Boro V Wigan Athletic

Recommended Posts

At least Josh McEachran won't have a wonder game against us (As old players often seem to do) :D

 

"Josh McEachran's Wigan debut, meanwhile, will not come against old club.

 

Boss Uwe Rosler says the on-loan Chelsea midfielder, who spent all of last season with Boro, is still a couple of weeks away from being ready to make his bow and McEachran has been assigned a training programme to help assist him."

 

Is the afore mentioned "training programme" a diet of pies and ice cream to beef him up a bit?

This will be a very nervy game. Our good run ended at Leicester and we desperately don't want to lose two on the bounce. A win will be very important as Wigan are competitors for the play offs and we have to keep the pressure on te top-6. I still think it will be a 1-1 draw and both teams will be satisfied they they haven't lost two in a row.

I'm taking a draw on my accumulator tonight, so it will be either Middlesbrough or Wigan to come away with the 3 points tonight.

I think we will see Omeruo and Woodgate in 2nite!! AK doesn't let people make mistakes 2 games in a row!! I'm going for a 3-0 boro win

Think it will be a fairly even game between two even sides. Home advantage should play a part though as we're on a good run at home, and I think we'll win 2-1. Adomah and Kamara back a***st the goals.

 

Hope I'm completely wrong and we smash them 4-0 though :D

I think Cholabah is more likely to start over Whitehead due to his mobility. I believe he is also the type of player that would help us fire out of the starting blocks, being more attacking minded than Dean. I would have thought Dean may replace him if we take the lead and need to hold the game in the later stages. Shoot me down if I'm wrong!

AK seems to follow the "if it aint broke don't fix it" mentality. He likes Whitehead and Leadbitter together atm so I'd be amazed to see Chalobah displace either of them atm.

I read somewhere earlier in the week that Wigan had only sold 92 tickets for tonight's game. That is so poor for a club that was only in the Premier League last year.

 

I remember going to Grimsby/Hartlepool in the Grimsby end in the JPT about 4 years ago at Hartlepool and Grimsby took 88 fans that night, you practically had a chat with everyone there. Wonder how much Wigan will actually bring tonight....

    • Ha I thought everyone myself included would be more excited on the back of a win.  I agree with everything you said. Same formation/team with Gestede in if Britt is injured.  I do have slightly more optimism however currently believing we could get 2-1 from this game if we can keep Grabben quiet. 
    • Wow - you're keen FB! But then I suppose wins do that to you.   1) Match Result? As Rioch's Braves said, Boro very rarely do well at Forest...even when we've been able to name a full strength team. They've been going pretty well so far this season, so I can't see beyond a home win...and a fairly comfortable one at that, given Boro's injury crisis. Prediction: Forest 3 - 0 Boro   2) With Britt seeing leaving on crutches after the Charlton game - Do we keep the same formation and if so, does Gestede or Walker start? Given the spirited performance the lads put in against Charlton, they deserve to start again - after all its not like we have many better options available.  That said, I would put Gestede in ahead of Walker, purely for his greater experience, despite his lack of match fitness...but I'd definitely have Walker on the bench. 3) Adomah back facing the Boro in a Forest shirt. Money aside, would you have him back in January? In a heartbeat! AA is one of the best signings we've made in the last 10 years. A fine servant for the club and I was very sorry to see him go. Sadly I fear he will be one of our tormentors-in-chief. If he doesn't score against us, you can guarantee he will at least set one up. 4) Best debut you have seen? I thought Djed (is that really spelt with a "D"?) Spence did himself proud. Seems to be the way that we don't produce wingers / wing backs very often, but when we do they tend to be a bit special.   Looking forward to reading the Forest forums nearer the time to see how many they think they'll win by...    
    • Played some good football yesterday and should have won by a few more some good chances missed, well worth the win. Early doors but Spence looks like quality skillful and fast into the tackle which  we haven't been seeing, and good going forward Coulson another good game and Howson has always had that bit of quality about him. Tav is just getting better game by game always looking to make something happen plays without fear. I thought we were well up for it chasing down,putting  strong challenges in we need to keep that level of intensity up.
    • No idea how Celtic are winning this cup final. Been all Rangers, and Morelos seems cursed against Celtic.
