Does Bettinelli save anything?

Nonsense, at the time the rumours surfaced we had the best defensive record in all 4 divisions....you were 'pleased' that he was being linked with other clubs...and would have driven him there yourself ?
Absolute rubbish !

Well, thanks for telling me what I thought at the time. No point in anyone saying anything really if that's your approach.

Wow if that's really what you thought at the time .... I'm surprised the club don't take you on as some kind of goalkeeping consultant

Just to remind you at that point
Middlesbrough had conceded just six goals all season - the best defensive record in the top four divisions.
Bettinelli had managed seven clean sheets already this season, the best record in the Championship.

You must have been the only person in the galaxy that wanted shot of him...but hey you just knew. Wow.

Why is it upsetting you so much? A very odd post. I certainly wasn't alone. But if you think we had the best defensive record because of Bettinelli then good luck to you.

I'm claiming simply that there wasn't, as you stated, a swell of worry about him going to a Premier League club in January and that I have never been convinced by him. Any other interpretation is through your lens and is, therefore, flawed.

He’s absolutely garbage and his hoofing of the ball is annoying at times but I think we need to lay that one down at the managers door. It’s a Warnock instruction. I doubt Bettinelli did that when he played under Jokanovic at Fulham.
I followed this up with a Fulham season ticket holder friend, out of interest. You're quite right under Jokanovic, he never (or rarely) hoofed it long, so that ones down to Lord Neil of Warnock. Also said about Kebano: clever player in the Championship, but he never sustained it for long. Hard worker, popular in the dressing room apparently. Still looks miles ahead of most of our midfielders.

Yep. Thought as much. It’s instructed from the manager that one. Love Kebano!

No, you were claiming that you would have 'driven him yourself to another club' at the time....a bit different be to 'not being convinced' ! I see very clearly through my lenses and my sense of smell is brilliant btw ahahahaa

You’re making a fool of yourself again Nobby. I know you struggle to understand most of the time but it’s all there for you so give it another go. You never know you might get there.

I think your superiority complex is coming to the fore again Adi

I'm sure you do. Probably because of the chip on your shoulder. I'm really not sure what it is you're actually struggling with. I think Bettinelli is rubbish. I thought he was rubbish in January. I don't think there was a swell of worry in the Boro fanbase when the PL rumours started. It's not more complicated than that.

You're claiming you wanted rid of Bettinelli and would drive him yourself to another club at the time when we had the best defensive record in the football league and he had kept the most clean sheets of any keeper in the Championship... That's not complicated it's absolute twaddle.

Jesus wept, this is so tiresome. Another reminder as to why I don't bother posting on here much. Some absolute whoppers who simply can't accept an alternative point of view, cherry pick semantics and go after people. I've got absolutely nothing to add Nobby. I've told you what I think and what I thought. Accept it or don't. I couldn't care less.

Well I guess we can agree to disagree Adi
Just leave it at that please (y)

CAnt blame Bettinelli tonight. He made a good save at his near post before they scored so he can make a save. Not one of pur best but I liked that he did the simple things, cleared his lines, was vocal in the early games. His confidence looks shot to me and while i dont agree he’s rubbish, hes no better than mediocre. Got to say most of Warnock’s signings have been a bit crap with the exception of Kebano
