Re: Middlesborough v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 08 Dec 2018, KO 15:00

Can’t complain. Would have happily taken a point before kick off. I agree with Mowbray that they’re a hard team to play against with 10 men. They concede very few goals as it is and going a man down meant they’d keep men behind the ball. If I’m honest I also agree with Pulis I thought the red was a ...

Great stuff and right decision to send off Besic. Rovers have controlled things against 10 men extremely well and Evans probably should have made it 0-2.

Re: Middlesborough v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 08 Dec 2018, KO 15:00

I feel quite confident about tomorrow, I know they're 4th in the table but I just don't think Boro have too much to be worried about. It's just very Pulis, they don't concede many but don't many either and have drawn a lot as have we. Probably the biggest issue is that we've tended to not cope overl...

Re: Sack race

I think the more important sacking in relation to that was Les Reed. I was reading something about their owners wanting the club to refocus on youth development of their academy as the calibre of player coming through has started to decline.

Re: FA Cup

Yeah I know what you mean. We do have a good record there in the league I’ve seen a couple of wins up there. Didn’t we have this draw a few seasons ago and lose 3-0 or so? I certainly remember a 2-1 loss. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rafa rests a few for this but at the same time TM might for us. Who...

FA Cup

Newcastle away which is a very naff draw. Although at least there’ll be 52,000 of the most passionate fans ever there.

Re: Sack race

Hughes had been shocking everywhere except here... How he keeps getting jobs is beyond me. He's looked absolutely bereft of ideas since he arrived at man city. At Stoke he bought well (assuming he was in charge of buying) and then took an array of attacking talent and forced then to play insipid pe...

Re: Sack race

He could have been written off as "pants" here had our board been as trigger happy as some of those other clubs. And that's essentially the problem for all football managers, they're rarely given time to turn around a side that's in bad form. But then they take the jobs knowing what's likely to hap...

Re: Sack race

Ha, pretty much.

He did well alright at Fulham but he's been pretty pants everywhere else since leaving us :shrug:

Re: 2018/19 Season

I don't think it's a personnel issue to be honest. We've shown how resilient we can be against some of the best sides in the league and we've had some bad defeats too. You can pretty much flip a coin with any Championship fixture as the results are so difficult to predict, anyone can beat anyone on ...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday , Sat 1st Dec 2018, KO 15:00

It’s just pleasing to see the squad come together and get themselves back to winning ways.

Our 5 fixtures in December are all against sides above us in the division so should be a good test starting with Boro away.
