Boro vs Sunderland (FA Cup) 2-0 (Gestede, Braithwaite)

Recommended Posts

I bought my tickets before Christmas, and north and south both looked pretty full even then.

I'd be amazed if we haven't shifted 28,000 by Saturday

In his interview after the last match, Pulis said that he’s going to change the team for The cup match so that he can have a look at a few players. Normally I’d be dead against making too many changes for an FA cup match, but the circumstances are slightly different this year.  I’d say fair play Tony have a look at some players, but for goodness sake don’t change the goalkeeper, I can never see the point of resting goalkeepers.

 

To be fair, you need your backup keeper to have a bit of match sharpness in case he needs to come in with a moment's notice during a game.

 

That said, Dimi has looked shaky at best in the cup matches he's played this season, and I'd be far happier to see Randolph start.

The season ticket seats will have all shown as unavailable at the time I'd guess. It might be different now.

1 game won't bring any match sharpness. If anything, the whole 'rotate GK in cup games' shenanigan is probably just a morale thing. 

 

I'd be happy to see Randolph start too. 

 

I hope we see Braithwaiteitnaio start this game. I'd expect Pulis to try the whole Gestede-flick-on strategy he was so fond during his Stoke reign. I'd love to see Christie for the throw inns. He does it for Ireland, why not Boro. We might as well go full Pulis.

If I was a betting man I’d have 28k down as a guess

just looked on the stadium map. south and east practically sold out north half empty and west/corners half empty at best. i bet there is barely 25k

Chris Coleman says he’s likely to only have 11 fit senior players for Saturday’s trip to Middlesbrough. Sunderland have a crippling injury list.

Of like to see

 

Randolph

Christie

Ayala

Fry

Friend/Johnson

Tav

Forshaw/Baker

Clayton/Howson

Traore

Fletcher

Bamford

 

In a 442.

 

Give different people a run out in different positions. Now Fabio has asked to leave I wouldn't be opposed to seeing Johnson LB do we can see what he is like in case we need him in an emergency. Clayton only if he really hasn't been properly injured as no point risking him (I sadly don't believe he has been injured....)

Whoa whoa there Keith. You need to keep up a respectful journalistic standard. Can’t have you on the cover of the tabloids now can we. Just looking out for you.

    • Not sure I've see enough to think we're about to start winning games... still probably would have lost on Saturday without their huge defensive error. On current form would expect 6 points from those fixtures. One win, three draws.  If Hull (H) or Barnsley (H) is a convincing win then I might feel more optimistic. 
    • So... We'll get 3...? 😂 
    • How long does it take for an application to fans forum to be decided?  Surely it shouldn’t take more than a month, if we haven’t heard anything back by end of this month then I think we should write it off as a bad job tbh. My use of end of the month for a deadline based on the fact that if we have been accepted before then we will need time to arrange a representative to attend and meetings are usually earlier in the month, also if we haven’t been invited as a member to the December meeting that will mean it’s taken over 2 meetings periods. Not having a go at the forum club or it’s members just wondering how long does it take to say yes you can join, or no you cannot join, as the agenda for the November meeting made no mention of our application.    
    • P Colchester  v  Bradford. H Crawley  v  Morecambe. H Exeter  v  Cheltenham. H Forest Green  v  Plymouth. P Grimsby  v  Newport. D L/Orient  v  Scunthorpe. (Novak) H Macclesfield  v  Mansfield.
