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.

    • Excited by Gibson and in particular Benkovic who is very highly rated by many in European football. The concern which has been raised by a few people in this thread is why invest significant money on these loan deals when this season in all likeliness will end up as a dead rubber season. I would much rather have Gibson, Benkovic and that caliber player next season if we are going to make a push for the playoffs.
    • We won't be going up this season and we won't be going down. I just hope all these loans have a 12 month extension or automatic buy option, otherwise we are just throwing good money after bad.
    • The problem I see is that we could still leave ourselves hanging if we want two and only sign one. It definitely feels like we could do with a couple of quality additions at the back. And if Gibson goes to the wire, we could leave ourselves in the lurch as our other targets, ones not just us are after, will move elsewhere. The lad from Leicester in particular seems like someone with a bright future and a decent career so far too, I'd be disappointed to see us miss out on signing him because we sign Simpson and we throw everything at getting Gibson and falter. I know some on here have switched off already for this season but I absolutely want to see us go for it so long as we can. I see very little point in switching off so long as we don't kill off our summer plans by doing so, let's finish as high as we possibly can and hey, even top 10 would be something after our start to this year. So yeah, I'm sceptical of Gibson signing without any cheap permanent by the end of it but by all means, get as much quality in as we can and give it a go.
    • D Blackburn  v  Q.P.R. H Brentford  v  N/Forest. (no scorer.) A Cardiff  v  W.B.A. H Hull Cty  v  Huddersfield. H Leeds  v  Millwall. A Luton  v  Derby. A Wigan  v  Sheff Wednesday. H Reading  v  Bristol City A Tranmere  v  Sunderland.. D Rotherham  v  Ipswich Twn.
    • I am not saying this because it seems the Gibson deal might be drifting away from us but I am quite relaxed about the whole situation. i think the reason for that is we seem to be eyeing some decent alternatives in Benkovic and Simpson who both come with a lot of promise. For once we not put all our eggs in one basket. I know club are looking at two CBs but if we get 1 of the above 3 in I will be happy with that. if we dont get either of the 3 then I will start to worry. Oh and i still got hopes our beloved boro will make a out the blue type signing for the top end of the pitch. Ideally more Lee Tomlin out the blue and less Adlene Guidioura out the blue.
