Recommended Posts

 

:D  not again Billy  :D

 

I was washing up some Bras that I did not want to put in the machine..... I thought to spare you details in the first post.....

 

You can get a little mesh bag to put them in, zip it up and put it in the machine and your away.

 

That way they won't get damaged, unless they are really fancy.

 

You sly old dog, Billy  ;)

 

I think maybe it's Billie on a weekend haha

 

Don’t mention any of this to Adam, he’ll go mental.

Good OP Foogle.

 

I think we'll surprise people this weekend and win 2-0. Hopefully Mikel can get a full game under his belt and VLP to start - we need his creativity and pace.

Entertaining OP Foogle.

 

I'm guessing he'll go one up top again with hugill and flood the midfield. He can site the poor game Britt had midweek (I know, but Tony sees what Tony sees).

 

Hoping for a west Brom. Expecting a Newport.

 

Boo-lis Boo-lis.

 

That is what all the fans were singing. The only boos I heard were at wing who, surely we can all agree, is nothing better than a bang average mid table champo player at best !!! :P

I was surprised by the West Brom result. Surprised by the Newport result. So hopefully it will be 3 surprises in a row and we win. :omg:

 

Wonder which Boro will turn up on the day.

Boro V Leeds has always been the biggest local derby for me. So I hope it's the Boro with passion at least.

You guys going must be nuts going particularly after Newport dont just mean the performance but what happened after with the players showing such disrespect to the fans who went and endured that. Boro will always be my club that i love and support but not blindly giving money constantly when I am not entertained when i go and think alot of the players are completely disconnected from the fans/club.

 

I really hope we win and i know Leeds are not on form but cant see it because i dont think Leeds will make the mistakes West Brom defensively and we are lacking creativity probably 1-0 leeds win.

Well let’s look at the two teams. BORO are stagnant and trudge through cycles of repetition just like heavy storm clouds who rumble and threaten and pass slowly above. A flat heavy brown ale. Leeds are more fluid and spritely like the summer wisps of clouds that spreed swiftly across sky. More like Prosecco. Score line 2-1 BORO.. for some strange reason I just fancy our changes.

Well that was a rather poetic analysis  :cheese:

 

Although I would compare Boro's fluidity more to a McDonalds milkshake that came out as pure ice cream

I'm at a wedding so thankfully don't have to sit through this.

 

Whoever it was that suggested the best way of following the Boro atm is just to check the scores at full time is definitely on to something. I'll not be back this season.

Leeds away earlier in the season we pressed them high and got in their faces... I really hope we don't do what we pulled at Villa, giving them too much space to play in.

Let's just get behind the team tomorrow.

We are still handily placed, a win tomorrow and who knows.

So much negativity which I fully understand and appreciate but let's just unite behind the team and roar them to a huge win.

I wonder if Clayton will start, he is walking on egg shells to a degree and fast losing his fans favourite tag not just because of fans interaction but his current playing level.

 

We need a united display from team and fans to win this match and I believe we will be better served without Clayton on the pitch, besides he has 9 yellow cards does he not?

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
