Be quite happy with a point tonight ( long drive back if we get hammered ).
Norwich are no mugs and Carrow Road as others have said is not exactly our " Shangri La ".

Hopefully we will start with the same side as last week or very close to it at least. as we are looking a bit more solid at the back.
In fact sat in the trent end last week v Brum I felt I was sat behind a much more solid defensive line with Pantillimon and the two centre backs. I have to say the passing beteween Smith amd Worral has had my heart in my mouth more than once.

Thats not to say we are the finished article at the back, in particular the left back position, but definately imo tighter.

Hope to see either Brereton or Vellios ( unlikely I know but I am still not yet convinced he has had a fair crack of the whip. thumbs down aplenty no doubt :) ).

Thought the introduction of Murphy on Saturday offered us nothing but he may yet not be fully fit.

Either way its . .

with you on this Creepy
good to see Pontilimon shouting to the back line rather than just fetching the ball and getting on with the game, we need a keeper who communicates with the defence.
I am a fan of Vellios and think he will do a better job than the other two at the moment, BB getting better but still miles away and Murphey not fit or getting any younget but proven.
enjoy the evening mate and bring us back 3 points

2.) 06 Mar 2018 21:45:56
Brereton too busy diving and looking for free kicks n penalties to play football. Missed the target on several occasions. Send him to Notts. With Murphy playing the way he did on Saturday we have no option but to play Velios. The best we have by a mile.

Good news if we get the right players in

4.) 31 Jan 2018 15:32:40
We could also do with getting Hobbs, Fox and Mills paid off.

5.) 31 Jan 2018 15:56:48
And Darikwa please

6.) 31 Jan 2018 16:33:07
Loan Darikwa out to the lower leagues.

No real complaints from me about the result to be honest. I think Cardiff aren't really getting the credit I think their performance warranted.
They chased , harried and outmuscled us for most of the game.
Certainly the time wasting element of the game is annoying but its nothing new and not exclusive to Cardiff.

Not the greatest refereeing performance particularly the penalty but a different ref may have awarded it BUT may also have red carded Traore not yellow for what I thought was a dreadful tackle.

Murphy is looking tired and we may well be a bit light for someone to take his place but all in all I am not over concerned at all.
Cardiff are not second this close to christmas by a fluke and despite the shennanigans look a good side.

I still maintain we are better placed as a club than for some years.

PS I would rest Mckay for a while and start with Caryol for a couple of games on the left. Whenever he comes on things seem to happen.

COYR and tractor boys next ( love that journey hmm . )


1.) 28 Nov 2017 09:08:45
Welcome back Skegsay. As far as I'm concerned Ipswich will be a tough game and our record away is not very good. Of course I'd love us to win, and if Bridcutt is back I think we stand a chance, but I'm not over-optimistic!



28 Jul 2017 13:26:01
Just come from the shop ( which was very busy ) . Told me that the tickets are being posted out today "" no fail " so should be on the mat tomorrow.

Hope so, starting to worry a bit!

2.) 28 Jul 2017 13:54:06
Went yesterday at 1pm and taking around an hour and a half from back of queue to desk so went back just after 5 and only a couple of people in the ticket office so happy days.
I asked about tickets and was told "some" we're being sent but some still at print so don't worry too much if not here tomorrow.

Middlesbrough have completed a club-record deal to sign Britt Assombalonga from Nottingham Forest.

Assombalonga said: “I can’t wait to get started and train with the boys. I’m glad it’s completed and I can focus on what’s ahead now.

“I can’t wait to meet the manager and get ready for next season. There’s a good feeling around the place. From the minute I walked in it felt right. ”



1.) 17 Jul 2017 21:41:39
Personally I think 14MIL is a joke, he clearly wanted out. oh well boro physios will be kept busy ;)

2.) 17 Jul 2017 21:41:53
well I'm glad that's over with. time to move on and get behind young Ben and cummings. let's hope they can fill the void.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 22:27:51
Gonna be tough to fill the goal gap britt leaves but if he wanted to go then the club is right to sell only players wanted are the ones who will fight till the death for the team.

4.) 17 Jul 2017 22:41:15
Assambolonga, Antonio, Burke. We have no ambition.

5.) 17 Jul 2017 22:49:35
Long eaton-in my opinion, we need stability before we can be ambitious. Fingers crossed that the money is spent wisely, hopefully we can make a few decent signings to improve the squad and continue to develop some of the younger players.

