Don`t be laughing too loud just yet Douglas dear boy,you may yet end up with a severe case of "eouf de la visage" Looking at your remaining fixtures I can`t see you getting more than 7 points . Also you`ve had a lot to say in the past about us buying dodgy strikers for ridiculous money,but you appear to have bought a proper gem in Alves,he`s hardly gonna keep you up from what I`ve seen.........Would you like "Aussie lightning" back on loan ? I think he may be slightly fitter and slimmer than your man Alves.Good luck Doug we`re all gonna need it and for what it`s worth even if you only get 5 points between now and the end of the season I believe you will still finish above our illustrious neighbours, the Irish social club ( sunderland ) I only hope that the toon can do the same.
All fair and reasonable comments Davey although I do take offence that Alves is not fitter or slimmer than Dukes. He had not played football for 6 weeks before joining us and while my personal target of 15 goals for him (all the players at Boro take personal interest in the targets I set!) may now seem a bit far lets not judge the old goat before he has asked for a move and refused to play for us!
We are in a dice rolling position (both of us) personally, while I would laugh heartily at you going down, I dont think it will happen to either of us. 2 Reading wins and were both nervous!
I have no doubt what so ever that Alan Shearer is on the wind up on your board but you have to admit (reread them) they are #$%$ funny.
I think there is only one slot left for relegation Derby and Fulham are down? Any thoughts?
