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

Recommended Posts

I fancy us to nick this 2-1, Derby aren't playing well despite 2 recent wins, Howson 20 yarder Saturday.

 

Overall, neither are we. We've only had one away win since the start of February, I believe. I'm not convinced we'll get beat, but I don't think we'll get a win here. But that's the barrier we've got to overcome to even get into the play-offs, never mind compete in them. We have to be able to get results in these tough situations now. Fingers crossed!

 

Yup. The problem for me with last night's result is that we may have to play Fulham for promotion. Unless there is a huge turnaround promotion looks unlikely. Let's hope for an imposing display against Derby

Big game today. I'm so nervous for the lads. If we win this, I think we'll make the playoffs.

Bloody hell, haven't seen your posts in a while. It's just like the good old days. The band is getting back together. Bring on the summer transfer window. :D

Always like playing derby. We usually seem to get a result against them (going by memory only).

 

Same team as last time, with britt for bam if he's not cleared by the docs. Will be a shame if he does have to sit out as he likes playing against the rams.

 

2-1 Boro. Ayala and britt to score

My prevailing memory of playing Derby at Pride Park was when Kris Commons scored a brace to help them overturn a 1-0 lead for us. Though it is the only time I've been to Pride Park specifically to see us play.

Was there when we were 3 up and Derby scored 3 in the second half what a game that was.

 

Massive importance to both teams, playing Boro surely will be the warm up for the Cardiff game in the minds of fans and players of DC or buffer result if they lose to Cardiff so this has to be a "must win" game for Derby.

 

Absolutely essential that we score first especially away because away form of late has not been that great and I am a poet and everyone should know it!

 

Hoping to be at PP by 1300hrs on a warm and sunny day

Good to see you too mate.

 

Got a new job and just needed time to let things settle.  Starting to enjoy the season again though. :D

Massive game today, despite yesterdays result i am treating this as a must win because why should we wait till the last game of the season to secure a playoff place when we are going to be nervous and looking at other results if it comes to that. Win today, get a draw or beat millwall then lets relax on the last day playing some decent football against a unmotivated Ipswich side.

Certainly a good few of us on the trains to Derby today. Should be a cracking atmosphere as long as everyone can still sing after all the beer.

    • I think he will put the kids back in. I don’t think the crowd will get on their backs as much as if he went for experience and they played like that have been doing. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Clayton back in to steady the midfield and Fletcher up front on his own. 
    • Great thread Uwe...think you've summed up the situation very well. 👍   Can Boro get anything from the game? Umm...severe rectal soreness?   Strongest Team/Formation? I see you threw a trick question in there...nice try!   Will Woody still be here after the International break? Sadly, probably yes. Unless Gibson is actually at the Riverside and hasn't been struck down with blindness.   Why do you hate Leeds? 'Cos they're DIRTY!  Plus Bielsa's a sneaky spying git. That said, I imagine he won't bother for us, after seeing what we were like at Elland Road.   Why aren’t people that order steak ‘Well Done’ sent straight to prison? I have no idea. People who eat steak should be sent to prison..period. Y'know, since meat causes climate change and all that.   
    • I wouldn't even say the crowd has turned too much, even during the Luton game it was just low and quiet, it wasn't quite a vile or horrible atmosphere for the players. Barring the displays for Grant and Ali, the biggest input from the stands was the ovation Spence got walking round the stands after he was subbed. I suspect tomorrow will be different if the lads put on the same gutless display. The fans won't accept that against Leeds and Woodgate will feel the full brunt of it if Leeds thrash us because we're not up for the fight. His team selection after bigging up the experienced lads who've failed to give him anything (and either blaming himself for picking them or just the young players in general on the current position in the table) will be gone over with a chainsaw. If he goes for a similar team again and it fails, I sincerely think it may be the last straw for many and I've no doubt I'll have a few words to say myself. EDIT: I should say there was relatively significant booing at half time and full time, of course. Just generally during the game, things could be worse.
    • I tend to go to Indian, Thai, Chinese or Middle Eastern places, I’m not really part of the Beefeater set. I really don’t know many people who eat red meat these days. 
    • Agree with most of what you state apart from Woody not being backed, he was but sat his choices on the bench and sent others on loan. The second I disagree with being the fans. I did not approve of his appointment but like others give Woody much more time than ANY other manger has been given. I do not feel sorry for Woody because he promoted his product and when failing started to blame the players and it’s not something Northeners do, no we admit to our failings gain support and move on. Woody was never man enough to accept he was not capable, talked himself up and took the financial rewards. Listen I’m not saying there was not good intent and I’m not saying people can’t learn, but what I’m stating is first you need to learn and admit mistakes. I don’t see any of the signs other than he is still trying to big it up.
