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!

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

    • Even with no rumours today, I still back Warnock to bring in players he would actually use for his style and system. I’ve just watched (I know late to the party) Sunderland til I die season 2 and their January window episode.   Firstly, It amazes me how the chairman splurged money on Will Grigg when he could have used that extra money to get Maja to stay. But secondly, and more boro related was that the manager at the time Jack Ross didn’t really fancy Will Grigg, but the chairman bought him anyway. Surprise surprise, Will Grigg struggled and didn’t fit in to how they play.    How does this relate to Boro? Well I think in the past, we have bought players who don’t fit a style and system for a manager. I think Warnock won’t sanction players to come if they don’t fit in, and this is obviously a huge positive moving forward.    Put it this way, I’m more confident that players will come to us for Warnock and work for him as opposed to a Boro under Woodgate. You can already tell the mentality of moving on quickly and not begging for players had an impact.    Why did Woodgate start Gestede vs Swansea, knowing that Gestede wouldn’t want to play in case he got injured. Warnock commands respect and Woodgate was seeking it. Big difference in mentality that I think gets overlooked with Woodgate and the recruitment side. 
    • Warnock's deadline for players to decide has nearly passed.
    • All pritty quiet today, other than the wingy debate, hopefully in prep for an influx of new signings
    • That was actually scrapped in Denmark as it’s impossible for the stewards to tell if people live together. Just too hard to handle 
    • August 3rd 1974 Boro 0 Carlisle United 1 A dull and disappointing Texaco Cup game between two teams who were both contemplating life in the First Division after being promoted together a few weeks earlier. In fact they'd meet twice in the top flight in the next fortnight or so. Boro became frustrated after several early saves by Carlisle keeper Alan Ross and too often resorted to long balls that the visitors' tall defenders dealt with comfortably.  It was former Boro favourite Hugh McIlmoyle who created the only goal, setting up Martin to fire home after 50 minutes. All in all a bad day at the office for Boro, with Jack Charlton saying after the game that he'd seen his team work harder in practice matches. In the news - The Tories criticised Labour's manifesto pledge to follow a policy of nationalisation ahead of the forthcoming election, housewives were warned (in a possibly sexist way) that eggs could cost £1.50 a dozen by 1975, Richard Nixon prepared to give a TV address as impeachment loomed in the Watergate affair and three north east lads were arrested in Spain for singing loudly at 2am and fined £1 each (equivalent to 8 eggs, or a decent Spanish omelette). Top of the charts - Rock Your Baby by George McCrae.
