RE: Norwich v Boro

That’s absolutely mad after the start we’ve had isn’t it? Best league in the world?

RE: Norwich v Boro

Have a look back at the last 5 or 6 games. How good are Boro in the second half these days?

Missed the game (again) today due to a wedding in stunning Edinburgh. Just logged on to see the score - wow! Lift off!

Ugh I’d forgotten about that 4-4 game. Petition to recall only happy occasions from now on!

RE: Hull v Boro

@deleriad I had a similar thought around Akpom/Kane. I also think that, the more I see of him, Forss isn’t really a number 9. He’s more of a runner...

RE: Hull v Boro

With Boro in the shape we’re in and adapting to a new coaching setup, we’ve really no right to expect top performances. Take the three points and mo...

@malcolm I presume it’s both, Malcolm - a loan deal to the end of the season but Boro have an option to recall in Jan if they want.
