Can I give a massive thank you for everyone who has contributed to the thread and especially last night!

 

We had over 250+ semi active viewers on line and over 70 signed in members during most of the game.

 

The post count probably would have been a lot higher had the forum not imploded which was a pity as it took away some of the excitement in the last crazy minutes and I have asked rob if anything can be done to stop this from happening again.

 

Well done again to CBB for his continuing run he certainly goes into the record books!

 

Oh and if anyone predicted the correct score and first Boro scorer please let me know though I guess the timing was not anticipated (in the event of a tie)

 

Actually I do not think we have a winner for the Brucie bonus but if so please refer to original post number

For anyone who has any niggling doubts about last night's game, just think "Would I have taken a scrappy 1-0 before kick off?"

 

Then replace 1-0 with 2-1 :D

There was only one disappointment from last night and that was the injury to Ayala, Hopefully he is ok and the players were instructed before the game if you have any niggles on that pitch come straight off its not worth the risk...

 

We won all 3 points and that's what matters.. It was always going to be a scrappy game, We showed versatility and that is a plus..

 

UTB.

I predicted a 2-0 with Woody scoring the second.. Close but no cigar..

 

Thought Bamford would have come off the bench after a poor first half and get one after 63 mins

 

At least I got our number of goals right and one of our scorers

I had a strong feeling yesterday we had to win this match while listening to Boro + (for obvious reasons).

0-0 I cannot listen anymore, I cut Boro + , but  can't help  myself to log in again and listen. I had miss Woodgate goal. Then the own goal! I cut Boro +. Again I log in and I missed Kike goal.

 

Huge win. UTB!

Must admit the longer the game went on the less likely I could see us winning, thought typical Boro, chance to go top and blow it.

 

BUT that's the old Boro, welcome the new Boro, fight to the end, win when not playing well, tough, hard working with no half measure of skill.

 

Shouldn't have doubted but did - Karanka is a master tactitian, roll on Birmingham (***nal is just a game in the way for me), lets get some of the Sky monies and make Boro one of the top 30 richest clubs in World football.

Just back from the game, poor performance but our most important win of the season IMO. Pitch made it like a sunday league game, no picture can do justice for how bad it actually was, feel sorry for any Blackpool fan having to watch that football every week. Looked solid throughout just struggled to create anything. Was so pleased to see Woodgate score. Cant really fault anyone apart from Reach who was really poor tonight.

 

Also are those who were massively criticising Kike a few weeks ago feeling pretty daft yet? Quality yet again tonight

 

Do you feel daft for criticising Tomlin? 

 

Happy we won. 

Dont remember criticising Tomlin

 

 

he made a huge difference last night too, great to see him in this sort of form

Excellent win under the circumstances. The pitch is one hell of a leveler and was never gone allow us to get any real control of the game and make this an easy match. Add to that Blackpool are fighting for their lives and we made several changes, then this was brilliant win and indeed had real potential to be a banana skin.

 

So please Kike got his goal he has deserved it, he has worked his socks off, got in good positions but his luck wasn't with him and also it got Gibson out of the ****

    • I'm rather excited to see todays starting 11. It'd be rather refreshing to see him 'mix it up' a bit, by throwing in a few of the young lads to see how they deal with the championship. Not just todays game, but the remaining fixtures. At least then NW gives himself a more clear indication if they need loan time elsewhere or if they can make it next season, amongst the starting 11. Gives us less to do in the transfer market, and may help us steer from throwing money about wastefully.
    • This is hardly encouraging considering we are going to need two “Striker wise, we’ve probably been looking for 12 months – and we’re still no nearer getting one.”
    • I think there's a clause in his contract that states he's to blame for every goal we concede...even if he isn't playing. Apart from the ones that are obviously Bettinelli's fault. 😉  
    • Good point - probably the year after then. God its like discussing how much longer Warnock is going to go on for, isn't it? 😁   Fair point. A big part of longevity and how long you maintain your physical fitness, mental faculties etc. is down to how active you are and how you exercise the grey matter. She should probably start doing a couple of laps of Sandringham every morning, Captain Tom style. Followed by a leisurely afternoon of sudoku, then an intense evening session of Call of Duty. 😉
