The word on Twitter is that Negredo could be out the rest of the year. Not saying I believe it, just passing it on.

 

Hopefully rest of the year doesn't mean rest of the season. :(

I think Stuani has only played once as the central striker against Oldham when he scored his brace.

 

Personally, I don't think he's got the attributes to keep possession of the ball with his back to goal and bring others in to play. So I can't see him starting in that role for us in the Premier League, ever.

 

Due to the substitutions earlier in the season, I think Nugent will be Karanka's second choice, then Rhodes.

Nobody really thinks that AK hates Rhodes to the point where he desperately doesn't want to play him, do they? To the point he could even consider Rhodes being injured as 'convenient'?

 

He doesn't rate him, that much is clear by now, but I really don't think he hates him to that degree. That would be weird.

 

Maybe not but that voodoo doll of Rhodes that Karanka has might have just come up trumps for him  ;)

 

If the question was, 'Would Karanka be happier picking Rhodes and him scoring or not picking Rhodes so he can't score at all?', I'm honestly not sure which way I'd lean.  You'd think it would be the former but then Karanka doesn't strike me as somebody that likes being proven wrong or that likes having things forced upon him.  As someone that's rarely if ever wrong I can respect that part of him at least I suppose.

When have you ever been wrong mate? (Out of interest).

 

When he posts on the oneBoro forum, usually.

The only time I remember CT being wrong, was that time that he thought he'd made a mistake.

But of course he hadn't ;)

Had a call from AK tonight and he said "Hey trekkers, seeing as it's your birthday on Sunday do you want a game?" I respectfully declined as I thought that Ramirez is playing so well he shouldn't change a winning team!!! Roll on Sunday for the beer fest!!

 

Are you sure it hasn't already started?

 

Standing by my phone again. Can play if needed up front !!!!!!!

    • Historically Boro have not done well at Stoke: Overall: Played 100 Won 42 Drawn 22 Lost 36 Home: Played 50 Won 31 Drawn 11 Lost 8 Away: Played 50 Won 11 Drawn 11 Lost 28 This season Stoke's home record reads P10 W6 D2 L2, so Boro's prospects don't look great. Think we will do well to get a point. Won't be too upset if we lose.  
    • Well that's part of trying to play the counter attack, isn't it? For every lung full you give yourselves, you also give it to your opponents and get them prepared to defend. It wasn't like he was rushing his goal kicks either but when the ball was in his hands, it was usually after a period of Swansea pressure and he had his head up wanting to get us back up the pitch quickly which is exactly what you should be doing if you're playing on the counter-attack. We still wanted the second goal so as a group, we tried to counter them, we kept pressing them until the end, we didn't sit back and try and re-form our unit as a team when the opportunity might be there for a chance. So I guess you could say in my eyes, it wasn't about the keeper's decision, it was a tactical decision for the team. We wanted to kill the game off, even without possession we wanted to match or better Swansea's tempo. So I'm not sure why that comes back onto just the keeper.
    • I still don’t get why there is a deep analysis of Daniel and our goalkeepers when there is clearly greater problems in the quality of outfield players. I can’t remember a time a keeper has been slagged so much for not conceding a goal.  Given Swansea had pressed so high in the second half, our midfield where loosing the battle with a tiring back line, the fact there was plenty of green behind Swansea defence, and we have a history of conceding some stupid goals his decision making was right. If from recent games you take away the amount of self inflicted goals how many have we conceded, not many. Anyway I am a great believer in the term, if in doubt, kick it out. It’s not pretty but you get to reassess the situation. 
    • In the world of what ifs, we're in the top 6.
