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....

    • Alan Nixon saying Randolph may have to be sold to raise funds in Jan. West Ham are among this said to be interested.
    • Yes we have noticed buddy. 🤣🤣 You deserved a medal for last season you were the strongest in the league. Held everyone else up all season.   😁
    • Gestede lent them to Britt stating "as long as he gives me them back soon"
    • Well I'm pleased with the result. From all accounts we missed a fair few sitters again. So it's not just Britt. However, it sounds like we played a decent game. Charlton are a competent side. Granted they have issues with injuries at the moment. But then again so do we. So to come out on top is a big lift. I am well happy that the youngsters took their chance. This is exactly what we want. Hungry, work hard lads who are going to give their all for the duration of the game. Good result. certainly one we needed and the table looks more palatable now. Hopefully we can keep it going. Well done Boro. Keep battling and we will get out of this mess.
    • Another refreshing thing about today was that players showed the right emotions when they didn't convert chance....no cheesy grins...Walker actually thumped pitch in frustration when he realised he had delayed too long and Tav had head in hands.....but they both got on with it afterwards and made sure we kept possession when we needed to.....and fair play to Pears for being a virtual spectator for 75 minutes and still producing a couple of good saves.....and we are getting the points from the teams we need to be getting the points from......we might not have turned the corner, but the fog has cleared enough for it to be visible would settle for a point against Forest...but that would be a bonus....though Millwall showed that if you go at them with speed, they can be upset.....