6.) 17 Jul 2017 23:02:59
His release clause was met and he wanted to go nothing to do with ambition.

7.) 18 Jul 2017 00:05:04
Bang on Redmash. Some people are just blinkered!

As soon as a club triggered his release clause then he was off and to be fair if I got offered over double I was earning now I would do the same.

Yes gutted to a Championship club but it now history onwards and upwards.

You Reds.

8.) 18 Jul 2017 07:23:32
Long eaton. - everton sell lukaka, soton an entire team over the last few years, but both seem to be doing ok, its the way of the football world, unless you are Real Madrid. What matters most is the owner and manager, we will find out soon enough.

9.) 18 Jul 2017 08:16:50
Agree with longeaton it just shows a total lack of ambition! As a new owner EM should be trying to lift the fans who are deflated after years of disappointment. How is selling our best player going to do that? If I was a season ticket holder i'd be feeling pretty ripped off now.

10.) 18 Jul 2017 08:17:02
Long Eaton Red

Assombalonga, Antonio, Burke sold because we have no money not because we have no ambition.

See Marco: won't spend his few hundred quid on a season ticket, unless the club spends millions.

Assombalonga just cost Middlesboro £15 million plus his salary of £3.1 million a year!

FFP is just not fair. Parachute payments make the unfairness even worse.

Footballers are no different to the rest of our sad and sorry society, greedy and selfish. I do not blame Assombalonga, who wouldn't move to double their salary? I don't blame the club, it has again done the business it needed to do to survive.

11.) 18 Jul 2017 08:25:24
No money? Our new owner owns Olympiacos! Hardly going to be short a few quid! Was hoping Olympiacos would sign Vellios for 15 million! that would have sorted us financially.

12.) 18 Jul 2017 09:31:14
Our last three owners have had multi million pound fortunes.

FFP will only allow a club and its owners to spend based on the money the club generates. Our club is currently losing millions of pounds on a consistent basis.
We now have a board of directors whose task it is to reverse these loses. Unfortunately, as I think Fawaz concluded, a board of directors costs a considerable amount of money too.

We need promotion or some other means of generating cash. As supporters all we can do is pay our entrance fees. I keep banging on about the Bayern Munich model, where they have cheap season tickets. They fill a much bigger ground than ours and make a fortune on merchandise.

13.) 18 Jul 2017 10:07:34
Obviously its a massive shame that he gone but both assombalonga and antonio wanted to go they both have premier league almost guaranteed within the next few seasons. though who agrees it would've been nice to see them three up top together. either way now he's gone i expect at least a couple more signings and for the dead wood stojikov ect. to be gotten rid of. as for positions i say possibly one more defender if we ship perquis and hobbs not sure which but i belive mance and worall are brilliant i want smith to start in goal so i hope we don't go for anther keeper uneccessary imo and perhaps one more midfielder vaughn is getting on despite his quality and cohen has to be careful due to his injuries and i still feel we need a good mid to replace lansbury.

In the main another solid performance really with the back four continuing tp look strong and settled.

United without doubt imo had the best of the first half Clarke had an easy as it gets opportunity to score and I felt us lucky to come off level BUT we did .

Second half was a different matter and we were the better side by some distance but, like United in the first half failed to capitalise on chances we had and on reflection a draw was about right.

The only down side ( apart from freezing my b@@@s off ) performance wise to me were Dowell and Murphy.

For whatever reason Dowell is really struggling at the moment and is a pale imitation of the player he looked when he first came but bear in mind the side ,again in my opinion, are playing much more solidly so perhaps he doesn't shine so much.
Either way I think we have better options bearing in mind he is likely to return to Everton at the end of the season.

Murphy doesn't look at the races to me and hasn't for a while be that for fitness reasons or something else. I wouldn't go as far as to say he doesn't look interested but he looks laboured and predictable most of the time.

Brererton had a typical " Brererton " game with lots of running and plenty of effort and endeavour but produced no real end result.

Clearly the striking situation remains an issue to be sorted down the line bujt meanwhile i think our best hope is for Brererton to nick a couple to boost his confidence.

However I am optimistic of things to come next season and as always . .



1.) 17 Mar 2018 18:37:54
Karanka said he’s playing brereton to give the lad some experience. That’s all well and good but I wish he’d get it in another league.!

