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.

    • Interesting how the gazette are starting to run Pearson articles... 
    • Didn't realise they had started to turn the corner, a few years back it didn't matter what form they were in when playing us we would never beat em, this winless run started in 1974 & finished in 1999 We fared better since but I don't like playing Forest at all, it's always one fixture, Leeds been the other when in the same league, that I look for & hope they're out the way early doors 
    • Hourihane is very good and proven , LM LW AM . 3 year younger than Grosicki at 29 .
    • I have to stay up to watch my Buccs beat The Saints! .. I can watch the game and still manage 3 hours of sleep before work 😛  Anyone else watching it?
    • So, it's time again .. the time where Assombalonga misses more sitters than on a normal day, cause we are away to Nottingham Forest, his former club. I'm just glad we never play Peterborough! It's this Wednesday at 7 PM weird British time btw, if you are into self masochism and other forms of self inflicted agony. Forest have finally gotten their sh1t together and their last 5 games = W W D D D, a nice unbeaten run after a terrible start to the season. This must be the result of hiring Chris Hughton.  Our vey own Boro is totally hit or miss these days, but we have still managed to also get 9 points of the last 5 games : L W L W W, so we can only hope it's the winning Boro that shows up. This time it could be nice with a win and a clean sheet ... Who am I kidding, we are nailed to go one down within the first 15 minutes ... as usual ..  I actually predict a draw, cause we haven't had one of those in 12 league games!  The bookies have it as a tight game: 2.65 - 3.15 - 2.85  .. These are the decimal odds for home, draw and away, if you wonder. I don't know the weird odds you guys love, but hey .. put your money on the draw.  In the reverse game at The Riverside, we beat Forest 1-0 (Marvinho) in October, when our stadium still was a fortress that wasn't Karankanized, like when we lost 0-1 to Brum last Saturday! So, let's have some quetions!  1: Which team and formation should NW go with? 2: Are you happy with a draw and why/why not? 3: Will Britt miss a penna? 4: Can Chris Hughton make Forest a play off candidate? 5: Can NW make us a play off candidate? 6: Who will be the first to write "this is a game for Patrick Roberts" and who will be the first to be baffled, when Folarin is subbed on in the 88th minute and Roberts aint? 7: Burger King or Mc Donalds?  If you want a look from the other site (pun intended) here you go: https://forums.vitalfootball.co.uk/forums/100-forest.60/ (no Boro thread up, when I was writing this) UTB!
