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

 

The neutrals can suck my nuts, I wanna win!!!

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.

 

It's a bit early to be getting sarcastic about our managers decisions isn't it

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?

 

Agree Tyler. Don't think Agnew is the answer to get us back up to the Premier league next year, but has come under ridiculous scrutiny since he took over the reigns.

After the Swansea game criticised for not having enough of a go and being to similar to Karanka. Changed it up against Hull and criticised for being too open and all the comments starting pouring in about how we would have never lost that game or conceded that many with Karanka.

Back to keeping it tight against Burnley and criticised again.

 

Now I'm not saying he shouldn't get criticised, becasue Karanka was criticised too. But I wish fans would make up their minds of what they want him to do with this team.

 

I really hope when we get our new gaffa in next season that it's just a fresh start, and there's no references or comparisons to the previous era. Need a refresh, trust the manager (whoever he may be) and back him for the season.

Need some positivity back to the Boro. I'm just gonna go to the remaining games with an open mind, and get to see the top teams playing and take it all in, before returning to the likes of Sheff Utd et al next year.

Surely you must be the first one to ever use that sentence about a Boro match

Guest Changing Times

I think Boro games could be entertaining for neutrals if they simply turned it into a drinking game.

 

Every time we pass back to Valdes have a drink.

Every time we fail to get a shot on target have a drink.

Every time Downing doesn't try to beat his man have a drink.

Every time Traore does try to beat his man (and everyone else's) have a drink.

Every time an attacking move is stalled and we end up going back to the defenders have a drink.

An old favourite would have been every time we aim it long for our lone striker who has nobody within 30 yards of him have a drink.

 

I'm sure we can all think of lots more.

 

Do that for a couple of hours and any neutral should be more than happy.

For every Forshaw pirouette do a shot

When the commentator mentions that SG and BG are related, do a shot

Every corner that fails to beat the first defender, do a shot

Every cross that has no one in the box, do a shot

When we willingly turn attack into defence, do a shot

 

I reckon I could be absolutely smashed by half time

Somewhere in the middle?

 

Changing only when there is a tactical need to AND assuming you have players capable of playing that system.

 

Karanka's problem was that he refused to change, even though there were glaringly obvious problems.

 

I suspect Agnew is still looking for a formula that works, trying to find a balance between attack and defence.

Its probably because there aren't any more important games for us this season. ;)

    • They mentioned in the last MSF meeting how they want to try and incorporate the digital offering into the plans they're doing around ticketing. It's pretty bad if they keep charging full whack throughout the season for the season passes for audio/video. It's come a long way since the original iFollow offering though in terms of quality. Video quality, more cameras, less cutting out, it's pretty decent now as a service. I wonder how well it sells at the moment, might be a point to ask them next time. It would be really good to get overseas views in the MSF thread about the online streaming service if there's any issues with it or suggested improvements.
    • Was he very well regarded at Swansea? I remember one season he was there and we beat them (think it was Duncans first game, the 2-1 win) I was reading the Swansea forum and it was comment after comment that basically said "I wish we had a goalkeeper that would dive, or do anything"   I know in the team he ended up with good statistics, but I don't know how well regarded he was by the actual fans.
    • It's 170 at the start of the season, that's all I paid IIRC.
    • I was exaggerating of course, but it would be like that if there was a rule that keepers had to be fully functional at all times
    • Dunno, £10 per match, 48 matches (assuming we get knocked out of each cup on our first try), it's still a bit of a saving. We can revisit next week and see if it's dropped.
