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

Recommended Posts

So this is the predicted team from the other thread:

Stojanovic
Dijksteel Hall Fry
Spence Wing Howson Tav Johnson
Britt Fletch

This also lends itself to 4-4-2, with Johnson coming back and Tav taking a place out wide though I prefer the wing-back view of it.

I was going to pay the £10 to watch our first competitive match however just noticed the disclaimer warning it will actually only be from a single camera angle for this game only which might be a bit naff. 

You would think this would also be another valid reason to reduce the first ticket price down slightly.

Baffling really. The single camera streams are barely worth 2 quid. Such a poor experience.

£10 to watch a trainee cameraman’s footage from above the half way line Is outrageous.
 

If the club want people to pay a tenner a match they have to shoot the games multi camera and with replays. Even if they are only expecting 1,000 subscribers that’s 10 grand. You could easily cover the match and vision mix it live for £3,500! The club just don’t care about the fans.

It does say after this game it will be back to the 4 camera set-up like last season. Meby they couldn't get anyone to work late on a Friday...

'Please note that this match will be single camera coverage. All subsequent league matches this season will be four-camera coverage, as was the case for 2019/20.'

Or maybe they don't expect many people to bother watching a carabao cup first round game. Wonder if they just don't think this cup is worth the extra money to fund the 4 camera set up.

tbf could be right as it actually just confirms all subsequent league matches not any cup matches for the future.

You'd think that as it's the first game of the season they'd try to put out a quality product to entice people to come back... I mean first game of the season you've gotta expect quite a few takers, even if it is a cup match.

Or they could just offer the one camera stream at 3 pounds and have plenty of viewers. Why insist on charging the same amount for a vastly inferior product against a lower league team. Some of the decisions the clubs and the EFL take are mindblowingly stupid.

I would agree with you. But in a time of being absolutely starved of football in and this being Boro’s first game of a competitive season I would’ve thought that the club/EFL would’ve put more effort and importance in it

Yeah I was gonna say as pointed out before I don't think the club have much say in how much they charge. They could have decided to use the 4 camera set up even for the cup, but there must be a reason they're not bothering.

But then, this is Boro, so who knows.

Amazing they be using an apprentice camera guy on the halfway line.  Jeez you expect for £10 a whole pre match build up, bespoke in-game coverage not BBC Tees,  half time analysis, post match interviews.

    • Sadly Boro are not just relying on Barnsley losing more games than them, Bournemouth and Cardiff have to as well. Full marks to die-hard fans for optimism  but it looks like 8th at best. And for all Warnock's complaints, it is 46 games that will give us our final position. I can still remember his rant about Tevez and Mascerano's suspicious appearance for West Ham which sent Sheff Utd down. Seemingly nothing to do with Sheff Utd were there because they had been crap all season. 
    • Probably where my confusion lies as i recall he got praise for one season. Either way he can leave as I feel he is preventing the progress of Brynn by being 2nd or 3rd choice here.
    • Congrats to Rangers on winning the Scottish Premiership I know it’s a Micky mouse competition and just shows how easy Celtic have had it for 10 years 
    • He did get it in the season before, in League One, but he imploded at the end of the Championship play-off push season.
    • His career nosedived with some howlers down at the Den. In fairness he seemed to be doing OK and even became the Millwall Player of the year once but then hit some really bad form, became a liability and was dropped and never really recovered. His positioning became very suspect as well as coordination and flapping. I'm guessing the harder he tried the worse he became. It's possible that he may rebuild his confidence and now would be a good time to do it without crowds breathing down his neck and without pressure because lets face it the Play Offs are all but gone. We may as well see if there is something still there or if he is still as bad as the end of his time at Millwall. The constant changing of clubs since and his inability to get a regular start at any of them would indicate that he hasn't convinced several other Coaches and Managers.  Dimi didn't exactly impress when he signed but the rest became history so I guess no harm in giving him a try, if he is worse then it becomes an easy decision in the summer regarding the pair of them. https://newsatden.co.uk/71877-jordan-archer-leaving-millwall-plus-news-of-other-released-and-retained-list/
