I know.  I wouldn't boo him either.  I'm just cross we didn't recognise what his tactics would be.   We totally played into his hands. 

I can just imagine the team talk "Get into em from the off go a goal up and watch the panic"

Middlesbrough vs Birmingham                                          Saturday 16th December – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                      Riverside Sta

😉

I can only see another win here. As much as i like Karanka. Brum just isn't the team for him. 4 - 0 Boro.   What are your top 3 favourite moments/memories from the Karanka era? The Brig

Think the manager has to take as much flak as the players for today. Lost the tactical battle against Karanka.

Our initial line up wasn't right in the 1st half. Allowed them way too much time on the ball. Karanka then out-manouvered him by subbing on that extra CB who neutralised our own changes.

 

An off day. We go again.

I think most managers approach games against us the same way. Start bight on the front foot because we find it hard to come back and probably revert to hoofing balls into no mans land.

4 points off the top 6 as it stands, with an equal number of games played, it does look like a season where we'll flirt with the play-offs rather than solidify a place.

Still a huge improvement on last season, but frustrating.

It’s fine, we’ll go up next season.

Yes?

Wages don't stop a virus.

Assombalonga was absolutely anonymous today, I've already said so myself.

I don't get people's hatred for Britt he contributed far more and had alot more touches than Akpom did

Did he contribute far more?

His only impact was to stop Saville scoring.

At least Akpom had a goalbound header blocked by Friend.

I don't hate Assombalonga, but he was rubbish today.

I say let Brit leave. Don’t think he has done near enough to justify his place in the team.

He made alot more runs had alot more movement. Made runs with the ball got into the box Akpom isn't good enough said it before wasted millions signing Akpom. We would of been better using Akpom money to give Britt a new contract.

I'm worried.

I feel confident that Boro should win this comfortably...but whenever I feel that way, they usually find a way to mess up.

So I'm trying to force myself to be pessimistic...

 

...gonna be a tough one today. Don't fancy our chances...

I'd just like to apologise...my premonition came true (for once)! ☹️

If there is ever a team you want to play when you are on a terrible run it’s Boro. Think I might put the mortgage on a Brum

Not the only one

I don't know what the weird situation is with Roberts and Warnock but it's absolutely infuriating. *** me off no end.

Tav needs to be the first name on the team sheet centrally and in the most advanced position. Stop bloody shafting him out on the wing to make room for 3 plodding central players. We lose so much attacking energy without him buzzing around in there.

The less said about Warnock's love affair with Johnson the better.

    • I don't think either of them is in any way better than our level either. They're good for a top half championship side but they wouldn't see a minute in the premier league. Maybe in a few years Time, but for now definitely not
    • MFC v QPR, Friday 17th April 2021 Kick Off: 12.30 Location: The Cellnet Riverside Stadium "Tenth versus Eleventh... Will we see a major swapping of places in the league?" This Saturday, an early kick off sees the showcases a dramatic limp towards the end of the season for two teams that may have harboured promotion hopes at the start of the season. The kick off time was rescheduled following the sudden death of Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh so as not to clash with his funeral. There really isn't a great deal to play for, for either side in this one. We could swap places in the league. We could try and get some winning momentum to take into next season. We could play some of the kids, see if they are any good. To me, this season now feels a bit like the last few weeks at school before the summer holidays. You've already had your report, the weather is getting better and it doesn't really matter what you do now as it's not going to make much difference. Fresh start next year! Fry and Tavernier are still unavailable for this one. Assombalonga's brief cameo at Bournemouth probably didn't do him any favours for the rest of the season or next. It looks likely that we might see Josh Coburn given some game time before the end of the season. He's a striker and looking like he might be a good one for the future, may as well see what he can do now!  No doubting that our woefully inept loanee keeper will be given another chance to demonstrate his lack of ability. He reminds me of an outfield player who has had to play in goal because the proper keeper got sent off or injured during the game. I keep find myself thinking "a real keeper would've done better..." a lot.  VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE A quick look and I found this here. Basically of the same opinion as most of us. Nothing to play for. Give the reserves a chance. etc. etc. FOOT IN BOTH CAMPS Give us a goal John O'Rourke played for the hoops after leaving Boro in the 70's Mickel Beck joined QPR on loan from Derby after leaving Boro in the 90's Warnock saved from relegation then guided QPR to the Premiership in the 00's. TALKING POINTS Meh...
    • Ah got you! Yeah in terms of players we have signed post-relegation, I don't think there has been any.  You could argue the likes of Dijksteel and Bola would potentially go to clubs further up the chain than us. If they did you could have them as examples, but that is all hypothetical at the moment.
    • Adama was also brought in when we were playing at a higher level, whether he was ready for that or not. He was brought in to play at that level. The reality is he wasn't ready for it and Pulis made it so that he was, for sure. But it's not like we spent a less than significant sum on a player whilst we were in this division and made them better. Braithwaite has the trajectory, but as you say he didn't get his move to the Spanish top flight because of his development here, it was for the same quality and expectation we had of him when we brought him here.
    • I did mean our second relegation! But Adama is the best/only recent example that fits the bill imo. It's not good.
