Good thread ar ..... We were shocking againt millwall no fight. This team should be fighting for the future just hope to see a big improvement if we get beat and we run ourselves into the ground can accept that but what we seen against millwall was unacceptable

Ok I know that Reading still have problems with injuries and suspensions I believe but with all this talk about giving fringe/untested players a run out for the game are we not in a way doing a disservice to all the other teams close to Reading by possibly giving Reading an advantage.

 

Whilst we have regular first team available are we not duty bound to field the best team possible and deal with this game as any other in trying to either win or not lose the match?

 

Just a thought because I would feel mildly miffed if the boot was on the other foot

 

Completely agree with this.

 

Plus there have been howls of protest from teams / managers in the past, that have attracted media attention, when they've felt other teams have been given an unduly easy ride by opponents "resting" players.

 

Not saying we shouldn't try 1 or 2 youngsters, but no more than that.

I thought there was a rule/law in place that we had to field our strongest or most competitive team. I know mick McCarthy got fined a couple of seasons ago for playing a much weakened side away to Man UTD. (Probably have gotten away with it this season:)) but also my money is not worth any less and if I'm forking out I still what to see Boro be competitive. However 2 young guns would be acceptable tho

First of all, brilliant thread and one that covers all the bases! For me, I think this game can be one we can throw cosh into the wind and grab the game by the scruff of the neck, take the game to Reading. Even though we won four games on the bounce before the Millwall shambles, I felt that we were extremely lucky on a number of occasions and since we've got nothing to lose as such, why not try and impose ourselves a little.

 

Along with this, Since we've been struggling at LB for cover give that kid, Atkinson is it? a go and see what he can bring to the table ahead of the Karanka remodel when the season draws to close!

As local as this game in to me its not worth the £40 ticket price for me and little un plus travel etc. Saving our money for the Barnsley game on Saturday and the Players Sponsors dinner on Sunday!

Most likely we'll win our last 3 and miss the playoffs by 2 points where people will once again argue whether it was Karanka's or Mowbray's fault. References will be made to Darius Henderson's handball goal and butters' goal that wasn't. This will be firmly dismissed by the Karanka's fault crowd who will claim our failure to achieve playoffs is hinged on a long non - scoring run. The Mowbray's fault camp will reject this idea and blame our leaky defence and poor form under mowbray. Chaos will ensue as people angrily type at each other with caps lock firmly on and the bickering won't relent until we sign a player or have something to discuss.

 

Watch this space :p

This game has just become some uninteresting with the terrible loss agaisnt Milwall. At least there is a nice Champions League game on. I will probably still be following the boro score tonight, but thats just out of love...

Time to give Steele a chance to prove himself?

 

Karanka has given everyone else a chance in a match situation except him.

I wish...but no chance AK won't drop Dimi, if he does, it'll be to bring back the Spaniard.

Time to make some changes, within reason. Got to keep it fair with regards to other teams and the promotion race, but we also have to be a little bit selfish to some extent.

    • 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.
