Boro v Charlton (A) 1-0 (McNair)

Recommended Posts

Fantastic result and great day out! A lot of positives to take from this game. Could have easily been 3 up by half time. I'm hoping Woodgate keeps the squad the same for this Saturday.

I would be happy if starting 11 is same but as far as bench is concerned i would rather Roberts was on there at the expense of Nmecha. The same 11 with a bench of 

Pears, Fry, Saville, Ravel, Roberts, Fletch and Britt.

That clean sheet will do wonders for Stojanović's confidence. Looking forward to see how he fares against a team who'll actually challenge him.

You're completely right there. I forgot that Roberts should be back. I'd defo have him on the bench and give him some minutes this weekend.

I think we (normally) get distracted by a players stats and ignore the set up of the team they are playing in. 

Rather than signing strikers to suit our system or building a team around a striker we sign whom ever we like with either a decent record or a *** record but they always score past us.

agreed, you can't just look at simple stats. IF you look at Jordan Rhodes, he had very good champo stats, but there are reasons that Prem sides sent scouts but never ever made an offer. That is because his goals tally was based around a setup that involed him hanging around the box, scoring 45-55% of the team goals, but doing little else. Despite scoring so many goals, Blackburn were a middling to lower side.

When he did get someone to share the load (Gestede) his own output dropped and the team as a whole were only 10th top scorers. The idea of footy is not to get the top goalscorer in the charts, it guarantees nothing.

Just watched the highlights on the boro website. Thought they were very Charlton friendly. Were they put together by a Charlton fan? Looking at those highlights you’d think Charlton were the better team. Thought we created a lot more than those highlights show.

Ravel or Nmecha to be dropped. I’d rather it was Ravel.

I think they used the word alright and *** were used to describe Zenden was because they rhymed, not because they were actually descriptive.

"He used to be alright but not spectacular on the wing, but now hes much better and putting in some of the best midfield performances in the premiership" just doesnt work as well in the parameters of the song

Next up you'll be telling me Juninho didn't have a magic hat.

    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.  
    • As far as I can tell it's the only argument that they can even try to make, and even that's weak AF.
