    Oh dear...

    Yes the game today was won by the black and white and easily so....however I am afraid your rose tinted glasses need to be removed as both sides will not survive in the current English Premiership...M'bro are in a terrible state as a consequence of bad buys from the former manager and a lack of quality youth coming through from our current crop....Temporary hired help will never solve your problem as they know they always have another home to return too..we are in trouble but I am not convinced that things will not improve for us and worsen for yourselves as the season progresses...Your problems have not disappeared and are still simmering away in the background...your current team management and coaching staff will not be able to get similar results out of the existing players without some new blood when you go up...

    • I never said NUFC played well, so I don't know where your rose tinted glasses line sprang from, but nevermind?

      For a club in crisis like NUFC to be sat 10 points clear at the top of fizzy pop league is nothing short of amazing, but the players have got stuck in and deserve to be where they are!

      I'm fully aware of the gulf in quality between the Premiership and the Championship, but it's far more likely that NUFC will return to the Premiership sooner whilst Boro might never return later.

      • Appologies Mr Jigsaw...I concluded from the tone of your email that you felt your team were too good for the league they cuurently reside in, and perhaps you are correct in this assumption as all your players are proven Premiership quality....however not everything is rosey in your garden as you've mentioned hence my reference...

        Your team are doing very well considering the back room garbage which has gone on in the last year or so and hope this good fortune continues for you....

        We as football fans always try to see the best in our clubs even when times are very difficult as my team is experiencing now....things are not as rosey in either of are camps as we would like to thinks so....

        With regards to m'bros return to the top flight...well realistically speaking I think we are more likely to go down than up the way the team is playing and the lack of cohesiveness is very transparent..To be a good side is not about having 11 super stars but playing as a team with may be a couple of superstars thrown in to give you that edge......you guys have a good team and really just need those coupl of super stars to make you into a true top ten premiership side.....we are a long way from that, but I await to see Mr Strachans influence.....Cheers and all the best..!
