I am awful at crosswords.

My thoughts on game. I would take 2 draws against Bristol and Cardiff but 3 draws is only 3pts so if someone can guarantee me a win at one of next 2 games i would not be disheartened to lose other one. 4pts from 3 teams who started strongly is a decent return.

Team:. I can see a 3.5.1.1 formation with Spence returnung at RWB and Tav playing off Akpom. Dont think he will risk Britt.

I dont think he will start him. But i think he might come on for Tav. Feel one will set us up to be tight and compact with the chance to nick a goal at other end.

You fancy Roberts to start?

I dunno mate.  If Britt isn't available then I thought that might push Warnock into selecting him, with Tav staying at wing back.  We could change the shape and play both Roberts and Tavernier alongside Akpom of course, either both behind or out wide.

Oh no doubt 3 points guaranteed. Expect a early goal, attacking football, accurate passing, good possession and double figures for shots on target.

Anyone know if Warnock is giving a pre match media conference today? I assume if he does give one it will be today and not tomorrow given we will be travelling most of tomorrow.

Do Boro not sell single matchday passes? I see Bristol sell one for the game at 10 quid. A bit steep though.

Okay, I think we'll draw 1-1. I believe Warnock is very slowly turning a demoralised group of players into something more than the sum of their parts (a pretty low sum in the case of one or two players). We're not going to play exciting football, but I'm not sure we have done since Robbo's days in charge. Shame we have to play yet another in-form team tomorrow, though I acknowledge it's early in the season and the table hasn't really taken shape yet.

- What is your favourite puzzle?

'Puzzle' by Biffy Clyro. Though I am puzzled by the latest instalment in the Where's The Former Boro Manager saga. First Steve Agnew vanished without trace, apparently still at the club but beyond reach of the outside world. Now a Mr J Woodgate Esq has vanished in a similar manner. Could it be they're both chained up in a dungeon somewhere deep inside Rockliffe, lest they should escape and wreak more misery on the long-suffering public? Or will they emerge from a chrysalis in summer 2021, reborn as managerial butterflies who will form a 'dream team' to help us escape the gilded cage of the Championship and float into the flowerbeds of the Premier League?

For UK viewers they do; not sure about the overseas market. £10 is the set price though league wide.

Can the club actually stream this match with it being on Sky Red Button?

It's a joke that they don't allow pubs to show the red button games.

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
