Boro vs. Derby County (A) 2-1 (Besic, Assombalonga)

Recommended Posts

Excellent result, Derby's *** has gone for the umpteenth time, quite amusing how they do this every year, don't think they'll get another point, a good result for us against Millwall and Ipswich is just a nice day out and a chance to rest a few players for the play offs.

Job well done. A point next week may well be enough to see us in the top 6 for certain.

 

Edit - A point next week takes Sheff Utd, Bristol City, Millwall and Preston out of it as far as we are concerned. We'd be left to worry about Derby and Brentford only.

Sunderland aren't down yet are they? Bolton needed a point to make sure of that. They're only as down now as they have been for weeks.

Yeah they are as Bolton have to play Burton I think.

Sunderland have been relegated from the Sky Bet Championship after that late defeat to Burton. They trail Bolton and safety by six points with two games to play. But Burton play Bolton next week, meaning one of those sides will have 41 points and it means the Black Cats won't be able to climb above both and out of trouble.

Could be fun if both us and Sunderland got out of this league :D

I just feel the confidence gained over the last two games is crucial.

Actually beating two top half teams is a massive plus for me.

Looking like it could be Villa though

I don't think it matters too much in the play offs.  Yeah over the course of the season the teams ahead of us have clearly been better than us hence the gap in points but we'll be looking at a straight shoot out over two games.  Assuming we make it then we won't be favourites but I see no reason not to be positive about our chances whoever we get.

    • There’s only one. The other is the pesky foreigners looking to meet up with the locals for a beer 🍺 in the six medals. Do you fancy joining us from 17.30 @sanddancer ?
    • Theres a first time for everything 😉
    • Why is there two threads BORO v Leeds? 
    • There are 8 Managers in the Championship the same age or even younger than Woodgate (40 years old), thats a third of the Division he is operating in. To me a young Manager is a 23 year old fresh out of Uni. Football is different to Industry, at 40 years old you are a grown man with a few miles on the clock unlike a University graduate and shouldn't be prone to being naive through a lack of experience. By all means there is a lot to learn in any new role but you have been learning (or should have) in the Industry you are managing in by being exposed to different Managers and different tactics for probably the best part of twenty or more years. Alex Neil and Lee Johnson are both two years younger than Woodgate at 38. If you are entering a management role with a handicap which affects the business then perhaps Horse Racing or Golf is a better profession to take up. Not everyone can be a Manager, it takes a lot more than just being a good worker in an Industry to have the skills, Bobby Charlton is probably the best example. Being very good at a particular job be it a shop floor operative or a footballer doesn't necessarily equip you to be a Manager. To me there is a very basic problem in that I don't see the traits or characteristics that would remotely consider me to think Woodgate would be a successful manager. Of the four Clubs beneath us in the Championship only Cowley is the same age as Woodgate, the others are all older.
    • I only hope the media are reporting on a brilliant BORO performance after taking 3 points at home and NOT crowd trouble.  Regardless of performance I don’t think the crowd will not turn on Woody simply because they hate Leeds more, I think there will be some solidarity and a lot of passion.  I am not going for a win but I have a gut feeling a draw is quite likely. I’m expecting a decent performance and if we kick off well, the crowd will get behind the players and carry us home.
