Same old same old, just a total kack of adventure, what does he see in Leadbitter, it is like having to play with ten men. I think Shotton needs to be benched, his positional play lately leaves a lot to be desired. We should have enough to win as I cannot see their defence stopping Bamford and Traore for ninety minutes.

It's the same set up that had us win 3 games with 3 goals scored in each before the international break.

Well the problem i saw last game was that Leadbitter and Clayton were doing the same job at least one of them has been removed for the slightly more attacking Howson. 

 

Is Downing becoming like a mini version of Chelsea's John Terry (before he left i mean) too big to drop?

Not at all... the reason Downing is not dropped is because he’s one of our better players. (Regardless of what’s said on here)

Id describe downing as solid which is fine, but i do think we could give someone else a go on that wing whos better going forward tbh ive always said Fabio might actually make a good winger or harrison is sat on the bench.

Happy enough with the team. Prefer Clayton to Leadbitter but at least Howson is back in the side. As must win as they come in the run-in.

What exactly do you mean by a lack of adventure?

 

This team is more than capable of winning this game. Remember Burton are fighting for their lives. I think going all out attack in the midfield would be too dangerous, we're not cohesive enough to do it so we need to take our time and forge opportunities when they leave gaps and exploit Traore's pace to the full, exactly what had got us into the play-off positions again to begin with.

A clear 3 goal win will see us move into 5th spot, goals as they go in will be shown on Sky Sports

The formation is more of a 4-1-4-1 the 4 behind Bamford will all push forward and Leadbitter will sit and play the holding role.

I'd rather Clayton instead of Leadbitter but I'm happy enough with the team, the shape and the direction were heading in.

Clayton did nothing against Wolves to keep his place in todays team. No qualms with that change. Shotton has travelled so i dont think hes injured.

    • If you get it right in League One by creating a winning mentality and smashing the league it creates a certain environment and positive feeling around the club. Look at modern day Leicester, Norwich, Bournemouth and how the foundations built in League One propelled them up the leagues. Personally based on the current structure of the club and the decisions of the last 5 years relegation for us would be an absolute disaster as the gap between Championship and Premier League grows. You get it wrong and you end up like Sunderland, Blackpool, Ipswich or a Portsmouth destined to remain a lower league club without significant investment
    • Middlesbrough vs QPR (H) The year is 2012, the headlines read:   "Queens Park Rangers have sacked manager Neil Warnock after a run of eight Premier League games without a win. The 63-year-old took charge at Loftus Road in March 2010 and led Rangers to promotion last season, but leaves with them lying 17th in the top flight."   Neil is left to stew in a fit of rage: after catapulting QPR into the Premier League, he's been sacked halfway through the next season before he could even get over his new years hangover! He begins plotting his elaborate revenge, after 8 years and 6 (largely irrelevant) jobs later he finally has the chance to prove himself by keeping a relegation threatened team in the league, whilst doing it against the team that didn't believe he had that survival instinct in him. This is the story of Neil Warnock's redemption!   Matchday Information Sunday 2pm brings us a do or die clash as Warnock’s Boro failed to keep some momentum going against fellow basement dwellers Hull, the hiring of Warnock has failed to arrest the slump in matchday ticket sales as the attendance is staying steady around the 0 mark. We have home advantage for this, if that still makes a difference… After being excited about football starting again, I am now equally excited for football to be finished again. With QPR having nothing to play for - losing all 3 of their fixtures since the return - can we take advantage of their bad form and seemingly indifferent performances? The good news is that at this end of the table one positive result will give us a massive amount of breathing room.   The Reverse Fixture Earlier on in the season – We played to a 2-2 draw in a period of 10 games without a win. We’ll all be hoping that the Hull game isn't the start of a similar run of results. There’s only so many teams left who can let us off the hook by going into administration.   Injuries Both sides have a clean bill of health for this one.   View from the Opposition https://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/queensparkrangers/forum/260261/middlesbrough-sunday/#27   Questions Score predictions for this one? Lineups for the game? Will Warnock keep us safe? Will he be here next year if he does? Do we even deserve to stay up if we rely on other teams being handed points deductions? Do you prefer to have your Saturday ruined or your Sunday ruined?
    • Totally agree, we simply stopped after the equaliser and somehow the players did not see what we were in that Hull were there for the taking.
    • That is a very valid point about crowds and probably overlooked by many of us, I beileve that we simply can not afford to go down plain and simple
    • It's one of the biggest challenges he's faced, for sure. From the post match interview, I think he was as baffled and p**** off about the total absence of quality as we all were.
