Boro v Nottingham Forest 1-0 (Johnson)


Recommended Posts

At the minute I feel more confident that we wont lose, rather than we will win. I will be content with a draw but hope we win. If Chuba is fit I think he will come in for Roberts in a 352, but I dont think Warnock has got it wrong this season so will be happy with whatever he puts out.

Really impressed with the drawings lads, honestly, without any description I knew it was Jepson, Albert and Juninho. 10/10 for JepsonūüĎć

My doodle entry. As Anglian says, hard to get any kind of control with the mouse!

Played 9, conceded 5 goals, the same as the much vaunted Watford Premiership defence. After last seasons abysmal showing then step forward Neil Warnock and his coaches, what a turnaround, take a bow,

One very special moment (This time I didn't cheat)

Game day and as they say "Come on Boro"

We all know how accomodating Boro can be when it comes to playing teams who are looking to stop a bad run, or need their first win like Hughton so this is a real test for us today to put an end to that sort of thing.

NW seems to like opposition teams tiring themselves before we have a real push at them but it would be good to see us having the push sooner rather than later today.

Be an interesting game to watch

Really tough game today against a team that will come out and attack us from the start. 

I would happily take a draw now and like always I'd play the same team that started against Coventry as I don't believe in rotating a winning side providing everyone is fit.

UTB 1-1 for me

How refreshing it would be if the opposite was the case

I was reading through the forest forum and they reckon that they never turn up in the first half of games and that’s what’s costing them. Not sure about them attacking us from the off like. I reckon it will be rinse and repeat. We will take the midfield and the other team will resort. Go long or pass it about their back line over and over without getting anywhere. I fancy us. 2-0 boro

Win and we're in the top 6, and only 6 points off the top.

Still very early days, but that would be great.

Could even conceivably be second at the end of the day, but I think I'd sooner Bournemouth beat Derby for the lols.

Feeling fairly optimistic we can win this...though it almost certainly won't be pretty.

Boro unbeaten in their last 5 games (W D W D W) and Forest unbeaten in their last 4 (W D D D). We've drawn 4 - they've drawn 3...so a point apiece is also very much on the cards.

I really can't make my mind up. Would still be happy with a point, but reckon this could pan out very similar to the Coventry game (who incidentally are proving what a topsy turvy league this is, after beating Reading for their first win of the season).

Couldn't agree more mate, but I just don't think have enough attacking options to do that, whereas Forest front men and wingers are a real danger.

Lolley is one of the best wingers in the league imo.

    • I don't think either of them is in any way better than our level either. They're good for a top half championship side but they wouldn't see a minute in the premier league. Maybe in a few years Time, but for now definitely not
    • MFC v QPR, Friday 17th April 2021 Kick Off: 12.30 Location: The Cellnet Riverside Stadium "Tenth versus Eleventh... Will we see a major swapping of places in the league?" This Saturday, an¬†early kick off sees the showcases a dramatic limp towards the end of the season for two teams that may have harboured promotion hopes at the start of the season. The kick off time was rescheduled following the sudden¬†death of Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh so as not to clash with his funeral. There really isn't a great deal to play for, for either side in this one. We could swap places in the league. We could try and get some winning momentum to take into next season. We could play some of the kids, see if they are any good. To me, this season now¬†feels a bit like the last few weeks at school before the summer holidays. You've already had your report, the weather is getting better and it doesn't really matter what you do now as it's not going to make much difference. Fresh start next year! Fry and Tavernier are still unavailable for this one. Assombalonga's brief cameo at Bournemouth probably didn't do him any favours for the rest of the season or next. It looks likely that we might see Josh Coburn given some game time before the end of the season. He's a striker and looking like he might be a good one for the future, may as well see what¬†he can do now!¬† No doubting that our woefully inept loanee keeper will be given another chance to demonstrate his lack of ability. He reminds me of an outfield player who has had to play in goal because the proper keeper got sent off or injured during the game. I keep find myself thinking "a real keeper would've done better..." a lot.¬† VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE A quick look and I¬†found this¬†here. Basically of the same opinion as most of us. Nothing to play for. Give the reserves a chance. etc. etc. FOOT IN BOTH CAMPS Give us a goal John O'Rourke played for the hoops after leaving Boro in the 70's Mickel Beck joined QPR on loan¬†from Derby after leaving Boro in the 90's Warnock saved from relegation then guided QPR to the Premiership in the 00's. TALKING POINTS Meh...
    • Ah got you! Yeah in terms of players we have signed post-relegation, I don't think there has been any.¬† You could argue the likes of Dijksteel and Bola would potentially go to clubs further up the chain than us. If they did you could have them as examples, but that is all hypothetical at the moment.
    • Adama was also brought in when we were playing at a higher level, whether he was ready for that or not. He was brought in to play at that level. The reality is he wasn't ready for it and Pulis made it so that he was, for sure. But it's not like we spent a less than significant sum on a player whilst we were in this division¬†and made them better. Braithwaite has the trajectory, but as you say he didn't get his move to the Spanish top flight because of his development here, it was for the same quality and expectation we had of him when we brought him here.
    • I did mean our second relegation! But Adama is the best/only recent example that fits the bill imo. It's not good.
