There'll be no three consecutive wins for Boro, 1-0 to Reading

 

...here's to me being wrong!

 

Don't quite understand the negativity there spirit. Reading have lost 3 of the last 4, low on confidence and not creating anywhere near enough chances (according to there fans) and slight mumblings calling for Adkins head.

Boro are the opposite. Should have a good bit of confidence, create loads of chances (need to start converting more I know) and are at home.

Do I think Boro are going to win the next 3 games in the bounce? No I don't, but with 2 in the bag and the performances to boot, can we win one at home? Definitely

Now bring em on!!!!!!!!

Maybe I've been supporting Middlesbrough too long, decent run, playing well, confidence high... typical Boro!

Given

Varga Woody Ayala(gibson if injured) Friend

Whitehead Leadbitter

Adomah Ledesma Carayol

Juke

Would love to see that front 4, ledesma playing balls through to muzzy and adomah, using there pace, and then big juke doing the dirty work and holding the ball up for runners.

Same back 4 as why change a defence that kept a clean sheet against the top of the league.

Whitehead and Leadbitter sitting infront of the back 4 protecting them but when in possesion they can move forward and turn the 4 up top into 5.

 

Going for a good 2-0!!! UTB!

The thing about that it would leave a bench of:

 

Steele-- Rhys W-- Gibbo-- Butterfield--Emnes-- Smallwood-- Main

Which by a long way isn't too shabby at all :)

THREE POINT DEDUCTION

 

Well maybe not. Bryan Robson is not their manager right?

 

It depends... Is the Charlton chairman on the committee that decides?

No one says it. It's just an unwritten rule :D

A very surprising last couple of results. Great to see. But I am still not convinced. This is Boro we are talking about.

 

I would be happy if we kept a clean sheet. It will be a major boost for the defense.

 

0-0

 

Hope We do manage to give them mauling though.

I think Karanka is now making a difference. We were saying a few weeks ago that we were concerned more about relegation - though we cannot take anything for granted, that is no longer the same degree of threat. We are looking better defensively and are letting form players win there place (Ledesma) and keeping a more stable side. We still have not sussesd out the Emnes/Butterfield quandary, as in truth both look better as impact players at the last 20 minutes over starting roles. I think Leadbitter may find his way into the starting 11, but unless we have injuries and suspensions that I have not researched adequately (or at all ;) ) then we start with the same team, but maybe Leadbitter in for Whitehead, as I'd give Smallwood an extended run. As was said earlier, Reading are no great shakes at the moment, more a side with potential where they have some very good players, but lack form. I see 2:1 to Boro, but will place my bet at a steady 1:1.

    • Really good idea, I’ll do some contacting and reaching out to some of these social media accounts. If anyone else has ideas or contacts as to how to grow the community, we’re open to ideas 👍
    • My point is that England didn't even look fully comfortable against an awful scratch Montenegro side. The defense has been carved apart repeatedly in these qualifiers, and I'm sure John Stones still has nightmares about throwing away that semi-final against the Netherlands. A lot of the trouble come from needlessly playing it out from the back and inviting pressure. England's attack has been fantastic for a while now, I've not said any different, 33 goals in 7 games is brilliant, but if anything they look less secure defensively since the World Cup. I'd back England against any team at the Euros, but they're currently never comfortable even with a solid lead. They were 5-1 up against Kosovo and were practically hanging on at the end.

    • This day 15th November 1994 - Boro's young guns go down to Ancona in this Anglo-Italian compatition Boro took the lead after 10 minutes then struggled to impose themselves on the game, the youth in the team v experience they were facing proved too much in the end, with Ancona levelling on the hour mark & scoring 2 late goals in the 80th & 90th to put the game beyond Boro
