Interestingly most of their fans think the 2nd XI will beat us comfortably, hopefully old potato face thinks this as well and they fall victim to the old FA cup upset cliche.

It wouldn't even be an upset, not much difference in terms of quality between the two sides okay they are in good form but we shouldn't fear them.

Not much difference? Almost every one of their squad would walk into our first 11!

Given I'll give you (although debatable because McGregor is a good keeper too), but Livermore, Huddlestone, Koren and Brady are all much better CMs than Leadbitter. Adomah, a case can be made, but they have decent premier level wingers whereas he is untested at that level.

Haha, I would say that about 11 of our players would walk into our first 11 :p

Haha you know what I meant, they'd walk in Hull's team

"Can't wait for the trip to Middlesbrough on Saturday. Would love a cup run. Would happily take relegation for the FA Cup #hcafc #FACup"

 

WOW :/

Tom Huddlestone has had his hair cut... So this'll be his first match where he doesn't look like a human sheep :P

Good opportunity to field some fringe players here, a win would be nice but doesn't really matter. I would go:

 

Jutkiewicz

Carayol Butterfield Williams

Morris Leadbitter

Friend Hines Williams Richardson

Dimi

Huddlestone is on the verge of walking into the England team. Leadbitter could barely point to England on a map.....

No, I totally disagree, Tim. Let's play our strongest side and give those tigers a good mauling, if they are cocky enough to play a reserve side, we should show them that we mean business. Our next match isn't for another week....let's win this!

Karanka said the game is a bonus and not a distraction and he will be playing a strong side.

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
