Not a bad performance

It could of been worse, midfield were a bit slow to the ball but I thought we handled the game well until they scored their first, I believe we were going to bring Graham on just before they scored and that quite well would of changed the game for us in our favour.

Onwards and upwards to next week.

hodgiemfc Posted on 5/3 14:55
re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy generally I'm as much as an optimist as you but how you can say that wasn't a bad performance is beyond me. I'll accept there may well be reasons why we were as poor as we were but no one can say that we weren't rubbish today.

re: Not a bad performance

Yer know Briggs, I've always admired your optimistic approach to the whole Boro support thing. But, there comes a time in every man's life when reality needs to sink in and be recognised. This is your time Briggsy! The reality is that the performance by our football team today, was simply dreadful ! That is without a shadow of a doubt, A FACT !!!

Buddy Posted on 5/3 14:58
re: Not a bad performance

If we play like we did against Villa at home last year we'll get hammered as well. Is there a rule that says that if you've played below par (which really is as far as it goes) in one game then that will be the case in the next one?

I'd hate to see a bad performance then. I think even SMAC will admit we were rubbish today, well I hope he does. I'm going to smash my radio if I hear the words "tremendous" or " great characther" once

Buddy and Briggsy. Sounds nice.

br14 Posted on 5/3 15:00
re: Not a bad performance

I'm not usually negative, but I am a realist, and the only way we will get to be top 6 this season is if every team around us plays as badly as we do.

Know what. Thats ok. We've had a great run in Europe and a not bad season. Considering the injuries we've had it could have been a lot worse.

But get real, if we'd have played Chelsea today we'd have lost 6-0.

unbelievable comment, that was absolute rubbish !

Nisko Posted on 5/3 15:01
re: Not a bad performance

I thought it was a poor performance up until the goal and an atrocious one after it.

First half was rather mediocre from both sides, and there were a few players just couldn't seem to be arsed today (Downing and Parlour mainly but also perhaps Nemeth).

karembeu_ca Posted on 5/3 15:06
re: Not a bad performance

sorry Briggsy, I am a big fan of optimism and silver linings, but that was a great opportunity simply thrown away. Villa did NOTHING for the first 60 minutes and not one of out players stepped up and took advantage.

Zenden, Downing, and Parlour were nothing short of dire, and Nash looked like he has not played much (not his fault really). The commentary summed it up in the first half. "Boro look comfortable". We were doing nothing and still controlling the tempo and looked like an easy draw - WTF??? We should be pushing for wins when we go up against a team playing defensively at home and creating NOTHING.

That is the most disappointed I have been in the Boro in a long time.

GoGoDelfin Posted on 5/3 15:09
re: Not a bad performance

The thing is Buddy, we desperately needed to win this game to achieve something from this season. We just didn't even try and that's unforgivable.

The performance was appalling. Villa were awful too and yet they still beat us 2-0. No fan of football with even an ounce of common sense would say that was "not a bad performance."

If people only ever spin something one way, positively or negatively, then their opinions automatically become dogsht, even on the occasions when they're right. Tell the truth, don't spin. It's not a White House press conference.

There have been plenty of games where we played well and still got nothing out of it. Today we were garbage and got what we deserved - nothing. Tell it how it is.

Reading1967 Posted on 5/3 15:09

Biggsy and Buddy , That performance was coming we have been playing poorly since the Lazio game how you can take any positives from that is beyond me

AtomicLoonybin Posted on 5/3 15:09
re: Not a bad performance

I've said exactly the same as the Bear for a couple of months. Lazio was the last good performance - we've been lucky in that our poor performances have managed to get results, plus the poorness of the teams around us to stay where we are. We look exactly like we are at the moment though - a mediocre prem team. I don't know what the solution is - unless Boateng makes a huge difference from the first whistle when he's back.

boroangel Posted on 5/3 15:11
re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy to replace Brownlee...

MrAngryCurrentlyInAberdeen Posted on 5/3 15:14
re: Not a bad performance

Lazio WAS the last good performance, but since then all the passing has gone to hell, positive play has been replaced by negative.

Doesn't matter the personnel, the basic skills should not be affected, but they're showing themselves up, and the coaching staff don't seem to be doing anything about it.

Stop playing people out of position, and don't be afraid to bring the young lads in. None of them have let the team down when given the chance.

boro_Maverick Posted on 5/3 15:16
re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy get your head out of McClarens aröe, because I bet Gibson is not saying that wasn't bad.

