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).

Didn't know that about Chapman. When be lit up the kids European tournament and scored that worldie against Torino (I think it was) I thought he was gonna be the next big thing. Pity it's never happened for him.

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

Cheers NB, I wasn't worried about the match until I saw this!

Article in our local paper where the blackburn local reporter has given a lowdown on the ex boro lads.

said its been injury after injury for Ayala and to give a player with his injury record a 3yr deal is “baffling”.

Said Pears has really struggled as well when given opportunity. His highlight being keeping a clean sheet v us but in the other games he has looked vulnerable.

Downing is only one who gets a positive review but that his experience and natural talent does still show in games.

I hadn't realised how few Championship matches there are this weekend, only 4 of the 12 fixtures.

Be good if we can get points on the board tomorrow.

Possibly FA cup fixtures..

Dont think so. It's freezing, but no precipitation forecast.

No idea but we had a decent flurry down here in Huntingdon...sadly the ground was still wet from all the recent rain and it was gone after a few hours.

Seem to have had a bit more overnight, but only patches.

 

Wouldn't have thought snow would be a problem for Boro, as they have pitch covers and undersoil heating, don't they?

Or am I going completely insane?

C'mon Boro! 

The game at their place earlier in the season we were far the better team & should have won comfortably, hopefully we put our chances away this afternoon if they come our way & put more pressure on the playoff teams

I love a good Sunday game. Usually easier to find the time to watch it. This one is on tv too so hoping for a better showing than last weekend.

I think we have very much missed Howson as by him being in midfield it gives Tav opportunity to free roam more with watmore and britt.

Just seen on twitter that our last draw was 14 games ago against Brentford. At the start of the season we seemed to draw every match

No snow but it's bloody freezing here in Hartlepool!

I was going to say something about anatomical hazards for brass monkeys, but when I saw you were in Hartlepool, I changed my mind, so I will just agree there is a nip in the air

Plenty of snow down my neck of the woods. Normally it goes straight over us, it's been a good few years since we got this much snow.

    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56291850 Am I reading this right in understanding that it only applies to attack and not defence..  or is it just unclear wording?  
    • They're the runners, still think he wants the big lump up top to win the aerials for them to play off. Be surprised if we weren't still playing a very direct style, hopefully just more effectively with an actual targetman.
    • Old school Keeper with a real character. Legs like matchsticks but agile and really good at this level until Jim Platt came along in the early seventies to win the shirt from him. As with Downsouth he was the regular Boro Goalie when I first started watching the Boro at Ayresome Park. RIP.
    • Used to wind up the opposition by lighting a Woodbine if he was having a quiet game...  ran across him a few times when I used to go to away games ..  had a "colourful" vocabulary, but always happy to mix with fans and got pleasure from the number of people that acknowledged him.
    • I think people are giving Warnock the benefit of the doubt because he's done what no manager has done in the last decade and bring in quality wide options. Even Karanka, our best manager in that period, played Stuani out wide incessantly. Warnock has actually signed several players with genuine attacking promise, suggesting that the current tactic of hoof it to the (not very) big man up front may not be his long-term approach. Let's face it, Cardiff did more than hoof their way to promotion under him. With some time to bed in, a front four of Kebano, Bolassie, Watmore and Fletcher is mouthwatering, with the likes of NML and Johnson in reserve. The fact Britt and Akpom couldn't hit a cow's *** with a banjo is holding us back, but I don't believe Warnock would have signed the wide creative players he has if his sole tactic in the rest of his time at the Boro is going to involve asking a s**t keeper to hoof it. There has to be more in his long-term plan than that, otherwise he might as well do what Pulis did and play four central defenders and five defensive midfielders. Surely NW needs the summer to see what sort of tune he can wring from this promising (if currently under-delivering) squad? That's why I and probably others are cautiously optimistic about his contract extension.
