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.

    • 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
    • He showed so much quickness and pace from that position that I think most felt he could naturally move up the field into an advanced role.  Maybe his talents are just suited to the back half of the pitch for now. Work on his defensive positioning. There is a place for a RB with with pace and quickness who can advance the ball.
