Boro V Birmingham City 3-1

Recommended Posts

 

Page 3?

 

I could hold my own on page 3 :heart:

 

hope you are holding your own would hate to see it loose

 

 

Surely it has to be George Friend on page 3...unless they can persuade any of the WAGs to do it? :D :P

 

 

In spite of Birmingham's good away record, my money's on Boro to make it a hat-trick of wins. Not likely to be a great performance and Brum will make it difficult as they go in search of the final few points to guarantee safety. Expect it will be similar to the Derby game, which wasn't exactly a thriller, by all accounts.

 

My Prediction: Middlesbrough 1 - 0 Birmingham

 

Lee Tomlin should be on page 3 with his moobs


I will go with 1-0 Boro too.


Luke williams to score

Birmingham's last 5 games have been goalfests compared to ours and they have a good knack of always knicking one goal at least. They have more to play for than us with Barnsley, Blackpool and Charlton all at home tonight they'll no doubt be looking over their shoulder with a little bit of trepidation as they are not safe yet!

 

I think Birmingham will score, it's just a case of whether we have enough in us to score 2 to win this game.

We've got league positions to play for, and with teams above us so closely placed on points there's no reason we can't finish 7th or 8th instead of 13th or 14th. Could be the difference between attracting better players or not for next season at the very least.

 

This is going to be the second league game I've been able to get to this season, and second in a row too after seeing the Derby win, so I'm hoping for a good performance under the lights tonight.

 

Don't forget to fill your boots at the club shop too, Previous 2 seasons shirts are £5 a pop and shorts are £3... Ideal if anyone out there needs a 5-a-side team strip :P


Also, just thinking, the club haven't used their available quota of home cheaper ticket offers this season have they? Anyone reckon they might slip one in before the end of the season?

 

With the news about the reduced price shirts, would anyone be willing to pick me up a couple of shirts for my children and post them out if I send you the money by PayPal??

 

My daughter turns 3 in a couple of weeks and I'd live to ruin her life by keeping boro in the family. And my 16 month old would look great in a juninho one!! PM me if you could oblige. Thanks.

Looking forward to tonight, I haven't had chance to see any of the January signings play live, apart from on TV.

 

Hoping for the same line-up as Derby, injury permitting. 2-0 to Boro.

Like that team, surprised JB is back in though, would have thought ledesma would have started

 

Good to see woody back on the bench anyway

Ledesma wouldn't start because he's not an AMC really. We're clearly really pushing the "play Jacob high up the pitch" thing though.

 

Tomlin will get another 30 minute run out, play a few good balls but nothing will happen and people will continue calling him poor. I really feel for him, just like I felt for JB when he wasn't getting the game time.

Tomlin is ***. If it was up to me he wouldn't even make the bench.

Good thing you have nothing to do with team selection then. ;)

    • What's everyone been drinking during lockdown then? Personally i'm into craft beer, but because my usual bottle shop is closed and we've all been travel restricted, i've been limited to what I can get from the supermarkets. Luckily, Tesco have raised their craft beer game over the past couple of months and they've got some cracking beers that you'd easily pay over a fiver for a 330ml can in a bottle shop, but none in Tesco are more than £3.50. So far i've drank: Evil Twin - Wake up and smell the Gose: Breakfast gose with blueberries and salt. Really weird sounding, even weirder smelling and tasting. Sounds like it should be awful but I've had three cans of this and I still don't know if I really like it or not, haha. Brave of Tesco to stock this, though. BrewDog USA vs Evil Twin - Roaster Coaster: Nitro Imperial Vietnamese Coffee Stout. A simply incredible stout, but given the two breweries involved it shouldn't be a surprise. Brewdog already do two great stouts in Jet Black Heart and Zombie Cake, this is sweeter than either of those (well we are talking Vietnamese Coffee here!) and the addition of nitro makes this such a smooth ride. Brilliant and more canned stouts should be nitro'd IMO. Salt Beer Factory - Ikat DDH DIPA: An incredible DDH DIPA, fruity and smooth, best of the bunch Vocation - Breakfast Club 2.0: They did a collab with Yeastie Boys last year which was a blueberry & Belgian waffle pastry stout, that was great but this solo release ramps up the fruitiness and is even smoother. Cracking stuff. Vocation - Hop, Skip & Juice: Superb NEIPA, billed as a tropical Pale Ale, but they're not fooling anyone. This is juicy (duh) and smooth with a soft bitter finish. Magic Rock/Salt Beer Factory - Ripe Times: Two superb Northern breweries come together on this NEIPA and it packs a punch with the bitter hops but they soon give way to the tropical fruit smoothiness that NEIPAs are known for. Was worried about this as I don't like my beers to be too high on the IBU scale but this was very, very good. Vocation - Love & Hate: It's an NEIPA from one of my favourite breweries and again, they just happen to be from the North! Sadly this is a bit too bitter for my tastes, although it does have a very distinct mango flavour. This weekend i'll also be having Northern Monk's Tropical World, which is a tropical smoothie Milkshake IPA, and a bottle of Franziskaner Weissbier Naturtrub, which is a Hefeweizen. I've only ever had one Hefeweizen before and that was from an American brewery, but it was very good so it'll be interesting to see how a genuine German one compares 🙂 NB: It's occurred to me that I should probably attach a glossary of sorts to this post, for those who don't know much about beer beyond Carling and Fosters existing 😛 Gose - Sour beer, German in origin. Brewed with salt water to give it a distinct taste. DIPA - Double India Pale Ale. Basically a stronger version of an IPA, usually around 7-10% ABV DDH - Double Dry Hopped. Adding more hops to the brewing process at a later stage, or using double the amount of hops than you would in standard brew. Makes the beer more bitter but most brewers balance this with fruity flavours (which I like) NEIPA - New England India Pale Ale. Yes, this term makes no sense when you think about it. Basically it's a style of IPA where the beer is aggressively hopped, or unfiltered, giving it a cloudy, hazy appearance. My favourite style at the moment, even though the market peaked around a year ago. IBU - International Bitterness Units. The amount of hops in a beer. The higher the rating, the more bitter the beer will be. Most DIPAs are around 70-100 IBUs. To compare, a bottle of Budweiser is about 5-10 IBUs. Milkshake IPA - IPA brewed with lactose, gives the beer a very smooth, "milkshake" like texture. Often not as sweet as you'd imagine. Hefeweizen - German "white" beer brewed with wheat instead of malted barley. Next to no bitterness and usually has tones of banana and cloves. (I did originally consider making this post a separate thread in the off-topic section, but figured it probably wouldn't gather enough interest. However i'm always up for talking about beer so if anyone wants to move this there or start their own thread, i'd be fine with that!)
