Non-Boro Football


Recommended Posts

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Man Utd fans crying into their prawn sandwiches.

Man Utd 0 - 4 Liverpool (HT) 😮

This could be the end for Solskjaer (especially if it gets worse second half).

Wonder if they'll ask Fergie to come out of retirement?

I wonder if there will be some articles in the Manchester Evening News later on, explaining how it's not the manager's fault.

    • I thought we won some kind of award a few years ago?  Might have been medical rather than sports science, mind.
    • What a signing this lad is turning out to be.    
    • Honestly I might be totally naive but I've never heard of this until today, has it been reported in the press, or is it something you need to be ITK to be be aware of?   We've all criticised the club for recruitment as it has looked poor from the outside looking in but I wasn't aware of an amateurish sports science department. I'm not trying to have an argument I've just never heard this before. 
    • I'm not sure how relevant having access to information is quite honestly. What information do you think would change people's minds about homosexuality?  Is there any that could suddenly take someone from 'I hate it' to 'I think it's fine'?  I'm not so sure?  There's plenty of people in this country who don't like homosexuality, and as I said, it wasn't that long ago that it was illegal here.  As I also said, it is a religious thing.  Even in this country it was essentially illegal because the dominant religion here held that it was wrong.  The difference isn't that we are more enlightened, I think it's just that we are less religious, and this secularism, especially in newer generations, is what is removing the stigma attached to homosexuality.  I don't believe it is ignorance and it's too easy to label it as such.  They know exactly why they believe what they do. 
    • We've had 2 old school managers in quick succession, I'd guess some moved on due to lack of input.
