  1. Never in a million years did I see him going up against two physical centre backs, in a team who is not adverse to knocking it more direct and him holding his own. He got in front of his marker and used his strength and held it up. I always knew he had goals in him. That was not in question but I never thought he had it in him to put in that type of performance. Hold my hands up, eat that humble pie and admit I was very very wrong about his ability to play up front on his own in a Pulis team. Fantastic performance Paddy.
  2. All of those players apart from Rhodes, Nugent and Fredericks would challenge strongly for a starting place in our team.
  3. I disagree. The issues I have with him relate to the previous two seasons. I stand by everything I posted just now. Feel free to pick out points you disagree with and give me some reasons behind why you disagree. I am certainly open to the idea of changing my mind.
  4. :D :D :D I enjoyed reading that. Good points made from most. A bit of dummy spitting by a few who can't seem to grasp the notion that others have different opinions to them. I will happiuly clarify my main points. Steve Gibson has not bankrolled this club as much as people claim. A lot of the money he pumps into the club is written off by Bulkhaul. Accountants are very creative you know! Granted he will have still invested a substantial amount of money when we were floundering in the Championship due to the poor decisions HE made. However, the figure won't be anywhere near the amounts bein
  5. Haha apologies, I have been away working. Just arrived home an hour ago, quick shower, breakfast and then minibus to Sunderland at 10.30. Seems to have sparked a good debate so I will have a look over the next day or two. UTB
  6. I am open to discuss the error of my ppinions. Can you highlight what you do not agree with about my opinion of Gibson? Would love to be exposed as a bedwetting drama queen!
  7. Tis the truth, however hard it is for me to write these words, Steve Gibson needs to get his act together or clear off.
  8. I have touched in this numerous times and this is not by any means a knee-jerk reaction resulting from losing against a very good and well organised Cardiff City side. The facts are that our chairman charges the supporters one of the most expensive tickets in the league. He claims to be one of the fans, one of the people, a local boy done good who is in touch with the people of Teesside. Really Steve? You have banked millions from the fortunes of this football club. Granted, you have brought brief spells of exciting times but since you took control in 1994? the vast majority of seasons supp
  9. Its long overdue. I am going for 5-1 with Britt or Rudy bagging the opener depending on who starts. £2 on it at around 400-1. It will be interesting to see if we get to see Besic in the side today. His added pace, strength and mobility may allow us to push more players forward safe in the knowledge that he is there to stop counter attacks. In my opinion we have been crying out for a player like him for quite some time. The lack of mobility in the middle of the park has restricted us going forward with real intent.
  10. It would take too long to list them all. Don't even get me started on smaller sized clubs! I'm sure I read a post earlier containing a message suitable for this... oh yeah: Burnley, Leicester, Bournemouth, Watford, Palace, Brighton, Stoke, Huddersfield, Southampton, Swansea, West Brom, Wolves, Cardiff, Villa, Fulham, Norwich, QPR, Reading and Hull are all similar or smaller clubs that have shown more ambition than us in the past decade. Sure there will be more that I have missed out. Hope that helps you understand a little more. I started writing out a long, well re

  12. Excellent value for money. Good to hear. And can I ask how you feel about Steve Gibson’s stewardship of the club? Particularly in the last decade? Wildly ambitious. Could you illustrate similar sized clubs, with a similar sized budget that have demonstrated more ambition in the past decade, please? It would take too long to list them all. Don't even get me started on smaller sized clubs!

  14. The players that left will have been on much more than the players brought in so in fact he has saved a fortune on wages. I wouldn't say he has given it a go this season. If I was marking him on ambition this season, taking into account the £4 million net spend, it would have to be a 5/10.
