Barnsley won v Forest and Huddersfield and Stoke found that little extra to beat good teams when needed, can we find something? 

Yep. Schizophrenic Boro are due a roaring win after the last game being a dreary loss. I honestly think we'll get a result here. Warnock hates Shef Wed and we hate Monk! 2-1 Boro. Saville and Fletcher

Just saying... I'm the Oracle of OneBoro. Apart from goalscorers... Can't do them.

One of our best performers since the restart?  Johnson?  Are you having a laugh?

Man did he kill your dog or something? The man has done all we asked from him, has provided a relatively consistent threat down the left and has provided a number of great crosses. It's his best spell as a Boro player and I, personally, believe him to be in the top 3 or 4 performers across all of Warnocks 8 games. He's dodgy defensively, he always will be, but I think he's done a decent job at a role he's not suited for & should be applauded for doing so.

Saville is another one that I believe has been one of our best performers since the restart, or are you going to disagree there again?

Sav, Tav, Howson, Johnson & Dijksteel (in the last 3 games) have been the players I've been most impressed with over Warnocks 8 games.

Nearly though, you had the wrong CM & the wrong ST, but right idea!

Panic, what panic!

Good we know where we are and what has to be done.

For the last 8 games my lad paid for the home games and I paid for the away games did not think at the time I would end up 100% and he with zero, thank goodness for playing away!

Can I thank each and every member who produced the mach day threads this season even if it means SmogDane opening the matchday threads next time round.

Also thank you all for contributing to the threads, we have achieved the 3rd highest total post wise for a season with a very healthy average of 482 posts for every single game.

And finally well done to Barnsley I hope you have got a great lawyer for what might come.

What a roller coaster and unforgetable season this has been

Are you telling me I'll never be able to forget this season?!😭

Johnson has done well as a wing back and has done his best to play out of position when Warnock obviously didn’t fancy Coulson. He’s out of contract but has played every match - putting the team ahead of  himself unlike Ayala, Gestede, Shotton and Clayton. 
 

I don’t think we’ll offer him a contract (I wouldn’t be aghast if we did though) but think he deserves some respect for the way he’s fought for the team in these last 8 matches. Would have him over any of the players who wouldn’t commit or Nmecha and Morrison.

I actually understand where you are coming from, he's done an okay job in a position which is unnatural to him and at least he has shown some loyalty by playing out of contract till the end of season (same as friend) and they deserve massive credit for that.

I am sure we will get some stats thrown at us to show us that he's been terrible, but I see where you are coming from.

Not sure I would be keeping him at the club as I think it's time for a complete fresh start that we require this summer.

Tavernier, Saville, McNair and I'd say Britt (god 1st for everything) have really performed in these last 8 games under Warnock.

No, he just didn't play very well for us.  He has provided a few good crosses, a number of smacked hopeful balls into the area and that's about it.  If that was his best spell as a Boro player then that says a great deal about just how bloody bad he's been in the time he's been here.  1 assist for the great attacking player and you just named 5 players there who you yourself believed have been better so what does that say!  You can add Fletcher and Assombalonga to that list as well as they've both done their jobs better than Johnson has.

Actually I named 4 others because Johnson was one of the 5 I named 🙂

Been having a few cans to celebrate that, Absolutely fantastic to see us survive. Warnock I'd argue has saved us from the brown and smelly there. Genuine shame to see Wigan get relegated on a points dedication. Absolute crying shame that. 

Wonder what Mrs Warnock must be thinking about him potentially getting in to yet another job after his retirement some 10 years ago, and I also wonder if Blackford will ever get that kitchen done!

Let's be honest we have seen awful displays from each and every player up to end of season not many of come through this season with flying colours however I think we can all agree that improvement has been noticed and that maybe we have the start of a better team moving ahead, one that quickly starts winning at home.

The form at home since boxing day has been nothing short of disastarous and many players were responsible for that

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
