Recommended Posts

If the excellent rep point system was still around I'd be giving you plus rep points for days for this but as I refuse to use the stupid Like button you don't get anything.

 

Very good work mind :)

Excellent innovative OP BoroUnger. I’m not sure about Stheeeeve adapting a cockney accent but it does look like we have seen the last of Braithwaite unfortunately. His heart just never seemed to be in Boro which is a pity as he is a good player

with us playing arguably the best we have played all season in the second half on Saturday, i would go with the following line up;

 

Randolph

Shotton Ayala Flint Friend

Clayton

Wing Saville Howson

Brit Hugill

 

This gives us legs in midfield to support the attack and also eliminates our weakness of not having any wingers.

 

unfortunately i see it being the same team that started against Rovers with Wing or Saville replacing Besic

Every time we've played well this season Wing has been in the side. I know Tony is knocking on a bit but surely he should have caught on by now?

 

Howson is utter garbage again. Besic suspended. Time for Wing and Tav to come into the side.

Can't see Pulis starting with two up front even if we looked more dangerous in the second half against Blackburn despite being down to ten men. It'll be more of the same plodding along hoping to get a chance for the one player in the box.

Been away for a bit - working in Mumbai as well as a few projects in Brum beforehand... Been a nice distraction from the Boro/Pulis debates!

 

QPR should be three points; get ourselves back on track after recent performances. That said though, they've had a couple of surprise results - and some of their youngsters have shone a little this season.

 

I'm going 2-1 Boro.

 

PS. OP. Best ever! Like a Welsh Steven Toast...

Terrific op BU deserves a lot more responses to it unless folks are voicing their replies!

 

Looking forward to the game and a repeat of last years score will go down nicely.

 

QPR are somewhat up and down at the moment so not sure what we will see from them.

 

The courage and intensity of last weeks second half will be needed and hopefully with 11 men this time. Score first is essential we are not taking advantage of how others perceive us when we do.

We definitely need to turn around our fortunes, going for a 2-1 away win with both goals coming from set pieces!

    • I don't want to keep arguing about Woodgate's off the field antics, I've got my opinion and other people have theirs.  Onto the football credentials he is lacking experience that's a fact, it's not overly harsh to doubt whether he's ready or not. If you didn't like Pulis and have doubts about Woodgate that doesn't make you someone who wants us to fail, I actually think there's logic and good reason behind having that train of thought.  I've argued the same point on here for the last few years when managers have been criticised, the failings here have been far bigger than just the manager. Its the whole culture of the club that's been wrong. We've heard the plans and the sound bites like we predicted now we've got to put it into practice. For all the nice ideas the fact remains; to be successful you need to sign good players. This is why I'm sceptical of this bright new era, what are we going to be doing differently with our recruitment?  'The committee' who are in charge of this includes 2 businessmen in Gibson and Bauser and an administrator in Bevington. I'm not sure how they are qualified to be making football decisions.  Maybe we'll be looking to add some more football nous into the committee with additional appointments.  
    • Excellent article. Thanks for sharing EP 👍
    • https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/sport/17713085.jonathan-woodgate-deserves-the-support-of-middlesbrough-fans/ FOOTBALL fans can be a strange breed. Last season, Middlesbrough supporters were crying out for a change of direction. So what happens? Tony Pulis leaves, the club appoint Jonathan Woodgate as part of a radical reorganisation, and people are still not happy. Not all, admittedly. But a trawl through social media last week suggested the reaction to Woodgate’s appointment has been mixed at best. Too inexperienced. Not bright enough. Too caught up in the failures of the previous regime. Part of the ‘Teesside mafia’. The criticisms have been as varied as they have been ridiculous. Before a ball has even been kicked on Woodgate’s watch, it is almost as if a section of Middlesbrough’ s fan base cannot wait to see him fail. “I don’t mind anyone having a view,” said Woodgate, in his introductory press conference last Friday. “But it’s when it’s character assassination, digging and rumors. You know what society can be like sometimes. The hardcore fans really back you, and I’ve had some lovely messages as well.” Should a boyhood Middlesbrough fan, who has spent the best part of seven years playing and coaching at his hometown club, really have to make such a statement on what he openly admitted was the proudest day of his footballing life? I’ve always been of the belief that while football fans profess to want homegrown players breaking into their club’s first team, they’re quicker to turn on them if they think they’re getting too big for their boots. That’s not just the case at Middlesbrough, but how else do you explain the criticism that’s been meted out to Stewart Downing, surely one of the best players Teesside has ever produced, in the last few years? Woodgate has been tarred with the same brush, but while it is perfectly justified to have reservations about the 39-year-old’s ability to step up to a head coach role in the pressure-cooker environment of the Championship, some of the more personal attacks that have been levelled at him in the last week are inexcusable. And even if Woodgate still has plenty to prove as the head of a new-look coaching team, surely it is better that Steve Gibson has gone down the route of promoting an ambitious young coach with a lifelong association to Middlesbrough rather than opting for one of the tried-and-tested alternatives that were available? Boro went down the ‘old-school, experience’ route with Pulis, and it did not work. They went down the ‘throw a load of money at the problem’ route with Garry Monk, and that did not work either. The most successful recent period on Gibson’s watch came under Aitor Karanka, and just as appointing the previously untested Spaniard was a risk that paid dividends, so it is to be hoped that Woodgate grows into a managerial role and goes on to win promotion. When John Terry was mentioned as a potential candidate, a frisson of excitement seemed to flow around Teesside. But why should Terry, with half a season on the coaching staff at Aston Villa, be seen as a better bet than Woodgate, who has worked with Boro’s academy set-up and first team as well as gaining experience as a scout at Liverpool? Frank Lampard looks set to be the new boss at Chelsea, but he is only a year or so ahead of Woodgate in terms of his managerial development. With the parachute payments from the Premier League having expired, this is going to be a period of change for Middlesbrough. Gibson disputed the notion that finances were tight on Friday, but there is little doubt that the free-spending days of the past are over. The Financial Fair Play regulations mean Boro’s wriggle room in the transfer market is extremely limited, so surely it is better to have someone like Woodgate in charge, who is crystal-clear about the situation and wants to head down a different route?
    • Won't sign a new contract because he sees himself as a winger and Jurgen the German sees him as an attacking fullback.
    • Wednesday are a strange one they have not submitted any of their accounts. Hence their "soft embargo". I'd keep an eye on that as potentially they could be treading a legal tightrope if it isn't just the FA they haven't submitted their accounts too.
