Boro vs Norwich 0-1

Recommended Posts

Hoping to see a 3 up top with Roberts being one of them.

Watmore will be on the bench i imagine.

Have a hunch we'll see a back 5 today. Norwich are all about dominating possession and playing short passes. If we can compress the space, congest the midfield and press effectively, we'll disrupt their game plan.

Have a feeling it'll pan out a little like the Bristol City away game.

I've got a good feeling about this one. Might be unjustified.

Think this is the type of game where we do well.

I think we might go for

                     Bettanali

Spence. Dijksteel.  Fry.    McNair.    Bola

                Howson.        Saville

                                Tav

                   Akpom.      Britt

You mean we barely lay a glove on each other then get gifted a goal. I could live with that. Hopefully Gibbo gives us a penalty or two 😀

Quite happy with the starting 11, and we've got options on the bench should we need to change it. At some stage I'd like to see Roberts given a decent amount of pitch time.

Roberts for Johnson and for me that’s our best 11. Maybe morsey aswell, but the him and the 3 others in the middle have all been great this season.

Gibson and Hugill starting for Norwich.  You can just see a Gibson assist and Hugill goal coming.  Perhaps the memory of last year's goal will put Hugill off!

    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
    • That sounds about right to me, with my fag packet maths.
    • I think you need to double that amount to get it closer to our wage bill mate.  I'd be surprised if we already didn't have more than 4 players on more than £12k per week, not including someone like Assombalonga.  If you include the current loan players, I reckon there would be at least 10 or close to it already on our books - Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Fletcher, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts (for the first half of the season), Assombalonga.  I've left out Morsy but I bet he is somewhere near it as well.  Not sure about the lads who recently signed new deals, probably not at that level.  More than two of those will be above £20k as well.
