There next 5 games are 

Birmingham and Derby at home

Bournemouth and Wycombe Away

then Sheff Wed at home.

3 of those teams are fighting for their lives, and obviously Bournemouth is a 6 pointer.

I think they'll lose at least 2 of them.

I won't mind being wrong, I think time is running out for us.

I'm just imagining Woody giving the exact same presentation he gave here but because he couldn't work out how to delete the Boro Badge and replace it with a Bournemouth badge it's just this on every p

If Mogga wishes to walk away from management I would be all over him being our chief scout. He can then happily live back home and go spot some talent for us. He has always had a good knack of fi

From our point of view, they are at least against teams who are still playing for something I suppose.

Can only hope they do a Boro.

This is a fun time - but after last season I am just happy to not be at bottom of league wondering if we are going to get relegated. The fact we are 5 points from 6th place is a good place and move in right direction #UTB

If we can somehow win this weekend, we've still got every chance.

After Preston, Bournemouth's next 3 fixtures are Barnsley, Swansea and Middlesbrough.

That's discounting the chance that they could lose to Preston.

I guess that's better than Stoke gaining 1 point

Such a shame that Bournemouth won .. But they will  face a tough run soon.

Glad for Wing's Rotherham late winner

Connor Roberts had a very good game there.

I was hoping Swansea Stoke would finish 1 all. Swansea will now be buoyed by that result for weekend. They were very fortunate as that was never a pen.

We won late on without cheating, so we'd surely be buoyed more.

Yeah but we are Boro so we will just f**k *** up as we just cannot seem to get any momentum.

Albeit we are on sky this Saturday despite it being a 3pm sat kick off

I would not put too much emphasis on that where we are concerned. 
 

We had a fairly decent January fixture list as well but ended up losing 3 home games v lowly Birmignham and Rotherham and a very inconsistent Blackburn .

In the interest of balance, can anyone think of any goals we've scored this season that have came about from blatant cheating?

I can't think of any off the top of my head.

We will get in the playoffs if we just keep winning we can't afford to drop many points at all though now. Like at Swansea this weekend we can't really afford a draw gotta go for the win.

    • Whilst accepting "Barbie Girl" is a parody, I have to agree that AR is right about admitting to singing it...  though I would have had more respect for SD if he had chosen "My Ding-a-ling" 🙂 
    • I disagree that we don't have players good enough to play the ball in a more controlled and purposeful way, particularly since the January transfer window. I wouldn't say any of our defenders are particularly bad on the ball at all, and all of our forwards/wingers thrive with the ball at their feet, not in the air. Not to mention we probably have the worst keeper in the league at long balls. The way we play is completely counter to our individual players strengths and it's purely because it's the only way our manager  knows how to play.
    • we need the players to play with it on the group in tight areas to. most of our squad players dont and just lump it. because of the instructions they are given. that is probably because like we seen under woodgate, they are not good enough to play and will lose possession and cause us problems. the main thing with woodgate tactics was losing the ball and instantly putting ourselves in trouble and outnumbering with guys all over the shop. NW stopped that by making us more rigid in shape and telling them to not dally and lump it over the top. at least that's how i see it in a simplified way.
    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
