Team talk before Blackpool game

CK: Chris Kamara (Manager)
MV: Mark Venus (Assistant)
RW: Rhys Williams (Captain)
FH: Faris Haroun (Player)
GL: Grant Leadbitter (Useless donkey)
ME: Marvin Emnes (Player)

CK: Boys, take a seat.
MV: Grant! Get over here!
GL: Jesus, Calm down Mark!
CK; Shut up! As you know, form recently has been pretty crap. 3 draws in a row. Outplayed in all of them. Guys. Why are we top? Is it because we are good? Are we just on a patchy run?
All: Yes!
CK: Then end it! Jonathan's been out with injury. Guys, what's going wrong? Are we misssing him and his experience?
All except GL: Yes!
GL: 'Course not!
MV: Grant, shut the hell up!
CK: Grant, for god's sake, this is why you're being sold! Anyway, we are playing Blackpool. They are 15th! We should beat them because if we don't we won't deserve to be champions. Do you want to be champions? Do you?
All: YES!
RW: Come on lads!
FH: Lets win this lads!
CK: Marvin, you need to be scoring. You've only got 2 goals this whole season. You scored against Charlton, so you'd better do it again or Ishmael Miller will be back as soon as he's fit. Marvin, get out there and prove a point!
ME: I'm up for it boss!
CK: Let's get out there and win this game! WE CAN DO IT!
this is a amazing story :) keep it up

Sam Matterface: Hello and welcome to the Riverside Stadium for the npower Championship title clash between Middlesbrough and Wolves! I'm Sam Matterface and the man by my side is Jim Proudfoot.
Jim Proudfoot: Thank you Sam, Boro are really flying under Chris Kamara but they have recently been on a poor run of form which has seen only 1 win in 4 games.
SM: Don't forget, Boro won at Molineux on the opening day. Lets look at the line ups.

Boro: Steele, Hoyte, Woodgate, Bikey, Friend, Bailey, McEachran, Shinnie, Haroun, Carayol, Emnes.

Wolves: Ikeme, Foley, Berra, Johnson, Ward, Hammil, Henry, Chaplow, Tabb, Hunt.

1:SM: Hammill down the right. Passes short to Chaplow, but thats a poor touch. Karl Henry on the ball and Oh! Dreadful tackle from George Friend! He is extremely lucky that he hasn't been booked for that!
JP: Yes, he came in late, studs up, and could of even been sent off for that one Sam! Free kick to Wolves.

14: SM: Wolves have the ball now. Chaplow with the cross field ball to Tabb. Oh, and he's done well to find Ward down the left. Ward puts it in the box and YES! IT IS IN! KEVIN DOYLE HAS SCORED AND WOLVES LEAD EARLY ON!
JP: Fantastic cross from Ward and Adam Hamill brings it down, Doyle is in space and just powers it in! 1-0!

24: JP: Corner! Some poor defending from Boro there.
SM: Hunt whips it in... GOAL! ROGER JOHNSON HAS MADE IT 2! Boro are sinking without trace here!
JP: Good ball to the far post by Hunt, and Johnson lept high and headed it at Steele with such force the keeper could only parry it into the net! 2 goals to nil!

32: JP: Boro are piecing theur play together and could get a goal very soon! Oh, great ball by McEachran, Emnes takes it past a defender, chance here?
SM: Definitely Jim! Emnes with a chance, squares to Carayol... and how Faris Haroun has not scored there I will never know! Carayol crosses to Haroun, free header, open goal, wide of the mark! Shocking header there Jim!

45: JP: Well, bad first half from Boro, but can they turn it around? Second half, up next.

50: SM: Boro keeping possesion in their own half now. Bikey. Long ball to Haroun, early cross and YES! MARVIN EMNES HAS PULLED ONE BACK!
JP: Wolves know they should have defended better there. Emnes latches on to the cross and volleys past Ikeme! Game on!

