I think this will be a last chance saloon for the likes of Hines and Steele.

Speaking of an English Boro side; did anyone see this tweet the other day?

 

"Middlesbrough are the only team in the #U18PL to have 100% of their goals scored this season by English players."


Also, what happens if we win this? Do I get first match next season or do we reset?

Men, can we please take this to the chatty box. (I'm old now so not allowed to festivals it's making me jealous)

 

Hey, the mighty Quo are at Download this year, so unless you're too old for them, you're okay.

 

Saw the even mightier AC/DC a few years back. There is usually a decent "grey-hair" contingent at most of the ones I've been too, particularly on Sundays, when the classic bands are on.

 

 

You're NEVER too old to rock out! ;) :cool:

 

 

 

Anyhow, back on topic, if Karanka DOES decide to go with an experimental line-up, I really can't see us putting in a particularly strong performance. I suppsoe it'll be nice for the fringe / youth players to get a run-out, but we're not really going to learn much from one game that has nothing riding on it.

 

Sorry if I'm sounding grumpy here - its not intentional. Just trying to look at it realistically.

And Soni has Iron Maiden, Metallica, Alice in Chains.

 

Plus a ton of other bands that have been around for years.

 

Gary Numan for one (who I am very excited for, he was excellent in 2010)

Pfft Download.

 

SONISPHERE 4 LYF

 

I think Soni does have the edge over Download in that they stagger the start times on the 1st and 2nd stages, so you don't have to miss one band, in order to watch another. Only a little thing, but such a good idea.

 

Saw AIC there a couple of years ago - brilliant. Think it might've been the same year Metallica were there and James got custard / foam pied at the end of the gig, as it was his birthday.

Ahh, but it does invariably mean less bands, and if you don't like whoever is on then you're screwed


I remember House of Pain were on in 2011 and the majority of people sat through it all waiting for Jump Around because, well what else we're they going to do

Not necessarily. They have marquee stages where you can check out the smaller acts, or failing that, you can go to the fairground, browse the stalls, get someting to eat, or just take a break / sit down and have a natter.

 

You don't want to be standing / jumping around all day (well, I know I don't...don't have the stamina any more ;) )

Loads of people seem to forget that Soni has 3 smaller tents/stages as well as the two main ones, with acts on them ALL the time.

 

EDIT:

 

If any of you happen to end up at Soni this year, we should have a little OneBoro meet up, let me know!

All this talk is seriously making me consider leaving Thailand for another 6 months/ a year and getting festival tickets.

 

Even Leeds lineup looks good this year! If it wasn't the fact 90% of the crowd are tools.

Not on Thursday though, I am busy that day. Playing in the footy tournament and then going to a forum BBQ :D

I'd never do Leeds again, a good experience, but last year it should have simply been called KetFest. Everyone everywhere was on something and acting like a tool which spoiled it a bit. The line-up this year is very nice, but last year was as good as it was bad.

    • Sack all of em and bulldoze the ground.  Build something there that we can enjoy going to more, like a cemetery for example 😡
    • Got to agree given how many goals we've scored this season we're not good enough to play with only one forward, I  feel we should have started with Britt and Fletcher.
    • Yeah the crossing was abysmal - I think that the stats at the end of the game were 3 successful from 21.  Even ignoring the stats, there were just plenty of over hit crosses today. What would I have done differently?  I dunno.  I don't view the game in the same way as someone like Warnock does so you're probably asking the wrong person as I'd do just about everything differently!  I don't know if getting lots of crosses into the box is the right way to win a game, especially with the team we had out there.  Flooding the box and hoping that a ball bobbles one way or another seems kind of inefficient to me when you don't have much in the way of height but Warnock has made a career out of it, and he doesn't really have the time to put much else in place.  My instincts are always to get the ball down and play though. Before today, we'd only scored 39 goals this season.  The team that we started with had only scored 16 of those goals!  That's actually quite staggering when you think about it.  I'm not sure how meaningful that stuff is but I suppose it doesn't scream a team that will take lots of chances.  However, we were able to open Hull up time and again so it's not like we had no opportunities to make something happen.  We opened Hull up far more easily than we did Stoke last weekend, but today the final ball, cross or shot, was usually either poor or just the wrong decision.  I was talking about Wing earlier, and he was crap when he came on, but in a way it might have been the game to start him in.  Someone to pull the trigger within 25 yards of goal.  Maybe we could have started him instead of one of the three in midfield and given them something different to worry about.  Starting Tavernier could have been worth a shout as well as he looked about as lively as anyone last week when he came on.  He's obviously competing with Roberts for a spot though.
    • Our passing in the final third is shocking, and I find it criminal that our  players can over hit free kicks time and time again, and when we do get into a position to cross a ball we constantly hit the opposition player, I'm starting to wonder if they're all *** colour blind.   Johnson is just one of those players who's not very intelligent he just  can't help it, gave a stupid free kick away for the Hull goal then decided to try and do the same again, I hope Warnock realizes that the lads just a liability, I was also wondering if Johnson has any family from Hull because he's been an absolute god send for them in the 2 games against us. Roberts started well and then lost his way, skillful but over dribbles at times, Coulson was poor, Britt trying to hold a ball up just doesn't work, not strong enough, Wing did nothing when he came on, Tav had a go, thought McNair and Howson had average games, but I  thought losing Spence was a huge blow Hull were struggling to cope  with his pace. Well if Warnock thought it was a big job, he'll realize just how big now. Moukoudi  has got to play against QPR, Howson back at right back and I'd sooner have Aynsley Pears at left back than Johnson.
