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.

    • Sorry, it wasn't an automatic increase to his salary, it was an automatic extension on his same salary.  
    • Hi, sorry I've been busy with work the past few days. Probably easier if Marvin throws something together. Sorry about that!
    • We've signed decent players, sure. But whens the last time we signed a player, got something out of them and they went on to play at a higher level due to his time with us? I'm really struggling to think of any since we've been relegated. Which is pretty damning in itself
    • In fairness and on reflection, we have actually signed some good players in recent times . I think the problem is either getting the best out of them OR playing these players in positions and systems which don’t fit them so that they under perform. I’ve said it before but I really really hope that who ever we sign actually fits into 2 formations that we are aiming to play. If we sign Jordan Rhodes and play him up front again I’ll flip 🤣 and it will show we haven’t learnt from our mistakes. 
    • It was inclusive of the end of his Boro career, surrounding the contract situation which stopped Pulis from starting him, even bringing him on in the first half on occasion. He said something along the lines of having a gentleman's agreement for a new contract that led him to waiving the automatic increase to his salary so he could play again... then the new contract never came.
