Scene 1: Ext (Day). [On the Rockliffe training pitches, Neil Warnock is playing keepie-up with a ball tied to elastic wrapped around his foot. Dael Fry wanders up, squeezing a spot] FRY: How

I’ve said time and time again (although I don’t post much nowadays) that there is no point in splashing money on players unless the manager is capable of welding them into a successful team. Boro’s hi

Britt Assombalonga - £15m in 2017 Bielsa to Leeds - 2018 but I can’t find his salary for 2018. But he is on a lot for a manager now they’re in the prem at around £8m a year my point is that

Might as well just quote this.

2-0.  Started from Djiksteel.

You're right but he isn't a wing back and when the initial ball gets played into him against the touchline, he doesn't know what to do with it.  However, that's also massively on Bamba, absolutely nowhere near his man, and frankly he looks slow as ***.

5 games for Warnock. If it continues like this he has to go.

Tactics - wrong.

Positions - wrong.

Our squad is pretty good. It's on the manager now.

Agree to a certain extent. But you can’t legislate for how bad some individual performances have been today. Doesn’t matter who the manager would have been. You can’t teach players to make 5 yard passes or dive in recklessly when you’re last man, or somehow cock up virtually an open goal 3v1, or Hall lobbing the ball into the stands when he’s 10 yards in space 😂

Was it really that difficult today?

Lumley

Djiksteel

Fry

Hall

Peltier

 

Howson

Crooks 

Tav

 

Hernandez

Ikpeazu

Jones

Could go 4231 or 433.

 

Instead we ended up with Djiksteel covering the whole right and Jones and Hernandez both primarily on the left. What a royal balls up. Absolute pony.

Though to be fair to Bamba as well, this is his first game, right? So difficult to be too hard on him.

Seems more like another poor team selection and tactics by Warnock.

He has no excuses he's blamed refs, bad luck, lack of signings but he is not getting the best out of these players we have such a shakey defence which for a team managed by Neil Warnock is absolutely criminal.

The individual performances aren't helped by players playing out of position and having to carry a lad at the back who should have retired 2 years ago

How many times do we need to see 3 at the back. Dijksteel and Tav our two best players both playing out of position and having complete shockers is no surprise to me at all.

Probably until we sign a left back. Absurd, laughable and extremely naive from the club/staff to think we’d be ok with one senior left back. Stupidity

    • Jordan had said he'd spoken to people at all ends, I think. Gibson, Morris and the administrator. He seems to count all as either decent people or friends but had stuff to say about Morris' handling of it. He also said knowing Gibson as long as he has, he wouldn't make a fuss about something were there not some justification for it. For me personally, the big thing is looking back at the season in question. Thinking we should be due any kind of compensation for that season is hard. It entirely fits in with the narrative Pulis had after his last game, the whole 'finishing 7th better than 5th the year before'. I have a hard time accepting that finish was anything but our own fault but in fighting this case, we are saying it is in some way Derby's because of their cheating. I don't honestly think there's enough there in sporting terms to suggest they put themselves in a significantly difficult position to best and Pulis was certainly getting paid enough to justify him doing better with the squad we had. But that's just the emotional side of it for me. Reading what Rob Nichols told us and what Jordan has said certainly opens your eyes to how essentially evil the situation remains from a Derby perspective. I still hate Morris for what he's done and I hate the idea they could fight their way out of their situation this season or even look remotely rosy next season. I don't want them to disappear, I'll feel some sense of relief if/when they get bought. But so long as they reach that stage, I'll have them under my own 'intense scrutiny'.
    • Love this from the cameraman, UTB.
    • Interesting... I did hear the Jordan comments but don't fully understand the technicalities of the whole Derby becoming debt-free and returning stronger thing. Was news to me that the £45m thing was *** (I guess Simon may have heard that from Steve himself...?) I just hope it doesn't dissolve into "Boro are trying to kill Derby" and we get piled on... which is the narrative they're clearly desperate to create. We all know what football fans and pundits are like and most people won't read or understand the details. I'm a Boro fan and I still admit to not fully getting some of it. 
    • Check out the love between Crooks & Payero. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
