  1. 1. Boro v Ipswich.... Win, Lose or Draw?



Recommended Posts

I'd like to see Bamford & Vossen up front but they were so ineffective against Ipswich at Portman Rd.

 

Also Muzzy has to get some game time or Reach should start because for all our good play against Forest it was a bit slow.

 

To be fair, most were awful at Portman road and I thought they were distinctly average, we should boss this and 2-0 reversal for me

If this is going to be viewed on Sky Television we may as well award you the points now. Our record in front of the cameras is poor to say the least this season. 12.15 start is damn stupid too but guess we have to dance to Sky TV's tune..

 

This years championship is one of the best ever and you're in a better position right now to go up but a lot can change before end of season. Obviously hope if you make it to the top two places by May you can elbow out Norwich City while you're at it, but then that leaves the chance we could face them in the play-off games... Doesn't bear thinking about sometimes..

 

We only have one recognized striker at the moment in Murphy and the loan kids have come in but have yet to make an impact although it's still fairly recent. McCarthy has a tendency to play bizarre formations and doesn't always know what his best starting XI is and there have been one or two calls for his departure but really he's done very well in his short time with us.

 

I'll be straight with you and say I don't believe we'll get anything from our trip up there but we'll just have to see what occurs. We're really looking for a play off place now as we don't believe we can get an auto promotion such is the inconsistency but really, it's been a very good season thus far for us and if you had offered where we would both be now back in August we would have accepted without hesitation.

We were poor all over the pitch at Ipswich... I think that was just one of those games we didn't turn up at all.... It will be different this Saturday..

 

UTB.

Me too, I don't really bother myself with predictions when it comes to Boro. What ever happens, happens. It's going to be quite the ride. I'm just glad we have something to play for at this point in the season for a change.

Tend to agree CF, predictions are thrown out of the window but it's still fun to speculate, main thing is we are fully behind the team as they need all the support they can get.

Wonder if Jordan Rhodes gets paraded onto the pitch before kick off in front of the Sky cameras :P

Even if we don't sign Rhodes I hope it will act as a wake up call to our strikers that it's either they start scoring or we will look to replace them. For all of Vossen's hype I haven't seen much from him for us to keep him here after his loan expires. He got a hat-trick away at Millwall but other than that he has been a disappointment. Hopefully Vossen, Kike and Bamford suddenly start putting their chances away now that there has been a bit of a vote of no confidence by Karanka by us being so interested in Rhodes. Faith and patience to under-performing players only last so long in a promotion push.

I find it hard to believe that Kike will suddenly start scoring more than 1 in 4 which equals about 3 goals for the rminder of the campaign and Vossen doesn't seem to get enough gametime and Bamford is played out of position. If they get 10 goals between them in the final 10 games I think we'll be lucky.

The enormity of this game has only just really dawned upon me especially as, and let's face it the two teams we are most concerned about Norwich and Derby are playing each other on the same day.

 

This simply has to be a MUST WIN game going into the "week of destiny"

 

There has not been as much a crucial game played at The Riverside for quite some time and for all sense and purposes does carry my seldom used phrase albeit that on this occasion I will not use the term myself.

 

To lose this game with all the current speculation in my opinion would knock us back and would possibly have a ripple effect on the two away games we have to face.

 

This is such a vital time to get back to winning ways as I honestly believe that any team now who is in the top 4 ill do themselves a world of good if they got back to back wins

    • Boro flashback - This day back in 87 Cup action at Ayresome Park After knocking out Sunderland in the 1st round of the league cup we were drawn against our 2nd division opponents & rivals that season in Aston Villa, on this day 23rd September, we faced Villa in the 1st leg at home, a good crowd of 11,400 were tret to a cracking cup tie, Boro going down 1-0, but missed many chances to have taken a 1st leg lead to Villa Park, including a missed penalty  We faced Villa 4 times that season, losing boyth cup games & winning both league games, even the final day of the league season couldnt have been any closer   Brucy Riochs red & white team that night  Stephen Pears Dean Glover Colin Cooper Tony Mowbray Gary Parkinson Gary Pallister Bernie Slaven Archie Stephens Gary Hamilton Paul Kerr Stuart Ripley Sub Alan Kernaghan
    • If it's true, I'd ask everyone what I've said before; is the £20m we receive from Fry alone going to solve our problems? A question for the club is how much is just to keep us going and not to actually begin moving the club as a whole in the other direction? Is a big transfer fee on its own good for us or is it just going to be burnt on other players' wages? Would accepting a lower fee on a player like Britt, Saville, Shotton or otherwise be better for the finances as they actually reduce our wage bill by a significant amount? Also bear in mind that Fry represents everything that's potentially good about the way we move forward, bringing in high potential youngsters, giving them first team football and building a side around them. He's one of those that has already shown in probably the most significant way (vs. other young players) what he's capable of at this level. At such an early stage of the transition process, I'd ask if there is significant value right now for us to let a player go for a good value. I'm not convinced. The wage bill will still be high from players who don't represent what we are now trying to achieve so we'll still have a problem without removing them from the squad. Recent history has also taught me not to trust the club to spend any significant amount of money well. We have a good player right now in Fry, bringing in £20m on its own does not represent a good decision, it's what we do with that money that will ultimately represent whether or not a deal of that ilk would be good for us.

    • I couldn't watch the game (sounds like I was lucky with that). Just watched the highlights and it looked like a fair result. We created one and half chance the entire game and thats just not good enough. Awful. Briliant header by Fletcher though 🙂 
    • Yeah I agree with that, he's absolutely miles away from that level. I think Fry has looked good in the Championship but I don't think he's set the world alight either.  If I was a Premier league scout I'd be happy to buy him but I'd ideally want to see him develop at Championship level on loan for another couple of seasons.
