Boro vs Wolves 1-2 (Bamford)

Recommended Posts

We're not going to agree, but I will say you're still pushing towards £100 for a game of football even if you do that drive you mentioned. Petrol, Ticket and Food costs.

 

Car share or not, I can see exactly why there'd be so many fans not making the trip. Especially when it's on Sky as well.

Their away support is only marginally smaller than ours. We didn't sell out our recent away ticket allocation at Birmingham - there was several empty seats. Same situation; midweek game. So no, when the boot Ian on the other foot, our fans haven't performed any differently.

 

Sorry mate but it's not the same situation at all. A midweek game on a Tuesday is completely different to a game on a bank holiday weekend.

i dont think you've taken the relative position of each club in to account Snowblind. One's on the cusp of returning to the Premier League the other is greatlu failing to live up to expectation.

 

Not sure what relevance that has to it being on a work day? And it's not like they can claim the title at the Riverside.

 

The clamour for tickets when we were in the final straight a few years back was mad. We were regularly taking between 2-5k to away games.

Looking forward to this one. We’ve had a pretty easy run against some garbage teams so I’m interested to see how we fare against the best team in the league. If we manage to win it’ll give the team great confidence going into our run of tough fixtures against direct rivals, coming up to crunch time now!

Has this game been cancelled due to lack of interest I wonder?

 

Are we all expecting a bad result and dropping out of the top 6

 

Other fixtures with relevant importance being played tomorrow and all before we kick off apart from Derby

 

Millwall V Forest

Cardiff V Burton (not that it makes any impact on us apart from we play Burton next)

Barnsley V Bristol City (would love to see a home win here)

Sheffield Wed V PNE (again home win or draw would be good)

Brentford V Sheffield Utd ( home win preferable but a draw would be good as well)

Some tough games for our trailing rivals. Can see two of them dropping points.

I don’t fancy us Friday. I think it’s been mentioned but I think this break is going to do us more harm than good. A point would be a good one.

It could go either way. By all accounts a few of our players were carrying injuries, and against Brentford we looked like a team who needed a break, but on the other hand, it came right when we were picking up a bit of momentum. The first 10 minutes tomorrow is massive. If we start brightly and get the crowd on their feet, then we have a good chance of making them nervous. 

I don't think they'll have been too happy at the timing of the break either. They've won 2 on the bounce, but have lost their last two against top 6 opposition quite comprehensively.

Having said that, a point would be okay with two very winnable games following this one.

I think momentum counts for a lot in this league. We both have the quality to pick up where we left off but Wolves have a season of consistency in their back pocket to rely on in terms of confidence.. You’re right about the first 10 mins. Think it’ll dictate how the remainder of the game plays out with regards to confidence especially.

It's about time we performed well against a top table team, hopefully this is the one.

 

Friday nights are good for us.

 

C'mon Boro!

I think it’s been perfect for some to have a well earned rest to get over some minor injuries. Plus most of the team will have had a good amount of time with Pulis to have his tactics drilled into them.

 

Expecting a good performance under the lights and on TV.

 

A draw is a good result for both sides, so going for 2-2.

Can’t see us losing this at home at this stage of the season. Think we will win a season we probably need three points to stay in the play offs.

Still fancy a draw for this one, we've been scoring well at home but Wolves also have goals right across the forward line.

If we do manage to lead against Wolves, we need to stay on the front foot, trying to defend deep against this lot is asking for trouble.

    • This day 15th November 1994 - Boro's young guns go down to Ancona in this Anglo-Italian compatition Boro took the lead after 10 minutes then struggled to impose themselves on the game, the youth in the team v experience they were facing proved too much in the end, with Ancona levelling on the hour mark & scoring 2 late goals in the 80th & 90th to put the game beyond Boro 
    • Thing is, we almost certainly will offer him less money. And I don't think based on what he's said that he'd outright deny just less than what he's on. But tackling the wage bill would appear to need more movement than that and actually, a significantly less wage. I wouldn't expect him to stay on those terms. I'd say if the club really cares about wanting to keep him around, they need to approach it carefully, even if they are going to low-ball him to begin with, don't be a *** about it and expect him to say yes to anything because of a commitment to the club. Have a high boundary that you can't go beyond, work up to it and if his representatives think he should say no to our highest offer then we leave it at that and on good terms. No taking the ***, no expecting him to be accepting a pittance for his services on the back of the club as a whole's mistakes, something much bigger than Ayala's responsibility at this club. Most importantly for me, we have to accept the likelihood he leaves and hopefully wish him all the best if he does. I think he's been a great servant for us and I hope, unlike Derby, we treat him as professionally as he's treated being a player for this club.
