  1. 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
  2. You've got a point CT, it's been a tough thing to commentate on..
  3. Could be Dorset or Kent.. if at all either of the Gillinghams
  4. 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 😂
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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 😂
  9. 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 😉
  10. 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 😂
  11. Some great logic here - can't argue with any of it
  12. I'm with Jimmy, let McNair sit. I think he's got more in the tank than Howson energy wise and also has more defensive qualities having played right back and center back through large parts of his time at Man Utd.
  13. The next penalty is tricky.. it could be a while waiting for it too. Ideally it comes when we've got a decent (2+ goals) advantage in a game and the scoring of it isn't vital. If that's the case, Britt takes it for me. If it's 90+ mins and the game is level, my thought process might be different... Tricky game this, we need to improve as a pressing unit, were still half doing it leaving space at times. Randolph Dijksteel - Ayala - Friend - Coulson Howson - McNair - Wing Johnson - Britt - Fletcher Is how I'd go. Clayton looks a bit lost in the press and is found too deep now allowing the back 4 to squeeze too, McNair clearly gets the press better and has been all energy so far this season. I think Howson is our best all round midfielder and Wing does what Wing does. No need to tinker with our front 3 yet
  14. Saturday 17th August 2019 - 3pm KO - Ewood Park Preview: Both sides come into this fixture following home league cup fixtures against lower league opposition - Blackburn oversaw a battling Oldham side 3:2, whilst Boro only turned up for the last 15 minutes against Crewe and were knocked out on penalties. Blackburn have a host of familiar faces in their employment with Tony Mowbray has several ex-Boro players in his ranks including; Harry Chapman, Danny Graham, Richie Smallwood, Stewart Downing and Jayson Leutwiler. There is a decent 5 a-side team in there! Both sides have only won 2 of their last 6 competitive fixtures stretching back into last season and Jonathan Woodgate will want to come off on top in the battle of the two ex Boro centre backs. Last Time Out (League): Boro Lets look past the penalty defeat to Crewe for a moment after 10 changes to the starting line up and back to the defeat at home to Brentford. Boro had a great first half and could possibly been 2-0 up at half time after come controversial refereeing decisions - but those goals were chalked off and Woodgates side were unable to keep up the pace and pressing of the first half and succumbed to a much improved Bee's side who stole a 1-0 victory from under the noses of the Boro faithful. Match Highlights (Stolen from Brentford FC's YouTube) Blackburn A superb Tom Cairney goal helped Fulham record their first victory of the fledgling season with a comfortable 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers at Craven Cottage. The Fulham captain, who endured a frustrating season in the Premier League, demonstrated the poise, positional sense and positivity which sets him apart at Championship level. One to Watch: It would be typical Boro if one of their former players were to nick a winner in stoppage time and they have plenty to look out for, but its ex Boro target Bradley Dack who is my pick of the Blackburn Squad. The ex Gillingham man got his first goal of the new season in the league cup, the London born attacker got 15 goals last season and will be looking to push on this season! Talking Points: - Who will be Boro's penalty taker going forward? - Will we see two fullbacks playing at fullback? - Who makes your starting line up? - Will Boro pick their first win of the season this weekend?
  15. The incident DZ mentions has been shared with mods and being dealt with.
