Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots postin

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

What we really need is someone to look at the fixtures for the teams around or below us and work out what the likely results would be so that we have some idea of just how many points are the minimum to aim for....I would do it myself but I am a lazy bugler (misprint)...I am beginning to think one win might see us safe but not totally sure

Even if there's nothing inherently wrong with borrowing the money (as far as I know, borrowing/lending happens all the time in business? I don't run a business though so someone please correct me) and there's nothing illegal with this incident (besides the valuation issue) it still goes to show the kind of person Mel Morris is choosing as his bed fellows.

The guy he loaned from is facing up to 15 years in prison for god sake.

Also Derby fans are really trying to convince themselves this is a big ball of nothing (which it might be). Even as far as to say "It may also back up the fair value of the sale price? Why would someone lend Mel £81m if it's only worth £60m...?"

Seems like a smart decision to me if it means he has 15 years to pay the loan back 🙂

Well here are the fixtures for all the teams I think are still in the fight.

Luton:
Huddersfield - A
QPR - H
Hull - A
Blackburn - H

Barnsley:
Wigan - H
Leeds - A
Notts Forest - H
Brentford - A

Hull:
Millwall - H
Wigan - A
Luton - H
Cardiff - A

Stoke:
Birmingham - H
Bristol City - A
Brentford - H
Notts Forest - A

Charlton:
Reading - H
Birmingham - A
Wigan - H
Leeds - A

Huddersfield:
Luton - H
Sheff Wed - A
WBA - H
Millwall - A

Middlesbrough:
Bristol City - H
Reading - A
Cardiff - H
Sheff Wed - A

Birmingham:
Stoke - A
Charlton - H
Preston - A
Derby - H

Sheff Wed:
QPR - A
Huddersfield - H
Fulham - A
Middlesbrough - H

Wigan:
Barnsley - A
Hull - H
Charlton - A
Fulham - H

 

Luton - Think they've got a good chance for at least 6 more points here
Barnsley - Not even convinced they pick up a point, and don't see them winning another game
Hull - Don't see them getting another win; although games against Wigan & Luton are huge lifelines for them.
Stoke - Need to beat Birmingham cause I'm not sure they can beat any of the other 3
Charlton - A good chance for 6 points at least, Reading & Birmingham. Wigan should beat them & Leeds should also
Huddersfield - A decent run in, wins against Luton & Wednesday would be enough
Middlesbrough - All arguably winnable but it really depends what Boro turn up. Have us down for 4 or 5 points
Birmingham - Again, next two games crucial because I don't see them beating Preston or Derby
Sheff Wed - All winnable games bar Fulham IMO.
Wigan - Easiest schedule of the lot, especially in their current form. Should beat Barnsley, Hull & Charlton & avoid the drop even with the 12 point deduction.

Just watching the Huddersfield v Luton game and still marvel on how infinitely better football shirts look without sponsors logos on them

Stoke look doomed with that fixture list.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which probably means they'll win all 4 and survive comfortably 

Birmingham are in awful form, as are Bristol City.

Could easily see Stoke getting 6 points there.

Watching Huddersfield Vs Luton it's absolutely 😴😴😴😴😴 they are worse at attacking than Boro 😂

Both sides really struggling to pass the ball, so many turn overs in dangerous areas, then instead of countering whilst they are out of position they check back into a deep lying CM, doesn't seem to be a tactical plan from either team atm.

    • A retired Shay Given gives us 15 more points than a season with Lumley
    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
