Looking forward to this season, and a good way to kick off. Should be a good game!


Think we need to get the ball rolling, so the first 5/6 games could be crucial. Sheff U, Swansea, S***horpe, Donny, Bristol City and Ipswich are all winnable.


Cheers (first post :) )

    • Lmao, it gets better and better  
    • I thought Connolly ran around a lot but saw nothing to impress or to make me think he isn't just another in a long line of Boro loaned Strikers that have underwhelmed us. I'd pick Akpom over him based on that showing id he were still here. There is however still time for him to get match sharp and to improve so lets wait and see but Balogun oozed class from his first touch of the ball. I'd go with Balogun and Sporar with Watmore coming on for one of them in the 2nd half.
    • Why not? We played Leeds twice, better team twice, we were beating them till the 120th minute in the second match. Beat West Brom twice. Lost to Villa twice, but they were playing West Brom and West Brom beat them and drew with them. The whole argument that we wouldn't have been promoted because Villa beat us 3-0 twice in the league doesn't hold water for me. We'd beaten Norwich 5-0 on aggregate the season when they then beat us in the play-off final.  
    • Agreed, finishing was off but got into good positions and made a few chances himself. Excellent workrate too, just looked like one of those where he was too desperate to make an impact and snatched at those chances. Balogun looked silky smooth when he came on so wouldn't cry if he started either to be fair.
