I refuse to believe that the top 6 will stay as it is. One team always has a late surge, it always happens. :P

Playoffs are out of reach long ago. It just makes you wish we had sorted ourselves out long before this, we are a work in progress though and if we give karanka a full summer we will be promoted next year

Definitely not even dreaming about the play-offs yet. We'd need to go on a 5-game unbeaten run before I start to think its a realistic possibility.

 

Forest are on a 3-game losing streak and will no doubt be looking to stop the rot. They've drawn as many games as Boro and only lost 7 times this season. They also have a healthy goal difference, despite their recent poor run. Home advantage should help Boro and a win is a definite possibility, after the confidence-boosting result against Ipswich, but a draw wouldn't be a bad result either.

 

BORO: W10| D13| L11| F43| A37| Pts 43| Pos 13th

FOREST: W14| D13| L7| F54| A40| Pts 55| Pos 5th

 

Last 6 Games

BORO: D D L D L W

FOREST: D W D L L L

 

Historically, this fixture usually ends either in a home win or a draw, so chances are we will get something from this game. Stats courtesy of www.middlesbrough-mad.co.uk

 

Played: 35

 

Boro Wins: 13

Draws: 17

Forest Wins: 5

 

Boro Goals: 51

Forest Goals: 38

 

Biggest Boro Win: 5-2 (1923-24)

Biggest Forest Win: 1-4 (1954-55)

 

Last Boro Win: 1-0 (2012-13)

Last Forest Win 0-3 (1992-93 FA Cup) | 3-4 (1988-89)

 

 

My Prediction: Middlesbrough 1 - 1 Nottingham Forest

The play offs may seem a million miles away at the moment but if we our next 3 games then we will be back in the mix with it all to play for.

I'm not going to say that we will make the playoffs as there are probably too many teams in front of us, but if, IF, we win our next 3-4 games on the trot (like p_mards is probably trying to say:) ) I think we will certainly be in a position that will make the run in very interesting.

The Championship is coming to the time of the season where the good teams battling for automatic promotion and play offs start feeling massive pressure and throw points away that on paper are as good as guaranteed. QPR have done it, Nottingham Forrest also and Derby so if they continue and other teams follow suit as will happen then if teams well below the play offs, like us, that hit form and get some momentum then the gap to make up wont be as huge as it looks currently.

It can all change in the space of a week especially when you have 3 games in 7 days. A quick turn of 9 points and the teams above picking up only 3/4 points and you've had a 5/6 point swing in your favour.

 

2 midweek fixtures this month make doing such a thing a real possibility.

 

We should be looking to get at Forest who are in a tough moment at the minute, is Davies not allowed in the dugout? We take 3 points off Forest and who knows, maybe we could put a little run together at just the right time.

 

As the Mackems say.....Dare to Dream.

To make the playoffs we'd probably need to win either nine or ten of our remaining matches. It's not impossible but seeing as we just lost to Sheff Wed and prior to Saturday had gone seven games without even scoring a goal, it would seem to be highly unlikely. If we'd managed to win just two of the games on that poor run we'd still be in the mix with some work to do but I don't think we are now sadly.

couple of dreamers on here :) nice to see the positivity. i checked the forest forum and thought if you took the post and put them on here it would look like the forum a few months ago!!

 

i think 2-0 again with graham and muzzy on the scoresheet. 2 on the bounce and a bit of momentum could get a few teams looking over their shoulder. its harder to saty in the play off spots then it is to get into them so a late charge and sneaking in isn't out of the question.

Its kind of what I was trying to say as well ;)

 

We need to go on at least a small unbeaten run (say win 3, draw 2) before we can realistically see whether we have a chance of making a push for the play-offs.

 

We've just ended a poor 7-game run, but as they say, one swallow does not a summer make. If we can pick up where we left off on Saturday, then thats fine by me... :cool:

    • These Championship games are coming thick & fast, next up are high flying Swansea City With not much resting time between games NW won’t allow his players to feel sorry for themselves after Saturdays away defeat to Huddersfield, when we were totally in control then just fell away, he will tell the player’s  to dust themselves down & hopefully, a repeat performance of our last home game & make amends for Saturdays defeat With 2 defeats in the last 3 games the Swansea fixture is certainly a really tough fixture to try & get things up & running & go on another unbeaten run, Neil Warnock will certainly have his players pumped up for this game There are a few headaches, a possible concern injury with the player of the season for me, Dijksteel, while he has as striker options upfront to consider with Assombalonga, Akpom or Watmore??? It's Swansea 23rd visit on Teesside, with Boro winning 12, drawing 5 & losing 5, scoring 57 & conceding 31 Our 1st home win against Swansea was a 7-1 thrashing, we’ve had a couple of 6-2 wins & in 2 games, both George Camsell & Brian Clough scored 4 goals in one game past them Our last home victory against Swansea was a 3-0 win in our PL relegation season   Selected players who have represented both teams Bill Harris Swansea born he signed for his hometown club but didn’t start a game, he later went to Hull & in 1954 signed for the Boro for £15k where he went on to play 378 games, scoring 72 goals, he became our main penalty taker at one time, he scored twice against his home town club, one from the spot At one time Phil Boersma ‪ was our record signing £72k, playing 47 games between ‪1975 -77‬, scoring 3 goals. Later for Swansea in season ‪78-79 playing 18 games, scoring 1 goal Another one of our record signings, John Mahoney ‪costing £90k played 77 league games between ‪1977 -79‬, scoring 1 league goal, at Swansea he played 110 games, again scoring league 1 goal Dimi Konstantopoulos Boro ‪‪2013-2019 98‬ games, Swansea on loan from Coventry in 2008 4 games Marvin Emnes played 141 games for Boro, scoring 24 goals between ‪‪2008-14‬, he had 2 loan spells at Swansea 2010 & ‪‪20140 11‬ games 3 goals, signed ‪‪2014-17‬ where he played 19 games, zero goals Danny Graham 21 goals in 62 appearances for Swansea.  Boro 2 spells, he broke through in to the 1st team in ‪‪2004-2007‬ scoring 1 goals v Coventry in 15 appearances & came back on loan in 2014 playing 18 games scoring 6 goals Connor Roberts 4 games for the Boro, Swansea to date, 101 games, one goal Kyle Naughton played 15 games for the Boro, at Swansea to date, 177 games, 5 goalsF   Facts of the day Dave Currie made Boro debut away to Swansea, when coming on as sub, replacing Dave Thomas for our final 1st division (now PL), away game in our 81-82 relegated season Swansea were our last FAC opponents at Ayresome Park when they dumped us out of the FAC 3rd round in January1995   Blast from the past   
    • Regarding Valdes. Are we really discussing the ability of a goalkeeper who has literally won every trophy possible and clocked up nearly 400 appearances for a team that was probably the best club side seen by an entire generation? The regular and quite ridiculous argument directed at Valdes was he had little to do for Barca such was they dominance. Do people genuinely think to be a keeper at the best club on the planet for as long as he was, that all you need to do is be able stand between two posts? Do people know how hard it is to even become a professional footballer at a half decent level never mind do it at the very elite level for as long as he did and we are discussing if he was a good keeper? Was he as good for as he was Barca? Well obviously not. But no player is going to be as good as for Boro as they would for Barca. You look better with better players around you. That is a simple fact.
    • Depends what you're using really. You shouldn't have any problems using a computer, or laptop which is by far the best option. However, if your using a phone it might not be up to the job, You need at least 4 GBs of ram for a decent stream, so if you're using a phone, it's time to upgrade.
