He isn't very good so I wouldn't offer him a deal.  But I keep wanting us to build a decent squad and play good football and I seem to be in a minority on here so what the hell.  Sign em all back on.

I actually rate Johnson. I'm bias I suppose. But hes a top bloke, honest pro and has given his all to the cause.

Theres far worse to have at lwb or lw.

He's not a good defender and he's not good enough to play in an attacking role.  That's the reality, isn't it?

That'd be great.  Suspect that we're not in a position to buy in decent players though, so it's going to be free signings and cheap rubbish that can "do a job".  

As such, whilst I'd like to never see Marv tackle again, given the number of freekicks he's given away on the edge of the box in recent weeks, as a possible left wing alternative/backup on the cheap, I'd understand offering him a contract.

I think he is decent going forward, actually. And he gives a ***.

We do seem to enjoy mediocrity here.

I've been quite surprised with the football we've been playing, especially today. It is definitely not as boring as under the pulis days. We can play some quite good stuff at times. Hopefully we'll see it more next season if warnock stays

Cardiff played some decent stuff under Warnock, especially when they were in the Championship.  They were solid and shut teams down when they needed to, but could also be quite attacking.

It's almost our defining identity at times.

The last couple of games hes looked okay. But realistically all hes been doing is spamming balls into the box - some decent some not so good. Every other aspect of his game is poor to average. Not to mention the 3 years of absolute rubbish weve had of him until now. We can do a lot better, and hopefully will.

The abundance of left wingers we have, obviously.

A goal and an assist from Roberts today.

This is going to be an unpopular post, but is it really unfathomable that woodgate could have had us clear of relegation by now if hed had Roberts available? I'm thinking the games like barnsley, luton, wigan, Blackburn, forest etc where we just didnt have that creative spark in the final third. 

Its clearly going to be shot down but Roberts has made a massive difference today, we could very well have been walking away with nothing but for him. I think wed have picked up enough points by now had we had him for those games mentioned above.

I think there's a very real possibility that we could have been safe yes, I think he is by far the best player at the club.

Well, the obvious ones are Gestede, Ayala and Shotton. 

Marv loves being at the Boro though. He has turned down 3 opportunities already to try stay here.

Roberts was good today, Tav was the difference though.

    • It annoys me we got Harrison on loan for 2 year deal in the January. But Pulis benched him hardly got any game time. As Pulis rather have Fletcher or Bamford on wing as play the actual winger.  So he decided to change his mind and go to Leeds instead where he has gotten to play every week and grown into a fab player. 
    • Not the usual rugby post from me today...but is anyone else interested to see the "Major announcement of exciting news" that NASA is going to be making about the moon?  I've seen a few rumours that think that the announcement is that they have actually found water on the moon. Which would have huge implications on the 2024 manned missions they are planning.
    • We should have had a front 3 of Harrison, Bamford and traore just over 2 years ago, imagine if they'd have been given the licence to play like their subsequent managers have done. How depressing is that?
    • We were mugged for Bamford he is top class we should have put a buy back clause in his contract like Liverpool do 😆. Why did Pulis sell to buy  utter trash he was my favourite player lovely bloke. It breaks my heart to see him doing it for Leeds United of all clubs.
