Assume Sky will show the Championship goals as they are scored tonight? is that right do you think?

 

No Soccer special listed for tonight which is a surprise plenty of games on

 

They must be covering Man city surely?

 

I would have thought that as well all I can find is this "Follow this week's European action with live blogs on skysports.com and the Sky Sports apps." No mention of a soccer special

Pre-match nerves have kicked in with a vengeance.. Like the last few games all that matters is the 3 points and I trust Karanka will pick the team to do this.

 

So what is everyone having for tea tonight? I'm sticking with the meal that I've eaten before the last 2 win.. Chicken Kiev and sweet potato chips.. I daren't eat anything else just in case!

Looks like Twenty20 cricket is on, Indian PL? No idea, don't follow cricket. But that's what's on SS1 tonight.

 

The goals might still get shown on SSN but it's just regular SSN 'Sky Sports Tonight', the hourly 'show'.

The Indian Premier League is to cricket what the champions league is to football.

 

Would've at least hoped we get the championship on SS2 or 3...

There's only a handful of games on tonight so I don't know if they do the soccer special thing when there's so few.

Always on a Tuesday and Wednesday Sky will show the goals as they go in, after all there will be highlights available so it is no bother to them for the front man to give game updates and goal action

Stuani's seemingly impending ban might make it more likely that he starts tonight. Adomah is the only one of our best forward 4 that hasn't had a rest in this packed fixture list so it wouldn't surprise me to see him start on the bench. If the appeal is upheld then it will be interesting to see who Karanka turns to when one of Downing, Ramirez or Adomah isn't available . Nsue maybe? With Dr Laet at RB. Or maybe strike a deal with Preston to get Reach back despite there being no clause. Maybe a gentleman's agreement that they can take him on loan again next season. Surely they'd take that as their season is pretty much over. It'd be hard to arrange though as Reach might want to assess his options or fight for his place here next season. Maybe put Ramirez RW with Forshaw #10. Obviously it's not ideal but it's something worth having a contingency plan for just in case we pick up an injury to one of them whilst we're potentially without Stuani. de Pena and Kike Sola seem nowhere near close to getting a chance.

 

I'm feeling so nervous about tonight. Every game feels like a play off game. Hopefully Brighton's late winner last night has brought an added focus to the players minds for tonight.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • there’s two considerations for me in this. Firstly, I think some of this depends on where we are going to play Djik. If he is now a CB then I would want a RWB to come in and Spence is the most obvious choice. He can challenge Jones for the spot and competition will be good for both of them.  I don’t want it to be the case that if Jones has a dip in form, suspension or injury that we are having to juggle several players about. the secondary issue is where is Spence’s head. Does he want to come back or is he done with Middlesbrough. I don’t want anyone that may be disruptive in the dressing room. I am not saying he is or isn’t I have no knowledge either way but I would want to know where his head is at.
