A bit of fun

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Inspired by the Pulis quote about fielding 11 Stewart Downings, I would like you to think about, which current Boro player would win the Boro Championship, if it was possible to field 11 of the same player ???

Which player x 11 would be superior? 

 

1, 2, 3 go!

 

And feel free to add different story lines of What would happen if 11 x Ayala played v 11 x Randolph... 

Or other 11 v 11

I feel like your best chance has to be 11x a goalscoring defender as will stop the goals going in as well as getting them scored, so Ayala, or Flint but not for us.

Adama  if it was two seasons ago.   at least all the other team members would be on the same wavelength  for once. ?

What about 11 x McNair? 

He can defend, he can midfield and score too.. But can he be a keeper ?

George Friend. Just 11 Georges constantly pushing the hair out of their eyes. There's a Loreal advert in there somewhere. Might be able to afford 11 Eberechi Ezes from the sponsorship.

I'll take 11 Randolph's

We saw against Millwall he can defend, he can dribble, he can pick a pass and obviously he's the best keeper in the league. I'm sure he won't score any more or less than we currently do!

Interesting question, considering we're currently playing like we've got 11 Marcus Brownes in the squad.

Can we have 11 Leos? He demonstrates more passion for the Boro on the touchline most weeks than our entire starting XI combined.

If we can't have 11 Leos, probably 11 Darren Randolphs. Calm under pressure, hugely talented, and more likely to find a team-mate than a lot of his outfield companions. And his kicks aren't always feeble 20-yard shanks to the opposition (cough)Shotton(cough).

I don't know man, if Millwall was any indication he's been taking tips from Shotton!

Remember that Derby home game where Vydra got a hat trick? Pretty sure Randolph gave away the last one due to a dodgy kick.

He's improved on his kicking since then but that is certainly one of his weaknesses. Still, so long as he manages to pull off a wonder save every time he gives it away, eh... ?

At least Randolph's cock-ups are fairly few and far between - most games he's a seven out of ten for us. Compared to other players who seem to earn consistent fours in the Gazette rankings and OB post-match reviews...

Ads Clayton. Defensively solid under Karanka and a goal scorer at Huddersfield he was the first that sprung to mind. But also Paddy MAC is a good shout too

    • The biggest failure post-relegation is spending transfer sums on getting back up with a manager who'd never been promoted. If we look back with retrospective eyes, Pulis should never have been forced to come in when he did. If we'd had someone as capable of Jokanovic and had given them £50m to spend, we could have been alright. I don't recall there being many of that ilk around and we wanted to go with the young prospective coaches with some experience, for sure. But we could have done that whole summer differently and change the fortunes since. I mean the context of the situation is important, the club wanted to send a message that summer and spending the money we did was the best way it knew to send that message. But the wrong man had control of it, it was a huge risk to blow all that money on fees and wages and the project was poor conceptually. I suspect Gibson knows he got Monk wrong and that's why he's tried to drag his name through the mud since. Even having said all that though, we know as a result that the club is not run particularly well. We know it all the sooner for not having had a successful manager during that time. It was only going to take one significant risk going wrong for the curtain to fall and maybe it is better for the long-term stability of the club that most of us (on here at least) see it for what it is at the top.
