Boro Back on the Beeb!
The BBC in it's wisdom finally decided that Middlesbrough Football Club were worthy of a live spot to grace the Nations population to give them the chance to view the mighty Boro for themselves!
When? Tuesday the 14th January 2020
Where? The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, White Heart Lane, Tottenham
What time? Kick off 2005 but no doubt a half hour build up before the game or simply just following East Enders?
Why? Because Spurs could not beat the Boro last week and wanted to put on a show for their home supporters but the game will be decided.
An away trip to Southampton in the 4th round of the magical cup, Spurs might like this because they do not like Southampton (what a contridiction in terms) and for Boro another chance to achieve a "giant killing" if they achieve the first one initially.
A major cup shock or saving the best for the game at Fulham 3 days later?
The Squad and Team
Who would you be playing against Spurs and keeping one eye on the Fulham Game?
Is Britt being held back for possible use during next week? Indeed can we see any surprising squad inclusions do you feel?
Do we make a real fight of it and give Spurs a real shocker?
Last time out
For Boro a slightly deflating draw against Derby but for Spurs another loss in the league albeit against Liverpool. One point out of 18 is not good form and the loss of Harry Kane is a real concern for Jose.
Do we have any new injury concerns and are any of the long term injured players making a surprise come back?
A view from Downsouth
What a terrific chance we have for both players and supporters to visit and watch a match at probably one of the best grounds in the United Kingdom so I think we will watch our team play to their very best and make a real fight of it. Yes Spurs have issues but they will not want to go out to a lower league team and Jose will not want another blemish on his record so a fast paced and attack intent game should be played out.
The lucky neutrals who decide to finally watch The Boro will see a really good game.
Yes we have a concern about the Friday game but treat this as a one off (as it is anyway) and just enjoy the experience.
Persoanlly I think this years "dream" will be over but you never know as Spurs players have shown that they too can miss open goals!
