Get your thoughts in lads and lasses. Crunch game and three points would be an excellent start and settle some nerves. How will Woody line up. 4-2-3-1, 3-5-2 or a different option. It's going to be nervy but I somehow reckon we will scrape the three points home.

Steve Gibson needs to look himself in the mirror and question whether he’s letting his personal loyalty towards Woodgate cloud his, apparent, objective judgement of an absolutely incompetent manager.

I can see the argument for how they’ve played in training and for Woodgate basing their starting performances based on how they’ve played, but as we’ve seen that constant chopping and changes has yiel

Quick bit of maths  if you put £3 on at 91/1 means .... .... You lose £3

Glad to finally get the season going again. 

For some reason I'm confident we will pull off a win. No basis behind that at all. 🤣

 

Incidentally, I will be one of the few people actually attending the match in person. Will be a bit weird watching an important match in with nobody there!

I think this is gonna end up being a draw, or decided by the odd goal late on. My head says 3-2 to Swansea, my heart hopes for at least a point.

The last game we played, the team was:

Stojanovic

Howson Shotton Moukoudi Johnson

McNair Clayton Wing

Tav Gestede Coulson

I'm gonna take a swing and say Roberts will be in for Tav and Britt for Gestede, maybe Saville for Clayton too. I'd prefer Fletch up top personally but I think he might go with Britt. Maybe Friend for Johnson too, I think he might opt for the captain in the first game back to try and help the team through the game, especially with losing Ayala as VC for good, depends how fit he is.

Britt is our best striker, so it's going to be vital to get him firing asap. With Roberts, Coulson and Wing around him there will hopefully be enough movement to create som chances for him and not just punts up field that he'll eventually just lose and be isolated.

Buzzing for this now. How great would it be to get a win and look forward to the rest of this strange season.

Feel like we need the added safety of a couple of DMs, so I would go Clayton and Saville with Wing slightly more advanced:

---------------------Stojanovic----------------------

-Howson--Shotton--Moukoudi--Johnson-

-----------Clayton---Wing---Saville--------------

-----------Roberts---Britt---Coulson------------

I think we will line up 4.2.3.1

Stojanovic

Howson Moukoudi Fry Friend

Paddy Clayton

Roberts Wing Coulson

Britt

Think will end up 1-1 which would not be the worst result. Need 11pts imo so just need to chip away at that target.

I agree we need to get like 3-4 wins too stay up

I think this will be a draw, maybe 1-1 ad the players try to get used to playing with no fans.

I'd go for 3421

Stojanovic

Fry, Moukudi, Friend

Spence, McNair, Saville, Coulson

Roberts, Wing

Assombalonga

Big call to be dropping our most consistent performer in Howson @mj south

    • Do hope his training ground nickname is Willy Kok or I'll have lost all respect for our lads.
    • Scene 1: Int (Night) [It’s 3am in a kitchen lit by the glow of the moon. Neil Warnock walks in yawning, wearing Paddington Bear pyjamas and fluffy slippers. He opens the fridge and takes out a bottle of milk. When he shuts the door, a ghostly white apparition has appeared behind it] WARNOCK [dropping the milk]: Jesus Christ! APPARITION: Not quite. [The ghostly white features move closer] No use crying over it, though, eh? WARNOCK: G…Garry? APPARITION: Yes. It is me. Garry. WARNOCK [looking around wildly]: How the hell did you get into my kitchen? MONK: I go wherever I want, and nobody ever seems to stop me. I find it quite peculiar. Middlesbrough…Birmingham…Sheffield Wednesday…Sky…I have the ability to slither in without invitation and then hang around until the scales fall off people’s eyes and they see me for what I really am. WARNOCK [composing himself]: So why are you in my house, Friar Took-all-the-money? MONK: I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed watching the Rotherham game on Wednesday. WARNOCK: I bloody didn’t. I had to fill the bench with kids. They had an average age of 11. MONK: No, I didn’t enjoy watching Middlesbrough. I enjoyed watching Rotherham. I get a certain pleasure from watching teams getting relegated. I mean, I get a lot of pleasure. It gives me a semi-final feeling. WARNOCK: Well, you certainly gave relegation a good go with my lot. MONK: I did my best, but my plan didn’t work at Middlesbrough. I was hoping to bankrupt them, but Mr Gibson found a Post-It note with my calculations of how many strikers I needed to buy to guarantee liquidation. He made me leave before I could finish the job. I did hope Tony Bent would finish what I started, but he spent all the money on defenders so they ended up drawing every game 0-0. Even the village idiot couldn’t find his way to League One. And then you came along with your mid-table mediocrity. [Hisses] You hero. WARNOCK: Hero? We’re tenth. And we’re bloody broke, thanks to you. I only found Watmore cos he was working in the local Sainsbury's garage when I went to fill up the Montego. His signing-on fee was a Big Mac meal cos he hadn’t eaten for three days. MONK: You’re still not going to be relegated, though. Such a disappointment. But my greatest project is Sheffield Wednesday. I've really put them through it, haven't I? Oh, that's managers for you; they always know which buttons to press. WARNOCK: The self-destruct one in your case. I still can’t believe what a shambles you made of that transfer kitty. I’m having to let Fletcher and Assombalonga leave for free cos we can’t afford to pay them any more. We've even prised all the 50p pieces out of the electricity meter, and it's still not enough. MONK [runs his tongue over his teeth]: I did my best. In the end, I couldn’t get Boro relegated, but I sowed the seeds of the club's decline. They'd be established in the Premier League if I hadn't buggered up the finances so much. Which means you'd be a Premier League manager, instead of a Championship one again. It was all me, Neil. It’s always been me. The author of all your pain. Scene 2: Int (Night) [The Warnock marital bed. Mrs W is wearing a Bri-Nylon nightie and an eye mask, sitting up as her husband rolls around screaming] MRS W [shaking Warnock awake]: Neil? Neil? Wake up! WARNOCK [trembling]: Oh God, that was awful. MRS W: The James Bond dream again? WARNOCK: Yes. But this time, the baddy was a snake. MRS W [calmly]: Oh, it was Monk this time, was it? You really need to stop eating Stilton before bed. You know it gives you nightmares. WARNOCK [rubbing eyes]: I'll give you nightmares. Have you seen my injury list? [Ends]   Match details: It’s a 3pm kick-off on Saturday, at ‘fortress’ Riverside.   Form guide: We’re mired in mid-table mediocrity, but Wednesday may be about to follow Boro’s example of being relegated due to a points deduction. At least their descent will be less high-profile than their near neighbours United, who are about to follow Boro’s example of being relegated with less than 30 points.   View from the other side: No MDT from the familiar-looking Owlstalk forum yet, but there is a thread called “Colin loves us really”, which is worth a read.   Questions for the audience: 1.       Who makes your starting XI? 2.       Given Connor Malley’s man-of-the-match debut, which other youngsters would you like to see in the squad/team? 3.       If you could only choose one, would you prefer to see Wednesday or Derby go down?
    • Nah, you're thinking of that Reg Dwight fella. Mind you, when you're born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, Elton Hercules John is a big improvement. 😮

    • Same here. In fact from now on when I do score 0, I'll just pretend I forgot to predict.
