Horrible weather for it. Hope the Boro can lift my spirits as the only thing worse than watching Boro lose is watching Boro lose with soggy trousers...

Got to be winning this though, by hook or by crook. 2-0 Boro

I get soggy trousers whether its raining or not most days its called old age...just saying

I do hope he has learnt from that mistake.

It might not have been too bad if it wasn't for the fact we were down to 10 men, to be fair. One of the biggest problems we had was we went from having 2-3 men closing down up top to just the 1, making it very easy for them to pass it around Britt. Fletch was playing a bit deeper at times, giving their midfield and defenders something to think about, losing Fletch hindered us more than introducing Clayton did, IMO.

Also Tav was pretty poor defensively..

Worst weather of the season, and it's on the red button.

The crowd tonight will be tiny.

I'm going, but the cozy front room is so tempting.

And we all saw how well that went

I don't think any of my friends want relegation, it's more a case of people second guessing the clubs way of thinking. Like CT says maybe Gibson isn't actually that bothered if we go down either. 

As for learning from past mistakes, well it's not something we do very well is it!

Rain or shine, nothing will stop me from turning up tonight! That's right, whether it continues to rain or if the sun miraculously comes back up and shines down on the Riverside, I'll be there. Come on Boro!

I think one thing we learned about Adam Clayton on Sunday is don't let him take set-pieces. Not because of the quality of the delivery but because if we get a ref who cares about time-wasting enough to book people for it, we could lose one of the best instances of every game.

First game for me since August. Looks like I picked a good night for it! Hope the performance makes up for the lousy weather.

    • although ill always like gibson for what hes done for the club, by no means is he above scrutiny and has to take a chunk of the blame for the current situation.  first mistake was not backing Karanka in January when in the prem, then sacking him only to replace him with Agnew for the rest of the season.  then bringing in Monk which seemed like a good appointment and backing him to the hill with 50 mil only to sack him after 6 months. He needed a season at least to show what he could do, also  sacking a mananger after a win is something ill never understand. Then when the fans were already deflated, he brought the man renowned for playing the dullest football known to man tony Pulis. watching pulis ball was the worst experience of life as a boro fan, i actually found myself wanting us to lose games just so he would get sacked thats how depressing i found it and i know i wasnt alone in that view. after 18 months the horror pulis ends only to replaced by the horror of woodgate, an unproven manager taking over a club that needed an experienced man at the helm. the woodgate saga just compounded the doom and gloom and has left us destined for league 1, how woodgate survived so long after twice going 10 games without a win is beyond me. where was that loyalty when monk was in charge? it seems gibson it just doing one bad decision after another, and tbh you could trace all the mistakes as far back as the sacking of southgate when we were coming 3rd, again a sacking a manager after a win.  the appointment of strachen etc.  Appointing karanka is arguably the only decision he has got right in the past 12 years.  Honestly not sure where we go from here. but club needs a complete overhaul and copy the formula of modern successful club as currently, it we appear to be stuck in the dark ages with no sign of light. 
    • Take him to the Bongo club. x
    • That'll be either of them against Boro in the league.
    • I'm not even sure you can class what Boro play as football these days...maybe take him to watch Darlington or Hartlepool?
    • In lieu of that guy, I can offer you these cellists...seems somehow appropriate at this time.
