Blackburn v Middlesbrough 1-0


Recommended Posts

That certainly eased my mind a bit about mondays game. I appreciate that games in the championship go back and forth and you can't expect anything, but Blackburn certainly showed that they are not all that, and will also be without their main goalscorer, who has scored about half of their goals. The table is going to look great if we actually manage to beat them. Looking at the weekends fixture you'd expect Bournemouth and WBA to win and likely QPR too. Huddersfield play at Reading so big chance they'll win too. But ultimately all we can do is win our own games, and I'm quite confident for this game.

Negativity on here is terrible. Playing 2nd place in the division away from home. A tough stop start game. Missed a couple of really good chances which on another day could have won us the game. They

We've missed some golden late chances and not been at our best - but why there is so much negativity on here is beyond me. We're on a great run and playing an away fixture against an extremely tough s

Disappointing result and performance, but nights like last night are standard in the Championship - even for promotion candidates. Even during our promotion under Karanka we had many of these types of

I think we are well overdue a win against them they've been quite the bogey team for us in recent years.

I can see us possibly playing Balogun instead of Connelly but more or less the same team that started on Saturday. It would be nice to see Payero get 20+ minutes as well.

I'm going to go 2-1 Boro

Blackburn seemed to play 5-2-3 last night which was weird. Wilder and Knill watching on will either think we are going to fill our boots or it was a bad day at the office.

I think Jones and Balogan could tear their defence apart if they play like last night.

Mogga has a great record against us - I think he almost over compensates to prove he doesn't want us to win! Should be a humdinger with nigh on 3k Boro fans there.

Wonder if Ayala is looking forward to this game or will he do one of his annual unknown injury stunts to get out of playing?

Mind you not many ex team mates to play against is there?

Pretty much every time Ayala played for us, I felt we got away with a penalty decision. Let's hope Blackburn don't.

The same Blackburn that got away with a roundhouse against Dael Fry? 👀

    • 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?
