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 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

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong, but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look stifled and devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward, the striker  with the best heading ability is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.  
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch, I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term and long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person. People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him “unprofessionally” upon leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
