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

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

Here's an even better question but it's quite a long one.  Why did we sign Bamford and Gestede for a manager that didn't want them at the time, then 6 months later, appoint a different manager wh

Karanka's finally been sacked.

Shame it didn't work out for him, but Birmingham was always going to be a poisoned chalice.

Wasn't a big fan of Karanka's in the end, but its a pity he hadn't come on this forum before accepting the Birmingham job, he would have been advised to run a mile, not even Merlin, Harry Potter or Gandolf would  be able to do a decent job there.

Filthy.

That's a goal worth the admission fee by itself.

 

Delicious...... that’s the word to describe that

Sadly inevitable after the season they've had.

Hope he returns to Spain to rebuild his career. Think he'll be able to make a better go of it on home soil, with players who speak his language and are more used to the style of play he prefers.

Seems like he maybe more needs to reinvent himself a bit and yeah, maybe back in more familiar territory could help him.

Having said that, I don't think Birmingham has been a good club for any manager in recent years. He even seemed to be making decent progress at Forest and I don't think everyone was really happy when he left, the way Brum fans might be today at least.

    • Spains second half vs Sweden and quite a large portion of the game vs Poland they had all of the ball but did almost nothing with it. To me, they don't pass the eye test and I expect them to get knocked out pretty quickly (if they even make it through). They can't seem to finish, they spend all their time passing the ball sideways and their defence is incredibly suspect.
    • Huh huh, huh huh... You said Onlyfans .. huh huh ...  
    • I'm pretty sure too. If any coach / manager openly talked about throwing a game, one Tweet would be all it took to cause a huge scandal and put that person out of a job. But a canny one might pick a certain team and tactics that would guarantee they'd struggle. The players might think something was a bit funny...but there would be no proof of any shenanigans. 😉   In England's case though, I have to say Southgate strikes me as too honest a person. I'm sure he has way too much integrity to even consider something like that. But his cautious nature, team selections and tactics could end up having the same result. 🤷‍♂️  
    • Exactly... and even if we do draw and get an 'easy game' in the next round, there's  no guarantee we win it going in on poor form. Plus we would only have to play a strong team in the following round anyway, with Italy Belgium and whoever wins France's group on that side of the draw. You can't hide from the best sides for long in the Euros. Tonight's all about a good performance and getting the fans back on side for a home tie in the next round. It's guaranteed to be a tough game but we might as well fly home now if people are too scared to play Germany in a one off game. 
    • England need momentum and fast. Winning convincingly breeds that.    I’m pretty sure it’s only fans that discuss trying to plot an easier route through a tournament by throwing games. It’s a sure fire way for players to lose their confidence in their manager. a win is the only good result for England tonight.
