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.

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
