Boro v Hull City 3-1 (Gestede (2) Bamford)

Recommended Posts

YIPPEE!

 

Not quite a storming win but a win nonetheless.  Not a game we could really afford to drop points in so thankfully job done  :relief: :fist:

3 observations tonight:

 

1. Don't think we played great but nice to see a comfortable win.

 

2. I think we look a long way from being a potential promotion team.

 

3. Bamford is the best striker we've got at the club, he looks useless on the left but then looks like the coolest man on the pitch when he's in front of goal.

1 - Indeed although it might have been different had we been playing against anyone even semi-decent.

 

2 - Indeed.

 

3 - Indeed.

Relief, embarrassment averted. May well sneak into the playoffs and spring a surprise promotion. OK, that was over optimistic, but maybe just maybe..

With the incredibly low standard of the league this year it really wouldn't surprise me if we make the playoffs.

With a bit of luck we could somehow find ourselves in the playoffs saturday evening (providing we can actually beat sunderland). Tricky upcoming games for Bristol and Sheffield have two awaygames on the spin.

What does concern me is the win one and lose one sequence, had a look at previous results and was shocked to see that we have only drawn once in 23 games, if only we could have had a few draws in a***st those defeats!

 

Also now is not the time to start drawing games the winning sequence simply has to continue though kinda mindful that we could get a draw on Saturday

Think Besic looked really good game last night, proper dynamic midfield performance. Think Leadbitter was a bit anonymous, would like to see a midfield 2 of Besic and Howson going forward.

Yeah same think Besic can do the Leadbitter role, which may free up Howson to get forward. Would like to see Besic/Howson from here on out.

Should find out today or tomorrow if Gestede has any lasting damage to his ankle or if it was just a knock he could hardly walk off at the end of the match

I'd say the justification of the decisions he made were in the end result. It's no different between the games we've drew or lost, he takes responsibility. I don't agree with the changes we made, both before(Howson) and during the game. But he got the points quite comfortably so he certainly didn't get it wrong.

    • I honestly can't see passed a 1-1 or 0-0 draw and I don't know whether that would be a good result or not. I reckon if we can get 4 points from Bristol City and Reading we will have cracked it. I once saw Ronan Keating in a Starbucks queue at Manchester Airport and as your all dying to know what he had he went for a Latte 
    • I can't help thinking that Warnock is being lined up as a DoF for next season, the way he talks about how the club needs to change with how they recruit and who they recruit seems to me that he may be here but more behind the scenes.
    • Only 2 home games left and we've not won at home in 7 months. I feel like we're bound to win one of them.
    • Brizzle have similar issues to us in a sense that they seem to shoot from distance or want to walk the ball into the goal. They are definitely there to be got at and have shown really poor form since their return from lockdown.  However we have the worst home record in the league so I’d happily take a point from this game    Met Keith O’ Neil on stag do in Leeds. However as I was a bit pie eyed and his hair has gone completely grey I accidentally directed a question to his brother rather than him (after about 10 mins of chatting🤦‍♂️)  But it was all taking in good humour 
    • The game against Millwall was the first chance I have had to see us play this season and I was quite impressed. Especially after what I have been reading all season. I predicted a 1-1 Draw against Millwall. So I will go for the same. TBH I will happy with anything other than a defeat.   I met Dave Lee Travis when he was a radio one DJ. (Only oldies will remember him) in the NAFFI at Church Fenton. Decent bloke. But didn't buy a round. 😁
