Boro v Cardiff 1-1 (McNair)


Recommended Posts

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.

Hi all, Cardiff fan in peace always had a soft spot for Boro ever since seeing your support in Cardiff early doors in the FA cup in the 90's.     Anyway after reading some comments about it

Introduction  I don't know where to start with this thread,  our season appears to be in a state of flux and Boro fans are struggling to know how to feel  We could probably do with a ni

Better team, deserve to come away with something - their goal was very predictable.  Anyone saying Warnock out, ridiculous.

Anyway after reading some comments about it will be a walk in a park for Cardiff, I dont think it will be.  We are beginning to look tired, we are not used to the high press we are currently playing at the moment, if the scores are remaining level after 70 mins then I can see you sneaking something. You have a manager who knows how to grind out results in this division, so its not all doom and gloom for you.  

Anyway i hope we win on Saturday, but after that I hope you at least make the playoffs. 

 

All the best to you 👍

Good post, @BluebirdinExile. We do have a manager who knows how to grind out results, but the players don't seem to be following his instructions lately!

This is the sort of game that makes me glad I don't bet on results, because I have no idea what'll actually happen. We're hopelessly inconsistent atm.

It was the same with us at the end of his stint with us, players just didnt respond to him.  It didnt help matters when he said during the season that he was leaving, but if there is one manager who could get a club up its NW. 

Bolasie was a great signing for you, wish we went in for him. 

The premier league needs a team like boro. 

 

All the best mate 👍

Fletcher out for two to three weeks according to Warnock in his presser. Bolasie and Tav still not available.

I hope he goes with Watmore up front and not Britt or Akpom, they're both about as useful as inflatable dartboards.

Are we away from home? If so, we have a chance.

If we're at the Riverside, it's a 1-3 loss.

You're home but without fans its anyones game, if fans were allowed in and the support that you lot have, it would have been difficult for us. 

Like I said in my 1st post if its level after 70 mins, i fancy your chances especially with Watmore and fletcher doing well 👍

I think if you were in a swimming pool and drowning perhaps an inflatable Dartboard would be quite useful or if you were maybe packaging Great Aunt Agatha's priceless vase you could insert it around said vase and them semi inflate it to prevent it bouncing around the box in the post and getting smashed?

I'm sorry, I did think about Assombalonag and Akpom and can't come up with anything.

I did think about trying to come up with some genuine and sensible responses to BearSmog's questions in his excellent opening post.

 

But then I thought about it...

 

We're at home to a team that has won 5 on the bounce...

 

All that really needs to be said here is:

Nope, if we're at home it's a guaranteed loss. We're *** terrible at home.

Had hopes Bolasie and Tav were back on bench atleast. But think need Hall in defence to head due to Moore. We will do alright if we don't hoofball if line up like this have midgets up front against land of giants as Woodgate said they were on Wednesday night. We do stuggle against these sort of physical side aka Derby

Dijksteel Fry. Hall. Mcnair Bola

         Morsey.  Howson

Kebano.                              Johnson

                      Watmore

I think its going to take a different manager and squad to get us into the PL, but appreciate the good wishes anyway. 👍

Just checked the table today and only just noticed Cardiff in the play-off places. You seem to have kind of sneaked in under the radar! 😁 Anyway, best of luck staying there. I have a feeling we'll give you a hand on Saturday.

Yes thanks for your input however I think we will be getting back to you after the game with a resounding "we told you so"🙂

Need to have Johnson on the pitch from kick off and if there is a choice between Britt and Akpom I would prefer to have the better footballer sadly that player is not available either😉

Johnson's crosses will be headed away time after time with their defenders against our strikers. We need a bit more nous to get past them than our hit and hope game - and I don't think it's going to happen.

    • This is the side we deservedly beat Croatia with in November 2018, the last time we played them:     I'd say today's line-up is much better than that, even with the oddity of Trippier at left-back. The best Croatian players are all 3 years older and the wrong side of 30 since then too.
    • To be fair I think a lot of managers would be. It does seem typical of Southgate's "safety first" approach. Also, it is the first and toughest match of the group. I guess he just wants to make sure we don't concede a bunch of goals because our attacking players keep getting caught out. On the plus side, we do have a lot of firepower on the bench to call on. I really hope they see some action.  
    • I guess we'll see how it plays out and I could be wrong but Trippier at left back feels like a bloody idiot move. Why, we've got good players who can play in that position and keep the balance of the back line. We're not talking about Paulo Maldini or Javier Zanetti here, this is a lad who plays right back for his club and makes his name doing that. Southgate will live or die in this tournament based on his decisions and his insistence that good footballers will adapt to play for England in any number of positions regardless of where they play for club is looking like it could be top of that list. England has history for putting players onto the pitch because they're good and not for the betterment of the team and it ain't good.
    • Trippier at LB would be a shocking call to be fair, sure he won La Liga and kept Croatia's RB out of the Atleti team in the process but we have a LB who has just won the Champions League!!! Sterling over Rashford or Grealish as well is a big call he's been crap for the past year, Mings and Phillips I have no real issue with they've got pace and have had solid seasons.
