Boro v Shrewsbury (EFL CUP) 4-3 (Johnson Fletcher(2) Tavernier)r


Recommended Posts

Hello children, gather round the fireplace (not the place on fire that is our recruitment department) and let me tell you a story of pride and glory!
Back in 03/04 my darling, Boro won the Cup of Carling!
Now the (tin)cup has a new name, but Papa still got a brand new pigbag
 


Listen to that tune to get in the right mood, to watch our team fight good!



This Friday at 5.30 Shrewsbury from League One, will guest The Riverside where you can hear no song...



Which team and formation?
Will we sign anymore players before kick off? (lol)
Will Changing Times continue his nice boy streak?
Can we win?
How far can we go in this cup?

Insert more questions here!

Looking into ways to share my stream, private youtube might be the way to go. 

Lets put this into perspective after todays results. These championship teams lost to lower league teams: QPR (to Plymouth) Birmingham (to Cambridge) Huddersfield (to Rochdale) Swansea

Question: Why is the H in Hello in bold?

It’s probably some kind of masonic Viking ritual bringing all sorts of bad luck on the first person to notice it 😱

I imagine that SmogDane was the first to notice it.  Let's all wish him good luck with whatever ill fortune is about to come his way 🥓

Stoj

Dijksteel Wood Hall Coulson

Wing Howson Browne

Tav

Fletch Britt

In terms o formation that cud be a 4.3.3 with Tav n Fletch either side of Britt or a 4.2.3.1 with Wing n Howson sitting and Tav Fletch n Browne behind Britt.

Wood: I feel with fry not match fit this a good game for him to start. He 18 now and been around first team for 2yrs. Lets see how he does v mid table league 1 opposition. If he as good as we are led to believe he should do well.

no Howson?

I'd be starting him in the league matches, the cups are probably the only game that Wing will start unless he makes a big impression.

Wouldn't be surprised if Fletcher was benched and Howson played the holding role though.

This is essentially another friendly, our players have probably got very low match practise- we need to be playing our best team or well have no chance of hitting the ground running next week. Suggesting resting players a week before the season starts is madness imo.

    • Arsenal scored before the ref blew the whistle, it's his responsibility to manage the game. He clearly wanted to stop it, as he indicated no goal to Smith-Rowe as soon as the ball went in to the net.  However the quick shot beat the refs decision and reaction time, therefore it's a goal. Based on the rules you can't blame anyone in this situation.   
    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play.
