  1. I dont think agnew is the answer. If he is a yes man he would be unlikely to motivate this group of players. We need a strong personality some one who can turn us around. Get into ramirez's head and get him playing again. I dont want pearson or monk or rowett. Realisticly mancini is a no go and im not sure he would be able to turn us around. Ranieri would he be able to tinker his way out of trouble? It would be a slap in the face of leicester if he did manage it! I wouldnt know who would be able to help us to be honest.
  2. Fabio had a tough game that ramadam was class. Ramirez just did not seem interested maybe should of rated at 3 or 4 Do you genuinely think that Friend deserves a 5? On performance yes and was directly responisble for the two goals. He made a few good interceptions and blocks but awareness and passing was shocking. I thought you were being a bit generous :sleepy: I was.. probably because i like him as a person and on his past performances. But yes you are right he probably scores less than 5
  3. Wow!!! all minus ratings....things are really bad.. :D In all seriousness though... I think you have been quite generous with Fabio and Ramirez. Fabio had a tough game that ramadam was class.

  5. Just to change the subject a little but ive rated the team as i saw it. Valdes-7 Fabio-6 Espinosa-6 Gibson-6 Friend-5 Clayton-6 Leadbitter-6 De roon-6 Ramirez-5 Traore-5 Gestede-6 Gedioura-6 Stuani-6 Unfair to rate ayala.
  6. I agree on both points. Does anyone on here actually think the team are actually playing for the manager lol Yes I know, the same thought had crossed my mind tbh and I was going to ask whether it looks like the players have had enough of him. It's hard to tell though as it's not like we've been much different throughout the season. No attacking play to speak of in general all year long. I was wondering this. The passing seems awfull. Friend has been very poor. That moment when leadbitter and gibson collided was like noone wanted the ball.
  7. He could have the promotion and relegation record soon
  8. Cant take a defender off for another defender Surely.. you be seen as negative. Though i totally agree friend has been awfull and could be blamed for the goals
  9. I'd go that but with friend for barragan Me too but i was just guessing what team karanka would put out.
  10. Anyone going to have a guess at the starting lineup for today? My guess is. Valdes Barragan Espinosa Gibson Fabio Clayton De roon Leadbitter Ramirez Traore Gestede
  11. He could of been the solution had the link between midfield and him be better. As you say negredo is not the problem. I find it hard to judge him really because the service he has received has so poor. A better playmaker and he would thrive. Every game I've seen he had worked his socks off. One thing I think he could do beter though is his hold up play, he needs the ball to stick to him more. I know the balls to him haven't been that great either. But if he could hold up the ball for a few seconds it could be better for us.
  12. Valdes is the best signing so far. Proving the doubters wrong. Fabio is a close second what a bargain he is. Traore third due to his potential I'd love him to get a goal or two now though
  13. If you didn't listen to the stupid commentators and was a neutral you would say although it was a nill nill draw it was actually a great game of football. Both sides tried their best and although both sides had decent attempts on goal it's difficult to say who deserved to win the game. A good point well earned.
  14. Dirty play by Alli tbh but valdes was stupid to do that. Very lucky to not get sent off.
  15. To be fair we are hardly left bored rigid after a game like that are we? Frustrated yes but not bored. My finger nails have never been so short!
  16. Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I'm not sure I'd use the word excellently. We were resolute in the most part but we were regularly carved open and got lucky more than a few times. We were good defensively, don't get me wrong, but excellent makes it sound like we completely shut Tottenham out which isn't the case. Another day that's a 4-0 game easily. We did defend excellently it was one mistake that cost us. You cannot shut a team like spurs out completely. It's a case of having the answer to their attacks which we did. We can criticise the club's recruitment till the summer but that wont change anything. We have to play cards we have now. Hopefully come Everton the starting squad will look different. --------negredo--------- Gaston-------------adama ---adlene-----de roon--- --------clayton--------- Friend-gibson-chambers-barragan. That could be enough to get a point from Everton hopefully.
  17. I thought that too. Some of their info was shocking as usual.
  18. Or you know, the Negredo header... Ok so we had one chance early one (which wasn't particularly clear cut because it was a difficult header to make he was leaning back) but I'll allow it. 2 chances, about 85 minutes apart, neither of which hit the target. Excellent work in 90 minutes of football. I thought we had three chances? Negredo header negredo volley and de roons. ;P I wasn't counting the volley cause it wasn't really a chance for me. Really? It was closer to the goal than either of the other attempts. Alternatively if negredo left it bamford behind him was in a good position too
  19. its not the players i berate, its the manager for setting us up to defend and nothing else. If we didn't set up to defend and frustrate spurs we could lost 4 nill easily. Our midfield is just not strong enough
  20. No we weren't and no we can't. He's talking *** again. Our best and only real clear chance came in the 92nd bloody minute for christ sake Or you know, the Negredo header...

  21. 3rd. They finished last season 3rd :) But you don't go into a game thinking they finished 3rd last season so we will probably lose this one?? Look at Leicester city? That mentality will get you relegated? You go into every game giving 100% and aiming to win. If you go on last season then we should expect to finish 19th? We should be playing our best 11 with the best tactics for them and have a plan b with the players on the bench to execute it. We play the same system regardless of home or away and nothing changes. I love boro and to me 17th will do lovely but playing the way we do and with other teams improving I fear for us. Actually as a former player I know that thought is in your mind. It usually takes a few minutes for the game to settle before you get an idea of what your up against individually speaking. My first game for one club was against a team who had won the league 5 or 6 times in row so I can tell you it is daunting. We lost that game :(
  22. That was a hard game to watch. Typically it was one silly mistake that cost us. Again we come alive in the last 20 mins or so. De roon will be gutted to not of scored. If only it was stuani it had fallen too it could of been 1 each. Never mind pick ourselves up we battled all game and go again. I thought forshaw was poor today, downing was nowhere near the pace of the game either. Fabio stood out, chambers too but all four defenders had a tough ask today. Clayton was ok not great just ok. Traore had one or two good moments but wasn't his game either. Negredo is really looking frustrated with the lack of suport. When stuani and bamford was on negredo seemed better as he had players closer to him.
