Boro v Tottenham (A) 0-1

Recommended Posts

My Spurs supporting colleague says they have a couple of key players out injured which means they will be forced into a formation change that doesn't offer much going forward so he's not so confident of a win for them, so I'm going to be optimistic and go for a 0-0.

I like rampant. rampant means gaping holes! If we are strong defensively we have a great chance.

 

All heart though. 2 goals in this at the most. get your money on under 2.5 goals.

I don't see how rampant means gaping holes.

My vision of rampant is throwing as many people pushing forward therefore scoring many many goals, like a constant onslaught... leaving room to counter.

 

I now realize you now just mean "Too Good" which is fair enough. My bad.

Heart says 1-1, head says 3-1 Spurs.

 

I'd love it if we could get Gaston in the XI for this. With him and Traore on form, we could have a chance of an ***nal repeat.

 

On his squad's fitness and availability:

"Gaston Ramirez is still recovering. I hope he can be training with us next week, maybe Monday or Tuesday"

If Hull can draw at Old Trafford then I see no reason we can not draw at White Hart Lane

Chambers isn't certainly back, is he? Presser said he's not 100% so not sure or something, didn't it?

 

Hopeful but not sure if he will. Pretty much how I feel about him coming back too. :)

I think we need to go to win and we might end up with a draw so my line up would be

 

.......................................Valdes.........................................

Fabio............Gibson.........Chambers (if fit)..........Friend

......................Leadbitter....De Roon................................

Troare...........................Bamford.............................Downing

.....................................Negredo.............................................

 

Crucially with this we can get goals even from our cdms while still protecting the back four.

It'll be 4-3-3 for the rest of the season. Especially after we've just spent money on another midfielder.

Yes, think you're right on that.

 

I'd really like to see this team, but it's asking a lot with things as they are (injuries/Ramirez):

 

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

-- Fabio -- Chambers -- Gibson -- Friend

---------- De Roon --- Clayton ------------

---------------- Guedioura -------------------

--- Traore ------------------- Ramirez ------

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

Does anyone know how the knock Gorgeous took against Stanley is looking? Would be good to have him in contention although admittedly I though Barragan actually had a solid enough game Tuesday

 

Edit: nevermind just saw that AK said he's ruled out

I really ke the look of that team if we are setting up 433. I would play Forshaw instead of one of Clayton or de Roon against the weaker sides though.

Id go for:

 

Valdes

Barragan

Chambers

Gibson

Fabio

Clayton

DeRoon

Forshaw

Downing

Traore

Gestede

 

Shore up the centre, win back possesion and get the ball wide asap and whip it in. Gestede could clear all their corners too hopefully

    • I'd like us to go back to 4 at the back now Tav is back.               Bettinelli Dijksteel fry McNair Bola                  Morsy          Saville                            Tav Kebano                 Watmore                 Akpom Reason I prefer 4 at the back is that I like both Bola and dijksteel but neither are creative. By having a flat back 4 and morsy sat in front of them (no where near the oppositions box) then we can focus on playing a more dynamic game ahead of those 5 without much fear of counters. Plus were playing bloody coventry, we don't need 7 dedicated defenders on the pitch.  Kebano, watmore and Tav all need to see more ball in the oppositions 3rd and I think saville would probably be the best of our average midfielders to help facilitate that because he covers a lot of grass and links things up. Howson is badly in need of a rest.
    • @Red Rocket @Tom Would you be interested in a zoom call at some point to discuss?
    • For those of us old enough to remember, Dusty Bin would be an upgrade on Assombalonga! Apologies if any of Dusty's family is reading this.
    • He preferred Gestede to Bamford then sold Bamford and bought Saville!
