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 fully expect that we will be back in full lockdown by mid January; at least in the North and Midlands (London and the South might get spared as putting them into another lockdown would be politically more damaging for the government in the longer-term due to voting patterns).  Allowing the Christmas window and then locking us down again after enables the government to be seen to be doing something about the virus and all the 'irresponsible' people in the North, and therefore keeps their core Southern voters happy.  I will admit that I have broken the current lockdown, but I have done so in a responsible way.  I live on my own and have no remaining family, so I do not have significant contact with people (not of the sort that would promote virus spread).  I have one friend who I saw a few times in the Summer, and there was one occasion we met up with a couple of other people outside at the picnic tables at the Dales Centre.  Other than that, I have not seen anyone properly since early March.  I am in the very vulnerable group (on medical grounds, not age) and was shielding until August.  Being trapped inside and never seeing anyone has been really bad for my mental health to the point where I have sometimes felt like I would be better off dead.  I have been doing 'non essential' trips out because I cannot cope with being shut in any more.  I have been driving to places on my own and not been in close contact with anyone other than passing on footpaths (on places like Hedleyhope and Waskerley) or on my weekly Greggs trip.  There are days when I have gone for a drive simply to get out of the house.  I need to go beyond my village to not feel shut in and sub-human.  I am not in a social bubble because most people are in bubbles with their parents or children and the the small number who aren't had formed themselves into friendship pair bubbles while I was still shielding.   The whole system assumes that everyone has a partner or family.
    • Do Sheffield United want Britt think he'd get along well with their strike force 🤪 
    • Yeah the fatigue thing cant be used as a mitigating factor as every team in the league is dealing with the same schedule, some with a couple of extra cup games earlier in the season and some with more than just 2 international players. Yes we have a smaller squad than some but we also have players in the squad who aren't getting minutes which is the managers decision. Fatigue management is just another facet of management and if we start to lose games because of it that's on the management team.
    • I think some of the players today looked fatigued, in my opinion. NW not picking certain players, not making substitutions earlier or even using all 5 allowed substitutions (recently), will further fatigue certain players as they will have to continue to play on. Howson, McNair, Dijksteel, Saville and Tav have all played over 1100 minutes so far this season. Only Brentford have the same amount of outfield players (5) as us, to have played over 1100 minutes. So although we both agree we are in the same predicament as every other team, our circumstances in terms of player numbers are certainly different. Regarding your other points they are well made, but I'm not sure why you have made them when the original discussion was regarding player fitness and how I thought it played a small part in today's performance.
