  1. Not sure how bad ayalas injury is looked like a hamstring to me. How far away is chambers? To be honest its likely to be friend back in but due to his performance on the weekend i chose to try barragan
  2. I know, but unless he is hoping for a move to italy which is more than likely i cant see any premier league teams being interested. He has shot him self in the foot regarding that due to his supposed attitude and performances of late.
  3. Nice opening match day thread John. Good effort. Good HTML skills too ;) If City are 'UP' for it, then I can't really see us getting anything from this game. HOWEVER, I'm hoping that City might have their eye on a couple of other prizes (namely Premier League and Champions League). They played on Sunday, are playing tomorrow night (Wednesday), playing us on Saturday, and then have their CL game against Monaco the following Wednesday. Playing four times in ten days, you'd have to expect there to be some decent squad rotation going on, so we could get lucky. As such and if so.... t
  4. Ive watched videos of fischer at ajax and he seems to play through the middle for them too. Id like to try him there instead of ramirez tbh
  5. Here we have the opportunity to play without the pressure of our relegation worries. One game away from wembley. Kick off is at 12.15 11/3 At the Riverside stadium Live on BT sport 2 for those who cannot make it Boro have met City eight times in the competition with the Teessiders considered something of a bogey team in both league and cup.

  6. As far as I know it wasn't Karankas decision to not be at Charlton. You're splitting hairs guys. Whether he walked out, or whether he didn't.... there was a massive 'situation' that arose - that much is clear. It wasn't a stick to beat him with. My point was that plenty of clubs would have binned their manager in a similar situation. Boro didn't. I was reassuring Boro Dave that it's not Boro's way. Boro didnt bin him because they knew this guy could get the club promoted. They were right on this occassion. They probably have a similar feeling towards our survival too oth
  7. I dread to think what his finishing like mind
  8. You would have thought by now with his speed that he could have won us a few penna's by now but goes to show how often he actually gets into the box :shy: This is it! Always goes outside. Cut inside and draw the foul simple. Dont need to dive or over emphasise it because he will be fouled or hes through on goal.
  9. The problem with this team as i see it is we dont have a natural balance and play too many (poor quality)central midfielders if we are going to play with a holding midfielder we need another midfielder who can dictate the pace good on possesion amd can play killer balls. We dont have a player like this. I loke de roon but he just runs around alot, he could score more goals imo. Leadbitter is also the same as de roon. Our wingers are the major fault in this squad too stuani is not a winger. He is a decent forward but not a winger. Unfortunately due to the lack of wingers we have to play stuani
  10. Fake account with 375 followers. Fake news. My bad didnt look at that. Dont have twitter, looked genuine to someone who doesnt know Don't worry about it mate. I almost fell for it myself, twice. :D Always look for the blue tick first :P Been a long day! ? almost thought i had my first exclusive. Strangely i actually feel relieved he hadnt been sacked!

  12. He has gone according to boros official twitter account
  13. Sorry to hear that DS, i know what its like. I lost my father to bowl cancer. Back to football i dont remember warburton much didnt he get sacked even though he got brentford promoted? What kind of manager is he?
  14. I think that he probably took the Rhodes departure very personally which would not have inspired him towards AK Probably right but i just remember the charlton game. He had the opportunity to do something different then and that was before jordan was even here. If karanka goes then most of the backroom staff will probably go as these are karankas men. So its not as simple changing the manager its the whole backroom team that will need overhauling. I just dont see it happening, not before the season ends anyway.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.

  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. He could have the promotion and relegation record soon
  22. 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
