Boro v Bournemouth 1-1 (Browne)

Recommended Posts

Only saw the second half as was driving back from the U.K. 

Thought we deserved at least the one point on the second half display - still lacking a few ideas but combativity was great.

This might be a turning point - once Chuba gets playing we’ll be a force to be reckoned with!

Good performance, a point is the least we deserved.

I'm normally defending him, but Johnson was shocking today, every delivery was a shocker.

Betinelli was excellent and very vocal throughout the match, it was funny hearing him screaming at the ref for his decision.

Dijksteel was great, happy to see him flourishing.

As Browne's biggest supporter, I was happy to see him grab the equaliser, though it's strange he's being played as a striker.

McNair played well and I was happy with Britt's performance even though the Bournemouth defenders got away with molesting him for most of the match.

A few more signings and we could be decent.

It was great being back in the stadium too, I've missed fans screaming abuse at the ref.

I was going to ask what it was like?  I remembered you had managed to get a ticket.

How did  the crowd sound on stream?

Was surprised how good the atmosphere was even with only 1000 in. Definitely gave energy to the lads.

I don't have my sound on but there were some audio issues with the stream apparently.

Would happily have taken a point from these opening two games plus we've sounded alright in the matches, hopefully we can start picking up a few wins now these two are out of the way!

Bettinelli 

Dijksteel Hall LCB

McNair Howson Morsy Coulson

CAM

Fletch Britt

That would be much better for me.

Tav/Browne in the 10 spot?

We need a Gaston/Tomlin type player in behind the strikers IMO. We just aren't creating enough chances, I think Tav is better playing without attacking responsibility.

Personally I think Akpom could be utilised in the #10 role.

Though if Fletcher is out for a few games I'd expect him to start up front alongside Britt.

If we did end up getting Woodrow he'd be a good fit behind the 2. He has some good passing percentages and obviously also has an eye for goal. But think that is out the question now, due to Akpom coming in.

Do think @DevKWat is right, we need a "specialist" number 10.

Woodrow was on the bench and never came on.

Think that's more indicative of Barnsley going down to 10 men, then 9 later on.

Considering it was only 1000 people, each sat 3 seats apart, the atmosphere was decent.

Saying that, could still hear every word from the players from where I was sat in the upper tier.

Only weird thing was going there in the car with someone, walking to the seats together and then having to split up.

But I'm used to fewer fans around me as a veteran of the north stand upper, haha.

    • Two scoring draws last term between the teams and always a close call before that. Forest you would expect to shrug off their poorish start and to progress, but they will also be desperate to start winning. However I would suspect Houghton will be content with a point at the Riverside but for Boro we need to start winning back to back games and I believe we will be too much for Forest and achieve a rare event of late. Maybe travelling teams will be showing a bit more respect towards us as a whole but I do think the game will be very different than seen against Coventry. Going for a home win though at start of season would have been ok with a draw  
    • Forest have so many attacking options, IF we win this it'll set a great marker for where we are heading.
    • I can see Spence dropping to the bench and one of bola or Johnson stepping in, with tav on the right. I assume that was the purpose of the subs the other night. roberts back to the bench as well perhaps.... if no akpom, I’m comfortable with Browne starting, he has done everything asked of him so far. Midfield and defence picks itself, barring injury 
    • So I've seen lots of highlights recently where both penalties and red cards were given, I thought they'd moved away from red cards if it was a penalty, or is it still a red card for being last man?
    • Hopefully Akpom is fit and if he is I would go to a 3.5.2. I would also bring Coulson in. I want him to succeed here and NW said he looked bright in training. Betti Dijk Fry Paddy Tav Howson Morsy Sav Coulson Britt Akpom I would love a win but i rate forest. Would not be too disappointed with a draw.
