Boro v Nottingham Forest (a) 0-3

Recommended Posts

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

 

I won’t leave you on your own CT. You have my full support. Good man yourself

Keep wearing those blinkers, your entitled to your opinion but what the hell are you watching because your certainly not watching what the rest of us are, that's for sure.

Talk about see no wrong *** hell.

 

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

 

If you can't see that something is badly wrong with the club then keep burying your head in the sand and see where that gets you.  No one on here is trash talking the club, it's the manager and the pathetic performances from overpaid players that are unacceptable.

I think you'll find the majority on here support the club through thick and thin, and have had their season tickets a long time including myself, but they're not in denial as to what's happening on the pitch, if your happy with it fair enough, we obviously both differ on the standard and level of football we enjoy watching.

We probably will still finish 6th, apart from the top 3 there is no quality at all in this league, we are playing a side at home who have been around the relegation zone all season then a side already relegated.

 

Bristol and Derby are awful sides, they aren’t good enough to win their remaining games.

 

League is such poor quality, if any other manager in this league had this squad with the money Pulis has spent they would have 100 points

Actively looking for us not to go up. You think being defensive against forest who have lost 3 on the spin is something he would attack.

 

Imagine Pulis in the prem setting up for a butt *** each week.

 

Forget money

Forget promotion

 

I just want to love boro again and with Pulis at the helm, it isn't happening.

To be honest I find it hard to understand the optimists who never criticise anything. I don’t understand how you can’t get angry about something you care about being so unbelievably bad.

The worst team I can remember in my history of supporting the club of near 5 decades. So diabolically bad it’s laughable. Oh the once town hero SG what have you done.

In any situation, be it good or bad, surely the best thing is to call a spade a spade.

 

The football is crap. It has been for 80% of the season. Even the performances when we win have been generally fairly average.

 

Any manager in the championship would have fancied their chances of promotion with our squad. Most would have played more attractive football and I think most would consider battling to reach a playoff spot as a failure.

 

In my opinion (like many others) this is primarily down to 1 man and that's the manager, though I like many would certainly say that SG and the hierarchy aren't completely blameless.

 

We all want our team to do well. We all want to be a competitive club in whichever league we are In, playing entertaining football. And if that could be the premier league then we would be delighted.

 

However, if someone said at the beginning of the season (given that I was hugely anti-pulis back then too) that I would be happy for a foreign investor to come in and buy the club (or at least a major share) I would have laughed in their face. NOT NOW.

 

Their is a huge problem with our club right now. Their is a huge disconnect between the club and its fans. Gibsons only comments worth note this season have been about other clubs. The fans feelings have been ignored and we have had to put up with Tony saying nice things and then going against his own words. "Tav should have had more time on the pitch......" Well we currently have to play midfielders at full back so now there must be room for him. But no, lies damned lies and statistics. It's all we get from him.

 

It's time for the club to move on. In so many ways.

I think we've got 2 hard games Reading have taken points of Norwich, Bristol City, West Brom and though it looks like Rotherham are going down they are still fighting it out with Millwall for Championship survival. Last home game of the season they'll battle regardless in front of their own fans.

The stats really say everything about the manager and the team. Shots 3 and 1 on target against 20 and 9 on target. I don’t want to waste time or the embarrassment in the play offs although I don’t believe we will make them. We don’t deserve to be there we are s**t.

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.

 

Derby also have to play at Bristol City, at Swansea and at home to West Brom so it's not like they are nailed on for any more points this season.  Bristol City have Derby obviously and two away games at Hull and Millwall.  There's no reason why we can't win both of our remaining games (other than the obvious reasons regarding us being lousy) but really we could easily finish on 73 points meaning Derby and Bristol City would have to win at least two of their final three games.  As they have to play against each other that is obviously trickier for them.

Oh I'll happily trash the team.  I just think we have a reasonable shot of finishing 6th still.

Reading are playing really well I could definitely see them beating us. It may be a kindness that saves Boro from a stuffing from Leeds in the play offs.

    • 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.
