Boro vs West Bromwich Albion 1-1

Recommended Posts

Should just start Rhodes and gestede up top see if there still on same page like there were at rovers


Not that I'm agreeing or disagreeing but if that happens I will eat my own face.

WBA are actually further up the league than I thought they were. Hopefully we can give them a good rogering......and then play a game of football.

Watch us pull a result out of our ***. We're due one of those.


Not confident. West Brom are a very good side. Have picked up some decent results on the road this season. Think we'll lose. :(

Think we might see the 3 centre backs here, from necessity more than anything. No Friend is really not good for us. Will be interesting to see what happens in his absence. Any idea of Barragan's lay off?



Espinosa Ayala Gibson

Fabio Clayton Forshaw De Roon Downing/Husband

Stuani Negredo


Subs: Dimi, Fry, Husband/Downing, Leadbitter, Bamford, Traore, Gestede

Husband has no match fitness. He won't even be in the squad.


Neither did Bamford, to be fair and he made the squad immediately after joining.


It's kind of a necessity to have him in the squad, we don't have any other options for full back, Fabio is all we have barring an unfit Husband and an injured trio of Friend, Chambers and Barragan.


I can't see us intentionally starting with Gibson. I also can't see us intentionally avoiding an option who can play there being on the bench, we don't really have much of a choice.

Sounds like Barragan might be back from AK's presser. If that's the case then I imagine Husband probably won't be involved. Might be too quick to throw Barragan back in but even having him as an option on the bench would be fine as an alternative.


Sticking with my 3-5-2 prediction. But expecting Barragan will take the place of Husband on the bench.

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
