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

Recommended Posts

That was a cracking performance and Adama did indeed score as I predicted. We seem to be getting better by the week. And that’s not happened since we were last in this league. We don’t panic. We keep trying to move forward. And we are trying shots a lot more.

 

I’m chuffed the Sheff Wed game is midweek. Get the atmosphere cranked up. And build on all these away wins.

Anything else you have a problem with?  Might as well get it all out now.

 

I'm quite hungover still and my head is banging. Is it time for wine yet?

Was dumbfounded when I saw Traore on the scoresheet, and having seen the goal, it's a wonderful bit of play. We finally have a player who generates that fear factor!

Great day out, Boro fans in full voice, wonderful goals and Adama getting his first goal and boy did his team mates congratulate him.

 

Howson I thought was very good

Howson MOM for me He doesn’t clatter into tackles but he seems to nick the ball a lot and at times today he was everywhere

Great win today. Delighted to see Traore getting off the mark. It can only do his confidence the world of good

I don't think I've ever wanted someone to get a goal as much as Traore. Granted its been longer than expected and I still have my reservations but he seems really likeable and proper chuffed to be playing well

Over the years oh how I have seen friend strike them balls to only go sky high so today to see both friend score a ‘wonder’ goal and traore get off the mark with a very good composed goal makes this probably the best away London game I’ve been too in years!!

Enjoyed it so much and we are really looking a strong solid unit under Pulis.....

Personal goal is playoffs and currently I now feel we can give any team in this league a good game so come on Boro let’s make a push and start developing that team that people are fearing to play against in the play off finals. UTB

My predication Wolves, Derby top 2 and Boro prompted after winning against Villa at Wembley.

So is it 4-4-2? Or is it Bamford out wide? Anyone watching able to say?

 

Bamford appears to be on the left, Downing actually looks like he may be playing CM at the minute he's coming so deep, but I can't tell if that's intentional or because we can't get our foot on the ball.

 

EDIT: As I post that he's now popping up on the right and Downing is slightly further forward, so I actually have no idea now.

 

Think Traore has gone left so think Traore/Bamford are the wide players.

 

I lost internet and then went out, so late to reply - but Thanks Brunners! +1 when I'm home.

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.

 

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?

 

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.

 

Traore, he scores when he wants.

just looking at the table, we average 2 points a game from now we finish on 80 points. That gets us into play offs no bother. we can still do it having a bit of faith in us again now we have a real manager and leader in pulis.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
