Boro Vs Preston 1-2 (Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

 

After Saturday's performance Britt probably deserves dropping, he was useless.

 

His running in behind is what made the first goal and actually gave us some sort of outlet.

 

I sometimes wonder if I watch a different game to others.

 

Every game I watch theres not many who you can say had a good game, in fairness to Britt hes one of the ones who does but is always singled out if hes off the boil and even then he still tries to put a shift in, I guess when hes gone and we get "1 goal in 17 games Vassell" from Brum the Britt haters will be satisfied.

I'm trying to think of players who never have "off days" although I can think of a few who do, Sanchez comes to mind, Salah at the start of the season, Ozil,  Aguerro had a bad patch too yet Britt, out of favour, usually on the bench without any sort of consistent run in the team has to be 100% perfect every time he plays.

Not sure its the game they are watching but more the glasses they are watching them through - certainly not rose tinted in Britts case.

 

I don't know why you get your knickers in a twist every time you read an opinion you don't like.

 

I single Britt out because I don't think he works as hard as the rest of the team, I'm not saying he doesn't try but in terms of work rate he's a long way behind the rest of the team. He's just so frustrating to watch and he makes the wrong decision on the pitch so many times, I hear the fans getting frustrated with him a lot in the ground it isn't just me picking on him.

 

I respect people's opinions but I'm not sure how many actually go to the game on here to form a proper opinion. You see far more in the ground than you do on a laptop. Things like movement off the ball, closing players down and body language are things you can see miles better in the stadium.

 

I looked on fmttm the other day and there was a thread on there where people were pretty unanimous that Britt was poor and deserved to come off on Saturday. The problem wasn't him coming off it was who came on and the tactics that were the problem.

Having a different opinion to someone else on an Internet forum is "getting my knickers in a twist" if I respond with my opinion - so you completely ignore posts of different opinion to you do you? (except mine I guess)

Where do I say I "don't like" other people's opinions? It would be a bit boring if we all had exactly the same opinion on everything don't you think - or is that what a forum is for, to agree on everything and I'm the turd in the punchbowl?

If anyones knickers are in a twist I think it's yours.

Throwing FMTTM at me hardly validates your opinion, like mine it's your opinion, which I just don't happen to share, as for the stadium view I've seen myself thinking "Howson is having a great game" and a bloke next to me who's a Howson hater saying he's the worst player on the park, that's why I made the glasses comment.

My favourite part of what you ssid is "I respect people's opinions but......" then you basically go on to say people are not capable of forming an opinion unless what - they are stood in exactly the same place as you and watching exactly the same players "actions" as you?

When I say "every game I watch" I mean at a stadium or on sky - I don't think I've watched Boro in my life on a laptop. I either go, watch on sky or don't bother - I go to a lot more away games than home as I enjoy the atmosphere still there - I take it your at every away match too - forming your 100% percect opinion?

 

 

As usual when you disagree with someone you start making daft extreme statements. That's why you come across like you are having a hissy fit on half of your posts

 

You were trying to invalidate my opinions by throwing up loads silly comparisons. You are equating criticism of Britt to wanting a striker from Birmingham who doesn't score and then suggesting I compare him to the standards of Salah and Aguero.

 

I should have said I respect most opinions on here, you come across like you are either just extremely angry or maybe drunk 24/7.

So I'm also not allowed to express my opinion in my own way

and making comparisons of players who are way better than Britt but also have off days is an irrelevant opinion and I am therefore constantly angry or constantly drunk by expressing it?

Let me just put something into perspective here, I have absolutely no emotional attachment to most people on this forum, in fact I'd go as far to say most of you are the most irrelevant people in my life, I also see some of you as bullied PE teachers at school whos kids walk all over them so they come on here trying to find someone to force there opinions on. 

I do however find yours and other peoples opinions valid, I like to see how the clueless think, its just as informative as the "clued up" opinions. I'm no football expert, just a fan of the Boro, I really do love winding people up who think they are "the best fan" and have the "best opinion" I have to admit, then watch them get so angry that when I don't conform that they throw me accusations like I'm a 24 hours a day angry alcoholic - I dread to think how you'd cope if I really tried to wind you up  and in fairness it seems a reflection of your emotional state rather than mine.

I actually like having fun believe it or not and at the moment its a miserable time for me personally to be a Boro fan, this forum used to have some really funny, articulate posters who most of which have sadly left and been replaced by miserable, opinionated, high and mighty people such as yourself.

I'm not bothered about being the "best fan" or having an opinion that gets 20 likes, but I will post how I see fit, in whatever manner I see fit and neither you or anyone else will change them - now go and get those knickers changed because I believe they're not only twisted but you've wet them now. xxx

Isn't it nice when people can sort things out amicably.

 

I remember when certain people viewed me as nothing more than a trouble causer.  Now I'm seen as being full of wisdom in a turbulent Boro world.  A board elder as it were, universally liked and respected as a man who knows his footballing onions.  People can change and grow as this shows.  The people on this forum had to do a lot of growing to accept and understand my status as the official oneBoro voice of reason but eventually they did it and the world is a better place for it.  The pair of you now need to do the same and bury the hatchet at the same time.

 

2-1 Boro, Hugill and Saville to take us to victory  :fist:

We have a decent record against PNE. In my memory anyway...

 

2-0 Boro. God knows what the team will be. Reckon it'll be a fair bit different to last time though.

Whoa back to the old days, didn’t the forum just kick into gear. More attacks and counters than the BORO have managed all season.

I see Pulis has come out with the old “players are jaded” crap to allow him to revert back to his usual favourites like Hugill, Friend, Flint and co. Can’t say I hold much hope for tonight. I really cannot wait until he ***es off back to Wales!

    • The first session today will just be about surviving. The Aussies get a new ball in 5 or so overs I think
    • Personally I would have liked to see Stokes score more last night, fully accept the circumstances, but if we are too passive and cautious this too can assist the Aussies. One thing for certain we can not rely on Butler getting runs if he comes in early today
    • We really need both stokes and root to get a century, not too confident with the rest of the batters left
    • Well very pleased to see England close the day on 156-3. Very controlled and patient batting for most of the day from Root and Denly have gotten us to this stage. Stokes in the last hour of the day came into bat at 5 in survival mode and made 2 runs (not out) off 50 balls. The first session of tomorrow's play will decide the outcome of this test match (and the Ashes). If Stokes and Root can survive the first 8 overs of play unscathed. At which point the new ball is available to Australia. They will then have to contend with the new ball and the threats that come with it. If they can get to lunch unscathed after the new ball I think that is when the test becomes ours to lose. At this stage I'd happily take England scoring 30 runs all session if it meant losing no wickets. It will also be England's highest ever run chase if we are successful.
    • Our problem has been that we just don't score goals, we've been amongst the lowest scorers in the championship both pre and post our 1 season recently in the PL. This season, although it's early on, seems to be going the same way. While Britt does get goals, he's not what you'd call prolific, we've been set up as a defensive team for a few years now through different managers and scoring has been an added bonus to not conceding goals.
