Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

One87One Yakou Meite will be in the South Stand for the Brum game.

“We’ve got Meite...”


It's called doing a Dylan...

Would much prefer he were on the pitch though.....

Re: The League of 4

Gomes has however brought on an extra defender to defend a lead on a number of occasions. Not necessarily wrong to do so, but it has invited us to sit back And not always done it to defend a lead specifically. When he brought on O'Shea for Meite against Rotherham (?) and we conceded it was a prepla...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Kelly oxf*rd Kelly on corners, they were woeful! Obita can take a mean corner. Swift's set pieces were mostly awful with the very occasional brilliance. Josh Barratt takes a mean free kick and would be an ideal corner taker. Would require the FA to allow Special Teams substitutions though as I can'...

Re: The League of 4

Eyeballing, it's been "obvious" that we tend to drop back in the last 20, hanging on to what we've got. One player actually said we did, not necessarily to orders but due to lack of confidence Yet a few times when we've fallen behind late, we've flipped, driven forward, and scored. i susp...

Re: Financial Fair Playl

There was a very “heated” meeting between all the Championship CEO’s yesterday at The City Ground, led by Steve Gibson of Middlesborough who wants three clubs investigated for manipulating their books to avoid breaching FFP rules. Those three clubs escape me now but dot include Reading, however con...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (a) sponsored by Jordan Holsgrove's dad

Few interesting decisions to make - if Eza is fully fit, then he could come in for McIntyre. Loader may well start instead of Baldock If Eza isn’t in, can assume he won’t sign for us He's played half an U23 game in 6 months, would be making a huge assumption about his future to judge it on whether ...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

I thought Joorabchian was only involved in the appointment of Gomes as his agency deals almost exclusively with Portugese and Brazilian based clubs and players and if the owners were determined to go Portugese, to be fair, he is an expert on that market. I reckon every loanee was on the radar to so...

Re: End of season contracts

I know someone else said it Nameless. I'm paying attention. You're the one who raised O'Shea as a better option than McShane while directly quoting me to have a pop yet again. You've been consistently jumping on anything I say and misrepresenting it for a day or two now. It's getting proper weird. ...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

If you want to know who is the power behind these loan transfers then look no further than Joorabchian and his agency. There is a reason why Mikaël Silvestre, who basically works for Joorabchian, is seen in the hotel after matches. The last time we brought in a whole load of loan players was when J...

Re: End of season contracts

He’s far too old for me personally, but if he gets a coaching role then so be bit with McShane. However, it is entirely up to Gomes now as Clement was the one who signed him How can O’Shea be too old to coach at 36 ? Meant too old as a player But there isn’t even a question of O’Shea continuing as ...

Re: End of season contracts

FFS Nameless you've got a real problem at the moment. I haven't said he isn't a good coach. I haven't said he can't be a good coach. I said I'm dubious about having him learn on the job with us when we could get someone with a track record. Being a successful pro is no indication of being a good co...

Re: Rumour - Reece Brown

Old Man Andrews Would be a huge error to take anyone from that low down the ladder and lets face it, doesn't get much lower than Forest Green does it? Anyone could go in and look decent on loan.


Indeed, we should stick to scouting round the Wessex league for our midfielders....

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

We were interested in Miazga years ago before he signed for Chelsea and we were close to signing Baker before he went to Boro last season, so we were already aware of them. Which doesn’t address the hypothetical question of whether they would have been brought in if Clement had been manager. We’ll ...

Re: End of season contracts

If we want someone with character to mentor young players we should hire them as a coach (on a much cheaper salary), not resign a player who is no longer up to it on the pitch. So I agree, apart from being very dubious about O'Shea as a coach. I'd rather someone who is a coach than an past it ex pr...

What a load of bed wetters. West Brom might rest all their first choice players now their playoff place is secure. We could be in serious trouble...... Read my edited post. They needed wins to get a play off place and still rested players. I think it’s 50/50 that Rotherham might actually do it. Str...

Not quite as much If we lost 4-0 and they won 0-2 the gap would be down to 7 goals going into the last game All this is HIGHLY unlikely but Rotherham have scored more goals so need to MATCH our GD Say an early sending off at BORO and we lose 5-0 while Rotherham win... Just to say I think we will ge...
