'Other Boro stuff'

Pulis on his time as Boro manager:

 

Raised £50m but how much of that did he waste on signings in positions we didn't need? How much did he get from the club personally as our highest paid manager, and a supposed cut of sales? Bonuses for hitting playoffs? How much did we miss out on by not even trying for promotion when we made said playoffs?

Talk of a tighter knit squad but only tighter in the sense that they all play in the middle of the park. Talk of trimming the squad but eliminating all the wide players and replacing them with more central players is not the way to go about it.

Half truths and PR spin. Would expect nothing less from that charlatan.

Coulson out for another 4-6 weeks.

Howson and Friend out for weeks yet too.

Ayala's fit and in contention.

That's a serious blow for Hayden 😞 Hope he comes back fit and firing on all cylinders and wins his spot back!

Nothing against him, but I'd not mind if he struggled to get his spot back.

It would mean Bola was actually playing well and was a solid signing.

For sure, and I think Woody has shown enough confidence in him that Bola will have to be playing really well to keep him out and I think from what I've seen of Coulson so far, it's justifiable.

The Times are reporting that Middlesbrough are going to sue the EFL over failing to enforce FFP properly with regards to stadium sales.

And what exactly are we suing them for? Sounds like Derby haven't broken any existing rules to achieve a higher position than us. To say they achieved 6th over us because of that £40m is also not just bull *** but we'll have a job proving that.

Even if we achieved 6th, so what? Will the EFL look back at last season and think 'well if they did finish 6th, they could have been in the Premier League now'? Surely not. Not one of our fans feels as aggrieved at our position as Gibson seems to be.

He's going on a sour rampage after wasting our money over the last 2 seasons on players who were not worth relatively what we paid for them and paying a manager a *** ton to do a job he was incapable of doing, who then came out to say achieving 7th was better than our previous league finish. The fact he's on this vendetta against everyone else seems to further prove he's not going to accept the mistakes he has made.

He'd do well to keep his gob shut and focus on winning back the support closer to home who are paying for cleaning up his mess. I've never seen so many fans question his running of the club to the point of wanting rid as I've seen this year, he should really acknowledge that before pointing fingers.

    • The Boro are unbeaten in the last 4 games & on the back of a 1-0 win at home to Reading travel to South Wales to take on recently relegated Cardiff City who sit below the Boro in the championship table on goal difference, there record is the same as the Boro’s so far, played 7, won 2, drew 3, lost 2 One of the bookies favourites to return to the PL Cardiff have found it anything but easy, they’ve had a busy summer in the transfer market bringing in up to 10 players, including our very own Aden Flint a big money transfer Cardiff are without a win in the last 3 games after starting the season with 2 wins & a draw from their opening 3 home fixtures, this will be another testing time for team  But its about the Boro, how Jonathan Woodgate sets us up, formation we play too, Luton & Bristol City away we played fast attacking football though & IMHO, a win was what we deserved, a draw is what we got in both games Will Woodgate to stick with the team that started against Reading?  Will Woodgate keep with Shotton, or bring in Ayala to partner Dael Fry?
