Boro Vs Manchester City (A) (FA Cup) 2-0

Recommended Posts

I'm counting this as a preseason game, buildup and practice for next season :) Will be disappointed if we don't give it a good go out there. If a struggling Leicester team can beat these chumps 1-0 then surely we can

 

No guts no glory :)

Does anyone know if their going to sell tickets on the day (home end) i got the impression going on their website that they would only sell tickets to man city fans who had purchased tickets before. I only ask because me, 3 derby fans and Leicester fan want to go to the game.

Really concerned that Without Kalas, whitehead may struggle for pace against City. Maybe the weak link that opens the gates.

I reckon we'd probably sit tight and deep against City and look to counter Armster, plus he'll have Adomah tracking back to cover.

Ok I am not expecting a win by any means and perhaps if we are going out then this game will do as any.

 

All I want to see is a spirited and hard workman like performance from the lads that could just could take the game to a replay.

 

Highly unlikely I know but I am sure that come the end of the day all of us will be very proud Boro supporters once again. The cup draw gods are never really kind to us in terms of having a home tie against PL opposition but we shall have our heads held high and no way will Man City fans get the 8-1 result they are all secretly hoping for.

 

One off anything could happen and they are not unbeatable and certainly their team will not have worked together as much as the one AK will field and I do expect the strongest team available for this game.

 

With regards to Deano, well apart from his sending off he HAS NOT let Boro down when he has played this season

he hasn't, but neither has he faced such high quality pacey attack as he will on Saturday in the RB role.

 

I think if we sit back and invite them on, we've lost it, if we play our normal game and try and take it to them a bit more, then we've a chance. I don't think they are infallible by any means, a number of teams have pushed them hard this year.

Deano for all his good points would be hung out to dry at right back against city. But if weve no one else so be it

And i mentioned on another thread but id keep the same team apart from putting vossen in. I think it would tell us a lot about wether he would be worth the money if we went up

We could be without a right back for the Man City game but could have 3 available for our next championship game at Brentford...

 

Kalas might not be risked this weekend so that should make sure he is available next league game.

 

AK said he hopes to have Fredericks available for the Brentford game.

 

Nsue will be on hes way back to Boro if Equatorial Guinea fail to beat Gabon on Sunday.

The Man City players are flying back in to Manchester from Abu Dhabi on Saturday and are due to arrive 7am... There players are going to be knackered..... Absolutely bonkers.

    • I couldn't watch the game (sounds like I was lucky with that). Just watched the highlights and it looked like a fair result. We created one and half chance the entire game and thats just not good enough. Awful. Briliant header by Fletcher though 🙂 
    • Yeah I agree with that, he's absolutely miles away from that level. I think Fry has looked good in the Championship but I don't think he's set the world alight either.  If I was a Premier league scout I'd be happy to buy him but I'd ideally want to see him develop at Championship level on loan for another couple of seasons.   
    • what a doyle, I posted week 8 and 9 but forgot week 7   deserve to be bottom for that alone
    • I watch Man City closely, as my best friend is a long standing fan. City might have sent a scout or two to watch Dael,  but I doubt they'd try to fix their flawed defence with a largely unproven and injury-hit Championship youngster. Unless their plan was to sign him and then loan him out for a couple of years.   A sale-and-loanback deal might be palatable, if we reinvested the money in players who would actually suit the type of football Woody claims to want to play. It's obvious which deficiencies in our squad need to be addressed, and quickly.
