Boro vs. Brighton (FA Cup) 0-1


Recommended Posts

i don't think we will do wholesale changes and might end up playing the same 11 that played against QPR but if we do changes with having Tuesday night in mind this is what i believe we could see.

Traore--------Baker---------Johnson

Has Baker even been on the bench recently? I would be shocked to see a player jump from not in the squad to starting. The rest looks more likely.

I guess it all depends on what Pulis has in mind. Does he want to keep the momentum going from QPR? Or rest players for Sheffield Wed?

I'd only put baker in if we are planning on keeping him and i'd rather throw him in to an FA cup game than a League game

There is absolutely no way Johnson deserves a start. If Pulis wants to try someone he hasn’t seen much of then just start fletcher.

Would you put a full strength squad out for this FA Cup spinoff? It depends what you mean by full strength; what Pulis thinks is full strength, what you think is full strength or what I think is full strength... I suspect we would all differ slightly. The team that started last week is almost fine by me, although I would play Bamford as striker, Gestede behind him, and Downing on the left, dropping Assombalonga.

 

Will Adama Traore ever score again? I hope so.

 

First goalscorer and score predictions? Well they are rubbish away from home, in the Premier League and we are unbeaten at home in the FA Cup under TP, so I think we will win 2-1, with goals from Bamford (2) and Hemed for them as he hardly ever scores.

Fletcher is likely to be leaving on loan do you really risk him at the possibility of him getting injured?

I've only put Johnson in if Pulis wants to rest players likes of downing and with Johnson going nowhere til the summer we may as well use him, see if he can give us some sort of balance that Pulis is after.

I'm sure, during one of the media conferences, I once saw Tony Pulis say "it depends if he wants to put it in" when talking about Lewis Baker and he hasn't been on the bench since. He seems to be another Fletcher, hasn't got the right attitude.

Indeed, never heard a bad word said about Fletcher's attitude. He's just not that good of a footballer right now.

We may not come up against Glenn Murray on saturday as him and his wife has been arrested in connection with an alledged tax fraud of 1.1 million.

 

Just means we'll probably face their new striker Locadia

 

I'd imagine it'll be Hemed/Baldock up front, enough to weaken the resolve of any team...! The Murray situation is a pain in the proverbial, and beautifully timed!

Apparently Ramirez is behind it!

    • If Smith signs i would imagine he would certainly be arriving as back up and not main striker. Secondly 10 goals and 3 assists for the team that finished 2nd bottom in league imo is not the worst record. Yes he wont get pulses raising but Kieffer Moore hit 10 goals for struggling Wigan last season and in a better team his return was better and we (whether people like NW or not) are better than Rotherham. I am not for one second suggesting Smith will score 20 goals for us like Moore has for Cardiff but he would not be worst back up target man if that is what he arrives as given his numbers last season.
    • 224 but ran out of time 🤦‍♂️ It felt like I spent 5 mins just trying to remember Mark Summerbell's name, which wouldn't be so bad but he wasn't the person I was even trying to remember.  I was actually thinking about Steve Baker and the League Cup semi final against Liverpool when he did that man-marking job on Steve McManaman.  I think Summerbell was the lad who was going out with one of Robson's daughters while he was playing for us?  Quite a few I didn't get from the last 5 years or so really.  Didn't even get a couple from the current squad 🤭
    • Doesn't even hold him in high enough regard to tell him the truth about his future when he signs a contract waiver, according to Downing. I imagine that feeling is, or at least was, more than mutual.
    • Maybe we can now put that statue up of Downing which Pulis thought he deserved. Albeit I don't think Steve quite holds Downing in such high regards as he used to
    • "Rotherham United's Michael Smith is someone who is thought to have impressed Warnock and ticks several of the boxes of what the boss is looking for up-top." Worried next season will be an even tougher watch, can't say I've seen much of him like but average record and presumably a donkey type?
