  1. injured from last season our for ages missed preseason, played a few games looks rusty and then written off. couldnt make it up.
  2. yep seen the interview afterwards, fry, wing, clayton all marking space. others were but these were the real obvious ones. bola needs to get tighter on his man to. it will come good i think if the problems are so obvious to us then surely its easy to fix on the training pitch.
  3. just watching the highlights back and noticed a bit of a oddity building up to their first goal. we clear the ball and as they are having position again out wide our defense is in a nice line. but then what happens their lads all push forward again and i can see shotton looking and 3/4 bristol lads unmarked lining up just off the defense. the ball comes in we are swamped and nobody is marking at all in the middle of the goal with 2/3 lads totally free for the header central position just outside the 6 yard area. the midfielders wing is ball watching, mcnair is on the guy trying to cross clayton drifts closer to the ball near post ish. fletcher is running in but to late to mark them. britt is out the way upfront and johnson is in a forward position ten yards ahead of the crosser guess marking a guy incase its recycled back. my conclusion is we are very sloppy and slow to get organised, if ayala plays central i dont think we concede that goal. shotton sees all this happening as the left cb and you cant really see him booting off about marking. bola is heading back to the lb spot and fry and dijksteel nearside. not one of us takes command in the middle there its a right mess. very poor. seeing as shotton sees all this happening and its his responsibility as the senior pro to sort that out. trying not to single him out but f me, if it was me i'd know it was my fault there. fry turns round as the ball passes him and looks shocked as he heads it in. and throws his arms up in disgust. he clearly didnt know they were all there so who'd communicating to everyone. shotton and bola see it all and do nothing just hold a line leaving them free . we need a better cb and a bigger lad in cdm spot who can also help in that area, all our midfielders and midgets, we are vulnerable from crosses thats for sure. their second, when seeing it initially i thought fry's fault all day long, but when watching it again, he is marking space near post. if he follows the lad he'd leave a huge gap if the fullback is skinned so maybe he was actually doing the right thing defensively. its behind him that i see another problem shotton is to far behind him leaving a big gap for baker to get in and score from the cross. look like we need to get a grip in the defense because we have players running free all over. not enough ownership just lots of pointing fingers when it goes in again. mind you it was a great cross. i think the first goal was really bad, the second just bad lol given time we will get better due to the new players and system but atm its still a work in progress organisation wise. which is what is costing us. long term we need better players to push on.
  4. so what your saying is you expect the ref to get every decision right every game. its totally unrealistic
  5. so is that you righting off browne bola and dijksteel as league 1 fodder? regarding the scouting network. i'm of the opinion that everyone in the game knows who the good players are. its the young unproven lads that the scouting network earn their money highlighting, but even then you cant always get them to sign for us. then you need to get the manager to buy into their potential to. if the manager and the scouts dont really like the same type of players then you end up in the situation where pulis and monk sign what suits them.
  6. it was the same last summer, mostly tipped to be battling relegation. we finished 7th. so finishing mid table by the bedwetters probably puts us top 4 ?
  7. the days of having senior squad players not in the match squad are over. never should have happened in the first place. unless we are in the premier league having such an excess of players is BAD. you think shotton has been told hes behind ayala and fry in pecking order and will be a reserve cb? makes sense why he'd go to wigan. for first team football. i'm pleased with the window. other clubs have gone daft. fulham are signing striker and attacking midfielders but cant defend lol. they'll struggle to keep a clean sheet all season. west brom signed that west ham lad diangana(sp) on loan. we got browne on a perm for peanuts, who some of their fans rated higher. canny bit of business that like. our front 3 isnt without flaws but on its day we'll bang a few in. bola and dijksteel on the flanks. we are going to look like a proper team again. i think are are going up me like. nothing to fear all the other teams have their weaknesses to. but we are only highlighting our own. typical boro fans, including me after a good britt bash the other day. but he deserved it after the luton game the balloon head utb.
  8. woody said if he doesnt get the targets he wants he wont drop to 3-4-5th choice didnt he? if we could have shifted shotton, saville, gestede etc we would have signed more i would imagine. not the recruitment teams fault that is it. but it may be their fault we signed them lol
  9. yep looks very direct, hitting the byline a lot and hitting across the goal, a poachers dream. thats what i thought. looks very raw though. probably a bit of a tactical dunce like traore though.
  10. if we are in the position of having to sell to buy, saville is probably first out the door(after gestede). its a no brainer really. britt as much as he is flawed and very frustrating, still offers a lot. fry has massive potential keep him as long as possible to get a higher fee. if we are after a different striker to fit the new system, we sell one first right? if nobody wants gestede(lol) i think i'd rather keep fletcher over britt simply because we are also short of wingers. its a big risk selling ur top striker though. better be sure of the replacement.
  11. unless his valuation is met and the player we have lined up is sorted.
  12. randy, so because i dont like a player that shows no sign of football knowledge. lol that makes sense. you know your stuff. wow how come you are not employed at the highest level?
  13. look, if britt puts that penna in its game over, he missed a couple more chances to. i dont like him because i think he is utter ***, no one is going to change my mind. i'm actually buzzing hes leaving (hopefully) after initially being worried about our best striker going. we will have a better striker lined up. i have faith in woody. he knows the score.
  14. i dont often slate our players. i apologize. but i'm getting my frustrations out because hes leaving. ?
  15. no he was in on goal from slightly the right side facing the goal.
  16. pretty sure it was browne with the outrageous jumping back heel to set britt totally clear a few yards out. the keeper rushed him, but it was a total fluff from britt. uses his left foot it in the net if he hits the target, by using his right he brought the rushing keeper into play.
  17. no i expect a striker to hit the target with a free shot from the penalty spot, i also expect a so called poacher to actually score from a one on one 6 yards out.
  18. back to the britt bashing now he's leaving. he was lucky to score at all but should have scored 3. hes a spud. crystal palace fans will be absolutely gutted when they see how bad he is first hand.
  19. but a whole lot to do with pulis. britt for the majority was the only player in positions to score on a regular basis anyway. saying he did well to score so many goals in a pulis team is also a pointless argument. in an attacking side the goals would be shared about more. not necessarily equaling more for britt. he should have had a hat-trick on Friday night. but he missed a penna and a absolute sitter. he cost us 2 points. i'll be glad to see the back of him personally.
  20. WOODY wants a team that executes a high press. is britt really going to be that guy? or even fletcher for that matter. there is loads of strikers that will bang goals in at this level given the service. no need to panic over britt leaving at all imo. though i would like to know who we are getting to replace him before not getting a bit of a flap on myself ?
  21. its okay guys just heard on good authority from someone on FB that i dont know, you never could add britts name online you have to go into the club shop to do it.
  22. whats even stranger is on the club website they have stopped you selecting britts name as a shirt personalisation. hes leaving for big money isnt he. https://www.mfcofficialdirect.co.uk/kits/home-kit/adult/4697_19-adult-ss-home-shirt.html
  23. THATS A BIT LATE we had it on here first about half 7, its done the rounds on fb etc then you turn up back on here with it lol
  24. missing an open goal from 5 yards out early on lol. i liked him though, we a bit of a upgrade on mcdonald and the other garbage we had. i thought he was going to be a star for us.
