Boro V Burton Albion (A) 1-1 (Assombalonga)

Recommended Posts

Didn't realise there was a danger of it being called off.

 

We'll run riot today, 4-0. Bamford and a Traore hat-trick.

 

Now, where's me meds...

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.  ;)

 

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

 

fletcher?...would that be possible? can he be recalled?.... obviously not today.

This game is very, very important to us, lose or even draw this against the divisions bottom team, and the blow to our morale could be terminal for this season. Burton are where they are for a reason, mostly a defence who keep leaking goals, We need to score first and then keep the pressure on, which means the utter nonsense of playing three defensive midfielders has to cease. personally I would leave Clayton and Leadbitter on the bus, Besic as the defensive cover with Howson linking up with Baker. Downing contributes little from the flanks so bring Harrison in, if he is any good he has to be blooded at some time. Will any of this happen, will it hell, Pulis will stick with his old faithful and we might just scrape a narrow win. Are we improving as a team, I do not think so, we are still capable of beating the lower teams in what is a very poor division, but so lack pace on the left and guile through the middle that we are very limited.

Was Britt actually that bad against Wolves? I don't remember him doing much but then again who really did.

 

Was involved in the build up to the goal, but also had a few poor touches in the box...

If we go to Burton and spend 90 minutes sitting on the edge of our box, like recent away games Brum and Brentford, I'm going to be very disappointed.

 

I don't like the current 451, it's far too defensive. I'd like to see us go back to a 4231, or a variation of that, which includes Downing playing through the middle instead of on the left. I don't think you can have him and George on the same wing, it's like watching football in slow motion.

Should be good enough to win, not thrilled about Leadbitter starting and I'd rather see Downing moved inside and Harrison on the wing but should be 3 points today

shame that.... rather play Villa in the play-off and Fulham at Wembley than the other way round.

I hoped for more adventure

 

Same but at this point I'm just happy we only have two defensive mids... plus Cranie is better on the ball than Shotton.

    • 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.
