  1. 'The Independent' are now also reporting that Lampard has been unsuccessful in his attempt to sign him on loan...
  2. Average performance. Not scintillating, not absolutely dire, just mediocre. We are a decent, probably top six standard Championship side and play like one with all the strengths, weaknesses and inconsistency that entails. Virtually all Championship teams demonstrate similar peaks and troughs during a season. Of course we all hope for more/better but it is what it is...
  3. Predictable derby game. Scrappy and lacking quality. Always the same. Thought the crowd were nervous which perhaps explains the slight lack of atmosphere. Away fans are generally louder than home fans in any case as it's the 'core' that tend to travel. It wouldn't surprise me if we are louder than them at the away fixture. Thought a draw was a fair result. We were below par and they are nothing to write home about really.
  4. Was 14 to 16 between 1996 and 1998 so Igor, Eranio, Wanchope, Baiano, Asanovic etc...
  5. No real opinions on who should play. Frank sees them every day and I'll be happy with whatever he decides to go with. Bit of a clichè but this game will tell us a lot about our progress and where we are as promotion candidates. We played very well and got two great results against Sheff Utd and WBA (especially as an away performance). Both those teams, however, play in sympathy with our strengths. With the players we have I fancy us to go toe to toe with any team in the league and come out on top in an open game. Middlesbrough's style and strengths have more in common with the sides we tend to struggle against (Rotherham, Milwall, Bolton etc) but they do it better. If we get a performance and a result on Saturday it will give a genuine indication that we are starting to learn and adapt and that we really have nothing to fear in this league and could go all the way.
