We've still got the better fixtures so I reckon we'll still nick 6th.

Derby have a nice little goal difference over us and Bristol City, I love this club but I honestly don't want us to make the play offs playing this horrible style of boring crap football, 45 goals its embarrassing we're a disgrace to football.

Incidentally, stoke are now only 2 goals behind us and are one of only 3 teams that have scored less than us this season. There is a very real chance we will finish bottom 3 of goals scored.

 

And there are still some out there who will defend pulis and say that it's the players and not him. The players have had the life sucked out of them.

Beginning of the season we stumbled on a formation that worked for us due to injuries. Then we played Leeds who were flying and we defended like lions. That was the changing point of the season. Pullis saw that we could defend and that made him happy as a pig in *** and thought he could do that all season. He then brought in Saville, hugill and besic and was forced to shoehorn the them in to justify bringing them in and that disrupted the balance of the team.

 

It's been terrible since then. We lost away to Norwich and never improved.

 

Changes needed

Woke up after a night shift this afternoon and couldn't even be ***d to listen to us, I had a feeling we'd lose and we did.

 

Players know we're staying in the Championship for another season and a few are probably already onto their agents to get them a move. Gibson won't care, it just means more money for him not to put back into the club.

Talk about see no wrong ***ing hell.

Lets be honest, even if we did scrape 6th place, can anyone really see us beating 3rd place and then winning play off final?

There are no circumstances ever that I will thrash talk the Boro. They are my team and I support them through thick and thin. I always have done and I always will do. Sorry if that upsets you

Under Pulis, not a chance. Just look at last season against Villa.

ive had enough ,absolutely sick of hearing commentators/pundits  saying weve offered nothing,, hardly been in thier area, slowlethargic negative tactics etc etc .... The only reason i want us to win is  down to the fact i was brought up a boro fan and its in my blood that will never leave me but as we are at present  i honestly dont want to go through any more listening or watching this regime and its dourness.  i hope derby put us out our misery and clinch the last spot , football doesnt need or deserve to have us in those exciting end of season  climaxes.

Since a few come on here and like to talk about our record against the top 6 this season as a reason we might do ok in the play offs, here's a wake up call -

 

Against the teams currently in the top half of the Championship, Boro have only won once (West Brom a) since October 19.

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
