Boro v Oxford United (FA Cup) 3-2


Recommended Posts

I'm hoping boro are taking the game seriously as the lack of enthusiasm on the forum seems like most Boro fans think this game is a cert.

Living in Oxford I know that the guys down here are taking it seriously and the Oxford fans think we are there for the taking. Especially as they are bringing about 3500 !

 

That may be just from seeing us struggle to score this season and knowing we only scraped past Accrington in the last round.

From up close, they would see that we have only lost once to lower league opposition since AK came in (Fulham earlier this season, and we were playing De Sart and an unfit Ayala at CB by the time they won it), and have dispatched most of them fairly handily.

We shouldn't be too complacent, but I think this should be straightforward. 2-0 Boro.

I think it's guarantee that AK isn't taking this game lightly. He will obviously make changes as we should be head and shoulders above on paper regardless of who we play. But the players chosen will know that AK won't allow passengers so those hopefull of breaking into the first team will have to show something.

 

This game won't be treated as a walkover and expect a professional showing and a 2-0 win.

Oxford bringing 3,500 so it should be a great occasion for their supporters and players. But AK will be taking this seriously, a really good opportunity to progress into the last 8 of the FA Cup. Reckon we will put out a very strong Xl, 3-0 Boro. Can't wait, COME ON BORO.

This team for me. I don't think any players really need resting as they're only playing once a week but the new faces I've included is mainly because they need minutes on the pitch so they can be ready if we get a injury

Agent trekkers successfully infiltrated the Oxford supporters coach en route to the Riverside. Feel a bit lost in a sea of yellow and blue.

C'mon the Boro! 3-1.
