Would be buzzing with a point, they've managed to keep hold of some of their best players and there's always a "typical Boro" worry with Hugill and Gibbo playing for them. 

 

They have but they are also only three points ahead of us with them having had an easy start than we have arguably.  They've got a better squad than us I think it's fair to say that but a couple of seasons ago we had a better squad than most and it didn't help us much in the end.  I think we should be expecting something from this game.

Comes across as the sort of lad that when he sees a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel is convinced its on the front of an express train

My interpretation of the remark was that he expects defeat for Norwich.  As do so many of us...

This game may suit us sit back soak up all the pressure and bang nick a goal on the counter attack. Norwich scare me less than Brentford attacking wise and we shut them down kinda easily. So confident in another cleansheet just about us managing to score on a corner or swift counter.

Need to avoid giving away free kicks around the box, buendia has the best delivery in the league. Which means Johnson must not start!

There were a few notable absentees from the u23s yesterday (Wood, Folarin, Dodds and Brynn) so I wouldn't be surprised if some of them filled out the bench today.

With Walker and O'neill also out on loan, that makes the performance even more impressive... fingers crossed for future

    • I think people are giving Warnock the benefit of the doubt because he's done what no manager has done in the last decade and bring in quality wide options. Even Karanka, our best manager in that period, played Stuani out wide incessantly. Warnock has actually signed several players with genuine attacking promise, suggesting that the current tactic of hoof it to the (not very) big man up front may not be his long-term approach. Let's face it, Cardiff did more than hoof their way to promotion under him. With some time to bed in, a front four of Kebano, Bolassie, Watmore and Fletcher is mouthwatering, with the likes of NML and Johnson in reserve. The fact Britt and Akpom couldn't hit a cow's *** with a banjo is holding us back, but I don't believe Warnock would have signed the wide creative players he has if his sole tactic in the rest of his time at the Boro is going to involve asking a s**t keeper to hoof it. There has to be more in his long-term plan than that, otherwise he might as well do what Pulis did and play four central defenders and five defensive midfielders. Surely NW needs the summer to see what sort of tune he can wring from this promising (if currently under-delivering) squad? That's why I and probably others are cautiously optimistic about his contract extension.
    • Indeed he was in goal the very first time I watched a Boro game
    • Not sure why I thought you were then unless it was those things and I just assumed you must be.  Cheers anyway.
    • Before my time but heard lots about him.  RIP.