2.) 17 Mar 2018 18:42:02
Billy I can see where you are perhaps coming from but the
trouble is we don't have any other options. It would appear Vellios isn't going to figure

3.) 17 Mar 2018 19:02:08
He can’t get championship experience playing in league 1 or 2 can he?call him all you want he is by far better than Murphy,at least brereton puts himself about a bit.think brereton won more headers than Murphy today as well.

4.) 17 Mar 2018 19:24:45
Murphys aerial ability is terrible for a bloke his size

5.) 17 Mar 2018 20:18:14
If its a case of getting Brereton up to standard then its 2 up top for the rest of the season with Murphy or Vellios to give him the space and freedom.

FF79 will have another nose bleed with AK not playing 4-2-3-1 but by the end of the season he may just agree we have the right manager on the job?

6.) 17 Mar 2018 20:38:02
Haha, don't hold your breath.😁

7.) 17 Mar 2018 23:33:44
Red credit for the defensive situation from Karanka.
Did tell you a while back that Eric would not play again and was right.
He's got the defensive situation under control mainly due to having a great defensive pairing in midfield of colback and Watson.
On paper and even if your being honest darikwa and Osborn wudnt be your first choice full backs?
But sometimes the best players don't make the best team.
I made a list of 23 players I think he will offload in the summer if he can.
And if he does and begs Burnley to buy Worrall for say 7 million collects a bit more for some of the others plus a bit of investment.
Sign two good strikers plus a ball playing midfielder who scores like jota then maybe were on to something
Tomlin for me is not a long term answer as there will be fitness issues where the likes of jota won't have those issues.
Away form is excellent the home form needs to improve.



11 Mar 2018 18:34:11
Difficult to say which set of supporters will be feeling more disgruntled tonight as from my perspective we had the opportunity to beat what I consider to bne as poor a Derby side as we have come up against for a while.

The Derfby fans may consider they had the best of the chances to nick it but a point and as importantly to them a performance like that will be cold comfort in their play off/[romotion aspirations.

The bottom line to me is that there appeared to be no real attacking threat from either side and no real quality either.

I thought the back four ( Fox was my man of match ) looked solid again and the midfield more than held its own.

The down side I suppose is that now the defense and midfield are performing more consistently the spotlight will inevitably fall on our attacking threat which at the moment is frankly alittle light.

At 18 yrs of age I don't feel Brererton is able or capable of leading the line and quite frankly nor should he be expected to do so.

Vellios continues to be , as Churchill said a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma (one for the teenagers again) the ins and outs of which we may never know but there would APPEAR to be an agenda somewhere.

Debate continues over Murphys age/fitness etc but again I do not see him for all his ability to hold the ball up as a potent attacking threat and along with Brererton wins very little in the air.

Clearly this is a situation which will HAVE to be addressed in the summer with the addition of hopefully two decent strikers at the club which I assume in the light of recent financial announcements will be possible.

Until then I think things will carry on in much the same way for the remainder of the season which if you cast your mind back 12 months is a much nicer place to be.

AS always .

Brilliant post creepy, very poor Derby side - derby fans that I know aren’t convinced either once you get under the bravado

2.) 11 Mar 2018 19:10:14
Put Messi or Ronaldo up there alone they would look bad.
Defensively it's good, attacking wise it's non existent

3.) 11 Mar 2018 19:24:26
ff 79 I would be prepared I suppose if pushed possibly perhaps maybe to give either of them a pop. :)

4.) 11 Mar 2018 19:29:28
Well creepy unless we find one in the summer expect more of the same.a few clean sheets but no goals?

5.) 11 Mar 2018 19:40:37
As I said FF it is a situation that has got to be sorted come the summer as a priority and it will be no easy task I am sure

6.) 11 Mar 2018 20:30:25
Our attacking threat was nullified because Direby targeted Tomlin who set a Championship record this season for the most fouled player in a game. With a more experienced centre forward we would have carved out some better chances.
For the first time in many seasons we now have a team that will not be bullied out of any game so I think the progress under AK is excellent and long may the unbeaten run continue!

7.) 11 Mar 2018 21:59:57
Rubbish red try watching it again.
If tomlin was fit he's have hurt them proper instead of looking for fouls which some weren't.
Ref was on his side if anything.
It's a defensive side sent out to do a defensive job and try and get lucky and Nick one.
Your prediction of 4/1 was and won't happen playing like this unless it's QPR every week.
Shocking game to watch especially after watching villa wolves.

