Guest Changing Times

Persoanlly I dont have a problem with the money on Forshaw, he is a quality player to step in when you need him. If it wasn't for his injury we would have seen a lot more of him this season. If you want quality back up your got to pay the premium.

 

 

I doubt we'd have seen much more of him than we have really.  Other than injury issues or suspensions or possible suspensions we rarely change Clayton and Leadbitter.  I don't think Karanka really fancies Forshaw at all so in that respect I would call it a waste of a transfer.  We should have brought someone in that pushed one of the current two out of the side or that the manager felt could be rotated in and out with them throughout the season.  It would have given us more options and removed the problem we have now as they'd almost certainly have fewer bookings and in any case we'd have someone to come in that has the manager's full confidence.  I don't believe that Forshaw does.

Agree with CT on Adomah btw. I think he might be back on the bench, but wouldn't expect him to start. I think it will be Sola of the attacking players who misses out this time.

I don't think that will be the team.  Clayton and Leadbitter will be in, I don't believe Adomah will play but you might get something different like de Pena on the left and Downing on the right.  If not it will be Stuani over there and either Downing or de Pena on the left.  At some point though Karanka has to give one selection of players the chance to get some games together because chopping and changing as well as adding new players doesn't strike me as the best way to get a team playing well.  So the question becomes what set of attacking players will give us the best chance of producing a winning team?

 

The bigger question however is why BoroTom has changed his name?  'Tom' lacks the gravitas of the old name and quite frankly it feels like you are ashamed of the Boro part of it.  As a result I no longer have the respect for you that I used to have.  **** **** **

 

The biggest shock there is that you ever had any respect for me.

I just found there were far too many B usernames, and it was much harder for me to locate my own posts, which are, frankly, the only ones worth reading.

 

He was just following in the footsteps of all the other great 'one name' posters on here ;)

Good OP Red Rocket, nice one! Anyone know of any decent parking? Preferably where my car is unlikely to get stolen/keyed?

 

If you want to come back to a car I would park at Wetherby and walk the rest of the way ;)

I reckon the players will be more up for this game than the last two and that'll well get a hard fought win. They seem to play better in the big/feisty games.

 

I'd play

 

------------dimi------------

-Nsue--kalas--gibbo--delaet-

----leadbitter--clayton-----

--stuani--ramirez--downing--

-----------rhodes-----------

 

Looks a he'll of a team on paper. Rhodes might not be the most talented all round footballer, but I believe he'll put away any half-chances that we create for him. Been a long time since I've thought that about a striker!

 

2-1 Boro, rhodes to get both ours.

I've got a horrible feeling that Karanka will carry on being a bit weird, and not starting Rhodes. I hope not though.

 

Given our recent run, I can't see beyond a Leeds win I'm afraid.

 

Heresy I know.... but 3-0 Leeds.

 

Surely a comment like that is worth an instant ban.  :dodgy: :P

Rhodes has got one hell of a record in a Boro shirt. Less than 40 minutes of football and he's already scored a goal. If he keeps going at this rate he's guaranteed to bag 2 at Leeds and 34 between now and the end of the season. ;)

Gaston will be our key player on Monday.

 

Leeds cb's really struggle with movement. We should approach this game with the mentality of scoring in the first few minutes, do that and the crowd will turn and we can play counter attacking football that suits us.

 

Another 3-0 win with Gaston double and Rhodes

I've been confident for Blackburn and Dons, and we've been shocking.

I'm not too confident with this one, so hopefully that means we'll win!

 

We're a better team than Leeds, but usually struggle (3-0 this season aside). Tough place to go.

I'm going to this one so would love to see us give em a good hammering!

    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison

    • you glory hunter! if the JC Arena is 20km from you, then other clubs aren't that far off. PSV was my closest stadium (less than 1km), now, it's technically Utrecht, as I moved to Breukelen
