...yeah...

It has Monk written all over it .. No clue who is the best 11 and we cannot defend against crosses... De ja vu

Shotton playing left back with Browne ahead isn't too bad as you think Shotton will cope better with no cover ahead of him than Coulson/Bola did. I imagine it will be a bit like when he was playing with Adama ahead of him. 

Otherwise I think it needed freshening up and they are the only options we really have.

It smacks of a small squad who had a game that didn’t go too well on Saturday. He doesn’t have the options that Monk had.

Can't see anything but a defeat tonight. 

 

We have a soft underbelly and against a team like PNE if we don't fight and win the 50/50's we'll get turned over. 

0-2

Its a strange choice of team. It smacks of Woodgate being not sure what to do next.

It seemed a bit like that when changing formation and now bringing Tav and Browne in from the off. We look a mile away from the team that drew at Luton. He needs to find a winning formula at the same time as building a system and if this team scuffs a win I wont be moaning that he got desperate. Its if he does a Monk, scrambles around weekly for a different formula but doesnt give performances or results, that I will truly believe in AK time.

Ground 2/3 empty, how do you go from premier league to this in 3 years?

Sky red button appears to be broken too, so looks like I'm having the night off.

Actually it's on riverside live so I guess it's not meant to be on the red button?

    • I've noticed a lot of online users have signed on this week, so for you this is the history of Magic Lamp.   Little of the history of Magic Lamp has ever been published, but after helping Huddersfield to their only FA Cup win in 1922 Magic lamp disappeared for nearly forty years resurfacing in the mid sixties, found in an attic of a pawn dealer in Dagenham by a schoolboy friend of Alf Ramsey. After a bit of research he found that this indeed was the Lamp that helped Huddersfield  win the FA Cup and as a bit of joke passed the lamp onto Alf for good luck with The World Cup about to start.   Of course England went on to win, however, what wasn't known was that there was a dressing room ritual with the Magic Lamp never before published that will astound the public. In some recently discovered papers, an unpublished interview with Alf Ramsey penned by Cassandra of the Daily Mirror, which were overlooked upon his premature death in 1967, that only now can the contents be revealed.   Cassandra writes, Jimmy Greaves tipped me off about this strange ritual, intrigued I sought out Alf and he granted me an interview at his modest Ipswich bungalow and said it all started off as a bit of a joke, but it was really to take the pressure off the team and footballers being a superstitious mix embraced it. By the time we got to the Argentina match the players were starting to believe in it. Greaves was injured and refused to rub Magic lamp, I had a decision to make and brought in Hurst to the fold. Magic Lamp came to the fore that day causing Rattin to speak incomprehensible nonsense to the referee and got himself sent off, them Geoff scored a marvellous goal. By the time the final came Greavsie was fit, the press were clamouring for his return and I had a decision to make. I said to Jimmy are you a believer and he replied no and then picked up the lamp and hurled it at the dressing room wall, shouting I'm the star of this fecking team not some Magic Lamp. By good fortune Gordon (Banks) was stood at the wall talking to George Cohen and he instinctively caught Magic Lamp saving irreparable damage So my mind was made up, an unchanged team and the rest is history. As the full time time whistle blew Magic Lamp said to me, you've already won it once, tell them to go out and win it again.   There was great celebrating in the dressing room afterwards and the players said the only thing better than drinking champagne out of The World Cup, was sipping it from the delicate lips of Magic Lamp.   Alf said he wanted to take Magic Lamp to Mexico. Magic Lamp declined the offer saying he needed at least another forty year rest before exerting himself again.   Cassandra. Thank you Alf. The nation indeed owes a debt of gratitude to Magic Lamp...                                              
    • We didn’t even talk to Viduka about a new contract until it was too late. If it’s happened to Downing and Schwarzer, it probably happened to Viduka as well.
    • Wonder if Assombalonga plays this as he has a epic record against Birmingham. Also they is doubt about Watmore starting after today comments from Warnock about him suffering Covid the worst. Everything in the form book points to a easy Boro home win but this is football and we could have a typical Boro moment of Clayton or Friend scoring a hatrick 😂
