Don't like that change

 

Aphex,

 

Can I say a big, genuine thank you for putting the Twitch up almost every game this season, it has made so much difference to the way I follow the Boro when I can't get there.

 

You're an absolute star!

 

Oh and we're top of the league! Get In!!!

 

No problem at all mate.

 

That was ridiculous tonight, I nearly had about 4 heart attacks

 

I felt stupidly calm, even when Gibbo put the ball in his own net.

 

Like everyone I had qualms about the formation and number of changes, and it will be worth it when we knock out ***nal's second string on Sunday, but the players did not let us down tonight.

 

16 cup finals until promotion!

two cracking headers. The Kike one was a lot harder than it sounded on commentary.

 

Blackpool may be bottom of the league but don't lose many at home. A great result and great to see us proudly on top of the league

Well we got away with it a bit tonight in my opinion but a win is a win and we won whilst others didn't so that's what matters. However, I really don't think we're good enough to be ***ing about with the team too much. Let's hope Ayala's injury isn't too bad.

 

We still need to up our performance levels and it's becoming apparent that our once seemingly impregnable defence is not quite so unbeatable as it has been. Positive is that players are seemingly fighting for everything and that's a useful quality to have as we head into the final third of the season.

I agree.. When I saw it on SSN it was a brilliant header because from that close a range to get it up and down was brilliant...

I know what you mean mate. I couldn't follow tonight's match. I'll be 64 next month and I hope to be still 64 when Boro get promoted. Sometimes I just get up and do anything else - go outside, smoke a fag, make myself a tequila sunrise, read the paper - anything to get away from the match. And then it drags me back. 

But if we were mid-table....would I care as much? Probably. 

Karanka is going to take us up.

The main thing now is to make a little gap and let Bournemouth and Derby get sucked into the pressure of hanging onto an auto spot. It's this time of the season when it seems nobody wants to win the league and everybody starts dropping weird points all over the shop. Need to keep the momentum and belief going.

I hope the Ayala injury is minor and it was a precaution to come off... We need him.

 

Completely agree! He is the best defender in the league.

 

Next up in the league a tricky trip to Birmingham and then Leeds who seem to be on the up! There aren't going to be any easy games!

    • I was much happier with Boro's performance but the defence looked brittle to non existent against a struggling side.
    • Do hope his training ground nickname is Willy Kok or I'll have lost all respect for our lads.
    • Scene 1: Int (Night) [It’s 3am in a kitchen lit by the glow of the moon. Neil Warnock walks in yawning, wearing Paddington Bear pyjamas and fluffy slippers. He opens the fridge and takes out a bottle of milk. When he shuts the door, a ghostly white apparition has appeared behind it] WARNOCK [dropping the milk]: Jesus Christ! APPARITION: Not quite. [The ghostly white features move closer] No use crying over it, though, eh? WARNOCK: G…Garry? APPARITION: Yes. It is me. Garry. WARNOCK [looking around wildly]: How the hell did you get into my kitchen? MONK: I go wherever I want, and nobody ever seems to stop me. I find it quite peculiar. Middlesbrough…Birmingham…Sheffield Wednesday…Sky…I have the ability to slither in without invitation and then hang around until the scales fall off people’s eyes and they see me for what I really am. WARNOCK [composing himself]: So why are you in my house, Friar Took-all-the-money? MONK: I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed watching the Rotherham game on Wednesday. WARNOCK: I bloody didn’t. I had to fill the bench with kids. They had an average age of 11. MONK: No, I didn’t enjoy watching Middlesbrough. I enjoyed watching Rotherham. I get a certain pleasure from watching teams getting relegated. I mean, I get a lot of pleasure. It gives me a semi-final feeling. WARNOCK: Well, you certainly gave relegation a good go with my lot. MONK: I did my best, but my plan didn’t work at Middlesbrough. I was hoping to bankrupt them, but Mr Gibson found a Post-It note with my calculations of how many strikers I needed to buy to guarantee liquidation. He made me leave before I could finish the job. I did hope Tony Bent would finish what I started, but he spent all the money on defenders so they ended up drawing every game 0-0. Even the village idiot couldn’t find his way to League One. And then you came along with your mid-table mediocrity. [Hisses] You hero. WARNOCK: Hero? We’re tenth. And we’re bloody broke, thanks to you. I only found Watmore cos he was working in the local Sainsbury's garage when I went to fill up the Montego. His signing-on fee was a Big Mac meal cos he hadn’t eaten for three days. MONK: You’re still not going to be relegated, though. Such a disappointment. But my greatest project is Sheffield Wednesday. I've really put them through it, haven't I? Oh, that's managers for you; they always know which buttons to press. WARNOCK: The self-destruct one in your case. I still can’t believe what a shambles you made of that transfer kitty. I’m having to let Fletcher and Assombalonga leave for free cos we can’t afford to pay them any more. We've even prised all the 50p pieces out of the electricity meter, and it's still not enough. MONK [runs his tongue over his teeth]: I did my best. In the end, I couldn’t get Boro relegated, but I sowed the seeds of the club's decline. They'd be established in the Premier League if I hadn't buggered up the finances so much. Which means you'd be a Premier League manager, instead of a Championship one again. It was all me, Neil. It’s always been me. The author of all your pain. Scene 2: Int (Night) [The Warnock marital bed. Mrs W is wearing a Bri-Nylon nightie and an eye mask, sitting up as her husband rolls around screaming] MRS W [shaking Warnock awake]: Neil? Neil? Wake up! WARNOCK [trembling]: Oh God, that was awful. MRS W: The James Bond dream again? WARNOCK: Yes. But this time, the baddy was a snake. MRS W [calmly]: Oh, it was Monk this time, was it? You really need to stop eating Stilton before bed. You know it gives you nightmares. WARNOCK [rubbing eyes]: I'll give you nightmares. Have you seen my injury list? [Ends]   Match details: It’s a 3pm kick-off on Saturday, at ‘fortress’ Riverside.   Form guide: We’re mired in mid-table mediocrity, but Wednesday may be about to follow Boro’s example of being relegated due to a points deduction. At least their descent will be less high-profile than their near neighbours United, who are about to follow Boro’s example of being relegated with less than 30 points.   View from the other side: No MDT from the familiar-looking Owlstalk forum yet, but there is a thread called “Colin loves us really”, which is worth a read.   Questions for the audience: 1.       Who makes your starting XI? 2.       Given Connor Malley’s man-of-the-match debut, which other youngsters would you like to see in the squad/team? 3.       If you could only choose one, would you prefer to see Wednesday or Derby go down?
