Next 'Greatest' Poll - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Alright my fellow doyles!

I'm up for running another 'Greatest' poll after the 'Greatest Squad' one seemed to be enjoyed. Next question is - what do you want it on?

A few options that've been bandied about or I've though of:

Greatest Squad - Pre-1995 Edition

@BillyWoofs_shinpad I think it was put this one forward. There's a handful of squad numbers from the 70s/80s, so it could work, though could also be position based.

 

Worst Squad - Boro Edition

Think it was @Liquid who suggested this one. Again, could be squad number or position based.

 

Greatest Concept Kit - Boro Edition

Saw a site this morning which gave me this idea - also picked up from the kit vote the club ran on Twitter earlier in lockdown. Could run it like a Knock-Out Tournament with Home and Away on either side to come up with the Greatest Concept Kit pairing as voted by OneBoro fans.

 

If you have any further ideas, feel free to drop them here. We can have a vote on the final selection.

I think worst squad would bring plenty of discussion (and humour).

Worst squad for me. Would be fun

It would be too easy, just copy out the most recent team sheet.

Worst squad could be fun

Given our history of transfers, it has to be the worst squad. I could see that being a lot of fun (even if it forces us to relive some painful memories).

I'd prefer to have a greatest squad thread. We haven't had a lot of positive things to discuss on this forum for a few years now and a worst squad thread isn't going to lighten the misery very much!

I dunno, I think we've had a lot of fun discussion about some of the worst players to play for us on here. Regardless of what's happened this season, I don't think many of this current squad fit into the bracket of 'worst in 25 years' so it's not likely to descend into just firing off the current batch of players. I guess perhaps the most popular contributions on here would be Bola, Browne and Gestede. But two of them are very young and I think there's still hope for improvement, particularly in Browne's case. And Gestede is not one of the worst players I've seen play for us, simply one of the worst signings when you consider the fee, wage and point at which he was signed. If he'd have come in on a free and was on a wage more respective of his ability, I don't think many here would have had half as much a problem with him.

The current team is the worst one I’ve seen since the mid 80’s, it’s not about individuals, it’s about the team as s whole. I think we’ve got a terrible manager and a team that plays awful football and very rarely wins.

I mean, the idea of making a worst squad poll is not based on picking literally the worst performing squad out of any season. It's absolutely about individuals, just like the greatest one was. 😄

I'd go for the worst squad and do it by squad numbers again, could be interesting.

    • Which is why I dont get the clamour for 2 up top. Whether we play one or 2 up front we rarely score. We might as well keep it tight, frustrate and see what happens. If we had an Ian Baird type forward then it might suit us but with the limited soft forwards we have its a waste of a position.
    • Lambs are nastier than that......more like being savaged by a dead sheep
    • Yeh  the goals scored column doesn't lie, but I can honestly say that at the end of the QPR game I wasn't saying our players couldn't have given anymore. Warnock has spoken about defending from the front I watched  QPR defenders when they had the ball  with plenty of time to pass not  getting closed down or hurried. A QPR team with very little to play for should have come off that pitch bruised and battered known they'd been in a game rather than feeling they'd being mauled by a lamb.
    • not sure marcus browne is going to do a job at left back..
    • That's Marcus Browne off to Wembley.
