I wouldn't assume Akpom will leave quite yet, he's only going if we have a replacement

He will if I put him on the back of my shirt

Its on goal difference according to site I found, so Australia can’t get into top two positions unless they win.

I don't think he is being followed by Muniz!

To be fair, Mendieta once followed me on twitter, then very quickly unfollowed me again... (I think he must have thought I was the official premier league twitter account as my profile pic was the old premier league logo :p)... same could have happened here!

True - to be fair - I am being cynical after seeing the photoshopped image of Rodrigo.

Now Mendieta was a top bloke.  I taught his two kids for a while before they moved back to Spain with their mum.

Seems like an incredibly arrogant take to me. There are very few teams world wide that stick to the same formation week in week out regardless of opposition. Are we really in a position to say that we’re A) competing for a top 3 position right now and B) good enough to compete for a top 3 position by imposing our will on the rest of the league?

The answer for me to both questions is a resounding no. That may change but right now, we’re no where close to that level of comfort.

I don't think it's arrogant at all. 

Warnock is here for one thing and one thing only - promotion. Otherwise what is the point of him being here? It has to be this season as hell likely retire next summer, so we need to start thinking and preparing like we can finish amongst the top 3 teams or its never going to happen. 

Most top teams in their respective divisions do stick to he same formation every single week btw. Man utd, man city, Liverpool, Chelsea (after lampard went), Leicester all stuck to the same set up all season and they were the top 5 teams in the country. Same for the top teams in every league around europe. Better quality leagues obviously but the same concept applies wherever you go. 

We saw this all last season, and not just against the top teams. Warnock was changing his entire team and approach for teams at the bottom end of the league game after game and it backfired on countless occasions. 

It's no coincidence that our one promotion season in the last 12 years since relegation was the season we played the same 11 in the same formation all season long. I don't think we had the best players in the league that season, I don't think we had the 2nd best either. But we got there through consistency and everyone knowing their jobs back to front regardless of who we played.

He used to follow me too, and I've seen he's watched a couple of my Instagram stories every now and again. Strange

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
