Boro V Leicester City (A)

Recommended Posts

Wasn't the same fixture last year on TV. I'm sure it was. I also remember a cracking game where the only difference between the two sides was their strikers (Nugent I think) ability to finish. And we lost 1nil. I remember thinking we'll do well the rest of that season as we played really good against a strong team. How wrong I was.

But unfortunately u think the same will happen. To good teams cancelling each other out and it will be decided by one goal to the team that can convert their chances. Which will probably be them.

 

Think it was. Did Marv not miss a pen in the last minute??

 

We have nothing to fear here we r playing as well as they r!! 2-0 boro UTB

Wow - amazed at how many posts this thread has got already. Funny what a winning / unbeaten streak can do for forum activity. ;)

 

Anyway, on to the game. A few people have pointed to Leicester's struggles against Leeds - couple of things about that: first, they were away from home and second, they still got the win. They have home advantage for this game, which will only tilt the balance further in their favour.

 

 

Can't see beyond a Leicester win. They don't really do draws (only 3 all season) and have only lost 5 times. With a GD of +20 Boro will probably have to score twice just to get a draw...which I think we'll struggle to do. Form-wise, its true both sides are very similar, but for once I don't think it will count for anything.

 

Season Record

LEICESTER: W18 D3 L5 F47 A27 Pts 57 Pos 1st

BORO: W9 D9 L8 F41 A33 Pts 36 Pos 9th

 

Last 6 Games

LEICESTER: W W W W W W

BORO: W W W D W W

 

 

Boro Mad stats are somewhat more encouraging (in that they at least give hope for a draw):

 

Leicester v Boro

 

Played: 39

Leicester Wins: 17

Draws: 14

Boro Wins: 8

 

Leicester Goals: 57

Boro Goals: 46

 

Last Boro win at Leicester: September 17th 2001 (Leicester 1 - 2 Boro).

 

My Prediction: Leicester 3 - 1 Boro (but would be very happy with a point)

Tough game this but i think if we can get in the faces and show them no respect and keep vardy and Nugent quiet maybe just maybe we could get a result.... But we have to be on the metal from the go

Going to be a very tough game if we play like we did against Burnley I can see us nicking a win if we play like we did against Charlton (from what i've heard) we'll lose.

 

1-1 for me. Actually nah 1-0 to us :)

 

Just had a look at their forum that buzzer is rather good looking :D

Spot on AR and really pleased to see it. The Charlton thread had over 600 posts and slowly but surely the match thread activity is creeping up.

 

Can see this one being a high post count as well.

 

We are also getting a very healthy number of new members on line who are admitting to being long time lurkers.........all we need is for a few of our older members like Tyler Curtis Dunerezzz etc to come back.

Even Borocoxswain is back posting which is great though I have not see Raf for a while:)

 

Oh and I sincerely hope a few Foxes fans might participate for certain reasons

"BoroWeasel.... your recent run of form could very easily be a false dawn. Your team, though bouyed by Karanka is pretty average to be fair. I'm surprised that Mowbray didn't make it better. In reality, he seemed to take you backwards.

I have little fear about playing you on Saturday and I reckon you'll be impressed with how we are playing. You're coming down to earth with a bump my friend.

3-1 Leicester City "

 

Well, they're confident!

Please don't think we are all like it cos we are not.

However I do think we will win a very hard fought game 1-0

    • Moses..........with our scouts, we would probably end up with the original version........mind you, if he could split a defence like that day by the Red Sea, he would be worth having  
    • Boro this day 18th November 1972 My 2nd ever away Boro game when my dad took me & his ICI work colleague to the Sheffield Wednesday game, my previous away game was Boro's last away game on the 11th which seen us win 1-0, courtecy of a John Hickton goal I remember we went in a pub before the game, I was 12 so drinking soft drinks At the game we sat in the seats that were put in for the 66 world cup took   John Hickton scored a penalty to put the mighty Boro in front, this was his 3rd goal v Sheff Weds in 5 games against them since we signed him from Sheff Weds, his 1st goal at Hillsborough though  The afternoon didn't turn out to good a day for big John, or the Boro fans         Jim Platt saved a 1st half penalty from Tommy Craig, the referee deemed Jim had moved to soon & the spot kick was retaken, again jim Platt was to be successful a 2nd time & dived the right way to save the 2nd spot kick                                                                                Sheff Wed equalised on half time & the 2nd half was one way traffic, eventually we couldnt cope & Tommy Craig, who missed the 1st half penalty, scored a scorcher, I can still see him running away towards their kop with his arms aloft We had led, Jim Platt had saved 2 penalties & we lost 2-1, 2 away games for me, one win & a loss, welcome the the Boro son   Stan Andersons team Jim Platt Peter Creamer - 5th appearence out of 6 that season  Frank Spraggon Nobby Stiles Stuey Boam Willie Maddren Bill Gates Eric McMordie David Mills John Hickton - 4th goal of the season David Armstrong Sub Gordon Jones - Final appearence as sub,  he started a further 8 games
    • So we shouldn't get too excited about this England team despite recent youth injection, attacking style of play, Russia World cup Semi-Finals and a comfortable Euro 2020 qualification because of past failings ?
    • Or Derby would get 1st shout with the connection
    • I can't see anything but a fairly comfortable Denmark win.
