Boro V Birmingham City (A) 1-1

Recommended Posts

One thing I will say, and not to be negative - but AK really needs to start getting this team going in the first half. We continuously have to step our game up considerably in the second half to gain the points, whereas if we were a goal or two up before Dimi got sent off we could have sat back, defended and hit them on the break. We can't go into the games coming up against the better teams relying on one half of good football.

I am sure Dimi will be available against Leeds regardless as a straight red card takes 7 days to be processed to allow the club to lodge an appeal

And we also need to be careful with Gibson. Two major errors in two league games now, in a young defender there's always the risk the head will drop. Possibly try playing Woody or Kalas against Leeds for me.

I feel confidant with Majias covering in goal now.... Before the Man City game I would of taken a point against most teams with him in goal.... But now I think we potentially have at least a good keeper in shape of Majias.... Fair play to the lad.

In most players I would agree but I think Gibson is different to most.. That said I wouldn't argue if he was dropped/ Rested for a couple of games.

It would be nice to come out and be ruthless in a first half and give us all an easy second half.

I've never heard that before, I thought they just rushed through the appeal process in these situations?

Cant be disappointed. Almost ruined it for ourselves, great character to battle back for a draw. We are still top, on to the next one.

Its years ago since it was like that. Now it's automatically the next game.

An away draw against a mid-table team. Nothing wrong with that, even before you take into account the circumstances with which we earned it!

 

Another good day in my opinion.

 

Home vs Leeds, Bolton and Millwall, with away at Wednesday wedged in the middle. That's 4 games where I can see us picking up a lot more points.

 

Now we have the league lead, I think for now we'll be looking to extend it to 4+ points on third in that time period. And I think that's exactly what we'll do. Given the fixture list, I think we will start to edge away from Bournemouth with Derby staying in touch.

Interesting team... Is it just me or does it feel like we've not seen Nsue as an attacking force for a while, what with the ACON and playing fullback. Reckon he will be on the left side tonight.

 

A huge opportunity tonight to go 3 points clear, would be over the moon if we took it!

 

Still think 1-1 will be the score however.

 

Once again Pyro has the correct score, that is 2 games in a row now with the correct score #predictinggenius

 

To be fair pyro I predicted 1-1 on Monday :P

We might need to make a lot of changes for the Leeds game... Taking into account we play 63 hours after this game finished and Leeds had the week off, Also we were down to 10 men for 50+ mins and our boys ran there socks off..... I don't like a lot of changes from game to game but surly this is the time to use the full squad in a week.

@Boro: Karanka confirmed that Emmanuel Ledesma is looking to join Brighton on loan and Seb Hines is close to finalising a move to Orlando City.

    • I always found this crazy it would be £10 you switch your VPN on it's suddenly £5 🤯
    • Thank you as always for the info. When you say there are 2 lists of 8 or 9 players. Does that mean we are looking to sign 8 or 9 new players?  Probs make sense if 5 out the 7 out of contract players are leaving along with a handful of loan players.
    • Do you believe any of the other out of contract players will be offered a new contract if we stay in the Championship? 
    • Whilst the noises from inside suggest Ayala will play I still dont see it... Leeds have stepped up there interest along with Fulham and Crystal Palace. Gibson not allowed to play etc and Djiksteel prob wont be seen until next season. The club are actively pushing ahead with targets... 2 lists around 8 or 9 players on each list dependant where were playing. Also Everton have asked us to keep them up to date if we sell Fry. The feeling behind the scenes is he will move on and money will be used to strengthen in the summer whilst helping balance the books. Howson will only sign once were safe. Other things going on but nothing set in stone. Once it changes in will share.
    • Boro weren't on the red button for quite a while, honestly. I thought it was a flat £10 for all because they upped the coverage?
