Boro vs Norwich 0-1

Recommended Posts

I did wonder last night if Folarin was going to be today's surprise.  I'm not really expecting to get him on the pitch but it will be encouraging for the lad. ( he wasn't in the match day squad for the u 23s yesterday)

What happened to Reading?! They were 2-0 up when I last looked. Lost 4-2!

Lovely day for it here!

Soon as they conceded the first goal  they fell apart

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. 

Our best 11? I’m not really sure how they are lining up? There seems to be a lot of defenders in there. Is it 5 at the back? In which case where is Johnson playing if Bola is left wing back. If it’s 4 at the back where is Spence playing? Doesn’t seem very balanced to me. Certainly nothing like our best 11. 
 

im guessing having looked some more it must be Johnson in the front 3 and Tav in the midfield 3 in a 4-3-3. Hard to see how it works any other way.

Spence and Johnson will be wingers, I feel.

Spence has spent most of his time as one under Warnock.

Yes that’s what I think too. Not really a great pair of wingers is it.

Spence is a winger under Warnock now. It's likely Spence & Johnson flanking the striker.

count how many times johnson loses possession today. he loves a bad pass and crap attempt at a through ball.

Feeling very nervous for some reason, even though I'm not overly concerned if we lose as long as we play okay.

Obviously I'd much prefer we won though.

Want to see a good performance from Marv today. A little worried that we will only see him and Spence defending against their full-backs, though. Need to catch them on the break if we can and Johnson at least has the pace to do that. Whether he has any of the other attributes is for him to prove once again.

Also, guaranteed Hugill goal.

I like to be positive.. So I would rather think Hugill misses a penna today, cause that was what made 80 % of his goals for us

Anyone think we will see NW use more than 2 subs today?

Five subs rule 

Roberts?

Will Watmore get a cameo?

    • 1: Team and formation? Same same. Can't change after such a showing. I'd like to see Tav central with Johnson on the wing but I can't drop any of Sav, Morsy and Howson after wednesday. 2: Is it good to change a winning team? Depends on circumstances but generally no. 3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy? Think he will give it a bit of a rest and avoid a card. 4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance? Yes. He'll bag a brace. 5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... It's certainly looking better now. 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard? Not even a contest. Maiden all the way. 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? I think we can, but I'm afraid we'll just miss out. 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)? No idea. But my guess is Kebano.
    • The preparation for a specific match is probably a bit more important than we think. That is also what separates the good managers from the bad. The ability to drill into the team how to beat an upcoming opponent. We were woefully prepared under Woodgate and that has changed dramatically under a more proven manager. Granted he also gets outsmarted or gets his tactics all wrong, but I'm not going to deny that a lack of proper preparation with the team had an adverse effect on how we dealt with Birmingham. It was a woeful performance though so I'm going to split it 50/50 between inconsitency and lack of preparation.
    • we are inconsistent but we have Big J back in midfield.  first game back and it was like he never went away motm by a mile. when some of the younger lads are struggling to pass 5 yards he gets the ball and slips his markers carries the ball miles, plays in key passes making it look easy. he surely has lifted squad coming back into the team.  results will improve now. wouldnt be surprised to go on another winning run now. think we'll beat norwich to. they rode their luck last time out. we'll have them this time. blackburn have fell away we can win that one to.
    • Need to get back to winning ways at home so massive game and certainly no sentiments for former Boro associates. We are hot and cold with results so need to be hot, hot, hot again!
