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!

    • Really? That makes no sense at all. As far as I have read all countries have been put into different tiers and players are awarded points according to league, international games, caps etc. It doesn't matter if you are EU or non-EU.
    • Does anyone else think we will struggle to get any players from the Premier League on loan?  I think the managers might look at the Roberts situation and think that their player might get more game time elsewhere.. just a thought. 
    • Every football manager players eyes light up as they furiously scout South American regens.
    • Tav's injury has probably heightened the need for some creative flair needing to be added to the squad. Am I the only one that is wondering if it's the boots that Tav is wearing that is causing him to slip? The Ground staff didn't have a normal summer to reseed or relay the pitch or whatever they normally do but lets face it the Riverside pitch is still light years ahead of many if not most at this level. I didn't see Spurs or Man City players slipping any more than their lesser opponents in the cup. Come to think of it I didn't notice Blackburn players slipping much either. He seems to be wearing these laceless Mutator Predator boots (happy to be corrected) if my eyesight is not deceiving me. Are they also the same boots that Marcus Browne was wearing? If so that is two players down due to footwear as much as the state of the pitch. About time NW issued them with good old fashioned brown boots as I used to call them with real "men's" studs! Meanwhile we are now scouring for loans and additional wages that the Club can ill afford.
    • The new work permit rules will make it harder to sign European players but it will now be easier to sign players from outside the EU.
