Hey everyone -- hope everyone is good and how great it is to be amongst fellow Boro fans on this new website! I've been living in southern California since 2007 and although I get homesick I feel a bit better by logging on and also watching and listening to the lads playing live-- Maddo is my saviour-- along with lots of other friendly names I see on this board already!
Anyway, here's looking forward to the new season under NW -- wow what a breath air this guy has pumped into our club-- it was needed, long over due you could say. I just hope we can get some decent players in and start to excite the fans once again. Onwards and upwards as they say!!
All the best
Well we only had Ramirez for half a season, with a full season of his second half form then thats a different argument.
I think with Britt starting that season rather than Nugent then we wouldn't have got promoted. We went up on goal difference so literally a point less and we don't go up.
In my opinion Britt wouldn't have been suited to play as a lone striker. He couldn't hold the ball up like Kike and his movement and workrate was nowhere near as good as Nugents.
I don't hate him, I just don't think he's suited to play as a lone striker which is the modern way in football. His goal scoring record has always been decent but I expected more from him for what we paid.
