Boro V Sheffield Wednesday 1-4 (McNair)

Recommended Posts

Forget about the season still being early but I hate to say this has a familiar feeling and all the hallmarks of Sunderlands relegation season.

We seem incapable of playing basic football

Can’t believe Pulis got 7th out of this team?

He didn’t did he.  He had lots of different players.

One thing I will say is the refereeing has been bad again - not that it's made much of a difference, but he's made some inconsistent choices.

My 2 cents on our 'style' is that 'attacking' as has been described of Woodgate's style usually is 'rush it' football whether thats rush your throw in (Their 3rd goal), rush your touch, rush your press or rush your pass I don't think that style will ever guide us anywhere personally.

We'd suit a 433 possession based style maybe lack a winger still but Clayton/McNair/Wing would be tighter together we'd have more energy because we'd actually control possession and maybe we wouldn't face the 20 crosses a game we seem to face every week it's the best 'style' for the players we have and we might actually utilize our expensive full backs more by building play slower.

The people who left early are gonna have the hump when they get home and see we've won 5-4.

Or they might just go and do something that will entertain them.

That might actually be the miss of the century I'm not even sure how he's managed that.

Nothing anyone can do today to turn this around you do not get many 4-4 draws so it is game over, however I hope no-one refers to this as simply a bad day at the office because the amount of pressure we are under next game is enormous.

Woodgate needs to fess up and rip into the players after today's performance

How did Britt miss that 

Because he misses chances far more than scores and missing only amplifies the situation. We are not a confident team anymore

    • Boro flashback this day the 9th April 1988 Boro v Man City Boro's last home game was a 6-0 thrashing of Sheffield United, on top of that the mighty Boro have not been beaten home,, or away since 27th February 1988 when we went down 2-0 at Bradford On the last home game when scoring 6 Stuart Ripley bagged a hattrick, he carried on where he left off by opening the scoring as Boro took the lead, Gary Hamilton increased the lead, Man City pulled a goal back but the mighty Boro held on to keep the points on Teesside & continue the challenge keeping pace the running pack for promotion Bruce's team  Stephen Pears  Gary Hamilton - wearing No2 for the 1st time that season Colin Cooper - Ever present Tony Mowbray - Ever present Gary Parkinson - Ever present Gary Pallister - Ever present Bernie Slaven - Ever present Stuart Ripley  Trevor Senior  Paul Kerr - Ever present Mark Burke Stay safe 
    • I think but not 100%, they have built and now moved into a house near Manchester. 
    • Fully recovered (bar my sense of smell and taste) and back in work! 
    • Over the last few years I seem to remember pictures of them building a bigger house, which I don't think was this one.. So maybe they've just finally moved into it.
    • Surely the specialist would be to replace George, then the expected squad player would be to replace Johnson - so you may as well keep him.
