Hi very long time reader, and I usually love reading what people have got to say but do people really think we are relegation candidates if we don’t win our next match. I know it has not been the grea

Saturday 17th August 2019 - 3pm KO - Ewood Park Preview: Both sides come into this fixture following home league cup fixtures against lower league opposition - Blackburn oversaw a battling O

Ok far too many members have now been made aware that in the opinion of Riverside Dreamer moderating action by Boro_Unger was unfair and uncalled for and some members were siding with his views.

Against Brentford we definitely had Clayton sitting deep and Wing and NcNair pressing further up. In a 3 man midfield triangle. Seems like we have gone away from that completely.

Oh yeah, I get that.  But that's only part of our game plan surely?  I said the other day that in my opinion the only thing that's really different between this season and last is how high we are trying to defend up the pitch.  Now we press, last season we didn't and were happier to drop back.  What about with the ball though, where's the improvement cos I'm not seeing it.

I just don't get like people have said, if we had no ambition why didn't we just cash in on Britt and co?

Could've made us financially able to actually have a go at scoring more than a goal a game next season

I have to say, that if Gibson was in charge of the NHS and picked my doctors, I'd be dead now............he's an even worse chairman than Mike Ashley and you know what N/cle fans think of him...............it is time he went along with all of the board.

I think Woody is going to be another Mogga............local hero to bluddy zero

I think weve seen some improvement in flashes. The play before wings goal vs Luton was great and I dont think we would have seen it under pulis. But yes, certainly havent seen any consistent improvement.

In hindsight it definitely looks like we should have sold him and bought two or three attackers instead.

Friend is one of our better "players" today .. Solid at that left back

That isn't hard.

We are so *** poor going forward. Trying to build a attacking team with Marvin Johnson as our only attacking creative  player.

If this performance carries on does he come out and repeat 'terrible performance' that he already used in midweek? He's putting himself in such a weak position people can blame Gibson for hiring him but he's turned us into a soft centred ill disciplined team very quickly just like Monk did it's really not good enough the excuses don't run that deep when you keep Britt/Randolph.

This is horrid so far. Trying to find positives but cannot see anything, rovers have controlled the game so far and we've barely challenged them. I honestly am struggling to see where our next point is coming from. Hoping to see a much improved second half but not holding my breath. Stupid play from Dijksteel.

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
