Boro V Burnley (A) 1-0

Recommended Posts

The Eternal Match

 

Like many other Saturday's since and before

The hopes of many come together wanting to see their team score

"United we stand and divided we fall"

They did not realise this before the first kick of the ball

 

"It's only a game" and so it went ahead

No-one really realising just how many were dead

The tradgedy soon unfolded right before our eyes

And the realisation that so many had said their final "goodbyes"

 

"Forever in our hearts" are the events of that day

"We all stand together" many other fans were heard to say

Is there more to life than this we should ask in a humble tone

Liverpool............"you will never walk alone"

 

Words and thoughts Alan Thomas Middlesbrough FC fan

 

 

Ok match details as follows

 

Saturday 12th April 2014 Kick off 3.07pm

Turf Moor Burnley.

 

Without doubt THE MOST IMPORTANT GAME OF THE SEASON SO FAR...............if you are a Burnley fan:)

 

Yes Derby have to fail to win but beat The Boro and Burnley are promoted to the PL since goodness knows when???

 

Will they be rubbing their hand in delight knowing that we could very well have a defence that could be very light weight in terms of players caused by red cards and injuries?

 

Burnley have done remarkably well this season and have been real steady eddies all term and I can not begrudge them promotion because they do deserve it and I feel sure that the autospot is theirs for the taking.

 

But I am selfish in all things Boro and I would love to see us being party poopers for at least another game and to be honest I want us to continue our recent winning form as long as possible as I have happier weekends when we win.

 

Ok my current sequence of doing match day threads will come to an end at some point and the last time it did was the Bolton away game when they got their late equaliser after we had been 2 up so I am expecting the same to be honest.

 

We will be no push over for Burnley and I am sure SD knows that if they are to achieve win they will have to work for it.

 

So usual talking points.

 

Just who will be in defence?

Can we be spoilsports?

Will I get to do 5 games on the trot (not achieved at all this season)

Will this be a well posted thread?:D

 

"I thank you"

Congrats to DS on getting to do 4 match threads on the bounce...would be nice if he could carry on to the end of the season. Great Hillsborough tribute too! Would give you another +1 for that, but you've already got so many... ;)

 

However, if you're a stat fan, the omens aren't good. Quite apart from Burnley's excellent form this season, historically they usually beat Boro at home. The hosts have lost just 4 times all season and once in their last 10 games. They also have a very healthy goal difference. I fear with a weakened defence, Boro's good run will come to an abrupt halt this weekend.

Can't see us keeping a clean sheet at Turf Moor now, we'll have to score at least 2 to win

Maybe because he's already been suspended once this year? Otherwise I'm not sure.

Why has Gibbo got a 2 match ban?

 

because its his second red card of the season i think

Beautiful DS! :)

 

I reckon this could be closer than people might think. We're right up there with the form teams. Although granted, not doing quite as well as Burnley...

 

I'll go for a 1-1 draw with us going 1 up and Burnley equalising in the second half.

    • The issue with Round being asked to be DoF then when he got up here for talks, being offered Assistant Manager, anyone know what happened? Was the DoF role never on the table, mixed communication or what?! Seems so odd but gives a glimmer of hope than we might try and fill that role in the summer. 
    • give your head a shake man FFS.....
    • Bielsa is employing undercover spies again!, I did wonder why derby started crumbling again. 
    • Have to start the same team surely, even thought Johnson looked slightly better than the last 2 games in that last one. In terms of a prediction, Warnocks got 2 victory's and 2 losses so far....time for his first draw with us I think, ill go 1-1 Spence power driver late on rescuing a point for us. 
    • I don't think Warnock will have any effect on our scouting or recruitment. Pulis certainly didn't and yet he was publicly declaring himself as tasked with not wasting Gibson's money, it was just as shoddy under his tenureship as it's ever been in recent years. Warnock will recruit players for his style of play and we'll be left with them when he goes. If we're going to play the way he wants us to play, we should go for that in the long-term, not for just some short-term 'rebuild' that we have to rebuild again in a year's time.
