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.

    • Interesting how the gazette are starting to run Pearson articles... 
    • Didn't realise they had started to turn the corner, a few years back it didn't matter what form they were in when playing us we would never beat em, this winless run started in 1974 & finished in 1999 We fared better since but I don't like playing Forest at all, it's always one fixture, Leeds been the other when in the same league, that I look for & hope they're out the way early doors 
    • Hourihane is very good and proven , LM LW AM . 3 year younger than Grosicki at 29 .
    • I have to stay up to watch my Buccs beat The Saints! .. I can watch the game and still manage 3 hours of sleep before work 😛  Anyone else watching it?
    • So, it's time again .. the time where Assombalonga misses more sitters than on a normal day, cause we are away to Nottingham Forest, his former club. I'm just glad we never play Peterborough! It's this Wednesday at 7 PM weird British time btw, if you are into self masochism and other forms of self inflicted agony. Forest have finally gotten their sh1t together and their last 5 games = W W D D D, a nice unbeaten run after a terrible start to the season. This must be the result of hiring Chris Hughton.  Our vey own Boro is totally hit or miss these days, but we have still managed to also get 9 points of the last 5 games : L W L W W, so we can only hope it's the winning Boro that shows up. This time it could be nice with a win and a clean sheet ... Who am I kidding, we are nailed to go one down within the first 15 minutes ... as usual ..  I actually predict a draw, cause we haven't had one of those in 12 league games!  The bookies have it as a tight game: 2.65 - 3.15 - 2.85  .. These are the decimal odds for home, draw and away, if you wonder. I don't know the weird odds you guys love, but hey .. put your money on the draw.  In the reverse game at The Riverside, we beat Forest 1-0 (Marvinho) in October, when our stadium still was a fortress that wasn't Karankanized, like when we lost 0-1 to Brum last Saturday! So, let's have some quetions!  1: Which team and formation should NW go with? 2: Are you happy with a draw and why/why not? 3: Will Britt miss a penna? 4: Can Chris Hughton make Forest a play off candidate? 5: Can NW make us a play off candidate? 6: Who will be the first to write "this is a game for Patrick Roberts" and who will be the first to be baffled, when Folarin is subbed on in the 88th minute and Roberts aint? 7: Burger King or Mc Donalds?  If you want a look from the other site (pun intended) here you go: https://forums.vitalfootball.co.uk/forums/100-forest.60/ (no Boro thread up, when I was writing this) UTB!
