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.

    • Nice to hear Wilder was complimentary of Leo in saying he has really taken to him. I know people might say people should have a a job on merit and not emotion but with Leo it seems he here on both counts.   I guess its nice knowing there someone in the set up who genuinely has the same passion and love for the club we fans do. And that he appreciated by the new boss as much as he is by us fans.
    • Well let’s hope the weather favours those making the journey and the predicted blank of snow holds off.  I can remember my early days pumped up full of beer travelling around the country to games in the back of freezing vans. The worst I remember was a crammed Luton huddled together in the compartment above the cab trying to stay alive. The spilt beer and urine had turned to ice sending everyone flying every time it stopped, took off or cornered. The only stops allowed were for petrol, or a pub so containers a pipe and funnel were essential equipment.  Although I did hire a new Ford Granda in 1980 for a 1 - 1 cup night match at Portsmouth. Terry Cochrane scored, latter we became good friends, but it was a toxic atmosphere and lost my bother who took off while being threatened. Drove around town until we found him being chased down the street by a few hundred agitated morons. Picked him up on the move but someone cracked the windscreen. I remember leaving work at lunch, drove down and back after the game and in to work next day. BORO mad back then.  
    • I didn't see the problem with it personally, whatever the rules actually are, I feel like it should be a goal. It's not a foul as its a challenge by his own player. It's not a head injury so it doesn't need immediate attention. And you're gonna have a hard time convincing me he's not making the most of that just to stop play anyway. Admittedly, he probably doesn't realise himself who's actually stood on his foot but note that by the time the shot hits the back of the net, there only seems to be one player who realises he's down and is asking for play to be stopped... the man who stood on his foot to begin with.
