Boro vs. Brighton (FA Cup) 0-1


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the Ramirez insight. I knew about the Bton bit (was there - TBH I was unaware of it at the time, and seeing it after, couldn't see a problem with Ramirez!)

 

Yeah Stephens did take a chunk out of Ramirez's leg to be fair!

Ramirez also made that very clear to the ref, pointong to his leg and even hit the yellow card out of the refs hand ;)

Hope it’s a good match today and that we are up for the cup. Come on Boro.

 

I’m really counting on the team to be up for it from kickoff. Our slow starts should be one of the things that Pulis should have as priority.

Is CH in danger of losing his job if we were to beat Brighton?

 

I wouldn't say so he's done a great job with them and there's only 3 points between 10th and 17th at the minute it's probably the tightest it's been at the bottom of the prem for a while.

 

The gap between the top 6 or 7 and rest of the league just seems to get bigger and bigger each season but you never know football's a funny game, don't know too much about Brightons ownership and their record with managers.

Don’t think so. They probably can’t attract anyone much better without taking a huge gamble and top championship ship clubs knock out lower Prem opposition plenty of times. It’s not a big upset.

If Hughton keeps them in the PL he's done an excellent job, I didn't expect anything else but a struggle, its much the same as us last season.

With all the speculation about Braithwaite although not very concrete I’m waiting to see the lineup today with anticipation. Wouldn’t mind resting Downing and starting Braithwaite in the middle.

    • If Smith signs i would imagine he would certainly be arriving as back up and not main striker. Secondly 10 goals and 3 assists for the team that finished 2nd bottom in league imo is not the worst record. Yes he wont get pulses raising but Kieffer Moore hit 10 goals for struggling Wigan last season and in a better team his return was better and we (whether people like NW or not) are better than Rotherham. I am not for one second suggesting Smith will score 20 goals for us like Moore has for Cardiff but he would not be worst back up target man if that is what he arrives as given his numbers last season.
    • 224 but ran out of time 🤦‍♂️ It felt like I spent 5 mins just trying to remember Mark Summerbell's name, which wouldn't be so bad but he wasn't the person I was even trying to remember.  I was actually thinking about Steve Baker and the League Cup semi final against Liverpool when he did that man-marking job on Steve McManaman.  I think Summerbell was the lad who was going out with one of Robson's daughters while he was playing for us?  Quite a few I didn't get from the last 5 years or so really.  Didn't even get a couple from the current squad 🤭
    • Doesn't even hold him in high enough regard to tell him the truth about his future when he signs a contract waiver, according to Downing. I imagine that feeling is, or at least was, more than mutual.
    • Maybe we can now put that statue up of Downing which Pulis thought he deserved. Albeit I don't think Steve quite holds Downing in such high regards as he used to
    • "Rotherham United's Michael Smith is someone who is thought to have impressed Warnock and ticks several of the boxes of what the boss is looking for up-top." Worried next season will be an even tougher watch, can't say I've seen much of him like but average record and presumably a donkey type?
