Come on guys, you're not doing very well at the puzzles!

Didn't want to spoil it for everyone else, but I spotted seven words in the grid - which is a very good one, by the way:

Warnock
Sessegnon
Ashton Gate
Red Faction
Tavernier
Bola
Dean Holden

I also reckon the ball is in in square A3, and our player is blithely charging towards the City goal without realising it's behind him. It seems like a fitting metaphor for the last few years.

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

 

Checking back we have a very good history in this fixture

Got Bausor fairly easily in addition to others, but then thought other words could be in Welsh or Polish, so left it to experts....Robins play open game, so any result possible, but think we could sneak it if we can avoid conceding early...going for a 0-1 goalfest with a new name on scoresheet

Word Search

Top to Bottom: Warnock, Red Faction, Tavernier

Bottom to Top: Sessegnon, Ashton Gate, Bola

Right to Left: Dean Holden, Bausor

Diagonal: Akpom

2 Across: Cotterill

4 Across: Robson

5 Across: Coulson

1 Down: Robins

3 Down: Lansdown

 

Spot the Ball

Given where the goalie's looking, (and how our player is smiling), I'm gonna go with L3.

 

On to the game: I think we can expect a repeat of the Reading game. Very tough, probably very few chances at either end. Its either gonna be another 0-0, or Bristol will sneak a 1-0 win.

Dammit, I missed Bausor off my list. Makes a change from him missing transfer targets off his list, I suppose...

Cracking OP! I’m saying the ball is K3. Judging by the keepers face, there’s three balls in that square...

Don’t know why, but I predicted 0-3 to us on the super6... The more I think about it, the less optimistic I get. So I’ve stopped thinking about it.

There's at least one more you're both missing for sure.

Looking forward to this game, don't know why but looking forward to it.

Guess I just like going through the ups and downs of following Boro!

Hopefully our mini run continues

We are not nor have been recognized as a goal scoring team and I don’t see where a goal will come from. I don’t know much about our club or team anymore and I wouldn’t  guess as to what will happen game to game. It could  be a tight game, boring or we could get a hammering who knows...

    • 1: Team and formation? Same same. Can't change after such a showing. I'd like to see Tav central with Johnson on the wing but I can't drop any of Sav, Morsy and Howson after wednesday. 2: Is it good to change a winning team? Depends on circumstances but generally no. 3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy? Think he will give it a bit of a rest and avoid a card. 4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance? Yes. He'll bag a brace. 5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... It's certainly looking better now. 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard? Not even a contest. Maiden all the way. 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? I think we can, but I'm afraid we'll just miss out. 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)? No idea. But my guess is Kebano.
    • The preparation for a specific match is probably a bit more important than we think. That is also what separates the good managers from the bad. The ability to drill into the team how to beat an upcoming opponent. We were woefully prepared under Woodgate and that has changed dramatically under a more proven manager. Granted he also gets outsmarted or gets his tactics all wrong, but I'm not going to deny that a lack of proper preparation with the team had an adverse effect on how we dealt with Birmingham. It was a woeful performance though so I'm going to split it 50/50 between inconsitency and lack of preparation.
    • we are inconsistent but we have Big J back in midfield.  first game back and it was like he never went away motm by a mile. when some of the younger lads are struggling to pass 5 yards he gets the ball and slips his markers carries the ball miles, plays in key passes making it look easy. he surely has lifted squad coming back into the team.  results will improve now. wouldnt be surprised to go on another winning run now. think we'll beat norwich to. they rode their luck last time out. we'll have them this time. blackburn have fell away we can win that one to.
    • Need to get back to winning ways at home so massive game and certainly no sentiments for former Boro associates. We are hot and cold with results so need to be hot, hot, hot again!
