Ladies and Gentlemen - The football season is finaly back with the first league game for Boro, a televised Friday night game (7.45 weird English time) and we have  the habbit to play well on a Friday night!

Watford, newly relegated freom the Premier League, rumored to have trouble with some players in the dressing room, hopefully will have some trouble finding their feet in The Championship. 

It's a chance for the system of 3-5-2 with wingbacks to unfold and shine, as some people on here suggests, that system works best away from home. 

A good chance to get to the top of the league, but Watford might not have any of that .. 


Which team and formation should Neil Warnock pick?

What will the scoreline be and who scores if any? 

Will we have signed any new players before the game and will they be involved in the squad for this particular game?

Are you confident, that Warnock will get the maximum out of his players, and we can compete in this league? We were nearly relegated last season, but NW saved us, with an incredible away statistic for the 8 games he was manager in.


Feel free to post links for the game, so more people can watch it and talk about it..

UTB 

MDT 2/10

Going for a good performance but a 2-1 loss with a goal from Britt.

We'll concede to a corner and give away a penalty.

Apparently there’s a bit of unrest with the new manager at Watford already. Could work in our favour.

I’m going for a 1-1 draw with us scoring first and having to hang on for most of the second half.

Watford have a split dressing room. A few senior pros being considered toxic etc. I don’t think the Watford side will be players you expect, a few youngsters and fringe players. I’m going to assume they will press hard and early, but if we can hold out the first half we should have chances in the second.

That Watford team is great on paper, but might crumble from within over the course of the season.

😂 I genuinely think we'll get tanked! 

They've still got a lot of Premier league players while we are clearly short. People say its a good time to play them I actually think the opposite. 

It might be a closer game later in the season when they are weaker and we'll hopefully be stronger.

It is a good time to play them in some respects..they aren't coming into match after building a head of steam...they will have to adapt to Championship football again (and refereeing)....getting tough game out of way at start better than at end...they allegedly have issues, up to us to make a fight of it, but if nothing else, it won't lull people into a false idea of our chances, we know they should win, so let's try and make sure they don't...don't expect it to be pretty, but hopefully we will get stuck in and stop them playing their game...would be happy with a draw, so 1-1 ...Hall from a corner in dying minutes

Think the biggest worry will be if Sarr plays, because he should tear Johnson an absolute new one and I don't see Fry being much help next to him.

I'm hoping that our competitive "friendly" against Shrewsbury may have given us a slight edge in fitness over Watford but I'm only really clutching at straws... hoping for a draw here. I think with the uncertainty surrounding Watford and their players that it might be the best time to play them.

On Sarr I agree that he is someone to be feared but he's massively inconsistent, he scored more than half his goals in one game against Liverpool.

This image is going to give me nightmares for the rest of the week, hadn't even considered that match up!

    • I am going to have a different attitude this season. I am going to support and get behind the squad that NW puts out on the pitch each and every game until that  player(s) shows that they should not be anywhere near the ground let alone the team. We all saw a good improvement on Saturday last and there is still plenty of games to go for further improvement. Heck I even believe that LW might kick a ball straight eventually😃
    • Terrific thanks Mark always knew that our Jen would make the right impression about the forum. Big thanks to Jen from all of us X Not meaning to be pedantic Mark but our "logo" is oneBoro😉
    • Yeah I’d agree with that. Obviously opposing teams will know what he’s about now too. Coulson on the other side showed he can be a threat last season but looks like he’s got serious work to do to get in over Marvin. We were in for a left back though so maybe can’t rule one out yet 🤞🏻
    • Think Spence's problem is he's getting the Traore treatment for us  The one where he's the only player in the entire squad who can run at defenders with the ball otherwise we have to try comatose their team with our sideways non-threatening passing from Howson to Saville to Howson to Saville and then back to the CBs so every single one of our dier attacks must go through him, then he has to get back and defend as well Must be burnt out a bit trying to carry every attack for a team at 19/20 years old     
    • I’m a fan of Spence. He’s raw as stated but you can see the potential. He’s also only going to improve the defensive side of his game under Warnock, unlike that clown Woodgate who also dropped him for some reason. A bit of patience would be nice but not something Boro fans have in abundance. In games where you need to be more defensive you’d maybe take him out for Dijksteel but he’s one of only a couple of players who will carry the ball for us and is quick and in a team that’s already bereft of creativity you need that. We got him on a free, he’s young, he’s English and he’s the type of player we should be going for to hopefully improve and sell on for a decent fee. In an ideal world he’d be back up to someone more senior whilst getting some minutes but here we are.
