Are we ready for a relegation battle?

Is playing at home still going to be an advantage, in the absence of crowds?

Very good point. In some ways yes, but the biggest advantage of being at home, that's gonna be missing.

So what you are saying is we could stay up or we could go down. 

Well yeah, and when some are saying we are probably or definitely going down, that's an alternate opinion Billy. 😄

The absence of a crowd might even help to take the pressure off in certain games, who knows. Our home crowd can get antsy pretty quick... it doesn't take a huge amount for the moans and groans to start.

True, but you could have saved yourself so much time and effort by  being far more succinct.

I wasn't trying to be succinct. I was trying to give reason for my opinion.

Barnsley, Luton, Charlton, Hull. That's why I think we'll stay up. I'll predict it now.

However, the last time I predicted a positive outcome for boro was sheff wed at home in august 2014. We were 3-0 down after 60 mins...

 Clearly we will find out who the vocal players are.

Not if they've all got masks on 😄

 

Relegation would really be the cherry on top of the cake that is 2020!

I had a glance at the other teams fixtures and they are just as if not more difficult than ours. 

I dont attach much weight anymore.to who plays who as so many freak results but those saying we are doomed due to our remaining fixtures might gain comfort in looking at our rivals fixtures. 

However, for me its simple. We need 9 or 10pts so we simply need to take care of our own business. I am quietly confident we can now we got a full squad. Utb

We've got a global pandemic, a looming recession, a clown as the leader of our country, a racist madman in charge of the most powerful country in the world but still the worst thing for me is having Woodgate in charge of the Boro.

Aye, it does put it all into perspective when you say it like that 😰

My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games

We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down 

Defensively we're fine, IMHO,

Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell.

I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.

    • To be fair, all of the players who we have been linked with so far make sense. I don’t think we’ll see many mercenaries come to Boro for a pay day, which I’m pleased about.    Touch wood; all the signs seem positive so far in terms of who we’ve been linked with 
    • Ashley Fletcher. The fact he’s overcome so much pressure and “down moments” with us, yet he has still come out stronger on the other side is really admirable. I think that’s a very under rated quality for a footballer to have. I bloody love it seeing him play with confidence and his hard work paying off. Go on LAD!
    • Fletcher.  I honestly think he is our best striker now.  He had a difficult start here, with fans on his back because of his price tag, but has persevered and developed despite all the inadequacies in our coaching set up.  I really like how he and Tav link up.  I am looking forward to seeing how he develops under a manager who knows how to coach players and inspire confidence in them.  
    • To be honest I find it difficult to pick a favourite out as we are at a stage where we have no consistently outstanding players though many are very capable in flashes...I like Johnson going forwards but he terrifies me near our penalty area...Fletch is improving all the time and with a partner that would pass to him, he could improve a lot more...Tav is beginning to show his potential ...but agree with Blanco, Saville very underrated and reminds me a lot of Mustoe...so probably one of those three depending on the game...."deep rums".?..I'll have one of those 
    • Friend also for sentimental reasons. I have a soft spot for Dijksteel  for reasons unbeknown to even myself and want him to do well. I really liked Ayala as I felt much more confident in our defence when he was a part of it but the way he departed left a bad taste. My favourite player growing up, despite my username, was actually Gianluca Festa. I like players who play in a way which shows that they care about this club as much as we fans do. Festa did that. There been more since him, George being one of them. His legs have gone but I know he gives a sh*t about this club just as much as the rest of us do.
