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

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

    • 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.
