I think Tindall watched a different game to me, like.

Just a case of sour cherries...

 

I thought the ref had a decent game. Let them off with a few rugby tackles, but hey ho. I also thought it was a decent game of football, even when we were losing.

There were a few softies I thought from the ref, but it wasn't terribly surprising that when they kept clattering through us that eventually he would start blowing up for soft ones too.

Not sure if mentioned but I didn't see Leo yesterday. Anyone know if anything has occurred? He didn't do his usual sub duties.

I love how vocal Britt was after the equaliser. You could see him rallying the troops to stay focussed and not get carried away. Celebrate. Head down. Play on.

Good job.

Could he be the other coaching member that supposedly has it?

Possibly. Dejan has it so it’s conceivable Leo has been working with the keepers I guess?

Did we also work out what player it was that had it too? I'm thinking Stojanovic, as he's not been on the bench past 3 games. And with Pears seemingly off to Blackburn, it's surprising to see him on the bench in Stojanovic's place.

I wonder if Stojanovic's positive test has put the breaks on Pears' departure?

This is all speculation as I have no idea if Stojanovic is suffering or has been suffering with the virus.

Would all make sense. Hope no one else comes down with it this week. This is the last full week of training we have before the games really kick in.

I don't think it'll be confirmed because it's private medical knowledge, but all the signs point at Stojanovic, yes.

Looking at the Premiership scores I have to ask, are they more focused on scoring more then the opponent and sacrifice defensive play, or is it just because it’s the start of the season. The pace of attacking play is extraordinary. 
I can’t remember seeing so many goals in the past. 
Some decent score lines in the Championship to be fair.

Its a direct result of what I've been saying for a long time on here - defensive football has run its course. Teams that attack and press and play good football are successful now, whereas defensive football rarely gets you anywhere.

I reckon its early season enthusiasm. The players are still fresh and keen to impress their managers and I guess they're wanting to find out where they stand in the pecking order.

I reckon by Christmas things will have calmed down a bit as fatigue and injuries start to bite, as well as managers having a better idea of who they can attack with relative freedom and who they need to try and defend against.

    • Oh dear mate. I have some bad news to tell you about Friend 🙁
    • With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With match fitness a question mark over both I would guess he would rather start with them and then plan to take them off when tiring rather than maybe having to put them on early as a Sub if an injury occurred. Warnock seems very protective of his players and the risk of them picking up injuries which is why I think he may start with Roberts and Watmore as it gives him more in-game control. The obvious choice would be if he started with those that finished on Wednesday night but I suspect he will want to keep morale high across the squad and keep faith in Watmore and Roberts knowing that he can fall back on Johnson and Spence. Whatever he goes with he has my confidence and trust which is something I don't think I have felt about a Boro Manager in a very long time.
    • I think its either Bettinelli's agent trying to rack up interest (which is his job in fairness)  or lazy journalism or more likely a combination of the two. Dimi had an incredible record here for clean sheets in a season but it was a similar story to now with the organisation of the defence resulting in the Keeper having little or nothing to do. No disrespect to Dimi but he was hardly the most athletic or agile Keeper I've ever seen in a Boro shirt, although no worse than the medal bedecked one who came in after him which proved how playing behind a good team can make a keeper look great. Most Keepers would do well behind the current Red barrier in front of them. Bettinelli's vocal skills does add to that sense of impenetrability probably as much if not more so than the actual amount of work he has to do keeping shots out. Decent keeper who I would prefer to stay but I would be more concerned about losing Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola, Friend, Howson etc.
    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
