Top notch as per.

Fingers crossed we pull out a Brightonesque performance here. We are the 2 form teams with them unbeaten in 19 I think and us 6 straight wins.

My line up would have to be

 

Dimi

Nsue

Gibson

Ayala

Friend

 

Leadbitter

Clayton

 

Adomah

Ramirez

Downing

 

Rhodes

 

Hopefully Rhodes carries on his run with the added spice it is against his former teams biggest rival.

 

Prediction 2-1 Boro.

Karanka definitely makes a better cowboy.

 

Feeling pretty confident about this one. This is the type of game we usually show up for. As long as we keep it tight at the back and try to nick one on the break we'll be reet.

 

Hope Rhodes starts. Can't be stopping him if he's hitting his groove. I also think nugent makes a good super sub.

 

1-0 Boro. Rhodes to score

If this is 0-0 at half time, we will win.

However, I think we'll have to peg them back.

1-1, Downing to equalise after Gray scores first.

It's an interesting theory (and one I think AK will use before the season is out), but that would mean benching Ramirez for the 3rd game on the spin, and I just don't see that happening.

I think that we may throw a tactical curveball and go 442. The difference nugent made to rhodes was pivotal yesterday.

 

That's ok when we are chasing the game against a poor team but could be very different against a top side

I'm convinced were going to play Nugent in behind Rhodes in This game. I think aitor will want his most experienced team out there and they did well together vs Bolton. Hell also want his harder workers out there which undoubtedly include Dave

No need to make any major changes, I could see Kalas in the team though, with the pace of Gray up front Ayala and Gibson could struggle, it really wouldnt surprise me if Ayala was dropped after his performance yesterday though

 

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

Nsue--Kalas--Gibson--Friend

----Leadbitter---Clayton-------

Adomah--Ramirez---Downing

------------Rhodes--------------

 

Pressure all on Burnley, we only need a draw, if they dont win then they could be in trouble. Fancy us to get at least a draw though. We have been excellent against the top teams this season and I fancy us to continue that. 1-0 Boro Rhodes

I think he's been resting Ramirez specifically for Tuesday, would be very surprised if he didn't play

    • Last season Bola played 41 games out of 46, which is pretty good. Fry started 32 out of the first 38, but then missed the last 8 games - presumably one injury. The season before, Fry started 36 games with two short spells out ( Bola wasn’t bring picked a lot that season from memory.) So for those two, this season may be just unlucky, poor fitness management, as Wilder has suggested, or bringing them back too quickly after injury. There doesn’t seem to be a long term repeated history of injuries. Dijk does seem to miss more games though.
    • Thanks for putting some more context out there - stop the idiots claiming it’s just snowflakes being upset with the songs etc. It’s absolutely vile that female fans are being groped, hopefully more people will come forward and the club can deal with people appropriately. The leagues need to work together to take a tough stance on drugs use. As we saw at the Euros it’s ruining matches as well as our opportunity as a country to host big games and tournaments. 
    • It doesn’t look good but I suspect we will end up around mid table. We may struggle over the coming games but I expect improvement will be great enough to see us home. I would go as far to say we may even finish around 10th.  I am impressed with Chris in the press conferences, he comes across well, his knowledge of the club’s infrastructure and his plans give me confidence of his leadership.  I believe we are in good hands. 
    • Typically called Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing.. 
    • Looking at our back 4/5 we have Djik, Bola and Fry who don’t play enough games because of injuries. It doesn’t matter how good you are if you are on the the sick list. I suspect there will be a few checks going on behind the scenes to find out if players have undiagnosed injuries, if training is causing injuries, if the medical team aren’t up to scratch or if there’s a behavioural issue.    Depending on the results of those investigations I think we may see some of the players moved on
