Hi all, Cardiff fan in peace always had a soft spot for Boro ever since seeing your support in Cardiff early doors in the FA cup in the 90's.     Anyway after reading some comments about it

Introduction  I don't know where to start with this thread,  our season appears to be in a state of flux and Boro fans are struggling to know how to feel  We could probably do with a ni

Better team, deserve to come away with something - their goal was very predictable.  Anyone saying Warnock out, ridiculous.

Howay lads it's typical Boro, lose to the team that's lost 7 in a row and batter the team that's won 6 in a row. Easy 3-0 win, Bettinelli MOTM, Assombalonga hattrick.

We could probably do with a nice easy game next where we can get a win,  who is it? In form Cardiff? Great.. 

Happy Jonah Hill GIF

The match sees two of the leagues spritliest young managers come head to head in what is sure to be  a mouthwatering battle of wits..

We can rest assured that we have one of the best goalkeepers in the league between the sticks in Bettinelli

Big questions

With Fletch injured can Britt and Akpom find their goalscoring boots?

Will we be able to coungure up some sort of miracle and get Tav and Bolasie back playing to support our ailing attack

Or will it just fall on the shoulders of Duncan Watmore to save our season?

Perfectly sober, lucid and aware that the followup game against Coventry will be a 12-1 win to the Sky Blues!

Fully expect a back 3 of Fry Hall and Paddy for this game to combat the arial threat Cardiff will pose.

If Fletcher not fit I also would not be surprised to see Mendez Laing up front to offer us some physical presence that Britt or Akpom cannot offer in Fletchers absence.

Bettinelli

Fry Hall Paddy

Dijk Morsy Howson Bola

Kebano

Watmore NML (if fletch not fit)

Mendez-Laing up front?  He shouldn't even be in the side.  Neither should Jonny Teflon of course but no doubt he will be.

It was not something i would do but i can see Warnock doing it if Fletcher is not fit.

Watmore up front for me with Johnson and Kebano out wide.

No doubt we will see Britt huffing and puffing until he is taken off for Akpom to replicate the exact same neutered performance.

What I would give to see a mean, hungry, angry Striker with a point to prove. 

Oh well, keep smiling.

I honestly wouldn't mind trying NML up front, makes very little difference to me. It really can't be worse than having Britt or Akpom up front right now, individually there's not a lot going on without someone actually winning the ball in the air, Akpom and Britt have shown they can't do it. Christ, we'd be better off putting Grant Hall up front in this system than any of those 3.

Well we need to win to close the gap on Cardiff, so I think we'll probably come out half soaked 1st half, go 2 down before the penny drops and we end up chasing the game, so nope don't fancy us at all, our home form of late is absolutely shocking, so repeat of Tuesday 3-1 defeat.

5 defeats in 6 at home. Think about it. 5 defeats in 6 at home. Absolutely shambolic in any standard in any league.

Gonna keep this one short. We are going to get beat. Probably easily.

Defeat, is of course, inevitable.

Our home form has totally collapsed, maybe it’s because we are more vulnerable to counter attacking football at home.

    • Ha! Yes - Warnock doesn't strike me as a "Golden Thread" kind of guy. I guess the idea had to be abandoned once he was brought in. But other clubs have made similar philosophies work for them and I'd hope it is resurrected in the near future. Though maybe, as you say, our chairman and board simply aren't smart enough to see the benefits.  
    • Do you have a link? You probably posted it earlier but I'm very lazy 
    • I think the fact that Bevington left within months of that woodgate press conference and then woodgate was replaced with Warnock a couple of months after that shows that it was likely a difference in philosophy between the chairman and him. I could be wrong but knowing the personality of Gibson it just seems that that was how it probably went. 
    • Ha ha No I was the one who was shaking his head at the comment! Would be good to get your opinions on the station 👍👍. I was the one who was blasting Warnock 
    • Either that or they had the idea, but then were completely clueless as to how to implement it properly. Its all very well having an idea, but in order for it to work, you then have to draw up a detailed plan of what needs to happen and who is going to do which tasks. Stuff like costs and timelines also usually figure in there somewhere. We heard a lot about the idea, but very little about its execution. If they wanted Boro to be the English Ajax, maybe sending someone over to talk to the club and look at their methods might have helped? 🤷‍♂️ For the record, I really wish it had worked. I would have loved to see our academy finally fulfilling its intended purpose of turning out youngsters good enough to step into the first team and push the club onwards, instead of paying over the odds for big name players who probably don't really want to be there.
