Racism is fine so long as it's intended as a joke, of course.

Should we have a vote to decide whether CT's comment was intentionally racist or not...and if so, ban him from the forum?

I'm desperate for us to win this, but yeah, a Rotherham win would put them a point behind Derby with 2 games in hand, they could do it. Derby and Sheffield Wednesday both going down would be a be

Genuine guy is Marv. Stand out player in 1st half of the season. Very unlucky to not have been involved more. Loves it at Boro.

Malley has very nice feet. Looks hard to deal with in possession

It wasn't intentionally racist, it was clearly sarcasm and if you can't tell the difference then you probably shouldn't be posting on the internet.

No...it was racist and shouldn't be up for debate. Sorry it's wrong, not funny. Not a joke

It may be unintentional and sarcasm, but it still is racism and its shouldn't be tolerated.

I’m very open minded when it comes to humour/sarcasm and get offended by very little but there was no humour and I didn’t really see the sarcasm in the comment. Just not necessary if anything really

Knowing CT he was either being sarcastic or deliberately provocative...or possibly both. Its hard to tell sometimes.

Its kind of a meme comment.

 

Mind you it does smack of double standards that BillyWoof(?) got panned for his joke about Warnock while CT's comment goes unchallenged.

Especially as mine was an anti racist comment 👀

I took it as a joke.

While CT is undoubtedly an odd bird, judging from his posting history I'd never consider him to be racist.

My vote question was also intended to be a joke...especially as its down to the mods to pass judgement on stuff like this anyway. 😉

Tell you what the keeper didn't grab the ball when we scored but was ruled out, he had it loose between his hands still very difficult call and not having a go at the ref for this as he sees it only once but probably should have been given.

    • Our players aren't told to pass the ball, that's the major issue. They're told to get the ball forward as quick as possible and try to win first and second balls. Our pass percentage will always be in the lower quarter of the league, regardless of who we buy.  I do definitely agree with improving the midfield - though I'd much prefer it was a midfield two with tav just ahead of them. 
    • Out of the teams above us, we only have a better passing % accuracy than Barnsley. We need players who can actually pass a ball, and i'd hope we are looking at improving our midfield 3, as I feel we lack real quality in these positions. Hopefully Mcnair will get more time in these positions next season, as he isn't a CB i'm overly confident in. 
    • 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.
