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?

They have Cellino anything is likely. Mind you he must be relieved Cellino he promised Leeds season ticket holders 25% refunds if they got promoted.

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).

 

I agree but i dont think we are good enough to survive so id argue the maximum he could do was get them players fired up for it...

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.

 

I have got absolutely nothing against Agnew but I think 'give him a chance' is not the answer. There's too much at stake. We gave Southgate a chance, and AK a chance... We're a football club, not a job-creation scheme.

I had a good feeling after seeing City's lineup, Navas at the back, Garcia playing (bit of an insult to us really) and Gabriel Jesus rushed back. Those poor decisions from Pep certainly gave us a reasonable advantage today for the first 48 minutes.

 

Very glad we took our chances and I can't fault anyone today apart from Stuani who had an absolute mare. Downing & Forshaw in particular stepped up despite being disappointing recently, shame Stewie hasn't worked on his final delivery.

 

Glad we're going down with a fight, but as the saying goes 'it's the hope that kills you' so it feels pretty raw dropping those points.

 

As for Sané, a career ender in his next game might be a bit too lenient.

Proud of the whole effort of the team!

It was obvious the Stuani substitution should have been made 5-0 before hand.

Thought De Roon was excellent throughout!

 

Let's hope we keep the majority of this squad together for next season, and just add flair to the midfield and attack.

 

Players who will leave Gibson, Ramirez, Valdes, Chambers and Negredo.

Sky Sports have given De Roon a 5 for today's performance. I can only assume they didn't watch the game and heard he gave away a penalty. He won the ball back on 4 occasions in the first half I can recall of and was the main midfielder who looked to thread forward passes and try a few shots.

Brilliant again today. Need to do everything we can to hold onto him.

Yep, thought De Roon was excellent.

 

Thought Chambers was MOTM, Gibson & Negredo both great too.

 

I do wonder whether Guzan could have done more on the 2nd goal, he seemed very flat footed, but that's being very harsh on him when he had an otherwise really good game too.

    • 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. 
    • Check out the love between Crooks & Payero. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
