Mowbray returns to Middlesbrough to hopefully pick up those three points he left lying around. :hyper:

Well done Jon. It's not your job but well done. You shouldn't have to cover for him like this.

To be fair, the standard of poll has increased though. The dashes in particular.

Can't play every match in the season.

Well, if I remember I’ll start a thread the day before a fixture. If ANYONE *coughThor/Franco wants to do it before then, then brilliant. My polls are pretty bleh. 😀

In other news, 16 year old Ash Phillips reportedly played a blinder for the U23’s the other day, and looks like he could be a big one for the future.

Boro dominated the match - Rovers very fortunate to draw. Boro had 11 corners. Gally had a good match, scored a screamer, both our centre halves caught flat footed for the Boro breakaway goal. I think this will be a long season.

It was a rowdy match for sure, at the end. Always happy to see Morsy get sent off.

Getting Nyambe and JRC back will be a big boost. Carter can plug in as right back, but shouldn't be relied upon consistently. Clarkson was rather anonymous, hope Rothwell doesn't have a terrible injury, and Travis seems to do better when he can just sit back and defend.

Pickering is a noticeable upgrade at left back, from all those years of having below average left backs

Somewhat confused when the radio said we were down to 9 men following a Middlesbrough sending off... :yeahright:

I like how committed the lads look so far this year. Really noticeable improvement
