Boro v Cardiff City A 0-1

Recommended Posts

I get all that and I agree things will take time, I’m not talking about the future though I’m talking about the now and I get the impression that we should just accept any performances because we try to attack more and it’s not pulis.

Sorry but if I see a bad performance I’m gonna say so, it wasn’t like we lost to the better team or squandered chances, we were just poor. I’m not saying woodgate should be sacked, I’m not saying he’s a failure, this thread is about the Cardiff game and in that game we were ***.

I don't think anyone thinks the performance was good. I'm just not putting much stock into a game I expected us to lose for the reasons we lost it. The best I can say is we tried to do something different to how we played against Millwall, the last time we played a team like this. Between the two games, I think yesterday's loss of points was more down to individual performances than the tactical battle which is a positive for the tactics as much as it's a negative for some of the individuals in the team. Maybe next time, if we pick the right players, we'll get something more out of the game. It's early days, we can be forgiven right now for thinking we have room to experiment and not be too worried whether it goes right or wrong. That's all part of the learning curve.

I couldn't watch the game (sounds like I was lucky with that). Just watched the highlights and it looked like a fair result. We created one and half chance the entire game and thats just not good enough. Awful. Briliant header by Fletcher though ?

    • I think Boro currently identify as non-descript
    • Four Four Fooking Two...... lol
    • Yeah I know you do mate, as do others, and that's fair enough although I think it's been a bit over-egged myself.
    • Our most successful periods were the 70s where we were built on a strong defence and the McClaren era which also started with a solid base. Our last promotion under Karanka was also built from the back.  We've had seasons where we've signed superstars and played some great football but I think our most success has been where we've been solid at the back.  We've had spells where we've produced good youngsters but I don't think our academy has been that spectacular for a while now.  Honestly I don't think our identity is that much different to 90% of other clubs in the country. I like us having a white band on our shirt because I think that makes us different but I don't think the club even care about that.  I'd be happy with foreign investment as long as they didn't change the colour we play in or the team name. If we became Middlesbrough RB I could live with that I suppose. We've had a sponsored stadium before so that wouldnt be an issue and I don't think foreign owners could be any more disconnected from the fanbase as Gibson is.  We never see him or hear from him now and the ticket prices seem to have alienated a lot of our fans as well. I'm not saying we should jump at the first foreign owner that's potentially interested but for the right party I'd be happy to move on from Gibson. 
    • Great thread Uwe. I’ll try and answer your important questions: Can Boro get anything from the game? Yes, they can get beaten   Strongest Team/Formation? Leeds Will Woody still be here after the International break? I expect so, he likes being the manager and Gibbo won’t want to upset him. Why do you hate Leeds? I don’t hate Leeds, but I’m not overly keen on the traffic system in the town centre. Why aren’t people that order steak ‘Well Done’ sent straight to prison? I don’t think I’ve seen anyone order a steak since the early 80’s.
