Boro Vs Charlton Athletic 3-1

Recommended Posts

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.


The next couple of league games really can set us up for an positive end to the season. If we win the 2 games we will be in the promotion places (with Derby playing Bournemouth Tuesday) it's games like this we need a Brentford type result (If need be, not playing to our potential but grinding out the victory)


The chasing pack also play each other looking at the next couple of games and this should start to open a an even bigger gap


Watford v Blackburn

Brentford v Watford

Norwich V Wolves


Confident we will be in a much better position going into the Birmingham game than we currently stand

The NeXT two games, and Charlton at home in particular, are the kind of games where we need to put a few axtra goals on our goal difference account. Both Derby and Bournemouth have better scores than us (+2 and +6) respectively so we need to add a few extra. The top is soooo tight and we simply have to make sure that we keep up on the goals front, and that's virtually an extra point.

Right great opportunity to put this bloody manager of the month curse behind us, and in Aitor I definitely trust with that.


i would like to see



Fredericks Omeruo Gibson Friend

Clayton Leadbitter

Adomah Tomlin Reach



Harsh on Vossen but i'd like to see Bamford central as well as pace on the wings with Tomlin in the hole to try and unlock a defense that will come here to sit back and take a point.


I really want to see Kike start but Bamford is above him in the pecking order at the minute and besides I think Kike will start against Blackpool.


3-0 Tomlin, Gibson & Kike.

Thanks guys. :)


Actually I was a little bit grateful for the Pool news tbh. It was my first time in an actual studio and I was really nervous so it was a good way to get used to the feel for the show. Looking forward to my next appearance haha.

    • The Boro are unbeaten in the last 4 games & on the back of a 1-0 win at home to Reading travel to South Wales to take on recently relegated Cardiff City who sit below the Boro in the championship table on goal difference, there record is the same as the Boro’s so far, played 7, won 2, drew 3, lost 2 One of the bookies favourites to return to the PL Cardiff have found it anything but easy, they’ve had a busy summer in the transfer market bringing in up to 10 players, including our very own Aden Flint a big money transfer Cardiff are without a win in the last 3 games after starting the season with 2 wins & a draw from their opening 3 home fixtures, this will be another testing time for team  But its about the Boro, how Jonathan Woodgate sets us up, formation we play too, Luton & Bristol City away we played fast attacking football though & IMHO, a win was what we deserved, a draw is what we got in both games Will Woodgate to stick with the team that started against Reading?  Will Woodgate keep with Shotton, or bring in Ayala to partner Dael Fry?
