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 Jepson👍

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.

I think they will go at us down both flanks. If we can defend both wings well it will go some way to us getting a positive result today

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.

    • No idea on team today due to possibility of Tav being injured. A free hit really for us. My best guess.             Bettinneli Dijksteel                    Bola          Hall Fry McNair          Howson Saville Kebano.    Bolasie.    NML
    • Funny you should say that, the latest rumours in the papers are that FIFA are wanting to introduce "robot linesman" for the World Cup next year. Not sure how well it would actually function, but linesman are being made gradually obsolete.
    • The sooner VAR is scrapped the better as far as I’m concerned, it’s absolutely ruining the flow of games, players score but have to wait until they are told the goal was allowed and the decisions are all just as contentious as those that used to be given, pre VAR. I hate the new fad for linesmen not flagging offsides, someone is going to get seriously injured playing on, when the flag should have been raised, there is barely any point having referee’s assistants any more.   I can understand the idea of VAR for clear and obvious errors, but that’s not how it’s being used, the remote ref is pretty much doing the on pitch officials jobs for them and don’t get me started on those marginal off side calls. It’s obvious to any one who has played football that the momentum of the forward will cause them to lean towards the goal, whilst conversely the defender will be leaning forwards the other way. Offside should be judged on where players feet are and nothing else and that can be done by the linesman without the need for VAR.
