Sunday 29th December 3pm Kick Off.

 

Venue The Riverside aka "The theatre of hopes rising"

 

The last league game of 2013 sees the arrival of the enigma that is also known as Reading FC to the land of all things bright and Boroful.

 

I really do not know what to expect of them because they are a real Jeckyl and Hyde team at the moment losing their last 2 games but sitting very comfortably at the top end of the league and in many fans view a certainty of getting promotion.

 

Simarly we have won 2 on the spin for the first time this season so what will be the outcome 3 out of 3 for Boro or 3 out of 3 for Reading? Odds on for a draw then ha ha!!

 

Slowly but surely Karanka's influence is beginning to show through to the fans (I am sure in training the players know far better) and I for one am no longer dreading the relegation battle.

 

Clearly there are still improvements needed but it seems we maybe getting better defencively and ok 2 clean sheets do help........and I hope to god we can still rely on Shay Givens influence for a while to come.

 

But we come to the last game of this disaster year with some renewed belief and this is echoed on the forum. I hope to goodness that maybe we see a return of posters for this match day thread because things are on the up and up and I feel we can finish with a roar and a fillet to the New Years game which I am confident I will be doing. Wow 4 matches on the bouce is it possible???

 

Who do we want to see as a starting 11 has Juke finally blown his chances and do we need to see the return of Carayol.

 

Has Ledesma guarenteed another start?

 

Come on guys and gals lets make this thread one of the best supported thread as we all follow the continuing story of the Karanka era!

 

Close game but a Boro win

Confidence is high. The players and fans fancy us to win and most importantly of all we have found luck, a formation and system that works and is yielding clean-sheets. That can only mean one thing!

 

2-1 Reading...

On the back of a few unlikely wins, I think we'll really go for this one with the confidence boost we've gained. The only change I would make to the team who performed heroically today would be Ayala for Gibson, and that's only if Ayala's injury keeps him sidelined. We were phenomenal today against the team who were top of the league going into the match.

 

3-0 Boro, Ledesma x2 and Juke to get a goal also!

Ledesma has to play!

 

If Carayol is back I'd quite like to see a front 4 of

 

Adomah----Ledesma-----Carayol

-----------Emnes--------------

 

but I'd like to see a lot of interchanging between the 4 of them since they can all do reasonably well in each position, all 4 are capable of goals too. I'd rather we had a reliable figure head to play in main striker position but for me this is the lesser of evils (out of Juke and Main).

Going for another 1-0 or 2-0 to the Boro. Winning three games in a row would be some turn around of fortunes. 2014 is already looking very promising, it can't get any worse than 2013 for the foreseeable...

Congratulations hflb! Do you fancy having more baby girls so we can keep winning please?!

As far as I know, each baby girl is only good for about 3 wins, so you best get cracking ;-)

    • We proper stitched up Browne and Coulson midweek like, feel for them.
    • I'd also expect the same team barring Morsy, which is kind of worrying. I feel like if Coulson was playing left wing back against Barnsley, he might have at least had a chance to show what he can do getting down the outside of people. He did still somehow manage it on the right hand side later on in the game so maybe he plays right in this game too? Seems a bit of a push. First goal in this game feels like it's gonna be massive. If we can somehow get it, we might be able to *** house it through the 90 minutes. If Bournemouth get it, I feel like they're gonna just pick us off one by one. If it was any other team playing these, I'd have it down as both teams to score. We have to show something significantly better than we did against Watford for that, though. 
    • Just in case anyone is interested Bray Wanderers are top of the first division in the league of Ireland after 12 games. The only team worth keeping an eye on after the mighty Boro of course 😃
    • H Blackburn Rovers v Wycombe Wanderers H Brentford v Huddersfield Town A Luton Town v Derby County H Middlesbrough v AFC Bournemouth H Norwich City v Preston North End A Nottingham Forest v Cardiff City D Reading v Barnsley A Rotherham United v Millwall D Sheffield Wednesday v Watford D Stoke City v Bristol City A Swansea City v Birmingham City
