  1. Best compliment you could give him that. Thanks Sanddancer πŸ‘πŸ» Wish there were more woke warriors in the world.
  2. To be fair, most of his career has been managing in the Football League, including below Championship level, so there's fewer non-British & Irish players play at that level naturally. Even when He took Sheff Utd up they weren't exactly globally fancied for promotion, and it's those fancied clubs who usually attract talent from Europe and beyond. I'd say there's far more naturally talented players than the likes of Chris Basham and George Baldock, but the performances they gave for him were superb. He knows how to get the best out of certain players - the question is, do we have those
  3. Are people.really having a go about us appointing an experienced, promotion winning, club record beating manager being put in charge above a former player who does have pedigree, but zero experience? In the position we're in now? In the league we all no? Think a few heads need shaking... We hated the football under Warnock. Wilder plays good stuff. Wilder has a proven track record of getting the most out of players who others would say weren't up to the job. Us having a DoF doesn't mean that he'll have zero influence on transfers. Look at the likes of Crooks and Bamba - NW still had a lot
  4. 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.
  5. Probably should've used my 'taking the ***' emoji... πŸ™ƒ
  6. You win the feeling of shame at a life wasted. That is what you win.
  7. 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
  8. Mate I'm not bothered how attractive you find them. What are they like as footballers? πŸ™ƒ
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. West Brom were keen, but Pep has said he wants him to stay at the Etihad this season.
  17. Yeah but Nile Ranger... πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
  18. Right - think I've caught up with the thread? Main points: - Everything is *** - God is dead - Warnock is a bit of a ***. Covered?
  19. Perhaps, but could be as Newy says - Ciaron Brown the Cardiff lad. I'm not sure if it's either, just hopeful that the left side player also plays as a LCB rather than just a pure LB. Bola could do it in a back 3, but wouldn't like to see him in a two man CB partnership.
  20. The more I think about it, the more I hope this left sided player is Kean Bryan. Left footed CB who can also play at LB. Play him alongside Fry (and McNair if playing a back 3) and we don't have to put our best CB on his weakest side. In terms of team balance, a signing like Bryan makes a much bigger difference than a Bidwell or Hume.
