You checked the date of the article?

Also should read Boro V Blackburn as we are the home team!

But if true @SmogDane the Rotherham m/d thread is yours to do.

Also AK is not our Manager

Well that was embarrassing!

People have done worse on here, like posting porn links. Though the photo of Aitor should have been a clue!

1: Team and formation? 

If we want consistency in performances & results, it starts with consistency of teams. Never  change a winning formula I say. Same as the Forest lineup, unless injuries / fatigue make changes necessary.

2: Is it good to change a winning team? 

See above answer.

3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy? 

Probably - cause refs are stupid. But Samwise doesn't help himself either. Is he one of those players who just isn't as effective if he doesn't "put himself about", as pundits like to say?

4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance? 

We have to hope so. Its the old cliché that goals breed confidence. Score one and more will follow...hopefully.

5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for...a goal contributor? 4 goals and 4 assists so far.

Is that what we bought him for? I always did wonder... Well, the more, the merrier as far as I'm concerned.

6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard? 

Both. Maiden have definitely been the more consistent and have more interesting songs (if you're a fan of history, warfare, mythology and the usual prog metal subjects). Leppard wrote too many ballads for my liking and chased commercial success, but also wrote some absolute belters.

Anyway, here are a couple of gratuitous videos:

 

 


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 this is what most of us are expecting. Personally I'm still worried that we're not consistent enough and could fall away, being typical Boro and losing games we should win. But would be happy to be proved wrong.

8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)? 

I'll leave this to the ITK faction. Your guess is as good as mine. 🤷‍♂️

Let's not go crazy, howson was man of the match more for his defensive performance, he made zero successful dribbles and his pass success rate was only 58%, only morsey and bettinelli had worse. Our players always get better when they're injured!

STATS mean nothing really. cant judge a player on stats. johnny is a key player for us and he also dribbled round a guy and played britt in for his goal, so if we are looking at stats i'd say that was not so defensive. as for the stupid pass completion stats. johnny plays the ball forward a lot so that stat is still a good stat.

Blimey, what a performance at Forest. We were exceptional.

However, Mogga will bring a different challenge. Blackburn will press high and run the channels. They also have quality too.

Undoubtedly a tough game, and too tough for the Boro. Defeat therefore is inevitable.

I'm going big with this one. It's a 3-1 away win.

Hopefully we play like we did last time vs Blackburn and batter them, only this time we actually score some of our chances please.

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!

I've put the Birmingham game down to covid & frozen training pitches, and was a blip, I hope I'm right

    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.

    • I don't know anywhere near enough about St Pauli or Bundesliga 2 to really say if it means anything, but I notice Stojanovic has only kept 1 clean sheet in his 8 games there, letting in 13 goals. In the same period Bettinelli has played 10 homes, kept 2 clean sheets, and let in 16. Fairly similar statistically, though I've not actually watched their games and I imagine Stojanovic made more saves in that period.
