Boro vs. Brighton (FA Cup) 0-1

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the Ramirez insight. I knew about the Bton bit (was there - TBH I was unaware of it at the time, and seeing it after, couldn't see a problem with Ramirez!)

 

Yeah Stephens did take a chunk out of Ramirez's leg to be fair!

Ramirez also made that very clear to the ref, pointong to his leg and even hit the yellow card out of the refs hand ;)

Hope it’s a good match today and that we are up for the cup. Come on Boro.

 

I’m really counting on the team to be up for it from kickoff. Our slow starts should be one of the things that Pulis should have as priority.

Is CH in danger of losing his job if we were to beat Brighton?

 

I wouldn't say so he's done a great job with them and there's only 3 points between 10th and 17th at the minute it's probably the tightest it's been at the bottom of the prem for a while.

 

The gap between the top 6 or 7 and rest of the league just seems to get bigger and bigger each season but you never know football's a funny game, don't know too much about Brightons ownership and their record with managers.

Don’t think so. They probably can’t attract anyone much better without taking a huge gamble and top championship ship clubs knock out lower Prem opposition plenty of times. It’s not a big upset.

If Hughton keeps them in the PL he's done an excellent job, I didn't expect anything else but a struggle, its much the same as us last season.

With all the speculation about Braithwaite although not very concrete I’m waiting to see the lineup today with anticipation. Wouldn’t mind resting Downing and starting Braithwaite in the middle.

Yay Clayton!

 

Oh, Fletcher.

 

Yay Bamford!

 

Fletchers time to shine, fingers crossed.

Interesting to see how the team does without Downing in it. Hopefully will be able to listen to it, out at Moorland Hall where there is barely any signal and WiFi is scarce at Global Game Jam.

Delighted with that lineup. Happy to see Clayton back and will be interesting to see Braithwaite link up with Bamford and Traore. Big chance for Fletcher today.

    • You'd be picking fights too with the likes of Woodgate and Downing causing discord in the dressing room.
    • We’ve got the following problems -  1 - a manager with no long term attachment to the club. He will try to do his best but ultimately it’s not the same knowing he won’t be here next season.    2 - a squad of players who are coming to the end of their time with boro. Some are on loan and some are moving on. Reality being that they don’t care about the shirt and will leave boro when we go down anyway. Can a manager who isn’t attached to the club long term motivate players who are about to leave? The last two games would suspect not.    3 - our style of play has again changed with a new manager. Evidence would suggest that it isn’t suited to our players. (We can’t cross or score from set pieces).     4 - coming out of COVID is always going to be tricky, but we are going down without a whimper. It literally feels like De Ja Vu form the prem season when we played Swansea today. Just waiting for that moment to come where the players are revved up and raring to go. Alas, it didn’t come.    5- the final problem we have is that teams around us are picking up points. They look like they want it more and it just pains me to see us shaft it each time we play a game. 
    • I was going to suggest Vatican City FC, but seems that they only have a national team and the head honcho supports Argentina....not that its helping them much either
    • I put this question in the match day thread but, serious question, is there any other club in the land that gives their chairman godlike status and forgives him for every mistake he makes regardless of how disastrous it has been for their club?
