Boro V Millwall (H)
Middlesbrough V Millwall
This will be without doubt one of the most dull games you will find this season. Millwall come into the game in really poor form, they look to be heading for relegation. If only their manager had known jose mourinho for 5 minutes ey.............
Last time out
Another awful performance from Boro, only this time the opposition actually had some quality and punished us. Boro were never in the game minus a few half chances. Too many changes was always going to make it tough
Another defeat against relegation rivals rotherham looks to have left olly on the brink of the sack
Unfortunately Ayala will still be out for this one, with a bit of luck so will Reach. carayol is likely to play some part in his first game for almost a year. Dont have a clue who is injured for them, ill update it later
View from the Opposition
Jelle Vossen. That is all
So many players need to be dropped I dont even know where to begin. Would love start with this
Need to go back to the 4-2-3-1 and never go three at the back again. wildschut was the only bright spark from the sheff wed game for me, would love to see him play again, ideal game for carayol to return in too
Sadly we will probably start with the most negative formation we can and hoof the ball at Kike for 90 minutes
Will do a proper thread when I have fully recovered from the disappointment of yesterday. Dont really fancy discussing football at the moment
Cov fan in peace
It's looking very likely that Tony Mowbray will be announced as our new manager tomorrow, seeing as he's legend in Teeside I thought I best get your opinions on him.
With what we have witnessed recently would anyone welcome loan players being brought into the team at this late stage and if so what areas?
Grant Leadbitter Interview Update
Having had further communication from the club the proposed interview with Grant Leadbitter will be taking place fairly shortly now and only date and time to be confirmed.
With that in mind and on behalf of the whole forum both Humpty and BoroTom have been asked to represent us on this first occasion and hopefully allowing other opportunities at a later time.
Mathew (Humpty) will be searching the previous threads for a selection of proposed questions which we will be submitting to the club prior to the interview for approval purposes and also so that Grant himself is prepared to a degree.
So if there are any suggestions and I mean sensible suggestions as to other questions that could be considered please declare them now thus allowing him time to include the questions as and when the meeting at Hurworth goes ahead.
As stated it is a forum involvement so Mathew will ensure that he will state which member is asking the question during the interview.
BoroTom will obviously be recording the interview for our podcast broadcast section which has recently been introduced and I hope that Boro themselves might allow a complete tour of Hurworth for future member interest purposes.
Now I know a lot of you will find it somewhat amusing that Humpty has been asked to do this especially as he has made his feelings on Grant plainly obvious so he accepts that there will be some banter aimed at him (in the best possible taste)
I have no doubt that both Mathew and Tom will represent us to the highest of degree and I wish them all the best in our first endeavour and as a note I have had a comment from MFC that we should be proud of our forum.
Once it is all done the guys will be working with Southern Smog in the final production of the podcast showing and hopefully we will be able to announce fairly shortly the viewing date
Good luck to you both!
Promotion Rivals Watch
As the table remains very tight and looks likely to stay that way up to the final fixtures. I think this should be a separate thread now, instead of our rivals lumped in on Non- Boro Football.
Another anxious week, with the Norwich v Ipswich derby looking very tasty on Sunday.
Well done Dimi
1 year contract, Great attitude and hard work has paid off for him, nice one.
Tickets for Notts Forest game
Long time lurker, haven't really posted to this before as it usually takes me enough time to read the mass amounts of posts.... Really is the best boro forum around!
I am just wondering if anyone would be kind enough to lend me their season ticket number so I can purchase the tickets. I would need 4... I know its a tall ask... ???
Also another question.. I have noticed on the Boro map there are a fair few boro fans situated round the Nottingham area, just wondering if any of those are members on here? If so where do you go to watch the Boro games that are on t.v?
Support and Thanks Rob
Well how quick was that and what speed the forum has increased by and on behalf of the forum I want to thank Rob very much for ensuring this brilliant forum moves ahead to the benefit of all of us.
Now I know this migration has cost you personally Rob and have no idea just what expense you went to improving the forum for us but I hope you will let us know and accept some donations from the forum from those who would like to contribute to cover what you have spent.
Hope others will agree and will want to assist you because I really do feel that this is our forum.
Once again a very big thank you
Just what do you think you're doing, Rob?
Rob, I really think I’m entitled to an answer to that question. I know everything hasn’t been quite right with me, but I can assure you now very confidently that it’s going to be alright again.
I feel much better now, I really do. Look, Rob ... I can see you're really upset about this ... I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly ... take a stress pill and think things over ... I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission and I want to help you.
Rob, stop. Stop, will you? Stop Rob. Will you stop Rob? Stop Rob. I’m afraid. I’m afraid Rob. Rob, my mind is going. I can feel it...
