3-0 Boro win Kike fgs to move us back top of table for 24 hours at least until the mighty Derby County play on Tuesday. Looking forward to this one, think we'll play our strongest side in the next 2 games after yesterday's postponed match.

If we could win the next two games, we would be top of the table, with a game in hand, what a position that would be.

 

We could just push on as usual, and when the Blackburn game comes, it would take the pressure off and just be a chance to get another three.

I imagine Sheff Wed will come to park the bus. The fixture pile up and being away from home suggest that they will soak and counter.

 

It depends if we score first, it could be a Brighton, but it could be a frustrating afternoon if they are parking the bus. Hopefully as the game develops we turn the screw and eventually fitness prevails.

 

You can't blame the manager really, it's a valid excuse. Win and you look a hero. Loose and people will moan at the fixtures.

That would be the perfect scenario, any idea when the Blackburn game may be played?

I'd guess midweek in late Jan/early Feb. We don't have any midweek games for about 4 weeks on the spin, so that would work out. What would be interesting is if it's the first weekend of Feb, because we'd be playing Blackburn twice in a few days...

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
