Randolph playing worries me if they've rushed him back from fitness.

 

Mega lolz if he gets further injured and can't play for ROI to spite Keane.

Maybe they’ve forced him to play because of the lack of commitment that you seem to think he has.

I'm fairly happy with that team, even if I dislike 5 defenders, glad to see Friend back too.

Fingers crossed.

Shame nobody took you up on your bet that he'd never play for us again.

That was my bet.  He bet that he'd be sold in January, I asked if he'd bet that he'd never play for us again.

So playing 352 probably with Wing playing in the deeper role, I'm happy with that line up.

Weather we put in a good performance is another thing though

At this stage, what I'd believe more is that Woodgate was trying to somewhat make the injuries sound worse than they are. 4 of the players he seemed to suggest could miss this game are in the squad, 3 of them in the team, Pears being on the bench.

Still, for what it's worth, they very much could have been rushed back due to the nature of the rest of the squad, certainly looking at that bench.

I think whoever said Friend is centre-back is probably right but I wouldn't be surprised to see the kind of non-formation that Pulis played at some point, with Friend almost playing left-back when going forward and centre-back when defending, shifting between 5 and 4 at the back. Which could help Johnson push out a bit more too, though it rarely actually worked for Pulis.

Pretty gutted about how Bola has turned out so far, was buzzing that we’d finally signed a young attacking left back. That said he has to be better than he’s showed so far.

I'm concerned that a few players have been rushed back too. Now is not the ideal time for them to be injured further. Big risk by Gibson Woody.

    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
