Boro Badger

Boro V Huddersfield (A) 2-2

Recommended Posts

Perfect summation of both the match and our season BB :( For what its worth, I'll do the usual boring stat stuff...mainly to kill some time.

 

Nice work AnglianRed filling in some of the gaps in Boro Badger Issue #7!

 

I don't think my opening post has helped, but this has got to be the quietest match day thread ever.

 

Don't feel too bad...its early days yet. Plus the season is winding down and there is very little to play for. ;)

 

Come Friday afternon, things should be a bit livelier.

 

You mean 3 days after the game is finished? :P

 

Um...yes? :blush: :s

 

That would be a real sign of just how much interest in Boro has declined. :D

Got a quid on us to win and Butters to score. 10/1.

I'll stick my neck out and say nil nil.

 

I like that - very funny. We still have to be careful of melt down and relegation, however remote. Agree that Luke Williams should be given a chance, if only 20 minutes from the bench. He has to be worth a better shout than Kamara who was woeful on Saturday.

 

we are due a win , and we are not playing badly in many respects so I'm going to be the optimist and say 3:1 to Boro.

2-0 boro. Tomlin to score both.

Don't care who starts up top, doesn't really matter anyway.

Would like to see Tomlin start behind the attacker, Chalobah and Buttterfield as the holding midfielders, allowing butters to spread the butter across the toast.

Had a quick peeky-boo at the stats. Huddersfield have basically done a Boro this season without any of the maligned optimism and malevolent aggression that surrounds the darky smog-filled streets of Middlesbrough every season. They've been permanently stuck in mid-table this season like a tacky fridge magnet you bought on holiday for your nan in Corfu.

 

Going by previous form and other results I would say it will go several ways;

 

1.) 0-0 and the entire region of West Yorkshire is sucked into a vortex with 13,000 people exhaling really loudly all at once.

2.) We somehow nick a dodgy 1-0 win after Adomah smashes one in from 35 yards and then gets promptly benched for the next six games in favour of Curtis Main.

3.) Bottle-cap scores a hat-trick and we get drubbed 5-1.

4.) Dodgy penalty. Dodgy red-card. And we lose 1-0. (My personal favourite.)

5.) Karanka suddenly snaps and decides to play 4-4-2 and we play out a classic 3-3 thriller.

    • I would go with following Pears Shotton Harold Friend Howson Paddy Wing Tav Coulson Britt Fletch Not against Spence but we need to get back to being strong and that back 3 has good experience and 2 out the 3 are naturally centre backs. So hopefully that offers the solidity we need Harsh on Sav but i think we need Tav in team as he carries the ball well from CM towards the strikers. And the link between midfield n forwards of late has been non existent. I deliberated whether to play Ravel or Britt with Fletch. Gone with Britt in hope of extra firepower. I am hoping Tavs inclusion means creativity of Ravel is less needed. Nmecha n Rudy not done much of late. I accept neither has Britt but hoping thats down to him feeling his way back after injury. For all his faults his record in this league is good and i hope he can find the form he showed towards in last 6 games of last season where he went on a run.
    • I’m going to work it out tomorrow! It’s not dead.. 
    • More than anything I hope we win. Not sure of what team he is going to put out or what formation he is going to play and I suppose it doesn't really matter if we get 3 points. It has been a complete waste of a season for me. I can normally see the positives in most things, even Pulis, but we just seem to be drifting into ever increasing mediocrity. 
    • Playoffs here we come 😜
    • 3 points    1-3 to The Boro!
