Boro v Aston Villa - Playoff Semi Final (Second Leg) 0-0 (0-1 agg)

Recommended Posts

A Baggies fan here and I come in peace.


I came on to see what your thoughts and views were about Pulis. For obvious reasons I was absolutely praying that you would knock the vile out the other night but when I watched the game unfortunately I saw something very familiar. I have to say that I was very surprised when you appointed the capped one, and I see he has not changed one bit. As you know we are coming to join you next season, and we deserve to in all honesty. Our football under Pulis at the end of last season and this season was excruciating to put it mildly, and to show you how dumb our board was we even gave him a contract extension in the close season. Do you know if he has total control of who he buys/sells? because he did here and we are now paying for it, that is a big mistake. Don't expect to sign anyone under 6ft 2.

To be fair he probably will get you out the Championship, like he did with Stoke, but it won't be pretty and you will get used to the phrases such as 'smashing bunch of lads', and 'he works aaaard'. To start with I was a Pulis fan, after all he saved us from relegation, but he should have gone after he did the job he was paid for. But his football is negative and shocking, so much so that eventually quite a few stayed away from the ground. Against the vile the other night I believe you had no shots on goal? I am afraid that you will be seeing that quite a lot next season unfortunately, he doesn't have a clue about attacking other than playing a solitary striker up front and punting the ball long to him as and when.

I wish you well for the new season and can I say that this seems to be a very well run forum. Have you ever been on the Stoke site Oatcake? They don't like Pulis either, but they are rather more 'agricultural' in their views!!

Cheers for the input skyclad, interesting perspective on Pulis and one that a lot of Baggie’s fans seem to have.

Think a full season with Pulis after he’s built his own squad will give us more of a feel for what he’s like, as to be fair to him he’s only had a half a season with us.

Not sure on whether it’s good or bad for us, but only time will tell!

    • Here comes the Jinx .. Denmark haven't lost in 20 odd games .. Including the world cup .. We drew with both France and Croatia .. The finalists .. Schmeichel saved 3 pennas, but Eriksen, Schöne  and other missed .. against Croatia in a game we could have won in regular time ..  I hope for a good game tomorrow and that Randolph have a good game .. only letting in the winner from .. hmm . Maybe braithwaite? 😄
    • Almost forgot - This day back in 1973, my favourite season following the Boro 17th November 1973 Boro 3 Cardiff 0 Thiscwas our 9th home game, we had lost the 1st fixture 2-0 & conceded 5 goals at home, now we are starting to find our feet, clicking as a team & motoring through this league & the return of Graeme Souness after a 2 match suspension, with deputising Bill Gates, his only start that season standing down With goals from David Mills, surprisingly his 1st home goal of the season, 2nd in total, John Craggs with his 2nd goal also & Malcolm Smith with his 3rd goal of the campaigne, keeping the Boro in the driving seat at the top of the table Big Jacks team Jim Platt  John Craggs  Frank Spraggon  Graeme Souness  Stuey Boam  Willie Maddren  Bobby Murdoch  David Mills  John Hickton  Alan Foggon  Davey Armstrong  Sub  Malcolm Smith - Coming off the bench to score our 3rd  
    • Don’t blame you MM. we all signed up to the same situation. Keep an eye on the predictions league and you will be fine
    • Trouble is last season it was just a question of me posting PMs on Friday nights and getting peoples attention which is why we had good turn outs . This season however because of the new set up I cannot PM most people and I also cannot get in touch with most people on the @ connection as well. Very irritating to write a PM and then have the message come up that they are not excepting messages. Made the replays in the last round of the cup a farce with 2 moderators unable to receive messages. So now I have given up trying to do it at all.
    • And there was me thinking I will give everyone a better chance by opening it up and making it "THE" first goalscorer not just from one team. 😄
