Boro v Brentford (A) 1-1 (Traore)


Recommended Posts

Ayala a major doubt hasn't trained all week

 

Not ideal... was there an update on Besic? As he was touch and go for the last game.

 

Besic and Bamford have both trained and are fine

 

That's a relief! Fry is a safe pair of hands, straight swap for Ayala in my opinion. 

 

Shame we will miss Ayala's attacking threat though, Brentford concede from a lot of set pieces.

This is probably a better game for Ayala to miss as Brentford don't play with a big physical striker that both Gibson and Fry struggle with.

 

His impact in the other box when attacking set pieces and throw ins will be the biggest loss.

i'd move shotton to cb and play cranie. need experience on the pitch this time of season. one mistake could cost the game. plus shotton is likely still the type of cb to bully their little guys. they'll deffo get more joy out of fry. cranie right back is a safer bet imo. and knows pulis i bet thats what happens.

Why not put Cranie at CB? He is used to play there ;)

 

So did Shotton though so not much of an argument there.

 

Well, Shotton is scooled to cover for Adama, as some of us read in an interview shared here today... So I think for sure Shotton stays on the RB.. Be it Fry og be it Cranie to replace Ayala... IF he is not playable.... We'll see

Literally anyone could play RB for Adama if the role is to "don't go past him" it's not rocket science

I mean going by what Shotton said the other day, it's not as simple as that and it's not just "don't go past him".

Yeah, it's also the covering for him, coaching him on the far side of the pitch, knowing his game well enough to know when to push on. It is a role in itself.

So he also has to tell Traore when to come back and cover, you think that's a job that specifically requires Shotton out there to do? Come off it man, you could stick Cranie in at RB and I'd put money on him doing an equally good job because it's not that ***ing difficult.

amazing isnt it. soooo simple, stick an experienced pro behind him to keep him right, manager playing his every week. now adama is full of confidence and our best player.

 

monk made to look more utterly inept every week. total fraud.

    • Just looking at the actual comments made by BD, a couple of things come to mind. For one, the comment BD responded to was the one suggesting we go to the foreign market to buy players, not them. Secondly, BD has said it wasn't personal, that it could have been phrased better and I guess that's up to you whether you believe that or not but it's worth remembering that whilst they demonstrate excellent English skills, they aren't English and perhaps it would be mindful to think about that before jumping on them. Finally, BD is right, people do make comments like DR said. To look at the European market where better, cheaper transfers can be found, DR isn't alone in that. A lot of people do and have done even in the years following the original vote. That will be people all across the ~50/50, of course and it stands to reason there will be plenty of people annoyed by the fact 'we' voted that way not just for, but inclusive of the way we wanted our football club to be run. But ultimately BD is right that it is at the very least naïve to think we can operate in that market the way others have done in the past. We'll see how the laws around work permits change from here on but we left the EU and lost the freedom of movement and that inevitably brought challenges to recruitment, not just in the football industry. If you remember the time around the vote itself, immigration was a bloody huge topic so I'd be surprised if it changed that much. After all, why should footballers be any different? There are arguments for and against the long-term effects too, perhaps the development of players in this country can improve with a league less saturated by foreign talent. But opportunity isn't the only thing that drives the collective improvement of football, even at our level. There can surely be no doubt that the influence of foreign, especially European players and coaches has been felt in English football. Previous to us leaving, that was just less chance of us bringing those people to the Championship and lower levels. It feels like that gap to talent is only getting made bigger between the top level and below with these changes in the long-term. The best teams will still be able to justify bringing the best players and coaches in, we might less capable.
    • With puns like that you should emulate Ukraine's no. 25....  Positively Netherlands 13 :)..     good end to end game..  Ukrainian keeper MOTM  
    • borodanes point on Brexit is stating fact - get over it people - you voted for it! As for previous signings Woody seems to have done ok but was hounded out by the keyboard warriors who are better than him . Similar to Mogga really but ..... As for the “uninspiring” potential signings perhaps someone wants to Chuck a few million to Gibbo so that he can sign a world beater or two ...thought not! the World is in a bad place and my only hope is that there is a Boro in 12/24 months time as there will be teams that go under. If we offer x and a player wants y then we say thanks but no thanks and move on. If that means a Wyke or a Smith is wearing the shirt then I am fine with that
