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

    • Annoyingly it's a mix of both of those first sentences you've written. The Government have gotten as much right as they have wrong, and at the same time some portions of the public do need to shoulder some of the blame. It goes hand in hand.
    • 😬 I don't mean to tar you with a brush here AR but: a) NB4 hasn't said anything about being a Labour supporter (and in fact, just above has dismissed such thoughts) b) Discussing a frivolous spend on something unnecessary is not 'Labour-tinted' and only makes you sound like you take a tribal stance against a political party In my opinion, the repainted plane served no purpose whatsoever and it 100% was done to 'better represent us globally', so it is as NB4 said, it was ego-driven, to make us look good. There are plenty of better ways to represent yourself as a country globally than a repainted plane. It's neither left, right nor centre to say that £900k of paint was a dumb idea executed during a time people were sat at home living off state-funded furlough schemes, wondering whether they'll be let go at any point soon.
    • It’s ok, we haven’t finished discussing wingbacks yet👌
    • I’m certainly not knocking the government for the support schemes, I’ve benefitted myself from the self employed grant, I’m just hoping that it will be continued as I’ve done just eight days work since lockdown.    My argument is, if governments can find money to fight unnecessary wars (the two listed above in particular) it can find the resources to keep the economy going.  I’m neither a Tory or Labour voter, but I do think the Tories acted too slowly and that the Labour Party have been ineffective in opposition, although I think part of the reason for that is that Labour don’t want to oppose the measures too strongly for fear of splitting opinion and causing disruption amongst the general public.    As for football league clubs, it’s not their fault, but the fact that mediocre players are earning more in a week than the PM earns in a year does lead me to question the way clubs are run financially. In a lot of cases it’s all a massive gamble to get promoted and as my old man used to say if you gamble, you have to be prepared to lose. 
    • So its okay to spend a million quid on something completely non essential and ego driven in the middle of a global pandemic leading to a global economic crisis? And then call it dumb to criticise it?  To be honest I could spend all day listing the ways in which this government (which has been picked by boris on the basis of brexit support rather than any form of competence) has failed its people, but i learned a long time ago that facts mean nothing to people when it comes to this stuff, its all tribal.  For the record, I do not support Labour, or any British party. Id like us the hell out of the "Union". But thats a whole other topic that I'm really not getting into on a boro forum!