60: JP: Hunt with the corner into the box... Doyle! Goal! KEVIN DOYLE HAS PUT THE GAME TO BED SURELY! 3-1! Any way back now?
SM: Surely not Jim.

72: JP:The substitute Rhys Williams with the corner for Middlesbrough...half cleared by Berra...volley from Shinnie...GOAL! BORO BACK IN IT AGAIN! ANDREW SHINNIE!
SM: This is quite a match! Shinnie caught it perfectly and beat Ikeme easily! 3-2!

77: SM: Hunt on the ball, he's lost it to Hoyte, Hoyte to Haroun, through ball to Emnes... 3-3! BRILLIANT! HE SHOOTS FROM OUT THE BOX AND SCORES!
JP: Emnes has levelled the game! He has beaten Ikeme from quite a distance there!

83: JP: Williams with the corner, Bikey gets his head to the ball and SCORES! 4-3! WHAT AN ABSOLUETLY UNBELIEVABLE FIGHTBACK!
SM: Bikey has flicked it to the far post and it has gone in!

87: SM: Wolves attack.. McEachran heads away.
JP: Williams has it now, long ball to Haroun, there is a chance here for a counter attack, Haroun, into the box, MCEACHRAN! HE FINISHES THE MOVE HE STARTED!
SM: Low drive, McEachran just touches it past Ikeme! 5-3!

90:JP: Full time! Well, did you expect this at half-time? Ha, what a comeback victory!
Ooh, 49 replies! ;)

Injury Report
Andrew Shinnie (2 months) Rhys Williams (4 weeks) Emmanuel Ledesma (3 months) Pablo Sicilia (2 months) Andre Bikey (3 months) Justin Hoyte (2 weeks)

Managers notes: A very, very frustrating month. Too many draws against sides we should be beating, and way to many injuries. All our best players are injured except for McEachran, and it is a very good thing we have already agreed a deal to sign Marcin Wasilewski. It is a shame that Stephen McManus has to leave but he is a top earner and we can't afford to pay him to sit on the bench. The Wolves game was dreadful really. We won in the end but the first half performance was unacceptable. Thank god we played so well in the second half.

Unbelievable Player Of The Month:
So far this season he's barely been able to hit a barn door with a banjo, but Marvin Emnes has hit form now with 4 goals this month. He started the comeback against Wolves and scored a cracker against them too. He has only 5 goals in 24 games though, so he still needs to improve.

Unbelievable Goal Of The Month:
Mustapha Carayol's fantastic effort against Blackpool. He received the ball on the halfway line, dribbled past 3 defenders and scored from out the box, into the bottom corner.
Well, you were still undefeated, so that's something to be happy about I guess? :P :)

Yeah, and that we are 11 points clear at the top because Bristol City are in second, and they really aren't very good. Notice how all the wins this month were against teams wearing old gold or orange.
Love it. Congratulations on the 1000 views mate. Really deserve it ;)
LJO, just wanted to say that you've put a ton of effort into this and that it's a brilliant read. I want more updates. :P

Thanks Arvind, there will be a transfer update soon. I have signed one and sold one, but I'm not telling who yet.

Wasilewski joins Boro,10,1.jpg
Polish international defender Marcin Wasilewski has officialy signed for npower Championship leaders Middlesbrough. The defender, who had been playing for Anderlecht since 2007, has signed for a fee of just £35k. He stated on his arrival " I am delighted to be here and I hope to end my career here. I have been playing for Anderlecht for years so I was very disappointed to be placed on the transfer list" Boro however will not be unhappy that he was put up for sale as Chris Kamara has admitted he was looking to sign him at the start of the season. " I have been following Marcin ever since I came here and I am so pleased to have finally got my man". In other transfer news, Boro's ex-captain Stephen McManus has joined Motherwell for £350k. Wasilewski is thought to have been signed as a replacement, yet the official word says otherwise as McManus had barely played this season.
Will he be first team?
Yes, he will be at least for now since most of my defenders are injured.
What is the current ability?
