Anyway, might be heading to this one as my girlfriend lives in Sheffield and she has expressed an interest in going (she's a keeper).

 

 

Sign her up.. We need all the help we can get now Shay's gone...

Wednesday will be very demotivated after their cuo defeat took the chance of a derby quarter final which they had been building themselves up for - so we really should snatch this one.

However if the game is a mind numbing as others recently can I recommend the Bere's Hot Pork Sandwiches which are sold from a stand in the away end which are as good a spot of food as you will get at any football ground - soaks the beer up great.

Do the Boro fans going to this game have a specific pub they go to prior to the game? Don't fancy mingling with the Wendies pre game!

How many tickets have we sold so far?

Over 1700 last I heard donny smog.

 

I will be going to this one with my Portuguese friend Goncalo and my beardy friend max. If anyone fancies meeting up pre match that'd be great.

 

Also I have 3 spare seats in my car coming down from near boro if anyone fancies a lift!

Excellent :). Lived in Sheffield for a little while for uni, but I never went down near t ' Wednesday stadium. I'll look up pubs nearby where we hopefully won't get pulled limb from limb :)

I hope you were Hallam MMC or we may have a problem!

 

No decent pubs round Hillsborough - i'd go into town and then tram it up.

Are you going to the game?

Nope...and to be honest I'm not that bothered.

What is your favourite colour?

I'm happy to say its RED!!!. Though I'm also partial to maroon, scarlet, crimson and burgundy.

 

What is the capital of Assyria?

Assur...according to Wikipedia.

 

What is the air/speed velocity of an unladen swallow? (specify African or European please)

According to a quite thorough response on Wiki Answers, all Swallows are capable of the same speeds of flight. Cruising speed is around 30-40km/h, while max. speed is around 50-60km/h.

 

What is a goal?

Its the Olde English term for prison...oh, wait, thats gaol.

 

Sorry..can't help you there... :(

 

Does Curtis Main have a fear of haircuts?

Possibly, but my theory is he's more afraid of the 80s band Haircut 100.

 

George Friend > Brad Pitt?

A close one, but I'll have to go for Gorgeous George as he has that approachable "boy next door" look, while Brad has too much of the "perfect Hollywood look" going on. :D

 

Is this too many questions?

Yes - now bugger off! :P

I have a stag do in Sheffield this weekend. But am kissing off the Go-Karting to go to the match (is that bad form?). But would be happy to meet up with any Boro supporters for pre match drinks :d

Always quicker to get to Hillsborough to go in from the A61 from the north of Sheffield rather than go through the centre. And just half a mile from the A61 turnoff is The Cock Inn at Birdwell which i always go to because it gets a lot of football supporters and because I have an infantile sense of humour and I like the name. Quick 10 minute drive from there to the north side of the ground where there is easy parking and no traffic. If you see a rotund man with a resigned attitude in there it will be me!

Birdwell is in Barnsley FFP no where near the city and the ale houses! Good name though... Devonshire Cat is in the centre though. I'll be coming in by train and will meet up anywhere.

 

Good work Uwe, karting should never come before a match when they are taking place in the same place.

I know where Birdwell is Donny - just at the A61 turnoff the M1 - if you follow the A61 from there and go through Grenoside you end up just to the north of the ground within 10 minutes in the car and miss all the traffic coming from the city. Trust me and try it!

No good if you don't have a designated driver mind you.

    • If we can afford Hughton we can afford Karanka. I don't care about the dangers of nostalgia, just give me that beautiful man back. 
    • Bola and Dijksteel are very raw but certainly have potential. Sorry for repeating this point for about the third time on here, but them two would massively benefit from a top quality coach who will drill them defensively - someone akin to Karanka. If the plan is to buying young talent and improve them, like we are led to believe, with good coaching and game time then having Woodgate as our manager completely undermines it.
    • 2-0 to us. Bounce back from the Leeds result (I hope).
    • Either way he was cack. Relegation season if I remember right (09)?
    • Sorry to leave you waiting, work has been a bit hectic. I've broken your points into 3 areas.  1. The point I'm trying (and failing) to make is that from Woodgate's original press conference it seems he has a preferred style that he would like to play. This style is his ultimate end goal, how he would like us to play. This is obviously not going to happen overnight, hence why we have spent the pre-season and first few games playing "his style". It is my opinon that this is laying the foundations for us to play this way. At the present moment in time I do not feel the squad can competently play this style and as such we have reverted back to a style that the players have a familiarity with, that they can play. When Jokanovic took over Fulham, I'd argue that the free flowing style they went up with was certainly not how they started playing under Jokanovic in his first 6 months in charge. But I'd almost guarantee that he was training the group of players he had certain elements of his preferred style.  2. I'm one of the first to acknowledge that we weren't going to be signing 10 players due to our financial constraints. But to answer your question I do feel that if we had got another couple of wide players in, we may have seen Woodgate persist with "his style". I do also feel however that to get to this end point in style it would take more than just the summer window and the upcoming window. By saying this about signings I'm not admitting that we would be a swash buckling side that would sweep all before them, but it would be seen as another piece of the puzzle to help us towards Woodgate's style. Again adding to the foundations that are slowly been knitted together, like the fact we played a certain way during pre-season and the first couple of games.  Basically what I'm trying to get across is that I feel we are aiming for a certain style of play and that we are adding bit by bit certain elements of this style. Whether it is the pressing element, like we saw in the Luton, Brentford, Hull and Bristol City games (in my opinion), interestingly we played a 4-3-3 in 3/4 of those games. Or whether it is by the need of having more squad depth to allow us to try and play a 4-3-3 on a more frequent basis. 3. I've kind of half answered this in the bit above. It is of my opinion that we would see a 4-3-3 a lot more often this season if we had signed another winger (or 2) in the summer. The fact that we didn't for me is a key reason in us playing a back 5 often. I also feel a big problem is our total lack of creativity in the team. I also do not feel that we are a player or 2 away from implementing Woodgate's system. Jokanovic signed 11 permanent players in his first full season at Fulham, I don't think we need quite as many but certainly there are key positions we need filling. A striker who will press, wingers/inside forwards, a play maker in the middle, a defensive midfielder and for me a centre half that is comfortable with the ball at their feet.
