Worrying that valdes has injury problems 5mins into his career here. We clearly thought this may be the case, hence bringing in guzan.

Not really, it's a hammy. If Valdes worries you then de Roon must to.

There's no place on the bench for Jordan Rhodes either.

 

The Middlesbrough striker only moved to Teesside in a deal worth £13m in January but he has been completely overlooked today.

 

It comes amid further suggestions he could be on his way before the end of the transfer window.

Valdes has a recent history of injuries, is 34 and weeks after he came in we signed another goalkeeper which seemed unusual from the outside.

 

So no, not quite the same.

No pace in that team what so ever , Stuani wouldn't be in my starting 11 . Rhodes would be on the bench though , he throws some mental surprises now and again does AK it must be said .

It'd be an absolute joke if Rhodes leaves.

 

Why?

 

Because I'd rather put Rhodes on the wing than Stuani

 

Don't be silly.

More pace in an over 60 team

 

Be fair, Nsue is pretty rapid.

 

Hope Rhodes is alright - clearly his exclusion leaked out to Alan Nixon somehow, but I'm not going to start worrying about it yet. Surely Karanka will be quizzed about it post-match. Could be he's with his family for his grandfather's funeral for all we know.

Not really happy with this at all. Valdes is injured, Stuani starts and no Rhodes...

 

Your not happy?

I'm fine with Stuani personally, what I'm less fine with is 2nd game into the season and our 9 million pound striker is dropped from the squad?

 

We just can't let him go or mess around leaving him out unless we have a striker coming in as he goes out.

    • I'd also expect the same team barring Morsy, which is kind of worrying. I feel like if Coulson was playing left wing back against Barnsley, he might have at least had a chance to show what he can do getting down the outside of people. He did still somehow manage it on the right hand side later on in the game so maybe he plays right in this game too? Seems a bit of a push. First goal in this game feels like it's gonna be massive. If we can somehow get it, we might be able to *** house it through the 90 minutes. If Bournemouth get it, I feel like they're gonna just pick us off one by one. If it was any other team playing these, I'd have it down as both teams to score. We have to show something significantly better than we did against Watford for that, though. 
    • Just in case anyone is interested Bray Wanderers are top of the first division in the league of Ireland after 12 games. The only team worth keeping an eye on after the mighty Boro of course 😃
    • H Blackburn Rovers v Wycombe Wanderers H Brentford v Huddersfield Town A Luton Town v Derby County H Middlesbrough v AFC Bournemouth H Norwich City v Preston North End A Nottingham Forest v Cardiff City D Reading v Barnsley A Rotherham United v Millwall D Sheffield Wednesday v Watford D Stoke City v Bristol City A Swansea City v Birmingham City
    • I'm very much enjoying Ferencváros' run in the champions league qualifiers, hope they can qualify to the groups. Already knocked out Celtic and Dinamo Zagreb and definitely capable of beating Molde.
