Fair play to them! They've been good, not an easy group they're getting out of!

Yeah showed great character getting a point against the Swiss, especially when the Swiss were very dominant. Then Turkey really haven't lived up to the hype at all against Italy and Wales they've looked really average.

Ouch 🤣

When you see something like that it makes you think about stuff and I think its an appropriate time to also say how positive this forum is for myself and my mental health and mood.  It’s a great place

The problem with the gesture itself (in my opinion) is that there are no concrete goals. 'End racism' is a noble idea, but how do we know when that's been achieved? Can it be achieved? I wonder i

Fair play to him, despite missing the penalty Bale has been unplayable today. What a good result for them and almost guarantees them qualification now.

Tbf I've no idea why they had the label of dark horses. Their results on the run up aren't impressive, they don't have any top players. Was a mystery where that was coming from for me

Congrats Australia...very measured performance there against Turkey.

Never even knew they were part of Europe. 😁

 

I thought u would know after the Euro Vision ... But did you know, we once tried to do a double deal for Wallace and Saville?

I will ask though is he not offside stood on the byline like that? Were there Turkish players on the posts?

Don't think you can be offside from a corner. 

I'm surprised you dont see that tactic of running along the byline more often from corners. It can cause chaos.

Interesting; I thought we saw someone get called offside for doing exactly that in one of the first games of the tournament. Must be mistaken.

Think I know the play you were talking about, pretty sure it was tapped to someone and then back to the corner taker and it was the corner taker who ended up being offside

Ah that would make more sense, yeah. Thanks!

Can’t be offside if directly receiving the ball from a throw in, a corner or in fact a goal kick.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
