What about that Uruguayan striker banging them in in Spain?

 

Pretty sure he'd be better as a RW...

He got booed when he played for us.

If only Pulis had a striker of Stuani's quality now!. Doubt TP would play him on the wing

Why not? He’s playing with an even worse striker on the wing.

That's because he wasn't that good for us.

He was actually alright, he just never got played in his best position.

He offered very little as a winger because, like you say, he wasn't a winger. Considering that though, scored some really important goals and still find it remarkable that we never used him up front more often than we did.

That may be true but people couldn't judge him on performances he might have produced in a position he could/should have played in.  They judged him on his actual performances, which weren't that good, even though we will almost certainly see some revisionism taking place because he's now doing well somewhere else.  7 goals in the Championship with 1 assist, 4 goals in the Premier League with 0 assists.  He has scored more in 19 games with Girona than he did in his two seasons with us.  Braithwaite by comparison had 5 goals and 2 assists before we shipped him back out.

Yeah but I preferred Stuani, I saw in him what an awful lot of others didn’t see, he could finish, Man he really could.

 

If I remember rightly, he got us promoted too, I can’t think of many others that have done that in the last decade. ;)

I think he was the best finisher at the club in his time here as I said quite often. But he wasn't played up front and perhaps wouldn't have been as suited to it in English football - I assume that's why Karanka didn't really give him a go there for any length of time.

La Liga isn't as physical as the Premier League or Championship, so that allows Stuani to lead the line for Girona.

 

Pleased for him, but I don't think we missed out on this one.

I think the vast majority of fans watching him every week could see he didn't have the attributes to play as a wide man. He wasn't fast, he couldn't cross or go past players and he stifled our creativity down whichever side he was playing. He scored a lot of goals in and around the box. He read the game game well, could strike a ball well and wasn't afraid to work hard or get physical. Everything you need to thrive as a Championship striker.

And he didn't wear a gumshield like Kei Kamara.

    • Yes I would agree with this if mid table like a month ago but as now we are heading league one we have to cut losses sack Woodgate get a Warnock in to keep us in the Championship. As if we get league one football it's a very long way back!
    • I enjoyed the game tonight tbh, despite it being freezing. I thought we went toe to toe with Leeds for the most part and could have quite easily nicked a goal or maybe even two on a different night. I'm not ready to completely write Woodgate off just yet - I think until he's had a proper chance to balance the squad to his liking over the summer & also get rid of all the various high earners (who've been pretty uninspired for several managers over several years now), it's kinda difficult to judge the poor bugger. He's clearly not doing a fantastic job, but I think a lot of managers would have struggled with us this season - espescially given the task of relying on youth and completely overhauling the playing style, but with pretty much the same core group.. All the young players will be a season better next year and hopefully the same will go for Woodgate. Assuming we make some positive moves/changes to the squad over the summer, we can start to build from there. Although I appreciate that it's fashionable to be negative on this forum, so with that said; Woodgate out!
    • The Forrest games on Monday this gives the club a long weekend of double training sessions. As honestly Gibson needs to say Woodgate will you resign if he doesn't sack him then get a Warnock in who be here 9am this morning getting them players drilled for 4 days. I reckon if this happened by Monday night the Boro will be transformed and may beat Forrest. But nope this won't happen the players will laze around for 4 days doing pre season like drills then stuffer another L on Sky. I don't actually think Boro have won a game live on Sky this year
    • Don't really want to see George  playing for us anymore, he has lost it totally. Food for thought I do not imagine for one moment that Ben Gibson will be donning a Boro shirt if we do go down
    • 352 britt and fletcher up front, howson or spence rwb, tav in the middle where he was doing well.
