Ignore Beamish, his only input on here is digs at other people which the mods continue to ignore for whatever reason.

 

This. Gets away with murder.

 

It's hardly murder. ;)

 

And neither of you two know what the Mods do behind the scenes in regards to discussion and PMs sent to posters when they step over the line

 

You're right I don't know that but what I do know is that he continues to do it so either he's ignoring you or nothing is being said at all.  It's not a one off, it's pretty much all the fella posts.

What was said?

 

Just basically saying that Maddo has been 'throwing fuel on the fire' about negativity, and claiming that Maddo was leading the 2 up top calls, and apparently asking for wingbacks(?). safe to say he wasnt having any of it

 

So it was all true what he was saying?

 

He also said Maddo was the worst commentator wed ever had and was stealing a living...

 

Possibly a tad harsh then :D

 

Whoa!

 

I'd have told whoever it was to get their backsides over to the studio and say it to my face.

 

I know Maddo isn't the most eloquent guy ever to pick up a mic, but he is passionate about the club and just wants us to do well.

To be honest I haven't noticed to much of what he posts but I have called him out on his conduct tonight. If you do notice something I've missed you could always give me a heads up in a message that would help

I think the issue is that Maddos style worked quite well with the completely rose-tinted Ali sat next to him but not so much with Mark Drury. I don't enjoy listening to them anymore, not even the phone in really. Study showed his true colours regarding AK after the walk out when he went absolutely full on slating him on the radio.

It's full blown murder and I'm not exaggerating in any way :)

But in all seriousness he does just come on here to slate and, yes your right we don't know what goes on behind the scenes, but he doesn't seem to care.

Give me mod status man and I'd have this place culled down to a minimum, probs cull myself included in that :)

If there's anything more predictable than Boro's tactics (at times) it's the reactions of OneBoro members.

 

Win and the team (and Karanka) are practically demi-gods.

Draw and we play boring, negative football (and Karanka out).

Lose and we are crap (and Karanka double out).

 

Lest we forget, we played Watford at home back in October and lost. Given the death of Graham Taylor, I was dreading this match because I was sure that Watford would pull out of all the stops. I'd call coming away with a point a creditable result, in the circumstances.

 

Our scoring weakness has been identified and steps are being taken to try and rectify this. End of debate.

 

Why can't people accept that we're new to the Premier League and we are still finding our way? No, it's not always high-octane adrenaline pumping excitement to watch but I can live with that for this season, as long as we stay up.

Another game and another dissapointing performance. Is this what it's come to now? Grinding out 0 - 0 results away from home with 5 at the back and 1 shot on target?

 

That's consistent. I turned off after 60 minutes as I was genuinely bored. Nothing about that game was entertaining from a fans point of view, let alone the neutral.

 

What was our game plan today? Genuinely would love to hear other people's thoughts on this? I love everything boro related, but this is not how I would want us to play. We have 0 ambition to win a game, I don't see how that's a good aspect.

 

Fans who make the away trips must be so bored. I honestly don't get how yoi could spend that money and give up a part of your life for one shot on goal and a *** performance.

 

What worries me the most is that it's deemed as acceptable and part of the course with Karanka.

 

I'm not even looking forward to next week's match as it just pains me to watch us.

 

Please say I'm not the only one? For people who still defend Aitor, apart from a point and a clean sheet, what impressed you about the performance today?

 

Don't get me wrong, they are good things. But why are we happy that we have kept it tight rather than 0 goals again?

Our two most successful managers of recent times - McClaren and Karanka - have been given the tag of negative football by a decent section of our fans. Yet surely them same fans must see the correlation between tactical awareness(or negativity) and what they have achieved?. I find it funny in this conflict of knowledge/opinions that Karanka is apparently the idiot - just like McClaren would have been and idiot over a decade ago - and not those slagging him off, who'll have been brought up on a footballing knowledge of screaming "four, four, ***ing two!".

A point and a clean sheet. Not impressive football obviously but I was surprised that Watford were so negative and defensive considering our league position and the fact that they were playing at home. Draws won't get us to safety but I'll settle for away points IF we can chalk up 3 points at home.

i'm not looking forward to next weeks game, my alcohol consumption is getting higher prior to heading over to the ground to try and get me through the 90 mins.

We can all go on about negative tactics, one man up front etc, most teams play one man, only problem is the quality of player giving support to the front men, its something we lack.

    • 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)
