Boro vs Blackburn
Boro vs Blackburn
Sky Bet Championship
Eighteen games into the season and Boro are sitting pretty on a points total of thirty two in the lofty position of third in the league. Many were left disappointed after the draw last Saturday so Boro will be keen to get back to winning ways.
Boro go into Saturday's game with only one defeat in thirteen games. They have only leaked thirteen goals all season, conceding only seven since the start of September. Performance wise it wasn't pretty against Wigan. Karanka will want to ring the changes particularly after such a lacklustre showing in the first half. Boro will need to up their game as we head into December, some tough games looming on our horizon.
The squad will mostly be available for Karanka to choose from. Clayton is forced to sit this one out as he reached five yellow cards on Saturday to earn the automatic one match ban. Long term absentees Rhys Williams, Damia Abella and Mustapha Carayol are all out for the foreseeable future.
Last 5 Games
Wigan 1 - 1 Boro
Boro 0 - 0 Bournemouth
Boro 4 - 0 Norwich
Rotherham 0 - 3 Boro
Boro 1 - 1 Watford
Blackburn come into Saturday's game off the back of a win against Leeds. Down to ten men they fought back from one nil down to overcome Leeds with a penalty in the eighty eigth minute. They have had a decent start to the season so far with eight wins, six draws and only four defeats. It is interesting to note that they have only kept two clean sheets all season so there is definitely opportunity for Boro to score.
Blackburn 2 - 1 Leeds
Brighton 1 - 1 Blackburn
Millwall 2 - 2 Blackburn
Blackburn 3 - 1 Reading
Forest 1 - 3 Blackburn

The Little Fella Returns
Juninho is visiting the Riverside on Saturday. The prodigal son returns to watch the team that holds a special place in his heart. Boro plan on introducing him before kick off. I can already hear his song echoing around the Riverside. Let's hope that he gets to see a cracking game with Boro taking all three points
* Whitehead or Veljkovic to replace Clayton?
* Can Tomlin play on the left like he did against Wigan in the second half?
* Fredricks to start every game unless injured?
* How would you rectify the gap between midfield and attack when we play teams that press high up the field?
* Favourite memory of TLF?
Just heard the sad news that John Neal who managed Boro in past times has passed away . He was hugely responsible for bring the likes of David Hodgson and Craig Johnston to the fore during his management .
condolences to those close .

A Special Mention
this Thread is just to say thank you to Bugrit who deserves a special mention.
Bugrit has been designing a program capable of reading the predictions, working out the scores, placing them in the fixture list for results and then formatting League tables.
he has taken a 2-3 hour job and made it more like a couple of minutes
Big Kudos to you Bugrit and once again many thanks for your hard work
oneboro predictions league 14/15 week ending 23/11/14 results
after some mixed emotions of this weekends result, ihave decide it was prbably a good one against a Wigan side with some new momentum with a new manager and making good use of the international break. but who else made so momentum this weekend? and who is now cursing the break in play?

Vossen's loan deal
Does anyone know if it can be terminated in January or is he here until the end of the season regardless?
Help with login, please
I'm hoping someone might have some advice but I'm having trouble logging in to my account sometimes.
I can log in fine on my Kindle Fire tablet, and that's what I often use, but when I try to log in on my laptop (using Firefox, Chrome or IE) or my work computer (Mac with Safari or Firefox) I put in my details, it tells me I've successfully logged in but then returns to saying I'm a guest and asking me to log in before I post.
I've tried clearing cookies, and ensuring I'm logged out on the tablet before logging in elsewhere. No joy.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
If anyone has this programme would they look at Page 13 as I understand it is the page where MFC interview BoroDownUnder whom I am sure a lot of you remember has recently joined the forum and met up with a few of us at the Brighton game.
Just would like to know what it said really?
How much will it take?
Just after reading the article the Gazette done (by the way, how much better has the gazettes coverage of Boro got in the past few weeks? Very impressed) about which loan signing we'd like here permanently if money were no object and it got me thinking.
How much do you think it would take to sign each player, and how high would you be willing to go for each? And which do you think we have a realistic hope of signing?
