Superb work BU ... Far too good for this season though!

 

Only reason I am hoping we scrape a point is that I hate Liverpool so on that basis I am going for a 1-1 draw with Liverpool having 27 shots to our 1 and Paddy getting the goal

Despite the fact we are relegated, i want to see a team that is gonna play a part next year and give it a go against Liverpool and let go of any reason to be nervous like we did when we played them in a cup a few years ago that was beautiful -

Gk - Dimi

Lb - Friend (if staying, if not Husband)

Cb - Gibson (i know what you are gonna say, he wont stay next season but I think he deserves a standing ovation at the end).

Cb - Fry

Rb- Fabio (he might stay but doubt it)

Lw - Fischer

Cm- Leadbitter

Cm - Foreshaw

Rw- Downing

St - Bamford

St Gestede

Generally in the past we have always given Liverpool a decent game of football, all I hope is that we continue to do so, not too much to ask for is it?

 

Can see a spanking though 3 nil minimum to Pool

I hope we take a point off them so they lose out on CL just so I have something to say back to my smug Liverpool supporting friends when they go on about Boro being relegated. That's right I'm a good friend :)

I agree.

 

Tomorrow COULD be the last time Boro play in the Premier League EVER! **(You never know).

 

I hope they [the players] put up a decent fight.

 

 

 

 

 

**(I doubt Ipswich thought they'd still be in the Championship 15 years later after going down)!!

De Roon's other half has just tweeted that Marten is on the bench for today's game

 

Change in formation or game time for a less regular player I wonder.

 

It'll just be Clayton, Forshaw and Grant in the middle of the park. Play two holding midfielders and we will get annihilated.

    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
    • there’s two considerations for me in this. Firstly, I think some of this depends on where we are going to play Djik. If he is now a CB then I would want a RWB to come in and Spence is the most obvious choice. He can challenge Jones for the spot and competition will be good for both of them.  I don’t want it to be the case that if Jones has a dip in form, suspension or injury that we are having to juggle several players about. the secondary issue is where is Spence’s head. Does he want to come back or is he done with Middlesbrough. I don’t want anyone that may be disruptive in the dressing room. I am not saying he is or isn’t I have no knowledge either way but I would want to know where his head is at.