I hope Gibbo calls smac in and bollox him, and then I hope smac bollox the players just as much, then I hope the players bollox the next team.

re: Not a bad performance

so, you're happy then Briggsy?

Revol_Tees Posted on 5/3 15:30
re: Not a bad performance

You're joking. Parlour was the worst player on the pitch and, for my money, might as well have had a Villa shirt on. He gave it away constantly and his "tackling" cost us the second goal - a ridiculous, needless challenge, back to goal, outside the box. Looks like he's heading for an average rating of "2" on Specky's official ratings thread. Which is possibly a bit generous.

Agree with you about Jimmy though, I felt sorry for him today.

johndd49 Posted on 5/3 15:30
re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy--you're having a larf. We were poor, and if we play like that against Sporting on Thursday the second leg will be academic. And that's 3 times in 4 games we've conceded 2 goals--very worrying.

BoroMutt Posted on 5/3 15:31
re: Not a bad performance

...a terrible one.

karembeu_ca Posted on 5/3 15:31
re: Not a bad performance

briggsy, Parlour was the worst performing player on the pitch, only Barry came close on either team. He completed very few passes and did little else. The only credit i'll give him was at least he was involved enough to look bad - Zenden was totally invisible.

Reading1967 Posted on 5/3 15:32
re: Not a bad performance

"Jimmy`s ability to hold up the ball" now i know you are talking out of your harris
if that comment was not the most pathetic attempt to get a 100 post since your i know who we are signing by 12 o clock effort
you really are a sad case
even rose coloured Brownlee was just saying the problem is Jimmy cant hold up the ball

we_have_overcome Posted on 5/3 15:35
re: Not a bad performance

You are right, it wasn't a bad performance, it was a despicable performance. It was an embarrassment, the Boro fans who made the trip to Villa Park must have been cringing in their seats.

It mystifies me how £30,000+ a week players can't pass a ball 5 yards. And it's not just the odd stray pass, it's consistent throughout the team (with Parlour the main culprit), what they do in training god only knows.

It looked as though they were in a pre season friendly, had not played together before, and didn't want to get stuck in in case they got injured before the start of the season.

The negative line up doesn't help matters either.

Buddy Posted on 5/3 15:37
re: Not a bad performance

Sorry, I know I'm not really here, but as regards GoGoDelfin:

"we desperately needed to win this game to achieve something from this season" No we didn't. Two points off a UEFA place with nine games to go AT WORST.

"If people only ever spin something one way" I don't. After Man U away in the Cup I was fking furious. Today was nowhere near as bad as that.

boro_roddam Posted on 5/3 15:37
re: Not a bad performance

Er.. Jimmy held the ball up very well today.

It was a poor performance but we did boss the game for large parts of it without really doing anything.

Bishop_Auckland_Red Posted on 5/3 15:38
re: Not a bad performance

It wasn't as bad because Aston Villa were rubbish! Man United would of put 5 or 6 past us easily.

MyBoro Posted on 5/3 15:39

Lets see where we are when everybody is level on games played, shall we?

And, believe it or not, Buddy, not every comment in my post was aimed at you. Briggsy comes out with the same shtick no matter what the result is. If it doesn't apply to you then you don't need to presume it does.

it was a shocking performance.
Played well below par and deserved what we got, in fact it should of been more. We only had 2 decent shots and they were blocked and off target by jimmy and the up and coming graham.
Needs to better im affraid

gadgemasterfunk Posted on 5/3 17:33
re: Not a bad performance

Our defence is poor at the moment and the manager worries about our midfield gtting over run when the other team breaks so that is why he played negative with 451. Just a very cautious approach and you can see jimmy'sfrustrations on the pitch

re: Not a bad performance

mcclaren himself even said the performance wasnt good enough

Coulth Posted on 5/3 17:42
re: Not a bad performance

No need to be cautious though, we have what is nearly our full strength defence playing now.

We were comfortable in the first half, but should have pushed on and tried to make something happen. If we'd have scored first we would have won that 2-0 or 3-0. But we are reacting to other teams rather than grasping the initiative like we did early in the season, putting the opposition on the back foot.

Yeah, we've got a few injuries, but with that team out today I'd expect better. 4-5-1 does not work, we saw that last season.

AwesomeSwells Posted on 5/3 17:43
re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy,
I try to stay detached and, in fact, give you the benefit of the doubt most times.
But I've got to say that with this post I now conclude you are indeed either Keith Lamb or full of shyttington.

