Boro vs Norwich 0-1

Recommended Posts

Nice one, love the price point being £19.86, lovely little touch.

Gonna be a tough game this, we don't usually come out of international breaks firing on all cylinders either so I reckon another draw at best.

Think that this is likeliest candidate for the end of the unbeaten run as they have a much stronger and deeper squad, so any point has to be regarded as a good point, Apart from Swansea, the rest of the matches this year are all games that are against teams that we should regard as being beatable more often than not, so would be happy with a draw and very pleased with a win. Key to this game is winning midfield battle, so unless Saville, Morsy and McNair are all unavailable, would save Roberts for Derby, as I think he could get a lot of openings against their defence. Possibly being a bit negative, but if NW sees him as a Gaston type (hopefully without the attitude), then he could really make a difference in next six weeks if used judiciously. Wing did look rusty for most of Brentford game, but seemed to find the pace towards the end and if needs be, is capable of putting boot in, so would keep team unchanged if possible. Gave up on the anagrams as the last two were far too difficult and my artistic skills are so poor, I would only attract knockers

A good challenge this. I really hope Paddy is 100% and Saville's family are all safe and well. Those 2 are huge for us.

If we want to go for the win, we need to find a way of Roberts playing. Warnock has had 2 weeks to figure it out. In the training video he is different class to anyone at finishing.

Early team guess:

         Bettinelli

Dijksteel Fry Hall Bola

Howson-Morsy-Saville

Roberts Akpom Coulson 

If McNair is fit I think he will come in for Coulson and we will go 5 at the back.

I think Hall plays if fit for his heading ability. I suspect he wasn't 💯 before he got injured. Pure guess work but he didn't play like someone at the top of his game.

I've got them all except Crash Loan and Allie A A Andy. So many A's, I feel like I should get this.

Never mind, got it! Just the first one now!

We are holding our own but not scoring goals and even the strongest castles are breached with prolonged assault. 
I'm doubting we can continue our current form and I believe it’s just a matter of time a team attacks from the off, scores and drops back knowing we will huff and puff but are hardly likely to knock in a goal or two. Counter and score another and do you believe we will or score twice in a game? 
I don’t care what many will state but we cannot really continue the way we are. 
 

Not that we will but what will change if we draw the next 8 games. Will we suddenly find a few strikers or sign a few that need time to imbed? 
 

Well for me it’s another game I’d be happy with a point because I can’t see us winning many games..

i dont think we are in a run of form yet. not by a mile. we might look like it from what we seen last year but i think that we have much more than we are showing so far. we are not making mistakes really except the final 3rd. which is why we are not losing. we'll start scoring and win 5 on the bounce or something at some point. that will put us in the auto mix. going to be a good season.

Have recently mentioned bench mark games and this is certainly one of those for Norwich if they have hopes of going back up at the first attempt.

Recent seasons have seen the points going to East Anglia we are due a win against them so going for a home win.

Our run will come to a stop otherwise

Being a home match, I'm hopeful Norwich will be a bit off their game, having to travel all the way from the sunny farmlands of Norfolk, all the way up to The Smog.

Boro do seem to be rapidly becoming the Championship's draw specialists. I'm guessing our defence will once again blunt their attack, but we'll struggle to break them down. I foresee another goalless draw on Saturday.

I don't mind if we just get a point off the other top teams, but we really need to start scoring and winning when we meet the teams lower down the league.

 

(Now I've said this, watch us beat Norwich)

I think Norwich arguably have the best squad in the league they is a reason they are the bookies favourites for promotion. Saying this they are very much like us are good defensively but struggle for goals. So is going to be another low scoring game that hopefully we nick with a 1-0 win get some revenge on that playoff final!

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
