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

Recommended Posts

We're not better defensively under Pulis no matter how often people repeat it. Right now it's simply not true. We weren't conceding that often under Monk really. We've arguably become more defensive under Pulis with the switch from Christie to Shotton at right back but this hasn't resulted in us conceding fewer goals really. Maybe it will over time but not so far.

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.

 

I could get on board with that in the Prem to an extend but being one of the best resourced clubs in the championship I’m demanding more.

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.

 

Yes! hic 

 

hmm

Is it easy to translate nice football into ugly football between divisions? I'm not so sure but I might be wrong. Bournemouth and Burnley come to mind in that what took them up has pretty much kept them up and neither has changed tack.

Monks last 7 league games we conceded 10 goal.

Pulis first 7 league games we conceded 6

We’ve improved a bit(well conceded less) :)

Why are we only looking at 7 games?

 

Monk managed us for 23 league games in total.  We scored 30 (1.3 pg) and conceded 23 (1.0 pg).  Pulis so far has managed us for 7 league games in total.  We have scored 8 (1.14 pg) and conceded 6 (0.86 pg).  Essentially what we gained from one we've lost from another but there's no way anyone can state there's been a significant change in our defensive record so far.  Maybe by the end of the season it will be but not just yet.

 

Monk in his 23 games gained 35 points (1.52 pg).  Pulis from his 7 games so far has 10 points (1.43 pg).  If we'd actually improved don't you think we'd have climbed the table?  We were 9th when Monk was sacked, we're 9th today.  We were 3 points outside the play offs when Monk was sacked, today we're 4 points outside the play offs. 

 

Yeah, take that Pulis haters!   :huh: :dodgy:

Keith has a degree in Maths.

He taught it for a few years.

But it all ended badly.

    • Not to prolong the point for too long as last night exhausted me so much so that I want to frankly rid politics and politicians from the system for a couple of years, right now... 😂 but the proposed funding for the NHS doesn't stack up. Admittedly, contrary to what some on the left say, I'm pretty sure the Tories recently have been putting more in even in real terms and that's all well and good... but the NHS is becoming more expensive due to the ageing population without even considering the strain that the level of funding is putting on workers, especially with little to no financial reward from it. It's one of the best things about our country and for it to remain that way, we have to fund it more than we ever have. I'd frankly throw a lot of the nationalisation policies in the bin if it meant we just gave the NHS the money it needed to keep being great. If as I suspect, we do enter into a trade deal with the US with anything to do with health on the table, that number will rise even more. Tories are more likely to make tax cuts than ask for more tax to pay for anything so by that measure, the lowest rungs on the societal ladder of our country will fall off first. The NHS, mental health, social care, etc. there's not enough going in to solve these problems. Labour's spending plans were through the roof but the Tories are barely spending anything at all based on their plans. I was listening to Mark Francois on LBC the other week talking to a fella with a wife and 2 kids who looks after both his now disabled parents as a carer so their only income is his carer's allowance and his wife's job, £14k for looking after children with special needs, something like £18k overall? He asks Francois what the Tories will do for him and the best he can come up with is that over time, he'll be able to keep more of his money from tax. I sincerely worry for people like that who contribute so much in a very small, localised circle getting little support from this government. It genuinely makes me sad that people who can't do anything but put a brave face on every day and just get by get nothing in return for it.
    • I mean, I know it's pretty difficult to trust any politician, especially Johnson, but the NHS and improving it was like the first key point (after Brexit obviously) that he talked about, so fingers crossed he actually legitimately sticks to what he said in his speech, because I didn't disagree with any of it. Now I suppose we just have to wait and see..
