Welcome to the first ever (as far as i know) hybrid match day thread, both me and Jamesp have contributed to this thread.


Venue: The Riverside Stadium

Date:Tuesday 11th March

Time: 7.45pm

Referee: Not Andy D'urso (I think)


Odds (via Paddy Power)


Middlesbrough - 11/8


Draw - 23/10


Nottingham Forest - 15/8


First scorer;


Lee Tomlin - 6/1

Kei Kamara - 6/1

Danny Graham - 6/1

Albert Adomah - 7/1


Jamie Patterson - 13/2

Simon Cox - 13/2

Darius Henderson - 13/2

Jamie Mackie - 8/1



The history of the opponents:








Soul depressing singer Jake Bugg is a famous son of Nottingham




How could we mention Nottingham and not mention that guy (Disclaimer: that might not actually be Robin Hood and DEFINITELY isn't me in my spare time :cool: )


This next guy isn't famous, but i believe he should be:





View from the other side;


Who is Boros biggest threat?

-Danny Graham. Chalobah is bound to have a good game


-Danny Graham will no doubt score & I suspect Chalobah & Leadbitter to do well against us if they play for obvious reasons.


-Anybody capable of running round and closing down.


-I'd say Adomah but he didn't play yesterday, I'm guessing he's injured. Leadbitter will run the midfield against us.


-That Carayol lad. Always looks dangerous in the clips I see of him. Forest will let him run at us as well, so he'll be good.


Albert Adomah:




Who is Forests main threat?


-Paterson. Abdoun if he decides to turn up. Also Majewski if we decide to play it on the floor. Unlikely though.


-Billy Davies - not to you though


-Paterson providing we let him run at defenders


-Jamie Patterson is our only real threat at the minute with so many of our midfield & back four out injured we've been almost relying entirely on him






Score predictions?






0-0 is about as optomistic I dare be at the moment.


5-0 Boro


Boro to sneak it 1-0 or 2-1


Now is the time to beat us


3-0 Boro


0-0, if we're lucky.


(they sound about as optimistic as we do :P )


Where will forest finish this season


-Should be in the playoffs. Probably, with our tactics, will be 7th.


-Fingers crossed the Championship








The club are giving the fans free travel for the game too so they should bring a decent following hopefully


Boroinbishop's Predicted Team:







Will we ever score again?


Can we keep another clean sheet at home?


Rock, Paper or scissors?


Also Jamesp wanted to add this one the end but there was over the Max. amount of images on it so here it is:

Don't you find that there is to large a disconnect between your CMs and your AMs?


CM(D) play really deep. Like, almost DM deep at times.

Also reading that Forest thread, they really are negative.


They sound exactly like we've sounded lately.

They are negative, but very funny with it. Much funnier than that Ipswich lot


Yeah, they were awful, i went on their boards being nice and friendly and all they did was look to provoke me, was a terrible forum layout too

Keep the same team as Saturday with the exception of Adomah in for Ledesma.


Few interesting stats


Dimi has 100% clean sheet record in the league games he's started this season


Boro have won 100% of games that Danny Graham has scored in this season.


Steele has never seen defeat from the bench this season.


Boro have scored an average of 2 goals per game since Higgy's appointment of assistant coach.


Muzzy has improved 200% since being dropped then brought back. (Only fair to assume the same will happen to Adomah)


Can't see past a Boro victory here

Hopefully the confidence gained from breaking our goal drought can push us on for a strong finish to the season now.


I'd agree with bringing Albert back into the team, I'm not going to pretend to be the most analytical football supporter but for me you've got to play your best players. Hopefully the public telling off will spur Albert on in the same way it has Muzzy.

Carayol had an injury when he came off on Saturday so he might not be available v Forrest unfortunately. Without him or Adomah on either wing then we surely put in a limp performance like we did v Leeds with Kamara and Main on the wings.

It was his hip flexor and he expected to be fine for Tuesday, fingers crossed he is.

    • I pulled up the Echo on Fry’s rating and Scott Wilson said that Fry got pulled at half time. Didn’t really offer any additional insight into his reasons for giving a 5/10. I thought Fry was very good albeit his distribution was a little ‘impatient’ at times.
    • Is it not more Fry has told him he cant play there with his performances in the pre season games and cup game on Wednesday? He has been given a decent chunk of minutes to prove aptitude in the role.
    • I think Wilder certainly prefers Lenihan probably because he’s his signing. That’s his prerogative. It all depends on whether the club are happy to let Fry leave. I don’t imagine Fry will be happy sitting on the bench but I don’t imagine Wilder will want to lose, who he see’s as, his back up centre half.
    • He’s definitely gone to ground this season a lot more than he was doing last season. Even when his attacking play tailed off last season I thought he did very well defensively. He didn’t dive in and he was very difficult for any opposition to beat. Not sure why he’s diving in so much this season but hopefully he gets back to how he defended previously.    much like people are calling for a bit of patience with Lenihan after his not great start for us I think Jones deserves that too. Not really sure why some fans dig him out so often. 
    • Wilder as a problem, both Fry and Lenahan can't play left side CB , I think Fry has told him he's not playing there , he's refusing hence the cold shoulder , you can't blame him , his form would dip , and from being one of the better CB in the league to an average one, with less of a chance of a  premiership.move,  Is a move on now.?
