    ......and in full training-kit and bib which, as suspected, clearly suggests that someone on social-media was indulging in a little attention-seeking.

    Seems the rumours were true but it wasn't as bad as first feared...

    I wonder if Warburton dreams of a Bridcutt/McGinn partnership and how good that would be?

    Praised in the post-match interview by AK, who also tried to explain why he didn't play so far ("he was playing very well when I came here, very unlucky with cards and then injury").

    In my humble opinion, I thought his introduction turned the game in our favour.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    I would also like to add that even now, 21 league games later that Jonny Owen pre game montage gives me a raging hard on.

    There is a lot to like about his enthusiasm and his willingness to want the ball but it's still Colback for me if I had to choose between the two. Just a better passer forward and reads the game better.

    Our problem is playing both Watson/Colback and then our transition forward is too slow with the the full-backs, wide-players & #10 not having enough options between them so we probably need a #8 who can creative pass to allow these player more space and time.

    Thought he did well off the bench yesterday.

    Velios made an impact just by being there. Having a second striker gave the Ipswich defence more to think about and Brereton some space to manoeuvre.
    Thatís not belittling Bridcutts impact either. I thought LB did very well too

    Exactly how I see it too. Colback and Watson are both brilliant but if you put what they offered in a Venn diagram I think it'd almost look like one circle.

    You reckon we can find someone from the continent for the 'Clayton role' or we will look closer to home ? Realistically he wants the loan players and we need a LB and CF. That is the sort of needs we require.

    Would have Colback and Bridcutt and utilise them both, sometimes in the same team. Colback against teams who are more slick in possession (Brentford, Fulham), Bridcutt against teams who need it up them a bit more (Cardiff, Millwall) and both against sides who have a bit of both (Villa, Boro).

    As for a number 8, Cash *might* be able to do it, with a bit of work over summer. Certainly has the energy to get up and down the pitch, just needs to improve that first touch and decision making a little bit so not to slow down attacks and not get caught on the ball. He'll still probably be used out wide but it's an option, as is Osborn.

    Not sure to be honest. There's the interview where he said he watched Clayton play against his Boro side for Huddersfield when he was first in the job and knew he wanted to sign him for the role after 10 minutes. Watching videos of how Boro played with Clayton in the team under Karanka you can make a solid argument for him (or that position/role) being the most important on the pitch in Karanka's set up. So there's an argument for him just paying a bit more and getting Clayton; he knows the tactics and what Karanka will expect from him and knows the Championship.

    Especially makes sense if there's a chance he'll be available with Pulis rebuilding.

    Do you reckon Yates sticks around to be 4th or 5th choice centre mid next season? Or would a 6 month loan to a newly promoted team make more sense?

    Would keep him. Watson, Colback, Bridcutt, Yates as your pivot options, with Cash and Osborn if you're desperate.

    Looks pretty shit hot to me, better than anything we've had in yonks.

    No need to keep Cohen, Vaughan or Bouchalakis then, frees up some monies for other positions.

    Guedioura as well though, which means Yates likely to be pushed to 5th choice? Would hate for his progress to suffer just because of the numbers in the squad.

    As you guys mention. We still have options and it may be tough for Yates unless we actually create the space for him. Pre-season will be important but then again there is limited time.

    In an ideal world Scunny are promoted and we have the option open for him to return.

    Gueddy is an interesting scenario. He is playing now but how much does that mean ? Wouldn't say he was an obvious choice at Boro in the short time they were together there. But on his game he does bring the creativity and risk others don't. But there is serious question marks if he still has it anymore. I wonder if he would return to France if we could arrange it and it suited all parties.

    Again I think pre-season is important for Pep, was worried his motor wouldn't be ticking as it once was and that it wouldn't take long for fans to get on his back for it. Didn't see the game yesterday but it sounds as though he had a bit of a stinker. If he can get properly fit in pre-season I think he'll still be a valuable option, like you say he offers something a bit different.
