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

Phew that's a relief I'd put it down to us just being *** on the day, but I'm on board I'll go with your explanation, makes me feel better anyway.

That smug little gobshite Branthwaite was smirking all the way off the pitch as Warnock spoke to him. Hope gets a lengthy retrospective ban.

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

After a great away win v Forest is it now time to have a visit by our old friends Daniel Ayala, Stewart Downing, Ainsley Pears and Tony Mowbray and the rest of Blackburn. Blackburns last outing w

Thought the game was today, not tomorrow. Who puts football on a Sunday?!

We played great against them first half last time out. Hopefully more of the same, but with a more deserved outcome this time. 

3-0 Boro. Watmore, Britt and Tav to score

He seems to rotate Britt and Akpom about each game, so even tho Britt has a good game devour him to be on the bench this time around

Interested to see how we'll cope with Armstrong, Dack and Elliott in the same side, they were heavily depleted last time. 

 

At least Ayala has taken January off again so it rules that particular "typical boro" moment out!

Still a chance of downing, Chapman and pears to score against us! If the Newport keeper can manage it...

Checked Facebook for the teams at 2pm, only to realise the game is tomorrow.... Gutted 

At least there's some uninspiring FA cup games on iPlayer to watch in the meantime....

I've just discovered I made the same mistake!  Slightly confused about what to do with my Saturday afternoon now. 😂

Chapman's gone on loan to Shrewsbury.

Downing hasn't left the bench in the last two matches and hasn't started all season.

We could well lose, but thankfully I doubt it will be because of a former player (excluding Mowbray).

    • The best way I can think of Tav is if he was as good at shooting as he thinks he must be then he would be a 20 goal a season midfielder. I wouldn't take him out of this team at all, he's far too good for us and this team, he contributes plenty more than just a daft shot here and there throughout a game. Decision making is the one thing, the only thing in my mind that holds him back from being ready for the top level.
    • I think Tav is what he is, a skilled footballer with good ball control but lacking a footballing brain which has held him back from making the next grade. He is useful and can beat defenders but you never get off your seat watching him and when he lines up to shoot nobody expects him to score indeed it's probably more a case of wondering just how far off target it's going to end up. For me the problem is supporters having unrealistic expectations from him. He's 22 years old, his "development" is behind him, at best he might hone what he has but I would be amazed if he suddenly became a world beater. He has reached his level, with maturity he may refine some flaws but his decision making is the weakest part of his game and if your head isn't telling you what you should do in the next phase of play at 22 then it isn't going to change anytime soon.  In short he is decent at this level, no more no less, with a tendency to believe his own hype which I suspect is one of the main drivers behind such poor decision making.    
    • I have a cousin called Ruaraidh (Rory), Gaelic names get proper wacky!
    • =6th on goals scored. Missed a week too! Somehow find myself just above the relegation zone!!    not going my way this season!!
    • I actually think he’s improved significantly since he was dropped for that one game a while back.
