A little thank you


Recommended Posts

Feel a little strange posting this but just wanted to thank all the members for their contributions to the site.  Been struggling for the last 2 years. Often go to bed on a night wondering whether it would just be easier to stay asleep.  When i do wake up and try to pretend everything is ok and go to work as normal this forum is a genuine source of escape for me.  Thanks to all. #UTFB

Hi everyone, I am fine. I’m sorry for the message last night being poorly worded.  In the daylight of morning i can see how it might have been misleading. i was only trying to say i need to

@Youngy228first of all, very brave of you to speak up on here. Many wouldn't. As most of you know, I like so many have had a tough couple of years myself, and, with social contact limited, it's b

A lot of Boro fans have felt like that over the past 2 years 😉

Day by day mate, just go day by day, enjoying what you can from each day, and looking forward to what you can about the following one 👍

Mate keep fighting. Sometimes life smacks us in the face…things seem impossible, but they aren’t. If there is anything I can do to help or if you just need to talk, please dm me. 
 

I’ve not contributed much over the last year, I’ve been through the mill, but I still check out this forum every day and I agree, it’s cathartic and there is a real sense of community.

Life's a lot like supporting Boro, it's not easy and indeed is often painful and difficult and you wonder why you bother sometimes. The hard times don't last forever (1986), there are cup runs and promotions interspersed with those relegations and Pulis ball.

Every so often along comes a Charlton, a Rioch, a Robson or a Karanka and life suddenly seems a lot better. Granted those good times don't last but neither do the bad ones and before you know it they are all consigned to the past. Better things do come along and like Boro there will be a Wilder effect soon and usually when you least expect it. 

Massive respect to you for coming on here and putting it out there!

Kind words there BWS and as everyone else says we are all here to contact if you feel there are certain members you would like to bouce off so to speak. A good kind person would be @Uwe solid chap and worth talking to.

After reading your op realise how petty so many of us are at times and how poorly we often interact with other forum members, I for one will try and improve that aspect

@Youngy228 While  you’re posting in your toilet/bedroom/lounge etc it’s easy to feel alone. Believe me when I say that’s not the case you are important and would be missed by so many people. Stay strong King 💪 

@BillyWoofs_shinpad & @Youngy228 I honestly believe we are social creatures and benefit greatly from actual human interaction face to face. I’m up Boro for the Coventry game would love to meet for a beer/coffee//food just to put the human element into this forum. The offer stands for all of this forum just drop me a line👍

This board puts me to sleep sometimes @Youngy228 but different strokes for different folks 😉

Glad it’s been a source of comfort to you. There’s always an open invitation to private message me if you want to have a bitch about some of the divvys on here…or anything else of course 👍🏻

For what its worth, you're not the only one. I'm sure there are some other folks on here in similar positions and I know for a fact there are many across the country who are also struggling. God knows I have days where I wonder why I bother (with anything).

You are a great contributor to the forum and you've been brilliant at organising the Predictions League. This forum would definitely be a poorer place without you.

Would like to echo the offer some others have made. If you ever feel like you need to get something off your chest, feel free to DM me. A problem shared is a problem halved (or so they say).

@Youngy228you are a valuable contributer to the group, so take comfort that other ppl enjoy reading your views too. We all have these days and like others have said, take each day as it comes, and it can sometimes be all about small wins. Take care buddy.

You are a big part of this community mate! You aren't alone in any of this so keep your head up, take things one day at a time and take every little small win and build off of that. 

Feel free to PM me too and always remember that we value you and your contributions!

    • imo, anyone who criticises Marcus T either doesn't see us playing very often or doesn't have a particularly good understanding of the game. Not meaning to sound harsh, but his contribution to the team is very clear to see. He's not perfect by any means, but then not many players are, especially at this level. If you're just simply looking for players to criticise then there are usually about 8 or 9 players you should start with before Mr T each game  
    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view
