Boro V Bristol City 0-1

Recommended Posts

Got back in the hotel to catch up. Did refresh the site while in the restaurant and it didn’t surprise one bit what I read. Poor from the players to miss supposedly big chances but I genuinely don’t think they are playing for the manager anymore. And that has a severe effect on their output. All of this falls back on the manager.

 

Everything from training, man management, tactics, motivation and pre match preparations smacks of a team and management that are so far from each other that the damage is done. He can’t lift them and that transfers onto the pitch. If he stays I wouldn’t be surprised if we finish the season with just one or two more wins.

I did say at the start of the season, I thought we looked a mid-Table championship side,I thought Britt was going to be a lot better than he is ,still can't believe how many times we hit the wood work last night, especially in the first half If just one had gone in I'm sure we would be looking at a completely different result

Stayed till the end last night, obviously there was the chants of Pulis out, but well before that there was also the chants that started in the West stand and went right around the ground of " Tony Pulis your football is ***" and that was louder than the Pulis out chants.

This chant was also started by the Bristol fans and the boro fans joined in haha

I don’t blame Pulis for us not taking our guilt edge chances last night but what I do blame him for is the biggest disconnect between the club and its supporters that I can remember (ST 20y+), the football we play is awful, no one runs with the ball no pace, a team of giants who are like dinosaurs with a dinasuar of a manager. Football has changed we haven’t

The forwards always getting the blame for missing these "gilt edge chances" - the forwards being those who had hardly started a game up till not so long ago when his striker the "local lad" was finally replaced by his "panic subs"

The same lads he's constantly tried to get rid of for 18 months and put them down at every single opportunity - yeah I guess they're to blame for all this

    • Is Fry still the worst defender in the league though?
    • People always have to whinge, don't they? Unbeaten in 7, haven't conceded a goal from open play all season, we look a proper unit and there's a real togetherness in the squad for the first time in 4-5 years. Actually guys, instead of looking to the positives, lets try and tear down a young right back starting his first full season, or, how about we have a go at Assombalonga for not playing his best in a role unsuited to him? Get a grip and enjoy the team doing well for a change.
    • I'm not comparing us to last season though.  I don't quite understand why everyone is? Last season was an anomaly, caused by us appointing someone to the manager's job that had no business being there.  The two seasons before that we finished 5th and 7th and the bulk of this squad is still those players - Fry, Howson, Saville, McNair, Wing, Tavernier, Wing, Assombalonga, Fletcher, Johnson.  Dijksteel looks more than capable so far, Morsy looks like a good solid Championship player, and the same can be said for the likes of Hall, Akpom and Bettenelli.  We aren't the plucky underdogs in this league, the likes of Coventry and Wycombe are, so why act like it, unless it's to try and make things feel better? As we've discussed plenty of times, it's not a choice between points and entertainment.  Other clubs manage both, but some Boro fans seem to have convinced themselves that you have to decide between one and the other. Having said that, my opinion is already known so I should shut up about it, as nothing is going to change, and believe it or not, I don't want to be a downer for other people.  So I will button it on that subject from now on.
    • He hasnt played a decent game this season. But then again heade a few good tackles late on when he was playing deeper. So maybe he would be better in a 4. Not seen much from him going forward 
    • Wouldn't say he was plodding tbf, he'd actually be a decent signing just not at the expense of McNair