There are compensations in your over-positive attitude to life, e.g.
Chap on Beach- 'Run for it, here comes a Tsunami!'
Briggsy: 'Greeeeat! Get the surfboards out!'

MrAngryCurrentlyInAberdeen Posted on 5/3 18:04
re: Not a bad performance

We should make the other team worry about us, instead of worrying about them. Do that, and you're beaten before the game starts.

WilmslowRed Posted on 5/3 18:10
re: Not a bad performance

Just got back. Worst performance of the Season by a mile. Villa were rock bottom on confidence after getting stuffed by Everton last week, their fans were just about struggling to raise the enthusiasm for another demonstration against Doug Ellis, there was an air of doom and gloom about the place, so what did we do ? Turn up and play 4-5-1 (in reality, 4-3-1, Nemeth and Parlour made no positive contribution to our play at all, lost count of the number of times they lost the ball between them), we had no efforts of any note in the first half, allowed them time on the ball to pass it around and get a bit of confidence, then once we conceded the inevitable goal, only then did we go 4-4-2 and bring Graham on. They were there for the taking today - but we'll never know if playing 4-4-2 from the start would have helped, because we were far too defensive and negative. I'm not a boo-boy by any means and I support Maclaren in what he has done so far and the distance he has brought us from the mess he inherited when he took over, but today was the first time I have felt that he got things wrong and went ultra-cautious when the game was there to be won. I can only hope the players were saving themselves for Thursday night but that isn't really any consolation for the fans that paid to travel down to support the team. Big test today and we failed miserably.

re: Not a bad performance

Ludicrous Briggsy. Utterly ludicrous. How you can expect anyone to take your Boro comments seriously after that is beyond me.

That performance is typical of how we've been playing since early December. Boring, defensive rubbish with players who couldn't pass wind let alone a ball - and the club want people to pay £265 to follow that shyte to Portugal.

We've clung on to 6th place because every other team has been crap. We don't deserve 6th spot and are lucky not to be bottom half.

McClaren is the new Robson.

Briggsy - not big and not clever son.

When it looks like shyte and smells like shyte, then for my money......it's shyte.

I'm all for being up for the next game, but that was very poor indeed, and Mac needs to start looking at ways to make us perform better, whether it's tactics or players who are just not performing being replaced by the kids.

peako_from_the_boro Posted on 5/3 20:04
re: Not a bad performance

The view from Box 27 - Doug Ellis Stand

The view was fine till the formation and tactics came out and spoilt it.

I can only assume that he picked Parnaby ahead of McMahon cos he's better in the air than Barry, but christ he was poor on the deck.

Talking to Villa lads before the game they were really fearful about what we may do to them, by full time they could not believe how we had given it to them.

Defensive minded again, too many having the poorest game of the season (I'm looking at you Parlour and Downing), Nemeth maintaining the depths he's plumbed to. and JFH getting more irate and inneffectual for the entire first 45 mins is just not good enough.

Just insipid, the whole bloody day, insipid.

And then I come back to the most pathetic interpretation of a game I have ever read in my life. Briggsy phuck off and stay very quiet 'till McLaren REALLY decides to attempt to get an MFC team to play to the same level you IMAGINE he does every week.

borodrew Posted on 5/3 20:10
re: Not a bad performance

i agree it was an awful performance and briggsy is being way too optomistic, but some of you are also going way over the top on the negative side like its the end of the world. dreadful performance but weve got ourselves in a still good position from the first half of the seasons performances, so we know we can do it.

actually, maybe thats why people are so dissapointed. we know where a lot lot beter than that, even with key players missing.

despite this result, i still think we will finish 6th or 7th and have a decent run in.

boro74 Posted on 5/3 20:57

re: Not a bad performance

He should stick with borderline pillock. Its a step in the right direction :)

Standherds Posted on 5/3 21:31
re: Not a bad performance

I was fairly close to the pitch and the first moment that gave me cause for concern was JFH not attempting to keep a ball in play that was within his skills, after that Parnaby was not looking to overlap and at one point seemed to be actually trying to keep goal side of his marker whilst he was attacking, this left our player who had the ball no support whatsoever. Maybe sometimes its our passing that lets us down but today they didnt seem to know where each other was likely to move, consequently individual players held it for too long before flapping and then releasing it into a busy midfield. All said and done we are 6th and Im going to be glued to the radio for the City Bolton game.

