  1. His nutmeg on the half-volley first time was better.
  2. Sorry, haven’t read all the posts. The watershed of giving certain players chances must surely have passed tonight? I thought it had passed a few games back. I do think he’s fearful of playing more youngsters, which is admirable, but I wish he’d just come out and say: The only players in the match day squad for the last 3 games are the ones I deem to have the necessary professionalism to be one of my players. We can then see whether he genuinely is dealing with a shower of shit or not. At the moment I think he’s got himself in a bit of hole, some of it due to the shor
  3. How many uncontested headers did Stewart, Jacobsen and Grimmer have tonight? How many diags did Stewart, Jacobsen and Grimmer hit tonight under absolutely no pressure at all? How many times did Stockdale clear under no pressure? Flip that to Vyner and Kalas versus Ikpeazu? They also needed Lansbury to help pin him because the Wycombe defenders could get their heads up and ping a ball towards him. Diedhiou ambles around and it has a serious negative impact on the team structure and is knock on pressure it puts us under. I’m amazed NP isn’t seeing it. Maybe he is but f

    He’s a decent enough Championship striker when he puts his mind to it. He has his weaknesses and strengths, but the lack of effort in large chunks of the last two seasons has been a disgrace. The fact that he’s been allowed to, coupled with not being sold whilst being offered a new contract shows how badly run we are as a club in some aspects. Never has an instruction from the top, blabbed through the CEO been so naive as “we will get our value on the pitch”. Both in terms of squad morale and financial impact. Absolute joke. I don’t blame Fam, although any scouts still watching h
  5. he is at times, but knows when to come narrow to create room for SS. Antoine just stays on the line....unless he's dribbling - frustrating....and easy to defend.
  6. 1st Half Summary: So diamonds not forever, not even for 45 minutes....NP going with his trusty (???) 4231. Lacking in quality, not helped by pitch, but it took one fine strike from Tyreeq Bakinson - perhaps coupled with good man-management from NP? Massengo tigerish again, if only he'd not slipped at the vital moment inside 5 mins. Bakinson good again, without the goal to add to marked improvement. Nagy got better in his role as the half wore on, but please, please make a tackle. Sessegnon doing well on his first start as a RB for City (other starts RWB or LB).
  7. Clash of heads or not, Crooks took a huge risk, and clattered the other guy. Reckless imho.
  8. Birmingham, Palmer was excellent....despite having to play behind Fam, who offered us his usual next to nothing. Palmer did Fam's running and pressing that game!!!
  9. Praised him in other games though. Not sure its a trust thing...more a system thing. Palmer in behind Fam, is not a great fit, then again what is a good fit with Fam? Ultimately the "system thing" might be a problem for Palmer longer term.
  10. I continue to be disappointed by his selection.
  11. Fletcher and Assombalonga won’t be featuring for Boro any more this season. Suggests fixed up, or not wanting to risk injury....or they’ve got bad attitude. Fletcher has had a niggle.
  12. Looks like OTIB / Twitter shit-stirring has had an effect.
  13. So you want me to shit-stir basically? straight on it!
  14. Good learning curve at Grimsby, but huge step up Lg2 > Champ. I do think we over-estimate the current ability of our youngsters. Totally get they have potential. Think it was JonD suggesting starting Janneh tonight. No problem from an experimental point of view or give him some experience, but that’s very different to thinking he’s ready to be a fully fledged squad member next season. He might be, but he might not be too. Nor JonD am I saying you’re wrong, just using your example. Back to Owura Edwards. Lively debut v Brentford as full debuts go, things to like too, but I th
  15. With contracts to play for? Or have they all been told their fate? Chris Rea’s “on the beach” is the obvious concern, My team for tonight: Bentley Vyner / Mariappa / Kalas / Sessegnon S.Pearson / Lansbury / Bakinson / Massengo / Palmer Wells Subs: O’Leary, Hunt, Towler, Rowe, Nagy, A.Scott, Semenyo, Janneh, Conway So, Vyner moves to RB, Mariappa in at CB. Sessegnon for Rowe. Palmer for Semenyo, Wells for Diedhiou.
  16. Agree, my first thought was that the bounce was off the bar....what I was unsure of was whether HL had got a touch on it. I doubted that he had because I don’t think the ball would’ve bounced off the bar in the way it did. But ref and assistant shouldn’t guess. Still interested in why ref gave a corner?
  17. I’m hoping it’s NP just bring non-committal when questioned because it’s not his place to say what is truly going on. The fact that MA is listed on ITFC’s website as CEO is bad enough.
