Boro version of Rodwell 😫

Faking injury so no sympathy regards his contract from me 🤨 not exactly busting a gut to get in the team is he

I very much doubt he is faking injury

Id imagine he is in the difficult situation of:

 

He wants to play and possibly convince someone to offer him a contract in the summer

He gets injured easily and doesnt want to risk being injured when his contract expires

He gets booed by his own fans

That's a pretty strong accusation, saying he's faking an injury, I assume there's something to back that up @pokeyjoe?

Tbf it may well be true, he is a consummate actor, he’s be been able to convince people he’s a footballer for the past decade.

He was dead to me after missing that header vs Swansea in our prem days where we drew 0-0.

Just at the end after Negredo's quality pass. 

But yeah, worst decision to sign him. You wonder if we'd gone for someone who we all identified in that window what might have been...

I wonder who came up with Gestede..

Knowing our club he probably has a clause saying he gets a 2 year extension if he makes another appearance.

If he sticks around long enough then he might get a go at being manager.

If he isnt faking then maybe football isnt for him anymore, maybe he could try flower arranging

The staggering amount of injuries this bloke has apparentely had leads me to think he has no intention of putting on a Boro shirt again on a matchday

I cannot help but see the uncanny similarities with Rodwell who seems to doinv OK now 🤔 he left the Mackems and bled them for as much as possible 

Maybe i,m wrong

So it's a baseless accusation then, because he's not in the squad very often he must be faking injury, well done on making that jump. I'd love to understand the link between him and Rodwell here, Rodwell is currently without a club, he's hardly 'doing OK now'. The only link is that nobody else would pay him what he was earning and that's not down to either player, that's down to ridiculous spending from both us and Sunderland respectively.

As far as I can tell, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the lad's personal motivation to get in the team. He keeps getting injured and keeps coming back into the squad around the right time you'd expect. But hey, considering the lad gets booed onto a pitch when he does turn up, God knows why he would want to fight to get back for anything other than his wage. It could even be that not all of his injuries are physical conditions and that actually, it's pretty depressing to come to work and get shouted at non-stop and get called a donkey and all-sorts.

By all accounts I've seen from him, he's a good human being and I think some of the treatment he gets is beyond ridiculous. He slipped up at Newport but again, you give someone that level abuse over a long time and the credit is with the guy who doesn't absolutely flip, it doesn't immediately make them a wrong-un.

Wow thats some rant youve got

I have my opinion of this sorry situation of a player who seems to get injured lacing his boots these days and without any doubt you have yours

If i have offended you Mr Gestede sorry Wilson feel free to vent your anger to the many many thousands of Boro fans who see this bloke as a total fraud of a fiotballer even when he is fit

But he is a nice guy so thats alright 

 

Jesus wept 🙄

Except you didn't spell it out as an opinion to begin with, did you. You simply said he is faking injury. With nothing to base it on other than thinking it's a bit like one other player who may have done the exact same thing, which is a tenuous link at best. You're tarring him with the same brush surely for no other reason than he's a footballer who has contributed very little to our club and if the thousands of supporters of fans who see him as a total fraud started pointing the finger in the direction of the person actually responsible for that rather than booing him on and off the pitch and giving him abuse based on made up facts, maybe something would change.

    • Well some positives is that we have never lost a game played on a Wednesday at 3pm! Boro fans will not be heckled by spotty juvenille Millwall fans. No seats will be uprooted and thrown onto the pitch. So all in all a great time for another away win. Team selection up to the boss just hope the players themselves are fed up with being the anti -idols of Teesside and will make amends, he says in confidence having already travelled into the future😏 Oh come on Blanco did say that I needed hope!
    • What changes would you make for this game? Well I'd at least try playing defenders in defence and midfielders in midfield...see how that works out. Other than that, I'm not sure it makes any difference what team or formation NW goes with.   Is boro's only hope of survival Wigan's point deduction? Certainly looks that way, based on the evidence so far. The guy is Boro and the rope represents our Championship status...in case you hadn't guessed.   You have to fight either Kevin Blackwell or Ronnie Jepson. Which would you pick and why? What're you lookin' at? You want some? Cos I'll fight you all if I have to. Yeah I'm drunk...so what?     Anyway, back to the match. Millwall are sitting pretty comfortably in the league and are still in with a shout of the play-offs. They score marginally more than they concede and are the Championship draw specialists with 17 so far - more than any other team. Recent form has been a bit patchy - W2 D2 L1 but they will still easily pull Boro's shorts down and give us a good spanking on Wednesday. Prediction: Millwall 3 - 0 Boro.  
    • The players are that abject and low on confidence atm if we try out play Millwall, we will get beat so id go for (first 80 mins) - .............................Pears................................. Diijksteel...Moukidi..Fry......Friend....Coulson Howson..........Clayton...Saville..............Nmecha ................................Britt................................. Focus on keeping a clean sheet and building confidence up, while sapping millwalls confidence,you tell everyone if in doubt launch it up the field no taking risks, no silly freekicks. Hopefully tire them out in the process.  Id then in last 10 mins switch to smash and grab mode  -  ....................................Pears.................................. Howson.....Moukidi........Fry......................Coulson Roberts..........Morrison....Mcnair.................Tav ........................Britt.....Fletcher..........................  
    • I wonder if Villa will find themselves in a bit of bother especially if they get relegated. I seem to remember they were being scrutinised last season.
