  1. Lovely day for last day of the season. Hopefully everyone on and off the pitch gives it their all. We know something odd will happen. Probably Bournemouth not getting promoted but you never know. Worst case scenario Mackems win the play offs and we play them twice next season. Which would be nice. Bizarrely Sunderland and Newcastle are 2 grounds my 13 year old has never been to.
  2. Mini season tickets and a return of Boro Pride would be good I think.
  3. Not so long ago people were saying the window where we signed Bola, Dijskteel and Browne was a disaster. 2 out of 3 of those are now key first 11 players. The sort of signings we make now take time. So I expect Payero, McGree and Boyd-Munce to have the same sort of return if things go well. The summer window will be interesting. 3 or 4 first teamers and 4 or 5 potential stars would be good. Plus 3 or 4 loans I reckon. Most money will be spent in the first and last groups.
  4. That's what I think has happened. Once this season is done - maybe after Wednesday or Saturday I would not be surprised if Wilder left. The one advantage we have now is a director of football. I would expect the next manager to already have been identified to cater for exactly this scenario.
  5. My son reckons their GK saved Connolly's shot. Tav was very poor today. I really hope Payero has a good game on Wednesday. McGree has set the bar today, he was fantastic.
  6. We seem to have no energy and or no confidence going forward. Like we are running through treacle.
  7. I've always used the football park and ride. It's a DVLA site I think.
  8. Divide the top by the bottom.
  9. If you replace Wilder with Tomlin it's the same article they wrote 2 hours before Tomlin was paraded at Bournemouth. Its dragging on too long. Wilder should have put it to bed. He will now just get asked again pre match for Swansea.
  10. Until we sort out the supply lines all our strikers will have awful stats. But Connolly seems to struggle with being in the wrong place a lot. Watmore always looks busy. Sprorar can link up well. I don't know what Balogan is good at. I do know that Coburn scores goals and should be playing. That's the real mystery. The time has gone to manage his minutes. He needs to be starting and given chances to do what he does.
  11. I would be starting Coburn today. He needs a start
  12. Blimey, but what about all the wins and general really good play? Anyone can focus the negatives but we're a pretty good team. Not convinced we will get anything but having Jones back and Bola getting fit gives us a chance. And Bournemouth really are no great shakes. Get a good start and it could be the start of a fab few days.
  13. Never known so little buzz about a match that means so much. 1 bad performance and everyone seems to have given up. Very strange. However we have just left Waterloo in glorious sunshine. So if nothing else a day out, a few beers, a sing song, a night away and a walk on the beach.
  14. Me and my son are going. Very last minute decision when some tickets went in sale this week. Going to be a long few days we are going to Longleat Centerparcs on Monday.
  15. Does anyone think Bola could be the LCB we need? He played there under Warnock and did pretty well. I would play him there now if Fry is injured.
  16. I don't like Dijskteel as wing back. I'm not sure he's made the right changes to cater for Jones being out.
  17. I would have put Bola LCB and Paddy in midfield for a clearly knackered Hoswon. And started Coburn and Watmore. But he's the boss.
  18. Interesting weekend this for me and the son. We're off to London to see KSI tonight, train to Leeds then Barnsley tomorrow. Back to York in some sort of shape tomorrow night. Really hope we get a win tomorrow. As mentioned our away form is the risk. Barnsley always give us a game regardless of position. I do think finding a way to get Tav out on the left might be key going forward. Some big calls tomorrow. I think Lumley needs taking out for his own good. His head went on Tuesday. Every team will be targeting him now.
  19. Me and my son, going forward I'm giving my phone to my wife after we win a game and I've had a drink or 5😄
  20. My biggest hope at the moment is we seem to have found our form again. It feels like the COVID outbreak had an impact on energy levels. Recent games seem to suggest we are now not only fitter but getting even better at how Wilder wants to play. Connolly on Saturday was a mini Watmore. The defence was outstanding and our midfield just seems to be able to run and run. Saturday is the litmus test. Away at a ground I've never seen us win at against a team who are struggling. And we have had a week off. We should win. If we do I think we have real hope for pushing for the top 2. If w
  21. I get the impression that McGreedy might have been a false positive for COVID. Complete guess but if that's the case bodes well.
  22. I would imagine there is time for a deal to be done.
  23. It is a strange one. Not in any squads. He must surely be on his way.
  24. I think it needs freshening up. We won't see that many changes but perhaps a couple of them.
  25. This is what me and son were saying last night. All bar the defenders could be replaced on Saturday. I exclude defenders as we don't have like for like. If based on form I would go Balogon for Sporar Watmore for Connolly Payero for Howson, Crooks to CDM Boyd-Munce for Tav I only expect perhaps the first 2. And I agree it seems Wilder really won't give Payero any sort of chance. Shame as I think he was starting to show what he can do. He doesn't help himself as his warming up is so lazy.
