What about K.Kamara? Surely he should be fit enough now and start ahead of Main. Everyone seems to have forgotten about him.

I could not believe it when I woke up this morning and read that about Main starting . He would struggle for a game at Yeovil in this league so why is karanka constantly playing him... It's embarrassing .

Is he his bloody dad or something !! My only criticism of AK so far. A strikers job is to score goals how many has main got this season ?? 0? Or maybe 1 I can't remember either way it's not good enough to warrant a starting place.

Yes Main does defend from the front but I'd rather have a striker that can attack from the front better than he does at the expense of some pressing. Actually Main could work well v Blackburn tomorrow as they've just sold the club captain Scott Dann so they could be struggling with communication/understanding in defence so his closing down could cause them loads of problems.

Given

Varga Woodgate Gibson Friend

Leadbitter Chalobah

Adomah Ledesma Carayol

Graham

 

Dimi; Omerou, Hines; Whitehead, Butterfield; Main, Kamara

 

Would be my team. And I'm going for a 2-0 win.

 

Also, "Did you know it takes just 1 hour 15 minutes to get to Manchester from Blackburn on the train, incredible stuff" made me laugh so much.

Main is useless. Runs about a lot, anybody could do that. He hasn't got a footballing brain.

 

Please start with Graham. If he isn't for 90 mins, give him 65/70 and then bring on Kamara.

I can't see how graham can't be fit? He hasn't been injured has he? He played plenty at hull earlier this season and he will have been training all the time and the same at Boro . Sorry mr. Mourinho's friend but you have to play him or kamara over main.

I'm not Main's biggest fan but I disagree. Not everyone is willing to put in the shift that he does and he's clearly an excellent option if the manager is implementing a pressing game.

 

I'm certainly not saying that it's the way I'd play, but Karanka's keeps getting results. Maybe Main's job is to work the defendrs to fatigue before introducing Graham to capitalise.

 

I'm sure there's method behind the madness!

    • Oh dear mate. I have some bad news to tell you about Friend 🙁
    • With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With match fitness a question mark over both I would guess he would rather start with them and then plan to take them off when tiring rather than maybe having to put them on early as a Sub if an injury occurred. Warnock seems very protective of his players and the risk of them picking up injuries which is why I think he may start with Roberts and Watmore as it gives him more in-game control. The obvious choice would be if he started with those that finished on Wednesday night but I suspect he will want to keep morale high across the squad and keep faith in Watmore and Roberts knowing that he can fall back on Johnson and Spence. Whatever he goes with he has my confidence and trust which is something I don't think I have felt about a Boro Manager in a very long time.
    • I think its either Bettinelli's agent trying to rack up interest (which is his job in fairness)  or lazy journalism or more likely a combination of the two. Dimi had an incredible record here for clean sheets in a season but it was a similar story to now with the organisation of the defence resulting in the Keeper having little or nothing to do. No disrespect to Dimi but he was hardly the most athletic or agile Keeper I've ever seen in a Boro shirt, although no worse than the medal bedecked one who came in after him which proved how playing behind a good team can make a keeper look great. Most Keepers would do well behind the current Red barrier in front of them. Bettinelli's vocal skills does add to that sense of impenetrability probably as much if not more so than the actual amount of work he has to do keeping shots out. Decent keeper who I would prefer to stay but I would be more concerned about losing Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola, Friend, Howson etc.
    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
