Boro vs Brighton 1-1 Boro are promoted


Recommended Posts

This scenario was on the cards from a good while back , when this seasons fixtures were announced and we were drawn away at Boro for the 2nd season in succession a look of bemusement and who the hell hates us that much that we should have to travel such a distance for a 12.30 kick off , but this is different , very different  , for the winner a professional footballers and supporters dream for the loser instant heartbreak followed by a glimmer of hope that its still possible to reach the seasons goal .

 

I for one am bricking it and my overnight stay at a travelodge with fellow Brighton supporters will be a restless and blurred one , i bare no Boro supporter malice but of course want my team to win and i'm sure the best team will win on the day .

 

Dunky will indeed be kicking himself senseless for his needless sending off and while he is a very good defender and threat from set pieces we have able replacements that have been gagging for a start so i'm not to worried about his brainstorm ban .

 

Good luck Boro after saturday of course , its just our time and our turn .

I feel so much better know we don't have to win the game. It's going to be absolutely rocking at the riverside and I cannot wait. People said it would be years before we got a better chance to go up than last year, but here we are. We will never get a better chance

Was messing about with siri and asked if middlesbrough would beat brighton. Siri being useless just pointed me to any website mentioning the 2 rather than give me her opinion, but i found this gem from ollie back in december :)

 

"It's a battle of the top two and they're only separated by goal difference. Is this the end of Brighton's run? Can Middlesbrough do a number on them? I'm thinking, yes. Lewis Dunk will be a big miss for them after his stupid sending-off at QPR."

I'm not even going to make a prediction, no lineup predictions, no score predictions... nothing... I'm just going to drive to Middlesbrough on Saturday, hope to god we come out of it with a result our way.

 

Feel like I'm in a dreamworld at the minute, can't focus on anything except football.

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
