Boro V Blackburn 0-0

Recommended Posts

I think the question will be less Carayol vs Kamara and more Carayol vs Ledesma when Tomlin comes into the team and Adomah is fully fit. Who offers more? Myself, I prefer Ledesma to start and Carayol to come on. If ledesma has a poor couple of games in a row, switch out for Carayol to start and vice versa. How great is it to actually have options in the wide positions, must be the first time for a very very long time (since we've never had a great right winger in recent years)

Carayol has been brilliant lately, whereas Ledesma has faded so Carayol must start ahead of him. I seem to remember Peterborough's chairman saying that Tomlin works very well with pace around him so he could thrive with Carayol and Adomah down the wings.

Its just what Emnes needs, the opportunity for a reality check. He will realise with Swansea that he is not the great footballer that he thinks he is and that he is not good enough for the PL. Experts on here have defended him in the past "confidence player that lacks confidence" Not true IMO, He is the epitome of the football mercenary, no loyalty, lazy, petulant and has an over inflated ego. Good riddance.

Fair point on Carayol, but I also think that in general, Carayol has more bad games than Ledesma does. When Ledesma is not in the game he is at least still decent at picking out a pass and can always score from distance. When Carayols having an off day all he does is run into the first man over and over and is an almost cert to lose the ball.

He hasn't done that in a while though NB4, the last few games i've been to he's nearly always beat his man,unless he's ran himself ragged and needs subbing, ala blackburn

Carayol has been one of our most consistent players lately since he came back into the team.

    • As long as we don't lose, I don't really mind 👍
    • Actually, I started talking about this season's stats.  You said our strikers are rubbish so I looked at the stats over the period that they've been here to see what they also looked like.  Unless the extent of your argument is that they have suddenly turned to rubbish now of course, then that is the right way to look at it, whether you like it or not.  Nothing arrogant about that, it's just common sense.  I added the other players to show that they aren't scoring goals, and as a team scores goals, not simply the strikers, it's quite clearly relevant to how many goals we have scored this season, and over the seasons when our rubbish strikers have been here.  We have midfielders who scored goals elsewhere unable to score goals at the same frequency here.   That has nothing to do with our strikers but clearly impacts how many goals we score.
    • I like Bamford.  I thought he was our best striker and said so on numerous occasions.  I think he's a better striker than Assombalonga, Fletcher and Akpom (from what little I've seen of him).  In the last two seasons Bamford scored 25 goals.  Assombalonga has also scored 25 goals in that time.  I still think Bamford is the better player but in the last two seasons they scored exactly the same amount of goals.  Bowen is a completely different player to any of our strikers but also a better player I think it's safe to say.
    • Great news but I can't see Middlesbrough being in a low enough Tier unfortunately any time soon.
    • That wasn't my main argument.
