Boro V Bolton (A) 2-2

Recommended Posts

I'm in the clean sheet brigade. A solid defense gives our midfield confidence to get forward.

We might nick a goal but I would be content with 0-0.

 

However. I do wonder if the financial problems Bolton are facing could have an impact on the game? Will the players up a gear to try and catch the eye of a prem team? Or will it have them worried about their future?

There could be a few goals out there if either are the case.

My hope for todays game apart from a Boro win is that we see this thread heavily populated later on and that we get a decent amount of posts and contributions.

 

As it stands this will not reach the last 2 totals and they were well below par.

 

Find it strange seeing as how we are picking up and far less to moan about lol!

 

I'm all for contributing but don't get to any games.... Seems pointless in some ways..

I'm hesitantly confident about this. I'm hoping for another clean sheet, but can see it being a close 1-1 or maybe someone edges it 2-1 I've a feeling Varga will get a goal :)


alright maybe not Varga then lots of changes in this team today

 

Given,

Williams, Gibson, Ayala, Friend

Smally LEadbitter

Adomah Butterfield Carayol

Main

 

is the team I think

Given. Williams, Ayala, Gibson, Friend. Smallwood, Leadbitter. Adomah, Butterfield, Carayol. Main.

 

Juke, Emnes, Varga, Ledesma on bench.

 

My question is why?

Karanka may be resting them, and if things turn a bit sour then Emnes, Juke and Ledesma would be fantastic impact subs.

+ Also away from home, the pace of Main and Carayol on the counter is a lot better than that of Juke and Ledesma.

What the.. let's hope this works out for Karanka because it's a massive gamble.

Absolutely WHY? Varga has been outstanding by all accounts. And Ledesma surely warrants a start over Carayol?

    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
    • None at all, at a guess, if he's expecting a big contract.
