Boro v Hull City 3-1 (Gestede (2) Bamford)

Recommended Posts

YIPPEE!

 

Not quite a storming win but a win nonetheless.  Not a game we could really afford to drop points in so thankfully job done  :relief: :fist:

3 observations tonight:

 

1. Don't think we played great but nice to see a comfortable win.

 

2. I think we look a long way from being a potential promotion team.

 

3. Bamford is the best striker we've got at the club, he looks useless on the left but then looks like the coolest man on the pitch when he's in front of goal.

1 - Indeed although it might have been different had we been playing against anyone even semi-decent.

 

2 - Indeed.

 

3 - Indeed.

Relief, embarrassment averted. May well sneak into the playoffs and spring a surprise promotion. OK, that was over optimistic, but maybe just maybe..

With the incredibly low standard of the league this year it really wouldn't surprise me if we make the playoffs.

With a bit of luck we could somehow find ourselves in the playoffs saturday evening (providing we can actually beat sunderland). Tricky upcoming games for Bristol and Sheffield have two awaygames on the spin.

What does concern me is the win one and lose one sequence, had a look at previous results and was shocked to see that we have only drawn once in 23 games, if only we could have had a few draws in a***st those defeats!

 

Also now is not the time to start drawing games the winning sequence simply has to continue though kinda mindful that we could get a draw on Saturday

Think Besic looked really good game last night, proper dynamic midfield performance. Think Leadbitter was a bit anonymous, would like to see a midfield 2 of Besic and Howson going forward.

Yeah same think Besic can do the Leadbitter role, which may free up Howson to get forward. Would like to see Besic/Howson from here on out.

Should find out today or tomorrow if Gestede has any lasting damage to his ankle or if it was just a knock he could hardly walk off at the end of the match

I'd say the justification of the decisions he made were in the end result. It's no different between the games we've drew or lost, he takes responsibility. I don't agree with the changes we made, both before(Howson) and during the game. But he got the points quite comfortably so he certainly didn't get it wrong.

    • I was just reading over the summer transfer window thread and I had one or two things to say about this in the summer 😡😀 I also found these two old posts of mine which I feel deserve to be highlighted for their prescience: From the 25th of June: I suspect that if Woodgate intends on us being a pressing / passing team (or whatever his intentions may be for us), that the majority of the players who are already here will be the players playing the bulk of the games.  I think we also have to consider that we must be desperate to get rid of some players and maybe we need to do that first before we sign their replacements?  And you've got to think that the likes of McNair, Tavernier and Fletcher are going to be used a lot more.  I wouldn't say they are like new signings or anything like that but I would see McNair as an obvious replacement for Besic and Tavernier to be used possibly in a variety of ways.  Fletcher takes one of the wide attacking positions and what are we looking for, another wide attacker and a full back or two?  I'm not saying that's how I'm looking at it, I'm just trying to look at it from the club's point of view.  So if we're only looking for a few players then things are more likely to be quiet as compared to previous windows. And even earlier on the 14th of June: It's part of our new philosophy.  Instead of having loads of right backs and one left back we are going to have loads of left backs and one right back. It's all change at Boro.   Absolutely nailed it, hurrah! ✌️ People really need to stop arguing with me now and just accept that I'm always right.
    • I think its, we're having to throw young players in desperate to make an impression and overdoing it
    • The bulk of the money the club owes is to Gibson O'Neill so he won't be putting us into administration.  Our outgoings are too high and really administration isn't going to help much with that.  We either have to reduce costs or increase revenue.  It's easier to do the former than the latter although selling some players will obviously help with that.  That's what we're doing at the moment.
    • The possibility that Gibbo is gradually winding things up in preparation for administration has occurred to me. I've been trying to push the thought away since the summer. There has been a lot of "woe is me, I've been doing everything by the rules and all these other mean clubs are cheating and making it impossible for us to compete financially" stuff coming out since last Spring. If he spins a good enough tale then a lot of fans will still see him as a hero for saving the club in 86 and giving them all these extra years. We get annoyed on here about all the lies and spin which come out of the club, but there are a lot of fans who lap it all up and believe everything they are told.
