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.

    • Yep agreed. I mean, it's obviously not ideal to have about 50k a week not contributing in Gestede and Shotton but considering the enormous turmoil we've experienced in recent years it could be much worse. If we can't extend with Britt we need to sell him in the summer and I can see us having to accept a deal less than 5 mil. As you say Stoke look in horrible shape, and they will be lucky that they still have year with parachute money next season but they will drastically have to cut back and get rid of some serious deadwood.
    • 3 star manager? 🤷‍♂️🙃😂
    • Whatever you think of our deadwood it could have been worse I mean look at Stoke they have 30+ million pounds of players out on loan and no sign of people actually paying permanent fees for them. We could be in a worse position when you think of the Vokes type we were linked with wanting under Pulis he looks shot, even looking back to the PL summer our no.1 midfield target before De Roon was Lukas Rupp for 8 million he joined Norwich this month for 500k! Only player I'm left worrying about us shifting from the books is Britt unless he hits a hot streak before the summer shifting him for what we'd consider a reasonable price in the summer seems like a very difficult protracted effort but he has to go.
    • Because no one else wants Deadwood either. We're stuck until their contracts expire.
    • Klopp is a *** and always has been.
