Recommended Posts

Can only see a boro loss here..a big one at that..the team gives me no confidence..early i know but i dont feel ak is the man to take us forward

 

If I ever need talking down from the ledge, I hope you aren't around!

 

Couldn't have said it better myself. Although if I remember rightly bally was one of the doom ***ers last season

For all of Karankas skills as a manager he seems to be a very poor man manager, Rhodes shouldn't be going anywhere

 

^^^Totally true. Karanka does indeed seem to be a bit of a D-head.

AK does have a habit of leaving big players out of the squad. I remember Adomah not travelling to MK Dons in Feburary for example. I was pretty shocked when he played Nugent/Stuani against Brighton but they won us promotion so keep the faith

To be fair you match our side up man for man with Sunderland I think there's maybe one of their XI I'd take in ours. We have Fischer and Adomah as options on the bench if the game develops into a stalemate.

 

Saying that I'm not sure when we became a club capable of dropping a 8 figure striker from our squad but I'll keep the faith. They have 1 striker so Barragan should be fine I just feel the Rhodes decision has cast a shadow over today especially if we lose.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,

You make me happy when skies aren't blue

You'll never know mate, how I don't love you

Just wish that you'd stay 'way on match day

What if Rhodes has been given time away for the passing of his grandfather?

We haven't even played the game, never mind lost. It's only the second game of the season, the last one we acquitted ourselves well and got a draw. And now some people are calling for Karanka's head?! WTF...

 

Even if he is a bit of a "D-head", which I don't necessarily believe, there are plenty of managers who are - none less than his mentor Mourinho. And that hasn't exactly prevented him from being successful has it?

Where's that "shakes head in disbelief' emoji.

 

Really wonder how some posters go about their life in general the amount of despair I read on here sometimes

Then that's understandable and hopefully that's the case and Aitor confirms this.

 

I think it's possible. Could be his grandfather's funeral or something, could be anything. Could be that Nixon's right and he's going to leave. But I'm not going to worry until we've at least had the question put to Karanka...

Beer out of the fridge and nibbles on the table forget the team selection until it is all over just enjoy the match. Come on Boro we have enough to beat these time for inquests later.

    • Fletcher he has grown on me this season. That said theres been a fair few games recently where he has ball watched or jumped for a header knowing he was nowhere near it. When we had our mini revival though he looked a good player he battled and held up the ball well and could see theres a decent player there. But if hes not on his game hes like a rabbit in the headlights. However I dont see him as the guy who will score the goals to win promotion or save you from relegation which we really need him to be right now. 
    • He was NOT the fans choice. He was Gibson's choice and it was pretty clear before he was appointed that we did not want him as a manger or head coach. Our concerns were completely dismissed then, and are still being dismissed. This is not down to unrealistic expectations. Most have been highlighting a mid-table finish as what should be achievable with the players we have and now simply want to stay in the Championship - both of which would have been realistic under a manger with a basic level of competence.  People gave Woody time (way more time than they would have given anyone else) but that does not mean he was our choice.
    • Who’s knows where we’d be if Roberts didn’t get injured and McNair took away that penna...
    • It’s a loss in the sense that now Coulson will probably go back to Lb.  That essentially gets rid of any pace and attacking threat from the forwards.
