  1. I watched Akbom about three or four years ago playing for Arsenal reserves against Villa and was really impressed. He is a big strong lad and had lightning pace running into channels but does not look like a natural born finisher, he will certainly offer us something different from what we have. The price looks about right and we certainly shouldn’t lose money on the deal, but, unless we can solve the perennial problem of width pace, creativity and crossing then he will struggle like all the rest
  2. We are better organised than last season which you would expect under Warnock but the same problems are there for all to see, a lack of pace width and creativity in the centre leading to little or no chance for our forwards. On that showing and with no changes in personnel then mid table mediocrity beckons
  3. A competitive half of football spoiled for us by poor defending from the corner. We look very one paced and really lack creativity in the midfield, could badly do with another centre half and a loud mouth antagonist as captain, it is all just to easy for Watford. Finally can somebody tell Spence what he is supposed to be doing he looks lost
  4. Thanks for the welcome back Blanco I must cover up the Maori prison tats. I have a great deal of respect for Warnock, unlike your dad Pulis, so we will have to find something else to disagree about. Strange times these and I can see a lot of clubs being in financial difficulties this season ourselves included, perhaps success of clubs will now be measured by survival
  5. Well nine months away from this site( NZ and not jail by the way), and what has changed. Our recruitment appears to lurch from bad to worse and the width and creativity sorely needed still hasn’t been addressed. We are skint unless you are a relation of SG and having flicked through this site I have to be honest I have not heard of a single person we have supposedly been linked with. Oh well at least Warnock is an upgrade on that con artist Pulis who is no doubt enjoying spending the money he robbed off us, good decision SG, you were warned. I also hear that Changing Times is a new friendlier compassionate person, we will see as the season progresses
  6. Well played Boro, outstanding performances from McNair, Fry and Howson, we really are starting to look like a proper team
  7. What a change in our defensive performances since earlier in the season, have we got a new defensive coach or have the players just started to listen. We used to be all over the place, with full backs picking their noses and the cb,s left isolated. Now we operate more as a unit, keep a straight line and look forward not back, all basic stuff but what an improvement it makes to our shape
  8. What is happening ? We have been crying out season after season for width, pace and youth, now it is happening in bucket loads, exciting times again I think
  9. Our players looked drained when they came off the pitch at West Brom so I am not surprised he has had to freshen up the teams energy levels. However I am surprised at the change in formation and especially not bringing McNair back as he will be rested and champing at the bit. Woodgate has earned a bit of credibility from me after the last game so let us hope he has got it right.
  10. Best game I have seen for a long time by Boro, there are signs that these young lads are starting to knit together as a team. Big credit to Woodgate this time round, and to the players just thanks for giving me optimism for the New Year. Trying not to laugh at the West Brom supporters around me they are in a state of shock
  11. Oh my God what was that from Fletcher, goal of the season Yes Yes Yes
  12. My first live viewing of Boro this season and I am shocked, so much energy, belief, attacking intention, what the hell has happened. In all honesty I am only at the Hawthornes because somebody leant me their season ticket and I wasn't expecting us to compete like this. Coulson Spence, Tavernier have made WBA look like the side fighting relegation. Can we keep this up, what a boost that would be
  13. What awful defending, schoolboy stuff, for those with season tickets and have to watch this I feel your pain. I have tried to stay pretty neutral about Woodgate but enough is enough he us out of his depth
  14. Well that was just grim, I have no idea what we are trying to do, we have no midfield to pass to, no game plan, and frankly just look out of our depth. Stoke will probably go on to win this as they can at least pass to their own players.
  15. Wash your mouth out Stockton born and bred with the accent to prove it like
