  1. Boro v Cardiff Saturday 18th July, 3pm, Riverside Stadium The Form: Boro come into this one off the back of a victory after coming from behind. I know, I can't believe it either. Fletcher and Roberts hitting a goal in each half to cancel out Liam Moore's opener for Reading. Fletcher's goal was his 13th of the campaign, and he looks to be improving every season. Is the once highly rated youngster finally beginning to show some of his potential? Warnock now has a 50% record in his 6 games for Boro, with the Riverside club rising as high as 17th before tonight's kickoffs. Cardiff's beat Derby County last night 2-1, with goals coming from Junior Hoilett and once Boro fan favourite Lee Tomlin, the only player to ever challenge Phil Stamp's record for most parmos eating in an off-season. Tomlin has now made both Wazza and Kompany look like clowns on a football pitch, for anyone keeping count. The win means Cardiff remain sixth and with their play-off hopes in their own hands, they will be raring to go against the mighty Boro on Saturday. The Line Up: Why change a winning team? 42 Pears 2 Dijksteel 6 Fry 3 Friend 21 Johnson 16 Howson 22 Saville 29 Spence 19 Roberts 7 Tavernier 11 Fletcher Warnock's Words of Wonder: *Will update this after the press conference. This time. If I remember. For now, please enjoy this gif of the man himself, (while coaching Cardiff, I have just realised. Ties the thread together nicely): The View From The Otherside: The Cardiff fans can be found discussing the match here..... Shockingly, none have gone for a Boro win in their poll!
  2. Reading v Middlesbrough Tuesday, July 14th. 18.00. Madejski Stadium The Form: Middlesbrough have had a topsy turvy record since Warnock took over, with 2 wins and 3 defeats in his first 5 games... but at least there are no boring draws! We have scored 5 and conceded 6 during this run. Our last game was a 3-1 defeat at home to Bristol City, with Britt Assombalonga scoring a consolation goal with 8 minutes to go. Boro currently sit in 18th, 2 points above the bottom three - before Wigan's point deduction is taken into account - but with the teams at the bottom all fighting for points, results will need to be picked up somewhere in the last 3 games to guarantee survival. Reading's last five games yield a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, scoring 7 and conceding 5 - Although 5 of their goals scored came in one game in that run, as they hammered Luton away from home. Currently sitting in mid table, they are 8 points from the playoffs and 11 from, so hopefully with not much to play for they are already on the beach. Reading's last game was a 1-0 win away at Charlton, George Puscas's penalty in the 3rd minute being the only goal of the game. The Line Up: Warnock seems to settled on a side the last few games, so I am going to go for the same side again: 30 Stojanovic 29 Spence 6 Fry 5 Shotton 3 Friend 21 Johnson 17 McNair 16 Howson 22 Saville 11 Fletcher 9 Assombalonga Warnock-Wonders: I'll update this when the pre-match press conference has been done...

  10. I remember sitting in a pub in the Algarve that had a load of different games in TV for that 8-1 game. Was with my dad and brother, next to a bunch of united fans (were playing Wigan who were just above us going into that final weekend). Drunkenly said to one of them that I'll get a round of shots in for every goal they put past Wigan, and one of their group chimed in that he'd do the same every time we scored. Safe to say I got the better deal
  11. No it's fine mate, I understand people are at varying levels of ability and you have to ask. I can burn an iso to a disc, unfortunately the only computer in the house with an optical drive is the broken one haha! I used the wrong language when I said I installed it onto the flash drive, I merely copied it over in the hope it worked. Seems a bit silly now but I was on the beer yesterday
  12. I looked on Windows website and it gave me an iso file to download, I just assumed it would work off a flash drive haha
  13. In no particular order: Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!
  14. Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB. I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now
  15. Definitely does, it's seen better days! However pointless if I can't get it to work.
