Boro vs. QPR (A) 3-0 (Ayala, Friend, Traore)


Recommended Posts

Can we just play all of our remaining games away from home we seem to have our tactics nailed on. Great result but only Leeds seem to have slipped up badly today, shame.

 

well Bristol lost point yesterday and wolves lost today (but I guess we dont think we can reach them?)

 

Just have to keep going but the issue for us, as it has been all season, is going to be our ability to take points of those teams in and around us.  I think we've only played twice against Villa, Preston and Fulham of those teams so we still have games remaining to make ground on our rivals.  If we get on a good run then anything is possible.

Just returning to the important topic of the day, I was wondering the same thing about Rudy's name. I actually have a programme from Cardiff from 2013 when he played for them, which has him listed as Rudolphe Gestede.

 

Edit: Transfermarkt has his name as Rudolphe Philippe Michel Camille Gestede, so there you go.

 

Camille is great.

 

You learn something new every day!

Thanks Tom, it's good to know that some people are not just interested in what Karanka's up to or who hates which Boro players the most. :D

 

Rudy has to be short for Rudolph, I'm sure that Tom is short for Thomas, people don't christen their kids Steve or Bob, it's Steven or Robert. By the way did you know that Daisy is short for Margaret?

Yeh terrible record against the teams above us, that's been one of the main the problems this season.

My neighbour is a Tom. A genuine, birth certificate Tom.

As a result, he calls me 'Thomas' which always makes it seem like he's telling me off.

Rudy originally will have been a shortened version of Rudolph but I'm pretty sure it's a name in itself now and some girls have it, which I doubt is a shortened version of Rudolph.

 

Tom is actually short for BoroTom.

 

Did I mention how prolific Traore is nowadays?  Great to see.

Adama is the long form of the original boy's name Adam.

You're mistaken.  It's the shortened version of Adam Ant.  Adama's parents were big fans of the 80's pop maestro.

    • 1. Was it Malley that was highly rated a year or two ago? If it was I'd give him a go alongside Howson. I'd also give Coulson a run a leftback, we know what Bola is all about, and under JW Coulson seemed to be on an upward trajectory. If he puts in 5 good performances maybe we can keep him as cover for Bola and not worry about needing to sign leftback cover in the summer. Archer Fisher, Hall, McNair ,Coulson Howson, Malley Kebano, Watmore, Bolasie Akpom 1a. No idea, pesky Romans. 2. Negredo purely because at the time he seemed the perfect striker for Aitor's system (that he used during the promotion season). Valdes is worth a shout just because of his previous experience in the game and what he had won. 3. Who knows, but if we finish lower than 9th next season, that would be pretty bad.
    • Amber list countries then, if he has to quarantine. 
    • Thats exactly what it is, if you are negotiating with someone you need to be in a strong enough position to walk away and move onto an alternative.  I think this proposal is just that at the moment, these big European clubs will be prepared to start this alternative format if they can get away with it but I think the ultimate goal is to have more power and control within the current structure. And obviously more share of the financial pie as well.  They are acting like a cartel and its up to the governing bodies and other clubs to make sure they don't get away with it.  I made a point yesterday that this isn't a sudden thing, this balance of power has been gradually tipping since the Billionaires started getting involved with clubs in 2003. Wouldnt it be brilliant if other clubs declared all out war on these big super clubs?  I'd love to see the other 86 clubs in the football league threaten to break away from the current system. Start things up again and have a new league without the big 6, if they want to apply to join they'll have to start at the bottom of the pyramid and I mean the very bottom.  Let's rid football of FIFA and have a new, open and transparent organisation that gets rid of the corrupt scumbags there now. Have fan owned clubs like they have in Germany to prevent things like this happening in the future and have a domestic scene similar to Germany with realistic ticket prices and sensible kickoff times.  Part of me hopes this super league happens because that might be the catalyst for the bubble to burst and return the game to the fans.  Even if it means clubs having to start from scratch again.  I don't want a global super league where clubs are franchised from Liverpool to Singapore and I don't think fans in our country want that either. I think Liverpool fans for example would rather get behind a new team at an amateur level and watch them climb through the leagues again. It would be like a version of AFC Wimbledon but on a much larger scale. If it was a choice as well I think I'd rather the Boro went to the wall than be sucked into this new version of football. 
    • Completely see your point, but I don't think that's true. The reputational damage these clubs have suffered will endure for years. Share prices might have jumped yesterday on the back of overseas stock market traders who regard football clubs as nothing more than tradeable commodities, but these clubs will be viewed with suspicion in future by many players and managers. They might struggle to attract the same levels of attendance/merch sales/marquee signings in the coming years as clubs untainted by this scandal like Bayern, PSG, et al. I'm not suggesting Burnley or the Skunks will do well out of this, but my best friend has been a Man City fan for a quarter of a century and now wants nothing to do with them. That's not just him lost to them, but me (as his matchday companion), any kids he has, etc. These things take time to percolate through, but in the long term, I doubt the 'big six' PL clubs are going to win whatever happens.
    • Haha fair point guys, apologies for some reason I thought it was today.
