Boro V Arsenal 1-2

Recommended Posts

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.

 

I'm not sure alcohol poisoning is a cause for happiness...  :s

I don't think Agnew should be anywhere near our manager's position. However, he's taken over at a point where we have to win games. Narrowly losing and people being content because we didn't get battered isn't an option, nor is trying to scrape draws and hoping for the best. We spent the bulk of the season doing just that and it left us second bottom after 27 games and losing ground on teams that we were actually better than a few months previously. Therefore Agnew is now changing stuff to try and find a formula that works and gives us a shot of actually winning. Personally I'd rather that than changing nothing, still losing and simply not looking like winning at all or getting close to it. I really don't see how anyone can logically be happier with that? If he stumbles on something that works then great although I won't be holding my breath. One things for certain though, continuing as we were wasn't going to lead to a more successful conclusion to this season.

I think you should delete this post. People could die.

Decent results for us today, but we've messed up with the 'easy' games that often that games like this become 'must wins'.

 

Oddly I'm feeling confident. Hopefully ***nal continue their rocky patch and we nick it 1-0.

 

I'd have bamford starting up front with Gestede or negredo. They could both be fruitful partnerships.

 

I just want to watch the funny fellows at ***nal.tv having a meltdown after the game...

I was just thinking the same about ***nal fan tv. What a laugh that would be if we beat them

Having watched us live 32 times this season ... I admire how some of you have optimism that we're going to win this game. :D

Don't get me wrong, I love this club to the moon and back. I go to most matches. I cheer and shout from the first minute until that final whistle but I'm also aware that it's not going to have much of an impact. We can't score, we leak goals and relegation us upon us. It doesn't mean I love the club any less. It just means I've steeled myself for the inevitable. I've seen nothing from the previous games to suggest that we're staying up.

Whilst I agree with everything you've said Red, I can't stop believing that we could do it whilst it's still in our hands. A bit of luck, a bounce of a ball, that might be all it takes. Get a win on Monday and everything changes.

    • Good post, @BluebirdinExile. We do have a manager who knows how to grind out results, but the players don't seem to be following his instructions lately! This is the sort of game that makes me glad I don't bet on results, because I have no idea what'll actually happen. We're hopelessly inconsistent atm.
    • Hi all, Cardiff fan in peace always had a soft spot for Boro ever since seeing your support in Cardiff early doors in the FA cup in the 90's.     Anyway after reading some comments about it will be a walk in a park for Cardiff, I dont think it will be.  We are beginning to look tired, we are not used to the high press we are currently playing at the moment, if the scores are remaining level after 70 mins then I can see you sneaking something. You have a manager who knows how to grind out results in this division, so its not all doom and gloom for you.   Anyway i hope we win on Saturday, but after that I hope you at least make the playoffs.    All the best to you 👍
    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.
