    ROVERS v Boro

    Not ready yet according to TM pre-match, although close. Will be playing on Monday with the U-23s
  2. Leeching, lip-licking, dog-denying, dodgy, back-stabbing wanker. I honestly find it hard to explain to people why he is the worst “football manager” criminal @#/? that ever walked the earth. Central, and pivotal to our downfall in every single way. (allegedly)

    Other Football League 2018/19

    I can’t see past Luton and Barnsley promoted and Sunderland to lose their bottle vs Portsmouth in the playoffs. Will be hilarious.

    Ben Brereton

    Has anyone else noticed that his feet are fucking massive? He has the gait and the look of Cro-Magnon Man and I think that will terrify defenders as much as it terrifies himself and his teammates. Its been a couple of games where he took up great positions for forcing a throw-in with a shot and Armstrong wouldn’t slip him in. Armstrong is probably a “creationist” and is scared of what Brereton’s very existence means. But I believe in this weird lad massively. Keep him in the team please. It’s coming.

    Champions League 2018-2019

    PSG even without Neymar are still a top, top side with one of the best managers around. If in ten years Mbappe isn’t talked about as in the same bracket as C. Ronaldo I’ll be stunned. He’s just gone 20. Di Maria is back to his actual self. Draxler, Alves, Silva, Buffon - it’s a better team than United all day and I wouldn’t judge OGS on it at all. I wouldn’t write PSG off to win the thing tbh even if they do play teams of farmers most weeks.

    Reading v Rovers

    I’ve talked to more than a few Boro fans online and in person that would swap him with Pulis in a heartbeat. I know what you are saying but I really feel we need a bit more patience and to give him a couple of years. We had one season where we nearly almost never really troubled the playoffs since the Venkys came in. That’s when we had quality players all over the park. We aren’t that parachute payment club anymore. It will take time and it would take time no matter who is in charge. I just really don’t think we can afford to gamble again right now. We are only just getting some normality, structure and trust back within the club and it’s not like we have a squad of mismanaged Barcelona players. Nor have we been too attractive a proposition for top players to join us since TM has been here. No one is untouchable of course and if and when it starts to go backwards and tits up big time then you’ll see me on your side. But for now I’m right behind Mogga, he’s a safe pair of hands and I can’t ever really see myself being vitriolic in my protests for him to be replaced. Unless he gets an invisible dog of course.

    Couldn’t agree more with this. But I feel the “grass might be greener” crowd are falling into the same trap right now with Mowbray. I’ll take midtable “consolidation” this year and hopefully knocking on the door next. But I won’t sweat it if we take our time - it’s a massively competitive league and we have no god given right to get out of it. I might not agree with every decision and I feel frustrations too - but I enjoy having someone in the dugout that I trust. If that’s naive or not I suppose I’ll only really find out in time.

    You think that Nelsen and Samba were better under Big Sam than Hughes? It’s debatable.

    Just wondering if you can pinpoint some goals we’ve conceded where organisational issues were mainly to blame rather than individual mistakes/loss of bottle. I didn’t think we conceded too many from set pieces for example but I might be getting that wrong. Genuine question.

    Kit Manufacturer

    Yeah took me aback a bit too that. If he lived like CR7 he wouldn't be here though.

    Would keep the bids for Dack at bay.

    We should keep Lenihan, but we need someone else like him (but more experienced) for backup - he's becoming a leader and is rough and tough and the mistakes will get ironed out... I wince when he comes for headers he shouldn't. Next to one of the two ruffians should be Mulgrew or an improvement on him. It's sad but Charlie is winding down and physically ailing. But we need someone to get a foot on the ball and be composed. Rodwell is not that man unless he goes on a crash course in how to actually be a CB for me. HOWEVER - I think in a 3 at the back, those 3 would be a decent mix, Lenihan in the centre. Some competition HAS to be brought in though, Williams disposed of and bring Wharton/Magloire through. More or less agree with everything else @Bigdoggsteel

    Reading v Rovers

    4-3-3 wasn’t it? Thought the pressing and control of midfield was good.

    Reading v Rovers

    Many ways to look at it. If we drop one of them and lose to Bristol City, the criticism remains. Out of the two games I would have targeted Reading as “easier” for Armstrong/Brereton to make the difference. TBH I’m starting to think that D&G are only particularly effective as a pair rather than individually anyway.
