One of the things I like about Fischer is he looks to shoot and he also appears quite accurate at it.


Something to go to sleep on...

Our players will wake up thinking the worst that can happen is Swansea go level on points if they lose...But Swanseas players will be facing a 6 point gap if they lose.


The onus should be on us to win as the home side but the pressure is certainly on them

Obviously if Gaston is fit he'd slot into the centre of the three and Forshaw would drop into De Roons place.


Absolutely massive game for us this one I'd say it's amuse win because we need to beat the teams around us and really put pressure on them. Think we will do it. Going for a 2-0 win

I'd like to see Downing back in the team tomorrow. I thought he had a very good start to the season. We need some Premier League experience and grit in that midfield tomorrow. Same reason I'd probably bring Leadbitter back into the fold. We have two very big games now, we need all our leaders on the pitch.

I quite like Downing but "grit" is not really a word I would associate with him...some of his crossfield passes on occasion are a word that rhymes with grit...experience and ball rententionitude might be more accurate.

From Karanka's press conference via the Gazette:


"Stuani is not available, Gaston we need to check as he’s been training but not 100%, Calum is OK."


"Yes we have to try and be organised because they’re a dangerous team, they score a lot of goals but we have to take advantage with the ball as they concede goals too.

If we win 5-4 it’s no problem, 1-0 is no problem, it’s about the points against a team in our position."


I think March 2015 was the last time we scored 4 in a game, so I think you're being rather optimistic to think we might score 4 today and I can't remember the last time we scored 5.

Where's KM this morning? Late night watching the soaps?


I've been sat waiting for my turn in the hairdressers since 8.30...


Anyway, got a good feeling about today.

Boro 0 - 1 Swansea




 Give your reasons on the back of a £5 note and send it to me :)


It's hard to write on the new ones. Better to play it safe and make it a tenner ;)


Even with a Stabilo?


 A tenner it is then:


Erimus 63

Cubicle 3

Behind The Pipes

Kings X

Fischer over Downing all day long. Downing WAS good, but now he is too slow and plays it too safe, to ever be a threat or a treat.


WTF does Fischer have to do, to convince the last few of you, who doesn't see the fight, determination and approach he brings? He has that MADNESS we have been missing the last 3 years under Aitor Caramba ...


Try and look at his half against Liverpool, how often he keeps the ball in hard situations, with 2 or 3 oponents on his back, and still manages to pass it to a mate.


He also has a good corner kick - And yes it can be better, but at least it gave us two goals this season.


He improves game for game, and when he scores the first goal, he will believe even more and more goals will follow.


Couldn't agree more, one thing we need more of is players facing opposition's defences(not the back of there heads) Fischer gives us that positivity going forward, not always easy when the rest of the team play with the handbrake on, he gives us the width down the left, he cuts inside switches balls to opposite wing(brought barragan in plenty of times), and the ones mentioning his skills, since when have we been a skillful team, always been hardworking and honest(most of the time), Downing was a sentimental buy, Fischer All day!!! UTB!!!!

    • I think United have been trying to use Henderson when they can since Sheffield United last loaned him, don't think there was a plan for him to be loaned out.
    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there. 
    • Hartlepool, Harrogate, Newcastle or Leeds please. (Away)  
    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
