Boro v Birmingham 1-1 (Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

Birmingham appear to play a 4-4-2 for the most part, I would like to see us slowly moving back to the 4-3-3 as I think that’s Woodgate’s longer term plan.
 

But a 3-4-3 is definitely better suited to facing that sort of system Birmingham like to play in my opinion. Give Spence the rest he needs, get the best front 3 back together and I’m confident. 3-1 Boro 👍🏼

Would seem that the game together with Barnsley V PNE will not be shown either as live or rbf so a case of goals as they go in being shown on Sky Sports.

Need to get back to winning ways otherwise Boro-unger will be recalled pdq

Opening post updated with Woodgate quotes. Unfortunately you need to be an MFC digital user to watch the video I posted because they don't just bang them on youtube straight away anymore

As in the early part of the season we are dropping points by fine margins. The last two games were lost because of slow starts and went behind. The recent draws were down to not being able to to finish the games off.  
This leaves me with reasonable doubt the team is better than Woody is managing to get out of them and estimate we are somewhere short of 10 to 15 points.

Word of warning to anyone coming down, in case you come/leave this way, the road by the college is closed off at the T-junction next to Boho 5. They're currently making a through road from Windward Way to Lower Feversham Street. Means Priestman Road is probably going to be rammed tonight. It'll be fine for pedestrians walking, just in case you're driving.

You'll be fine if you park on the other side of the college by the way but you might just be wary as there's a temporary 3-way traffic lights junction set up on Cleveland Street in front of Boho 4 which will slow the traffic onto the A66 past the train station even more, no doubt. Might be best either going through Vulcan Street then either following through the industrial estate or back onto Bridge Street via Snowdon Road.

Have we fallen out with Sky? We haven’t been on for quite a few games in a row on Tuesdays

Why is it that we seem to be the only team that isnt on red button all the time, surely this should be equal?

    • I said that it’s “foreseeable” that she could have made it up. That’s a completely different thing to the way that you have interpreted it, which triggered you into attacking me. Again, your reaction is what I was pushing back against; that of someone instinctively jumping on Randolph as being guilty based upon, so far, unfounded allegations. The police will investigate and the CPS will decide whether a prosecution is warranted. Up until then, any public lynching of Randolph is dangerous. Please read my above post about how thorough the CPS are with high profile domestic abuse allegations, especially when compared to other areas of the law. If he is charged and subsequently found guilty then I will be equally strong in my condemnation. Your view is based entirely upon his ex telling the truth. My view is based upon no one knowing who is telling the truth, and trusting a police investigation to come to the bottom of it. I’m confident that my approach is fairer and more reasonable than your lynch mob approach.
    • First part, I have no doubt that he didn't want those players in January.  The players he did want weren't exactly a guarantee of success however.  But putting that to one side, we signed lots of players in the summer and we won 4 games out of 27.  I don't know what was going on behind the scenes and who was bringing in players etc but I see no reason to think that the January transfer window would have seen an improvement in our form if we'd signed the likes of Jese or Bojan.  So no, January wasn't his downfall in my opinion. Second part, to me as a fan, being crap in one league is no different to being crap in another league was my point.  You might love the idea of watching us lose in the Premier League rather than the Championship but I don't.  Losing is losing and playing badly is playing badly.  Who gives a crap what league you're in when you're doing that?  I don't, makes absolutely no difference to me at all.  The last two Premier League seasons we've had have been two of the worst seasons in my life.  If you're saying that Karanka could come in, make us play better in this league then yeah I think he probably could, he certainly couldn't do much worse.  But aren't we looking for more?  Maybe it's just me because whenever we have these conversations I seem to be one of the few saying it but I want to see a good team, playing good football and being as successful as we can be.  I don't believe Karanka did that with us so I'm not pining for him in the way that others are and I don't think that Woodgate doing a bad job means I want to accept a repeat of what happened while Karanka was here.
    • Can we not just all agree that our last ten managers have all been rubbish and probably the ten before them. 
    • I understand that but my point is if you're rubbish then you're rubbish.  I've got no problem with saying that Karanka is a better manager than Woodgate because I'm certain that he is and if he was here with this squad then we'd be higher up the league table.  I'm just saying that we were rubbish when Karanka was sacked, he wasn't unlucky or anything, we were rubbish.
    • For teams like us the average points per game each season in the Championship is much higher than in the Premier League. Look at Burnley’s recent points in the Championship vs Premier League. Getting promoted from the Championship requires roughly double the number of points per season (slightly different per game as over 46 games as opposed to 38) compared to avoiding relegation from the Premier League. It’s on that basis that I’m saying form between the Championship and the Premier League is incomparable.
