Boro Vs Charlton Athletic 3-1

Recommended Posts

I think an early goal in this game is crucial for us, if we score first 20 minutes, there is only one result IMO.

 

I think we need to be smart with our selection tomorrow (which im sure AK will).

 

I would like to see us make use of Forshaw in these next two games and possibly think about resting GL on Tuesday.

 

Boro 3-0 (Kike, Vossen and Bamford - The holy trinity)

AK should start Bamford and Vossen up front like he did against Derby at home, The work rate and pressure both of them put on defenders will make the Charlton defense make mistakes all game, Especially Bikey.

Might just go to this game. It's the first time I've been in the north east with a home game on at the same time In years.

Been thinking a lot about this game. We should start strong if we get 2-3 up start rotating the busy players like Grant, Gorgeous and Ads Clayton. I would keep Reach for Blackpool and choose any two of Paddy, Jelle and Kike upfront. So for me (obviously not Ayala for the charlton game)

 

--------------------Dimi-----------------

Fredricks--Ken----Gibbo--Friend

----------Clayton-----Grant---------

Paddy-------Tommo-----Adomah

--------------Kike----------

 

With a view to the Blackpool game

 

-----------------Dimi-----------

Fredricks--Ayala--Gibbo--Husband

-------------Forshaw--Grant-------

Adomah------ Tommo-----Reach

------------Vossen----------

 

The bench will consist of the rotated players from each match plus

 

Mejias

Woody

Leadesma

Deano

With this busy schedule, When does Wildschut get a chance or does he? I would like him to get some more game time even if its 20/30mins here and there, I think hes pace in the last 20+mins of some games is a weapon we could use.

Feels like we're in for a big score in this one. Maybe should play a very attacking team again a weak Charlton, with Adomah rested, as he is perhaps the one player who hasn't really impressed me lately.

 

Dimi, Freddy, Ayala, Gibson, Friend, Leadbitter, Clayton, Tomlin, Bamford, Vossen, Kike.

 

3-0.

If I'm attending then everyone prepare for 0-0 and the worst game of football ever seen

That charltonlife forum makes for some grim reading, the consensus seem to predict they're going to park the bus and try not to let too many goals through (one chap is predicting a cricket score).

 

Let's hope for a bit of ruthless finishing from Bamford et. al. No games are easy, but professional game from us should help us see out the win, 2-0 from me.

 

Edit: Can't really see Bournemouth, Derby or Ipswich dropping points either this weekend. Brentford with a tough game away at Elland road though. League table pretty much unchanged come Monday?

From what I have read this should be an easy win but of course it doesn't always work like that...

 

Scroll down and read... Their man in the know - Richard Cawley, South London Press.....

Reading that and the Charlton forum this should be one of those games were hammer a team.

 

UTB.

For me, the immediate concern is getting as big a gap as possible between us and the likes of Norwich/Brentford/Blackburn/Watford (the latter two play each other tomorrow), cement our place in the top 6 and then we can concentrate on the top 2.

I genuinely believe that this week is massive, and we could come out if it with a few teams really starting to break away.

Just to add to that point, depending on how tomorrow goes, Tuesday night could see every team in the top 7 playing each other, except us, who are playing bottom.

Well we have a mini forum meet up going on as Bib will meet up with Batmalan and myself (plus Daniel) for a drink and watching the game.

 

Anyone else?

    • I don't think anyone thinks the performance was good. I'm just not putting much stock into a game I expected us to lose for the reasons we lost it. The best I can say is we tried to do something different to how we played against Millwall, the last time we played a team like this. Between the two games, I think yesterday's loss of points was more down to individual performances than the tactical battle which is a positive for the tactics as much as it's a negative for some of the individuals in the team. Maybe next time, if we pick the right players, we'll get something more out of the game. It's early days, we can be forgiven right now for thinking we have room to experiment and not be too worried whether it goes right or wrong. That's all part of the learning curve.
    • Same story in Tampa  Buccs 18 up at half time .. Now only 3 up and Giants have the egg I hope it will end well, like your Bills 😉
    • Bills completely dominated the Bengals for the entire first half and somehow only scored 14 points. 250+ yards to 77. Gave up 17 unanswered in the 2nd half before a 4th quarter TD drive and a game sealing pick get us the 21-17 win. 3-0 but we should have been 30+ up at half time.
    • Packers now 3 wins in 3. Great start to the campaign. At least they didn't let me down. 😂
