If we lose this I dread to think what the reaction will be like. Will be hell on. Can see the atmosphere turning sour if we concede first. We really do need a win to get things back on track and confidence restored. Yesterday and Southampton are the first time I've been mightily cheesed off since the Charlton debacle.

We matched Liverpool in the first half yesterday, and we gave Chelsea a fair battle. We also dominated Hull, but not scoring enough, which makes me pretty sure of a good performance AT HOME vs Swansea.

 

Please God, let The Riverside become a fortress again!

We can win this match but need to start creating from our midfield and our 2 wide players ala Fischer and traore need to Tuck in more to support negrado and let our width come from the full backs.

Would like to see downing used in the midfield 3 as his presicion passing could open Swansea up!

Come on Boro!

Definitely a must not lose. Very nearly a must win.

 

I heard Aitor talking about someone who had a virus or something, but would be back training today. Who was that?

 

Would really like to see:

 

--------------Valdes------------

Barragan--Chambers--Gibbo--Fabio

---------Clayton--Forshaw-------

---Traore----Gaston---Downing---

-------------Negredo------------

 

Just realised that's the same team as Humpty put, great minds ;)

 

I think a return to the 4231 could give us a bit more attacking-ness. Save the 433 for the bigger teams. Downing and Traore are our best wingers atm in my eyes. Fischer is OK, but hasn't been outstanding. Although I think downing is better when friend is playing, they seem to link up quite well when attacking down the left.

Just the be positive. There's every reason to believe that we will defeat this lot and do so convincingly :cool: UTB.

    • That's mainly me and only when I have allowed the wine to flow. Jones is terrific but rather one dimentional  which is a shame because he could litterally cause havoc in opposition defences. Just pleased we did not lose and showed ability to get back into the game twice and could have clinched it had Duncan Scoresomemore scored 🙂
    • I sometimes get a little bit of info at games. It’s been spot on all summer so no reason to doubt it. Apparently Greaves has/is very close to signing (I was told he signed yesterday), but that seems a quick turnaround from playing for Hull on Saturday to putting pen to paper on Sunday. But he’s keen either way I think. Before we signed Forss, I was told we’re hoping to invest £20m+ in the squad. So we’re trying. Obviously I don’t know on who etc and if that includes wages, just something I’d heard. So seems there’s money there without having to sell Fry.
    • 6 goals conceded in 3 games. I just don’t get why we needed to disrupt the Djiksteel McNair Fry partnership I thought it done well last season. I would like to see that in the next game.
    • I think you had just as much vino as I had yesterday both makes us gobby🤪
    • I pulled up the Echo on Fry’s rating and Scott Wilson said that Fry got pulled at half time. Didn’t really offer any additional insight into his reasons for giving a 5/10. I thought Fry was very good albeit his distribution was a little ‘impatient’ at times.
