Fry has struggled lately, and benefitted from the experienced Shotton playing in the middle of a three. Fletcher’s goal ratio is nothing to write home about, but also benefits from having a strike partner. Tavernier needs to find some consistency to command a regular start for 90 mins. Look at Traore, sensational as a sub but in the last few games when starting has been less than ordinary. Spence is good playing WB but as a FB he needs to work on his defensive qualities.

The GK has been a bonus just for his kicking qualities alone. The basics are there for this team, hopefully NW can be persuaded to build on it.

Good to see Leeds putting Stoke to the sword and denting their revival.  Not helping their GD having just conceded a fifth, good old Paddy B! 😎

I thought Paddy was sublime for their fourth when he left it and the resultant goal equalled Stoke's GD with ours but his fifth was the icing on the cake. It gives Boro an important one goal advantage over Stoke which could prove vital come the final day, in fact it could even be the most important goal Paddy ever scored for Boro!

Just to be clear I still haven't got over Pulis selling Bamford never mind dropping him for those Villa games.

"let it go, let it go......." sorry even after all this time I can't believe or accept that we sold him!!!!!!!!!!

who’s to say that some kind of “ Gentlemen’s Agreement” hasn’t been made with the out of contract players. 

I would guess that Warnock will be on some sort of survival bonus and it makes sense to offer those Players whose contracts are ending an incentive to make it worth their while. It makes total sense.

No doubt the squad would have been buzzing after yesterdays result on the trip back North but I would guess tonight's Stoke result will have boosted positivity even more. Rockliffe will be a very optimistic place tomorrow which I would guess hasn't been too often this season.

Good for Wigan too. They only need to be four points better than the bottom three from now on.

Is there a way of copying a previous post from a previous thread onto this new one? In view of the Wigan debate, I wanted to quote my piece on the situation which I wrote on your QPR preview, but I can only get it to copy onto the end of that thread. 

Also, how do I like someone else’s post? I haven’t figured that out yet! 

This new site is fantastic, by the way!

Three at the back and Fletcher up front. And two ball winners on the middle. Round pegs in round holes. Is it possible NW reads this blog?

i’m pleased Fletcher got his goal, I’m also pleased for Britt.

Given the parlour financial state of many clubs and the consequent potential glut of players on the market, I wonder if agents have told players the best way of finding a berth for next season is to love the one they’re with?

Thanks Clive, I can with administrator privileges move posts to threads with the new system - though what I've done your post on Wigan is move it to a thread I created to discuss the issues of clubs like the Lactics who face going into administration. The thread is called Are clubs facing the threat of administration as if I move it to this thread then we'll soon be moving onto the Bristol preview thread and then the post match thread etc.

That's why I like the discussion forum model as it allows topics to co-exist and some will have a longer shelf-life than others - so it's better to post something with a substantial point into a more appropriate thread.

OK, I understand many people are still readjusting to the idea that there is not just the latest thread to post in but I hope over time it will become more intuitive.

btw The like button is at the bottom of every post (the red thumbs up one) next to the 'Quote' button. Although, unfortunately the system only displays the names of last three people who have liked a post and previous likers just become a number.

@k-p-in-spain

The problem I find with that opinion is the following.

We as a club have never followed a logical approach to selection, by that I mean the following.

If you cannot get a result to save your life, (much of Woodgate's tenure) then you, if you are serious about your career as a manager must come to the conclusion that you are picking the wrong team, or, of course expect to be fired.

All regular fans knew that Tav. Was a youngster who would make it in the game. As we all watched in horror he was dropped, perched on the bench, brought on with three minutes to play (three times) this was during a very bad trot. Many clubs very interested in him. Go figure.

Wing, scored lots of goals as a playmaker in non league, came here for free, we were warned that he scored  spectacular goals, surprise, surprise, he promptly scored several, he was then told his job was to protect the back four, and still scored. Well in the sights of better clubs than us, so watch this space. 

Fletcher, posses the normal attributes of a striker, is mobile, tall, good in the air, can scores goals if put in by team mates.

   Britt

Posses none of the attributes of a striker, too small, too heavy, can't jump, cannot hold the ball up, does not score, dicey with penalties, and an ever present, and rarely subbed.   

 once you upset your players by foolish selections, they lose faith in your talents as a manager, then they lose the will to win.
