Boro vs Peterborough 2-0 (McNair (pen) Coburn)


Recommended Posts

Tbf signing players who have had injury problems in the past has finally started to really hit us. Dijksteel, Bola, Fry and Hall can’t be relied upon through a season, not to mention Bamba and Peltiers age. Makes it even funnier the fact we loaned out Coulson and Spence as well 😂

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

Bola injured during international break....You really couldnt make this stuff up could you?

Signs that players are downing tools maybe?
 

Our back 3 or 5 will be extremely interesting tomorrow.....

I'm guessing it'll have to be Howson - McNair - Bamba in a back 3, with Jones LWB and Tav right?

If it's true, there's clearly something very wrong with Warnocks methods of training and fitness, particular around Bola. We've rushed him back from injury twice this season to start games and were only 11 games in. Everyone on here was saying we hope we haven't rushed him back both times, how can we see the issue but he can't?

Some gall from Warnock framing it as an excuse for poor performances rather than it being indicative of poor management. Only Sporar, Payero and Siliki didn't get a pre season with us but you'd expect them to be up to speed by mid October.

It wasn't even like it was at the beginning, NW says Bola went down yesterday. So there's our weekly "late thursday/friday training injury" that we seem to be getting an awful lot of lately!

“It seems to be all defenders at the moment” manager Neil Warnock said. 

“Grant Hall and Dael Fry will be our for three or four weeks.

“Anfernee Dijksteel is out, Marc Bola went down yesterday, I can’t see either of them coming back before Cardiff.”

Surely you've got to give Kokolo a chance tomorrow now.

Not sure if he's ready, I've never watched him, but there's no point in even having him on the bench if you won't risk him against the bottom side in the league.

If only he didn't ship out two players who were considered full backs before he got his hands on them.

I'm guessing that both players had had enough of not being considered full-backs, Coulson did seem pretty desperate to go out and play from both his own and Warnock's comments, Spence has certainly shown how he feels since joining Forest too.

Warnock will say he was backed into a corner to allow them to leave and I'm sure Johns will back him on that like he does everything else. But this is born from his own attitude towards both players. He never wanted either and now he's been left in a situation where he needs them and doesn't have them. We should make no mistake here, this is Warnock's doing.

I assume he'll go bamba + mcnair at CB. After that, who knows.

Hope Kokolo can do himself justice if he gets an opportunity. Outside chance of Cain Sykes in at RB if things are really desperate.

I suspect either Kokolo comes in with Howson at right-back or Howson to centre-back with Jones/Kokolo at wing-back and Tav on the other side.

I thought Cain Sykes was a CM? Didn't Warnock like Dan Dodds for RB, what's happened to him? Maybe even a place on the bench for Gitau?

I am sure he thought he had enough cover on the right with Djik, Peltier and Howson.

It’s baffling decision on the left especially in light of Bola’s fitness record and not bringing anybody in. I can only assume that this is a higher up decision no manager would leave themselves with 1 left back.

Hopefully this is a chance for one of the young lads to shine.

I don't think it's beyond the realms of possibility we don't win this game but the fact of the matter is we should and I think we will, such is the gap in quality between our two sides that not even Neil Warnock right now could bugger this up. We could turn up and not bother for 90 minutes and still stand a good chance of winning this game. No intended disrespect to Peterborough but I can't imagine their fans right now are going into games like this with anything but hope that they can beat the odds.

It's worth pointing out just how big the gap in quality is between these two sides because if we do win, that's just matching expectations, it's nothing worth shouting about. We move onto the next game with very little having changed. Anything but a win is pretty catastrophic. Teams looking to get promoted don't drop the points that we do and these next 2 games should really be 6 in the bag with a bit of momentum heading to Cardiff.

We thought the same about Hull 😬

And now sounds like we'll need to pick some fans to play in defence.

    • So important.  Wilder totally justified in his comments about Crooks being first choice and Payero having that as a barrier.  But the importance of team spirit and bond will be crucial.  Injuries/suspensions will likely come into play and feel for the first time in a while we are trying to ensure we have cover in all areas of the pitch that have the attributes we highlight as being required for them. 
    • I wouldn't equate the difference between our combined abilities from season start to end, within our club from the top down, to being like they were on performance enhancing drugs compared to us. They cheated but I don't think that suddenly made them or their squad in any way better than ours. That summer window was quite possibly the worst we've seen since relegation, too. There is so much about that year that fills me with dread to think about because we handled it so badly from start to end. Derby spending beyond their means didn't, or perhaps shouldn't have, affected us anywhere near as much as we seem to claim it has.
    • Clearly Payero does feel involved and that bodes so well, even Paddy went up to him. Real bond developing it seems
    • Not sure I agree with that. If it was a race and we were leading Derby until the final lap and then tripped over our own shoelaces, and that that's the only reason they finished ahead of us, obviously it's our fault that we didn't beat them. But if it then turned out that Derby were on performance enhancing drugs they'd have been disqualified even though it was ultimately our own actions that cost us the race. Obviously their massive coordinated cheating of FFP would be the performance enhancing drugs.   Pulis *** up massively to cost us a play-off spot that looked assured, but the only team that was even close to us outside of the top 5 was a Derby side that cheated consistently. Even after our 6 defeats in a row, the team in 8th finished 3 points behind us, the team in 9th was 7 points behind.
    • 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'.
