Was probably the best result for us Huddersfield seemed to be quietly going away from relegation issues, yes massive game one that I am prepared to be arrested for as I try and get into the ground to shout out my support.

So if you hear "CT who are ya" then you know I have made it!

And if BC think they can stop the rot by playing Boro, as a lot of other teams seem to do so, then they have another think coming.

 

Who are you and what have you done with the mild mannered DS

Just leaving this here:

I feel like I have to keep pointing this out- karanka got us from relegation to 12th in this first half season loaning only ayala. In his first full season he got us into the play off final spending l

Who do you think you are kidding Bristol City, If you think the match is won? We are the boys who will stop your little game. We are the boys who will make you think again. 'Cause who do you t

God I wish him and Benedict would get back together for another season of Sherlock. One of the best things the BBC has done in ages.

Yes, I loved that programme, along with Line of Duty and Luther, When it wants to, the BBC really comes up with the goods.

Have you tried Elementary. Same premise with Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock. Very good series

Typical Gatiss going off the rails though

I was put off by the fact its a US show. Just didn't see them making a good version of it. But if you reckon its worth a watch, I'll give it a go.

Definitely worth it. Touches a lot on Sherlocks opium dependency and the way Dr Watson (played by Lucy Liu but it works) becomes a big part of his life as well as all the detective stuff. Not as comical as the Cumberbach/Freeman mix but they have a good dynamic.

Worth a watch. And it has Lucy Lui in at as a bonus. 😍

1. Would you continue with a 3-5-2 system?

2. Do Britt and Fletcher have to be played together to be effective?

3. Warnock was spotted riding his bike in a viral video this week. Whats the most boring interaction you've had with a sportsperson/ celebrity?

1. With the players we have I think 3 at the back with wingbacks suits us best. So yeah continue with it.

2. I think we've seen flashes of what the 2 of them can do together up top. I think going forwards they can be a very effective partnership. Was it the goals they scored against Hull and Bristol (away) where they just pretty much 1-2ed it all the way in?

3. Met Steve Borthwick (Former Saracens and England Rugby Captain) whilst watching the Olympic triathlon at Hyde park back in 2012.

Damn that opening post is a masterclass in tactical analysis! Wonder if he's on the club's payroll? Looks like they've got some good peeps on their forum anyway.

Usual matchday nerves are starting to kick in. Trying to stay calm by watching the cricket...its actually helping a lot!  😴

Sadly, I watch the games with the sound down so I won't be able to hear you.  I want to have as realistic a Riverside experience as possible so that means sitting in silence with an underlying seething rage and befuddled bemusement about what I'm being forced to watch.

Also, and this point can't be stressed enough, you're weird.

That's a great opening post by them. Interesting to see what outsiders think of the squad, quite different to how we view our own players!

Would they still think that if they had to watch the players like we do, week in week out?

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
