  1. With the benefit of many years of coaching at junior level, I watch Spence and I just want to run onto the pitch, grab him by his shirt and give him a good shake. There is definitely talent there but the lack of concentration is a huge weakness, he just seems to switch off and the game (and opposition players)just passes him by. Can he be coached into a top rate player, no in my opinion, you either have a football brain or not, and that is what separates the exceptional from the good. Any decent offer, accept it and move on.
  2. Just for a minute imagine being in Josh Coburn's head at the moment. You are 18 years old, your gaffer has the belief in you to put you into the first team and you score with your speciality a header, talk about walking on cloud nine. Well done son may you and Malley go on to have successful careers in this great game
  3. Malley looks a real prospect, and he’s ginger, whoops can I say that,
  4. Came on here to check up on club gossip and I find race baiting, I am done !
  5. Nearly the end of the first half and zero attempts on goal, who would have thought that after seeing the team sheet announced !!
  6. Is there anybody on this forum who believes that Bettanelli deserves his place in this team, and if so, on what basis. A goalkeeper should instil confidence in his defence, organise that defence, know when to come for a cross, position himself to block shots and make the forwards work for their goal. This guy just does none of the above and frankly is a liability and a mistake waiting to happen, did you see that attempt to come out for a cross yesterday, schoolboy error stuff. Right sorry rant over, I just do not get what NW sees in him and I hope to God he is not thinking of making his move p
  7. Moving on I am trying to stop spitting blood over the appalling refereeing. Just imagine how much better this team would be if we had a forward of the likes of Viduka who could hold the ball up, that is what I am holding onto for next season, now we just have to find one.
  8. Watched it a dozen times now and Saville gets there a fraction before their player, who then kicks Saville and goes over. A hard decision to make but on the basis of the previous ninety minutes of clown refereeing this guy should be demoted to the West Midlands North league
  9. Joke refereeing, and he was only five yards away !!!!
  10. This makes a lot of sense RR and something that I think is being discussed by all concerned. Over the last few years we have switched managers, coaching staff, players, style and vision so many times I am frankly dizzy, and where has it got us, skint and mid table. Let us try and build on the foundations Warnock has set in place with this team and let him have a say in a part time role, surely it cannot be worse that chucking everyone out again and bringing in yet another regime.
  11. Positives - Hall brings some much needed steel into the cb position, Kebano looks really good but his lack of fitness showed in the second half, Watmore caused all sorts of problems with his direct running, Bola is improving all the time. Negatives - Bettenelli is a clown, Morsey is just so limited and a red card waiting to happen. The rest were ok and Fletcher needed that game and goal
  12. All over their defence after Watmores wonder goal and we should go onto win this comfortably in the second half. Good performances from Watmore and especially Kebano who looks a class above.
  13. On the positive side we have not just been booting the ball upfield like usual, could be something to do with us not being able to get hold of the ball like !
  14. Well at last the ponderous three in midfield have been split up, with McNair presumably moving forward to give some impetus. I can't see us missing Saville as he is one of the most ineffective tacklers I have seen in that position. I would rather have Fletcher up front than Assombalonga who I think is just protecting himself before new club negotiations begin. Oh well let's see how it goes and let's just hope they don't manage a shot on target at Flappanell.
  15. Is it just me, but I get a shiver down the spine every time I see the first name on the team list is Betterwelly, he must surely be one of the worst Boro keepers of living memory
