Pre-Match press conference about to begin

  • Getting Accrington Stanley in the next round of the FA Cup, should we be looking to go on a cup run, or focus on survival in the league?
  • Are we going to sign anyone? With Downing set to leave to Palace, and Ayala seemingly out also, surely we have some replacements lined up?
  • What are your opinions on Watford as opponents? How have the two teams got on and changed since the last match at the Riverside?
  • What is your preferred line-up for this game?
  • Who hasn't got over Nugent leaving?

Squad Selection

Guzan; Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Friend; Clayton, De Roon, Forshaw; Stuani, Ramirez; Negredo

Agree with Jimmy and not just because I am going to the game I really think it is about time we got 3 points against Watford who seem to be a bit of a bogey team at the moment.

 

A win here would ease a lot of pressure and I believe we can do just that in fact maybe Gestede will get his first Boro goal if he plays

Love the opening post!

 

Very important that we pick up points this month with lots of our rivals losing players to AFCON and us having an easy run of games. I'd like to see 7 or 8 points between us and the relegation zone by the end of the month.

AK said in his press conference that Valdes and Fischer will be back but Gaston and Barragan are out

 

No Gaston :@ Guess we will have Fischer and Stuani behind Negredo then. After a strong game against Wednesday I think Stuani deserves to play ahead of Traore unless Fischer isn't ready to start.

I'm struggling to remember when Gaston got injured if it was in a game?

 

He was rubbish against Leicester so I don't know if he was playing with a knock then? Came off for Downing towards the end but didn't seem to be limping.

    • Well let’s hope the weather favours those making the journey and the predicted blank of snow holds off.  I can remember my early days pumped up full of beer travelling around the country to games in the back of freezing vans. The worst I remember was a crammed Luton huddled together in the compartment above the cab trying to stay alive. The spilt beer and urine had turned to ice sending everyone flying every time it stopped, took off or cornered. The only stops allowed were for petrol, or a pub so containers a pipe and funnel were essential equipment.  Although I did hire a new Ford Granda in 1980 for a 1 - 1 cup night match at Portsmouth. Terry Cochrane scored, latter we became good friends, but it was a toxic atmosphere and lost my bother who took off while being threatened. Drove around town until we found him being chased down the street by a few hundred agitated morons. Picked him up on the move but someone cracked the windscreen. I remember leaving work at lunch, drove down and back after the game and in to work next day. BORO mad back then.  
    • I didn't see the problem with it personally, whatever the rules actually are, I feel like it should be a goal. It's not a foul as its a challenge by his own player. It's not a head injury so it doesn't need immediate attention. And you're gonna have a hard time convincing me he's not making the most of that just to stop play anyway. Admittedly, he probably doesn't realise himself who's actually stood on his foot but note that by the time the shot hits the back of the net, there only seems to be one player who realises he's down and is asking for play to be stopped... the man who stood on his foot to begin with.
    • excellent news    
    • Happy birthday, 'boss' 😉
    • Arsenal scored before the ref blew the whistle, it's his responsibility to manage the game. He clearly wanted to stop it, as he indicated no goal to Smith-Rowe as soon as the ball went in to the net.  However the quick shot beat the refs decision and reaction time, therefore it's a goal. Based on the rules you can't blame anyone in this situation.
