    Yeah, I'm not really understanding the intense criticism that Lenihan is coming in for right now.

    Not saying he's played great in the first two games, but he wasn't close to our worst player yesterday.

    He wasn't leading the team which is what he was supposed to do. He didn't take ownership.

    I thought it was appalling that Wilder made a stupid comment about Dijksteel never getting booked - which is because he's fast and doesn't get caught out - after Lenihan got sent off for a stupid reckless challenge.

    That's besides the point. The original post accused Wilder of failing to bring in players and selling Tav a few days before the season starts neither of which really falls under his remit. Obviously he will have a say to some extent over incomings and outgoings but he's not the one driving negotiations.

    I was answering your question about why today wasn't on Wilder. It was. He messed up. Particularly after the players got us back in it.

    Can you tell me how it’s Wilders fault 

    He picked the wrong team and made wrong decisions during the match. Plain and simple this was on him. Taking Forss off was utterly bizarre - unless injured - but not bringing Finch on and putting Crooks up front showed he doesn't know how players. 

    He messed up and his tactical genius assistant messed up. We could have got a point. Wilder to blame for us bring 3 points worse off against teams than last season

    Well leaving soon to get to "where's it at"

    Car journey to Greenford then tube into White City and wait up to meet with Ethers and then to mingle with 2.6k other Boro fans.

    Hate the ground but looking forward to the passion.

    Catch you all later on

    I love the ground. Always a good Boro atmosphere. Just about to tuck into our Nandos!

    If we lose out on the bloke I hadnt heard of a week ago to BURNLEY of all people, we riot.

    I thought I would hate them less once Dyche was gone but they are still annoying.

    Gibbo, pay Groningen whatever they want. I hope it makes some Burnley fans cry


    **edit** Just realised this may come across a bit more serious than I meant it, so here is a smiley face 🤣

    This is definitely his club and/or agent trying to force our hand. Standard practice.

  6. It does look like it's going to drag on in terms of signings. The fact noone other than Digger seems to have any sort of into on anything being close makes me think it's going to be another week of waiting and hoping. Not the end of the world. Our first 11 is ok. Hopefully Forss can play at QPR and take some of the chances we will create.

    I definitely think McNair will be back in to make the defence stronger and less open to breaks. 

    The press conference tomorrow should be very interesting. Wilder must be disappointed to not have any extra bodies to work with. Hopefully he is still as positive as post WBA.

    It's tough to work out what's going on. I wouldn't be surprised if he's already here. I know that's probably wishful thinking but some of the stories aren't adding up. The article stating that the Sporting Director hasn't responded to the inquires of the TV station and the Local Journalist staying he's working on an 'individual program' away from the rest of the team. It's quite a coincidence that offers have been submitted and he's on an individual program.

    The fact Diggerlad has said he's here and the media's been banned and at the same time the club puppets at both The Gazette and Northern Echo have been silent too.

    It is starting to look like we might have played a blinder and kept a huge deal for us quiet. If he has had a weeks training and QPR don't know about it can only be good. I hope we get 1 or 2 in for Saturday.
