Boro V Blackburn 0-0

Recommended Posts

Who remembers that game 2 year ago Sunderland at home we lost 2-1 in extra time but we played really well!! Anyway main was great in that game won headers against experienced defenders like Michael turner ( okay I know he isn't very good ) he also scored a beauty away goal at millwall .... Yet 2 years later he has gone so far backwards it's untrue

Tempted to go to this today, but the idea of Main playing up front is putting me off, we can't keep possession in the opponents half when he is playing which in turn leads to a boring defensive performance.

got a feeling we're going to have a good day today. graham will have a point to prove, so i can see him scoring.

 

sneaky 1-0 to Boro, keeping the whole clean sheet thing intact (who could have seen that coming a few months ago?)!

 

also, hope main has a good game. he appears to have become the new boo boy!

It's his low confidence(so awful composure and touch) that has made him look shocking lately. He needs a loan to a league more his current level(League 1/2) to play regularly and start converting chances.

 

The one thing that irritates me about him is that when he gets a chance the majority of the time he just lashes his boot at it instead of composing him self and aiming his shot. The very few times he's done that, usually from range, he's got better shots off that have caused goalkeepers far more problems.

Doh! Just saw we are at home today, been away and was convinced we were away today. Oh Buggar...start the mad dash

I'm not saying main is perfect, but i think some of the flack he's getting is a bit OTT. he's looked good at times this season, even if he has been a bit poor the last 2 or 3 games.

I'll be surprised if he starts with main up front, he's not done a lot lately, with Graham in the squad as well

 

I'm going for a 1-0 Blackburn win

Can't agree, its not just his poor scoring record this year, it's the fact that we can't keep possesion whilst he's on the pitch, all of our attacks break down when he gets the ball, ruins our style of play

I'm going with a 3rd nil nil if Main's playing, same reason I said 0 0 for Doncaster with Main on the pitch by himself running around we have little chance of scoring unless we get some AA magic. We have energy and powerful runners across our midfield Im not sure we need Main our midfield overpowers Blackburn (on paper) so Main chasing the ball isn't that necessary, I hope it's not too long before we see Graham then we might score.

Mixed feelings about the Main inclusion but hey if gets one goal then all is forgiven until next time!

 

We need to score early in this game and by that the opening goal as Blackburn will maintain a steady drive throughout the game and being reliant on Rhodes.........get them on the back foot and it may become a good Boro performance today.

 

One thing for sure and not been commented on is that Ledesma needs to regain his performance levels of early weeks because I think his intensity has dropped to a degree and he is perhpas being a bit self absorbed.

I feel quite confident about today, im going for a 3-0 win. Hopefully Main gets a***st the goals to belay all the negativity against him, after all he is a real trier and could be a fans favourite with some end result to his endeavour.

If not then one of the midfielders must be due a couple of goals, so I will stick to my prediction, which is 25 to 1 at the mo.

    • I agree 100%, some of us see a glass half full, and some see it half empty , but I can honestly say that the majority of people on here have made points that have made me think differently about players and situations that have occurred. I might not agree with everything they say, but if their reasoning makes sense, then a different point of view can be quite refreshing and it is good to see that most discussions end fairly amicably, though one or two are sometimes easily wound up. Long may it continue  
    • It's in the BBC report I linked first...like literally the 2nd sentence.
    • Yep. Sky have just mentioned that.  Wasn't in the report I'd first seen.
    • It is encouraging that we are getting contracts sorted a little earlier than usual and that the negotiations are seemingly going smoothly. Hopefully the trend continues, as the last thing we need is a situation where a few players are allowed to see out their contracts and move on without fees like the end of last season. Britt has a big decision to make as he must know he will not get a similar contract from us, so unless he wants to settle for a move to USA or China, he is going to have to be content with lower wages. I think the way the game has changed in the last few years does not suit his style of play. He seems to lack the ball control and work rate that most teams require and is not adept at creating openings for himself, but he may find somewhere that suits him. He seems like a decent lad so good luck to him wherever he ends up (as long as he doesn't come back to haunt us).  
    • Sky have just said 2000 fans will be allowed in Tier 2.  Still can't see that applying to us for quite a long time.  Hope they keep the paid stream going.
