1. Team and formation?
Same as the last game, with Watmore the first name on the teamsheet.
2: Is it good to change a winning team?
I wouldn't say so, no. So much of football is about confidence, and a winning team develops trust in its component parts. Unless a player is suffering from a knock or fatigue, I'd never change a winning lineup.
3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?
4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?
While the transfer window is still open, yes. Expect a return to ballooning shots over the bar from the first of Fbruary.
5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far...
Not for the first time, Neil Warnock is getting the best out of a Boro player. I always wondered what the point of Saville was, but he's beginning to offer a worthwhile presence in the squad - belatedly, but still very welcome.
6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?
Def Leppard have done some good songs, and I respect them for what they are, but Maiden *** all over them. No Prayer For the Dying still sounds great 30 years on, and Maiden have inspired so many of the bands I love that they'll always have a special place in my heart. Though it's best to pretend the Blaze Bayley era never happened.
7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games?
Yes. We've been maddeningly inconsistent this season, but I think only Norwich are significantly better than us when we perform to anything like our full potential. It's a measure of the transformation Warnock has wrought on the likes of Bola, Saville and Dijksteel that I would be disappointed to miss out on the play-offs - though I accept it's a very real possibility.
8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?
Gawd knows, but I hope he has a brother we can also sign...
The fact they didn’t train is simply they hadn’t implanted a risk and migration. Lots of alternatives to train. We where not down to only 10 players as there were several who could have played. What it does highlight is that a sick player is better then those not in the team selection or sat on the bench. Hell if that’s the case we are dire trouble.
It matters not because the onus was on us which is what I’m implying and as I stated my opinion, we are a inconsistent team doing well.
