Agree with almost all of this, but I would start Bola. He's another player who could be significant for us but is currently short of match fitness. Him, Ikpeazu, Crooks, Payero and Jones all need as much playing time as they can get, so they'd be nailed-on starters for me. Ditto Bamba, if he's actually eligible to play for us - a wise old head among the kids would be really beneficial (our squad's average age must be pretty low these days?)

Needs match fitness but we also don't want him too shattered for Bristol... I'd rest Bola for this one personally.

Introduction It's that time of the year again where I dust off my box of gifs and contribute my obligatory matchday thread before either losing or drawing and passing on the reigns to someone els

Was at the game, pretty abject all round. Lumley needs to settle and quickly, shaky. The young left back got absolutely roasted. Coburn?, looks a million miles short in terms of touch, awareness,

I wouldn't even let Tav get off the bus for this game, nevermind on the pitch. He's far too important to be used in this fixture. Save him for Bristol.

Aye, yesterday was a pretty intensive return to the pitch. Best off not pushing him in another competitive game too soon. Might be one of those to bring on if we're doing alright later in the game to get 20 minutes but given our lack of options there, I'd be preparing him for Bristol City.

I wonder if we sign a left back they will go straight into the team here. If Coulson is off, we may have one close, and it would be a good one to make a debut in. 

Otherwise we might play Jones as a wing back.

Either way, I think Bola should sit this one out.

I just want to see THE PHANTOM roam and scare the living daylight out of their defense! 
 



Lumley (for minutes)

Dijk, Bamba, Wood, Peltier
Crooks, Howson
Payero
Watmore, Uche, PHANTOM

Well we have had a few illusory footballers in the final 3rd these last 5 years, so the spectre of another shouldn’t be too startling for the fans

They were last season, and it's a mid-week match that's not on TV so they surely should be this season too.

I hope.

Was just about to come and ask this myself. Fingers crossed it's on, looking forward to watching Payero having an absolute stinker, scoring an own goal and getting sent off and everyone saying we wasted our money. Missing a good oneBoro meltdown.

Not overly fussed about this game beyond the ability to put fringe players into competitive games. Particularly these first couple of rounds in August whilst the transfer window is still open. Big one is on Saturday, I just want to get in the car and drive down the Riverside now!

Well you can if you wanted too but probably not much happening at the moment

Who knows, I might be able to pass on a couple of tissues to Messi as he has his look round the Riverside. From tears of despair to tears of joy. 😎

Who on here is heading down to the game? It'll be my first time to Bloomfield Road, so which pubs nearby are away friendly? 

I'm heading there after a days rest - on way back from London now. Knackered so a day chilling tomorrow.

I would try Daniels in goal, (keeper of the tournament last season) then he can quickly gel with the team. Lumley's had Pre Season, so lets have a look at what both players could provide.

A few of the others need to gain more match fitness and so playing time is essential.

                  Daniels

       Peltier   Bamba   Wood

Spence  Malley  Morsy  Jones

                  Payero

        Crooks     Watmore

    • John Ruddy been officially let go by Wolves it seems, I wouldn't be totally against him signing. Was always a Good Championship level keeper for both Wolves and Norwich. I read something regarding George Friend a few pages back the other day and I would be totally all for it, would add some great leadership and the fans would surely be right behind him still and as a left sided centre back I think he could do a real job for us even if just as a back up option. Also heard the Rhodes rumors and I personally believe he is a perfect Wilder Striker, such a hard worker and a great finisher. Which leads me to my final former Boro player, Ben Gibson. I again would love to see him return and think he could flourish in the left sided centre back role for Wilder's system. I do think the best options for those outside centre back roles are more suited to a full back converted/secondary centre back but at Sheff United Wilder didn't always have that option and was still greatly successful. If Fry was to leave Gibson would be great in the middle of the 3 of course.  
    • Very strange move, but apparently it's a three-year contract and for good money. He'll finish is career mid-table in the Championship.
    • Nothing mate. Just a hunch feeling. 
    • Heard something more or just speculating?
