Well i've exiled myself from participating in the last 3 games and we've won them all. Bad news is i've just arrived at the in laws and will be going to this. Unlike Aphex though, i've not seen us lose or draw at home since AK took over (14 wins). So a nervy 1-0 for me

After beating Hull, QPR and Huddersfield, the team will be on a high and we're scoring goals, our A game beats Preston's all day long, they can park the bus or do whatever, but we have more than enough quality to win this, and win it well, 2-0 Boro.

Well who would have thought a few weeks ago just how significant this game is going to be!

 

Yes we will already know the Burnley result before kick off but more significantly is the fact that Brighton do not play until Monday evening so a win against Preston is essential as it could impact the Monday result to an extent.

 

Imagine 4 points off third place before Monday and with the game on Tuesday to either establish that point gap or even enhance it should results go our way.

 

The confidence a win could bring to everyone concerned is massive and I believe pivotal towards the Tuesday night game against Reading.

 

PNE will not be a walk in the park and I hope Boro approach the game in a ruthless manner and get the game done and dusted as soon as possible.

 

This is an enormous game for us and one possibly worthy of my seldom used phrase therefore I do not hesitate is stating that this game could be declared as THE MOST IMPORTANT GAME OF THE SEASON......so far!!! for all the reasons mentioned.

 

Ps Good op again Boro Badger...well done and also a two clear goal win for the Boro

Preston picked up 3 injuries midweek plus they are losing Reach. I don't think this game is going to be any harder than Huddersfield as a consequence. If there are any doubts about Clayton and Gibson then AK will surely rest them for Reading. Forshaw and Ayala will be ready to step in. Other than that no changes for me. I am going for an optimistic 4-0. We could have got at least that on Tuesday. UTB!

Going for 3-1 again as we are starting to click up front.

 

The 3 behind are again going to be key as when Albert , Ramirez and Stewey are on form we look unbeatable so I just hope they are at it again on saturday. I think Rhodes will again start but as others have said wouldn't be shocked to see Nugent get a game

 

Rhodes/Nigent to get the first with another from Ramirez and one from Downing

I dont know much about Preston's team - were those 3 injuries to important players? I remember that Johnson (dreads) guy for them looked lively and I think Reach is a big loss for them too.

From what I understand two of the players who were injured were the first-choice centre back pairing, so they look like pretty key injuries. Both were stretchered off in the first 25 minutes. Don't know who the third was.

There are signs that the side is starting to really gel and gat back to our pre Xmas best. Some one is going to get a good trouncing soon. It will be PN E on the receiving end of a 4-1 defeat

Nugent hat trick.

This was the game out of the three home games where I thought we were most likely to drop points, but I've gained some confidence from somewhere and I reckon we'll be ok.

 

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

Nsue ---- Gibson -- Kalas ---- Friend

-------- Forshaw --- Leadbitter ------

Adomah ----- Ramirez ----- Downing

----------------- Nugent ------------------

 

Think Clayton won't have time to be ready for this one, so Forshaw to come in. Nugent to start as will be hungry for a goal, especially against his former team. The rest unchanged.

 

2-1 Boro. Adomah to score first.

The other was Boro born striker Jordan Hugill. Beckford will probably start.

The boys have half season cards in GRFZ, so I would think in the north stand, but flexible if you fancy a drink ;)

    • I think United have been trying to use Henderson when they can since Sheffield United last loaned him, don't think there was a plan for him to be loaned out.
    • 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)
