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!

We'll win this in typical boro fashion ,which will then just lead to the "if only...millwall" etc comments!

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.

    • Hi all, just after a bit of help. I'm trying to reset my laptop. It is a fair few years old now and has been through the ringer, a fair few times it has hit the wall and I have managed to fix it by myself, but this one seems beyond my capabilities.  This issue has been going on a while but I'm only just getting round to it since I finally have some free time. When I turn my laptop on, It makes the noise as if it is loading, but I just get a black screen (it is still backlit but nothing ever appears). I have tried the Novo one button reset, which actually brought up a screen for the first time in lord knows how long.  However, no matter what option I choose, it then goes back to a black screen.    Anybody with any ideas at all on how to fix it or what's wrong? I was using it as a media server for Plex before it left so there were a lot of files on there that may have corrupted if that helps diagnose it at all?   Thanks in advance
    • Gazette seem to be suggesting club and JW want him to stay given his influence around the place. I should have added the above post was not my own prediction of who will stay or go but more what Gazette are seemingly suggesting. 
    • The police struggle with their duties during a short spike in crime on a regular day. That, along with the government's long desire to portray the changing face of crime and how we increasingly need to change to fight more digital crime, is going to be a factor in how many coppers we have on the streets to enforce these things. The government has now been forced to accept that enforcement may be needed to keep people indoors, which goes drastically against their ideal distribution of officers. Going significantly against their ideal setup is becoming quite a theme during this pandemic. As I said earlier, this doesn't mean higher levels of lockdown are on the way, what it may mean is that higher levels of enforcement will be dispatched in order to enforce the current lockdown procedures.
    • Why would we want Friend to stay, He was a brilliant player, now he cannot play three games on the spin. 
    • Just catching up on some Gazette articles and it seems picture with the out of contract players is become a bit clearer if Gazette are to be believed Set to stay: Howson & Friend Club want to stay: Ayala Set to leave: Shotton Clayton Johnson & Rudy I think Ayala staying really is 50/50 at moment.
