  1. I don't get the whole argument that Gibson wants to keep us in the Championship because it's more profitable or safe, virtually every Championship club is haemorrhaging money and the only foreseeable way of getting out of that is the Premier League. I don't see trying to live within our means as a lack of ambition personally.
  2. Boro live on tv going for one point away, three if lucky?
  3. This is my drawing that I gone and done of Neil Warnock lifting the Championship trophy at the riverside. I'm not very good at bodies but think the face has a good likeness: Going for 1-1 with Britt scoring against his old club for this one.
  4. I mean this seasons bar isn't set very high, I'm not saying he was man of the match or anything just that he'd be worthy of a place in the starting 11 for me if he puts in a shift like that every week and hopefully that well taken goal will give him the confidence to kick on after an awful start to the season. Fry was the man of the match for me he's been an absolute rock since coming back into the team, he's playing so much better as the central player in a 3, I looked it up after the game and he made 8 interceptions and won 12 of 14 aerial duels last night.
  5. If you take away Spence's goal this was still by far his best performance of the season, and the fans know the deal with Britt by now he doesn't really offer much until he puts the ball in the back of the net.
  6. I've always kind of enjoyed being that ugly team that no one wants to face (or watch) 🤠
  7. If I were a pessimist I'd say that 3 points are essential in this so I'd be predicting a 2-1 loss in typical Boro fashion... Although as a self proclaimed optimist I'll say a tough grindy 2-1 in our favour!
  8. They've been banging on for years about how they're a "real country" and now they go and name their national stadium "the principality", that's proof that they're basically Cornwall but with a worse language and inferior ice cream 🙄 Anyway I'm predicting a 1-1 draw in this one, I can't see us winning after the massive distance for these two away days. Also the ball is in 4C as each of the stickmen are fighting to grab the ball to take the penalty.
  9. I'm not so sure, haven't they got all the money from the stadium sale available to them at this moment in time. I thought the reason they got deducted points was because they tried to include the stadium sale in the wrong year to try to escape punishment but it was already too late and didn't count towards FFP measures. I think the stadium sale is now on their books and that's how and why they're able to spend now.
  10. The fact that we're still looking for Strikers would say that we're still looking at the 3-5-2 formation even if we get Bolasie?

    Eng v Bel

    We need to drop the 3 at the back system, we've looked completely devoid of ideas the last 4 games we've played it. We don't have the players for it, none of our centre backs suit the system, all of our Fullbacks struggle to play as wingbacks. Essentially we have 8 players on the pitch who don't really create anything so the burden falls on our front 3 to break a team down which is making us slow and predictable. Belgium knew this and let us have possession in our own half before springing some devastating counters. Let's face it the pen was soft and the deflection was a freak. Belgium had much better chances in the game and a draw would've flattered us. Still they're the number 1 ranked team in the world so the 3 at the back system was probably more warranted than against Iceland and Denmark. We should be playing a system that uses our strengths rather than trying to cover up our weaknesses.
  12. Is he a bit of a sick note? Doesn't look like he's played much football since Chelsea signed him for about £15m. Assume it would be a loan?
  13. https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/championship/vertragslosespieler/wettbewerb/GB2 For anyone interested there's a link for Championship Free Agents, a lot of decent players still without clubs.
