Boro v Bolton (A) 3-0 (Britt (2) Johnson)

Recommended Posts

IMO, the main problem of having Gestede in the team as someone to hit it long to (certainly in the Preston game) is that we weren't hitting it long to him often enough. We know his qualities at this level, we know that he's a limited footballer but one of the best forwards in this division in aerial battles. And yet we didn't utilise that effectively. If you're going to put him in the team ahead of other forwards, you should be using that option more often. You don't want to play such one-dimensional football for sure but if you want to play the ball on the floor for the majority of the game, he shouldn't really be on the pitch.

 

Yeah precisely this, we're down near the bottom of the leader board on long balls played, it's always good to have that outlet but with three quick strikers who like to make runs in behind I think the options for going long are suitably there. Feels like the team has a more cohesive style without Rudy as much as I think he is a brilliant player. He's a focal point in a formation that doesn't call for a focal point.

I think I might try to watch Man City v Liverpool in a pub near the ground if anyone gets down early and fancies meeting up?

i don't like to give score predictions without seeing the team first, but I feel strangely confident.

Not sure this has been mentioned, but for anyone who isn't going to the game there appears to be streams available for it online.

Bolton won't be signing Baptista before the game at the weekend.

Given our inconsistency its hard to predict. The break may have helped sort out weakness in positional play and tactic, but we will struggle. I believe we will click and hammer someone but inconsistency will be a norm for a while longer. Bolton have struggled but as they are at home I'm going to go for a scrappy 1-0.

God dammit, how annoying that this game is on TV in Denmark when I'm going to watch my local team at the same time. Got free tickets for the whole family so will have to go now, and they are usually crap when I go. How annoying.

The perfect game to come back to. Bolton will be low on confidence having just been smashed by Hull and we should be beating them comfortably if we turn up.

 

I'd love to see this team:

Randolph

Christie Fry Ayala Fabio

Clayton Howson

Baker

Traore Britt Bamford

 

I think that Adama can test himself against Bolton and should be doing well against them personally. It's worrying if we're not willing to give him a go against a lower opposition.

 

I'd be delighted if Bamford can score and I think Britt also needs a goal after his performance at Forest.

 

A clean sheet and comfortable 3-0 win.

 

Bamford (18 mins) and Britt x2 ( 34 and 64).

 

I think it's harsh to drop Gibson.

 

Wow, not sure what planet I was on there ! Gibson over Ayala every time!!

Hate to say it but Bolton could have their first win of the season today.

Still waiting for Boro to give some sign that they are gonna be challenging the top teams in the Championship this season.

Early days yet I know but they keep dropping points that they may need at the end of the season.

    • He scored 19 goals in his last season for us, 14 in the League despite only playing three quarters of the games. The man might have missed the odd game but he was absolutely on fire his last season with us when he played. In the end, maybe we did need his wages off the books. But I'm not sure that's the whole story being told. We also clearly needed to shift Downing off the wage books, moreso even as the productivity was not even close to being worth what we were paying and we weren't in the Premier League when it happened. But it doesn't make what he alleges we did any better. If Viduka was handled similarly then that would also be wrong; it's more to do with the willingness to break agreements made over a handshake or even just general treatment of players fans hold a strong connection with than whether we were right to try and keep them on or not. It'd be good if the chairman never got us into these daft financial arrangements to begin with and maybe we wouldn't be making decisions like that. I think people gave him the benefit of the doubt around what eventually happened in 2009 because we were not long since a club operating in European football and tried to get back to that whilst also cutting back. The risks we've taken that have hampered us most in recent years however have taken place whilst we were already in the Championship and showing very little threat of getting out of it at the right end so I'm not sure why anyone would continue to give him the benefit of the doubt other than they hold some kind of grudge against Downing. I know you're specifically talking about Viduka btw NB4 but I can definitely see how, if we were willing to treat Schwarzer and Downing so poorly, it could be applied to just about anyone including Viduka.
    • Btw I loved viduka at times for us, if he was consistently as good as he could be he would have been one of the best strikers in the league because he had everything. I just don't think we did anything wrong with his contract situation.
    • We aren't under any obligation to start contract talks with anyone at a particular time. Viduka was one of the best paid players in our team at a point where we were about to go on a huge cost cutting exercise as a result over over paying for players for years, of which he was certianly one of them. Add to that that he was very poor or injured for us for long periods up until the last 6 months of his contract, I don't think we did anything wrong there.
    • I think my favourite part about that post Uwe is that I knew it was coming. 😄
    • Now Slayer are sadly no more, maybe we could sign Kerry King as a defender. He might not be very mobile at his age, but it'd be a brave opposition striker who tried to get past him...
