You have to all forgive my over negativity, not the club's fault, we've really tried, great chairman, and good players who play with passion. I just don't think as we stand that we have enough going forward. I think our strikers are average, our midfield trio behind the forwards are talented but lack pace, apart from adomah who is very inconsistent, and ramirez has barely played for 2 years. Listen I hope your all right, the fallout from this falling through could be very damaging. We have done wonderfully and of course if we repeat our 1st half of season for we will go up, but we are relying too much on inner steel rather than talent.

So with confidence likely to be at its lowest for 2 years, and the discontent of nugent and Co at the breakdown of the Rhodes deal, do people fear Sheffield Wednesday in the playoffs? For certain we will be in this. competition again this year and I feel Wednesday are stronger than boro now, any thoughts?

I knew my negativitybwould draw the club to action lol. Seriously having to eat my words now, for anyone who hasn't seen we've agreed a fee for Rhodes.

Bubblegumkid, you're right I do swing towards the negative which is why its good to have some positivity around me! I just feel Karanka (who is a great manager imo) doesn't have the attacking talent at his disposal for this system. We don't have anyone that can really terrorise defences apart from Adomah who seems to be 1 in 4 this year. Hence we end up trying to do everything through Downing which is easy to read for defenders I feel. Stuani is a great finisher but not mobile enough to burst into the box with regularity from the right, plus he doesn't get great supply really from wide areas. My worry is that we get through on spirit and cohesiveness alone in a lot of games, if we or the opposition are lucky enough to nick a goal, that team usually goes on to win, not easy to rectify without spending millions. Not sure its anyones fault at the club, I just don't think we have the cash to rectify this issue. We've been great in the 1st half of the season but my gut tells me we don't have enough.

afraid to say I disagree, before people shoot me, I lice gibbo and what he's done for us past and present. I do believe though that we have the weakest first 11 out of the top 4. What we do have is spirit, but we lack ability, the back 4 is the best (granted) and Clayton outstanding, Downing should be but doesn't seem to be somehow and the rest are good players who would under normal circumstances be adequate for promition, however they are short of Hull, Burnley, and even Derby (who aren't at the races) in terms of ability. If we don't score first we lose I'm afraid, whereas the others have the ability to win from losing positions. Just my view but think we'll finish 4th. But just to reiterate I like both the manager and chairman, even the players, just don't think we're as good as the rest.
