Boro V Reading 1-0 (Johnson)

Recommended Posts

You know what, guys? 

The last 4 games has given us the magical 2 points a game average! 

And with a little more luck we would have been up there, where it's funny to be. 

I am looking forward to us playing any of the top favourites this season... If we don't get hammered in those games .. Then we might be up there come May!

Here is one of Randolphs two saves btw for anyone that hasn't managed to catch highlights yet.

I can see me in this video, they didn't catch me putting my face in my hands in panic, though ? 

Anyway, it's great to see some positivity from people on here and in the ground today!

I thought Clayton and McNair were class today. Bola has some way to go but hes only young. Dijksteel is getting better and better. Fry looked sharper today after his Bristol struggles. Johnson had some good moments but he needs to cut out some of the needless fancy flicks. 

Worth remembering our whole coaching system has changed,Those green shoots I saw Two weeks ago have got a little bigger

Quote fro Reading fans' website:

I'd also like to make a shout out to Middlesbrough as a much better than expected away day. Its consistently voted the worst place to live in the UK, but it's a nice walk from the station to the ground. There was also a great pub next to the station showing the cricket and early and late kick offs. Boro fans and punters very friendly and good chat.

Also saw Middlesbrough were giving free advertising to Zoe's Place, a children's hospice in the area which is due to close because of funding. I'll happily be contributing a bit.

Due to Family Boro being away and not available to do the Cardiff thread I have asked Erimus74  to do the honours a thread which will be full of information and probably a very good read.

7 games in and I think we are as good and as bad as every other team in this division.

Green shoots of recovery being mentioned a lot now good to see

Just to come back to the discussion about Dijksteel, he got in the WhoScored team of the week so he must've been doing something right.

Dijskteel got a 7.9 rating from whoscored..... Randolph 8.7 and Johnson 7.8 all three made it into the team of the week

 

edit: second on the ball I see.....

Fair enough. Happy to be wrong, to be fair. ?

Just shows how different we sometimes see players. I went to see my local team yesterday where I’m a season ticket holder. I was getting really annoyed by our striker and thought he was quite poor. As did another bloke behind me. But I came back home and he was getting rave reviews on forums?

That was quite an enjoyable game, very happy with the result. While it was only a 1-0 victory i don't think there was any doubt (other than maybe the last 15) that we were going to win. Overall we were the better side.

You can see us getting better and better each week. I am looking forward to the tougher games as i genuinely believe that we will rise to the occasion.

    • Thing is, we almost certainly will offer him less money. And I don't think based on what he's said that he'd outright deny just less than what he's on. But tackling the wage bill would appear to need more movement than that and actually, a significantly less wage. I wouldn't expect him to stay on those terms. I'd say if the club really cares about wanting to keep him around, they need to approach it carefully, even if they are going to low-ball him to begin with, don't be a *** about it and expect him to say yes to anything because of a commitment to the club. Have a high boundary that you can't go beyond, work up to it and if his representatives think he should say no to our highest offer then we leave it at that and on good terms. No taking the ***, no expecting him to be accepting a pittance for his services on the back of the club as a whole's mistakes, something much bigger than Ayala's responsibility at this club. Most importantly for me, we have to accept the likelihood he leaves and hopefully wish him all the best if he does. I think he's been a great servant for us and I hope, unlike Derby, we treat him as professionally as he's treated being a player for this club.

    • How many Boro players are out of contract come January,?    
    • It's hard to be impressed with a 7-0 win, why not just be happy with it then?  We're Boro fans and we've scored 13 goals in 16 games this season by way of comparison. I can be more than happy as an England fan watching them score 7 against anyone.  France beat Moldova 2-1 and Serbia beat Luxembourg 3-2 last night while England were failing to impress with their 7-0 win.
