Recommended Posts

Surely this has to be the one! early goal and we will run amock!

 

3-0 up at half time!

 

Don't think Carayol will play either.

I'd like to see:

 

------------Steele------------

Varga--Woody--Gibson--Friend

-----Leadbitter--Butterfield----

Ledesma----Tomlin----Adomah

------------Kamara-----------

 

I'd rather give Butterfield a run of games to see whether he's worth keeping for next year.

Same with Gibson now that we're so far adrift, I'd rather he got game time than Omeruo.

 

And if Carayol has trained well and responded well he should return to the bench.

Excellent debut from MMC! Here's hoping you get to make some follow-up appearances.

 

As to our upcoming game against the "T'owels", I'm a lot less optimistic than a lot of folks on here.

 

Wednesday are in good form at the moment, having lost only 2 of their last 10 and winning 5. Boro have only lost twice as well, which is fairly impressive, but have drawn 5 of their last 10, winning only 3.

 

While their seasonal record shows they've drawn or lost more games than they've won, I think they're still on an upward curve and will be looking to balance their W column. A neutral goal difference (evened out by their 6-0 thrashing of Leeds) could work either way for us, showing their games tend to be fairly close.

 

WEDNESDAY: W8| D11| L10| F38| A38| Pts 36| Pos 15th

BORO: W9| D13| L10| F41| A36| Pts 40| Pos 13th

 

Last 6 Games

WEDNESDAY: D W W L L W

BORO: L D D D L D

 

 

Historically, the omens are not good for Boro, with T'owels winning the majority of their home fixtures against us. Stats, as usual, courtesy of middlesbrough-mad.co.uk:

 

Played: 48

 

Wednesday Wins: 32

Draws: 5

Boro Wins: 11

 

Wednesday Goals: 93

Boro Goals: 52

 

Biggest Wednesday Win: 5 - 0 (1904/05)

Biggest Boro Win: 1 - 5 (1909/10)

 

Last Wednesday Win: 2 - 0 (2012/13)

Last Boro Win: 1 - 3 (2009/10)

 

 

With a new guy between the sticks (whether Steele or Osorio) I'm a little concerned for our defence - especially at set pieces and with our new forward line-up still settling in. I predict a close, scrappy game which will probably be decided by a set piece or defensive error.

 

My Prediction: Wednesday 1 - 0 Middlesbrough

I was inspired by your use of "t'Owls".

 

Personally I won't complain if Wednesday do play like Towlie... ;)

For the last 6 matches our strike force have :D

 

Just look at Danny Graham for example...

Mighty Match Comments MMC!

 

Pretty confident we can win if we start with attacking players. 2 out of adomah, carayol and ledesma must play imo. Preferably the former 2. 2-0 to boro!

Playoff hopes are completely gone, but we still need to do as well as we can until the end of the season. We are easily capable of making the top ten for our second highest finishing position since relegation.

 

Omerou & woodgate were immense vs leeds and gibson needs to learn he isn't going to make stupid mistakes, costing us the match and then walk back into the starting Eleven the next time he's available.

 

I would go for a forward four of graham, carayol, tomlin and adomah

 

Steele back in goal (really really hope he plays a blinder for everyones sake)

 

A bench of: Dimi, gibson, morris, main, Williams, Hines, Ledesma

 

The rest should stay the same

 

As usual, The game has 0-0 written all over it. UTB

Talking points:

 

Are you going to the game?

 

What do you think the result will be?

 

How would you like to see us line up?

 

What is your favourite colour?

 

What is the capital of Assyria?

 

What is the air/speed velocity of an unladen swallow? (specify African or European please)

 

What is a goal?

 

Does Curtis Main have a fear of haircuts?

 

George Friend > Brad Pitt?

 

Is this too many questions?

 

 

I was going to get the opposition's view on it, but that forum is more impenetrable than Fort Knox...

1) Yes

2) 2-0 Boro

3)---------------Steele*----------------

Varga------Woody--Omeruo-----George <3

-------Grant-------------Chalolobah-----

Adomah--------Tomlin----------Carayol

---------------Graham-----------------

 

4) Red

5) A :P

 

5) the actual capitals are Assur and Niveneh

6) 24mph (European)

7)" goal

gəʊl/

noun

1.

(in football, rugby, hockey, and some other games) a pair of posts linked by a crossbar and typically with a net between, forming a space into or over which the ball has to be sent in order to score.

2.

the object of a person's ambition or effort; an aim or desired result.

 

8) Curtis Main fears nothing

9) Hmm. Toughy. Brad Pitt has banged a worldie (Angelina Jolie) in the forest ;) , but Friend banged in a worldie against Forest... And for that it's gotta be Gorgeous George all day long

10) No

I can not even use my normal catchphrase with this match but it is important that Boro score during this game and imo feel we need to score first to get any kind of result from our trip t'Sheffield

    • There are genuine reasons we can’t get movement for our top central defender targets.I hope we have a bigger net because all 3 could easily go down.
    • They're only loans til the end of this season, which is probably a dead rubber now. All we've done so far in terms of permanent signings is swap one goalkeeper for another.
    • Totally agree about the interest having to be there, and Gestede is one player where there probably isn't any interest. In terms of your first question, I was thinking more of players like Clayton (who I'd be sorry to see leave us, even though he's probably on higher wages than his recent contributions have justified). I'm sure lots of Championship teams would be interested in signing him, and the same with Saville, Johnson et al. Second question - as I've said, lots of clubs have money to spend in this window. Again, I agree they probably wouldn't want an injury-prone striker who's scored two goals in as many years, but the likes of Saville would have more appeal to clubs around our level. As for your third question - we've just signed a goalkeeper who only had six months left on his contract, but we didn't want to wait til the summer and sign him on a free. It happens, for a variety of reasons.
    • The window so far imo has been relatively successful. Shifted a high earner of wage bill, got a good fee for him and got a replacement for a quarter of that fee. Bought 2 players for the attacking 3rd of the pitch we needed who on early signs will make a significant contribution. Get even 1 CB in and i think all things considered it will have been a good window.
    • Don't take this as a dig. But their has to be an actual level of interest in those players from other clubs, plus you then have to have the feasibility of any potential transfer factored in. Use Gestede as an example; he is 31, allegedly he is on £30k per week, has a poor injury record and hasn't exactly pulled up any trees in the Championship with us (Ignoring his efforts with Blackburn 5 years ago). He also has a contract that runs out this summer and we are not looking to renew. What clubs in our division would actually want to sign him? Then factor in the 2nd question of who could afford him? Then as a 3rd question, if as a club you wanted him, but couldn't afford him, why not just wait until the summer and sign him on a free?
