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.

    • Warnock comes on here and reads the comments. Clearly he is very astute and so will have learned a few things from our observations and opinions and will react accordingly. 😁 The danger is if he makes too many change and upsets the balance of what he has achieved so far another defeat may start another run, but one which we would rather we didn't. 
    • In the old days a Chopper Harris or a Norman "bites yer legs" Hunter would sort the likes of Grealish out. Nowadays Football matches resemble pantomimes more than a Football match. I'm not advocating thuggery on the pitch but after a pathetic simulation like that you could guarantee a cynical, scything tackle incoming very soon, leaving him rolling around with something to cry about. It soon sorted out the men from the boys and Referees seemed to be less protective in those days and wanted to get on with it.  With all the camera angles backed up by VAR, robust challenges are penalised nowadays which is fair enough as we want to watch football not martial arts but as Old Codger says there should be punishment for that type of behaviour from Grealish. Infringements, be they offside's or cynical tackles are now immediately reviewed and punished, simulation should be dealt with just as swiftly. A sending off would be a just and effective deterrent.
    • I get the impression the Gazette think there will be changes for this game. Definitely Morsy, Akpom and Watmore. Suspect Wood will be in too. I'd not be surprised if Spence plays right back with Folarin in front of him.
    • I think you will find that Marvin is our top scorer, plus he doesn't take Penalties and has had less minutes on the pitch. His Stats below look a lot better too. Not bad for a makeshift Left Back come Winger.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/middlesbrough/top-scorers#:~:text= Rank , 0.40 6 more rows
    • Thanks for clearing that up Uwe. People complaining that he had dived and the whole time he had been shot by Chuck Norris 🙄 I hope that his accusers apologise 🤣🤣🤣
