Boro vs Sunderland (a) 2-1

Recommended Posts

Time to start drinking yet? Nervous as usual about this one. With all the things that are going wrong with Sunderland, it'll be vintage Boro to lose. Prove me wrong fellas!

I'd like to think we come out all guns blazing, considering Sunderland centre back woes. Nice early goal. Settles us down and shut home fans up.

Wow some time since you last posted Egga71 must be an important game :D

 

Looking forward to it immensely and hey if Hull can do it (hats off to them) we can get our first away win of the season also

Just read an article on boro Facebook page from a paper. Apperntly Rhodes ain't in the sqaud today and will be sent on loan to the championship. Hope it's bull.

Makes absolutely no sense at all. Don't believe that for one second.

 

It's Alan Nixon...don't know whether to believe it or not now. :(

If that's true we must have someone lined up to replace him, can't believe it is though.

Ridiculous if true. The man hasn't even been given a minute of premier league football yet. You have to feel for the bloke.

Let's not forget that Nixon had close contacts regarding the Rhodes transfer.

 

Let's also not forget that he abused that position to spread lies about Rhodes and his agents being let down by our offer and how we'd have to sort it out for the deal to be resurrected.

 

I would take any Rhodes information spread by Alan Nixon with a pinch of salt. He had a great pre-season, IMO we'd be mad to let him go anywhere.

If he isn't in the squad today then I reckon there's something in it. Adds to the theory that AK didn't want Rhodes in the 1st place.

Maybe Rhodes picked up an injury in training and he's been left out of the quad and Nixon has decided to make a story of it.

Yeah, I was thinking this too.

    • No I've been told the same but the wages wouldn't be a huge issue. From what I've been told the percentage isn't enormous and the amount wouldn't be a huge issue for the club. Again I can't say more than that. (other than it shouldn't cost the club more than 10k per week apparently) 
    • Giving up on a young player after one costly mistake sounds like horrible player management.
    • Middlesbrough v Birmingham Tuesday, 19:45 - The Riverside Stadium   "Well, at least I had the Christmas period off......"   The Form Middlesbrough last six: LLDDWW Two consecutive defeats on the telebox within the last week sounds ominous, but if we had got started quicker in both games the results could have been oh so different as Boro seemed to grow into both games. A brilliant December results-wise, which saw us pull away from relegation and had the more optimistic of us dreaming of sneaking into the playoffs. As Woodgate struggles through a very congested January while trying to keep players fresh, results are starting to suffer due to rotation (Rudy F'ing Gestede as a lone striker?!?). Hopefully this is just a blip against better teams and not the MotM curse rearing it's ugly head.   Birmingham last six: DWWLLD Brum have started to pick up a bit of form - and a couple of red cards - in their last 6 games, with goals aplenty being both scored and conceded, but only 2 losses registered. Former Tony Mowbray signing Lukas Jutkiewicz leads the line for Brum, having scored 9 goals so far this season. Pep Clotet's side currently sit in 18th, 1 point and one place below Boro, having scored 34 and conceded 45 so far this term.   The Line-Up It's a shame that this game was moved forward, as Woodgate alluded to in his post match interview it doesn't leave much time for anything but recuperation, and a bit more rest would be nice.... however, Birmingham do have a day less, so every cloud!  Hopefully we will see Fletch start up front again after his cameo against Fulham, and maybe Wing on for Clayton. You also have to wonder how long Coulson and Spence can go without a rest, but who would you replace them with at the minute?       Woody-Vision *Will be updated after the pre-match press conference*   The View From The Other Side *To be updated when I find it*  
    • I mean Oxford's on 20k a week with a potential 2 million pound fee at the end of it goes well the Gibson stuff is a completely different ballgame he's on minimum 40k a week plus if there was a potential fee the minimum would be 8-10 million I don't understand why Gibson gets spoke about when every other name we're linked with or are reportedly scouting are just nowhere near that level financially. Reading up on Oxford's season apparently the manager just lost complete faith in him after substituting him on vs Schalke and then late in the game Oxford misplaced a backpass causing them to score the winner and he's been cast out of the starting XI/fringes since there's definitely an interest from them in cashing out on Oxford this month. Even at 20k a week Oxford would be in an upper bracket for us that's why I'm glad it seems like a loan to buy because going forward next season I don't see us having many 20k a week subs around the squad.
    • We were awful at Birmingham.  If he thinks she was giving him a hard time then it's probably a good job he wasn't having a read of this place.  We were dreadful and plenty of people on here were talking about Woodgate and his job.
