Boro v Brentford (A) 1-1 (Traore)

Recommended Posts

You know what?

 

After seeing Brentford play yesterday... I think we will give them a lesson! They are without their best defender and tactical pinnacle and they WANT to attack, which will give us lots and lots of chances with a fit Adama, Bamford, Besic, Downing and Howson!

 

They will come out swinging, trying to get a first goal quick... But the way we can defend and start a counter.. will nullify all threats and give us some goals ..

 

Expecting a 4-1 win!

 

you know, seeing that game i could only think of how adama will be walking through them at will. hes going to destroy them. he's stronger than their cb's he might well score goal of the season for us. mazy run shrugging off the cb's beating about 6 of them. none of them putting a tackle in lol. easy peesy

 

reading through their forum, they are still totally blinkered about how good they are. moaning about everything like a spoilt kid not getting his own way. 

 

i was thinking we would struggle, but the more i think about it and after seeing them play. they really a team we can get at and hurt. i think we'll get 3+ goals.

A point wouldn’t be a disaster from this game but a win would really start to solidify our play off place. They are a team that knock the ball around quite well but have come unstuck this season by physically stronger teams and those who can play on the break, which is our forte.

 

Hopefully aitor can do us a favour against Sheffield United and a Derby Cardiff draw on Sunday would really make for a great weekend.

Would definitely take a draw in this game, but a win is definitely within our reach! Let's try and do what Cardiff did to them, comfortably win without much possession.

Ayala a major doubt hasn't trained all week

 

That seems to be common with Boro these days going into games.

If that's the case I'd be tempted to play Shotton CB and Cranie RB.

Not a bad shout but I’d have fry ahead of him, realistically craine won’t be here beyond the end of the season, shotton has made the rb slit his own and Fry has really only ever had one slip up in his time at the boro and deserves his chance.

Not ideal... was there an update on Besic? As he was touch and go for the last game.

I'd go with Fry too if Ayala is out. Think Shotton has mostly made that right-back spot his own and he's forming a bit of a partnership with Traore down the right.

I think if Ayala is a doubt we shouldn't play him, international break after this game, would be a blow for it to turn into something more serious if we play him. Fry has been called up to the England squad as well, he'll be raring to go.

I'd definately start Fry if Ayala isn't fit. He deserves his chances whenever Ayala or Gibson aren't fit. Needs gametime and has shown plenty of times that he is good enough for the Championship. Also knows what it's like to play next to Gibson.

Besic and Bamford have both trained and are fine

    • good win that. its great going onto the other teams messageboards and seeing the same comments after every game. here are the typical ones.  Boro are terrible, diabolical, very poor, awful team etc etc. often the same posters comments say we(not us) cant pass the ball, we keep hoofing it long, our midfield are awful. only 1 shot on target all game --------------------------------- for any oppo fans, yep other teams struggle against us because, we work harder, close down faster, tackle harder and we are more organised and actually have several really good players. just want to hope we dont start scoring more because we'll take some stopping.
    • We haven’t conceded a goal from open play yet in 8 games. Penalty and corners only.
    • BBC Tees said that the touted McNair swap was with Stoke for Sam Clucas. McNair has been brilliant so far this season so it seems like it was the right decision to keep him.
    • I'm delighted with the win. Warnock has worked absolute wonders with Fry, Dijksteel and McNair. This season I think we're going to be similar to our promotion winning team under Karanka, with the way that we'd do well against the better teams and struggle against the not as good teams. Finding a knack of winning them games like today is going to help us repeat them gritty wins against the lesser sides. Our style of football is going to be frustrating at times, sure, but I can easily accept it as we're going in the right direction after several years of drifting backwards in a seemingly unstoppable manner until Warnock came in. Considering the shambolic state that we were in last season, the incredibly tough opening fixture list and the disappointment in the transfer market, Warnock has done a fantastic job to turn us into such a highly effective team in such a short space of time. Some fans were similarly moaning about Karanka's style of play in our promotion season. However, he got us promoted in the end and even the most idealistic of us will have fantastic memories from his time here; certainly more good memories than the three and a half season since he left when we've had next to no good memories. If Gibson's track record is anything to go by then we're going downhill whenever Warnock leaves anyway so maybe we can stockpile the negativity to one side for then? We may as well try to enjoy these times of *fingers crossed* getting results ugly before Gibson plays “Teesside managerial roulette” again and appoints Roy Chubby Brown as our next manager after he convinces him through a Powerpoint presentation that he can get us playing football just like Liverpool. It's also worth noting how much our home record has improved. Even under Warnock’s games last season we really struggled at home. Last season overall we won 6, drew 8 and lost 9. So far this season we've won 2, drew 2 and lost 0. We're undefeated in 7 league games now too. Lets try to enjoy it.
    • plus Patrick Roberts basically in 1 on 1 and didn't hit the target.
