Didn't Swansea show that Roberts needs to play as much as possible...

If I was to guess a Warnock XI tomorrow I'd go with

                                                Stojanovic

          Shotton          Moukoudi          Fry          Friend

          Roberts          Howson          McNair      Coulson

                                  Fletcher          Britt

 

Set pieces and strikers scoring goals is what Warnock needs to keep us up Roberts/McNair goals would be bonuses if they come but we need to get it wide quickly and get balls in the box and hold a compact shape when we don't have the ball.

I'm feeling optimistic and for some reason think we will for once have a new manager bounce I'll go with a 2-1 Boro win.

Read an interview Richie Smallwood did with regards to Warnock and how he sets up his team at Rotherham, there he mainly deployed a 451 formation, concentrating on getting the ball down the wings quickly and getting crosses into the box to a target man or the midfield runners, so with that in mind I reckon the line up could be,

Stojanovic

Shotton, Moukoudi, Fry, Friend

Roberts, McNair, Howson, Saville, Coulson

Fletcher

 

BTW I know Gestede is more of a target man than Fletcher but I just can't bring myself to put him in the starting XI

Friend shouldn't play he was the pick of a bad bunch last week and he's well finished, I'd definitely have Roberts in the side only player who looked like doing anything against Swansea, and personally hope Nmecha never kicks a ball again for us, absolute garbage, the reincarnation of Ricketts.  

I seem to remember Ricketts crashing his Ferrari and having loads of McDonalds in it. 

Nmecha is pure dross. Part of me thinks his loan deal has a ~must play X number of minutes~ clause, it's the only explanation for his inclusion.

Interesting to see who will be potential injury risks, my team for a 442 Warnock system would be...

stoj 

shotton Moukoudi Fry Friend

roberts howson wing coulson 

Gestede Britt 

5 changes in the game:

shotton > Spence 

Coulson > Johnson 

gestede > Fletcher 

Howson > Clayton 

Wing > Saville

the boro to win 1-2

Britt and Roberts to score

Friend was responsible for all three goals Saturday. Playing him centrally could be disastrous.

I love George and everything he's done for the club but he's quickly becoming old yeller.

Looking forward to the game but I'm very worried about seeing another Pulis-like performance. I hope we do go for a win here, could be massive for us. I think it's probably gonna be a draw though, going 1-1.

Know what you mean but he did have our best two chances in the first half last week and maybe Warnock can get something more from him.

@wilsoncgp think we have to expect a Pulis type performance which I will accept if it gets what we need, certainly the Woodgate way was woefully worrysome!

Friend is our achilles heal now and we can not afford anymore mistakes.

Spot on comment about Roberts, so for me vital that we do score today and first.

Dont expect Shotton to feature.

Your statement based on what SP?

I listened to BBC Tees in midweek and a football correspondent from South Wales gave a good lowdown on Warnock's brand of football. 

He said he likes a forward with a physical presence, someone with a long throw, he gets the team well organised defensively and his teams are good on set pieces.

Asked about a comparison with Pulis's teams he said that Warnock will be more positive, his teams usually have lots of shots on goal and although his teams are built on being well organised he likes to have a maverick in his teams as well (Taarabt/ Tomlin) someone who can do something a bit out of the ordinary. 

Reading that makes me think we might see Shotton, Wing, McNair, Tavernier and Roberts in the team.

If that is the case, these last eight games might actually hold some entertainment value for once! Here's hoping...

Think we might win today. Warnock will be well up for this, and he'll be desperate to start with a win.

I think you will find like many others George is disheartened by the club itself and the idea of playing  now is worthless for his future.

He did¬† a great job on his day ."Love the old yeller comparison by the way".¬†ūüôā

    • Used to be a regular thing the oneBoro forum did and I am aware that FMTTM have beaten us to it and sponsored their first player this season. Would members be interested if we approached MFC to see which players are still available for shirt sponsorship? If so please indicate your interest and then the costs involved and players details will be published. I know Xmas is coming and a lot of personal finances may have changed for you recently. We will need a fair amount of member commitment to make this work. Thanks
    • Game day and as they say "Come on Boro" We all know how accomodating Boro can be when it comes to playing teams who are looking to stop a bad run, or need their first win like Hughton so this is a real test for us today to put an end to that sort of thing. NW seems to like opposition teams tiring themselves before we have a real push at them but it would be good to see us having the push sooner rather than later today. Be an interesting game to watch
    • Gazette reporting that Duncan Warmore has been training with the club to see if he can earn a contract¬†
    • I screwed up sorry about that OMG, I forgot to post my predictions.¬†ūüėĒ
    • At the minute I feel more confident that we wont lose, rather than we will win. I will be content with a draw but hope we win. If Chuba is fit I think he will come in for Roberts in a 352, but I dont think Warnock has got it wrong this season so will be happy with whatever he puts out. Really impressed with the drawings lads, honestly, without any description I knew it was Jepson, Albert and Juninho. 10/10 for JepsonūüĎć
