Well, if it ain't broken, don't fix it! ;)

 

No need to go changing a winning (I mean losing) prediction... :D

Charlton are losing 2-0 at home to Oxford. Apparently Oxford are pressing them high up the pitch which they are struggling with. They should struggle with us pressing them on Saturday then.

Or they'll come out with a point to prove? I was at the valley earlier in the season and they aren't a bad side, just lacking a bit of creativity to unlock teams. Kermogant was half decent, but he might have just looked good in an average team

The first game was postponed so it will go to a replay if it's a draw at full time.

Thats how it ended but believe Oxford will have tested them and probably tired them out to a degree.

 

Good time to play them and maybe a defeat by Boro could result in another managerial dismissal.

I think people are going into this game a bit complacent. Who are we to underestimate any football team in this league up till 4/5 games ago we were just above the relegation zone & just because we are on a good run of form, people think we will get play offs. I'd be happy with a top 10 finish this season & if we exceed my expectations thats a bonus. But like Aitor keeps saying we need to keep our feet on the ground & work hard.

You are correct CR17 but for so long all we have had is a very negative aspet to all things Boro and this sudden rush of dare I say optimism is a new feeling that takes getting used to.it has been a rush and a buzz:)

3-0 Boro for me I'm not being disrespectful there are some very good reasons why Boro should get all 3 points quite comfortably.

 

1. Charlton haven't played alot in the last couple of weeks so their match sharpness won't be all that.

2. They got run ragged in the week so to come to a team who comes out the blocks quickly, presses high and is very pacey by 60 mins they'll be ***ed. Cue Lionel Muzzy :D

3. We are on a very good run of form.

4. This could be seen as a 'Typical Boro' game but most of us saw the Blackpool game as one of those and we did pretty well there.

5. Most importantly of all they're *** :P

 

So there you have my reasons for optimism.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now i've jinxed thoroughly it, watch us Balls it up. :dodgy:

Plenty of reasons to feel optimistic about this one. Boro are on a 5-game unbeaten run, at home against a struggling side, who have only won 2 of their last 10 games, drawn 4 and lost 4. Charlton are not exactly prolific in front of goal either, managing just 22 goals in 24 games, while conceding 30.

My Prediction: Boro 3 - 0 Charlton

 

Can't remember the last time I predicted a 3-0 win for the Boro! :s

kamara played and scored for the reserves today so he should be fit enough for a place at least on the bench

    • I have to go with my heart and say we're going to get beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat, beat...   A win here will put us right back on track for survival. QPR have very little to play for, so I'll go 2-1 Boro (as long as we don't have an American football game/ref again)
    • Well we managed against Stoke... 😉   Hmm. Guess my optimism isn't completely dead yet.
    • Questions Score predictions for this one? God I really don't know. I've given up trying to predict what Boro will do in any given game. QPR are on a bad run of form...but we're hardly on a good one. Like the Hull game I think it'll be a case of whoever is marginally less crap wins. Still have a flicker of hope so: Boro 1 - 0 QPR.   Lineups for the game?   Will Warnock keep us safe? Will he be here next year if he does? Too close to call. If he does manage to keep us up, I reckon he'll stay...as long as Gibson doesn't try to cut his salary in half, like he did with Pulis.   Do we even deserve to stay up if we rely on other teams being handed points deductions? Most definitely not.   Do you prefer to have your Saturday ruined or your Sunday ruined? Saturday - cos then I at least have Sunday to get over my disappointment...before I have to start thinking about work again.
    • I'd say a Barnsley win is the worst result. They're in the relegation zone and have a worse squad than Stoke, a loss stunts their momentum and keeps them in there. Stoke winning isn't ideal, but it's better than Barnsley winning.   We also want Brentford to beat Wigan.
    • Why? It's happened so we should count it. I fancy Wigan to beat our total even with the deduction, but it still needs to be accounted for.
