I don’t get only naming 8 subs. Might as well name one of the young lads for the experience even if he’s never going to come on

Message to Gibson, is that.

Thank God we gone to a back 4 and dropped Spence and Johnson 👍.

Hall must be injured again as I thought he may play tonight and give McNair a rest... Very good line up!

A rest?!

He should try being on furlough and watching the match on the club's website.

That's tired.

I reckon it’ll be 433. Roberts right and Watmore left. Hope Dijksteel is under instructions to overlap Roberts as much as possible.

I'm sure  0-0 bore draw will help lift your excellent mood 

Can't see how watching the match on the website is tiring mind, I'm quite comfortable on my arm chair with the kids going crazy in the background 😂 UTB!

To be fair, I'm very happy with the lineup, but it means nothing if we're still set up to go out and knock the ball long to Britt and the others sit too deep. Personnel is only part of the battle, tactics and intent along with confidence to bring the game to the opposition is just as important if not more so. So let's see how it plays out before anyone can claim we've got what we want yet.

And?  A loss is a loss, isn't it?  We end up with 0 points either way.

And we had a penalty which if converted would have got us a minimum of one point. 
You are starting to brag very early about your preferred line up. Maybe you should wait and see if it works against the worst team in the league?

    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
    • That sounds about right to me, with my fag packet maths.
    • I think you need to double that amount to get it closer to our wage bill mate.  I'd be surprised if we already didn't have more than 4 players on more than £12k per week, not including someone like Assombalonga.  If you include the current loan players, I reckon there would be at least 10 or close to it already on our books - Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Fletcher, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts (for the first half of the season), Assombalonga.  I've left out Morsy but I bet he is somewhere near it as well.  Not sure about the lads who recently signed new deals, probably not at that level.  More than two of those will be above £20k as well.
