Boro V Arsenal 1-2

Recommended Posts

I have just lost interest in this season and it is like finding a hole in your life, no anticipation during the build up, no excitement on waiting for the team news and the inevitability of the result is the final straw. Just let it be over so we can see what team we put out next year, who has gone, who has stayed, and move on from there.

Oh, and 0-0 Monday night

 

A 600 mile round trip for another 0-0, I really should know better. Personally pinning my last little ounce of optimism on a 1-0

 

I hope you are right. 600 miles is a killer.

You're better off spending the money on drink and consoling yourself after the game.

***nal are a club in absolute turmoil right now, we could actually nick this one.

 

I'll clutch that straw!  :D

 

If ***ne fails to get their heads right, might just, possibly, conceivably pull off a shock result. Was rather shocked to hear Walcott admit that Palace wanted it more...and that he could tell from the kick-off. Pretty damning. If that doesn't spell the end for Wenger I don't know what will (maybe if we do the unthinkable?).

 

However, since this is Boro we're talking about, it'll probably be business as usual and we'll get soundly thumped.

 

Have to admit I've pretty much lost all interest in the season now and will probably just catch MOTD for the remaining games.

This season has killed my passion for football.

 

It reminds me of Christmas morning as a kid. Each time waking up hoping for some magical present only be let down with the same old satsuma and then spent the rest of the day listening to drunk uncle ***head.

 

Only this happens every week :(

 

I'm getting to this point. I haven't really looked forward to a match for a few months because there's just a sad inevitability to it all.

 

These are times that try men's souls.  The summer solider and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their football club; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.  The Premier League, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: T'is dearness only that gives everything it's value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon it's goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as Premier League survival should not be highly rated.

 

Nice! Definitely worthy of a +1.

 

 

But yeah, I'm definitely a sunshine soldier / Summer patriot... ;)

I'll be honest with you Tyler, you struggling to understand things doesn't surprise me ;)

 

And another 0-0 you think?  They're really spoiling us this season, aren't they? :)

 

Fixed it for ya!  :D

I watched ***nals last game their defenders are cowards against anyone who is physical so for me id defiantly put Gestede on (he will win all the Ariel battles) as one of the strikers with Bamford to run in behind their defence. If chambers is back (i dont know) can he play against ***nal if he can then bloody play him with Gibson. Troare terrorised aresnal last time with his pace so i would put him on the wing even though his delivery his horrendous most of the time. Left wing is an interesting one Gaston is better quality but not sure he wants to be here any more and Downing fustrates and delights in the same game. Fabio and friend if fit should be playing but not sure if they are fit if not id play Husband not downing tbh with right back Barragan.

 

Cmon on boro if you get in ***nals faces they wont like it and we can pull off a shock.

Thankfully, everything is hunky dory with us  ;)

 

Ha ha, yes we are on the crest of a wave now so this is a definite 3 points.

I wonder what Agnew's next knee jerk reaction will be for this game. I suspect that it will probably be to try to copy the style that Crystal Palace played against ***nal. It's just a shame that we don't have the same quality of players as Crystal Palace. There doesn't seem to be much of a plan.

If there was an away game we deserved to win it was at their place, we matched them and Ramirez missed the best chance of the game, they were worried about AT so if he plays further up the field I am sure he will create opportunities.

 

Should be an entertaining game for the neutrals

This is the problem with football.

Karanka was criticised for rarely changing formation. Sticking to his principles and refusing to budge.

Agnew is criticised for changing too much. Not having a system and making it up as he goes along.

 

Which is the better option?

    • I think we do need a foreign manager in as they just seem to have better connections as we would never of signed Kike Stuani, Ramirez if Karanka wasn't Spanish didn't speak the language. That's the trouble hard with English manager they don't speak the language or get the culture that puts us at disadvantage in recruitment when most flair players are foreign 
    • @Erimus 63 I am not sure how from my post you came to conclusion i was in adoration of Gibson. In fact i actually state “gibson is not perfect”. To be fair no owner is. People who are fans of Gibson can point to justifiable reasons why. And people who are not fans of his can also make some justifiable reasons as to why they are not. I can appreciate both sides of argument. However, the point of my post was to simply say “the grass is not always greener on the other side”.   Do I want to see if the grass is greener? Not really. I see other clubs who were similar in size to us during our PL days and look at where some of them are now and I really dont wish to take the risk. Yes under new ownership, we might end up back in PL but there is also just a good a chance we might end up falling down the leagues and as @Blanco rightly said ultimately not end up existing at all.  For that reason I am not actively going to champion Gibson should leave or sell the club. For all his faults I know he genuinely give a sh*t about this club and wont let us follow the journey that unfortunately some of the other clubs our size have in recent years. And that will more than do for me.
    • I don’t want Gibson to sell the club. However, I do want him to delegate his powers to a Director of Football. Much in the same way that whilst Delia Smith is a great cook, she knows her limitations running a football club in an efficient and effective manner so appointed Stuart Webber to do this. Gibson just rates himself too highly to think that anyone could possibly do this better than him. The Evening Gazette and BBC Tees portray any criticism of Gibson as fans wanting him to sell the club, but it’s not that at all. I think the vast majority want him to be our owner, just not the key decision maker as he’s not very good at it.
    • That is absolute BS. There would be no club without Gibson. The stupid vilification of him is what has to stop.