Standherds Posted on 5/3 21:39
re: Not a bad performance

Id also question the warm up routine, if its that cold then the safest way to warm up is surely to jog and sprint and walk around the pitch so that each man is working to the same level of activity. That is surely better than what we had today, a squad circle and only 3 players at any 1 time playing piggy in the middle, its too jumbled and and players seem too intent on keeping on their toes as opposed to getting warmed up ready to graft, just an opinion.

BoroMod Posted on 6/3 0:24
re: Not a bad performance

I thought we were an absolute disgrace, totally inept. We've not played well all year and today was the culmination of an awful run of games. How anyone can defend today is beyond me.

Mad_Sandwich Posted on 6/3 1:07
re: Not a bad performance

Wasn't at the game but 'absolute disgrace' is a bit harsh from what I saw on the telly. With the resources we had we did a reasonable job. I wish Mac had tightened up more after half time but he's been crucified for being too negative loads of times before so what to do apart from brining on, well who?.

Well disappointed, but we've been bastrd unlucky with our injuries and if u were a Dr withouth the propper tools you could be excused for losing a patient or two.

BoroMod Posted on 6/3 1:38
re: Not a bad performance

We had a reasonably strong team out today, you can't continually blame injuries. Maybe "an absolute disgrace" is a bit harsh but it was the worst performance of the season against a team who did not play well at all.

re: Not a bad performance

a disappointing performance but not much of a surprise. we have rode our luck this season and that luck was going to run out. i'm getting a bit bored of people wheeling out the injury excuses. Every team has injuries, so you have to live with it and get on with things. Maybe we should have a bigger squad to handle it. biggest disappointment was going 451. This was against a team that lost about 4-1 in their last home game, so why woprry about them and change things.let them worry about us.

we still have some tough games left:- arsenal at home,newcastle,liverpool and mancity away. So that leaves 5 must win games starting with southampton.

w have to improve if we want to get back into europe. Only concern is that if we get knocked out of uefa cup then the season coukld fall apart. hopefully viduka will improve things when he comes back

re: Not a bad performance

For the record I never posted the original post in this thread, or any others posts. As I was out all yesterday with my mates. Someone must know my password.

So all those who saddo's who stuck the knife in have officially been punk'd by who ever posted this thread. As for goats comment about I love the attention. I'm not the one who sits in front of his computer on a Saturday night and every other night spouting the some old shyte. At least I actually contribute to the board, I canít think what you bring to the board.


As for the game, I didnít think first half was too bad. It wasnít pretty to watch I agree. But we would have went in happier at half time. Second half was a none starter, we had no attacking outlet in midfield. The performance wasnít good enough, simple as that.

I'm glad i steered away from the board yesterday because of the usual idiots, who have come out of the woodwork claiming doomsday is upon us. Itís the same shyte after every defeat.

The_GOAT Posted on 6/3 16:28

Touting
Not a bad performance

re: Not a bad performance

have you been intouch with admin about someone having your password? Does this explain a lot of your posts over the last few years? who did you give your password to?

20_Briggsy Posted on 6/3 19:33
re: Not a bad performance

Just me, and my bro occasionally.

I dont save my passwords on the computer.

re: Not a bad performance

You should ask rob then who's that IP adress is if no one at home knows your password

Bobby_DazzIer Posted on 6/3 21:34
re: Not a bad performance

So who made the post then Briggsy? Admin are not privvy to peoples passwords, these are only known to Rivals HQ. So that means the post was either made by you, your brother or somebody at Rivals. Now I doubt somebody at rivals would have have had the inclinatation to do such a thing so that means it was you or your brother. have you asked your brother if it was him?

By the way would you agree that the opinions expressed in the first post are ludicrous.

re: Not a bad performance

Well I wouldn't, whether he would or not. Pretty poor wind-up when it's based on a reasonable assessment of the game I saw.

Bobby_DazzIer Posted on 6/3 21:59
re: Not a bad performance

Well that makes two of you Buddy. At least you are not claiming somebody has stolen your password.

Except that Briggsy's disowned the first comment, so it's just me now.

20_Briggsy Posted on 7/3 7:26
re: Not a bad performance

I havnt disowned any comments, I never posted the original thread in this post.

Simple as that.

Bobby_DazzIer Posted on 7/3 8:31
re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy - If I may ask you again. Who did make the original post then if it wasn't you? Was it your brother or do you think somebody at Rivals HQ dreamt this little deception up?

