Is Ayala back for this one? If he is we'll win, he makes a massive difference in our defence.

 

The team I would like to see assuming everyone is fit.

 

Dimi

 

De Laet

Ayala

Kalas

Friend

 

Clayton

Forshaw

 

Nsue

Ramirez

Adomah

 

Rhodes

 

Yes that's Gibson Leadbitter and Downing dropped. All 3 have been poor, and I reckon we will see some major changes on Friday after 2 awful displays on the road.

 

Rhodes just needs to get that *** goal which will get him going again, I fancy him to get it on Friday if he is supplied with the right service. I have gone with a 3 of Nsue Ramirez and Adomah because I believe their trickery and pace will cause Hull problems.

 

I have a feeling we will put in one of those classic home displays under floodlights.

 

2-0 BORO OWAAAAYYYYYYY BORO

Pretty sure the last time we saw Ayala return from a long-ish term injury was this one... is it any surprise that it's happening at almost the exact same time in a game that was also seen as heavily important last time out?

He scored and went off injured again last time round. Fingers crossed if he is straight back into the team that he stays in it this time for the full 90.

Do we know Ayala will be back? Or are we hoping?

 

Someone said a few weeks back on Facebook he'll be back on 18th. Didn't take any notice of it at first but the rumour seems to have picked up again.

Swap Ayala for Kalas and that may be the team...

 

Quality spot mate! Unless AK's thought of that, and has put it up intentionally to trick Brucey :rolleyes:

Id like to see this, Ramirez and downing playing slightly narrower with width provided by the full backs. Nugent to fill the chasm of space behind Rhodes trying to link up play. I'd rather Forshaw ahead of Leadbitter but I don't think it will happen. De Laet gives the defence a more solid appearance against a team that will attack us.

 

I don't think we can get away from the fact that this game will be huge and a defeat will, in my opinion, consign us to a play off battle.

 

My prediction is that it will finish either 1-1, 1-0 Boro, or 2-1 Boro (hedging my bets)

Would rather Stuani behind Rhodes if AK thinking of 4411 but hey, not my decision.

That RB slot needs to be perfect because Sam Clucas is a quality player who will no doubt have a hand in most of what Hull create. I think we're best off with De Laet for this one.

 

Snodgrass came back the other night as well though, George is going to be made to look pretty ineffective going forward unless we cover him effectively.

 

That being said, both teams are probably going to focus more on their own offensive options than the teams the both of us usually play against. This could end up being a shut-out or a very open game of attacking football.

 

If we can mark Hernandez out of the game and get Clayton to keep Diame at bay, we could very well win this.

 

Can't wait for it now!

When have we ever manufactured an open attacking game of football? Karanka will have the game on lock down. We'll play not to lose as we always do.

    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there. 
    • Hartlepool, Harrogate, Newcastle or Leeds please. (Away)  
    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • 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.
