Boro v Derby 0-3

Recommended Posts

 

Nice 0-1 to derby you have their once shotton gets an own goal

 

I'm walking out before kick-off if I find out Shotton's playing.

 

To be fair that is a very poor team. Im thinking it will be same team as wednesday barring forshaw for howson. Clayton on the bench.

 

Not sure Leads has 3 games in 6 days in him anymore

 

i actually put that team on as a test to see what reaction it would get. because it is the most negative defensive team i could put out without making it a blatant micky take. 4cb's, 2 fullbacks 3 defensive barely creative cm's and britt. :D

 

shotton and leadbitter getting early abuse but still forgetting gibbo at left back and only 1 attacking player lol. 

 

i was bored  :P

 

Of course you did ;)

When did Clayton last play a competitive game? It must be about a month ago now, I'm hoping he'll be sharp enough to come into the team.

Which BORO will turn up, who will be played, what formation will we play. That’s the issue, we don’t have an identity. This game is the game to really show us who we are and where we are as a club. How far we have come and where we are heading.

 

We might lack a philosophical identity on the pitch right now but I think the personnel and formation are pretty much a given right now. I might be wrong but things have been pretty consistent since the Reading game.

Is there another thread about our starting XI? Apologies I must have missed it if there is. And yes, Derby are one of the most in-form teams in the league. Which part of that angers you so much? So far today I have been called a racist and been berated for starting a thread about the team I would pick for today and mentioning that our opponents are currently 3rd in the form table (always based on the past 6 games by the way not 5) so we need to be at it from the start.

 

Weird.

 

:huh:

 

People usually do starting XI's in the matchday thread, making a new one just dilutes the conversation between two threads.

 

I don't know what gave you the impression that I was angry about what you'd said, especially given I used the word interesting....

 

Other points:

 

To say form is only EVER done over 6 games is as ridiculous as it is wrong.

 

The racist comment was clearly tongue in cheek, so don't get your knickers in a twist over it.

 

You seem quite over dramatic, just chill out a bit.

GAME DAY.

COME ON BORO.

 

3 points is a bare minimum today to consolidate our position in the top 6. Going 2-0 Boro.

Yep agreed think Monk has at least settled on a formation, like you said it's been pretty consistent since Reading, and we've won 4 out of those 5.

Current form tables usually are based on the last 6 games

Can’t see us keeping a clean sheet so I hope the forwards are firing

No, not over dramatic, just feeling my way into the forum and not wanting to upset anybody. Form is always based on last 6 games. That is just how it is. Derby are 3rd and we are 3 or 4 spots below them. I think it was a relevant point to make. Big test for us today against a good side in form.

 

The criticism from some supporters, and I can empathise with their concerns, is that we have not done it against a top half side in form. I point to Sheff Utd to counter that argument but as I said I can see the crux of their opinion. Today, we have a very much in-form, top side visiting the Riverside.

 

Time to lay down a marker for the rest of the season Boro.

 

Big day ahead.

Jimmy can’t deny 4 from 5 is good but lets also remember they are bottem clubs. Today is a test, the sum of our worth.

    • Yes OC it’s amazing the difference a coaching team that knows what it’s doing can make. I think this is building towards a good season 
    • I think the coaches we now have can improve all the players at the club... may be a coincidence but the improvement of the U23 and U18 sides may be due a little to a number of them featuring in training sessions with first team and that can only help their progress...  they seem to have the knack of giving confidence to younger players and the team spirit has changed completely because of it 
    • Good post. Very hard to disagree with any part of it. Dijksteel and Bola do look like they are starting to blossom. Warnock did say that he thinks Browne will get game time when we opt to play 433 so I look forward to seeing him get his chance too
    • Sadly Marske's march to Wembley has been halted after a narrow away defeat by Brackley (well. it was closer than Venlo-Ajax), but the Pool and Darlo both through to first round proper and looking forward to a possible draw against slumbering giant Wunderland (or more likely an away trip to Torquay)  
    • I championed this lad last season when he was getting slated. I looked at his physical attributes and thought he would be worth a go in a holding midfield role but goodness me the lad has shone like a star playing in defence this season. He is strong and powerful with a great turn of pace but I've been extremely impressed with how he has held his own in aerial battles too. If you also add to that his reading of the game and how comfortable he is on the ball then it's even more impressive.  I've noticed one or two weaknesses in terms of his positioning and concentration at times where he has been done with a little one two or a player running off his shoulder but that's being overly critical really considering he is learning all the time in his new role. I'd also like to point out that young Bola is making huge strides this season. The pair of them are looking like good signings so well done to Jonny Woodgate for identifying them and for the legend Warnock and his staff for improving their games and recognising their potential in different roles. Now let's see the same happen with young Browne who I think also has plenty of raw talent and physical attributes to make it. One final message for the scousers. Hands off Virgil Van Djiksteel !