Also do you agree with the first post or do you think it as a little bit silly?

re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy, you are gutless; we would have more respect if you admitted you have no idea about football and stood by your words.

re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy, Iv'e told me wife that she has to have your children. If you are free for say 30 seconds on Wednesday I will give you her mobile number. BTW Don't tell anyone and the 30 seconds won't be too boring.

sasboro Posted on 7/3 9:55
re: Not a bad performance

Have you found out yet who posted as you? was it admin or your brother or do we have a ghost on this website

Buddy Posted on 7/3 9:59
re: Not a bad performance

Can I stand by his (or whoever's) words while refusing to admit that I have no idea about football?

boro_Maverick Posted on 7/3 10:07

No Buddy!

re: Not a bad performance

Rightio then.

Were we appallingly behind Villa in the first hour?

Was Danny Graham just about to come on when they scored their first?

(No and yes are the answers you're looking for BTW)

WilmslowRed Posted on 7/3 11:30
re: Not a bad performance

Buddy - I agree - we were equal with Villa for the first hour. Equally bad that is. They were there for the taking if we could string more than 2 passes together without losing posession. Which we couldn't.

Winston_Spangler Posted on 7/3 11:41
re: Not a bad performance

Villa were shitte. We were worse by two goals. We do have injuries but there was nothing positive in the performance at all. Apart from the fact that he brought Graham on before Job which displays that Graham will probably start ahead of Job next time we play 4-4-2 and a few tremendous cross field passes from the Dangerous One.

Winston_Spangler Posted on 7/3 11:47
re: Not a bad performance

I'd also say that posting on someone elses username is a bit shitte. But I do get the feeling it's a bit of the boy who cried wolf kind of tale. If you keep posting pro-mcclaren type shitte eventually people will believe that anything rediculous you say comes from your own mind. I am not anti-mac or pro-mac. I am pro-objectivity.

re: Not a bad performance

Briggsy never did this post, fuc@ in hell, i was with him and others at the time of the post and we werent nowhere near a computer so stop all this shi@.

Winston_Spangler Posted on 7/3 11:55
re: Not a bad performance

Yeah but my boy who cried wolf analogy still applies.

sasboro Posted on 7/3 12:00

save_50_percent, is that really you are just someone else posting as you? prove it is really you!

bandito, you think what most people on here know.

20_Briggsy Posted on 7/3 18:36
re: Not a bad performance

Do people not know how to read anymore? For the final time I did not post the original thread. Can anyone admin conform its not from this IP?

As for those still having a pop at me, at least I'm consistent in my opinions. Unlike many on here. Who's opinions change at the turn of a result. Its so easy for any mug to come out and claim how shyte we are when things arnt going well. Which is why we see a large amount of traffic on here after EVER defeat. Yet when we win, there's hardly a murmur.

I donít seem to remember many people slagging me off when we won the carling cup, or qualified for European football. I think my confidence and faith in McClaren's leadership has been justified.

Like I said, Saturdays second half performance at Villa simply wasnít good enough. I know one will be quicker to admit that than the manager himself.

Youve just proved your not Briggsy either, the real one would never say 'I no one will ever be quicker.................'

We have a Briggsy imposter on the board!

I'm consistently inconsistent.

Anything else to bore me with? Any admin about the check the IP?

BobUpndown Posted on 7/3 19:42
re: Not a bad performance

I'm one of the more optimistic posters, I think, and after a couple of days to mull the performance over.. and my first look at the board for a few days..
I'd have to say it was a pith poor performance.. we got what we deserved, nothing.
Yes we have injuries, but so did they.. they had hardly any strikers of note.. Vassell had been out for months.. not match fit or sharp.. yet we still decided to defend like lemons..
Tactics I can go with.. but blinkered adherence to a defensive 451.. when we need WINS.. nah.. Mc got it wrong on Saturday BIG TIME.. and it could cost us a UEFA spot..

we were pathetic 2nd half Saturday.. and poor first half..

re: Not a bad performance

Shoot me. Please, somebody shoot me. I cannot resist reading Briggsy posts but they make me want to stab my own eyes out. It's a dangerous addiction. I find similar destructive urges to read Peter Hitchens in the Mail and previously Burchill in the Guardian. You know what you are going to see will be utter twaddle, detached from reality and lack even the slightest attempt at impartiality but you still have to torture yourself. Anyone who watched the Villa match and was left feeling something other than embarassment should seek medical help immediately because they are not of sound mind. I very nearly went to that game and if I had paid for a ticket I think I may have been physically sick. An utter utter disgrace.
