I'm quite suprised most people are picking the same team as sun.

 

He might think it is their chance of redemption. Then again after sunday he could drop the lot and they couldn't complain

I think whatever the personnel changes. We need to be more attack minded. The defensive strategy that ensured clean sheets and the counter attacking football that served us so well before Christmas. Is unfortunately unlikely to get us the points that will be required to attain automatic promotion. Its obvious that opposing sides have developed a strategy to counteract our methods. However we now have a more potent strike force with Ramirez and Rhodes, but we are still not getting bodies in the box for crosses and Rhodes/ Nugent become isolated. Clayton/Leadbitter/Forshaw are holding us back in varying degrees. Not necessarily their fault, they are playing to instructions. But all the time we have Ramirez having to come and take the ball from (That's what Tomlin had to do last season)them to get some forward momentum. he is not in the danger area around the penalty area causing defenders problems and making openings for the rest.

 

Only a opinion of course. As I fully realise that AK is a better football coach than I.

Only scored 2 all season I think but then that has been quite a surprise by all accounts. Did score the equaliser on Tuesday and think his only other goal was first game of the season, if I remember rightly.

 

We shall see. I'm bloody excited now, wish I was going to the Riverside, sat in the same seat I was at the Derby game where the noise was non-stop. Reckon a few who I met on Sunday will say I gave it a good go shouting the team on when it seemed like it was only going to go one way.

 

T-T-TEESSIDERS!

I'd still like to see Stuani and someone else up front, we've really not had much chance of seeing it this season. That would be if we did go 4-4-2, of course. I'm happy with 4-2-3-1.

 

big stu would probably flourish in a 442.  i bet he'd score a tonne.

I've actually got to miss this one, gutted. It's my missus birthday so couldn't really get out of it :) Not sure whether to try and keep up on my phone, or just forget about it and check the score at full time!

Agree with the downing part. Can't play Nsue on the wing as the guy can't cross to save his life. Hope de laet replaces him at RB.

What you need to do is order something dodgy to eat. It will give you plenty of excuses to go the toilet to check your phone. I'll be at my mom-in-laws birthday so I'll have to rely on the phone too.

Think she might clock on to that one, seems as she's well aware the Boro are on tv tonight :) think I might just try and not check until the end, win some serious brownie points, then drop the news about going to QPR away next week...

    • @Maccarone Im assuming sheff Utd is h based on key location?
    • Yeah Bola was brought back too quickly by Warnock twice and was injured in the games he returned in. Dijksteel once.  Hopefully we'll see a lot less of that going on now that we have a manager who isn't just out for himself.
    • Last season Bola played 41 games out of 46, which is pretty good. Fry started 32 out of the first 38, but then missed the last 8 games - presumably one injury. The season before, Fry started 36 games with two short spells out ( Bola wasn’t bring picked a lot that season from memory.) So for those two, this season may be just unlucky, poor fitness management, as Wilder has suggested, or bringing them back too quickly after injury. There doesn’t seem to be a long term repeated history of injuries. Dijk does seem to miss more games though.
    • Thanks for putting some more context out there - stop the idiots claiming it’s just snowflakes being upset with the songs etc. It’s absolutely vile that female fans are being groped, hopefully more people will come forward and the club can deal with people appropriately. The leagues need to work together to take a tough stance on drugs use. As we saw at the Euros it’s ruining matches as well as our opportunity as a country to host big games and tournaments. 
    • It doesn’t look good but I suspect we will end up around mid table. We may struggle over the coming games but I expect improvement will be great enough to see us home. I would go as far to say we may even finish around 10th.  I am impressed with Chris in the press conferences, he comes across well, his knowledge of the club’s infrastructure and his plans give me confidence of his leadership.  I believe we are in good hands.
