Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today ūü§£ūü§£ūü§£

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

It was an accident for Christ’s sake. 

It was an avoidable one.

The less you go around kicking people in the head, the less likely you are to injure anyone.

Again...a good lesson to learn.

I’d agree with that, caution and penalty but not a 3 match ban or a red card, we’d be gutted if it was the other way round, imagine Fry had caught someone in the face by accident and been banned for 3 matches, our fans would be livid. 
 

We were pretty *** off when Adomah had his over head kick disallowed a few years back, imagine if he’d been sent off and banned as well. 

The rules literally determine  it was a red card.

The u18s were involved in a completely bonkers game at Rockliffe this morning against Leeds. Referee went off injured after 10 minutes and there was no extra official, so a coach from each team served as a lino in each half!

Boro lost 2 to injury in the first half and found themselves 2-0 down shortly after half time. They then managed to miss a penalty, before roaring back in a stunning goal frenzy to win 5-2!

My son was on a night out in Glasgow a while back, the usual question got asked (Rangers or Celtic?).

"Neither, I'm a Middlesbrough fan.", he replied.  The guy just looked at him and said,

"Oh mate, I'm sorry.".

During Woodgate's reign, so it was fair comment, TBH.

I was looking through the training pics earlier and noticed Dijksteel was involved but did not see him in any of the pics when it looked like a practice match was going on. Maybe just doing light training with an eye on Derby game.

Also did not spot Fry and Bola in any of the pics but everyone was present (bar kebano who i believe arrives tonight)

Different subject but Birmingham are now 3 point clear of the drop zone. Surely that's the end of the road for karanka. Doesn't seem to be able to achieve elsewhere.

Birmingham was never the right fit for him, but it does seem he can't recapture the magic he had here. Really hope he doesn't end up like Paul Jewell - worked miracles at Bradford and then totally failed to replicate the feat anywhere else (apart from moderate success at Wigan) before drifting into obscurity.

Maybe because we still have Leo? Always thought AK was missing a connection with the dressing room, he just doesn’t seem to have the personality to get people onside. Same with Monk.
I can just imagine them going through a PowerPoint with the team and everyone glazing over, bored stupid.

I think Aitor needs to change country. He's fast become a failure here and just another one of those in the pool of managers. If you didn't have any prior affiliation with him, would you feel comfortable if he was appointed at your club? I can't see any promotion chasing side taking that gamble so he needs to make it work at a struggling club like Birmingham. If he gets sacked at Brum he will find it hard to get an attractive job offer.

Needs a complete change of scenery, people tolerate dour football if your getting the results, not if your losing. that said some of the football in the playoff and promotion seasons was really good, he just seams to of lost his way.

    • Warnock was never going to be the long-term solution, with him in charge expect another mid-table finish next season at best. We'll be lucky not to finish in the bottom half this season, tbh.
    • I absolutely¬†knew that was coming yesterday when I saw he played the same players line up¬†aside from the keeper. From the parts of the game I¬†could stomach to watch and highlights after, the keeper seemed to do a solid job so he should defiantly get another game too see if he does the same again as actually he might be a okay backup keeper (as long as first one is Betenelli) for next season.¬† Question, can anyone justify or understand why he played Britt? surely he of played someone who would be here next season and ideally as the game didn't matter someone like Fletcher who needs to get his confidence back or Coburn you tell him to relax, go out their show me what you can do and see if you can get a goal to get us back in this. That way your evaluating your options for next season as well as giving yourself a chance as Britts not likely to be motivated to play for you.¬† Tell you what annoyed me most about that game however, why start out with 5 at the back? qpr don't usually do this but they set out to with an attacking formation because the game didn't matter we set out to what keep them out and try grab a goal?!¬†Warnock seriously why would you do that you may as well of attacked and given the fans an spectacle how good would have it been if the rest of the games this season we had given youth a chance and had a high scoring end to the season even if we conceded a lot as well. In my opinion you could have got a lot of fans back on side by doing that as they'd of been a good feeling around the club, instead of alienating fans like me who supported what he was doing in a large part this season and last season. Warnock in my opinion next 4 games you must reverse this decision if you setout too keep the position out in the next 4 and grind out an 1-0, not playing youth you are as bad as Pulis.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬†
    • When Johnson was playing pre Christmas he delivered to the best of his ability which was more effective than that which we have seen since January from his replacements. At the end of last season when his contract was up and others jumped ship he stayed and fought so I doubt Johnson is in a clique but¬†if he is,¬†it is only that which Warnock has created through his own actions.¬† Sadly for¬†Warnock those cliques he has talked about within the Club are now manifesting within the fanbase in terms of attitudes¬†and confidence in him. There were those who were totally against him from the off and those totally supportive of him with a few undecided which is often the case in¬†any newly appointed Manager. Now we have those who were against him having the ammunition to say "told you so", the undecided now joining them¬†as the¬†mess just keeps getting bigger week by week and those in the supportive camp now wavering or indeed fully shifting to wanting him gone in the summer. Groups of like minded individuals are not uncommon, its when they become destructive or disruptive at least in the minds of one party that they usually get labelled as "cliques". Footballers are flesh and blood like fans and they will inevitably have their doubts and their belief tested when things are going wrong so it is little surprise to hear that cliques exist, we¬†had it when Karanka was winning promotion and far worse followed in the Premiership. That said, how¬†on earth does an experienced Manager and Coaching staff allow a clique mentality to evolve in the first instance assuming there wasn't one already? There again how can an experienced Manager be so damning in his assessment of the playing staff and then pick several Players who have regularly underperformed and let the side down repeatedly? Putting Britt on yesterday is right up there with the most bizarre of Pulis decisions. It's hardly surprising that a clique (or as I suspect several) has evolved.
    • From what I have read elsewhere I believe there is an ¬£8M deal in place.
    • Until next game day ūü§™ūü§™ūü§™
