Boro vs. QPR (A) 3-0 (Ayala, Friend, Traore)

Recommended Posts

What team would you put out for this game?

gk - Randolph, rb - Christie cb Gibson cb Fry lb Fabio/friend cm Leadbitter cm Howson Rw troare cam and lw Downing or braithwaite doesnt matter which way around st Rudy

When was the last time Boro won a game with a dubious decision?

Carling cup final, zenden with double kick from the spot. Btw im joking but i cant remember many recently tbh.

First goalscorer and score predictions?

1-1 qpr to get the first then park the bus, leadbitter last equaliser with a rocket.

Can Boro replicate the Golden Era of the 15/16 Season with Tony Pulis in the director's seat?

Not with this team currently

Why would you drop Shotton thomas, out of interest? 

He's barely put a foot wrong since he came into the side.

I don't really think we have any other option but to play him at the moment, Christie was poor in his last 2 outings and doesn't really seem to fit what Pulis wants from his fullbacks. Particularly playing behind Traore, who is getting better at tracking back into the defensive block, Shotton is definitely more disciplined and has been nothing but solid defensively. The only thing that is frustrating about him is he is desperately poor on the ball for a fullback. Against Fulham his distribution was shocking, I lost count of how many times he gave the ball away, with passes that didn't even look close to any of our players. Having since checked his pass completion was only 36%! He only made 12 complete passes out of 36 in the 90 minutes. To put that in perspective Traore's was the next worse % at 54. I'm hoping they're looking at a few names that are more comfortable with the ball, naturally suited to the fullback role and fit Pulis' physical requirements.

No chance. Pulis slated Britt’s finishing after the match.

The interviewer specifically asked him about Britts miss, it was a ***ty question and poor 'journalism' by the amateurs at BBC Tees. Why did he ignore the 2 glaring misses by 6 million Gestede? And 1 by 9 million Braithwaite? Pulis responded saying he will be upset to miss that chance as that's why he was brought to the club at such a cost, then moved on to talk about how many other chances we had. Hardly a slating.

Not sure it was poor journalism. It’s got people talking

Yes, odd all round.

When through on goal, Britt was unlucky to hit the bar whereas Big Rudy just kind of fell over the ball.

Hope Britt gets a chance now the side has settled a bit.

Britt would have scored both the chances Gestede missed, I doubt you'd even see Gestede in the position to miss the one that Britt did.

This is why I didn't get starting Gestede over Britt, Fulham are a possession side which would mean more space in behind on the break, seemed like the game for him.

 

From what I remember QPR played quite a high line, so I'd go for Britt to start this one.

Not just because I am going to the game I will be disappointed if we do not get the three points from the game.

 

To be honest I feel we are not too far from being a good solid team once again and we will be difficult to beat.

Would he?  He didn't manage it at Forest or Wolves or against Burton etc.  I'm not fan of Gestede, let's face it he is what he is, but Britt has missed easy chances this season and will miss them again.  He wasn't unlucky against Fulham either, he had a relatively easy chance and just messed it up.

Britts chance was significantly harder than both of Gestedes. I'm confident Britt would've finished Gestedes 1v1.

It wasn't significantly harder. He's a professional footballer not some bloke playing for a pub side. I reckon most on here could have put that away.

 

If I say I'm confident he wouldn't have finished it then does that mean I'm right? Of course not as there's no way of proving or disproving it. I've given you examples of one v one chances he's had this season that he didn't score from and indeed didn't even hit the target with. But of course he would have scored this time...just because? :)

Britt should have scored. No doubt about that.

    • I've always kind of enjoyed being that ugly team that no one wants to face (or watch) 🤠
    • good win that. its great going onto the other teams messageboards and seeing the same comments after every game. here are the typical ones.  Boro are terrible, diabolical, very poor, awful team etc etc. often the same posters comments say we(not us) cant pass the ball, we keep hoofing it long, our midfield are awful. only 1 shot on target all game --------------------------------- for any oppo fans, yep other teams struggle against us because, we work harder, close down faster, tackle harder and we are more organised and actually have several really good players. just want to hope we dont start scoring more because we'll take some stopping.
    • We haven’t conceded a goal from open play yet in 8 games. Penalty and corners only.
    • BBC Tees said that the touted McNair swap was with Stoke for Sam Clucas. McNair has been brilliant so far this season so it seems like it was the right decision to keep him.
    • I'm delighted with the win. Warnock has worked absolute wonders with Fry, Dijksteel and McNair. This season I think we're going to be similar to our promotion winning team under Karanka, with the way that we'd do well against the better teams and struggle against the not as good teams. Finding a knack of winning them games like today is going to help us repeat them gritty wins against the lesser sides. Our style of football is going to be frustrating at times, sure, but I can easily accept it as we're going in the right direction after several years of drifting backwards in a seemingly unstoppable manner until Warnock came in. Considering the shambolic state that we were in last season, the incredibly tough opening fixture list and the disappointment in the transfer market, Warnock has done a fantastic job to turn us into such a highly effective team in such a short space of time. Some fans were similarly moaning about Karanka's style of play in our promotion season. However, he got us promoted in the end and even the most idealistic of us will have fantastic memories from his time here; certainly more good memories than the three and a half season since he left when we've had next to no good memories. If Gibson's track record is anything to go by then we're going downhill whenever Warnock leaves anyway so maybe we can stockpile the negativity to one side for then? We may as well try to enjoy these times of *fingers crossed* getting results ugly before Gibson plays “Teesside managerial roulette” again and appoints Roy Chubby Brown as our next manager after he convinces him through a Powerpoint presentation that he can get us playing football just like Liverpool. It's also worth noting how much our home record has improved. Even under Warnock’s games last season we really struggled at home. Last season overall we won 6, drew 8 and lost 9. So far this season we've won 2, drew 2 and lost 0. We're undefeated in 7 league games now too. Lets try to enjoy it.
