No it’s not. Paraphrasing is stating a different meaning using the same words.

Ah I see the confusion now, the same words in a different order.
Paraphrasing is the practice of citing the same meaning using different words, as opposed to stating a different meaning using the same words. By the way I’m not a lawyer or an English teacher, but I did once rescue Brian Blessed from a forest.

spence/tav-- howson morsy saville---johnson/bola

-------------------britt/roberts akpom

all depends on who has a niggle and who doesnt like. britt might have a sore groin again after he tested it out in a game. wing might come in tav might play central. we might even see culson who knows.

That's how lawyers (and politicians) make their living...they would argue that you meant an English teacher, rather than a teacher of English ..and then claim you were biased against Scottish or Irish teachers...  or claim that when you said you were a solicitor, you said soliciter     and there's a lot of people that still think the forest is full of wild bores, so it would be the perfect place for a man of his talents, although I have to admit that he was one of the standout performers in O'Toole's "Macbeth".... little known trivia ...BB was approached to be Dr. Who at one point   that would have been ..  different 🙂

Aye, paraphrasing keeps the same substance; You just express it in a more concise manner. You can even completely re-word it so long as the substance remains. I don’t think I’d have been within a single assignment word count limit at university without paraphrasing like a butcher 😂

Also: DOODLE COMPETITION!

A little something to keep us entertained until kick off on Tuesday night. I want to see your best/worst boro-themed drawings! I will accept photos of hand-drawn doodles or Ms-paint/snapchat jobs. Whatever works for you! Please get them in before kick-off on Tuesday night and I will pick a winner after the game.

Here is my entry.  Completed using my s-pen from my Samsung galaxy note 10+ 😆

Interesting thread well done Smogzilla.

Back to the game, massively important that we are seen as the dominant team and that we are an attacking team expecially at home.

Need a win otherwise we become the draw king specialists.

We are not a relegation candidate this season and not too sure where we can finish but I do know that we are not too far off being a good team for the division.

Take it to Coventry and get 3 points under the belt

If I were a pessimist I'd say that 3 points are essential in this so I'd be predicting a 2-1 loss in typical Boro fashion... Although as a self proclaimed optimist I'll say a tough grindy 2-1 in our favour!

It’s come to my attention that I can spout *** after a Sunday evening skin full. It’s not even interesting ***. Apologies.

Some questions to consider:

Will Britt start after his return from injury?

Will Roberts start and help to unlock their defence?

Does Howson need a haircut?

1. Yes. We need him fit, and playing at home (for what that's worth any more) against a team unlikely to uproot many trees is an obvious way to get him match fit again.

2. Yes. If we have a prayer of promotion this season, Paddy will need to be our Gaston. In terms of creative midfield play, not in terms of making the beast with two backs.

3. Nah. We need more long-haired footballers, not less. And I say that as someone who used to 'rock' the long-haired look until someone walked up behind me in Sainsbury's, tapped me on the shoulder and said "excuse me hen, sorry, son".

Looking forward to this now, hope we smash them. I'd like to see Britt on the scoresheet, Roberts start the match in close support and a few mins for Browne could be good too. 

Here's my masterpiece, just call me banksy

I'm probably dooming us to a freak loss, but I'm feeling confident about this one...even allowing for the fact its a home game.

Coventry's record so far is pretty miserable - W1 D2 L4 F6 A14 so we have every reason to go into this one expecting 3 points.

Predicting a first clean sheet since...the last one...and a couple of goals from set pieces, either side of half time, to make it a comfortable 2-0 win for Boro.

Will add some awful MS Paint artwork later, if I get time.

I think the tears really add to the emotion of this piece. Magnificent 🧐

    • 1. Team and formation?  Same as the last game, with Watmore the first name on the teamsheet. 2: Is it good to change a winning team?  I wouldn't say so, no. So much of football is about confidence, and a winning team develops trust in its component parts. Unless a player is suffering from a knock or fatigue, I'd never change a winning lineup. 3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Nailed on. 4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  While the transfer window is still open, yes. Expect a return to ballooning shots over the bar from the first of Fbruary. 5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... Not for the first time, Neil Warnock is getting the best out of a Boro player. I always wondered what the point of Saville was, but he's beginning to offer a worthwhile presence in the squad - belatedly, but still very welcome. 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Def Leppard have done some good songs, and I respect them for what they are, but Maiden *** all over them. No Prayer For the Dying still sounds great 30 years on, and Maiden have inspired so many of the bands I love that they'll always have a special place in my heart. Though it's best to pretend the Blaze Bayley era never happened. 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yes. We've been maddeningly inconsistent this season, but I think only Norwich are significantly better than us when we perform to anything like our full potential. It's a measure of the transformation Warnock has wrought on the likes of Bola, Saville and Dijksteel that I would be disappointed to miss out on the play-offs - though I accept it's a very real possibility. 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  Gawd knows, but I hope he has a brother we can also sign...
    • Boro Obviously Linked Again Surely Insufficient  Evidence
    • Thought they might have been a few more names branded about today for this elusive winger, any snippets anyone ? My money's on it still being bolasie
    • The fact they didn’t train is simply they hadn’t implanted a risk and migration. Lots of alternatives to train. We where not down to only 10 players as there were several who could have played. What it does highlight is that a sick player is better then those not in the team selection or sat on the bench. Hell if that’s the case we are dire trouble.  It matters not because the onus was on us which is what I’m implying and as I stated my opinion, we are a inconsistent team  doing well. 
    • They'll probably hire him to be fair! 😂
