I've noticed that there's a lot of sniping on the forum lately, and I think it needs to stop.  Poor davey is being persecuted, much like Jesus was when he looked confusedly at the temple in Gethsemane.  Are we really no better than the Romans? 🤦‍♂️

Romans??????????  What did the Romans ever do for us?

I don't know if anyone else was close by or saw that but I was coming down the stairs in the North for the build up to that second goal. Payero sets up Coburn and we should be saying first and foremos

We had plenty of cover at CB (Fry, McNair, Hall, Bamba, Peltier) decent enough options at RB (Djiksteel, Peltier and at a stretch Howson) but a shocking lack of cover at LB. 

I have no problems really loaning Wood, Spence or Coulson out. They should all benefit from first team football but probably wouldn’t get it here.

I think Boro players get better in fans minds the less they play. 

What I can’t understand is not getting cover in for LB.

Fry - injury prone

McNair - debatable about his best position, doesn't want to play CB and previously injury prone. 

Hall - injury problems

Bamba - 36, hasn't played in 2 years

Peltier - 34, hasn't played in a year. 

Dijksteel - injury prone

Howson - not a rb

Add to that the fact Warnock has expressed a desire to play 5 at the back over pre season, we absolutely did not have enough cover, never did. Have to look past just the numbers, have to look at the reliability of the players we have.

Absolutely wonderful this…

 

Not only have we got to endure another game with this *** in charge… but he’s already got his excuses lined up before the match even kicks off!

 

We must be the only club in English football that wouldn’t have sacked him given that he is ruining the club in every possible way… Woodgate was a terrible manager but I’d happily argue that both Pulis and Warnock have set this club back much further in terms of footballing mindset and ruining youth than Woodgate did.

If NcNair and Crooks/Howson go into the back line our centre midfield will then be interesting.

JLS and Payero both with question marks over fitness and having completed international travel.

Could we play a team of just CM’s?

All three set the club back but for different reasons, had Woodgate remained we would have been playing Sunderland last season and this one like as not.

We are still gonna win tomorrow so that's what matters.

I hope you're right, and I do genuinely think we'll win tomorrow, but I've genuinely lost all motivation.

The constant excuses and deflection has just worn me down.

I'm long since passed that point mate so I'm just enjoying things in my own little way.  I think we'll win tomorrow because we're a better side.  If you want Warnock out then really you'd be hoping for three defeats in a row starting tomorrow.  Losing to all of the bottom teams would see him gone probably.  It would be incredibly difficult for the club to justify continuing as they are with a 3-3-8 record, failing to beat any of the (current) bottom five, and losing to four of them.  We'll win a couple though anyway.

Excited for this one just to see the team! No idea who he’s going to play where 

The mystery striker brought on in the 90th minute could very well be me, though I told NW that at 64 I could not run fast anymore....in fact can't run!😄

Actually thinking about it probably why it will be the 90th minute because of the explanation!

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
