  1. Newcastle's take over is complete... Aye, they're our rivals. But I've always admired the Toon fans for their dedication. Today is a sad day for true, honest football.
  2. Probably should've used my 'taking the ***' emoji... πŸ™ƒ
  3. You win the feeling of shame at a life wasted. That is what you win.
  4. Berahino strikes me as the sort of player Warnock would say he "couldn't believe was available" and he would "take tomorrow" sadly. Hopefully the latter quote is true. πŸ™ƒ
  5. Mate I'm not bothered how attractive you find them. What are they like as footballers? πŸ™ƒ
  6. It surely depends on personnel and/or roles? I'm definitely not saying they're in the same boat, but will PSG be playing 1 up top with Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe in a 4-3-3? I wouldn't say so... 4-3-3 features Left & Right Forwards as opposed to Wingers - completely different roles. If you're playing 2 wingers, you're either playing 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-2-1.
  7. Only against Gibraltar, which is pretty much a National League standard side. Against any half decent opposition's he's part of a 4-3-3, and even then International defences and Championship defences are very different in terms of the football played. We've just got rid of 3 strikers who weren't suited to that job. Expecting Sporar to play that role would be naΓ―ve. But, for me, it's good he can't - because it suggests a 2/3 up top, which we absolutely need.
  8. Sporar is not a lone striker. Anyone expecting him to play that role will be very disappointed. That said, this is Boro. And Warnock. So we'll probably play him in a 9-0-1 formation to negate every last one of his strengths. πŸ™ƒ
  9. Trying to work out what system(s) we'd play with these most recent links... A fluid 4-2-3-1/4-4-2? 4-3-3? 3-5-2? Each has their benefits, but each also has at least one 'key' player struggling to slot in. Assuming the rumoured signings go though, that list includes Tav, Sporar, Hernandez, and McGrath if he came too. Suggests to me it's not going to be a single system season.
  10. I've always liked Hernandez when I've seen him play. He's quick, powerful, can finish - always seems to have an influence on games whether starting or coming on as a sub. Struck me as a player who reads the game well from the bench and is able to manipulate openings and spaces from that. Canny player, when fit.
  11. I remember saying during the Pulis saga - especially around the time Paddy left - that we shouldn't believe a single word that came out of TPs mouth. I'm going to echo that sentiment with Warnock. He always does this; any even slight hint of underachievement and he starts to throw the blame elsewhere to get the *** off his own doorstep. I wish he'd shut his face, stop talking *** to the press, and just get on with managing the team without constantly making excuses.
  12. To be fair to Burke, he was quite often played as a striker under Wilder. Can't blame a lad for not playing his best when you're negating his positive attributes in a completely unsuitable position. He does have something a prove. A loan with an option to buy and he might be wanting to prove everyone wrong.
