Boro v Manchester City 2-2


Recommended Posts

Id just like to say to anyone that never gave Agnew a chance since the start just look at the squad now compared to Karanka (i know agnew makes mistakes also isnt perfect but look at the belief and fight from them players). What a performance shame city are cheats, Id take them kind of performances to the end of the season even if we dont win any of them.

One decent performance doesn't hide the fact that Agnew is out of his depth and not good enough, that said excellent performance by all the boro players today

 

Maybe he just needed a few games to adapt to management, he hasn't done his chances any harm today.

Honestly - I don't know whether to be pleased or annoyed.

 

Where the *** have this Boro been all season?

 

If we had shown half the endeavour and commitment we have in this game, we wouldn't be staring at relegation.

My thoughts exactly. Poor penalty decision and we slept in for the 2nd but an excellent performance by everyone on the pitch. If only...

I agree with what your saying and 3 more performances like today will certainly give Gibson something to think about.

Personally though I'd like to move in a different direction with a new coach with fresh ideas and approach

One good performance in what? about 8 games and he's suddenly the man to take us forward.

 

Are you going to trust him in the transfer market in the summer when he has no previous experience in buying players. I don't think he'll be able to attract players here either.

Good result but let's not confuse managerial nous with a team that was fired up to prevent relegation, at the eleventh hour.

 

Agnew might be okay, but I've had enough of handing the most important job at the club to a rookie manager and then waiting for him to learn on the job. It's about time we employed someone with a proven track record (and no, I do not mean Strachan).

How many goals Boro had since Agnew took charge??

 

8 in 8

 

was 19 in 27 under Karanka

 

According to reports, monk is about to get the flick at leeds. Just saying

 

Serious? Wasn't this their best season in years?

The poor guy can't do anything right. I'm sure that had we lost, Agnew would have been blamed. I'm not saying that he is the best choice to take us forward, but give him a chance.

    • Not sure I agree with that. If it was a race and we were leading Derby until the final lap and then tripped over our own shoelaces, and that that's the only reason they finished ahead of us, obviously it's our fault that we didn't beat them. But if it then turned out that Derby were on performance enhancing drugs they'd have been disqualified even though it was ultimately our own actions that cost us the race. Obviously their massive coordinate cheating of FFP would be the performance enhancing drugs.   Pulis *** up massively to cost us a play-off spot that looked assured, but the only team that was even close to us outside of the top 5 were a Derby side that cheated consistently. The team in 8th were 3 points behind us, the team in 9th were 7.
    • 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.
