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.

    • Takes a nutter to know a nutter😉 Call me a nutter but I don't think Johnson is good enough and I'd rather someone else. As for Friend he's looked finished for a long time. Maybe it's because he will never reach 100% again.
    • You talk about coaching Coulson his attacking abilities but why not Johnson . Johnson as put in some good performances on the right side his crossing needs work probably because his face is not fitting with Woodgate and Keane when it comes to selecting the team. They would rather wait till they are desperate for a left back and shove him in that spot. So many nutters on here judging Johnson on his minor shots as a left sided player. Has for Georgie Boy he could still give any left back that is brought in a run for their money,when he is 100% so give him that chance. If some one as to leave then may I suggest the 2 coach's that are not doing their jobs Woodgate and Keane,I knew Woodgate would never make the grade but I did have higher hopes for Keane ,what a let down that guy as been. Just remember be thankful what we have because beggars cannot be chooses and there is a awful lot of *** players out there but not many decent ones.
    • The Belgian league is being cancelled and Club Brugge are crowned as champions. They have yet to figure out how relegation and promotion is sealed.
    • Dont think our desire to sign a left back spells the nd for Friend as thus far only 2 players JW has publicly indicated he wants to keep are Howson and Friend. I assume JW only gone public on them two as he positive there a wilingness on all sides to extend their respective stay. Johnson I think will end up being released along with Shotton Clayton and Rudy.
    • If we aspire to being a better club than we have been in the past, we have to learn from the big clubs and be more ruthless. Sadly that means players we may like as supporters, but are on a downward trend, must be sold or let go to make way for better prospects. The only worry I have with this is our total inability to spot a good proespect, Friend and Ayala are probably our last buys that fall imto that category, and they are noiw on their way out.  Ruthlessness must also apply to our backroom staff and scouting set up.
