Middlesbrough vs Swansea (A)

[Image: dX8uaXd.jpg]

Saturday 3pm brings us a do or die clash as Tony Pulis’ Middlesbrough battle Graham Potter’s Swansea. Boro failed to arrest their terrible slump in form last time out against the Robins, so you might be asking yourself what chance do we have against a much more impressive bird: the Swan? Luckily Boro get to play this fixture with Away field advantage and you can’t get much further away than the Liberty Stadium…

With Play-off places fast disappearing over the horizon, this feels like a must win with only 7 games left to make up the gap and a lot of teams competing. Could a defeat be TPs last game in charge?
 
The Reverse Fixture
Earlier on in the season - at the Riverside - the result was a drab 0-0 draw played out during Boro’s barren home spell in front of goal. We play Swansea in a barren spell again, having failed to score in our last 3 matches and without a victory in 6.

View from the Opposition
Nothing as of yet.
 
Questions
How many more shots can we have without scoring?
Will there be any changes to the starting XI?
Score predictions for this one?
Can we still make Top 6?
Would you “give it Woodsy till the end of the season”?

About as exciting as our last trip to wales I fear

I can only see defeat but we might scrape a draw if they fail to score as well!

Swansea's recent form is on the up and probably looking for an outside chance of getting into top 6 but highly unlikely but playing Boro will keep their hopes alive.

Sadly another defeat for Tony's fractured club
TMIGOTS......so far!!!

Nice OP foogle, but honestly I don't care. I don't think a loss will get him sacked and I don't think I could handle the rhetoric about still being in It, We've turned a corner, #believe, #keepthefaith if we somehow managed to win.

For me it's 1 down, 6 to go. And then (hopefully) we can move on from TP and maybe by the start of next season brexit will be sorted to a degree and the SG can either follow pulis or start putting the club towards the top of his priority list again.

Until then, I repeat, I don't care

Exactly how I've started to see it.  Just want the games to come quickly so we can get the season over with.

2-0 Swansea

I'll go 2-0 Swansea, good result last night for them against Brentford, I never ever thought I'd say this about a Boro team but I seriously don't want us to make the play offs, I want this *** gone, so I'll sacrifice this season for Pulis's head on a platter.

Well I think you said at the start of the season that you thought we'd finish midtable, I doubt being correct about that has bought you much joy though Sad
