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.

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....

    • Not to prolong the point for too long as last night exhausted me so much so that I want to frankly rid politics and politicians from the system for a couple of years, right now... 😂 but the proposed funding for the NHS doesn't stack up. Admittedly, contrary to what some on the left say, I'm pretty sure the Tories recently have been putting more in even in real terms and that's all well and good... but the NHS is becoming more expensive due to the ageing population without even considering the strain that the level of funding is putting on workers, especially with little to no financial reward from it. It's one of the best things about our country and for it to remain that way, we have to fund it more than we ever have. I'd frankly throw a lot of the nationalisation policies in the bin if it meant we just gave the NHS the money it needed to keep being great. If as I suspect, we do enter into a trade deal with the US with anything to do with health on the table, that number will rise even more. Tories are more likely to make tax cuts than ask for more tax to pay for anything so by that measure, the lowest rungs on the societal ladder of our country will fall off first. The NHS, mental health, social care, etc. there's not enough going in to solve these problems. Labour's spending plans were through the roof but the Tories are barely spending anything at all based on their plans. I was listening to Mark Francois on LBC the other week talking to a fella with a wife and 2 kids who looks after both his now disabled parents as a carer so their only income is his carer's allowance and his wife's job, £14k for looking after children with special needs, something like £18k overall? He asks Francois what the Tories will do for him and the best he can come up with is that over time, he'll be able to keep more of his money from tax. I sincerely worry for people like that who contribute so much in a very small, localised circle getting little support from this government. It genuinely makes me sad that people who can't do anything but put a brave face on every day and just get by get nothing in return for it.
    • I mean, I know it's pretty difficult to trust any politician, especially Johnson, but the NHS and improving it was like the first key point (after Brexit obviously) that he talked about, so fingers crossed he actually legitimately sticks to what he said in his speech, because I didn't disagree with any of it. Now I suppose we just have to wait and see..
    • We need to go with 2 strikers up top. If Britt is fit off course he comes back in but if not I’d give Walker a go alongside Fletcher. Look very weak leaving Fletcher up front isolated.
