Boro vs Bolton 1-0

Recommended Posts

Gonna go controversial here. My starting 11 would be

 

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

Fredricks--kalas--Gibbo--Friend

---------Clayton---Forshaw--------

Nsue--------Paddy------Adomah

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

 

Grant is looking very heavy legged at the moment and needs a rest. Give gorgeous the armband.. I think BamBam and Vossen are infinitely more intelligent that Kike. And with the sped both flanks provide will get goals against a severely battered and bruised Bolton side

 

Vossen wont be allowed to play... He wont be allowed to play for 1 week due to concussion... I like that line up though apart from I would like Wildscut to be given a chance on the left and Adomah showed today hes far better on the right.

 

Wasn't aware of the time off required for a head injury. so that puts Kike back up front. No great dramas with that as long as he gets his head up once in a while. I agree that Adomah is much better on the right but would expect him and Nsue to swap over frequently

I think Nsue would do a brilliant job on the left all game and leave Adomah on the right.... Put Bamford upfront with Tomlin just behind him.

Slightly off topic ( but doesn't warrent its own thread )

 

I was going to start a thread a week or so ago. Entitled 'What happens when we lose'..... I didn't in fear of jinxing the good run the we were on... But it was inevitable that we were going to lose at some point. And guess what???? We will again sooner or later..... The reaction on here (or over reaction more apt) was quite disappointing to see. But I quickly realised most of the crazy stuff was said in the first hour after the game......... Just goes to show how much this means to all of us on here and emotions run high. But You can guarantee the lads are hurting more........ AK will have them fired up to put this right and I've just got a sneaking feeling that whooping that were gonna give someone will happen Tuesday. And this time next week it will all be a distant memory

 

You heard it here first :):):)

Bolton have been conceding goals at an epic rate including conceding 4 goals three times in the last 4 games. In the league they've not kept a clean sheet since 19th December in a god awful match against Mourinho's mate at the den (they did have a bore draw against Liverpool in the cup).

 

With Ream unlikely to be fit, the keeper getting checked for concussion and no time on the training pitch you'd think this should be a boro win all the way. In the olden days you'd point out that boro are the team to play to stop runs and with our tendency to shoot at keepers you could get worried that Bolton will leave with a clean sheet.

 

We've played poor for weeks now and managed to pick up results so is this week a blip or are we seeing the fine margins turning against us?

 

I think this is the time to put in a performance and stop the nagging doubts we should make no mistake Bolton are a poor team. I'd go with

The run of games we have coming up worries me a bit. We are definitely having a bit of a blip and the games are only going to get tougher

If ever there was a game to get Boro back on track then this is defo one of them, if things click Bolton could and should have another 4 put past them.

 

This is a massive game and I am going to see how things go without using a seldom used phrase from me at least,

 

Had mentioned in the Leeds thread that recent performances were leading to what occurred and will stick by it all teams have a mini run of blip results and I feel that was our time but we can get it out of the way against Bolton and whilst I acknowledge that we have to deal with "the week of destiny" I will remind everyone that the other teams have to as well.

 

It is in our own hands :)

Good reaction from the Lads and a solid 3-0 win. Kike, BamBam and Tomlin as well as Adomah to chest the ball 2 yards into the air atleast once.

 

Haha! I noticed that. Uncle Albert and his 50p chest...

What a game this will be. I hate the phrase MIGOTSSF but I would like to make you aware that is what I think without saying it, haha. Bolton will be tough. Neil Lennon won't allow the run to continue and he will motivate his players to play against a side that no doubt he will say 'best of the division'. Quite worried about this one but they have Mills and Lonegan so it will be a mix up for them. Let's hope we can take advantage.

 

Think Dimi will come back to sure things up to make sure mistakes don't happen and aren't acceptable to AK. Think Gibson will be rested to allow Ken to control Heskey. Clayton to be rested- wouln't be surprised to see Whitehead even in the lineup. Reach i think was put into the match yesterday to get match fitness up so think we will start this one again. Tomlin and Bamford to start to try and get goals as soon as possible with Kike to lead the line to continue his good form.

    • Anyone who watched it, player ratings? Jones - 5, the 2 goals were in some huge part down to him. Both efforts he saved were parried back into dangerous areas and arguably he should hold the first effort, it bounces right into his chest. Parnaby - 6, some good throws but largely not as involved as others, especially when we got into the game later Riggott - 9, made some excellent tackles, won the header that led to his goal,  Southgate - 5, I love him but he was only on the pitch when we played crap and he was the aspect in the middle of the 3 that looked very much out of place. Queudrue - 8, defensively much better once the system changed, alongside Riggott managed Steaua's out ball really well Taylor - 7, in some ways unlucky to come off as he was doing a decent job working the flank but the change did help in a way Rochemback - 8, some of his passing was really intelligent and he was battling well alongside George, totally forgot how close he was with his left footed effort, completely rooted the keeper with it as well Boateng - 9, what a game, especially once we changed system, he was absolutely everywhere, not just winning every ball in the air and on the ground but also winning it often in a way so as to avoid giving them a way to get up the pitch, keeping possession in our favour Downing - 10, our biggest threat and one of our most intelligent passers of the ball. He wasn't just stretching them from out wide and whipping quality crosses in, he worked the entire left flank after Taylor went off and had to come really deep sometimes to ensure they didn't have a way of playing out. 3 wonderful assists, the cross for Massimo's winner... wow. Hasselbaink - 7, I think he led the team quite well after Southgate went off. But he missed a few chances he should have done a lot better with. Taking a dive when he should have tried to get his shot off, missing from a few yards out by miscontrolling the ball, he didn't really look like scoring. Viduka - 9, he had a few quite intelligent efforts, he definitely should have put away his incredible chance in the first half, wonderful jump and header for the second and generally the ball stuck to him so long as it was chest or below when he received it Subs: Maccarone - 10, bang 2-1, bang 4-2, his first goal was the catalyst for the turnaround, the whole team started to believe after it went in and it was a sodding good finish too. He worked really hard on the right hand side for a long time with not a huge amount of possession. He put in a few decent crosses to no avail. Then a bullet of a header at the back post sent us all ballistic. Was it even real? Yakubu - 6, very hit and miss, just like him in general at this stage of the season, ever since he stopped scoring he dropped off as a whole. He was kind of a good target to help Downing get out from the back but generally he didn't provide that much of a threat or indeed any kind of significant input. Ehiogu - 8, he was on for a few minutes only but then made a block that sent us to Eindhoven. We could genuinely have lost it right at the end after all our hard work and he saved us all. RIP Ugo, never forget that day.
    • Our formation was bloody dreadful for the opening half hour. It's no wonder McClaren, Round and the like were sat wondering what to do about it before Goian even put in their second. George Boateng, though. What a performance. I know he's not the only one but it's the first time since the night itself I've had chance to consider individual performances and I can't imagine as a 15 year old in that game thinking anything other than 10/10 for everyone. But once we got control of the midfield again, Boateng was an absolute beast.
    • I know its mad that tactics just went to pot in the game. Dica the guy we seemed to be linked with every window until he retired.
    • Still can't believe we won it from here. Hardly had any chances
    • Had to turn it off at 2-0 bloody useless. Queudrue was a handsome devil mind wasnt he.
