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....

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
