^ If anyone doubts that the players care 

I want Warnock I also want him as manager next season

I’m drunk and I love this. This is the best I’ve felt about boro in ages. And that’s saying something because there’s not a lot of sunshine.

Like the side with Tav and Robert's starting. However don't like that he is playing Fletcher over Britt who is in form for once. I don't like Dejan has been dropped as he did make mistakes but will only improve by playing games.

Any CB's on here fancy putting there boots on for Friday? 😂😂

Squad is dropping like flies!

If we get beat, Warnock haters will come out in force with that team selection. (Similar to what happened to Woody after Swansea game).

Please please please don't say Dijksteel is playing at CB

Dropped Stoj when he wasn't at fault for any goals at weekend I personally didn't think.

Dropped Britt when he's been scoring goals.

That selection has really baffled me

This is either a masterstroke of a team selection, or the result of throwing darts at a board and choosing the numbers you hit. Don't see the benefit of dropping a keeper who's made some good saves, and I can't fathom the formation.

On the plus side, Reading won't have a clue what to expect now. On the minus side, what they'll probably get is an unprepared shambles of an opposition who couldn't find each other with wayfinding signage and a theodolite.

Let's not kid ourselves, of course he's playing CB.

I can’t for the life of me understand the criticism for Pears? He was on about 9 clean sheets in 12 games and made 1 mistake against Forest and didn’t see him again? Everyone was raving about him at the time, give the lad a chance

    • Not sure I agree with that. If it was a race and we were leading Derby until the final lap and then tripped over our own shoelaces, and that that's the only reason they finished ahead of us, obviously it's our fault that we didn't beat them. But if it then turned out that Derby were on performance enhancing drugs they'd have been disqualified even though it was ultimately our own actions that cost us the race. Obviously their massive coordinate cheating of FFP would be the performance enhancing drugs.   Pulis *** up massively to cost us a play-off spot that looked assured, but the only team that was even close to us outside of the top 5 were a Derby side that cheated consistently. The team in 8th were 3 points behind us, the team in 9th were 7.
    • Jordan had said he'd spoken to people at all ends, I think. Gibson, Morris and the administrator. He seems to count all as either decent people or friends but had stuff to say about Morris' handling of it. He also said knowing Gibson as long as he has, he wouldn't make a fuss about something were there not some justification for it. For me personally, the big thing is looking back at the season in question. Thinking we should be due any kind of compensation for that season is hard. It entirely fits in with the narrative Pulis had after his last game, the whole 'finishing 7th better than 5th the year before'. I have a hard time accepting that finish was anything but our own fault but in fighting this case, we are saying it is in some way Derby's because of their cheating. I don't honestly think there's enough there in sporting terms to suggest they put themselves in a significantly difficult position to best and Pulis was certainly getting paid enough to justify him doing better with the squad we had. But that's just the emotional side of it for me. Reading what Rob Nichols told us and what Jordan has said certainly opens your eyes to how essentially evil the situation remains from a Derby perspective. I still hate Morris for what he's done and I hate the idea they could fight their way out of their situation this season or even look remotely rosy next season. I don't want them to disappear, I'll feel some sense of relief if/when they get bought. But so long as they reach that stage, I'll have them under my own 'intense scrutiny'.
    • Love this from the cameraman, UTB.
    • Interesting... I did hear the Jordan comments but don't fully understand the technicalities of the whole Derby becoming debt-free and returning stronger thing. Was news to me that the £45m thing was *** (I guess Simon may have heard that from Steve himself...?) I just hope it doesn't dissolve into "Boro are trying to kill Derby" and we get piled on... which is the narrative they're clearly desperate to create. We all know what football fans and pundits are like and most people won't read or understand the details. I'm a Boro fan and I still admit to not fully getting some of it. 
    • Check out the love between Crooks & Payero. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