8.) 12 Mar 2018 00:18:00
Villa Wolves 😭 2 teams with slightly different budgets to ours. JT earns more in a week than our whole back 4! Unrealistic expectations of our club,new owners ,new manager and new team given what's gone on over the last 5 years.Grow some patience 79.

9.) 12 Mar 2018 06:33:23
Is ff a derby fan or Rowetts brother.jesus Christ,next you will tell us Lawrence didn’t dive and that huddlestone shouldn’t of been sent off.tomlin was very professional yesterday.he realises he was going to be targeted and drew the fouls.if he was fit?he ran round all over the place for 80mins,after being kicked all game what more do you want from him?
I thought you had got over warbo being sacked now your starting on karankas players!

10.) 12 Mar 2018 07:35:48
Sutton if you like watching that sort of football then good for you.
I don't and never have.
Like I said two boring managers with boring tactics.
Downt Up ten men,bring on another striker and finish them off.
But he has no plan B your mate vellios must think what do I have to do to get on the pitch?
Not a single attempt on goal,the sheep could have played without a keeper he didn't have anything to do and were the home side?
Awful game to watch,but as long as your happy.watching rubbish tactical performances the everything's ok?



07 Mar 2018 11:54:13
Well, a footballing spectacular feast last night wasnt but again a well earned point and I THINK we may have had the better of the chances but all in all a point was fair.

It did seem at times like both sides were actually playing for a point but 5 unbeaten will do for me.

Pantillimon, Figuerido and Fox continued to impress me and Darikwa continuiung on an upward curve and though he was skinned a couple of times at least he was there to be skinned and not meandering about up the pitch as he used to do.

Osbourne I thought did a very resonable job as a stand in left back and the midfield in general continue to provide defensive capability to the side.

I thought Vellios in his few minutes on the pitch provided us with something different and chased the ball well.

Dowell had far from his best gane for us but my biggest gripe is with Brererton which I alluded to last night
Its my opinion , which by the thumbs down from last night isn't shared by everyone, that he has developed a part of his game to taking any and all opportunity to throw himself to the floor looking for free kicks and last nght,again imo,he twice made himself look very silly and could justifiably have been booked.

He followed all this up with a crazy crazy tackle for which he was booked and seems to be getting wound up and frustrated on a regular basis.

I don't think anyone could reasonably argue he is not the player we all saw at the back end of last season but I think there are reasons well documented and discussed on here for that.

He is only 18 yrs of age and I think he may benefit from being taken out of the firing line for a while ,and most certainly for Sunday, and start with either Vellios or again for Sunday most likely Murphy.

At least there will be no more talk of relegation now and the summer will no doubt see more addtiions and departures and the situation re the loan players will become clear.

Until then I for one will continue to enjoy the ride and upturn in fortunes even through the almost inevitable low points which will without doubt come.

As always . . . .

Trouble is refs clock this sort of carry on and it can cost you

4.) 07 Mar 2018 15:46:25
It's hard to say he shouldn't start because he can be a big threat however AK absolutely needs to pull him to one side and get him to put all of his effort in to scoring goals and playing for the team. He's picking up some bad habits.

5.) 07 Mar 2018 19:06:19
Aps 1952. if he died his hair he'd look like "Harpo!!!

6.) 07 Mar 2018 21:25:13
I do agree with most of what you say Creepy but Murphy was awful last weekend and has been the last 5/6 times I have seen him. I would prefer us to play Brereton at 18 and give him playing time than playing Murphy who is surely close to retiring. Maybe it is time to give Vellios a run of games!?

7.) 08 Mar 2018 10:16:51
For me it would be start with Vellios no question. I just feel for whatever reason he is not the managers go to man.

I fear Murphy may become a bit of a millstone as he is with us until he is 37



06 Mar 2018 20:59:56
Again. Grrrrrr




06 Mar 2018 20:57:17
Had enough of Brererton throwing himself around. Cost us a pen at Fulham and hope same doesn't happen tonight.
Needs to cut it out of his game


1.) 06 Mar 2018 21:50:48
Creepy your right he has done this all season lucky he wasnt sent off me thinks on the bench for sunday 😠

I am of an age where the maxim " never go back " is often used rightly or wrongly
Things are very rarely the same and usually have a tendency not to work out.
