where's your regular Matchday Boro thread at?
I am disappointed :-(
You must be pleased with the current score Marco? How would you feel now about Roeder and Shearer taking permenant charge of the club? Well of course you would have to put a puppet in as Roeder and Shearer don't have thier badges...
to Argyle who are beating Brighton 1-0.
Shame that SOuthampton haven't. I saw earlier that both clubs have scored once in their last 5 games before today.
Re James Delve, maybe he's at the stadium for this one.
he really don't want to look anymore...
Pericard scored a hat trick for us...
Oh yes! Polish fella on loan from Spurs - Razsiak, is it?
Still 5 points behind us though :-P
All I caer about is that we stay in the Championship and have a crack at promotion next year.
My goodness, what has happened with Saints since the glory days with Wee Gordon Strachan?
You won't go down though as the three teams in the drop zone are all not good enough for the league.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure Saints are safe but it's flippin' depressing.*
*Not properly depressing because it's only a bunch of guys kicking a pig's bladder around but still a bit rubbish.
As happy as I am about Newcastle being 2-0 up, I really don't think Glenn Roeder's the answer. It's all well and good stringing a couple of wins together, but if things were ever to take a turn for the worse, his health really might not be able to stand the backlash... Having said that, I can't think of any established managers who'd rush to take this job...
Fuck me, Bolton must be asleep today.
roeder personally. However the true test will be our next few matches:
Man Utd (a)
Chelski (a)[FA Cup]
That is a pretty tough set of fixtures. If we can get 7 or 8 points out of the league games i'll be a very happy man.
It's difficult to say. He's certainly done to suggest he's not up to the task, but I can't help but feel we should be aiming bigger. Perhaps it's just because I still imagine Newcastle as being a top club, it's difficult to accept that we're also-rans at the minute...
we qualify for Europe then we should give him the job.
*that's a massive IF.
:-D I'll get onto Shepherdy right away.
i fucking hate him
Still, he can't be worse than Gordon Mckeag (I don't remember him, but have fond childhood memories of my Dad colourfully cursing his name).
hooray to boro who are winning 1-0 thanks to mark viduka
Which James would normally have gleefully informed us with his weekly footy thread.
to escape from the crimson room
Didn't think anyone was arsed about the football today, didn't seem many people online.
Besides, it's only Birmingham.
And no, unfortunately i ain't at the match, I am a jobless student. :(
But, we're 1-0 up, alls well!
Your commentary has been missed, though! Think you'll keep hold of Yakubu? He's been linked with Arsenal, hasn't he?
Yeah he'll stay. If he stays here, he'll be idolised by thousands, if he leaves, he's not neccesarily guaranteed a game.
(FULL TIME 1-0 :D)
But yeah, his agent has said he's loyal and doesn't want to leave, so why would he? The team has potential, ok we're not showing it, but theres certainly something there. Although we're definitely on form lately. Hmm...
Why would Yakubu leave Boro for Arsenal? If Arsenal do get into the Champions League (which is by no means gauranteed, ha ha!) then I think the answer is obvious. Every player would love to test themselves at the highest level, wouldn't they?
But, he seems to be the type of player who would leave a team after a season. He is still only young, he's got plenty of time to sign for a big club, I think he'll stay put. Besides it's only paper talk I reckon, he scored like this when he was at Portsmouth, why the sudden interest from big clubs?
Maybe the more interesting story is, do you think Jimmy Floyd will get a new contract?
FREE SCORING NEWCASTLE!
we are only 9 points from the play offs, it could be done seeing as we play Preston at home on Tuesday.
Should I get out of this dream world now?
thats what football is about man...
Stupid pipe dreams.
maybe not this season but you never know next season, we shall finally get into the top flight!
And how much would it piss of you Boro and Newcastle fans having to travel all the way to us?
North-Easterners are a famously lazy bunch. It's all the beer...
as it would piss off Carlisle fans.
*reminds self of the Torqueer fans going to Carlisle this season only for the match to be called off about 30 mins before it was supposed to start*
11 points clear of the drop zone for boro
if they entered the Intertoto cup.
i think they can do it
and cattermole dicked on birmingham today haha
Probs won't though.
Cattermole was fantastic, and yeah we DID enter the intertoto.
FA cup can get us there too
I had a dream about us beating Liverpool in the final.
Maybe it's meant to happen?
newcastle in the final?
theyre still there arent they?
or did i miss them going out
Playing Chelsea though.
But yeah i'd love to tonk them in the final.
we play you soon J
