Boro V Watford (A) 0-1

Recommended Posts

I can see this being a bit like the Blackpool away game - both sides playing defensively then one getting a late goal in through breaks in concentration. Watford are now tight defensively and Boro have I think 8 games of 10 in not conceding. In truth both sides are in danger of seasons that are fizzling out and planning for next year. I think this hinges on whether AA starts, but Carayol was very good against Blackburn. We cannot play Leadbitter as number 10, so maybe Butterfield should be given another chance or possibly put Ledesma there. It would be some record to go five games without scoring (not in a good way) - I think 1:0 to Boro.

Hi guys,

Last week there were many road closures in Watford due to flooding. There hasn't been much let up in the rain but our match on Tuesday was never in doubt and nor will tomorrow's match be in jeopardy. We have a desso system pitch which, along with the foundations, drainage etc, was re-laid 18 months ago.

 

As for predictions. Well we will need to score 3 to win as Graham and Chalobah will score for you ;-). Because of last seasons 'success' , teams have come and been even more defensive at Vicarage Road and I'm not expecting anything different from you guys. Like yours our Manager has tried to make us more difficult to score against but we have also scored 11 in our last 6 games.

 

I feel it it will be a tight affair and only hope that its a far more entertaining game than on Tuesday. Our manager is a tactician and if you have a set style he might find some way through. For me both teams have a lot of quality and if you come for more than a draw, I fancy us to nick it by the odd goal. 2-1.

Your manager can be as much of a tactician as he wants but in our last 10 we've lost once against Leicester and we've kept 8 clean sheets in 10 conceding 4 goals!

 

Goals have been hard for us to come by more recently. We've not scored in our last 4. However in our last match we seemed to be looking more creative and in particular our wingers are absolutely devastating. We created plenty of chances but couldn't finish any. Both teams are looking solid at the back and we seem to be the experts of 0-0 draws, so I'm going to say a 4-3 win for the boro with a George friend hattrick and shay given penalty with several hones to come on as a sub in the 80th minute and not to be outdone by friend, subsequently score a hattrick of own goals with the last in the 98th minute (there's going to be 10 minutes of injury time when woodgate fractures his skull and simultaneously injures his a achilles and acl after falling over tying his laces). This will set up a tense finale but boro will prevail.

Who's Several Hones? Is he another Spaniard that Karanka has roped in?

If Carayol is fit i think we'll line up as we did against Blackburn.

Does anyone know how the weather is in Watford at the moment and the forecast for overnight/tomorrow?. I really hope the game doesn't get postponed as it will mean Tomlin won't be available against Leeds next Saturday.

    • We've got to come out of the blocks fast and on the front foot, vital that we get that early goal, because the more the game goes on without scoring, that's when we get frustrated and allow the opposition chances. We have got to create  the goal scoring opportunities for Britt, its no good him feeding off scraps, but other players are going to have to start weighing in with a few more. McNair needs to be getting in the box and Tav and Wing both can hit a ball outside and around the box and Woodgate needs to encourage them to do this. I think the only way I see Woodgate changing the side is if we have an injury beforehand. No excuses or hard luck stories, anything less than 6 points from the next 2 home games is a failure, we have got to be winning them.  
    • They have a goalkeeper on their books called Will Mannion, which is just one letter away from the great man's name.  One letter in a game like this can be crucial. I assume we'll have the same team out unless we've suffered some injuries over the break.  I haven't heard anything though.  My instincts would be to switch to a back four but that's more about me not being convinced that the current set up is the way to go for us.  We've got to hope that Assombalonga's confidence is up a bit because he looks like the only person capable of scoring goals for us with any regularity - it's time that a few other players stepped up and contributed goals. We might have a problem defending our flanks given we'll have wingbacks and they won't and they are good on the break, which is another problem as I think our midfield is crap at defending counterattacks in general.  Their away record is actually pretty good, which is a bit of a worry as it may well suit them.  I don't fancy going a goal down against this lot as I think it will play into their hands.
    • The issue of Russian interference on Oneboro has been massively overblown ♟️
    • Why does the MFC Fans Forum have to be about things affecting the average Boro fan as a priority?  Read that question to yourself a few times and see if you can come up with an answer.  If you can't then I'd suggest you are the one missing the point rather than anyone else.  Let's start a forum for dialogue with the club and then prioritise the interests of the smallest number of Boro fans possible and indeed people who aren't actually Boro fans at all.  That seems like a logical use of such a vehicle assuming of course that it's less about being a method for Boro fans to communicate with the club and more about being a socio-political group. In terms of race and sexuality, I haven't seen anything in the minutes regarding either of those subjects.  So whilst you may well feel they are massively important, they don't appear to be taking up much of the time of this forum.  I'm also not sure what the forum itself can do that the individual groups aren't already doing as I assume the likes of Boro Fusion and Rainbow Reds are groups devoted to this stuff? I couldn't give a *** who the chairman endorses as a political party candidate.  It has absolutely nothing to do with me and it has absolutely nothing to do with this group.  He's entitled to vote for, endorse or think whatever he likes about politics, as is everyone else.  The fact that you've brought this up illustrates the political side of this and why the priorities probably won't be the average Boro fan unfortunately and of course why you'll be fine with that. It isn't a choice between supporting people in poverty or reducing the price of tickets.  One has nothing at all to do with the other and only one of them has anything to do with a Middlesbrough Fans Forum but you seem to be confused about which one it is.  Again, that's because of your own politics, which should have no place in a forum like this.     
    • Of course we can, not saying we can't, apologies that I misread your response and I was partly tackling CT's response too and maybe conflated both responses into one in mine. I was simply trying to tackle the idea that there is any triviality in tackling those things, the idea that they're not important for a supporters club to help deal with and really that ticket prices are more important than those things that have been tackled by the group. Of course I don't agree that the conversation is always in the direction I'd like too, thus why I'd like us to be able to be part of it and put our heads together and come up with a reasonable proposal that both explains why what we're doing is bad and examples of how we could be doing better, why the current status quo is considered among fans on here to be so unacceptable. As I said, without being part of the discussion, we can't affect anything. We might not affect it by being part of it either, we might get hounded out for holding a different stance but we certainly won't have a significant voice if we don't try to get involved to begin with.
