Boro V Brighton 0-0

Recommended Posts

If we go 1-0 up I'm looking forward to the sarcastic chants of "18 more, we only need 18 more".

 

Bournemouth might start panicking at half time if they're losing 5-0 and we're winning 8-0. It will never happen though :P If that's the case I would put Dimi up for corners!.

It wasn't the Dimi going up for the corner that was the problem it was Tomlin at centre half.

 

A good win in front of a full house is the tonic we need to prepare for the play offs.

Does anyone think Rippers might get a run out in this game? I have he feeling he might have done, had so much spotlight not been on Dimi for last week's game. As it is, I think that Dimi will play, in order for the fans to give him a good reception and show their support. Thoughts?

Imo the only person we can blame for the Dimi decision is Karanka, a moment of madness and he thought that a draw wouldn't be enough. But without Karanka would we even be where we are now? I think not. Got to take the whole season into consideration and imo the best 2 teams went up. We should let that decision go and focus on the rest of the season.

 

As for Brighton, we need to find a balance between a rested team and one that will win the game. Can see Forshaw, Reach, Nsue, Omeruo and not sure who'd fill in for Friend.

 

Maybe Ledesma to stake a claim?

Totally agree that it was Karanka. He has done well for us.... but if we win on Saturday, and Bournemouth lose at Charlton, it will be one of the worst managerial decisions of all time !!!

 

(OK, I promise to let it go now).

 

COME ON BORO. Finish the season with four wins in a row.......

If Charlton beat Bournemouth on Saturday it will prove nothing. Bournemouth have got the job done already so won't approach the Charlton game with anywhere near the same level of focus as they're already promoted.

This is how I think we'll line up.

 

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

--Omeruo----Ayala---Amorebieta--

Nsue---Leadbitter--Forshaw----Reach

------------Tomlin----------

---------Vossen--Kike-------

 

Possibly Deano in for Grant.

I was thinking Rippers with Mejias on the bench. Dimi's clutched his leg a few times in recent weeks so it would be good to rest him. Think Whitehead will get on to say good bye to the riverside. Maybe start Woody and Big Ken.

 

I'd keep Reach in and try and build his confidence. Start Kike and rest Vossen, Bamford and co who are carrying knocks. Think we should field a strong team but try and minimise risks.

 

There are a few players that could do with a run out in case we need them.

Nice one Boro-Ungerrr! Hopefully you'll take us on a five match winning run and your sixth will be our first Premiership game.

 

UTB!

Mejias, Omerou, Leadbitter, Forshaw, Nsue, Reach, Adomah, Tomlin, Bamford, Vossen, Kike

 

1-2-4-3 formation. Let's turn this 19 goal deficit around! :P

You have one at the back and you've gone for Omerou?! Bold. Although can I make a tweak and have Ayala playing up top? He almost got a hat-trick pushing forward at Fulham.

I was gonna go with Woody as the lone defender, but Omerou is probably our fastest centre back. I was tempted to put Ayala or Ripley up front, but I thought it'd be better to have another winger on the pitch :P

    • 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.   
    • what a doyle, I posted week 8 and 9 but forgot week 7   deserve to be bottom for that alone
    • I watch Man City closely, as my best friend is a long standing fan. City might have sent a scout or two to watch Dael,  but I doubt they'd try to fix their flawed defence with a largely unproven and injury-hit Championship youngster. Unless their plan was to sign him and then loan him out for a couple of years.   A sale-and-loanback deal might be palatable, if we reinvested the money in players who would actually suit the type of football Woody claims to want to play. It's obvious which deficiencies in our squad need to be addressed, and quickly.
