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.

    • Good post, @BluebirdinExile. We do have a manager who knows how to grind out results, but the players don't seem to be following his instructions lately! This is the sort of game that makes me glad I don't bet on results, because I have no idea what'll actually happen. We're hopelessly inconsistent atm.
    • Hi all, Cardiff fan in peace always had a soft spot for Boro ever since seeing your support in Cardiff early doors in the FA cup in the 90's.     Anyway after reading some comments about it will be a walk in a park for Cardiff, I dont think it will be.  We are beginning to look tired, we are not used to the high press we are currently playing at the moment, if the scores are remaining level after 70 mins then I can see you sneaking something. You have a manager who knows how to grind out results in this division, so its not all doom and gloom for you.   Anyway i hope we win on Saturday, but after that I hope you at least make the playoffs.    All the best to you 👍
    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.
