Oh well. It'll be nice to have an NE derby again next season with Boro vs. Sunderland. 

Some exciting away days at Doncaster, Blackpool, Accrington, and Milton Keynes to look forward to too!

It'll make a nice change to go into games with a bit of optimism. 😉

Thanks, was just grim to have but am back to being perpetually disappointed by Boro now! 😅

Are you sure you wouldn't rather go back to having the virus? 😁

 

Just kidding obviously! Happy to hear you got though it okay. 😌🤗

Not to worry. It'll be much better in the next game if the fans can turn up.

🤦‍♂️

😂

If and when the fans return, I think its going to be more like...

The statisticians have been kind and counted the shot going wide that their keeper saved as a shot on target.

Still a bit shell-shocked by just how poor we were yesterday.

Hard to see how we'll compete at L1 level, honestly, between the squad we'll have left after contracts expire, those we'll have to sell and Woodgate's complete lack of management ability.

Time to lighten up a bit folks. We’re not even in league 1 and people are worrying about how we will cope down there. We haven’t gone down and are not in the drop zone. We all knew that there would be a big turnover of players at the end of this season due to the expiry of big contracts and we should be on more stable financial footing for next season. It’s not all doom and gloom (yet).

If you watched the match on Saturday, I'd say the performance pretty much opitimised doom and gloom.

Thank you @Blanco. I always try to look at positives the following day after i have got over my own melt down and your post has provided some.

Does anyone know why Moukoudi Wasn’t in the team yesterday? It seems odd and he’s changed his twitter bio to St Étienne player. Has he gone back?

Well I forgot that football was on yesterday. Apparently so did our players. Skimmed through the thread and agree with all the pre-match comments about the starting lineup, what a poor selection. Though I can see that fitness may have heavily influenced the selection. Gestede by himself just does not work, despite him being in recent good form he needs another striker up there with him to be effective. Wow. What a bad XI. Result no surprise.

I think I read Woodgate said he was ill which was why he wasnt in the team.

He tweeted a message of support for the team yesterday, so I'd be surprised if he had done a runner.

Especially with him being a loan signing and the French season being over. He's on a long term contract, so he doesn't have to worry about injury and being stuck without a club.

    • 6 of our first team squad are straight from the academy, given there are only 23 players in it, that's not bad. You could arguably count Spence and Wing too, though I wouldn't.
    • An Oxo cube in hot water plus cayenne pepper fixes anything
    • I guess our academy isn't all that great after all. Maybe I'm just naive but I thought one of the main reasons for having an academy was to produce players that could break into the first team. Now obviously, like any recruitment / training process, not EVERYONE is going to make it, but I'd have thought we'd be seeing a few more making the step up to the senior squad.
    • Excuse me sir, I am not Welsh and I am contacting my lawyers right at this very moment to sue for slander!!
    • Anyone remember that rapid youth group striker who performed at ridiculous levels for england youth groups up to 17s even forcing his way into Karanka's thoughts at one point? Bradley Fewster. He's currently semi pro at Whitby Town 4 years later, I've said over the past 12 months that Walker is at a critical stage where he'll either absolutely shine out on loan or he'll end up following Fewsters footsteps. Reality of his situation is, whether you think Warnock will 'need' him or not, this is probably the most important season of his career it will determine what level he will be playing at in 4 years time because the youth strikers we have coming through look really good and keeping Ste Walker around an extra season taking up a spot in the 23s if he has a poor season is not something I imagine the club will do. It's like Chapman and Mondal they looked absolute livewires in the UEFA youth league in 16/17 fast forward a few years Junior's spent most of his time in non league and Chapman's spent most of his time sitting in stands or on his couch. This isn't talking down our youngsters it's just the harsh realities of the transition from youth football to senior and from evidence available Walker might have enough there or he might not but 5 sub appearances for us this season wont give us the answers we/him need for his career so sending him out made complete sense for all parties.
