Middlesbrough v Hull City

I honestly thought/hoped that we would go on a winning run towards the end of the season and wouldn't have to author another matchday thread this season

Introduction

It was disappointing to come away from last nights match v Fulham without a (deserved) point..Disappointed Will Ferrell GIF by PeacockTV

..but in the grand scheme of things I personally didn't think we were going to get much from the best side in the division and was more than impressed with our 2nd half display..Han Solo Optimism GIF by Star Wars

But given the stage of the season we are at and the games coming thick and fast we have a chance to put that right against a struggling Hull City. The Tigers are languishing in 20th place after two defeats in a row (at home) against our promotion rivals Luton and Huddersfield rogue one GIF by Star Wars

Given our recent performances at the Riverside and Hull's general ambivalence towards getting results, this appears to be a great opportunity to get a win and get ourselves back into the play off spots?

Disappointing today, and another mark against Wilder in my book unfortunately.  Midweek was as well although I think he perhaps got more of a pass because of the opposition, and because we came close

You can tell from Howson's super secret pre-corner ball bounces what the routine is going to be...  1 bounce = hit the first man 2 bounces = straight to the keeper 3 bounces = out the f

First game in 3 years for me, haven't seen us win since 2015 so hopefully the curse has been lifted

I am sorry but I cant do GIFs so am sorry to ruin this my speaking in written English.

My team would be:

Lumley

Dijk Fry Paddy

Jones Crooks Howson Tav Bola

Coburn Flo

I imagine Connolly will start ahead of Coburn though.

If jones is not fit I would start with Dijk at RWB and play Peltier in the 3 man defence.

I am really nervous about this game but hope a early goal settles me. I will go with 3-1 to us.

    • What frustrated me about Jones was that with their LB on a Yellow we should have been getting Jones to push up and run at him but as good as McNair was for the build up to the goal I think Crooks was missed by Jones today. A few more cleverly weighted balls for him to run onto would have likely resulted in either a Red card or a few more opportunities for us and maybe some service for Forss. I can't say that Forss had a bad game because the poor lad needed something to work from and feed off and got zero service. What is becoming clear (like a few of us on here predicted) is that Akpom is very much a Wilder type Striker and a fish out of water under Warnock.  
    • Svend Larson and Akpom as our top two this season will be fine. Akpom doesn't half graft.
    • He's best in and around the box for sure. He's technically gifted & has a great eye for the pass but floats around defensively & goes missing a lot.  If we could play him as an out and out 10 I think he'd be way more successful. Someone else suggested it but Mowatt & Howson sat deeper with McGree as a 10 could be something worth trying
    • Cannot fault Akpom this season, he could have taken his poor treatment to heart and phoned it in, but his attitude has been spot on.
    • Were people happier with McGree moving further up the pitch today? I felt we looked good when he pushes higher up and we don’t have to rely on him to defend.    It’s a strange one with the formation as it has its plus points as seen with our first goal today, but then that’s it in terms of creativity. We rarely threaten in the centre. Hopefully with McGree being a bit more advanced it will help us a bit more in that regard.
