    I had absolutely no issue with the team he picked, it's the formation that frustrated me.

    Playing Browne as a striker and Coulson as a right back, and then taking off Fletcher to play another winger as a striker.

    Yes I totally agree, looking at the team on paper it looked like a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 would suit us more, but instead he went for an unbalanced option and then made strange subs which didn't help.

    How? When’s the last time Coulson had a good game or done anything of note? Last season was hardly a while ago 

    even though Spence struggled a bit defensively against Watford (yes I know as a rwb defending should be his priority) he was still causing problems with his runs, that ball he put across the box was begging to be put away.

    I feel a bit for Coulson, and he was in unfamiliar position yesterday but he’s shown nothing for ages either going forward or defensively. Hopefully soon he gets a chance on at LWB where it’s a bit more natural to him.

    He’s barely played since Warnock came in though has he. That’s my point, how can you talk about him being in bad form when he’s hardly played in the last 6 months and his one recent appearance was out of position. It’s harsh as I said.

    Coulson doesn't deserve to be anywhere near the side in his current form, I'd rather go with a 4231 with Fletcher, Tav and Spence in the 3 behind Britt. Then with Morsy and Saville as the 2

    Bit harsh isn’t it? By form you presumably mean his one appearance this season, played out of position?

    I like Spence but there’s a much stronger argument that his form means he doesn’t deserve to be in the team rather than using that argument against Coulson who hasn’t been given a proper chance yet by the current manager.

    I don't think he's lost the game on purpose, I just don't think he's put much thought into winning it at all. If he really wanted to see these players 'grab the bull by the horns' as he suggested, he'd have picked a formation that allowed them to do that. As it is, he stuck with wing backs and 2 strikers, hanging Coulson and Browne out to dry. Pathetic management.

    Agree 100%.

    I reckon he's stitched a few players up here, playing Browne up front after claiming you've never seen him play and continuing the Coulson right wing experiment from Plymouth.

    I have a bad feeling you are onto something there. He’s clearly not keen on Coulson but knows from reading forums that most fans want to see him play Above Johnson so he’s thrown him under a bus tonight. If that’s his thinking he must think we are all pretty stupid. Similar with Brown, he didn’t fancy giving him a chance at the weekend when he should have and now starts him out of position.

    Well the alarm bells are going in my head reading that Warnock interview. Says we don’t need anymore creativity and can rely on Tav and Wing... what is this club’s problem? 

    For years our struggle hasn’t been a lack of quality striker up front, it’s the severe lack of service they receive and not one person in the hierarchy seems to be aware. Morons

    Yes I’m surprised he’s saying that. He even admits he hasn’t seen enough from Wing so really he’s saying he’s happy with Tav. How can one player with some creativity be enough? Creativity should be the priority not 2 extra strikers.

    May have been a bit hasty in my response. After a quick dive on Twitter seems he has deleted all his social media accounts. 

    Have no doubts Warnocks ears have pricked up but probably best to find out what on earth he has done by ways of "breach of contract" that has resulted in instant termination of his contract.

    A few Cardiff fans seem to think it may be drug related...

    That’s what I assumed, to be sacked immediately. Maybe he’s about to get a long ban from playing.

    It will be available for League games as normal, seems to be an issue with the EFL and the Carabao cup and International rights. That’s the reason why you couldn’t watch it outside of the UK

    Ok well that’s good news then. Thanks for that as it’s been doing my head in! 

  9. It seems so yes, it’s been discussed a bit on the other Boro stuff thread. Nobody can really understand why overseas fans are suddenly not allowed to even watch, it seems like there’s been a mistake made somewhere, hopefully it’s resolved by next week. At the very least we should be allowed to buy what the uk fans can buy.

    Or, we are treating our international fans the same way as we are treating our domestic fans.  I thought everyone was for equality these days?

    I’d settle for equality, I didn’t have the option to buy the stream last night, only commentary.

    I mean, the big thing for me here is if Watford can charge less for overseas people then what's this we've been told that the EFL set the prices for everyone? And that absolutely brings questions to what we're doing.

    Exactly my thought!

    Nailed it. 

    Gazette has the predicted starting line up exactly the same

    Predicted Boro starting line-up: Stojanovic; Dijksteel, Wood, Hall; Spence, Johnson; Howson, Wing, Tavernier; Assombalonga, Fletcher

    So not exactly the same then. 

    oops didn’t realise I was so far behind, already mentioned.

    So let me get this right. I live in Cyprus and unlike last season I can't get a subscription to watch all league games home and away. Apart from those on sky and those chosen for foreign coverage. I can't get BBC Tees to even listen to the games. If that is the case then how fair is that.

    Yeah mate it’s looking really stupidly thought out this. I’ve just looked at trying to get the stream on Friday and it’s not even an option for overseas people, all we can get is a radio commentary. Its Bonkers if they aren't going to let me pay them for something they could easily let me buy, throwing money away. Who makes these decisions? Whose interest is it in to deny overseas people the option to pay to watch?

    There's no way hall or fry should be anywhere near playing Friday, with out luck they'll both get injured. 

    I’d prefer they had a competitive game together before the league starts. They can get injured in any match, you can say don’t pick them in the first league game in case they get injured for the second game.

    If we get Gibson and we are going with 3-5-2 this season, the first 11 isn’t far off. There are certainly areas that could do with strengthening and improving but I wouldn’t be too displeased if this was the side we put out against Watford:








    Its not a bad team and pretty balanced given what we have available but with very few alternatives to change it around. I'd probably pick that team if we failed to sign anyone before the first game.

    We have bigger problems than Wingers and it should be one of the last positions we should be looking at. A winger wont make much of a difference if the rest of the team is crap and at the moment the rest of the team is crap.

    Thats the priority order imo

    Is that a wind up or what? The first 5 signings we need to make are defenders?
