I presume that Spence won’t be able to play in this game as he is on loan from us?

I thought that only applied in cup ties (for some weird reason) or that it would have to be a condition of the loan agreement? 🤷‍♂️

But I'm sure there's people that know this stuff better than me...

In any case, I don't think Spence will need to spill much. If Hughton's had his scouts watching us, he should have a fair idea what to expect.

I thought it was a league rule that prevented players playing against their own club while on loan. But like yourself I’m not certain of it

Will NW see this as a "must win" game due to the current state of Forest or will he settle for a point?

 

I can only echo what others have said, I doubt he sees any game as a must win. He sets us up in a very non attacking formation. That it invites pressure on our already shaky defence. We have zero pace in our back three so if we are up against pacey forwards we get caught out. 

 

Will he set up the team to score goals?

I hope so, but as above it seems like we try to hang on in the game and try and pinch a winner towards the end, that is if we are still in it by then. In his interview before the game he said he now had options on the bench to change the game, but against Coventry his changes came too late. 

What is your preferred starting X1?

                             lumley

Dijk             Fry             Hall            Bola

                  Payero         Siliki

Tav                 Hernandez               Jones

                             Sporar

Will Payero get some game time? (unless still classed as injured)

unlikely, poor lad..

 

Is Jones a bit too selfish in his play?

I don't see it, he needs to be a little bit in order to have the confidence to beat his man, he does try and cross, and also try to score too. 

Who is the current Sherrif of Nottingham?

Pass

Who is your Maid Marion?

See image below, no idea who she is though..

Will you grab some food at Friar Tuck's?

Nope, nearest I got to that is Tuck box near to the office..

They've said he's ineligible to play against us on the club site article about players out on loan.

I think you have to specifically insert a clause preventing a player being available against his parent club, unless I'm wrong, because I'm sure Coutinho played against Barcelona whilst on loan from them at Bayern as they'd forgot to mention that.

Might be automatic domestically though.

According to sentence in loan performances on MFC site, Djed not eligible to play, so at least we are spared what would have been inevitable... We proved last season that we play better against them when we are proactive rather than reactive and their defence has more holes than ours, so see no reason why we can't get a result. They have some good players but if we can get in front, then it is pretty certain their heads will go down. According to McCarthy and Brian Laws, they were out-muscled, so if Neil had someone there, then you can guarantee that will have been noted. traditionally we struggle against struggling teams, but for whatever reason, I think we are going to get a result

We've had a poor run, but Forest have been surprisingly awful. We can't do our usual of letting teams get back to winning ways against us.

I'd like to see us move to a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-3-3. Warnock has said in previous interviews that his preferred formation is 4-3-3, so I'm not sure why he seems so averse to it at the minute. I'd go with:

---------------------Lumley--------------

--Dijksteel--Fry-Mcnair--Bola--

--------- Howson------Siliki----------

----Tav------Crooks---Hernandez--

---------------------Sporar------------------

 

Didn't sound like Payero would be fit for this game listening to Warnock after his conspiracy injury.

I think its because we don't have a fit LB at the moment...unless Bola is ready to return.

We are exactly the team forest need to play at this moment. Tempted to lump on them.

I can't see us losing this.  I know that's usually the kiss of death with Boro, but even with the start we've made this season, we are still a better side than them.  BoroBoy says banker draw, and I can see where he's coming from, but unless our confidence is shot to pieces already, then I think we can win this.  It might not be pretty or convincing mind.

That needs to change especially if you have been in a Green King pub are you in the south by any chance, maybe I could encourage you to attend an away match

I live in Carlisle, which is about as far from the south as it's possible to get! Would love to go to an away game one day; I've been to around 30 stadiums as a ground-hopper, and always happy to add another one to the list...

I honestly can't see where we will get the next win from.

The lack of cover on the left makes releasing Marv even more ridiculous. However the most frustrating thing is that we look to have a decent team, at least from an attacking perspective.

This is the first of 5 games for me with the Warnock lifeline. 3 wins minimum required. Failure to get that and we might as well focus on where we want to go next season, now.

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
