    Next season - formation?

    Any strong opinions? We have looked pretty poor in our various attempts to play 4-3-3 since Monk, we have no wingers to play 4-4-2, we have no No 10 to play someone behind a striker. We have no experienced solid fullbacks for a back four (and hardly any centre backs for a three for that...

    Tech savvy internet sorts..........

    When there are 'robots' on the forum what exactly are they doing when they are 'viewing' a thread? What is this information gathered for / used for? Cheers

    Any stats lovers know this.....

    ...how many points playing as a back three/five and how many as a back four? And how many points per game with Spence and without? I can't decide if it's just my imagination or rose tinted glasses looking back that we always seem more comfortable and better balanced as a back three/five. Are...

    Scouting, anyone know any local ones?

    Do 'boro still have lots of boots on the ground, or is it mainly electronic these days? Do the club mainly buy into a scouting service still? Interesting looking back at an article from 2015 it sounds like we are doing the work you'd expect, but not getting the players of the desired quality...

    Wigan (administrator) announces appeal

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53318930 Hopefully not a successful one, although if it is I can see Gibbo or maybe Hull's owners challenging it. Surely 'force majeure' is no defence if they bought the club on the 6th of June?

    Champo salary cap...

    Good idea? Easier to police than FFP? Championship clubs have been asked to provide indicative votes on radical plans that would transform the way they conduct transfer business and pay players from next season. Under a series of proposed reforms seen by Sportsmail, the EFL are seeking to...

    Derby

    Doesn't sit right, they are cheating FFP on a technicality so a 'coach' can be paid as a player who may well inspire them into the play-offs. After the stadium thing this is really starting to pi55 me off. Why aren't the FA addressing it. Have they announced anything about Derby & Shef Wed...

    Freed up wage budget.......

    Plucked from some random website, no idea if they are anywhere near correct. If they are fairly accurate that represents a huge chunk of our wage bill cleared off for next season, just under £7.7 million including Randolph and leaving Howson on the same terms. Do you think the 1 year extension...

    Premier League Wage Bills.........

    Inspired by the West Ham relegation post I thought I'd have a look at their wage bill, some insane numbers here, financial fair play indeed. Who are Southampton and Palace paying? Man U should be beating the Blades as you could have 25.3 Sheffield United Squads for one Man U one o_O. Looking...

    Android Box info...

    Anyone got any Android box advice for good sports services? I've had my Nvidia Shield for a few years now and dabbled with Kodi a year or two back before it went rubbish. I have sacked Sky off so I'm thinking of signing up with some other service on it. Any recommendations? A lot seem to...

    'Home' influence......

    Has anyone been watching other leagues? Has the lack of crowd, either to cheer on or maybe influence the referee had any impact? Has time keeping been the same towards the end? Are the extra subs just used tactically? Is 'the form book' out of the window now?

    Am I a cynic....Sky TV....

    I'm trying to leave, I only really watched F1 and footie. I have these options.. Call us - only for over 70's, the vulnerable, NHS workers etc. Message us, been on two hours it says awaiting agent then drops out, it is now saying that it is unavailable, By post, due to COVID-19 we may not...

    Just re-reading the Woodgate unveiling transcript.....

    Seems insane now, can't believe we've sunk so low after 30 odd games........ What will be your brand of football? Woodgate: Firstly, I want to pass the ball. Pass the ball, keep the ball, I want players to run with the ball, it's important that when you lose the ball you win it back as quickly...
