Boro V Blackpool (A)

Recommended Posts

I'm going to go with a 3-0 win for boro. If Blackpool sell Ince, they have practically nothing in the way of threatening attacking players. The only reason they aren't lower down the table is due to some flukey results earlier in the season. I will quite happily say they are the worst team I have seen at the riverside this year. I think with our new style of play, should we implement it (cause we ***ing well didn't against Hull!), we should find it easy to exploit their frailties.

 

I'd go with the following team:

 

---------------Given---------------

Varga----Omeruo--Ayala-----Friend-

------Whitehead----Leadbitter------

Adomah-------Ledesma------Carayol

----------------Juke----------------

 

I feel we need Juke in this one over Main, as he can win aerial battles and hold up the ball pretty well. I'd play Carayol and Adomah on the wings, as their speed can cause any defence trouble. Those two playing means we will be potent on the counter. I'd play Ledesma centrally because, although we have seen some steady performances from emnes of late, Ledesma has been brilliant for us recently. His passing is better and I think he could make us more dangerous if he replaced Emnes. Whitehead and Leadbitter are the two best options we have at the moment in the centre. I wouldn't risk returning Woody from injury in this game, I'd rather see Omeruo and Ayala start. They could be a formidable CB pairing. Varga should start at RB for me, as he has impressed and helped us look more solid in defence. Friend, well, he's been pretty decent recently, but it's not like we have any other options there! (Gibson at a push).

 

Think this should be a comfortable match for us, and hopefully will go similarly to how the Reading match went. I don't think Blackpool offer too much at all, and I can't see Ince being in a job much longer. I'm going to say goals will come from Juke, as he has to break his duck soon, Ledesma and Omeruo ;)

 

Good luck to the match and to everyone travelling over. Hope you all have a safe journey. Let's hope we can make this form count.

Blackpool will be without thomas Ince there danger man, I used to fear playing them under Holloway but I think with the way we have played lately we should go all out for the three points, I dont want to see a negative team line up from AK, time to play the wingers and go for it from the start.

 

is ince injured or is this about the transfer to swansea

 

transfer...he may be gone by the weekend or at least have a 'troublesome back injury'

we think we have turned the corner, they seem to be in free fall so in typical boro fashion we will loose 3-0 with a chopera hattrick

 

realistically we should beat them, they were awful when we played them earlier in the season(so were we though) would fancy adomah and carayol/ledesma to cause them alot of problems. keep it tight at the back, take our chances and it should be a good away day

I'm going to this one, my heart says we'll stuff them, my head is struggling to believe boro won't balls it up.

So I'm going for a bonkers 3-3, boro going in at 3-1 at halftime and Blackpool somehow scrape 2 goals in the last 25 seconds of the 12 minutes stoppage time the ref will inevitably add on

Aarfy and the Cesspool comment went down well...

 

Has their pitch got grass this year btw? If it is as bad as last years, we may not be able to play our way.

    • Yeah his first chance I gave him the benefit of the doubt, the lad's all left-foot clearly. I was more thinking of the one after. Maybe defender would have blocked the pass too but Wing was completely free in the middle waiting for it. But like you say, he's facing goal, if he wastes a pass everyone just complains that he didn't get his shot off so I can definitely understand why he has a go.
    • Haha i am saying 4pts as opposed to 3pts plus better goal difference because former brings more comfort. And right now that is in short supply as a boro fan. We need to turn up v Reading. They are now mathematically safe but it makes little difference as we just dont know which boro will turn up. So annoying.
    • ok look at this way, there are 6 teams below us, if they all play each other only 3 sides can pick up maximum points. if they dont play each other theres still the potential for all 6 teams to pick up maximum points.  my point about them being rubbish and picking up points still stands imo and is dosent matter that they play each other as i stated above, one team always loses out, or in a draw senario they both lose out. theres only 3 games left so with teams below us playing each other we state with certainty that they cant all pick up maximum points which has to work in favour.  agree one more win is needed, but look at other sides around and there form is worse, charlton no win in 4 lost 3 in a row,  stoke 1 win in 5 losing 3 and play forrest brentford and bristol in run in. Huddersfield no win in 3, havnt scored in any of those game and play sheff wed, wba and millwall in run in.   my ultimate point is there 6 teams below us and we just need to be better than 3 of them. and were in good postion with a 4 point gap on barnsley, 3 on luton and 2 on hull with better goal difference than all 3. also wigan look likley to get a 12 point deduction which send them bottom.   
    • So would I, if your trying to win a game you need a midfielder who isn't frightened to shoot or get in the box and that's Tav. 
    • The 92nd minute Hull winner is the kicker.
