That is true Brunners, Woody was let down by the players there (Browne primarily) but one of the main criticisms of that game was how we started the match - it was only after going behind that we started playing. 

Oh agreed, I've had that complaint a couple times this season; but at least he actually did change things and get a grip back on the game again which I've not felt a Boro manager would/could do in a while.

When you watch the highlights you'll see that's a of a harsh way to phrase it. He scores a bicycle kick, fires a half volley like an inch wide and has a powerful header saved point blank by Rudd. He h

Et tu DS?! I don't think I'm getting enough credit for this upturn in form. Woodgate hasn't mentioned me once and the Gazette are acting like I don't even exist 😢

Was coming on to say this. Norwich,Fulham and aston villa have all gotten promoted in recent years after  being written off by october time. Cant rule anything out, especially if we get a few reinforcements in in january.

Our April fixtures are tailor made for a late surge we play QPR, Millwall, Bristol, Reading, Cardiff, Sheff Wed most of them you can see being around the playoffs. Unlike Pulis there isn't this pent up expectation and pressure because we're doing it with academy 'fill ins' and Fletcher up front we can see upside for next season either way whether we're 6th or 12th. 

Not talking 'expecting' playoffs or anything but this run has shown alot of different things from McNair turning beast mode on vs Forest clawing us a point or Wing vs Stoke stepping up, it's set a platform now where we wont be relegated so let's take on Fulham in London in 2 weeks time see how we measure up if you take them as 'best of the playoff teams' there's only upside for us this season in my opinion.

Missed the match today but it all sounds really positive the Boro have litteraly gone from not winning away from home to beating the two best sides in the division at home in the space of a Weekend. Also really pleased Gestede is finally having a impact and hoping Ayala injury isn't too bad so he can be back for Derby.

Absolutely amazing again. The most encouraging thing is we made several changes and still looked decent. When I saw the team I thought I would be happy with a draw but to not only win but win convincingly. Hopefully Ayalas injury isnt too bad but at least next week it's not in the league. Woodgate deserves all the credit for the turnaround fingers crossed the process continues going in the right direction.

I don't know what the players Christmas Dinner was, but they need it every pre-match meal.

Two fantastic results. Let's just hope it's not because the transfer market is here and in February they'll go back to type.

4 in a row and suddenly we are nearer the playoffs than the relegation zone, points wise.

It's a funny old game.

    • Lad on FMTTM claiming Hoilett is a done deal, take from that what you will...
    • I mentioned a while back about what would attract players to come to us in comparison to other teams “at our level”.    After the good training facilities there weren’t any other suggestions.    We need to attract players to play with a vision of excitement and something that will get the riverside bouncing. Would you want to sign for hoofball and a groan filled riverside??    I wish I had the optimism of some of the members thinking that magically we will go against our norm for this transfer window. Expect more “players to drift”, players out of “boro’s budget” and “stalling talks” to be a common theme.    Even IF by some mirical you wanted to sign for us, wouldn’t you be on borrowed time whilst Warnock is only here for one more season? Added to that how he’s thrown players like Akpom under the bus, I’ll ask again. What about us as the moment is an attractive option?  🧐
    • Don’t think it’s been mentioned but Millwall are after Lumley. also an unnamed championship team have looked at William Boyle. Big centre back with a few goals in him. Don’t know anything about him and it’s probably not us but hey it’s prewindow
    • 30+? ❌ Over 6 foot? ❌ Worse than Jordan Rhodes on the ball? ❌ Don't think he'll be a target for us this summer by the looks mate
    • Forgot Liverpool still had a game in hand. A draw is the best result. Thankfully Iheanacho has just got one back.
