RE: Boro Vs Cardiff

Thanks, Clive, for another excellent opener. I was one of many who thought Ipswich would do well but wouldn't be able to sustain a play-off finish. Go...

RE: BORO v Hull City

I'm going to take an alternate view here. One, how many goals have we actually conceded from passing it out from the back? That's not a rhetorical ...

Agreed. I wonder if he works out that he may end up as a bit of a Tav style player. He has a good engine and likes to get stuck in (albeit stupidly at...
