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 this is going to be a quite open affair with us edging it, got a couple of quid on 3-2 boro at 28-1 :) so we'll prob loose badly

    • Anyone see Coventry beat QPR? I hope Mark Robin's keeps setting them up like he didn't in their League One campaign and the first 2 games this season. For those that may not be aware, Coventry set up with a midfield that resembles a square. They have two deep midfielders and two number 10s, so effectively a square of midfielders. They play 3 at the back, 2 wingbacks, the square or box midfield then 1 up top.
    • Fair enough and I do accept your point about experience 👍
    • True, a player is removed from the fee that is being paid for him. And it doesn't have a bearing on their on pitch performance. But it does go show our (MFC's) inefficiencies in the transfer market. Especially in our current climate, where we are clearly having to rein spending in. I did make the point about Johnson having more first team experience, so you'd expect him to be performing at a higher level than Spence.
    • 37% passing accuracy against Watford.  The only player worse than that on either side was Bettinelli.  No outfield player that started the game on either side had a lower accuracy than 54%.  Two subs - Wing (50%), Navarro (42.9%) had lower than that but still higher than Johnson.  It's just one stat of course but it's quite interesting.  Some of it is clearly because they are being told to just play it forward, and some of it is because of him crossing the ball, but it's not really good to have a player who gives the ball away almost two out of every three times that he has it.  Not making major or blatant mistakes shouldn't be confused for playing well.  It's also worth pointing out though that he isn't the only player not playing well.
    • Whatever any player costs a club is absolutely nothing to do with them and should not be used as a stick to beat them with. Make any other point you want Dan but the cost shouldn’t come into it
