Just watching highlights of Bodo v Roma..  what a night for those lads..  it is results like that which makes being a supporter of a "little" team worthwhile..  in 50 years time, they can say "I was there when"...  good for them

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

Made me think of our own trip to Roma!

 

Think that second half was the longest I've ever experienced. Felt like the clock was going backwards! Some great saves from Schwarzer kept us alive.

Not overly so, says he has a decent relationship but wants to play more and if it means a loan, then he is up for it. sometimes we tend to be a little hard on young players if they have a poor game but if he cracks on, whoever is here when he gets back may want to include him in squad...  still has a way to go and experience will do him good. If he can't deal with Scottish forwards, then he may not be as far along as we hope, but next year or two should see if he is going to make it and I think he will not be found wanting.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I'm sure Woods is kicking himself for making the decision to go out on loan.  With the injuries we have atm he would have slotted straight into the team and this would have been the chance he needed to be a permananent name on the teamsheet. Hopefully he will come back from Scotland with the experience because Pelts and Sol wont be around forever and we will certainly be looking at what we have before buying more defenders.

They have zero hope of staying up, they do it every season. They will come down again, keep most the squad, hoover up premier league money then likely win promotion again. Eventually the cycle will stop but can't see it happening anytime soon.

Derby drew again.

You're not gonna stay up by drawing, guys

It’s giving them a good chance though. Only 6 points off safety. They’d be in 15th if it wasn’t for the deduction so they are clearly doing much better than the bottom teams.

Woods needs to be playing games. At the moment it’s not working out for him in Scotland. I appreciate him trying to play at the highest level possible but think he might have been better playing league one football this season and getting 30+ games under his dealt

Gibson sent off for Norwich as they are thrashed 7-0 at Chelsea.

Think if they are to have any hope of staying up, Farke needs to go and they need to do some spending in January.

 

Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.

I know they are working to a particular business model, but it seems daft to not even have a go at staying up.

Financial prudence is important, but in the PL it needs to be balanced against having a competitive squad.

Maybe next time? 🤷‍♂️

Yeah I seen the challenge and it was challenge of sheer frustration. Going through back of someone like that near half way line. He regretted it as soon as he did it. 5 nil down at the time and situation got better of him. Should have known and done better there.

I didn't say they'd be successful... 🤷‍♂️

We tried and failed. Norwich look like they're happy to yo-yo between the PL and the Championship.

Plus Boro until very recently didn't do long-term planning. We just spent and hoped.

I was simply suggesting Norwich could try extending their ambitions a little further, without completely tearing up their business model. Also registering some surprise that their plan doesn't apparently allow for a serious attempt at staying up.

    • People do get reported and we decide the report needs no further action, if that's what you mean, yes. Different people get offended by different things, that's just human nature. If people do see and get offended by anti English comments and they don't get immediately picked up by Mods, then report them. That's what the button is there for. We are not "claiming" anything. The prior anti English comments that I am aware of came during the context of the Euros. While not ideal, there will always be some home nation bantering when it comes to football and while yes in hindsight some of them may have crossed over the "banter" line (which is a hard line to police, by the way), they have been apologised for, whether you want to believe that or not. The report happened to be about you - I don't know what you want me to say about that. You know full well you can be antagonistic and sometimes you tip toe the line and while usually you're good at staying on the right side of it, sometimes you fail. Would someone else have got the same punishment you did for the comments you made that day? Maybe not, but it's all contextual. You had two prior warnings for very similar offences so a step up was deemed appropriate. Other mods can comment on this if they want, but this is the last comment you will get from me on the matter.
    • All big games really.  We're in the hunt so the pressure is on!  Great to see.
    • This is the kind of thinking we need at this football club. Seriously though, if you're going to do stuff like this then it should be lots of players of the past, not just Ugo, although I get the reason for him being mentioned specifically.  Most players aren't going to get statues at the ground like Mannion, and Hardwick, it'd be nice to have something for lots of players, and a space for players in the future as well.
    • Give over mate.  You know what I'm talking about, you've seen it as others have.  At least one of the bloody mods was doing it as well.  Is this how it's going to be now, mods acting dumb when things get called out? Can I ask a question, is it possible in your opinion, that some people will end up being reported more than others, but that the reports might not have any real merit to them?  Genuine question.
    • The results today were pretty decent again. If we beat Blackburn on Monday then we're only 4 points behind 2nd placed Bournemouth, who are on poor form and have looked awful for the past two months. QPR are in great form at the moment so seem to be in with a shot of 2nd spot.
