To be fair ever since a lot of industry came shuddering to a halt on Teesside, Middlesbrough has been in decline. Don't see how it bears any relevance to the match on Saturday. If they have to resort to slagging off our town it's a good thing as it means they've not got anything to say about our football club!


Very good article, good to hear the players saying good things about AK as well.

IMO Hopefully our new loanees dont just walk into the team, we've been doing well and I think to drop anyone would be harsh (possibly with the exception of emnes) and would probably send the wrong message. I think AK did this with omeruo for Blackpool game and i think its the right way to go about it, make them work hard to break into this winning team.


Have both on the bench and give them a chance to impress should the opportunity present itself.


So similar team to Blackpool, possibly switch ledesma inside and bring carayol back in.


Can't see past a boro win (never thought I'd say that) so we'll probably lose..... ;)


Stuff that!!! 3-0 boro. Adomah, Ayala, emnes (finally)

Northern Echo's predicted teams for tomorrow




Boro subs: Konstantopoulos, Gibson, Main, Butterfield, Kamara, Woodgate, Chalobah.


Charlton subs: Alnwick (gk), Evina, Dervite, Hughes, Green, Harriott, Pigott.


Prediction: 1-0


The one player missing from the squad which stands out is Emnes anyone know if he's injured or just dropped?

Haven't changed my mind about the team, despite the new signings.


Given, Varga, Ayala, Williams, Friend, Leadbitter, Whitehead, Adomah, Ledesma, Carayol, Jutkiewicz.


It would be harsh to drop any of them in my opinion, apart from Juke that is, but he's better then Main and I still don't want Kamara rushed back.

    • If that was the case, every keeper out there would just feign death and fall over whenever the ball was anywhere near their goal and every game would end 0-0 for all eternity.
    • Nice to hear Wilder was complimentary of Leo in saying he has really taken to him. I know people might say people should have a a job on merit and not emotion but with Leo it seems he here on both counts.   I guess its nice knowing there someone in the set up who genuinely has the same passion and love for the club we fans do. And that he appreciated by the new boss as much as he is by us fans.
    • Well let’s hope the weather favours those making the journey and the predicted blank of snow holds off.  I can remember my early days pumped up full of beer travelling around the country to games in the back of freezing vans. The worst I remember was a crammed Luton huddled together in the compartment above the cab trying to stay alive. The spilt beer and urine had turned to ice sending everyone flying every time it stopped, took off or cornered. The only stops allowed were for petrol, or a pub so containers a pipe and funnel were essential equipment.  Although I did hire a new Ford Granda in 1980 for a 1 - 1 cup night match at Portsmouth. Terry Cochrane scored, latter we became good friends, but it was a toxic atmosphere and lost my bother who took off while being threatened. Drove around town until we found him being chased down the street by a few hundred agitated morons. Picked him up on the move but someone cracked the windscreen. I remember leaving work at lunch, drove down and back after the game and in to work next day. BORO mad back then.  
    • I didn't see the problem with it personally, whatever the rules actually are, I feel like it should be a goal. It's not a foul as its a challenge by his own player. It's not a head injury so it doesn't need immediate attention. And you're gonna have a hard time convincing me he's not making the most of that just to stop play anyway. Admittedly, he probably doesn't realise himself who's actually stood on his foot but note that by the time the shot hits the back of the net, there only seems to be one player who realises he's down and is asking for play to be stopped... the man who stood on his foot to begin with.
