Boro V Reading 2-1 (Traore (2) Britt misses penalty)

In what way is Tony Pulis an arrogant person?

 

He demands everyone bow to him whenever he enters a room.  Even at home.

 

He also got his wife a full wall mural of himself in their living room for Christmas.

 

I hope that's true :D

 

Naked but still wearing his cap?

There are a 101 different ways of setting up and playing the game. I'm no professional coach but i recognise a talented bunch of players at this level when i see one and individually we have a squad of very talented Championship players.

 

FWIW between Bamford, Britt and Gestede we have a strikeforce that should be the envy of the league. Does any other team have close to that level of talent on form? I think there'd be few that can hold a candle.

 

If you read back a few pages I think you’ll find gestede and bamford are useless

 

Useless on a good day played the Pullis way, Gestede was probably the reason Rhodes ran amock with goals at Blackburn, Bamford played his best as a lone striker for us and Britt has enough goals already and previous form  to show he has it when the attack is lined up top supply him the ammo, but for us they are all useless when played the way pullis wants to play - I believe we should play Gestede alongside Britt and they would compliment each other - Paddy still needs to find his form as he has been useless at best in front of goal but if the other two click and start scoring it will give Paddy the chance to come on without the pressue and hopefully find his past form.

I, once again agree with Humpty, if those three were played correctly to their strengths then Championship defences should be terrified instead of strolling around laughing at us. 

I'm no football manager but I can spot an arrogant, stubborn man who won't change his ways when I see one and I see one in charge at Boro.

The fact he hasn't shored the defence up even though hes sacrificed attacking players to do so in his line up since he joined is worrying seeing as hes touted as this defensive mastermind, then theres our attack or complete lack thereof - how lucky is Pullis that the real Traore is finally turning up because if not for him Sat would have been another loss and they were woeful.

 

So it's Pulis to blame for the strikers being out of form but when Traore finds his form Pulis is lucky?

With his willy replaced by Peter Crouch to serve as a subtle brag and also a hint to Gibson

Based on what we've seen so far, I don't think 'ugly wins' are going to be joined by any other kind of win under Pulis. As long as we do win, I don't really mind. A win is a win.

Pulis is here to address more than the playing squad.

 

He is making us fit for the long term. Weeding out the unnecessary things, im sure that's what was said when he came on board? Assessing Boro?

 

If players wanted to leave in January, why would he want to work with them? Let them go. The squad is much better for it.

 

I like Pulis and the fact he sticks to his principles. Like Karanka, defensively we are better. We lose games because we don't take our chances rather than defensive errors. Hopefully when they do take their chances it will be a winning formula.

 

The irony is that only Gestede fits his system but the goalscoring chances would be scored if they want to Bamford or Britt more often than not.

 

Keep the faith. Play offs this season and then Britt can be a hero when he scores the winner at Wembley via a Bamford throughball.

Some of these ugly wins have been proper 12 pinters though at the very least. You have to draw a line somewhere surely?

    • Yes it does. Seems like the Belgian league pulled the trigger too soon because they have been summoned into a meeting with uefa after uefa said they would ban clubs for next season if the leagues were cancelled. 
    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
