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

Recommended Posts

Shotton is just a terrible footballer.

 

He isn't in fairness.  I'm not his biggest fan but he isn't terrible.  However he is basically a central defender who got shifted to full back at some point and then stayed there and he does struggle at times when he's one on one with an opposition player.  Terrible is a touch harsh though.

Swansea as we speak are 5 points behind us in 13th with a game in hand. Were gonna finish bottom half. And pulis is still gonna say hes overachieving

Another day. Another loss. This could get really ugly. This is clearly not a team playing for their manager.

The stats are a very poor showing and now a goal down. Don’t believe there is away back so will chalk this up to six defeats in a row. Never in my 48 years of supporting BORO can I remember a worse team. Now two down and I expect a rout.

Maybe getting walloped 6 - 0 might just be the tipping point for Gibson?

It is all over now 2-0 and Bristol City losing to rub salt into the wounds

 

If SG does not sack the man today the he no longer deserves to be in charge of our loved club.

Ye you may be right, he can clear and head things fairly effectively, but his passing and judgement are woefully poor at times.

When was the last time we lost 6 in a row?

 

2000. Apparently leann rhymes was top of the charts.

 

There was a picture on the Gazette website from one of the games at home against Leicester when we got gubbed 3-0.  I'm sure that was the game that someone threw the ball back from high up in the West Stand and it hit Robbo on the head to a lot of cheers...So that's how happy the fans were then  :@

Same inside ball they keep playing, was going to end in a goal eventually, as we failed to defend it well once.

    • I've noticed a lot of online users have signed on this week, so for you this is the history of Magic Lamp.   Little of the history of Magic Lamp has ever been published, but after helping Huddersfield to their only FA Cup win in 1922 Magic lamp disappeared for nearly forty years resurfacing in the mid sixties, found in an attic of a pawn dealer in Dagenham by a schoolboy friend of Alf Ramsey. After a bit of research he found that this indeed was the Lamp that helped Huddersfield  win the FA Cup and as a bit of joke passed the lamp onto Alf for good luck with The World Cup about to start.   Of course England went on to win, however, what wasn't known was that there was a dressing room ritual with the Magic Lamp never before published that will astound the public. In some recently discovered papers, an unpublished interview with Alf Ramsey penned by Cassandra of the Daily Mirror, which were overlooked upon his premature death in 1967, that only now can the contents be revealed.   Cassandra writes, Jimmy Greaves tipped me off about this strange ritual, intrigued I sought out Alf and he granted me an interview at his modest Ipswich bungalow and said it all started off as a bit of a joke, but it was really to take the pressure off the team and footballers being a superstitious mix embraced it. By the time we got to the Argentina match the players were starting to believe in it. Greaves was injured and refused to rub Magic lamp, I had a decision to make and brought in Hurst to the fold. Magic Lamp came to the fore that day causing Rattin to speak incomprehensible nonsense to the referee and got himself sent off, them Geoff scored a marvellous goal. By the time the final came Greavsie was fit, the press were clamouring for his return and I had a decision to make. I said to Jimmy are you a believer and he replied no and then picked up the lamp and hurled it at the dressing room wall, shouting I'm the star of this fecking team not some Magic Lamp. By good fortune Gordon (Banks) was stood at the wall talking to George Cohen and he instinctively caught Magic Lamp saving irreparable damage So my mind was made up, an unchanged team and the rest is history. As the full time time whistle blew Magic Lamp said to me, you've already won it once, tell them to go out and win it again.   There was great celebrating in the dressing room afterwards and the players said the only thing better than drinking champagne out of The World Cup, was sipping it from the delicate lips of Magic Lamp.   Alf said he wanted to take Magic Lamp to Mexico. Magic Lamp declined the offer saying he needed at least another forty year rest before exerting himself again.   Cassandra. Thank you Alf. The nation indeed owes a debt of gratitude to Magic Lamp...                                              
    • We didn’t even talk to Viduka about a new contract until it was too late. If it’s happened to Downing and Schwarzer, it probably happened to Viduka as well.
    • Wonder if Assombalonga plays this as he has a epic record against Birmingham. Also they is doubt about Watmore starting after today comments from Warnock about him suffering Covid the worst. Everything in the form book points to a easy Boro home win but this is football and we could have a typical Boro moment of Clayton or Friend scoring a hatrick 😂
