Boro V Arsenal 1-2

Recommended Posts

'Boro v ***nal: 8pm, Monday 17 Apr.

 

Given that there's not much else being talked about on here.... I wondered what anyone's thought's about the ***nal game are?

 

...Or has everyone lost interest now?!

 

Win this game, and as long as neither Hull nor Swansea get a result, then it's game on.

 

However, we're left hanging by a thread.

 

***nal are probably the weakest of the 'Big Four' teams that we have left to play. Probably the best chance to pick off a surprise result. Having said that, after their embarrassing result against Palace, The 4rse are probably going to be a bit more fired up to avoid back-to-back defeats (which is a shame).

 

Heart says 1-0 Boro....

 

Head says 2-0 to ***nal.

I thought this was covered under the "we're down" thread? :)

 

:D :D LOL - that made me laugh.

 

 

Like I said on a different thread, if we lose to ***nal and either of Hull or Swansea (both away from home) get a result against Stoke or Watford respectively.... then we're probably down.

 

If they both lose, then even if we lose, we've then still got Bournemouth and Sunderland to get back in it.

 

So we've got LOADS of lifelines still.... we just keep spunking them!!

Glad you did this Betamaxman as OMG was having difficulty preparing the thread so you have now done your first official match day thread. Perhaps you could fill in your opening post with some other useful and interesting facts and figures to make it a more concise opening post.

 

Hey with the way things are going for ***nal this could very well be a our first shock win of the season ,surely we are owed one for the sake of it.

This season has killed my passion for football.

 

It reminds me of Christmas morning as a kid. Each time waking up hoping for some magical present only be let down with the same old satsuma and then spent the rest of the day listening to drunk uncle ***head.

 

Only this happens every week :(

I'm getting to this point. I haven't really looked forward to a match for a few months because there's just a sad inevitability to it all.

Every life saving rope we are given is grasped with soapy hands. Not a chance.

These are times that try men's souls.  The summer solider and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their football club; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.  The Premier League, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: T'is dearness only that gives everything it's value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon it's goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as Premier League survival should not be highly rated.

***nal are a club in absolute turmoil right now, we could actually nick this one.

 

Thankfully, everything is hunky dory with us  ;)

That is the first post of yours that I have both understood and agreed with

I'll be honest with you Tyler, you struggling to understand things doesn't surprise me ;)

 

And another 0-0 you think? They're really spoiling us this season, aren't they? :)

Oh, and 0-0 Monday night

 

A 600 mile round trip for another 0-0, I really should know better. Personally pinning my last little ounce of optimism on a 1-0

    • As our leading scorer I'd be tempted to play Magic Marvin as the lone Striker with Tav behind and Roberts and Watmore on the wings.
    • Platt was my boyhood keeper, couldn't kick a ball straight, unless he kicked it straight into touch, but he was excellent for years, I would rate him on par with Schwarzer and I think the Aussie would have helped to keep us up if he hadn't gotten injured.
    • Given made 16 Boro appearances, Valdes 28 appearances and Randolph 106 appearances in a Boro shirt. Given was a 93 day maximum permitted loan but he kept 10 clean sheets in those 16 games. I'm pretty sure that Valdes will have been signed with the intention of him being around for longer than 28 games. Randolph's 106 games are maybe not what could be classed as a long serving tenure but a little more than a cameo in fairness to him. in contrast however Jim Platt made 481 appearances so I suppose by comparison they were all somewhat transient.
    • The big Auzzie was very good and for a long time.  I notice you have not mentioned Jim Platt who I rated highly also along with Pears.  For some reason I tend to regard Given and Randolph as cameo appearances which is not really fair   but who said life was fair - keep smiling
    • Some interesting replies on crowds returning.  I have a record of 65 + years of attending Boro matches and I'm anxious to keep it up but have one or three health problems so I can take no risks with Covid. transmissions.   I'd love to go but it won't be until I've been vacced etc.  If I can I'd love to go, even if its just the one game to keep up the record of at least one game in every season since 1953/4   keep smiling
