Looking forward to this now, hope we smash them. I'd like to see Britt on the scoresheet, Roberts start the match in close support and a few mins for Browne could be good too. 

Here's my masterpiece, just call me banksy

South Banksy surely?

No it’s not. Paraphrasing is stating a different meaning using the same words.

Yes it is.  Paraphrasing does not change the meaning.

I know. See my post earlier. I was battered and talking *** last night. Apologies!

Because of the weekends result v Blackburn, I get the feeling that some of us think this is going to be a "walkover"

I notice they have one guy back from suspension and one back from injury.  These are two of their top players, I'm told and should make them much more competitive.

I still think we should win but we should not be complacent - that is a silly way to lose

Not wishing to be too pedantic, but should the horizontal white chest band be horizontal when the player is too?  Too much of an artistic liberty for my sensibilities.

Not thread related but wonder who the u23 player is that warnock watched play against leeds and put got him training with the 1st team. Was on the transcript from the supporters club meeting if anyone had read it

For the first time this season, I think we'll win this one. Looking forward to a good result, and seeing the latest chapter in the (very) late flowering of George 'the best' Saville, the goal-getting midfield maestro who'd walk into any PL team.

Anyone else not fussed about Niasse turning us down? I’m not. Poor scoring record for years, wouldn’t come cheap and is potentially a bullet dodged. 
 

Time to get Burrell into the First team squad.

Just bang Saville up there, guy's on fire 🤷‍♂️ 

Hope we win tonight. Had a few good games sitting back and frustrating teams - be interesting to see what we can do against a side we should be expecting to beat. Really hope we see Roberts and Tav both start.

Think this will be a game were Coventry will try to frustrate us with 11 men behind the ball, they will be happy to play for the draw.

 

Would like us to go with a 4231 which will allow us to rest Saville and possibly McNair.

 

                           Bettinelli

Spence   Dijksteel/McNair        Fry     Bola

            Howson          Morsy

Tav            Roberts                Brown/Coulson

                      Akpom/Brit

Prediction

Boro 2-0 Coventry (Akpom, Saville)

Starting XI

I think we could see another run out for the 433 formation. Expect Roberts to start and possibly a return for Britt, most likely from the bench again. 

COME ON BORO!

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
