    but why do most of our boys play in England (keepers) is it just we're rated higher there or achieve more in the English style of play?

    This goes without saying, makes it even more impressive Bob Bradley's work in Egypt, Norway and France.

    Norway and France has a lot of English speakers but it doesn't take away from him taking on the challenges he did there.

    was Middlesbrough the only PL club that was interested in Guzan this past summer?

    Starting against Leicester in 6 minutes. Valdes got injured I think.

    Watching my daughter set up a superhero pet hospital was more exciting than that game.

    To be fair, that sounds very exciting.

    Was this a hospital run by superheroes for pets? Or was it a hospital for the pets of superheroes? Or was it a hospital for pets that themselves are superheroes?

    It was for superheroes and pets.There was a clear emergency,because the play kitchen had been converted into a hospital.However,all was well by the time I was invited to watch the ballerina dinner theater.

    Outstanding. Perhaps she could put together a Hospital Ball, in honor of Boro's backline, for pet royalty and superheroes' plus ones.

    At the risk of being "that guy" I will simply say, I've got one D home for the holidays and another inches from getting her license. I'd give many bottles of ancient whisky for a few more years of super hero pet hospital (or, in my case, doing all the Bert lines in Mary Poppins while making a marionette dance every night before bed - btw, my step in time rocks.)

    Ok, back to your regularly scheduled whatever we're doing.... Oh ya, Brad. Good to get the clean sheet.

    He was credited with 3 saves in a 3-0 win. Boro played the last half-hour down a man.

    Guzan didn't have a lot to do for the last 2 games but he has done well when called upon. He's not made any mistakes unlike valdes who has made a fair few!

    To be fair, Valdes does well for someone in his 50s

    Guzan back to the bench today. Boro 0-0 FT. Brad's gum spitting got a 7.
