Had it confirmed tonight that Ayala has been training since Monday.

 

Decent result tonight ;)

 

Does 4 days of training make him fit enough to start arguably our biggest game of the season? Given that he was apparently legitamately injured only the Friday before, according to his partner?

We looked so much better in defence tonight with Kalas in the team, he's a Klass act! And good to see Clayton back to his best. Is Leadbitter suspended for 2 games now?

I can't talk because my throat hurts. Screamed myself stupid at that goal, apologise for anyone watching on sky sports I had a mike in front of me. The performance doesn't matter. Massive three points. Nugent is my King. Karanka is my God. I ***ing love Middlesbrough FC.

The game was never going to be a classic so I'm not surprised by the performance, nor do I particularly care at this moment. We needed a morale boosting win to kick-start our season and we certainly got that.

 

I honestly think Holloway has a mancrush on Karanka. It was cringeworthy at times the sheer lust he had in his eyes for him. I could see him mentally undressing him and fantasising about running his fingers through them long brown locks. Karanka might get a nasty surprise if he offers him into his office for a post-match drink.

Karanka goes out of the room to get a bottle of Rioja and when he comes back Holloway is laid on his desk naked using Aitors picture of Mourinho to cover his privates.

Don't think so, think the deadline has passed.

Im with RR, My throat is gone.

 

Pandemonium when that goal went in, thought out stand was going to collapse!

 

Only negative for me was the booing of downing and mild booing for rhodes. It makes me so angry that people think that is acceptable. If anyone booed on here i want you to know, you are an idiot

Nope, the deadline is 2nd Sunday in March for 10 yellows. More annoyed with Clayton's yellow tbh, I didn't feel like he needed to make the challenge and he's 3 off a 3 game ban now. A few daft challenges could rule him out for the final run in over the next few games.

 

Kalas was definitely great tonight, made me feel a lot better about being without Ayala though I reckon this 2 week break should see Ayala back in the side.

 

There was a lot of frustrating times in the game tonight but coming out with a victory makes it much easier to say that we can put a lot of that down to good work from Hull's defenders and midfielders. Livermore and Huddlestone were very good defensively tonight, cleaned up well. You can see why they paid for Odubajo and Robertson looks really, really good.

I heard that on Sky when he came on. Made me bloody sick but based on Sunday at the Valley, it really doesn't surprise me that much. There was a lot of abuse going his way that day and it seems it is still going on. It's a case of Downing vs Karanka for a lot of people when there should be no picking sides in an argument we're not even sure took place. People who don't understand the need for solidarity across the board.

Holloway: "I really want you to go up Aitor, is there anything I can do to help?"

Karanka: "What were you thinking? Maybe tactically or man management?"

Holloway: "Come on Aitor, stop playing hard to get, you know I'm not talking about promotion, I was thinking more along the lines of stroking your thigh perhaps?"

Karanka: "Leo, Leo help quickly! *worried shout* you were right about him all along, oh Christ he's unzipping his trousers now, will someone call security!.... and maybe a cleaner"

Great news, hopefully the two week I/B will do us the world of good and we'll come out firing on all cylinders in a fortnight.

    • 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)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
