Boro v Sheffield Wednesday 0-0

If you have a chance and don't score, you could have done better.

 

What if you don't have a chance and you still score like Jay-Z with Beyonce?

 

Women and football's both love confidence and conviction, we weren't giving our football much of either yesterday.

I said during the game I thought the Bamford chance was difficult and I fully acknowledge that HOWEVER I do think he should have still hit the target, realistically.

 

britts header maybe I need to see again cause it looked inch perfect for him and then he just heads it straight at the keeper. maybe it was more difficult than that but I'm not sold.

 

Id have been unhappy if I hadn’t got that shot on target so a very expensive forward should be doing better. We can say his and britts chances weren’t easy but top forwards should at least be scoring a reasonable percentage of this chances

Well in my eyes when you only have the keeper to beat well inside the box it’s a clear cut chance.

They aren't top forwards.

 

Not getting into that argument , depends on your criteria for top. But I’d say £22 million for two forwards makes them top players if not top in the world then certainly top in the fourth biggest league in the world

I'm not a top forward but I'd be fuming and consider that a clear cut chance in a 7 a side goal at marton sports village on a Thursday night.

In isolation I don’t think you’d expect and of those chances to be scored. But if you saw our 5/6 best chances with the players we have then I feel you really would EXPECT at least one to be scored

At this level i'd say they are.

They definitely are at this level.

What does the level they are at have to do with it? A chance is a chance, it's not a different level of difficulty depending on whether you're in the Premier League or playing for a pub team. You're saying that Bamford should have spun around and hit a shot with his weaker foot whilst stretching and that it was a nailed on chance? It's just not realistic to think that way. Maybe top players with more ability can pull that sort of thing of as routine but that isn't Bamford and regardless of his transfer fee that definitely isn't Assombalonga. I think maybe some people are trying too hard to talk up the start of Pulis' time here, which is exactly what happened at the beginning of Monks tenure. We weren't very good last night and we didn't create a host of clear cut chances. It might make us feel more optimistic to say that we did and thus place the blame on the players but it's just not how it happened.

I thought we were talking about Bamfords first half header not his second half shot

I have no idea.  I was earlier but then it seemed like other people were talking about the second half shot.   *** knows, I've given up trying to educate you lot anyway.  I hate you all!!! :@

Who is trying to talk up yesterday? You keep trying to make the same point. I haven't heard anyone say we played well.

 

There was a poster asking if we looked like turning the draws into wins, on chances alone you could argue we did. Thats completely different to suggesting we played well.

aye I'm not trying to talk it up, pulis ain't me dad I owe him nothing to sugar coat the performances, did we create enough chances to win the game though, yes.

Talking it up by making out that we created more and better chances than we actually did. That despite playing poorly we still should have done such and such. Like I said, you in particular would not be saying the same things if Monk had been in charge of that game last night. You know you wouldn't and I understand why you are and why it's different but I genuinely can't see what was better last night than say Fulham, where we actually did create some clear cut chances. I mean a few weeks back we beat Sheff Wed at their place with Monk in charge. We beat Ipswich and Bolton at home as well. What was there to be optimistic about in any real way last night? I just don't see it, I don't see what corner is being turned. Until we have a properly functioning attack, I will hold the same opinion. It's just how it is for me anyway.

    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
    • If you dont mind a short drive get yourself booked into Art La Vey up towards Newcastle. That guy is head and shoulders above most in Boro. Mark at Nothingsacred in Stockton is class if you're wanting some dotwork done

    • Knowing the quality of the Daily Fail, they probably have Fulham as the Premiership club wanting him. It boils down to the lad's views on his future, his contract ends there ends in the summer, so everything in his hands, If he does not fancy move, then "agreement on terms could not be reached. If he wants away, not a lot we can do to stop him but there are not that many top rem teams looking for keepers, so it should be fairly easy to work out likely suspects, assuming not jut agent talk trying to get us to make decent offer in future
