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.

    • Yes, but Red Bull are are selling to end users. One way or another they will spend a lot of money to advertise to consumers. Therefore they can spend a lot of the marketing budget in promoting the club as long as they can show they might have to spend  a similar amount if they were  sponsoring another football club. Equally if they can show another similar company to them would spend that kind of money on football sponsorship, then they would be OK. Bulkhaul are selling to other companies and probably don’t need to advertise their services very much, so cannot justify a large spend on the front of football shirts - it wouldn’t be economic for that type of company to advertise to consumers. None of the big football sponsors are companies that don’t sell to consumers either directly or via retailers.
    • Don’t think it has changed. A club is allowed to “lose” £5m per year and on top of that, if the owner injects funds they can lose whatever he injects, up to another £8m. Therefore if the owner injects the maximum of £8m in cash, the club can lose £13m. As the assessment is over 3 year rolling period, the total losses have to be less than £39m over the three seasons. If you break even for two years in a row, then you could lose £39m in next year and still be OK. Remember however that the £39m loss  would then be included as part of the total calculation for the two subsequent seasons, so you would have to break even for those as well. All  those figures ignore the cost of operating your academy  and one or two other small items, but include both  income from  and expenditure on transfer fees as associated costs such as agent fees etc.
    • You can sponsor your club from your own company but you have to make it a fair amount.  If they believe that you're overpaying then that's when they will have issues.  From Gibson's point of view, as he's already funding the club then it probably seems pointless having Bulkhaul as a sponsor as well.
    • Very little, but the stats do and they are pretty damming.
