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

Got to admit I have no idea who either of those people are. Are they those "slebrity" types that are somehow famous for doing nothing except dating people who are famous for a reason?

 

Liam Payne is a former member of One Direction, a stupidly successful boy band. 

Cheryl, formerly known as Cheryl Cole, was a member of Girls Aloud and was married to ex-footballer Ashley Cole.

She started dating Liam in 2016 and had a kid with him but they split up in 2018.

No, I'm not KM in disguise.

A blackmores night reference on oneboro, never thought I'd see the day that a medievil folk group would get a mention in such a mainstream format.

I'm mostly a fan of his missus. 😉

If there’s no Bola and Djik is out as well we might have no choice but to put out a Pulis back 4.

 

Oh god...

Peltier...Hall...Fry...McNair

Still...I think I'd prefer that than trying to shoehorn defenders or wingers into wing-back roles.

But knowing Warnock, he'd probably prefer a back 3.

I have always said give managers 10-12 games at the start of the season so form starts and players bed in before judging so for me this is crunch time for Warnock he either starts to improve results and performances or he needs to go.

I tell you what I personally want but don't expect if we lose if we lose I don't want Warnock berating the referee, I don't want him making an excuse that the players missed their breakfast and I don't want him saying we were unlucky somehow and/or bad decisions cost us the game. If he refrained from all the above and was honest I think that would start gaining him respect back with Boro fans. 

Id go with this ...

...............................Lumley...................................

Howson...........Hall.......Fry...................Peltier

Tav.............Payero....Siliki....................Hernández

..................Sporar.......Ikpeazu....................................

 

I have defended Warnock a fair bit but he needs to start paying that back soon as I am starting to get fed up and cant defend the indefensible particularly with his antics against refs.

Not defending Warnock as he needs to put a bit of a lid on it, but find it strange that when people like Frank do it, they don't get the same stick and some even call him smart...  guess it pays to be fashionable 🙂

We have a decent record playing at their place and it seems we could be light defensive wise, best part of defence is attack and I fully expect Boro to take the game to them, whether or not we play the game remains to be seen🙂

We are one of Reading's bogey teams let's hope we wiil, in the theme of the opening post, be a "boogie" team at full time.

Going to the game will give you all a wave!

I was just wondering if Warnock was considering playing his Uche coochie man.  If so lets hope he's got his Mojo working

I have a dark premonition our defence will be So-Leaky, we will ship goals and the fans will Peltier Warnock until he puts his Hernandez up and admits he made a right Halls up. Will likely seek refuge in the nearest Tavernier. 😉

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
