How To Solve a Problem Like The Boro

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Lot of extra time on my hands at the minute so I've been working on  a miniseries addressing the current situation at Boro, focusing on the main areas of concern and how we could potentially improve. 

 

Part one reviewing the current squad and where NW will look to strengthen is here.

Part two looks at the potential benefits of bringing in a director of football and the long-term future of the club

Part three below.

Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. UTB.

Brilliant and fair assessment of the situation at Boro at the moment, well written articles too Erimus. 👍🏻

Love Smithy's transfer suggestions aswell, if only we had someone like that scouting at the Boro. You should email the article every day to Big Gary Gill and hopefully someone will pay attention eventually. 🙂

Amazing. Articulated my current thoughts on the boro better than I ever could - especially the opening section on Gibson and the context needed when criticising him. As I, you, and many others have been saying for a few years now: I'm not Gibson out, I'm DoF in.

Brilliant work Erimus! 👍

I don't normally like reading long articles, but your writing style is entertaining, straightforward and informative.

Those articles put some of the BBC's writers to shame. Looking forward to Part 3.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Really appreciate it and cheers to everyone on the forum for the engaging discussion - it's making working from home a lot easier.

I don’t often read long winded articles but the story flows and so well written it was educational and a pleasure to read. 
 

Very well done.

Fantastic read, thanks for sharing. I hope the club go down the DoF route you’ve outlined but I’m not sure Gibson is quite there yet. And I can’t imagine Pulis or Warnock would advocate it either but hopefully someone else has his ear.

Superbly written, and compelling reading. Hope any MFC personnel who venture onto this board see it and share it with anyone in a position to shape the club's summer transfer policy.

Think I jinxed myself by saying I had a lot of extra time on my hands working from home - things haven't half picked up. 

 

Here's the third and final part of the miniseries, looking at the real golden thread of any football club - the connection between supporters and the club.

All three an excellent read. There's a nice balance to the writing too. 

 

Can someone remind me how you add to another posters 'reputation'? It's been a while..

    • We have played the top four already and even QPR and Cardiff away are not easy games. Once the amount of games rack up and the quality of the opponents, good, bad and mediocre levels out amongst all the sides we should have a better idea. As it is only Reading, Bournemouth and Boro are unbeaten in the last six games in the Championship. If Howson's goal had stood and had the Ref blew for the infringement on Saville we would be in on 14 points. No doubt there will be a lot more if only's through the season and hopefully fortune going our way but if we can avoid injuries and suspensions we could be in a good place come January when the window opens again. Sometimes its best to fly under the radar, I imagine that while Reading are enjoying life at the moment the pressure of expectation is building.
    • I think it's the hair colour.  Souness had darker hair, Ashcroft's was lighter.  He does look angry though, so that's definitely a Souness trait 👍
    • On reflection, it does look more like Billy Ashcroft than Souness. Nevermind 🤣🤣🤣
