3 points is all that matters and I will continue to take 1-0 victories. Last night we started a tad scrappy and seemed to be forcing the issue by giving the ball away constantly (Hernandez was a major culprit) . We then settled down and for a 10-15 spell put Middlesborough on the backfoot and eventually forced the goal. Defensively we held firm (apart from the shot that hit the bar) although I think White in the DM role is a waste. Chances again wasted, in particular Dallas and Bamford who is playing with absolutely no confidence but no pressure from the bench. Augustine out injured with a hamstring strain therefore we must persist with Bamford for the run in. A poor piece of business in the window by the club as I suspect we will not see Augustine start this season. Positives, a win, defensive solidity, good performances from Klich, White and the back four. Negatives, wasting limited chances and crossing from the wings still a bit hit and miss.

My thoughts on Radz and Orta on their terrible incompetent recruitment are well documented. but it's now looking like they have surpassed themselves in incompetency this past transfer window.

27 Feb 2020 09:32:14
Was wondering where big Kev was. Rads and Orta can’t predict injuries injuries tho!
Personally wanted to see Jordan Stevens get 20 mins for Costa, and thought Harrison and Klich were fantastic.

27 Feb 2020 09:46:49
Bright you are correct but they can be held accountable for bringing in an unfit striker who is probably busting a gut to get fit therefore increasing the risk of injury.

27 Feb 2020 10:04:48
Brighty . Radz and Orta have spent £2 million in loan fees and wages on JKA knowing that he is, not ready to play due to his lack of fitness. and has hardly played all season . so it is not really surprising to see it seems JKA getting injured trying to reach Bielsas level of fitness

. Poveda isn't a first team signing.

so the first team squad has in reality not really been strengthened again for the crucial run in

Anyway. onwards. 11 crucial games . come on Bielsa and the players.

27 Feb 2020 10:14:44
We’re doing ok without them at the moment.

27 Feb 2020 10:30:35
That was a hard watch last night as poor as boro really are we, were never comfortable against them there would really have to be so much work done to that 1st team if we do go up . The question is 2fold, if bielsa was to stay, Would he actually drop any of his core favourites on the team, (knowing his reluctance to change) .
Also would Our great leader ever pay the rate involved to get prem quality into the team?

27 Feb 2020 10:37:39
True Taddy but why make it harder on ourselves and what do we do if we do need the extra players but they are not available/ match fit?

27 Feb 2020 11:10:56
We also managed to grind out a result without KP, and hopefully he'll be fit enough for Saturday. KP's absence last night also means that even if he picks up a yellow in each of the next two games, he won't reach the 10-card mark ahead of the 37 match cut-off so, barring a red card or injury, he should be available for the following games at Baadiff and home to Fulham.

27 Feb 2020 11:15:50
Fair points Notts and Baz, so won’t argue re Kev.
I think re Poveda, that Bielsa said he was capable and fit enough, but would have to edge his way past Jordan Stevens, who has earned his place in the squad, and on the bench, which is a positive in some ways.

27 Feb 2020 11:32:57
sorry but i don't think we held firm last night i think we was shocking but luckly borough was worse and couldn't make us pay

three times they cut us open on the counter attack but then there final ball let them down with the goal wide open, not to mention the back pass from hell and them hitting the bar. then beradi could of been sent off but ref didn't even give a foul?

white at defensive mid is a waste of a player he just don't get involved and beradi is a joke of a player. last night we got away with it but against better teams we would of been beaten. trouble is we have a lot harder games than borough coming up and last night only papered over our defensive cracks.

belisa is on 6 million a year better paid than southgate and if his answer is beradi at centre back and white as DM he is not worth the money. Last night was a let off not a great defensive display.

27 Feb 2020 11:42:11
Chris was wondering where you had been during the past 3 games / victories 😊.

27 Feb 2020 12:14:13
BW, I only remember Casilla making one save and yes they hit the bar and they had two shots wide, but a clean sheet is holding firm. On another day we may had conceded one or two but we didn't, count our blesses. I assume that your comment re: Bielsa's salary in comparison to Southgate's is poetic licence, as your figures are way out. Agree with White at DM, waste of a good player.

27 Feb 2020 13:14:19
Been here all the while vidooks but not commenting ( and not because we won 3 neither ) Last night was a awful game of football to watch though . Lack of a bench currently is showing, No kalvo we are a different team.

27 Feb 2020 13:26:37
I also agree re white at DM, but that is no reflection on Berra, by any means.

27 Feb 2020 13:35:14
Good to know Chris .

27 Feb 2020 14:08:14
I the absence of KP Bermo, how would you set the team up?

27 Feb 2020 15:52:44
without kp it should be

alying cooper whit douglas

alying cooper white dallas
shack/ boguatz

or if yu must play the walking mistake then (not my prefered)

beradi alying cooper dallas

my point is beradi at cb costs us he is not good enough when the going gets tough. why ain't belisa learnt this? if beradi is the best option in belisa crazy mind then he had to get better in. a CB was out there better than him. i said williams and people said he ain't ball playing. neither is beradi only difference is one is a CB the other aint

belisa is paid too much to make the mistak of playing beradi cb.

27 Feb 2020 16:22:51
Bielsa salary article

might not be exact but lots of people saying he is on a big wage.

the biggest miss chance brough didn't even hit the target they cut us open, beradi was in no mans land but the final pass was way behind the striker giving coops a chance to cover but it should of been a goal

as for how i would set up without KP. either

Beradi alying cooper dallas (ayling less of a risk in the middle than beradi)

alying white cooper douglas

alying white cooper dallas
shacks/ bozagus

my point is beradi is no CB he cost us last year and is not upto the task. why don't Belisa learn would anyone want beradi centr back in playoffs (i said it would cost us last year and it did why make me right again)

if belisa answer was Beradi Cb then he had to get a cb in who is better. some one, any one just not beradi at CB it should never happen as better teams than middsleborough will make us pay.
