There’s a lot to be concerned about for this game such as, will Bamba be able to play games that quickly back to back? 

Our strikers need to have clear cut chances, not aimless balls into the box or a hopeful corner either. Against Hull Connolly had one chance and scored (just offside) and that was the only clear cut one we got. 

I think Hudders will come here and play for a draw which we struggle to break down. We need a win and will get done on the counter. All that possession and we do nothing with it. 

Daniels

Dijk Bamba McNair 

Jones McGree Howson Tav Bola

Flo Sporar 

Crooks loves Prawn Cocktail, pass it on.

Scouting Report: Matt Crooks Scouting report completed. Boro V Huddersfield Town Monday 18th April Riverside Stadium Kick Off: 12:30pm (Live on Sky Sports Football)

I'm sure you'd be concerned if you asked your partner if they were cheating and/or leaving you and their response was "nobody knows what's around the corner for anybody, do they?"

I propose we call Connolly AC...since he seems to blow cold most of the time... 😁🥶

Neither Bamba or Hall could play the overlapping CB thing so I can't see Paddy moving. The other option is to go with a back four but Wilder is wedded to his back three system and I doubt he would make such a massive structural change to his defence in fear of the confusion and disarray it could cause especially against one of the Championship's better sides. We will, ageing, aching limbs permitting, likely see Bamba alongside Dijksteel and McNair. McGree will likely take over from Crooks with Boyd Munce stepping up to the bench. 

I will be surprised if we don't see Connolly starting because I get the impression that it's now become a bit of a prickly issue with Wilder as there doesn't appear to be a rational justification for it. There again Lumley eventually succumbed to the inevitable but it took repeated inexcusable failings for the axe to eventually fall.

Perhaps we need Connolly to score an own goal then😉

We are due a win been a while since we last gor a home win. Big crowd coming to The Riverside for this game of that I am certain plenty of forum members in attendance including CT with his large finger pointing foam Boro hands!

It is one of those games that really matters to the fans let's hope it really matters to the team and that they do stand up to be counted........................hmm seems familiar I wonder?

Not sure what to make of it we bloody well need to score though!

Wakawakawoo a whimpy Boro will not do!

At least Clean sheet will be well rested after the Bournemouth game.

I think we set up for a draw last game with us saving players for this game in balogun and Sporar. So hope it pays off as we do have to win all our home games to have a chance at the top 6

Yeah..  it's like calling McGree Skippy cause he is Australian ..  only Craig Johnston was the REAL Skippy 🙂  they tried it with Wilkshire, then Okon, surprised that they didn't with the Duke..  there must be an alternative ..  how about "Bouncer" or Bruce or Dingo..   anything but Skippy again and again and again... it's time for us to get inventive ..  think I will create a thread to come up  with better nicknames during the summer 🙂

We should call him Baba...as in Baba O'Riley. 😉

(one for the oldies and The Who fans out there)

I suppose Grimsby could have been crueller, it's marginally better than the Blessed virgin Connolly or Jaffa. There is of course a very simple solution and that is for Connolly to start scoring goals and to shut his detractors up.

Or just continue thinking he's rubbish without trying to push a crap nickname?

I suppose scoring goals was pushing it too far!

He was calling him it literally seconds after he scored against Birmingham, so that wouldn't do it either.

That was before the replays showing it might have been an own goal too.

You might be right mate I think he's equally wedded to a right footed midfield on the right, left on left though so could see Fry playing the LCB role with Bamba central

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
