'Other Boro stuff'

Sun Sports is saying Calum Kavanagh  has signed a new three year deal, despite Arsenal trying to get him to move. Sounds like a real prospect. Be nice if we could actually get a real hot shot striker from our Academy for once.

I've gone on about him before on here but I really do think he could be the real deal. 

A lot of strikers who shine at u18/u23 level do so because of physical attributes. You often see strikers who are big for their age dominate at this level before being found out when they move up.

Kavanagh isn't like that. Hes average build for his age and is often dwarfed by bulky cb's on opposite teams. 

Instead, he causes chaos with a great ability to press and harass defenders (he will often rob centre backs of possession in dangerous areas) and he has great striking instincts/positional awareness. 

 

I have no doubt he will score shedloads this season. Cant wait to see how he progresses.

Fair play @Smogzilla you have indeed talked about him for a few seasons now. I really hope you are spot on 👍

I dunno, I'm on Strachan's side, I don't remember the game but he definitely did not stop that cross. 😬

I do remember the game, it was just before Xmas and it was on the box on a Sunday lunchtime.  Brad Jones flapping at crosses is a memory I have of that day.

There you go.  Unsurprisingly, the culprit was Justin Hoyte, although I think the person that Strachan feels is to blame was Julio Arca, who is in the general vicinity.  The goal is around the 2:35 mark, Jones didn't actually flap at the cross in fairness, he just kind of half came then went back.  Hoyte at left back, I can't think of anyone who would want to see that.

The next video is the home game later in the season featuring a lovely goal from Barry Robson, one of the few things that Strachan got right in his time here, and goal scoring hero Scott McDonald's first goal in a Boro shirt.  Barry Robson would be useful for us now, canny player.

am I right in saying Forest are starting with 9 new signings tonight?

Correct, although you could argue it's 8 due to the fact that Colback was there on loan last season.

Didn't realise they'd done so much business. Looking at their signings, I think every one of them would walk into our 11

I always confused Yates with Hoyte they really looked alike.

Their squad is well into the 30s now I think lol, they're going to have to really shift some deadwood and quickly I think.

    • Pulis will be off it now anyway, so there's a spot opened up.
    • I think it’s crap now but I’m struggling to think they changed the line up for diversity reasons (although it’s tricky to think of another reason that Clinton Morrison kept his role) Tim Sherwood, Tony Pulis are absolutely dreadful. If they did want quality presenters/pundits to add diversity I would’ve broke my neck to get any of Ian Wright, Micah Richards And moved Kammy in to the studio. Also I think Alex Scott is brilliant and would be great on the show
    • I've not watched it since our matches have been available for streaming, so I can't comment on the quality, but could it just be that it'll take them time to gel and get to grips with the job? The previous panel worked together for years and had a rapport based off that. This lot have had a few months. 
    • Does anyone else think Gillette Soccer Saturday/Special is absolutely crap these days? It feels like they've got rid of their experienced pundits in the interests of diversity, but the new team just aren't articulate and engaging enough to carry the show. Ironically, they've kept Merse, who was the only inarticulate member of the old studio panel...
    • Thank you! Thought they'd done away with it completely as I couldn't find any information about it on the Internet!
