Boro vs Swansea (A) 1-3 (Saville)

Recommended Posts

It’s not over yet and we could see more defeats and more Pulis stubbornness. What the hell was Steve Gibson thinking.

 

Tony Pulis defends record at West Brom despite 10-game winless run

The Baggies have only won four games in their last 25 and having claimed victories in their first three matches of the campaign no sit just a point above the relegation zone

Here's an absolute first, I can't post what I wanted to say because it's already been said, in fact at times reading through the posts is like watching me talk to myself - what has this forum come to?

I've been whinging about it since the villa play off games, it's nice to be in the majority now!

From quotes from the Gazette from TP's presser

 

"We asked him about his team selection and his approach - he said the system he chose worked at West Brom and Birmingham and that Assombalonga and Fletcher needed a rest.

 

He was asked whether he’s concerned about his job but reiterated that he has a very strong relationship with Steve Gibson and he took the Boro job because of the chairman.

 

He said he still believes Boro can finish in the top six this season and the players believe it too"

 

It didn't work at West Brom.  We were losing when he brought on Assombalonga who then scored twice to turn the game around.

 

I just despise the guy. He quotes games where it supposedly worked (which are not strictly true as you say), but what about all the games where this system failed miserably, it’s a much longer list.

    • As our leading scorer I'd be tempted to play Magic Marvin as the lone Striker with Tav behind and Roberts and Watmore on the wings.
    • Platt was my boyhood keeper, couldn't kick a ball straight, unless he kicked it straight into touch, but he was excellent for years, I would rate him on par with Schwarzer and I think the Aussie would have helped to keep us up if he hadn't gotten injured.
    • Given made 16 Boro appearances, Valdes 28 appearances and Randolph 106 appearances in a Boro shirt. Given was a 93 day maximum permitted loan but he kept 10 clean sheets in those 16 games. I'm pretty sure that Valdes will have been signed with the intention of him being around for longer than 28 games. Randolph's 106 games are maybe not what could be classed as a long serving tenure but a little more than a cameo in fairness to him. in contrast however Jim Platt made 481 appearances so I suppose by comparison they were all somewhat transient.
    • The big Auzzie was very good and for a long time.  I notice you have not mentioned Jim Platt who I rated highly also along with Pears.  For some reason I tend to regard Given and Randolph as cameo appearances which is not really fair   but who said life was fair - keep smiling
    • Some interesting replies on crowds returning.  I have a record of 65 + years of attending Boro matches and I'm anxious to keep it up but have one or three health problems so I can take no risks with Covid. transmissions.   I'd love to go but it won't be until I've been vacced etc.  If I can I'd love to go, even if its just the one game to keep up the record of at least one game in every season since 1953/4   keep smiling
