cmon Boro, 3 in a row, can we start to believe if we win? would make Gibbo think hard about transfer options, if we were only 7 points behind the play offs, not a lot to make up over 23 games

I'm a major advocate of "if it ain't broke, i will kill you for changing it" keep same team, 2-0 winners, ledesma and ohhhhhh albert Adomah!!!

I'd like largely the same with except for Leabitter coming in for Smallwood. If Carayol is fit then keep him on the bench as an impact sub.

I think we can win this one, who wins in the championship is usually decided by form and momentum and we are definatly have more of those things than reading right now. However i cant see us keeping 3 consecutive clean sheets so im going for a 2-1 win with juke and carayol to score

 

Jutkiewicz

Adomah Emnes Ledesma

Leadbitter Smallwood

Friend Gibson Ayala Varga

Same team, only Leadbitter in. Either for Smallwood into CM, or instead of Emnes in a more advanced position in front of Smallwood and Whitehead. But preferably the former.

Boro last six games (W3, D1, L2) are exactly the same as Leicester city's last six... And we are 6th in the form table. The table is quite tight at the moment, if we win the next string of upcoming games and other results go our way then we could move further up the table sooner than we thought.

A win here would swing me into a very optimistic mood so here's hoping.

 

Hopefully we can play most of the same lineup again despite the short spell of rest and that's probably what will be key to winning the game.

 

Would like to see Emnes & Juke play better than they have done so far this season.

I think Emnes has done well this season. Especially under Karanka, he is the one player that other teams worry about (maybe Adomah as well) and is nearly always doubled up on by defenders. I just wish he'd be a bit more selfish and shoot more!!

I agree. Having him playing in the role behind a central striker gives teams a dilemma who to make their priority which gives our wingers the space to have an impact. We look a worse team when he isn't playing.

 

Technically Emnes is pretty similar to Ledesma. Both can dribble, good touch, good close control, ok pace, can pick a pass etc but the one thing that makes me prefer Ledesma is that he's fearless and isn't afraid to have a crack from 25 yards. Whereas emnes is the total opposite and looks like he has no faith in himself to shoot so always looks to pass to a teammate. It's clear that he's desperate for a goal to get his confidence going to be more brave as it's so frustrating to see him with such little faith in him scoring a goal. Hopefully a sitter presents itself for him tomorrow for him to slot in. :)

    • Sorry but this is such a naive perspective, BD. There is literally no one on this planet who has the authority to say that this virus is not dangerous in circumstances that literally involves close contact with other human beings. Nobody knows of a way to absolutely 100% not transmit the virus other than to literally not be next to people when you have it. Generally speaking, you have a point, I get that we can't just hide away in our homes forever. But the idea that there are circumstances in which people can be in physical contact with each other as they used to be and still be 100% safe really undermines where you're going with this. There are varying rates of risk and we can't move forward until everyone acknowledges that.
    • My hope is relegated clubs/those aiming for promotion might see Britt as a cheaper alternative to the other prolific strikers in this league. Dont want to start a debate on whether Britt is prolific but hope fellow board members get point am trying to make? He is viewed as one of the more established leading forwards at this level given he virtually guarantees you double figures each season at this level (bar this one) I imagine any offer of approx £4m+ gets you Britt..
    • I reckon the championship restart be a week later but the fixture schedule is gonna be ridiculous!
    • Or maybe there won’t be one. We can’t keep everything under lockdown until the virus is completely gone or there is a 100% cure. Obviously money is a question because a lot of jobs depend on the football industry but the professional sport itself is a very safe environment for everyone that’s in it.  The governments around Europe are simply starting various businesses up that is deemed safe and professional football behind closed doors isn’t dangerous in any way. 
    • I suspect much of  the league is going to be in a similar position. We're quite lucky to have so many players running out of contract just as this economic crash is coming. I can see most of the league desperately trying to cut their wage bills.  Biggest downside is no one will be willing to spend money on Britt.
