Boro Vs Blackpool (Away) 2-1

Recommended Posts

Can't use the pitch as an excuse, Blackpool are playing on the same one. If we play well we will win comfortably, but we haven't done that in a while, which is far more important than whether the pitch is a wee bit muddy or not

 

Its not just the 3 points though on Tuesday.. A pitch like that can easily cause freak injury's.

Pitch will be a factor. As this will be the 16th time Blackpool have played on it we have yet to play on it at all.... The one thing to our advantage is that AK always has a plan B and if necessary a plan C

I didn't say it won't be a factor. But if we lose it won't be because of a bad pitch, it will be because we put in a sub par performance against a very poor side

I would go for:

 

Dimi

Kalas

Gibson

Ayala

Husband

Whitehead/Forshaw

Clayton

Wildschutt

Vossen

Reach

Kike

 

I think that team is probably the most suites we have to playing on the battlefield whilst also rotating for fitness. Friend and Leadbittes would be good as they are battlers but this might be time to let them recoup. Bamfors is our biggest threat but not sure if he is up for a gritty match like this. Wildschut wont exactly be sharp but from what I have seen of him he looks a bit of a beast so probably suits chasing balls over the top/ attaxking the far post when reach crosses in. Puttinf players on opposite wings to their feet could play into Blackpools hands if they try to make this game a scrap. Not sure the bobbly surface would suit Tomlin hence Vossen behind Kike.

 

If Karanka manages to rotate, we get the three points, and the squad comes through unscathed i will be extremely happy.

I can see by counting the dashes you copied my guess at defence / midfield! But I think the wingers came out wrong when you pasted :)

Whilst yes it would be good to give lots of fringe players some time on the pitch we me remember this is a must win game.

I wasn't able to glean the full details from reading that but it looks absolutely appalling. Just another reason why we love and treasure Gibson, imagine if we had an absolute toolbag like Karl Oyston in charge?!

 

basically from what I can tell is some stuff was said on there that Oyston/Blackpool didn't like.

 

The website won't divulge the identity of the poster that made the comments, and as such Oyston is taking action against the site itself because by law a website can be held responsible for what is said by it's anonymous members.

 

Really really stupid move on Oystons part though.

Oh and with the state that pitch is in, I expect our most physical team playing. Something like -

 

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

Kalas----Ayala------Gibson---George

----------Grant-------Deano----------

Wildschut------Tomlin----------Reach

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

 

There will be a lot of long balls, a lot of fouls, a lot of scrapping and a routine demolition of a sorry Blackpool team on the worst pitch probably in the country. Championship level Sunday league stuff.

Thats what the pitch looked like before their last game, will be tough to play much football on that. Will be an awful scrappy game but surely our quality will show through

We've got to play Friend. He'll be used to conditions like that, having grown up on a farm and all...

We'll win, I don't doubt that. It will probably be like the Charlton game. We won't steam roller them, but I am sure that we will have enough quality to see them off. Especially as a top-2 poisition i guranteed with 3 points. There will be some rotation and the players coming in will have a point to prove.

 

2-0 to the Boro with Kike and Forshaw scoring.

    • Even with no rumours today, I still back Warnock to bring in players he would actually use for his style and system. I’ve just watched (I know late to the party) Sunderland til I die season 2 and their January window episode.   Firstly, It amazes me how the chairman splurged money on Will Grigg when he could have used that extra money to get Maja to stay. But secondly, and more boro related was that the manager at the time Jack Ross didn’t really fancy Will Grigg, but the chairman bought him anyway. Surprise surprise, Will Grigg struggled and didn’t fit in to how they play.    How does this relate to Boro? Well I think in the past, we have bought players who don’t fit a style and system for a manager. I think Warnock won’t sanction players to come if they don’t fit in, and this is obviously a huge positive moving forward.    Put it this way, I’m more confident that players will come to us for Warnock and work for him as opposed to a Boro under Woodgate. You can already tell the mentality of moving on quickly and not begging for players had an impact.    Why did Woodgate start Gestede vs Swansea, knowing that Gestede wouldn’t want to play in case he got injured. Warnock commands respect and Woodgate was seeking it. Big difference in mentality that I think gets overlooked with Woodgate and the recruitment side. 
    • Warnock's deadline for players to decide has nearly passed.
    • All pritty quiet today, other than the wingy debate, hopefully in prep for an influx of new signings
    • That was actually scrapped in Denmark as it’s impossible for the stewards to tell if people live together. Just too hard to handle 
    • August 3rd 1974 Boro 0 Carlisle United 1 A dull and disappointing Texaco Cup game between two teams who were both contemplating life in the First Division after being promoted together a few weeks earlier. In fact they'd meet twice in the top flight in the next fortnight or so. Boro became frustrated after several early saves by Carlisle keeper Alan Ross and too often resorted to long balls that the visitors' tall defenders dealt with comfortably.  It was former Boro favourite Hugh McIlmoyle who created the only goal, setting up Martin to fire home after 50 minutes. All in all a bad day at the office for Boro, with Jack Charlton saying after the game that he'd seen his team work harder in practice matches. In the news - The Tories criticised Labour's manifesto pledge to follow a policy of nationalisation ahead of the forthcoming election, housewives were warned (in a possibly sexist way) that eggs could cost £1.50 a dozen by 1975, Richard Nixon prepared to give a TV address as impeachment loomed in the Watergate affair and three north east lads were arrested in Spain for singing loudly at 2am and fined £1 each (equivalent to 8 eggs, or a decent Spanish omelette). Top of the charts - Rock Your Baby by George McCrae.
