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. 🤔

    • 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.
    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
