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

    • Last I heard Maguire wasn't gonna make it. I just read he might not even play in any of the group games. Honestly, let's say we get through the group with aplomb, do you even bring him back in after that? Is he good enough to justify it? I guess it depends on the individual performances of Mings, White or Coady. It's quite hard to predict the first team for this game. Pickford, Walker, Stones, Rice and Kane are the only ones really that I'd be pretty convinced of.  The Independent has had a guess at what looks like a 4-2-3-1: Pickford Walker Stones Mings Shaw Rice Phillips Sterling Mount Grealish Kane
    • I'm so happy to read considered opinions on the subject, i must admit I've been lazy and only getting my boro chat from the Gazette website comments sections recently which are jam packed with very very dubious posts about politics and Marxism and subverting everything that is english by taking the knee.   I'm very interested to see what happens, if an england player scores then takes the knee. The perma outraged booing mob will be conflicted af and so I'm sure it's going to happen.    Reading comments here has restored my faith fair play to oneboro, I will not stray again...    living in NZ now so I'm excited about the euros, but not enough to watch at 1am with work in the morning!    in the past I was always excited, then we'd do rubbish, so I lost hope, then just fudge through the group stages and start to look up for it in the knockout phase getting me excited again only to crash out in controversial or underwhelming performance circumstances.   now it's fair to say I get more excited as the tournament wears on, always with a shield around my heart in case we get knocked out by a hand of god or uncounted goal that bounced a yard behind the line. we had a bit of luck in '66, but I think we've paid for it ever since.   a young squad with a lot of potential and a very intelligent manager, I'm hoping we put on a show for everyone.   UTB and come on england!
    • It's been all over the place since Eindhoven.
    • we realy don't know how the club operates behind the scene.    
    • im guessing you are trying the same tactic as me - end up at that bottom and then in the knockout stages swoop to eliminate a top seed!!!
