Aside from the monumental game we play we also have Brighton v QPR tomorrow night. Does anyone think Jimmy Floyd can get something from the game? They stalled Cardiff's top 6 pursuit with a 0-0 draw at the weekend? Brighton are on fire at the moment so I'm not overly hopeful!

It's a concern that we haven't kept a clean sheet in our last 5 away games as we're going to need to solidity tomorrow night against Burnley's quality attacking players. With that in the back of my mind I'd be reasonably happy with a draw as it will keep us above both of Burnley and Brighton. If we win then we'll be as good as promoted. The nerves are going to be unbearable during the game.

Ultra defensive for this one.

Dimi

Kalas Ayala Gibson Friend

Clayton Leadtter

Adomah Gaston Downing

Nugent

 

Nugent because he is so much more than just a goal poacher. Nugent to score in the 92nd. 2-1 Boro.

 

There is a lot more confidence on this forum. Much more than in the early days of the season when it was invariably posted " I'd take a draw for this one" for almost every game.

 

I just can't contain myself, wish I could be there, but I will be there in spirit, well in Old Perculiar anyway.

Up the Flaming Boro, and burn that Dyche d**khead.

It'd be nice but I can't see it.  I didn't make much of QPR when we played them a few weeks ago in all honesty.  Most of this division is mediocre at best in my opinion so unless Brighton maybe let the pressure get to them then I can't see past another win for them unfortunately.

It wouldn't surprise me if Hughton has challenged them to score more to try and make up the difference. You can see in the Fulham game highlights, they didn't play later on like a team willing to sit and accept the score. And in those amazing 15-20 minutes of the second half at QPR, you can see how vulnerable they are defensively. We could and should have ended that game with a much bigger positive on our goal difference.

Barnaby that story brought a tear to my eye.

Let's launch a campaign to reunite Barnaby with his long lost Boro kiss lady.

 

I think DCI Barnaby should be able to- he's had enough success tracking down all those murderers after all.

 

think the wife would decapitate me sharpish if that happened anyways it was a long time ago

Said it before but it would be nice to cheering Brighton on last day of the season.

 

I don't normally want us to loose but if it meant Burnley missing out on automatic promotion because of it I'd have a sly grin.*

 

 

 

*assuming we are already up that is

    • Gary Neville's comments would have held more weight if he had and his brother hadn't bankrolled Salford in to the EFL in the same season that their hometown club went under. Salford replaced Bury in the EFL.
    • That was what Warnock said but as time went on the less I started believing. Both him and Pulis painted this picture of being honest and open with the media - I didn't buy into it.  Warnock contradicted himself on many occasions and by the end of both tenures they were saying things to make themselves look better.
    • Still my closest club and they do play a nice brand of football (most of the time). I'd like to pick and choose games as a neutral but you have to have a club card..... Shame. When I first moved here in '84 I lived about 800 yards from de Meer, their original ground. Went half a dozen times and then stopped going regularly as they were so superior to the oppo that they were invariably 3 up inside 20 to 25 minutes. At that point in a game it was as if an Armistice had been signed, if you don't try to catch up, we won't humiliate you. As a spectacle the game was over. I can get to Breukelen in about 25 minutes by car from Aalsmeer.
    • Sort of. He was identified by the recruitment team (Scott) and Warnock accepted after checking with his guy in France.
    • I think the EFL are holding back the money until the Admin have proved DCFC is going to fulfil its fixtures. Considering the Admin's job is to reduce the debt they don't seem to be selling many assets, Williams off to Chelsea will probably cover the golden ticket fund but actual debts they seem to be more intent on getting them dismissed than paying them.
