Teams: Boro v Reading (which, coincidentally is also the name of Middlesbrough Council’s new anti-literacy campaign.... Burning books near you soon!) Location: Madejski Stadium Competition: 

Imagine talking about one of your clubs greatest ever hero's in this way whether you want him back as manager or not. Give your head a shake.

In the west of Ireland with no broadband so travelled 45 minutes to watch the match in my friends pub only to find I had missed it due to an early kickoff. I feel blessed

Getting to the point where I'd like to see Warnock go now. I genuinely had high expectations for this season, looking at what he did with Cardiff in the second season etc. 

Unfortunately, can't see any scenario where Gibson gets rid of Warnock before the end of his final season. Don't think we'll go down, but we'll finish low-mid table for sure.

So no Ikpeazu feel for the guy he started the season really well once he's dropped out the side we've gotten so much worse 

Thats not the reason we got worse, Sporar has alot more quality then Ikpeazu just Ikpeazu suits us better with hoof ball.

Mercifully my link has broken, I won't be trying to fix it.

But I think there's too much been put on warnock here - some just basic  5 yard passes have been going straight to them, it's so hard to get moves going with such awful basics.

Don't get me wrong I'm not a warnock fan but anyone thinking a change of manager will solve things is way off the mark for me

At what point does getting beat every week become the manager's fault?

I’d maybe even consider extending his contract 👍

They are much more technical and will pass around him  he's not that mobile.

With 15 mins left wouldn’t worry about them passing round him more that he should be able to hold the ball up give us something to play off

    • What's been ignored in all of this transfer noise is , a striker scored on his debut ,  COB
    • Found a Dutch defensive midfielder Mees Hoedemakers who may fit the requirements, unfortunately again in the highlights his defensive ability not shown.  The Italians in the previous post and this player have valuations of 1.2 million euros or less if Transfermkt can be believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTj5iZhK0Rs Also an Australian box to box midfielder I'd recommend Boro have a look at is Angus Thurgate, a big improver last season, became more of a threat going forward and  definitely handles the defensive side as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGb-QtRhfas
    • Choudhury looks he would be a top signing if he wants to come here, someone said he's rejected us twice though. Here are two other defensive midfielders I've come across on database searches, both Italian. Pity that their short highlights don't include their defensive efforts, but they both look like they can control play in possession well. Both also have been loaned extensively by their parent clubs, they might be interested in a permanent home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do1xIWsDD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYhm0Rt6PTk
    • Clearly Parker not the only coach that isn’t in charge of recruitment 
    • Just a thought but....   General concensus is we need a lcb and at least two midfielders. And in reality the only ones we've been "linked" with are greaves, choudhary and hannibal. All British based players. We also need at least one more striker, and we've been linked with hoppe, Henry, larsen to name but 3. I wonder if there are possibilities of us finding a gem or two for the defensive and midfield positions from abroad too. Especially given the eredivisie link and we have only really been linked to 1 player from the Dutch league.
