Very surprised if this game gets the go ahead.

Too much cold weather here; too much snow. I hate winter. I've not commented in many days, but thought I'd throw in a question.

 

So, tell me why Kamara isn't playing more. Really would like to see him spark up the offense. Is he being held back by injury or by the emergence of other players? I think he's settled into life there and is happy. But, why isn't he getting playing time?

 

came of the bench a few times but he hasnt impressed me at all. looks a shadow of the player we had at the start of the season. cant see him getting much game time in the near future either as we have just signed a new striker on loan.

 

to be fair to him since he has came back the whole team hasnt been the greatest, hopefully as the team pick up form so will he


just taken this off fmttm;

 

Been told today that if the expected rain comes on Friday the Watford game will get called off

 

Apparently their pitch is a mess already and the rain will just swamp it.

 

Just giving people the heads up!

 

It'll probably get called off 15 minutes before kick off then. Not like we have far to travel :)

Am i right in thinking, that if this game gets called off Tomlin won't be able to make his debut against Leeds which will be a shame as it would have been the perfect time.

Nice effort MBP but slight edit made lol!!!

 

Well the weather today is fine so as I am so close to Watford Hertfordshire I would imagine it is the same there. Dry and sunny but I daresay that things will change and this game will be subject to cancellation at anytime I guess perhaps it would suit watford to a degree but I do hope it goes ahead.

 

Can see this being a draw but we must score in this game surely Danny Graham coming back to haunt his old club and besides he scored for Watford against The Boro so hopefully tables will be turned.

 

Should be a good game and one we could very well win............as long as we score

Hopefully all this wind will dry the pitch out, just in time for 0-0 draw!

Dont know where you got your information from, the pitch was in perfect condition on Tuesday. I would doubt very much if there will be a problem with the pitch

It will be a typical Championship game, very little between the two teams. The new manager at Watford has improved their defence since he has arrived especially at home only one goal conceded in their last five home games. The transfer window brought in five new players and it has brought an improvement in form with two wins and a draw at Leicester, they needed a defensive midfielder badly and since Tozser came they are unbeaten. I dont expect a high scoring game but it will be nice to see a couple of our former players, how is Chalobah doing? a class player in the right setup

Chalobah has had to bide his time to get into the side as Karanka has been happy with the job Whitehead and Leadbitter have been doing protecting the back four. But lately he started to play and in his only home game he started v Blackburn he done well(very mobile, good on the ball) and should surely keep his play in the side for the game on Saturday. Everything is pointing towards a tactical game where there will be very little chances created so a 0-0 or a 1-0 for whoever makes the most of their few chances in front of goal.

Love the match thread MBP! :D

 

Have to admit to being a little surprised at how far What?ford have fallen down the table. I think the last time I checked, they were still in the play-off places.

 

Thoughts on the match are pretty much the same as the Blackburn fixture. While Boro have better recent form than the hosts, the overall season stats for both teams are similar enough to make it difficult to predict the outcome. Normally, I'd have What?ford to just shade the match and get the win thanks to home advantage, but given our stellar defensive record, we ought to at least come away with a share of the spoils.

 

WATFORD: W9¦ D11¦ L9¦ F43¦ A37¦ Pts 38¦ Pos 13th

BORO: W9¦ D12¦ L9¦ F41¦ A35¦ Pts 39¦ Pos 12th

 

Last 10 Games

WATFORD: W3 D4 L3

BORO: W5 D4 L1

 

 

Seems Boro and What?ford haven't played each other that often. According to Boro Mad, our record at their place is as follows:

 

Played: 15

Watford Win: 7

Draw: 2

Boro Win: 6

 

Watford Goals: 20

Boro Goals: 18

 

Biggest Watford Win: 3 - 1 (2010/11)

Biggest Boro Win: 4 - 1 (2006/07)

 

Last Watford Win: 2 - 1 (2011/12)

Last Boro Win: 2 - 1 (2012/13)

 

The reverse fixture this season ended in a 2 - 2 draw at the Riverside.

 

 

My Prediction: What?ford 1 - 1 Middlesbrough

Perhaps I might be letting my heart rule my head here (never break the habit of a lifetime) but I think we might sneak this. Now that we've tightened up the defence, the focus will be on scoring goals and imo this will be our first real crack at that with Graham (yes, I know he played last week but that was much too soon after signing).

 

Watford are a good team, but they're all good teams. The Champo is the new PL, in fact it's more exciting than the PL to be honest. We can go to Vicarage Road and come back with 3 points.

Going to be a very tight game, but I see us losing this to a late goal...we needed a striker in January and didn't get one.

Isn't Graham a striker? :S

    • I was just reading over the summer transfer window thread and I had one or two things to say about this in the summer 😡😀 I also found these two old posts of mine which I feel deserve to be highlighted for their prescience: From the 25th of June: I suspect that if Woodgate intends on us being a pressing / passing team (or whatever his intentions may be for us), that the majority of the players who are already here will be the players playing the bulk of the games.  I think we also have to consider that we must be desperate to get rid of some players and maybe we need to do that first before we sign their replacements?  And you've got to think that the likes of McNair, Tavernier and Fletcher are going to be used a lot more.  I wouldn't say they are like new signings or anything like that but I would see McNair as an obvious replacement for Besic and Tavernier to be used possibly in a variety of ways.  Fletcher takes one of the wide attacking positions and what are we looking for, another wide attacker and a full back or two?  I'm not saying that's how I'm looking at it, I'm just trying to look at it from the club's point of view.  So if we're only looking for a few players then things are more likely to be quiet as compared to previous windows. And even earlier on the 14th of June: It's part of our new philosophy.  Instead of having loads of right backs and one left back we are going to have loads of left backs and one right back. It's all change at Boro.   Absolutely nailed it, hurrah! ✌️ People really need to stop arguing with me now and just accept that I'm always right.
    • I think its, we're having to throw young players in desperate to make an impression and overdoing it
    • The bulk of the money the club owes is to Gibson O'Neill so he won't be putting us into administration.  Our outgoings are too high and really administration isn't going to help much with that.  We either have to reduce costs or increase revenue.  It's easier to do the former than the latter although selling some players will obviously help with that.  That's what we're doing at the moment.
    • The possibility that Gibbo is gradually winding things up in preparation for administration has occurred to me. I've been trying to push the thought away since the summer. There has been a lot of "woe is me, I've been doing everything by the rules and all these other mean clubs are cheating and making it impossible for us to compete financially" stuff coming out since last Spring. If he spins a good enough tale then a lot of fans will still see him as a hero for saving the club in 86 and giving them all these extra years. We get annoyed on here about all the lies and spin which come out of the club, but there are a lot of fans who lap it all up and believe everything they are told.
