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

Well thats a bit different - nice one BU!

 

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...

    • I suspect a lot of people, like me, are frustrated by the fact it's a fairly weak league this season, and we aren't far away from getting into the play-offs. I honestly believe if we added a creative ACM and a one-in-two-to-three striker, we'd finish top six. But as it is, we don't have the strength in depth to change things, and the likes of Wing are luxury players we can't afford to start with. Yesterday was a punch in the tits, but I suspect Warnock will have the players fully fired up midweek, and there were probably some extenuating circumstances yesterday. And if Watmore is even 70 per cent fit, he starts, simply because nobody else can give us that creative spark.
    • It’s disappointing knowing we probably aren’t going to ‘have a go’ in January. Obviously Covid circumstances make it a slightly easier pill to swallow but feel like there is a real opportunity to be taken this season. Financially, there’s some big hitters ahead of us but we’ve more than matched them in the games we’ve played against them.  We’ve got a good core and just need to add a bit of quality that will allow us to eliminate some of of our inconsistency.  No doubt having Fletcher back will help but that quality out wide I still think we miss and I still think we’re without genuine technical ability in midfield. Hourihane would give us exactly that so fingers crossed we can push through a loan deal.  Yesterday’s result was a really hard one to take and watch so I’m hoping Gibson will have seen what we all saw and is willing to put his hands in his pocket and give us a real chance of breaking into the top six and establishing ourselves. 
    • How did I forget Downing.  Woody is the proverbial bad penny isn’t he.
