    You are the manager, what would you do?

    OK, so put yourself in Wilder's shoes. Given the current league position and with the squad of players at your disposal, what would you do to try and turn things around - especially given that the murmurs are getting louder? Formation? First choice XI? Areas for individual improvement? Self...

    Elvis biopic

    Just home from watching the Baz Lurhmann biopic of Elvis. Has anyone else seen it? I wasn't expecting to much but it is absolutely superb. Amazing performances throughout, great music and visually beautiful. What a sad and ultimately avoidably tragic story. Now what a headliner for Glastonbury...

    Freddie Woodman to Preston on a permanent

    Preston have signed Freddie Woodman from Newcastle on a permanent deal. So Iverson won't be returning there and does that change anything for Darlow? Feels like the goalkeeping merry go round is starting to fall into place, piece by piece.

    Has Lenihan signed yet?

    I should probably know the answer to this. It has been talked of as a done deal but I haven't seen anything definitive to say it is finalised.

    Yoann Barbet

    Released by QPR, left sided centre back - possibly already a deal done for him to return to France, but would be a good fit I think.

    Remaining fixtures

    Just looking at fixtures for the teams around us - makes me think that anyone trying to write us or anyone else off is braver than me. So much to play for and so much can change in this last few games. It is going to go down to the last game of the season I think. Boro Bournemouth (a)...

    Thoughts from last 2 games

    Obviously a hugely frustrating night at Sheffield Utd last night, where we were out-thought, out-battled and comprehensively out-played. Not a great time to be suffering the wobbles with so many big games coming our way. We need a reaction from the players and a pragmatic approach to our away...

    So what does all this mean for Payero?

    Must admit, these are exciting times to be a Boro fan- I haven't felt like this is years. Some really impressive looking recruitment with an eye not just on the present but for the future too. After years of sub standard recruitment and no apparent plan, the club's thinking is starting to look...

    The Sporar Phenomenon

    Firstly, I think Sporar is the best striker we have had in a good while and I really hope we can sign him permanently. The post is more trying to understand how the whole Sporar phenomenon thing developed? What is it about him that has caused the fans to get so excited about him? I can't...

    EFL Goals of the Season

    Nice to see Duncan making the Top 10. Also notable performances from Bettinelli letting a shot from outside the box through his grasp ( ;) ) and one time trialist Dylan Bahamboula.

    Is game being streamed tonight?

    I might be being thick here, but is the game being streamed anywhere tonight? I can't see anything on the MFC site apart from Audio.

    The Star at Harome

    Really sad to see this

    A lot of other players getting plaudits tonight and rightly so. I just wanted to highlight Uche's contribution. I thought he was absolutely brilliant today. Such a willing grafter and you never get less than a shift from him. I really want him to succeed for us.

    Duncan Watmore

    Fantastic to see him back in the starting line up. We look a different side with him in. Really excited to get him and Sporar working together. I had never realised that his father is chair of the ECB.

    Play off scenario

    Just so we are all clear on this, Reading will drop out of the play off places, we will finish level on points with Jonathan Woodgate's Bournemouth and miss out on the play offs on goal difference. Woody will then win the play offs. I have looked at all angles and this is the only possible...

    Nick Powell

    The bloke seems to walk a bit of a tightrope when it comes to his temperament, but I like the way he tries to play the game. Technically good and has better than average vision. I wouldn't mind him pulling strings in our midfield. If not him, someone like him. I also quite like the look of Hamer...

    Lewis Wing

    Firstly, this isn't an anti Lewis Wing post - I like the lad, I think he has something but has evidently stagnated a bit and a loan move makes sense. I don't profess to know the answer to how to get him moving again, but I thought his comments to the press on signing for Rotherham might...
