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 United have been trying to use Henderson when they can since Sheffield United last loaned him, don't think there was a plan for him to be loaned out.
    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there. 
    • Hartlepool, Harrogate, Newcastle or Leeds please. (Away)  
    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
