      4
    • Hull win - oh well, at least we can concentrate on the league now
      11

Interesting team. Not our strongest, but will give Karanka an opportunity to check out L. Williams (and R. Williams at centre back) in a relatively low pressure environment.

 

Hoping for a win but I'd rather we were knocked out than taken to a replay.

Why?

 

Why would I rather we were knocked out than taken to a replay? Because I would rather we moved further up the league and made a push for the play-offs than had a mini cup run, and I think having a midweek replay would be detrimental to that.

It should not as it is a FA Cup tie and the right to transmission are not the same I believe.

 

What is the full bench anyone?

I'm not happy.

 

I was under the impression we were taking the cup seriously and would be fielding our strongest team.

 

I think keeping the winning (or not losing) mentality is important, as us keeping our strongest 11 getting more games together.

 

Dimi - Strongest available

Varga - Strongest available

Gibson - First Team

R.Williams - Opportunity to impress

Friend - Strongest available

Leadbitter - Strongest available

Whitehead - Strongest available

Ledesma - Strongest available

Emnes - First team and arguable strongest available

L.Williams - Opportunity to impress

Main - In and around first team all season.

 

Not sure how much stronger you wanted the team to be? Only Woodgate, Adomah and Juke missing that would make it our strongest available XI.

So is Boro+ gonna be on or not? It'll be a disaster if they leave it on just tees, a lot of our non-UK friends pay good money for Boro+ for all games... i've got no commentary yet.

Its the FA cup not some mickey mouse competition, nobody wants to be knocked out. Also its only January not really a crunch time of the season for a fixture pile up, just wish for a win the same as all boro fans and if its a draw we`ll beat them down there. Come On Boro....

    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees. 
    • Imagine complaining that you earned enough to invest into things like property so you can't afford to lose a quid of your huge wages. The poor sods. Must be awful having to downgrade your car or house to a smaller one when something doesn't work out as planned.
