Boro v Tottenham (A) 0-1

Recommended Posts

Think we'll go with same XI we played against WBA. Defensive lineup needed against Spurs. Maybe see Chambers on the bench. Hope Traore stays on the right if any changes are made mid-game. Looked ineffective on the left... maybe he was just tired.

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

 

I think Spurs are better than United DS, but I get your point. Swansea also went to Liverpool and won. Burnley beat Liverpool at home. Watford won away at ***nal. I think Palace and Hull both beat Southampton. Sooner or later we need to take a top-half scalp.

Think it was a mixture of both to be honest. Stronger on the right and looked very tired. He looked good on the left vs. Accrington but that's entirely different to playing against Walker/Trippier.

At least we shouldn't be able to complain about the ref this week since we've got the worlds best ref!

Vertonghen is injured so both of Spurs CB's, Dier and Alderweireld, are right footed so that should help Traore on the counterattack taking on the left sided CB when Rose is upfield. I'd stick with the same forward three.

He didn't really get to challenge Nyom either. I'd prefer him on the right as well, he doesn't seem to be willing to take a shot from distance. Hopefully, he adds that to his game eventually.

I think this is a game when we all expect nothing so anything gained is a bonus, just looking for a good , honest performance and see if that can lead to anything.

 

Probably need 17 points from 15 games to avoid relegation, any point here would be excellent.

 

We went to ***nal, Man City and got a point,almost got so muxh more from Man Utd so who knows.

 

UTB!

Rose is out injured, so it will be Davies.

 

Davies is good, but not as quick as Rose, and certainly not as quick as Traore.

Well that's cheered me up!

 

This match has been moved to lunch time for TV

 

It's on at 17.30 on BT Sport, I think.

 

Definitely evening not lunchtime.

It's more pacemaker than pace on that left flank!

More so with the full back over lapping! Plus theres not really any other option with Gaston still injured

Same starting 11 as west brom for me, partly because we played quite well and partly due to a lack of options with Friend, Chambo and Gaston unavailable. I think our usual style is actually perfectly set up for this type of game, keep it tight and try to nick something, as we've shown at ***nal, City and we were only a few minutes away at Man U. I have a sneaky suspicion we can get a point here, although I'll imagine it won't be a classic for the neutrals. A point would he a very good result so I'm going for a 0-0 or maybe even a crazy 1-1. If we score, I'll go Stuani.

    • We beat forest with pace , effort and will to win tonight . whoever it is would have to be good at those traits . Even Britt can not be critisised tonight , he put a shift in and scored . Would we offer him another contract on lesser terms ? Only Neil will know that . on Grosicki / Bolasie , why sign old , high wage players ?  Massive no .  
    • Delighted with that win. Keeps us in the mix for the playoffs. Oh for two or three quality signings. Bola is unrecognisable. Full credit to him and the coaching team. Howson was at his best tonight. Been a fan of his since watching him at Leeds. Tonight was one of the few times I have watched him and though I remember why I liked you.
    • A thoroughly deserved victory & typical Boro who were cruising had us biting our fingernails for the final few minutes We should have been 4 goals clear & here we were hanging on But we came through & winning at a team on 7 games unbeaten run, apart from the final 3 minutes, quite comfortably  Well done Boro & NW
    • Thats kind of what I meant. They had a lot of possession and passed it around quite nicely, but without really troubling us defensively. Whereas we had to chase a lot, but when we did counter we looked pacey and dangerous.  
    • Don't think they played the better football really, by and large they played the football we let them play, in front of us and horizontally. We didn't let them threaten at all, which is what we set up to do, they can have as much of the ball as they want in their own half! Thought we were excellent today! Howson MOTM, Tav 2nd place and probably Bola in 3rd, thought he was quality defensively again. Special shout out to Britt too, one of his best games ever for us. Also I see Forest fans calling the red card soft but IMO he should have been off for the Stamp seconds before anyway so it evens out. Think they got very lucky card wise, you could argue Ribeiro should have already been off & Knockaert could have had 2 yellows in 2 seconds with his stunt at the end.
