Boro vs PNE (a) 3-2 (Ayala (2), Howson)

Recommended Posts

According to Mandi's twitter it looks like her and Clayts are off out tonight so he hasn't traveled with the squad.

-Pulis specifically mentioned the speed of forward passing, so I expect Baker might be in the team tomorrow.

Is a full back playing a 40 yd ball to a forward to lay off to someone now hoofball

isn't that how Jack Charlton played it? Long ball over the top for Foggon to run on to. Hoofball? you tell me.

Looks like he’s giving everyone a chance to stake a claim

Still feel that points are important especially when we have come to the usual period of lack of points gained so is Pulis playing a dangerous game by changing the team too much?

 

Of course he has to look and evaluate, but to the cost of points?

 

Mind you we are usually pointless in the January period it will not make much of a difference I suppose!

Gut feeling is we'll get beat today, we've had a day less rest than Preston and a lot of our players looked tired on Saturday.

 

Think it's gonna be a few weeks until we start to see genuine improvement.

Can see Pulis ringing the changes today. Can see it happening for a month or so with us having pretty bad results, but this season is almost a write off anyway. I'm going for an edgy 1-1 draw Gestede FGS

If Pulis is here to rebuild for next season.  I would be a happy with a point today . 

Would like to see him get ontop of our failed midfielders right across from left to right we haven't got a decent midfielder that can produce consistantly week in week out for our mass of forwards.  

There surely has to be some good prospects coming through in the youth team why not give them a try he has nothing to lose. 

Or is our youth squad not producing these days like many other clubs are we not bothered about bedding our youth players into our first team.

Just selling them and loaning them out to lower clubs. 

The last good one was Fry and that I believe was 2 seasons ago. He is not being selected on a regular basis and for what I have seen of the lad he is far better than some of the players we have laid out good money for over the past few seasons. 

 

He also must realise how important it is that we win this coming Saturday.

He must try at least give Boro a decent FA Cup run if our season is over in the Championship.

If Pulis is 'here to build for next season' then, I'm sorry, I'd have rather stuck with Monk. We were 3 points off the play offs when we sacked him, so to write off the season now because of a new manager is unforgivable.

 

Pulis should be getting us into the Top 6. Anything below that is abject failure.

I would like to think he could put us in the playoffs at the end of the season. Hell I would like to think he could still get us automatic promo:.

But I honestly believe it will take alot of work and alot of change.

Perhaps he can do it.

Lets hope shall we.

There's no possible situation where I'd rather have kept Monk.

 

I think it will take a bit of time for Pulis to get us playing how he wants but I'm confident he'll get us in the playoffs.

    • Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview. 
    • Just got back (found a nice pub after the game). Eerily similar to the spurs game earlier in the week. Preposterous first half full of errors, lying deep and conceding the midfield. Second half was end to end. Boro supporters in full voice, home fans mustering little. Roberts was excellent, he didn't stop running. Fulham looked dead good though, It took us a full half until we could scare them. I'd like to think a draw would have been fair but I think Fulham were just better (and so they should be). Onwards and upwards.
    • I always thought Reece Oxford was a DM? I swear that’s when he played in that game against arsenal.
    • Woodgate also said that he would have loved to have played a back 4 tonight obviously couldn’t since we only have 1 for centre half.    Personally think Woody wants to go back to the original plan of 4-3-3 as soon as he possibly can.
