Good win today, wasn't pretty but a win when not playing well is a good sign.

 

Excellent save by given at the end though, as was flying in the net, pity the bbc didn't feel the need to show it though! I did like the way they tried to make out though that charlton where unlucky and denied a "goal" though...brilliance in media that is!

Onto next week and a big game that should be a marker for where we are at, a win and anything is possible.

 

Still would like to see a striker brought in though, and hopefully get adomah fit for next week too

I think I'll choose to agree with Karanka who has started him virtually every game since arriving and with other teams fans who see him as one of our dangerous players.

 

 

So you'd choose to agree with people who hardly see him play because it matches your own point of view but disagree with those that see him week in, week out because they don't? Interesting.

 

Karanka has already dropped him a few times actually. Karanka also brought him off when Steele was sent off at Leeds and seems to be taking him off after about an hour fairly regularly now. Maybe Karanka doesn't rate him all that highly but recognises that we don't really have anyone else that can play the same role?

 

Interesting that you would choose to disagree with qualified coaches who continue to pick him for games but will choose to agree with fans that know a lot less about football than the coaches because it matches your point of view.

 

I'll choose to agree with a coach that sees him day in day out and still picks him in the team almost every week. There is only 6 of our league games that he hasn't played in, does that not indicate to you that the coaches think that he is performing, others have said that we have other players who can play the position better than him, if that's the case then why aren't they?

 

So what about Strachen then? He's a qualified international manager who thought he's crap? I think its a bit unfair the way you direct your reply to suggest he sides with a less educated point of view to support his own while doing the same thing. Its like statistics, they can be made out to support both sides of the same argument.

 

There's no moral high ground, everyone is entitled to their own opinion :)

Agreed Chimpy!! Will often forgets that this is a forum and that his views aren't written in stone.

 

And as a forum I'm allowed to post my opinion and disagree with others. I can also safely say that I've never forgotten that this is a forum, but thanks for your fantastic input.

 

 

Strange that both of you missed CT doing exactly what I did to him in the post before mine.

 

CT:

Me:

...and for your's too Will...you need to learn to be accepting of other's views and to disagree respectfully....I disagree with your argument in this case fully, but respectfully.

Please quote where I have gone out of my way to upset anyone, or retract the statement because I'm quite offended by that accusation.

I was at the game today. Not a convincing performance but a great 3 points all the same. Not sure whether to look forward to / dread Leicester away next.

 

Welcome to the forum Joa_Boro! Long time lurker or transfer from another forum?

 

Hope to see you post again and join in with the members on line:)


Was surprised that no-one apart from Anglian Red made a comment on what I mentioned yesterday but I will repeat myself.

 

The win against Charlton was the first home league game that Boro have won in the month of January for the last 7 seasons.

 

That stat really stands out

    • Must admit im gutted  at the performance & result today but being optimistic in nature,im hoping the remaining games against mid table opposition might give the team the chance to get the neccessary points,Might be clutching at straws but hopefully the 'Benidorm Factor' will come into play against Millwall ,Reading,Qpr & Bristol City,
    • I think I'm of the same mindset, confidence booster against Stoke, Hull in shocking form, no nonsense manager who seems to find the way and  get the best out of the players, and I've  definitely had my bubble burst today. So can Warnock polish a turd we're about to find out. Prediction for Sunday, I haven't got one because I don't  bloody know what will turn up,
    • I agree with Fletch over Britt, but if we go with 1 striker I think we play right into QPR's hands they'll be happy with that given how poor we are in attack. 
    • I hope todays result proves a positive in weeks to come. I felt after stoke few different sections of those connected with club began to get carried away and thought safety was a formality. I certainly felt some of us fans did (myself included) as I was starting to even think lets become mathematically safe before Cardiff game so we can enjoy last 2 games with a peace of mind. There were also sections of media that thought safety was a formality with Warnock in charge. I cannot speak for the players as to what they thoughts are but if they thought "oh warnock is here, we simply need to turn up and give 6 out of 10 and we be fine" then hopefully this result will have woken them up to the reality of situation like it has the rest of us. I am still confident we can get the 8/9pts from the 6 remaining games we need but ultimately everyone connected with the club needs to realise we will need to work our absolute bo**ocks to get them 8/9 pts and stop thinking its a given.
    • Yeh well if your out of form and you need a confidence boost come to the Riverside satisfaction guaranteed. In all honesty this game has knocked the stuffing out of me, would have been disappointed with a draw before the game, but same old same old ,but  I should be used to this by now.
