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. :(

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.

    • As mentioned above I do feel the lack of depth and quality in the first half of the season had an impact with us unable to rotate and rest players in our squad meaning we struggled in the 2nd half of the season. The likes of Mcnair were playing 4 games in 8-9 days with the international breaks but we didn't have any option to rest him given injuries and lack of quality to cover him. I think we were only a point off Watford when we got to January. Unfortunately our 3 loanees came with a lack of match sharpness requiring time to settle and then we lost the likes of Tav Dijksteel and Fry at important parts of the season. I agree with the second part I do worry with giving Warnock significant money considering he has probably got no more than 12 months left with us. It would be a huge gamble and if it goes wrong it sets us back another few years. However we need a fair few signings to even get on par regarding the standard of our squad for this season.   
    • We were certainly worse after January but the 3 players we brought in hardly kicked a ball in the first half of the season and required several weeks if not months to get up to standard. I feel if they had all joined in the summer it would have eased the burden on the squad by giving us more depth and quality after a few weeks of the season. It would have eased the pressure and overplaying the likes of Taverner who ended up getting injured with nobody to come in to effectively replace him. I think our poor form in the 2nd half of the season would have been impacted by 'burnout' when you think about the amount of games several players were having to play. Howson and Mcnair examples of players who struggled towards the end of season. I do worry for next season though as we are going to need at least 6-7 new signings to replace what we have lost and probably a couple more on top of that to be seen as a strengthened team unless our academy players are able to make the step up. Im not sure I have faith in us completing so many signings this summer.  
    • The point being none settled in and we just got worse as the season rolled on and finally give up. A centre back is not what we needed but a new manager. How the hell SG can put faith and money in NW is simply financial suicide.  
    • Withered is very polite way of putting it, I would say we crashed landed with a large thump. What gets me is NW blamed the very signings he made and then concludes the fans will be happy. Not only that he hopes with new signings to finish 10th or possibly above. Setting the bar so low is hardly away to get fans buzzing and parting with money, it’s hardly worth bothering with next season. 
    • Would have preferred that you could have contacted one of the admin team first as there are certain subjects we wish to refrain from discussing. Your link does not appear to be correct btw
