Well .. Does anyone remember, when I half jokingly said... What if Adama, which everybody at that time hated, turned out to be a good player... And pardon me.. he freaking did!

 

No, because that didn’t happen.

 

idgaf what u think 

 

And I don't want to go back and find it .. My life is too short for that... But the optimist I am .. I said that, when people were hating him for being a one trick pony, with no end product .. 

 

Let's see with Gestede now, shall we ...

 

Well I can tell you that I never hated him, I always said that he was a potential superstar. So not everybody hated him ;)

 

You know when he said everyone he didn’t mean EVERYONE. It’s a saying . I’m sure someone in the arctic tundra hasn’t even heard of him so I’d doubt they hated him

 

Thanks rich, I was really flummoxed by that one for a while. I was just thinking to myself, how could he possibly have surveyed everyone’s opinion in the world? What about the people on the international space station, do they count? What about people in uncontacted tribes? It’s a logistical nightmare!

There were plenty of people who didn't think he was rubbish, anyone with half a brain could see he had immense potential.

 

One good half season and suddenly he's not rubbish  :huh:  I've heard it all now  :rolleyes: :whistle:

Anyone think we may not actually sell any of our main players? I thought the likes of Gibson and maybe assombalonga were certain to go, but it looks like we've put high prices on them and aren't budging.

It’s my mission to help those less fortunate..... a bit like St. John :).

Does anyone think Middlesbrough fans (In General, not individually) think the club is much better than it is. I think it's quite arrogant to suggest anyone is our rival at present, and more arrogant to suggest we will be promotion candidates. I've seen very little up to now to suggest we will be. We have signed two tall players and in the one preseason game thus far (I know it's only 1 but first impressions and all that) we played back to front quickly. A policy which pulis has proved he can make work when trying to avoid relegation but very rarely leads to great promotion pushes.

 

Someone previously said that at present gestede would be starting the season. The only way that isn't true is if we buy another big target man. I can barely see Britt getting a kick so get rid....pulis clearly doesn't fancy him. The downside is that it will free up the money for pulis to sign another beanpole

every teams fans think their team is better than it is, because it is to them i guess.

 

its not arrogant at all to hope we are in the mix for promotion and guess our rivals. after all we ended up 5th last season and were basically useless, had a complete change in philosophy half way through and that basically made several new signings from the summer redundant. pulis was still stuck with a load of players he didnt like and managed to still improve on monk with monks players. shows you what a joke monk was i guess.

How is it arrogant to suggest a team that finished 5th last season will be challenging for promotion?

I suppose the proof will be seen this season. I think I read that pulis averaged something like 1.7 points per game after he took over (this may be slightly wrong) with "monks players". It will be interesting to see how many points per game we average with "pulis players".

We keep getting told it was monks team. I'm thinking that at least half of the team will be different. So a bit of a wild guess on what the team will look like.

But as it stands it’s not arrogant at all to suggest we’ll be up there, we have a solid bunch of players most of whom will be here next season. In our last 3 seasons in this league we’ve finished in the playoffs as a minimum in every one of them.

    • As CT alluded to possibly on another thread, some people like to knock our young lads at every opportunity. I don’t get it. 
    • Still depends on what you're looking for. I'd say some of the bigger ones include: World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 The Elder Scrolls Online Final Fantasy XIV EVE Online Runescape Black Desert Online. There's a new one coming in early 2021 that looks quite interesting called New World.  
    • i said it last season, the kids will keep improving and be even better as time goes on. thats what we see now. some of the football today was nice and need fast football. players involved were the young lads and bola. they know eachothers game they are pretty familiar and now the confidence is coming for them we are seeing them express themselves. the shackles are coming off and the young lads are starting to show us what they can do. give it a few months if this form keeps up these kids will be flyin and the goals will be flowing. lot more to come from us yet. well done NW you can see they all love him he's like a grandad figure to them never mind a father figure. he'll give them the love and build their confidence and we'll keep seeing the results of that in their performances, UTB.
    • NW says he has been training at Rockcliffe for the last couple of weeks so his knee must be ok now. NW wants to get him so who would argue with his judgement? Not me.
    • I can't believe it was 5 years ago when I posted this.  Are there any good new ones out that people know about?
