    That goal we just conceded was awful

    When do you ever see a keeper close down the attacker in a one-on-one situation with his legs closed? Keepers are taught to make themselves as big as possible; if the striker's good enough to put it through your legs then so be it. Steffen made some crucial saves for example the point blank...

    That goal we just conceded was awful

    Giles didn't have a clue where his man was. harsh on Steffen, not much he can do in that situation except make himself bigger and hope Hoever fluffs his lines

    Robbed again ?

    Watching WBA's first goal back, looks to be onside albeit marginally. Poor defending from us, gotta get touch tight there and snaffle out both the cross and finish. But hey ho, can't win them all, except from the next 12 🙏

    * The Original Unofficial "Official" Boro v West Brom. Match-Day Thread *

    Can't win them all pal, have some patience. The first half of this game ain't over yet nevermind the business end of the season.

    There's no point debating with someone without the logic or rationale to do so. You obviously don't know what you're talking about, and the reason you're glad she's not coming back is obvious 👍

    Okay, but that's my not my question. I'll repeat my question again for you. Whose problem should a British citizen be?

    So, to clarify, whose problem should a British citizen be?

    Shamima Begum

    I don't think that's the point. Whether she's ran over a hedgehog or planted a bomb on London bridge, she has the right to a fair trial. To make matters worse, a British citizen is being revoked of her nationality and supposedly now becomes Bangladeshi (despite probably having never been to...

    A19 mobile speed cameras

    Police usually allow a leeway of 10%+1 (at their discretion ofc) so 78 in a 70 is fine. And of course speedometers usually overestimate, so in all likelihood you were probably doing 74-75.

    Liam smith showing his true colours

    Eubank jr is a nothing fighter. Doesn't have the ability to be boxing with hands down and it was only a matter of time before he got clipped. Was a moment of madness from Smith to be spouting the rubbish above, but he's levels above Eubank otherwise.

    One that sticks out is the 1-0 win over Birmingham when he was motm. Another is the 2-1 win over Norwich just before the wc break, to name a few. Keepers are always treading a fine line. Their errors often lead to goals conceded, whereas if a striker misses a sitter or a defender misses a...

    As of right now, no, but he's still relatively young for a keeper and has a lot of upside. There's still the rest of this season for him to kick on, and should we reach the pl it would be justified to cough up the quoted figures.

    Knee jerk post. He's been a big part of the upturn under Carrick, and deserves to be backed. He made mistakes today including not closing down and helping out Fry leading to the penalty, but he's won us more points than he's lost, and will continue to do so.

    Kind of like how Henry was made to play as a winger by Wenger, to improve his ball control in tight spaces, movement with and without the ball, before eventually being moved up front. And the rest was history.

    Name a place you have visited that never lived up to the hype.

    Capri. Found Amalfi coast to be much more charming and beautiful, and reasonably priced. Capri seemed overcrowded even during covid, with obnoxious tourists.

    I’m officially worried now

    Certainly has, huge improvement on Wilder. It's amazing what a bit of confidence, structure and purpose can achieve. The return of Akpom and introduction of Hackney has been a huge boost.

    McGree and Crooks

    If we were to make a new thread every time a good footballer has a bad game or two, there'd be an awful lot of threads on this forum. May be you shouldn't have jumped the gun so quickly.

    McGree and Crooks

    Humble pie to be dished out once again. He was a good player in a bad system (under Wilder); his exploits with Australia alone suggest how good a footballer he is.

    Claims Akpom has gone for 2.5 million Euros

    A lot of humble pie to be dished out on this thread. Got some real footballing experts on our hands 🙊
