Boro V Derby County (A) 1-1

Recommended Posts

On a warm August afternoon the Boro proved they were indeed back in business. In fact, for 45 minutes, they were a powerhouse of attacking intent. But on Tuesday, they have potentially the toughest test of the season. A big job is needed, can our boys prove that they are...

Release Date

Tuesday 18th August, 7:45pm

 

Synopsis:

The Championship preseason favourites go head to head. The Rams have had a difficult start under new coach Paul Clement, but undoubtedly have some of the most talented players in the league. Our boys need to be on top of their game to come away with anything, a repeat of last season would go down very nicely. 

 

Will our leading men from last time have chance to shine again?

Will we play on the counter or get at them?

When will we unleash The Nuge? 

Will Big Ben be back in time?

 

Cast:

Dimi Konstantopolous as Goalkeeper

Tomas Kalas as Right Back

Dani Ayala as Centre Back 1

Jack Stephens as Centre Back 2

George Friend as Left Back

Grant Leadbitter as Skipper

Adam Clayton as Centre Midfielder

Albert Adomah as Right Winger

Stewart Downing as Left Winger

Diego Fabbrini as Diego Maradona

Enrique 'Kike' Garcia as The Comeback King

Chris Martin as The Big Baby 

Derby Fans as a load of sausages

David Nugent as The Difference        

 

What The Critics Are Saying

http://dcfcfans.uk/topic/19899-derby-county-v-middlesboro/

"I'd be happy if we don't lose this. Boro were my team to beat before the season, they tore Bolton apart in about 20 minutes. Plus last season's games against them were horrific. I'd be chuffed if we win, but unfortunately I expect to lose."

"Can't see anything other than a loss unfortunatley. I think we'll huff and puff but waste what chances we have whereas Boro will take theirs. "

"Smoggies  will try to play fooyball  ,  sticking my neck on the line        3 - 0  to Derby  ,  as a vast percentage  see this fixture  as a tough one ,( me included ).   so a good win is in order of the day"

I went to his fixture last season and Tomlin set up Bamford for a delicious goal. A repeat from Fabbrini and Kike would go down nicely UTB

My head says a draw but my gut says that AK might just get one over on Clement tactically. Need a high work rate and non stop hassling though.

wow are you sure those are quotes from Derby fans? What's happened to the brazen arrogance?

Two teams that expected to be fighting it out at the flashier end of the table. Derby didn't play to their capacity twice last season, so I'm sure they'll be out for revenge. I'd be happy with anything from it but I'll go 2-1 boro, downing kike and errrr ince or someone.

Your MDTs are a hoot, Boro Tom. Love the IMDb layout with its cast of characters. :D

Will Big Ben be back in time?

 

This made me chuckle far more than it should have done.

Going to try and make this one if they are selling tickets on the door. I asked the club on Twitter but they didn't reply. Going to give hem a ring about it at some stage.

 

If they are available meeting up with some of you guys would be good!

Do we know if this is available on a stream? It's a pretty big game, so maybe some channel will pick it up.

Has become a good little rivalry this fixture in recent years. Hoping the atmosphere matches the one at their place last season. I won't make any team selection predictions as Aitor does what he wants ha but hoping to see the two new strikers at some point.

I don't know if he's even fit or not but does anyone think we may see Woodgate starting with Gibson being injured still? I can't see Fry playing against Derby away, although Jack Stephens does seem like he'd be another good alternative.

I am a bit concerned that this will be Ayalas 4th game in about 8 days along with Friend and Clayton, in an ideal world we should be resting these three as there is no doubt that fatigue sets in and affects performance. We definitely need Ayala for this one though as he will have to keep Martin quiet again. Surprised Karanka didn`t substitute him at half time on Saturday to give the poor bloke a breather.

Friend didn't play at Oldham, and Clayton came off before the hour mark, I think. Agree about Ayala though, hopefully Gibbo will be back soon so he can have a breather at Burton.

    • Great news OMG it will be good to keep the PL going it's a great feature and good fun. MM you underplay you're efforts, fantastic job for the last few seasons, I'm sure on behalf of the forum a big thank you for all your hard work and frequent updates. I hope you continue to take part.  
    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
