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.

    • No idea on team today due to possibility of Tav being injured. A free hit really for us. My best guess.             Bettinneli Dijksteel                    Bola          Hall Fry McNair          Howson Saville Kebano.    Bolasie.    NML
    • Funny you should say that, the latest rumours in the papers are that FIFA are wanting to introduce "robot linesman" for the World Cup next year. Not sure how well it would actually function, but linesman are being made gradually obsolete.
    • The sooner VAR is scrapped the better as far as I’m concerned, it’s absolutely ruining the flow of games, players score but have to wait until they are told the goal was allowed and the decisions are all just as contentious as those that used to be given, pre VAR. I hate the new fad for linesmen not flagging offsides, someone is going to get seriously injured playing on, when the flag should have been raised, there is barely any point having referee’s assistants any more.   I can understand the idea of VAR for clear and obvious errors, but that’s not how it’s being used, the remote ref is pretty much doing the on pitch officials jobs for them and don’t get me started on those marginal off side calls. It’s obvious to any one who has played football that the momentum of the forward will cause them to lean towards the goal, whilst conversely the defender will be leaning forwards the other way. Offside should be judged on where players feet are and nothing else and that can be done by the linesman without the need for VAR.
