Wow and I thought I was bad.

CT, we could lock you in a room and you'd probably start arguing with yourself.

What would there be to argue with myself when I'm always right? :classic_rolleyes:

I'm sure you'd find something.

You don't argue with yourself, but you use your dummie profiles to create arguments (them all being silly and radical) and then you try to step in with your reasoning opinions, which have been good at times, but sometimes you really just want to argue for the sake of arguing.. Not to find out what is right or wrong... 

But it's nice to see, that people are stepping up and talk back ? 

No offence in this, just a tinfoil hat opinon!

On a side note, Jokanovic has been appointed as the new coach of Qatar super league side Al-Gharafa. Apologies if i have spelt their name wrong.

Think the rumours about his high wage demands might have been true. Think WBA, us and Forest all showed an interest if media are to be believed but all 3 clubs could not meet his personal demands. 

He was my 1st choice but dont think he was ever a realistic option for us. No criticism of the club for not getting him from me mind

I am one of those who didn’t get the Woody hate before he was appointed but admitted that Jokanovic was my first choice. After hearing the press conference though it is now clear that we are looking at a new start and I don’t think Jokanovic would have fitted that profile. The new team exites me because it is a fresh approach , maybe that’s just what others see

This could even be an inspired move as lots of people seem happy to give Woody a “free” season , a bit like the lad Farke at Norwich had, as long as we show signs of change. An experienced manager wouldn’t have got that for sure

If you're suggesting that Brunners is a dummy profile of mine then actually I do take great offence at that ?

I imagine Brunners wouldn't exactly be thrilled either although it would mean a step up in the world for him at least ?

Brunners would be one of my last choices as your "dummie" account - who could actually be arsed to set up a separate account just to argue with themselves? 

Sometimes I genuinely wonder what goes on in peoples heads - we've got some right ones on here.

The most important factor about this appointment is that the club have bought themselves time. 

Do you think we are now in a 3 year project? Or have the players we have good enough to go up this season with a bit of tweaking?

Personally I believe buying time about sums it up. He is there because we don’t have cash to splash the fan base has dwindled and SG can’t afford another failed project. SG knows fans will give a local lad more time than another impostor.  For quit sometime Woodgate has been instrumental in a very poor BORO squad but we are now led to believe he is a messiah about to create miracles. What I believe we will see is change, erratic football and results.

According to the NE headlines Braithwaite will get his chance in pre-season, if he wants it, could just be talk to help with the price but we'll see I suppose.

Monk did try to play a front 3 of Fletcher-Britt-Braithwaite with 2 wingbacks providing the width he abandoned it pretty quickly but it seemed to work somewhat. Wonder whether we could see the return of that, it is very Liverpool-esque which is what Woodgate seems to want.

I think he panicked after we lost 1-0 to wolves, from memory?

Yes I think we played Burton and then Sheffield United after that, from what I can remember we were playing more of a 2 up top with Gestede as one and Bamford as more of a number 10 in that Sheffield game.

    • This is what I would want to see. More of a 3-5-2 which has worked for us at times this season. I feel like we need Howson in midfield as our midfielders are just useless and lack any leadership, he can at least make a tackle. Saville to start if we want more balance or Tav if we wanna go for it. Roberts behind the striker and just let him run at them on the counter attack, maybe him and Britt could get something going. Let Spence and Coulson offer our pace and width as wingsback.                                          Stojanovic    Spence - Fry - Moukoudi - Friend/Shotton - Coulson                          Howson - McNair - Saville/Tav                                       Roberts                                               Britt/Fletch                             Not that it matters like, don't have much hope for this game.
    • Half-way through Mad Men and just started series 5 of The Bureau, both excellent. 
    • Warnock's had a good shuffle of the pack now. That's the desperate hope that his selections will finally click and maybe lady luck will smile on us too.

    • At this point I'd usually go check out how Millwall were doing and figure out how we could beat them. But whilst Stoke wasn't exactly a masterclass, the last two games in particular have left me bereft of confidence in this side. This squad isn't built out of League One quality players and yet the lack of quality coming from players at the moment makes it look like they are. Our passing and movement is so key to the way Warnock wants us to play but I just don't think anyone is really tackling this task together right now. We see some individual quality on display, particularly from Roberts and Britt at times in the last few games, but it's just not coming together as a unit. The final ball or decision is made too late, too strong or too weak. I agree with some others that I don't think that effort is necessarily the issue... it's just quality when and where it matters. We don't have a single player in the squad right now who's capable of planting a ball on a player's noggin on a consistent basis from a dead ball, never mind when in the flow of play. Still, the team? Hopefully Spence is back... this is what comes to mind. Stojanovic Spence Fry Friend Coulson Tav Howson Saville Roberts Fletcher Britt
