Recommended Posts

Haha, it's because we are getting aboubakar. Think it's bull though. He was given so much time in pre season.

Why would we let Rhodes go on loan after spending 9 million on him six months ago

Clear that he isn't Karankas player and it says a lot that Nugent came on instead of him last week, if he goes we will sell him though, a loan makes zero sense

Rhodes was never to be considered on Saturday due to the passing of his grandfather a few days prior, apparently.

Trippier going to Southampton for 5 million, we really should have been all over that deal

 

Bamford going to wigan for 3 million, why arnt we all over that. 3 million is nothing in todays market. Would rather have him as third choice than Nugent

I think his problem is that he is repeating stuff written in the papers as fact.

Anyone know what time the Stadium of Light is open to away fans? Mackems have arrived at my house and I need a safe haven!

Still nearly two hours to go? Let's have another look at typicalbrough's fine opening post...

 

After only getting 2 attempts on target do you change anything for the game on Sunday?

Sunderland are a very different kettle of fish to that well organised Stoke side, although Moyes is likely to start remedying their shortcomings as one of his priorities. I'm anticipating that Mannone is in for a very stressful day.

 

Do you risk Ayala or Bernardo at CB?

Not if they're still unfit. Barragan will do for me.

 

Does Forshaw continue in midfield?

Should be okay there so long as Clattermole isn't around to put paid to him until January.

 

Why didn't Karanka make subs against Stoke?

According to his recent interview, he was pleased with the way we performed. If Rhodes wasn't really up for it, I suppose he could have introduced Fischer on the hour mark but who do you hook when they're all putting in a shift?

 

Is this already a 6 pointer?

Nah, we'll finish three places above them regardless of what today brings.

You must've started typing that a while ago bugs, it's just over an hour to go!

 

I have a feeling Ayala is going to start.

Took time out to bung match-day pasties in the oven and it would be great if he's fit.

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
