Boro V Blackburn 0-0

Recommended Posts

Main isn't good enough at this level; probably never will be but certainly isn't right now. But I'm happy with him as third choice with Graham/Kamara fighting for the starting spot. He does work hard. In my opinion that shouldn't be overlooked; that raw effort to provide the defenders with a non-stop physical handful is certainly helpful to the team, albeit one of his only strengths! I'd be disgusted if he becomes the next boo boy. But he doesn't score goals nor offer assists! Clearly a big problem. And I'd be very unhappy if he starts today.

 

So basically Tomlin IS a fat *** and we've signed him so he can lose weight and become some Rooney-esque wonder buy?

 

His talent is not in question. Certainly not at this level, in my opinion. Difficult to tell the true extent of his fitness, though his appearance, views from other fans and struggle with us in training so far do suggest the worst! But I think AK will make sure he improves that side of his game massively. He could very well be better then even us optimists could imagine. This suspension might be a blessing in disguise. So, though I can't wait to see him action, I'm not too disappointed that we are without him for these few games.

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.

We are one of the highest scorers in the division without any of our centre forwards getting many goals. So why do you predict 0-0 and put the blame on Main being on the pitch. Not being difficult, just want to understand your thinking.

At the end of the day if the lad is 21 stone and scores a ***load of goals in this division -- then I will happily pay for his parmos.

 

I'm also a bit concerned over his suspension issues. He certainly does appear to be a poor man's Rooney.

Hmm Adomah left out again is worrying, I wonder if Leadbitter or Chalobah will play more advanced... Hopefully not Leadbitter, I really don't like him in that role.

Adomah again missing out. His injury must be a bit serious.

I'm glad that Graham is starting but I'm gutted Adomah is only on the bench. But I suppose at least we've got him for an impact substitution.

 

I;ve got a feeling it will be 1-1 with a Rhodes early goal with us getting an equaliser in the second half. Hopefully it's a comfortable 3-0 romp to us though but cant really see it.

433? Odd.

 

Liverpool are playing a 4-3-3 seems to be working for them :)

Good thing is, if we cant work out who`s playing where, imagine the Blackburn manager trying to work it out.

    • As the next window is less than six weeks away, I think it is time to create a new thread for rumours, wishes and scurrilous falsehoods about players that may arrive, leave or be seen from the bushes around Rockcliffe car park. My number one hope is we can find someone with a similar style to the hero of 1995, though I am sure that we will never get the chance to receive two Fuchs (or whatever the plural might be). A strong direct forward is something we have need of and could be the difference between us challenging for playoffs and treading water. Haaland probably just beyond our finances, but must be some other candidates to fit the bill somewhere in Europe 
    • Would absolutely love if we could tie down McNair for longer, that'd be the big one for contracts.
    • 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.
