Games in hand are usually our downfall. But we are on a good run now. I don't think we'll lose another home game up to the Brighton game. A win would be huge, finalising that 9 points out of 9 we dreamed of. 6 out of 6 so far.

 

I think we can do it as well. I think we can get a 2-0 win here. We've got out first-choice defence back and fit. We've got our best 2 midfielders back and playing much more like we're used to. Adomah is on fire going forward, Ramirez is scoring goals for fun.

 

I think it's time we seen a brace from Rhodes. He will no doubt be back in the line-up on Tuesday and I think he'll be heavily involved.

 

Going for 2-0 to Boro, Rhodes with both.

Think we should be ok for this one, just hope they players don't get complacent before it. A win would set us up so nicely for that Bolton game, but one game at a time and all that.

Think Rhodes will start again. 2-0 Boro, Gaston FGS

Out of the 3 home games this was my banana skin. Don't remember many good recent performances against these, other than a 3-0 in Karankas first season. According to some of their fans the players minds are on the beach so they may be here for the taking. They have some handy players, Vydra, Kermogant, Gunter so we need to be on the ball. If we can get that early goal though their heads might drop. Hope the starting line up is the same as Huddersfield but with Ayala keeping his place.

Superb BB. It's like being in Harry Potter :P

 

Looking at readings pretty poor away form against top half sides, we should have a decent chance. As long as our nerves don't get the better of us.

 

1-0 Boro

I hope we start with: Dimi; Nsue, Ayala, Gibson, Friend; Leadbitter, Clayton; Adomah, Ramirez, Downing; Rhodes.

 

I've got a bad feeling that Karanka might give Adomah a rest and play Stuani instead as he's the only attacker that hasn't had a rest. I'd much rather Nsue play at RW, with De Laet going to RB, instead of Stuani, that might disrupt the team too much though. Our attacking options don't have the greatest deal of strength in depth, as de Pena and Kike Sola appear nowhere near good enough at the moment, so I think that might be making Karanka be so cautious about giving the best attacking 3 rests every so often so that they don't get tired and pick up a muscle injury or fail to perform to their usual standards.

I wish you hadn't, I can never unwatch that now. WTF were they thinking...

 

Anyway yes now I have recovered my composure, great OP as usual Badger. Fancy us for a 2-0 win here and will go for Ayala as FGS

Definitely wouldn't be removing Nsue from RB at the moment. He's a major part of how we play offensively.

Think Rhodes Clayton and Downing will be back for this. Can we make it 5 wins in a row? Oh yes we can! 3-0 Boro Rhodes first goal scorer.

 

Fans will have a huge part to play again so whoever is going make sure you're LOUD!

 

After buying tickets for the Brighton game I decided to get tickets for the Ipswich game anarl which looks like it is selling well. I can see it selling out by the end of next week should we win our next two games so if anyone wants to go get them in advance!

    • And in the world of reality we will soon be top 6. #UTFB
    • Historically Boro have not done well at Stoke: Overall: Played 100 Won 42 Drawn 22 Lost 36 Home: Played 50 Won 31 Drawn 11 Lost 8 Away: Played 50 Won 11 Drawn 11 Lost 28 This season Stoke's home record reads P10 W6 D2 L2, so Boro's prospects don't look great. Think we will do well to get a point. Won't be too upset if we lose - though as usual the performance will factor into this.  
    • Well that's part of trying to play the counter attack, isn't it? For every lung full you give yourselves, you also give it to your opponents and get them prepared to defend. It wasn't like he was rushing his goal kicks either but when the ball was in his hands, it was usually after a period of Swansea pressure and he had his head up wanting to get us back up the pitch quickly which is exactly what you should be doing if you're playing on the counter-attack. We still wanted the second goal so as a group, we tried to counter them, we kept pressing them until the end, we didn't sit back and try and re-form our unit as a team when the opportunity might be there for a chance. So I guess you could say in my eyes, it wasn't about the keeper's decision, it was a tactical decision for the team. We wanted to kill the game off, even without possession we wanted to match or better Swansea's tempo. So I'm not sure why that comes back onto just the keeper.
    • I still don’t get why there is a deep analysis of Daniel and our goalkeepers when there is clearly greater problems in the quality of outfield players. I can’t remember a time a keeper has been slagged so much for not conceding a goal.  Given Swansea had pressed so high in the second half, our midfield where loosing the battle with a tiring back line, the fact there was plenty of green behind Swansea defence, and we have a history of conceding some stupid goals his decision making was right. If from recent games you take away the amount of self inflicted goals how many have we conceded, not many. Anyway I am a great believer in the term, if in doubt, kick it out. It’s not pretty but you get to reassess the situation. 
    • In the world of what ifs, we're in the top 6.
