Win win for boro tomorrow really IMO.

 

Hull are expected to win but if we get at them early on like we have in the last few games I can see us causing them a few problems.

 

If we win, fantastic. Can only build our confidence.

 

If we lose, no big deal we can just use it as a benchmark and learn for the future.

 

Either way I think it should be a good game and I'm going 2- 1 boro

I fancy us to beat Hull comfortably tomorrow, you would think our first team should have no problems against a second string Hull team

I think we'll pull of a win tomorrow also, just a narrow one though.

 

I'm annoyed that we can't get on TV even with a Cup game Grimbsy vs Huddersfield, Rochdale vs Leeds, and Macclesfield Town vs Sheffield Weds all on wiziwig.

inevitable that graham will score against us if he plays

The hull team doesn't particularly strike me as having that much more quality than ours really. Huddlestone has been fantastic this year and brucey will always set up his teams to be hard to beat.

Can't see past a boro win here. We have 7 days until the next league game so I think AK will fancy our chances against a prem team and send out a strong squad. Think the players will be up for it and a good FA Cup run would be nice. With a few lucky draws we could go a few rounds and get an attractive fixture and bank some money. Would be nice to get on tv too.

I always want to win but tbh I can live with it if we lose this one. Definitely all about then league this year.

 

It would be useful for a few players to build a bit more confidence. Main, Juke and Butterfield. That is the most useful thing that can happen today for me.

Just realised my tickets havent turned up yet :s

 

Ordered them on tuesday morning. The tinternet said if you ordered them before 4:30pm on the tuesday they'd be sent out in the post...

 

Anyone else order around this time, and any ideas what I do if they don't turn up??

 

I ordered mine on Tuesday afternoon and they arrived yesterday morning, surprised they arrived that quick. You might want to ring the ticket office tomorrow morning or go there yourself.

 

Cheers, yeah I'll probably have to give them a ring in the morning if the postie doesn't turn up early!

 

It's way easier to just use ticket fast and print them at home, saves them possibly not turning up

 

I wasn't given the option this time, usually there's a little drop down menu with the two options, but it wasnt there when I bought mine :s

Plus I do like to keep my old tickets as mementos, not quite the same keeping things you've printed off yourself :p

 

 

Turns out they're waiting at the ticket collection booth thing for me. Phew, I shall go to the (foot)ball after all!

 

Fancy both teams to score in this one. Might put a cheeky bet on that, along with my giant 12 team accy (sure to be let down by a giant killing...)

Do you think we could hit 20k for this game?

 

In a word, no.

Anyone sat in West Upper needs to keep an eye on Directors Box as Omeruo is supposedly going to be at the match.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
