Boro Vs Watford (Away) 0-0


Recommended Posts

That was absolutely dreadful once again. Never been more bored watching us, worrying thing is karanka and the players are happy with it, he is an embarrassment, how long do we have to accept this *** before he is sacked

 

Rubbish.

 

It may be boring but I far prefer it to struggling at the bottom of the championship with Mowbray or Strachan. People have such short memories.

 

Well said, we have some idiots following our club these days  :huh:

 

One thing that irritates me on this forum...

 

The people who are positive (I accept that I used the term 'rose tinted' the other day, but that's hardly derogatory), you seem to think it's OK to call folk who are negative or unhappy 'idiots', 'stupid', 'pathetic', 'bed wetters', 'cry babies'.... the list goes on.

 

Can't you make your positive points without the superiority, or without being condescending?

 

Just a thought.... I realise it'll make no difference.

 

Cheers.

 

That's his standard reaction if he doesn't agree with someone, don't take it personally

I could well be wrong but I'm pretty sure this post was made after two separate posters called our manager an idiot and an embarrassment. People can't have it both ways.

 

There is surely a difference between calling a third party an idiot, (especially one who is paid monstrous amounts of money to take criticism), and using the same phraseology to fellow posters just because their opinion differs from yours.

 

He doesn't get paid to take criticism, and he definitely doesn't get paid to take personal insults.

"He doesn't get paid to take criticism", I would suggest he is in the wrong job then, insults I agree are a different matter, but once again it goes with the territory.

His job is to manage the football team, yes criticism is part and parcel of the job but he is not paid to take it.

Thought he got turned too easily a couple of times and was too slow into challenges a couple of other times. But then I didn't make much of Leadbitter either and Forshaw was the poorest of the lot. I don't think anyone covered themselves in glory, maybe Fabio as the best of the lot?

Forshaw seemed lost every time he was in the final third which was quite a lot in this system. He does all his best work in the centre circle with the ball at his feet, he doesn't suit the more advanced role he was in in that system

 

De roon is more effective when given a more free role in he centre like he has recently, today he seemed to be given the Clayton role and was pretty anonymous.

 

Leadbitter... I don't know how he fits in anymore.

Me neither and I can't see an effective two from those four if we want to go back to 4-2-3-1 at any point. Clayton and de Roon? Forshaw and Clayton? Forshaw and de Roon? Leadbitter and? I just don't see Leadbitter being capable of it, he looks to be struggling even in a three sadly but he's barely played of course.

Clayton and De Roon is the only two that I can see working, but they're the two with the least technical ability so we'd really be relying on the three in front to do all the creativity.

That'll work fine when the 3 in front are Ramirez---Bojan---Deulofeu ;)

 

On a side note I thought Stuani had a decent game today. Dare I say he looks to have finally developed something that resembles a decent first touch?

    • Jordan had said he'd spoken to people at all ends, I think. Gibson, Morris and the administrator. He seems to count all as either decent people or friends but had stuff to say about Morris' handling of it. He also said knowing Gibson as long as he has, he wouldn't make a fuss about something were there not some justification for it. For me personally, the big thing is looking back at the season in question. Thinking we should be due any kind of compensation for that season is hard. It entirely fits in with the narrative Pulis had after his last game, the whole 'finishing 7th better than 5th the year before'. I have a hard time accepting that finish was anything but our own fault but in fighting this case, we are saying it is in some way Derby's because of their cheating. I don't honestly think there's enough there in sporting terms to suggest they put themselves in a significantly difficult position to best and Pulis was certainly getting paid enough to justify him doing better with the squad we had. But that's just the emotional side of it for me. Reading what Rob Nichols told us and what Jordan has said certainly opens your eyes to how essentially evil the situation remains from a Derby perspective. I still hate Morris for what he's done and I hate the idea they could fight their way out of their situation this season or even look remotely rosy next season. I don't want them to disappear, I'll feel some sense of relief if/when they get bought. But so long as they reach that stage, I'll have them under my own 'intense scrutiny'.
    • Love this from the cameraman, UTB.
    • Interesting... I did hear the Jordan comments but don't fully understand the technicalities of the whole Derby becoming debt-free and returning stronger thing. Was news to me that the £45m thing was *** (I guess Simon may have heard that from Steve himself...?) I just hope it doesn't dissolve into "Boro are trying to kill Derby" and we get piled on... which is the narrative they're clearly desperate to create. We all know what football fans and pundits are like and most people won't read or understand the details. I'm a Boro fan and I still admit to not fully getting some of it.
