Rotherham vs Boro 1-2 (Saville, Akpom)


Recommended Posts

We still don't pass to each other with enough pace. Especially when we start at the back. 

It really bugs me to see the ball trickling across, allowing the opposition to close us down.

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

Actually one good thing I liked about Malley, wasn't afraid to zip the ball from side to side and forward.

So that it's clear, the above comment wasn't meant to be taken seriously.  I'm not sure how it is that all of a sudden all of my posts must be taken literally by a number of people but clearly this is the case.  If I was to do the same then I'd have to assume that Blanco thinks I'd buy a football shirt because the person whose shirt it is, did a Nazi salute once or something.  Maybe he really does mean it or maybe he's joking.  I choose to think he's joking rather than looking to be offended by it but then I've always though that's part of being a mature adult - having a level of understanding of things.  Apologies to anyone who was offended by the use of the word doyle though.

If a person expresses themselves without prejudice then it should be encouraged not denounced.

Definitely joking 🙃

I was much happier with Boro's performance but the defence looked brittle to non existent against a struggling side.

I didn't watch the game, but from reading the match report and comments on here, it seems like we once again got off to a sluggish start and conceded the first goal, before we started playing.

I guess it helped we were facing relegation strugglers, who were a man short for most of the game, otherwise we might not have got the 3 points.

I do kinda wish I'd watched now, if only to see how young Malley got on. Sounds like a promising prospect.

Tsk. Have you been going and upsetting people again? 😁

For what its worth I agree entirely. Some humour takes a certain level of intelligence and maturity / worldly wisdom / exposure to different ideas & viewpoints to appreciate.

I've always maintained that as long as you're not actually using slurs / insults against individuals or groups, you're in the clear. Even on an internet forum it should usually be possible to tell the difference between edgy humour and an intentional insult.

As someone who has had to deal with racism in real life, I'd like to think I've become pretty good at differentiating between intentional insults and abuse and humour that simply pokes fun at certain characteristics.

But thats just me. I also appreciate humour, like art is subjective. Although I also have to say some of what I consider "hypersensitivity" (when people cry "racism" when there clearly was no such intent) does make me 🤦‍♂️

I think people just need to be able to laugh at themselves more and its sad that comedy now has to be censored, so as not to offend these snowflakes.

 

For the record I'm perfectly okay with the word "doyle" - its a fine upstanding Irish name, after all.

Would love to know how it came to be used as an insult mind. 🤔

    • @DurhamRedi get that concern but at moment if you look at the possible first 11. We got Dijksteel, Fry, Bola and Tav all under 25. Add to that Lumley and Paddy who are both 26. That is 6 out my first 11 that are 26 or under.  In terms of 30 or above we only really have Howson and Morsy.  And Hall but I dont think Hall starts if Fry and Paddy are both fit. A bit more experience probably wont do us any harm in terms of grinding out results. Fully respect some posters might not see it that way mind  
    • It's more because this is the route I want the club to go down sign players with potential not 30 year olds who are passed their peak. That is the case with Smith and hoillet 
    • Just seen Hull close to signing Dion Charles from Accrington, he's one of the standout L1 strikers in my opinion would've liked us to have a look 
    • If distance is all that matters, then hard to beat this one 🙂
    • Can i ask where the sudden love and appreciation for Mendez Gomez has come from on this board? I seen people mention him a fee times in last couple days especially when not being happy at the signing of Michale Smith. Despite fact ones a winger and other is a striker so am not even understanding the comparison  Did anyone even know who Mendez Gomes was until @diggerlad07 mentioned we scouted him? And now he suddenly this up and coming talent in everyones eyes that we must sign? Reminds me last summer when this board had a meltdown at the club for losing out to Brentford for Charlie Goode and we all know how well he did for Brentford.
