Boro v Leeds 3-0 (Bamford, Bamford, Bamford)

Recommended Posts

Safety issues:) let’s have a little faith in mankind and trust that they know how to walk and drive when it’s snowing. If you can go to work, school, supermarket, pub etc then surely you can go to a game of football. If you’re afraid of going outside then by all means stay at home.

 

I can understand calling a game off if it’s too much of a negative influence on the football itself. That said I’m not able to watch it myself because of other commitments so I can live with it being postponed :)

It's snowed really heavy overnight, if the game was tonight I think it would be in doubt.

I think the last one called off because of snow (can't remember which it was) was because the police considered it unsafe, not the club. So it could happen again.

Aye, even if the pitch is playable it could be deemed unsafe travel wise.

 

@Borodane may be correct in his assumption to the Danish, but Britain grinds to a halt the second there's even half an inch of snow ;)

Loads of schools are either closed or having a delayed start today. So don’t assume we can cope!

I feel like it was a Newcastle game. But I may have dreamt it.

Was that the Newcastle game where there wasn't a drop of snow on the ground at 3pm on the Saturday? The time when we just happened to have loads of injuries.

 

We beat them 1-0 when the games was replayed as well :)

Leadbitter is a doubt for Friday, with a hamstring complaint.

 

We are going to be running out of players at this rate.

That's great news.

As much as you don't want to see your players injured, Leadbitter has looked a bit knackered recently, so I'm inclined to agree that him being out of the team might not be the worst thing, if it means we get a chance to see Howson and Besic together. Hopefully it's not too long term though.

This is what I think Pulis will do if Adama and Leadbitter are both out:

 

-------------------- Randolph ------------------

-- Shotton --- Ayala -- Gibson --- Friend --

------------ Besic ---------- Howson ---------

-- Bamford ----- Downing ------ Harrison --

------------------Assombalonga-------------------

Fancy thinking one of our players being out injured is great news. I despair of our fans sometimes.

If you think, that a certain player is over the Hill, not bringing any good to the team... and a nother player has good skills, but aint selected... You can say good news in a tactical way... No one is actually happy, that our captain has pain or is injured... Get it?

    • Agree. He is still a bit green. But I think he's acquitted himself pretty decently, considering the circumstances. I also can't understand why Mejias wasn't the default replacement for Randolph. Guess Woody doesn't like him for some reason.  
    • In as much as he played one game against Man United in the League Cup, and in the subsequent defeat to Everton. Pears has already played more English league football than Meijas, and Meijas is 30. There's a reason we started playing an aging Greek journeyman over a keeper we'd signed from Real Madrid, and it wasn't because Dimi was an outstanding keeper.
    • You can't judge any player on 1 game. Pears actually made a good double save when Swansea were only ahead by the penalty. He's also made good saves in other recent games. Check the highlights of the Charlton & Burnley games. But he's young, inexperienced and will make more mistakes than you'd expect from older players. Also, in fairness, its not like he's getting a lot of help from our defence.  
    • Pears is not a bad keeper, he's just not ready for the Championship. Why on earth we're not playing Mejias instead I have no idea, the guy has PL experience FFS!
    • Which is why it is SO urgent that Gibson takes action, sooner rather than later. Bad morale is like a disease that eventually infects everyone. Even the keen youngsters like Spence, Walker etc. will see whats going on, not see any light at the end of the tunnel and start thinking they may be better off elsewhere.
