Wing's corners were largely awful last season, after the first few games. But given that everyone else had the same issue, hopefully that was more to do with Pulis than the player.

You could see Wing has been practising the Adama corner, once he came on at the weekend. 

Whipped with pace to the back edge of the 6yard box

Luton have signed two recent Boro players during the last month  so we could be up against them ....Butterfield and Crainie.

Ah butterfield, there's a name I completely forgot about! Seemed a very promising player until he actually played for us. I think we even made a profit on him?

I guess Clayton has had his shooting/scoring ironed out of his game during his time at Boro. I'd love to see him get on the score sheet again this season though! As Wilson says, would be harsh to drop him, given his pre-season.

I was chatting to a mate who is a Luton fan. He was talking about being 3-0 down after 14 minutes against Norwich last week. He reckons they are dodgy at the back, and seems pretty sure they will concede. Hopefully we can manage to concede less than they do..... but 2-2 I reckon!

Didn't Luton lose a few of their best players on getting promoted?

Yes they did. Including both of their fullbacks who were integral to the way they set up to play, exactly like the way we are going to try and play from now on. I think they will be a big loss to Luton.

Stacey was sold to Bournemouth and was a vital part of thier set up as Blanco said. wierd thing is we could have had him for 500k two seasons ago but didnt persue it at the time . Now were desperate for the same type of player.

Prediction time. How many times are we going to be called ‘jonathan Woodgate’s middlesbrough side’ Friday?

My guess is 15 times. And that’s before the game starts

Both have gone to Premier league clubs too. Justin to Leicester and Stacey to Bournemouth. As others have mentioned Luton's play was geared towards those two bombing forward to provide width.

Think they will come out an attack us from the off. Which could play into our hands.

What else shall we put on the Bingo card? A few things about Pulis, I imagine.

'He might have been part of Pulis' regime but...'

'This isn't a Pulis team anymore'

'Assombalonga will have more support than in a Pulis team'

One for the season. If we are struggling to score and a camera shot of Robbie Keane

"They could do with someone like him in their team now"

If this happens less than 20 times I'll be gobsmacked.

    • Was thinking earlier on about ex Boro players who would fit straight away into the current set up from the Robson era before the days of Junihio and the like and whether or not with the current squad are there any players you would be able to compare them with? Kick this off and ask would Robbie Mustoe and John Hendrie  improve the current set up and are there any current Boro players who remind you of them? And how good were those two? Think Howson and maybe to a degree Tavernier remind me of Mustoe, John Hendrie is an enigma in my mind because there simply is no-one who reminds me of him currently but for sure I really think his style and commitment would be a massive boost to the current squad. Your thoughts on this and any players come to mind for comparison purposes?
    • Don't know if already mentioned but this was the first league double over Forest for 64 years! Season 55/56 boy what a long wait!
    • COVID did make us not train for 2 weeks and force at least one still recovering player into the starting 11. I'm not willing to confirm what that did or did not cause us to do on the pitch because we don't really know.
    • COVID didn’t make the players hoof the ball up field every time instead of playing intelligent passes. 
    • Am I right in thinking the employment tribunal is more to find out whether the process of him getting the sack was followed correctly. Not necessarily whether he should have been sacked or not? If that's the case the potentially Derby in terms of following the procedures are in the wrong, but their reasoning behind sacking him could be justified. Like I said in my original post I think there is more to come from this and it'll probably take a while to be resolved.
