Hate that we're 5 at the back again especially with that personnel I'd rather a back 4 and push Howson to midfield, Spence has been prone to switch off in games whenever he's called up not confident in him going into this, Saville's an absolute clownshow in a holding role whenever he's in a pivot especially with Clayton it's god awful we get 35% possession without Saville's loose touches I reckon him being in costs us 10 extra turnovers a game.

Positive note I'm glad Clayton's back in the team still think him and Howson are our best midfielders as for Coulson I'd say him and Bola have both messed up defensively so hard to say who the better pick is right now. That bench has 2 good young midfield options, Wood, Bola and Ste Walker I mean maybe no 'gamechanger' offensive player but Liddle/Wood could easily slot in a 5 at the back home team vs Charlton but we'll see how he uses the bench.

Ohhhhh this isn't going to be pretty.

Fairly normal Saturday afternoon then?

Close your eyes, grip your chair tightly and make sure you've got a strong alcoholic drink handy for the aftermath... 🥴

Feeling strangely confident about this one now.

Going to go 3-0 Boro

Heh. I think you're overdoing your medication.

 

I'd settle for another Barnsley kind of result...even if I'm not sure my nerves can take it.

So we're playing eight defensive players and three attacking ones??

Really hope we win (especially if Warnock is waiting in the wings), but that's a setup Pulis would have been proud of.

    • I don't think a Red Bull takeover would be ruinous for the club: 1. We already play in red and white, so a splash of yellow in our kit isn't going to change it the way a red/white/yellow kit would materially affect Chelsea or West Brom. 2. Red Bull couldn't change our club's name under FA rules. Our history and identity would be protected to a degree, at least. 3.  It's not like they'd have to build a new stadium to enable MFC to flourish. The Riverside is fine. Again, heritage preserved. 4. If they wanted to rename the stadium the Red Bull Riverside, is it really worse than the BT Cellnet Riverside? 5. Our club is sinking into obscurity at present. Red Bull have a proven track record of making clubs successful, and after the last ten years, we could do with their guidance. 6. There are far fewer ethical concerns about being owned by an energy drinks company than by Emiratis, obscure shell corporations or Mike Ashley. Or Karl Oyston. Or Steve Dale. Or anyone else who decides to make Steve Gibson an offer in future. 7. I'd much rather see people walking around Middlesbrough advertising energy drinks on their replica shirts than the assorted pawnbrokers and bookmakers we've been sponsored by since the late Noughties. 8. It does appear Steve Gibson is losing interest in MFC, and his decision making over the last decade has been fairly absymal. Wouldn't it be nice to have a clear identity, a sense of direction, and a long-term plan? Even a Director of Football, for Christ's sake? As for the reactions of other clubs' supporters, (a) IDGAF, and (b) they'd just be jealous. Red Bull are a typically efficient Germanic organisation who have successfully disrupted every industry they've entered. They know what they're doing. Can the same be said for our current owner, who has been trading on past glories for over a decade?
    • Sorry if this has been asked already but is there going to be a match thread for Barnsley game?
    • Go on then, why are Red Bull so terrible?
    • I guess the main difference is that Red a Bull took over a tiny non league club in Leipzig, rather than an established championship club. I would imagine there was a lot less resistance to change there, than there would be here as Boro already have an estimated identity.    A closer parallel would be if Red Bull came in and took over Blyth Spartans, changed their name to Racing Blyth Spartans and took them up from the Northern National League to the Prem, I’m sure there would be one or objections from die hard fans, but the club would attract many new fans as they rose through the divisions. I guess that scenario would take a lot longer, but be a lot more organic.
