    Team for Boro

    I'd start Nuhiu. Has got a good scoring record against Boro.

    Hull FC U18s 0 v 2 SWFC U18s

    I get the feeling a fair few of these lads will be fast tracked over the next couple of seasons or so and given the amount of first team players out of contract next summer this will probably need to happen?

    Sam Winnall

    He's got maybe around two months to push for a place in the team? How successful he is during this period will probably determine whether we look to move him on sooner rather than later? He could be an asset but then again competition for places up top will be intense if it isn't already? At the moment I see Joao, Forrestieri and maybe Matias as the forwards who will be the most productive this season.

    Jos v Carlos - 38 games in

    I just think the job and expectation levels are different to Carlos’ time at the club and now. Carlos did a better job than a lot think on here because he got us to two play-off campaigns including a final. Unfortunately because he ultimately failed to get us promoted within a couple of seasons the wheels started to come off because Carlos’ way of managing is not conducive to producing success over a sustained period of time. Jos is to a large extent working with players who he’s inherited and probably will be continuing to do so for sometime. I get both arguments about the job he’s doing so far. Fans are right to praise him about how things are going at the moment and Fans are right to question why we seem to lack an identity as a team and a consistent pattern of play. My argument is if we’re constantly altering the starting eleven and tactics then the opposition aren’t going to have a clue as to how to deal with us and this for me gives Jos the edge over Carlos. Carlos had a fantastic Plan A that almost succeeded but no Plan B and subsequently we got found out and we eventually struggled. Under Jos I don’t see us hitting the proverbial brick wall. As for this season it could still literally go either way but the results over almost half a season of championship football including the last 10 games of last season show us as a side that picks up points on a regular basis and that’s never a bad habit to have.

    Boro Away form

    Nuhiu has a good record against Boro. If he starts I think we'll win.

    Why don't the bookies fancy our chances?

    I think a lot of it is down to Lukuhay as he’s not a name or has a proven track record here. I’ve noticed we’re usually a decent price for a win. You could’ve got 3/1 on us at Hills to beat Bristol City. I get the feeling we’re going to go right under the radar this season even if we hang around where we are in the table for long spells. I’m also quietly confident with all the attention on United and Leeds as well as some others, we’re likely to continue plodding on without any pressure or expectations and I suspect that’s just how Jos likes it?

    I wonder if DC...

    The core of the squad that got us into the Top 6 remains. First eleven personnel has changed a bit with Jos seemingly getting more out of CC’s peripheral players like Nuhiu, Joao, Pudil and Matias as well as his trust in the youth but the experience and proven quality for a play-off push exists and this may over 46 games give us an edge over Leeds and United?

    I think Joao would be further on in his development had Carlos has played him more often. Definitely has the talent but at the moment is starting to show a consistent end product. Will be a target for some bigger clubs come the end of the season IMO.

    Any news on Bannan injury

    Still think Abdi will play a part this season. Can see Jos getting a tune out of him similarly to Matias.

    Playoffs baby!!!!!

    I must admit that I’m surprised to see us where we currently are but at the same time the table is pretty tight from 5th to 15th and we’re not exactly out of touch from the Top 4 so it could be another 5-10 games before the table settles down and we get a good idea of where we are. We haven’t been what I would call convincing but we find a way in the main of getting results and what gives me some hope for the future is Jos much like Carlos uses his squad and therefore come the last 10-15 games of the season we should be fresher when compared to other teams and this may make a difference at the business end? Perhaps we’re starting to see why Jos has got the reputation that he has in Germany and as left field an appointment it was again has the chairman called it right again?

    Shocking but happy

    The best side in the league lost 1-0 at Bristol City

    Bristol City - V -The Wednesday OMDT

    It never ceases to amaze me how sh!t the referees we get are. No fairness in football for us?

    Bristol City - V -The Wednesday OMDT

    Injury time is a joke for us. Chasing the game, it’s 2 or 3 minutes. Holding on to a lead and it’s the best part of 10 minutes. Tw@ts!
