  1. It's easy when the club chairman thinks you are his close friend and after every defeat you say what you would have done differently. It's really not that hard to imagine. Abyway lovely well articulated post by the way Tom, thought you had more about you than that. I see the curse of the mod has infected you as well.
  2. He is an absolute snake I wouldn't touch him with a barge poll. Doing a good job though. Haha why is he a snake? There's so much but look how he got the Swansea job, downed tools, was whispering in the chairmans ear and lead/organised a player revolt. Then positioned himself as gaffa. He's two faced with his players, staff and talks more *** to the media than AK.

  4. Is it? We are *** at set pieces and don't counter attack we counter possess. When was the last time we went box to box with two or three touches on the counter. I've seen us do it reverse. Every corner seems to be how quick can we get it to Valdes.
  5. What's really cost us was all that bull *** about teams not being in our league and mini leagues. It gave players and managers excuses for *** poor performances as long as it wasn't against a bottom 3 team.
  6. Would changing a manager at this point really do anything? Looking at it what can a new manager do? Clement at Swansea brought players in who had been shunned by Bradley and started to play players in their proper positions. You can say the same for Leicester. Who do we have that could come in and do anything Fischer, Downing, Husband, Bamford? Hull and Palace used the transfer window. Aside from that could we risk Agnew being in charge for some vital games? I don't believe ASK can keep us up, I think he's been castrated since the walk out but I also believe that our issues run deeper. Our recruitment has been woeful. I think the summer is the time for change come what may.
  7. I'd love to know how he coaches. Pep when he was at Barcelona gave people jobs and positions both defensively and offensively. His arguement was that a player should be able to pass a ball into space without looking if you are there. He should trust you to do your job. If you consistently didn't do it you got dropped. I recall Henry telling a story of how he drifted from left to right, picked up the ball and scored only to be given a bollocking at half time by Pep. For all the organisation we have defensively I don't see the same going forward. There's two things that strike me with boro. Firstly we look like strangers playing together, there is no appreciation of other people's game. Secondly if we are so poor in open play then our lack of work on set pieces is criminal. We've decent threats in the area and over a season set pieces could have got us 3,4 or 5 points. I honestly think our tactic is to get the ball to Valdes as quick as possible. So whilst he's right he can't play for them he can have an impact (also perhaps dropping Leadbitter and Downing after scoring sends out the wrong message).
  8. Something wrong CT, that was only one sentence? I'm beginning to sense a trend here.
  9. On the upside if you believe in the multi verse then somewhere out there we are top of the league.
  10. I'm here for two weeks and have read through today's match day thread but just wondering what's the general mood on the team, players, managers, staff.
  11. Even Karankas not delusional enough to blame a time lord.
  12. Sorry Linjo you replied whilst I was typing other post was about Mikel. With regard to different directions If you look at the people we've signed who play the same position as each other it's hard to identify similar traits: Adama and Stuani. De Pena, Wildshutt, Fischer. Downing, Tomlin and Gaston. Even Negredo, Rhodes and Nugent. Probably the closest is our choice of left backs and Negredo and Kike. I think with those you can clearly see we have a type/model of player in mind. For me sometimes you don't need plan b but a change in personal doing plan a. I don't think have that up top. We seem really good at identify people who are similar across the back but up top it seems scattergun between down the line wingers, inside forwards, wide midfielders and even just advanced full backs.
  13. @Linjo I don't know. I'd be surprised as I think he'll move onto bigger and better things. I'll put feelers out in the next few days and see if I get anything. There's a bunch of Spanish scouts staying in the same hotel.
  14. He looks a real player, think he something like a £40m buy out. I think we are quite active still in Spain and may just be working on the database. We've seen that we have scouted people for 2/3 years before signing them. It will also mean there's others we have paid interest in and not signed. I'll be interested to see what our squad is like after deadline day. When I look at our signings and who we are linked with it doesn't feel that all the recruitment team have the same ideas.
  15. Hi guys, Just read the last few pages so sorry if these are bullet points or repeats. It wasn't the Gazette that broke the news about Shay signing for us. It won't have had any impact on their relationship with the club. That said they ran that we signed Lindelof three times last Jan. I'm told Jese is a loan deal £2 5m and 70-75k a week. Deal has been agreed with the club but player needs to decided. The reverse is true of Bojan - personal terms are agreed but clubs apart on valuation. Think we will end up at about the £10.8 mark. I also believe Delafoofoo has agreed terms with AC but the clubs are thashing out a deal. Looks like AK's friends don't want to work with him : ) We are scouting Mikel Oyarzabel don't know if it's a here and now thing or one for down the road. I think I worked it out that we have 2 spaces currently available in the 25. Think we might have a busy end to the window.
