Boro vs. Ipswich (A) 2-2 (Downing, Bamford)

Recommended Posts

Considering how in and out of the team each of them were, for Britt to have 15 championship goals and for Bamford to have 11 is pretty good, IMO.

 

Just watched the highlights, everything ran through Waghorn for Ipswich, looked a tidy player in the highlights anyway!

 

Highlights suggest Besic had another good game too, which is excellent.

Flights booked for Saturday! Was gutted when it looked like it was going to be the Friday night, definitely owe Mr Bamford a pint

 

I'm booked on for Saturday too AB. Really looking forward to this one UTB

 

Pleased for you. Bamford clearly want you there. Hopefully we'll all get to go for a pint.

Just watched extended highlights of the game on MFC. Anyone else see Ayala after Bamford's equaliser? Looks like he was trying to say something to the linesman who flagged him offside minutes earlier haha

That will come as soon as OMG prepares the thread.

 

A lot of the reduced content in m/d threads is down to the ifollow as members now watch the game instead of picking up what is going on by following the posts.

 

However I do think that both semi final playoff games will be heavily poste especially the second game depending how we fare this Saturday

I'm working the first leg. Second leg I'll go to the pub to watch it - likely a*** a load of Villa fans...!

 

Was hoping to get a ticket for the Villa Park leg, but knew it wouldn't be possible with the 2000 allocation.

My main reason for not posting during the games is that I've had goals or incidents spoilt for me. Had it on a number of occasions where I've come on about to say something about something minor to see something like 'ffs 2-0' or 'BAMFOOOOOOOOOOORD!!!'

There always seem to be more comments/posts when the team has done badly. Not just on the forum but all channels. Happens with every team - football fans love a good moan!

 

Maybe its just me, but I don't feel that same kind of buzz as when we were last in the play-offs. Probably because last time it was after a 7 year wait and it really felt like AK had built something special after almost a decade of crap seasons. Felt like 'this is finally it, our big chance to get back'.

 

This time not so much as we have just been in the PL and at the beginning of the season 5th would have been seen as a slightly disappointing finish. So much of this season has just being a bit meh... barring the last four games where the excitement has come back.

 

Still can't wait for Saturday, only not quite the same 'make or break' feel that made the last play-offs so exciting imo.

    • This is what I would want to see. More of a 3-5-2 which has worked for us at times this season. I feel like we need Howson in midfield as our midfielders are just useless and lack any leadership, he can at least make a tackle. Saville to start if we want more balance or Tav if we wanna go for it. Roberts behind the striker and just let him run at them on the counter attack, maybe him and Britt could get something going. Let Spence and Coulson offer our pace and width as wingsback.                                          Stojanovic    Spence - Fry - Moukoudi - Friend/Shotton - Coulson                          Howson - McNair - Saville/Tav                                       Roberts                                               Britt/Fletch                             Not that it matters like, don't have much hope for this game.
    • Half-way through Mad Men and just started series 5 of The Bureau, both excellent. 
    • Warnock's had a good shuffle of the pack now. That's the desperate hope that his selections will finally click and maybe lady luck will smile on us too.

    • At this point I'd usually go check out how Millwall were doing and figure out how we could beat them. But whilst Stoke wasn't exactly a masterclass, the last two games in particular have left me bereft of confidence in this side. This squad isn't built out of League One quality players and yet the lack of quality coming from players at the moment makes it look like they are. Our passing and movement is so key to the way Warnock wants us to play but I just don't think anyone is really tackling this task together right now. We see some individual quality on display, particularly from Roberts and Britt at times in the last few games, but it's just not coming together as a unit. The final ball or decision is made too late, too strong or too weak. I agree with some others that I don't think that effort is necessarily the issue... it's just quality when and where it matters. We don't have a single player in the squad right now who's capable of planting a ball on a player's noggin on a consistent basis from a dead ball, never mind when in the flow of play. Still, the team? Hopefully Spence is back... this is what comes to mind. Stojanovic Spence Fry Friend Coulson Tav Howson Saville Roberts Fletcher Britt
