Anyone who thinks Pulis will drop Downing or Leadbitter will be sorely disappointed.

Best we can hope for is that he doesn't play Leadbitter and Clayton at the same time...

If we play Leadbitter and Clayton in the same defensive mould against Burton then something is seriously wrong.

One of Downings biggest fans but those were 2 very poor efforts on Friday. I expect to see him play on Monday though.

 

Biggest problem for me though was seeing Leadbitter and Clayton in the same midfield. If he plays them again together until the end of the season I will be seriously miffed. Think it will be a same again approach with just Howson in for one of Clatyon/Leads. 

 

Nothing other than a convincing win will be acceptable

Away end is sold out. I imagine you can probably buy home tickets on the door.

Not that thick anymore i spent 4 years in derby while at uni and I now live near Barnard Castle for work so my accent has is no where near as thick as it use to be. Although it doesn't matter I found out this morning they dont sell tickets on the door for championship matches to stop other teams fans getting in on the day (asked one of my mates whos a notts county fan).

Well game day and it seems as if there is little interest in such an important game.

Would like to see Boro's midfield play with more attacking movement today and not see Boro defenders making all the forward moves also would like to see 2 up front and that is anyone one but Britass.

Personally I would drop him into the reserves till the end of the season the guy is just a waste of space.

So thats 3 at the back with 2 wingbacks and 3 in midfield with the 2 up front. 

Thats never gonna happen is it far to many attacking tactics involved silly me for even thinking that way.  ;)

In the context of the remaining fixtures is it that important though? It’s only potentially important in terms of keeping it in our own hands - which will likely be the case for each of the remaining games.

 

In a few weeks we’ve got shef utd, Bristol, Derby, Millwall, I’d imagine that anyone of those are going to be more important. Unless we lose both this and forest 8-0, then maybe some of those won’t be important or maybe they’ll be more important. I’m not sure how you quantify this tbh. :)

 

It’s all relative anyway.........

I think that could be because of the wolves game tbh been so terrible against 9 men kind of puts a downer on promotion hopes. Having said that i think we will win today we do well against teams in the bottom half particularly if we score first, I think Pulis will play Leadbitter, Besic and Howson to go for it against this sort of team.

So you want Britt dropped to the reserves but 2 upfront? Who's gonna partner Bamford then Dael Fry?

Britt is our only other fit striker my man, if you want 2 up top you'll have to deal with Britt for now.

Schmeichel saved 3 pennas, but Eriksen, Schöne  and other missed .. against Croatia in a game we could have won in regular time ..  I hope for a good game tomorrow and that Randolph have a good game .. only letting in the winner from .. hmm . Maybe braithwaite? 😄
    • Almost forgot - This day back in 1973, my favourite season following the Boro 17th November 1973 Boro 3 Cardiff 0 Thiscwas our 9th home game, we had lost the 1st fixture 2-0 & conceded 5 goals at home, now we are starting to find our feet, clicking as a team & motoring through this league & the return of Graeme Souness after a 2 match suspension, with deputising Bill Gates, his only start that season standing down With goals from David Mills, surprisingly his 1st home goal of the season, 2nd in total, John Craggs with his 2nd goal also & Malcolm Smith with his 3rd goal of the campaigne, keeping the Boro in the driving seat at the top of the table Big Jacks team Jim Platt  John Craggs  Frank Spraggon  Graeme Souness  Stuey Boam  Willie Maddren  Bobby Murdoch  David Mills  John Hickton  Alan Foggon  Davey Armstrong  Sub  Malcolm Smith - Coming off the bench to score our 3rd  
    • Don’t blame you MM. we all signed up to the same situation. Keep an eye on the predictions league and you will be fine
    • Trouble is last season it was just a question of me posting PMs on Friday nights and getting peoples attention which is why we had good turn outs . This season however because of the new set up I cannot PM most people and I also cannot get in touch with most people on the @ connection as well. Very irritating to write a PM and then have the message come up that they are not excepting messages. Made the replays in the last round of the cup a farce with 2 moderators unable to receive messages. So now I have given up trying to do it at all.
    • And there was me thinking I will give everyone a better chance by opening it up and making it "THE" first goalscorer not just from one team. 😄
