Boro v Watford (A) 0-2

Recommended Posts

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.

Boro have a knack of the unexpected, lets hope tomorrow is one of those days. Cmon Boro three points tomorrow and the winning post gets a whole lot closer.

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 don't think anyone thinks the performance was good. I'm just not putting much stock into a game I expected us to lose for the reasons we lost it. The best I can say is we tried to do something different to how we played against Millwall, the last time we played a team like this. Between the two games, I think yesterday's loss of points was more down to individual performances than the tactical battle which is a positive for the tactics as much as it's a negative for some of the individuals in the team. Maybe next time, if we pick the right players, we'll get something more out of the game. It's early days, we can be forgiven right now for thinking we have room to experiment and not be too worried whether it goes right or wrong. That's all part of the learning curve.
    • Same story in Tampa  Buccs 18 up at half time .. Now only 3 up and Giants have the egg I hope it will end well, like your Bills 😉
    • Bills completely dominated the Bengals for the entire first half and somehow only scored 14 points. 250+ yards to 77. Gave up 17 unanswered in the 2nd half before a 4th quarter TD drive and a game sealing pick get us the 21-17 win. 3-0 but we should have been 30+ up at half time.
    • Packers now 3 wins in 3. Great start to the campaign. At least they didn't let me down. 😂
