I feel like this is something we would do 😂

When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna go, I'm gonna go and join Neil Warnock on Teesside,
When I'm playing, yeah I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who plays alongside Uche,
When I get drunk, well I'm no gonna get drunk, as I value my place in the Boro team too much.
And when I score, hey I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who's scoring goals for you,

I would drive 200 miles
And I would drive 200 back,
Because I'm the man who ended up on the recieving end of a Gibbo backtrack...

Da da da (da da da)

Da Da Da Dun Diddle Un Diddle Un Diddle Uh Da Da.... (Fade to tears)

Bidwell while Swansea are in turmoil. Get them rinsed. Is Bryan still without a club?

Bryan is yes but I think he's still being unrealistic with his wages.

Bidwell might be a good shout, I did wonder earlier if we might try and take advantage of their current problems.

Would have been happy with Bennett but at the same time it makes more sense to get a LB who can cover CB aswell. Still think we could do with another body there, so killing two birds with one stone makes sense.

It would take a minimum of 6 weeks for Bennett to be match fit assuming his ligament is fully repaired and even then he could break down again when pushed. He may have lost a yard of pace and the confidence to stick his boot in, Conversely he may be back to his best come the end of October and Wigan have a bargain but I don't think we can afford to carry passengers let alone consciously bring them in.

Bidwell only seemed likely if Swansea could upgrade to Lowe I can't see that happening to be honest. Logically Cardiff's 3rd choice left back Ciaron Brown makes the most sense at the minute, no?

Given the number of new faces, hopefully the next few matches being against middling sides gives them a chance to bed in before the stiffer tests come round. It is very likely a couple of them will take a bit to adjust so hopefully people won't slam them for everything they do wrong for whatever reason. Optimism is not the natural order for Boro fans ..  but I like it..  not a lot but 🙂

Roughly 4 hours to sign LB cover and Prem loan striker/wide forward. Most productive window I can remember.

4hours to sign contracted players

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
