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

Nmecha is unreal on football manager and they never get it wrong so I'm gonna say he gets a hat trick today. 

Probably gonna get a bit of flack for that starting lineup but remember an awful lot of the choices are going to be based on fitness and training over the last 3 weeks  which none of us are privy to - so let's just see how it plays out.

What an underwhelming team, all the videos on the Facebook page have been of Britt and Fletch working together as a partnership and they're both benched. Can only think he's wanting to play on the counter using the pacey lads off gestede. With a view to bringing on the other lads when we're chasing the game.

What is it with Boro - why are we always unable to make use of potent goalscorers. Either misplay them, don't use them or just outright destroy them. I'm losing count now of the amount of strikers that we've signed boasting stellar records who've either not hit the heights they're capable of, or we've let go and have gone on to excel elsehwere. Madness.

I'd say that's more of a 4-2-3-1 with Wing playing more of an advanced role behind Gestede.

Happy to see Gestede start as he was playing well before lockdown and hopefully continues with that.

That starting line up's formation can change in lots of different ways throughout the game, so that's my thinking of why Woody has chosen that team.

Not the team I would of liked to see, but fitness levels etc has probably come into it.

What? Seriously? 

How can he start absolute rubbish like Nmecha, Gestede, Friend and Shotton when he has people like Roberts, Tav, Fletcher, Spence, Morrison and Assombalonga on the bench?

Absolutely astounding!

    • 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!!!
