. Charlie Wyke scored for carlisle earlier, good start for him there.
  25. Mejias is playing well generally but twice he has Parried the ball straight back into the danger area, I hope it doesn't cost us
