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

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 🧐

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
