Boro v Watford (A) 0-2

Recommended Posts

Guest Changing Times

However, to put this game into some context and to explain why people might be pessimistic, if indeed they are, consider the following:

 

In our away games against Bournemouth, Derby, Ipswich, Brentford and Wolves we've scored only two goals and obviously only won those two games, losing the other three and conceding 7 goals in the process.

 

In our away games against the entire top half of the table we've only scored THREE goals. Just three in the nine games so far. As a result we've only won two games away from home against anyone in the top half of the table and we've lost five of them.

 

If you think about it in those terms then perhaps people might not be so confident, I don't know. I think we can get a result tomorrow but we're going to have to play very, very well to do it.

With what CT said when we all did the predictions with 10 games left I and a fair few saw this as a banana skin. Id be more optimistic if Woodgate and or Ayala were available as despite Gibsons plaudits he is not ready to lead the back line as has been seen in recent games.

The pressure seemed to effect our performance on Friday with so many bad decsisions being made all over the pitch, so being away a very good Watford side could suit us as we'll be the underdogs, and Watford will have the pressure on them. Our away form has been poor lately, and the lack of goals in parituclar away is a big concern as we know that if we're not solid defensively, then our chances of getting a result are very unlkikely. Their home record against the top few sides is poor so they have a vulnerability about them too.

 

This is the most nervous I've felt about a game for many years, probably since our relegation, as a win would put us into such a strong position for promotion with just 5 games to go.

I'm at work until 2. I like to think I have the will power to not look at the score and watch the game when I get home but with things being so tense? I don't think I can. This is going to be a really tough test for us. I hope Woody has spent the weekend in the ice bath to get him ready to play tomorrow.

My lad has just told me that he has seen an Adam Clayton tweet about instead of going to bed with sweet lullabies being played all he can hear is "whose that team they call the Boro" being sung at the bar by a few Boro fans at the hotel where the team are staying!!!

Should really be: "We're the bed-time, we're the bed-time, we're the bed-time red army!"

I'm gonna go for a 1-0 shut out to us (To be fair if we were playing Barca away I'd still go for a Boro win, l always go for us). We can win, like Prowler said we beat City, we can beat these. It's gonna be hard with there forward line but if Woody's playing we can do it. I would give Tomlin a go this game instead of Vossen but same team as Wigan apart from that if all fit. 1-0 Boro: Bamford.

Nervous about this one. I'll be nervous every game left but this is possibly our biggest challenge left. We should be feeling confident, and the top spot is ours to keep or lose. I genuinely think that a draw is a very decent result and also the most likely. I'll go for a tense 0-0. I'll be up at 5 am to watch it (my time) so hope the Lads give us a solid committed performance to be proud of. Same side as Wigan ideally for me. Woody or Ayala has clearly been a must for us so hopefully we have that option.

    • I really appreciate you sharing this about Randolph ex as many won't of seen it otherwise. It does need to be investigated as if this is true it's very damming on the club but not surprised the club is in complete chaos!
    • She seems to be suggesting that the club were looking to protect him I think.
    • Never know we might have another good blip and stay up 
    • Boring... So today is just what we are now.  Utter crap.. I've no idea what the hell is going on, basically Gibson is clueless when it comes to football decisions, the big issue to me all that happens at decision level, we then get JW who has to work with whatever budget he has and is totally inexperienced.   I'm a Boro fan of old and can remember when it was terrible however, I don't even care if we lose at the moment, all I want is change and a club that wants to win, I mean really win.  I'm not at the club and none of us are what goes on behind the scenes but it all looks like we are in free fall.
    • You know you cannot turn good players into bad ones overnight. This has been coming long before today's games and for him to drop the youngsters I have to say I fully agree with him in that sense. They cannot be held responsible at present when they have off games because they are still learning, and they need to be rested every other game or so. But today he needed that experience out there and the fact is that he never got it, mainly it is down to him and his tactics or should I say non tactical game play. Players saw he shot his bolt the last game they also saw he lost his way sometime ago Woody is hanging in there because of only one reason (Gibson) it as nothing to do with his managerial skills we all know that, because he simply has not got any. I would also say looking at the way experienced players are performing on the pitch for him  just proves he has also lost the dressing room.
