Boro V Arsenal 1-2

Recommended Posts

Some people just don't have any fight in em  :rolleyes:  :@

 

I really want to CT. but just watching the Boro since Christmas has knocked it all out of me. Dont get me wrong, come Monday against all my best judgement I'll have hope for a win and the disappointment if we don't. I think it's more of a self protection kind of thing I'm going through now

For every Forshaw pirouette do a shot

When the commentator mentions that SG and BG are related, do a shot

Every corner that fails to beat the first defender, do a shot

Every cross that has no one in the box, do a shot

When we willingly turn attack into defence, do a shot

 

I reckon I could be absolutely smashed by half time

 

The corner thing alone would have us all hammered!

we win 2 and draw 2, thats 32 points. if swans n hull lose all games except the one they draw with each other we stay up. now that would be funny.

Just a thought, but should we not be using the remaining fixtures to try and formulate next seasons plan by utilising the players who will be staying ?. On the basis of that I would like to see Gestede and Bamford starting so that they can get used to playing together, sorry Alvaro but you will be back in the sunshine next season.

God as our #9. Don't lose faith. It's equally plausible.

Personally, I think we should just play the best players we have at our disposal. That said, given injuries/form it might be the case that both are fairly close to the same at the moment. I can't see us being stripped apart next season, as we've not a whole lot of contracted assets really.

I agree play the best team until it's mathematically impossible to stay up. And even then we need some wins to take a bit of confidence into next season

I agree that we should play the best players that we have, but let us be honest, Negrado, Ramirez etc do not have the heart for this club, and therefore are not our best players. We would be better off with players like Bamford and Gestede who see a future here.

This is quite apt. God only ever had one plan, put to much emphasis on the return of the prodigal son and works in mysterious ways. :s

A fair amount of the ***nal fans on both of their forums are hoping they will lose to get read of their Wenger, i think if we create an heck of atmosphere fully get behind the team their fans wont do the same for their team, 12th man really will hopefully really show in the desire of the players on the pitch. Where as their players might not fancy it at much if we do that.

I think ***nal have long since not really fancied it when teams get 'in to them'. If our players can really get up for it, and be in their faces, then I reckon we could rattle them.

 

(The thing is though..... we're all getting up for the game now, and thinking we can do something.... and so we'll be all the more disappointed when our players come on the pitch and pass the ball around aimlessly, before rolling over yet again)!!

 

COME ON BORO.... We can do this !!!

    • Good post, @BluebirdinExile. We do have a manager who knows how to grind out results, but the players don't seem to be following his instructions lately! This is the sort of game that makes me glad I don't bet on results, because I have no idea what'll actually happen. We're hopelessly inconsistent atm.
    • Hi all, Cardiff fan in peace always had a soft spot for Boro ever since seeing your support in Cardiff early doors in the FA cup in the 90's.     Anyway after reading some comments about it will be a walk in a park for Cardiff, I dont think it will be.  We are beginning to look tired, we are not used to the high press we are currently playing at the moment, if the scores are remaining level after 70 mins then I can see you sneaking something. You have a manager who knows how to grind out results in this division, so its not all doom and gloom for you.   Anyway i hope we win on Saturday, but after that I hope you at least make the playoffs.    All the best to you 👍
    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.
