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

Recommended Posts

Looks a good team to me. Bit sad that bamford isn't starting, he's been great whenever I've seen him

 

2-0 Boro with Assombalonga and bamford to score.

 

For me Bamford has been our best attacking player whenever I've seen him this season but seems to get dropped at every opportunity. I think Monk just isn't convinced by him for some reason.

Funny how when Monk puts out a 4231 with Clayton Leadbitter DMs it is attack minded but when AK done it, it was ultra cautious...

 

Well a 4-2-3-1 isn't in nature a defensive formation by any means. It's a pretty standardised format nowadays from plenty of teams across Europe.

 

It is what you make of it, absolutely more about the philosophy. With Karanka, you know it was more of a 4-4-1-1 or a 4-5-1, cautious on the wing, wingers had to cover defensively or Karanka would fume. And I can't understand how anyone would think Christie and Traore on paper equals defensive on the right wing.

Happy to see that Friend and Howsons poor performances have been noticed. Only disappointed that Bamford is on the bench but I suppose Downing has really knuckled down and that deserves some recognition and Traore must have reacted well to being dropped last time and not being sold. Hope we see some big performances from those two wingers today and a goal by Britt. Steady 2-0 win with britt and Downing getting the goals.

I've been trying for 15 mins to purchase the game on iFollow, any other overseas lads have a direct link to the right page? It's got me stuck in a loop

Looks like GM is reverting to the tried-and-trusted 4-2-3-1.

 

Clayton & Leadbitter in central midfield ought to give us some control. Lets hope Baker, Downing & Traore can do the business going forward (i.e. getting some service to Britt and maybe chipping in with a goal or two themselves).

 

Still feeling somewhat optimistic. Bolton are lacking form and currently propping up the table. Should be a good opportunity for the lads to show what they can do.

 

Don't expect an easy game but we really ought to be looking for 3 points today.

It's not on iFollow because it has been selected for foreign TV coverage. There will be plenty of streams for you to watch the game for free on.

Oh really? It says on their website that you can purchase it. Must have been a last minute switch. Thanks for putting me or if my misery, that was an infuriating situation for a while!

    • I absolutely did, like I said I was made to feel very welcome and I think we're an asset to utilise. 😊
    • 1. 1-1 2. Same as the Bournemouth, injury dependant.  3. Yes he'll make his debut, if Fletcher is injured I think he'll start. No hat-tricks in this game. 4. Leo will go full Graeme Souness and plant a Boro flag in the centre circle. 5. Power Rangers surely?
    • When - Saturday 26th September, 2020, KO 15:00 Where - The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium Why - Because it's time for football, duh! So, this bizarre season continues with a trip to QPR, and a ground where we've had very mixed fortunes over the years. Last season we drew 2-2, back when the world was normal. Well as normal as it can be when you have a Wotsit in the White House and Wurzel Gummidge in Number 10, that is. Our Lord and Saviour Neil of Warnock will still be self isolating with Covid-19 for this, so expect to see monseuirs Jepson and Blackwell in the dugout. No idea where Leo is. If anyone has seen him, please return to The Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough, England, TS3 6RS. Talking points: Score Predictions? Lineup? Will Chuba Akpom make his debut, scoring his first of many hat-tricks for the club? Will Leo appear out of nowhere mid-match, storm onto the pitch and headbutt the ref? Who are the better Rangers? Queen's Park? US Army? Hermione (G)Ranger? Oh and just because it will never not be funny:    
    • Regarding Walker - a long long way from making the grade. If he can do it at this level is more than debatable 
    • Exactly and annoyingly it's most likely that the PL clubs will be affected the least.
