Derby Vs Middlesbrough 1-1 (Hugill)


Recommended Posts

This is somewhat of a rare occurrence for me, having to do two match threads in a row. Almost as rare as the concept of Boro winning twice in a row.

Here is a picture of a really rare tortoise which is nearly extinct, our team has taken inspiration from this magnificent beast by having the slowest attack in all of Britain. We managed to get a victory against bottom of the league so we have upgraded our status from sloth to tortoise. And people say we haven't improved under Tony!

 

In contrast we welcome Derby County are buzzing off the back of a 3-4 victory over Norwich. It must be so boring to watch all those goals fly in. I'm sure we'd all agree that we'd much prefer watching Besic run around, keep hold of the ball and then eventually lose it. Smashing stuff.

 

My team selection is anyone who can pass the beep test because that means that Tav and Wing might actually start together for once.

 

So Predictions, Premonitions, Pessimism's, Porpoises? .. Yeah ran out of P words.

 

In other news that is utterly tragic, I have found my ST...maybe I can convince the bunny to eat it.

Hopefully Tony can give Frank an education about what fans really want - five at the back and four central midfielders. PROPAH football - none of this 4-3 crap. Tav needs a few games in the reserves to mull over his idiotic decision making - Stewy D was wide open for a sideways pass when he took that shot on last game.

 

Hugill to dive for a penner and tuck it away in the 93rd minute. 1-0 Boro and a Happy New Year.

In front of the Derby goal. That way Pulis will have an excuse...

 

The stadium is on an industrial estate and its fairly easy to find a spot if you get there early enough.

I like the style, but I can't handle the inaccuracy, come on, Stewey wasn't even on the pitch! 

 

A+ for effort, D- for execution.

    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there. 
    • Hartlepool, Harrogate, Newcastle or Leeds please. (Away)  
    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
