Bristol City v Boro 0-1 (Saville)

Recommended Posts

If Britt isn't fit it will be interesting how NW sets us up. He clearly won't be going gung ho down at Ashton Gate and will look to keep things tight as he did against Reading and avoid being picked apart. Chuba as a lone Striker with Roberts and Tav out wide with four at the back?

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.

They can stream all games at the moment, can't they?   You just have to pay separately for the Saturday 3pm away games if you've got your code from a season card purchase.  I think that's how it works anyway.

Could always play Browne as well I suppose.

I wonder if there's any danger of the Cardiff game being postponed?

I'm sure it excluded matches shown on Sky too, but I'm not sure whether red button matches count

I think it's only the ones chosen for broadcast rather than red button games.

I was wondering about that, the Welsh lockdown is pretty severe.

Not certain, but think level of screening by club should mean it is likely to go ahead (although regulation interpretations may be subject to VAR)

Someone asked on twitter and the club replied that it will be shown on the clubs streaming platform too

Good bench mark game for Boro, at this time a point would be fine for me.

Get another clean sheet and we could surprise them with a goal not being deemed offside

Due to us only having 2 "fit" strikers available (if Britt isn't then it's 1), I think it'll be worth it if we change formation to only have 1 up top for the next few games.

Talking points

Disappointed no fans allowed in, as living in Plymouth this is the one game I could get to,But saying that Its also the one place I've been threatened, as I went into "The Robins" with a Boro shirt on(I didn't know it was the clubs watering hole before games),Their strips Red so it took a while for them to realise, when they did, it all kicked off,The landlord told me to leave,as I'd just got a pint I refused until it was gone,Left Brissle with a point to,Which I would settle for tonight

    • Oh dear mate. I have some bad news to tell you about Friend 🙁
    • With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With match fitness a question mark over both I would guess he would rather start with them and then plan to take them off when tiring rather than maybe having to put them on early as a Sub if an injury occurred. Warnock seems very protective of his players and the risk of them picking up injuries which is why I think he may start with Roberts and Watmore as it gives him more in-game control. The obvious choice would be if he started with those that finished on Wednesday night but I suspect he will want to keep morale high across the squad and keep faith in Watmore and Roberts knowing that he can fall back on Johnson and Spence. Whatever he goes with he has my confidence and trust which is something I don't think I have felt about a Boro Manager in a very long time.
    • I think its either Bettinelli's agent trying to rack up interest (which is his job in fairness)  or lazy journalism or more likely a combination of the two. Dimi had an incredible record here for clean sheets in a season but it was a similar story to now with the organisation of the defence resulting in the Keeper having little or nothing to do. No disrespect to Dimi but he was hardly the most athletic or agile Keeper I've ever seen in a Boro shirt, although no worse than the medal bedecked one who came in after him which proved how playing behind a good team can make a keeper look great. Most Keepers would do well behind the current Red barrier in front of them. Bettinelli's vocal skills does add to that sense of impenetrability probably as much if not more so than the actual amount of work he has to do keeping shots out. Decent keeper who I would prefer to stay but I would be more concerned about losing Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola, Friend, Howson etc.
    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
