  1. It’s gone well the last months, but we’re not out of the woods yet. Still a lot to do and Woodgate has almost been forced into the way we’re playing. At the end of January if things are still looking bright and we’ve moved up the table - then we can start to be enthusiastic!
  2. Welcome to the Official oneBoro Match Day Thread for the EFL Championship fixture between Middlesbrough and Hull City. Boro currently find themselves in the bottom 3 of the Championship without a win in 7 league matches... that win against Reading seems an awfully long time ago... well that's because it was! Hull find themselves middle of the pile in 12th having won 3 of their last 5, the wins coming away to Fulham and Forest whilst beating Derby at home. These sides have met 52 times previously in the league - Boro winning 25, 14 in Hulls favour and 13 draws - Boro will need to add to their winning total, otherwise even the most optimistic of fans and managers will have to admit Boro are in a relegation scrap! Last Time Out QPR 2 - 2 Boro Britt Assombalonga scored twice for struggling Middlesbrough as they drew 2-2 at QPR in the Sky Bet Championship. Boro were staring at another defeat before Nahki Wells' appalling back-pass went straight to Assombalonga, who capitalised by calmly lifting the ball over keeper Joe Lumley. Wells' ninth goal of the season had brought Rangers level just after they had fallen behind to Assombalonga's first, and an own goal by Jonny Howson a minute before half-time meant the hosts led at the interval. After 'keeper Darren Randolph pushed out Grant Hall's header, the ball bounced off the unfortunate Howson and into the net. That seemed to sum up what has been a miserable season for Jonathan Woodgate's Boro side so far - but they left with a point courtesy of Assombalonga's 69th-minute equaliser. (Source - Sky Sports) Hull 0 - 1 WBA West Brom consolidated their position at the summit of the Championship table with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Hull at the KCOM Stadium. The Baggies did not have it all their own way in East Yorkshire and Grant McCann's side were confident having won their last three outings, but it was an old face that came back to haunt the Tigers. Jake Livermore, who spent three-and-a-half seasons as a Hull player before joining West Brom in 2017, scored the only goal in the 28th minute, firing home from distance. The home side had their chances, with Kamil Grosicki spurning their most notable opportunity, but West Brom showed the grit of promotion contenders to ensure Livermore's strike was decisive. (Source - Sky Sports) Lazy Scouting Jarrod Bowen The 23-year-old is already into double figures for the season with 9 league and 1 cup goal in the bag. Hull slapped a £20m price tag on the striker with Spurs sniffing around the youngster in previous transfer windows. He has continued his fine form from last season when he slotted 22 goals in 46 appearances in an otherwise unremarkable season for Hull. Signed by Hull whilst in the Premier League from then Conference side Hereford United, the punt on a young potential seems to be paying off. Talking Points - Will Woodgate stick with the same side from QPR? - What is the key to Boro taking 3 points from the game? - Will Britt Assombalonga now find some confidence in front of goal? - Is Lewis Wing performing to his potential?
  3. Possibly, but I think people will need to give us good value. Same goes for any player. I think Randoloh, McNair and possibly Wing are the only players who's get any interest
  4. Playing with Pears on the bench.. looks like you're a bit wrong
  5. The positives: We won, Britt scored... The negatives: We looked disjointed, players lacking confidence and form, system still not right, were lucky not to concede. Still 3 points though... Maybe the first brick of this season's foundations. Another home game to come, a positive start against Millwall and it could start to look a little better... COULD
  6. You've got a point CT, it's been a tough thing to commentate on..
  7. Could be Dorset or Kent.. if at all either of the Gillinghams
  8. Sadly only a few games were recorded. I'll have a look to see what I can dig up once I'm fully established back down here. My Mac is currently in a box under a bed ?
  9. I'm sure he is, I've followed a few commentators careers and being biased on local radio hasn't stopped the best rising to the top. I'm led to believe Ali turned down moves up the ladder as he only wanted to commentate on the Boro. He was also the reason why so many of our games were picked for 5live/sports extra in his days when nothing else was on. Because the standard was high.
  10. I do agree, far from the worst commentary team we've had to listen to following the Boro. Addo is a decent presenter and the trio thing works. Bernie had his time, it worked well as the Yang to Ali's Ying. Higgy was good too - far more tactical awareness in his comments.
  11. My problem with Mark Drury is it feels like he's commentating for a bigger aim - like it's a constant 5live audition. It's not what people generally want from a local radio commentator. Nothing wrong with a bit of bias - his only audience is Teesside and those willing to pay MFC - get less excited when the oppo score
  12. BBC Tees have a perfectly good commentator.. just a shame it's Rob Law and not Mark 'I love a cliche and club nickname and talk about anything but the game' Drury I don't think I'd go down too well either, with my southern accent and all.. long commute too as back in the land of over priced houses ?
  13. Essentially, yes. I'd like to think with none of the nonsense that you often get with radio commentaries. I describe exactly what's happening, very little time for fluffy stuff. It's more like the original radio commentaries before personality started to get in the way of things ?
  14. Spent the last two seasons working for the club as their audio descriptive commentator for blind and partially sighted supporters... Best job ever, despite having to put up with Pulisball ?
  15. Some great logic here - can't argue with any of it
