Boro v Birmingham City (A) 1-2 (Ayala)

Recommended Posts

Everything you don't want from your team was on show tonight, and it's happening far too often.

 

From Sheff Weds last week, to this. Had we not done alright v Preston, it would have been the worst week for Boro for many a year.

Something needs to change.

Not just that but he actually whiffed on the first punch which is what had him panicking into that bad 2nd punch.

Can’t blame him for the odd mistake when he makes 4 or 5 super saves, at some point you have to question the players in front of you

I did feel that winning goal coming even after we scored, to be honest. Not just because they deserved it but it just didn't feel right after the goal at all.

Woodgate needs to go back to what he promised to play or he needs to resign.

I don't think he knows how to get them playing that way.

This place, lol. Last season, there was nothing that could possibly be worse than Pulis. Now so many justifying what he brought to us. You couldn't make it up.

Yeah I don't get that, Pulis was still garbage, in a different context.

This is a different type of garbage.

We end every game with 40 something possession whether it's PRESTON at home or CARDIFF away how does that = goals?

Empty his promise and talk of 'goals hitting the net' I'm not sure where else there is to go with him it's a fundamentally flawed footballing setup the premise is 'our ball your ball' and 'quicker quicker' the whole thing's aimless and flawed there's no turnaround to be had we give up too much possession and crosses, by design, to keep clean sheets and on the ball we aren't setup at all at times we look like a pub team we stick 4 up front keep 4 back pass it 2 yards a couple of times and...?

I think we are playing even worse than we ever did under Gordon Strachan and he realised he was hopeless so Woodgate if you have any pride you'll hand us over to someone who knows how to set a side up otherwise we will be doing a Sunderland before long

So is this team playing better now than last year in your opinion?

Only positive for me is we can't drop in to the bottom 3 this weekend. And there's no football next Saturday. I genuinely worried about this season. Genuinely feels like a Sunderland Till I Die in slow motion right now.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
