Recommended Posts

Lose tonight and it will quite possibly be the last time we see Adama in a Boro shirt

 

Lose tonight and it definitely will be, win and we'll likely get one more game - just can't see him staying next year sadly... big loss to us

Good Luck for tonight, really hope you make history and overturn the deficit. For the decent people I've encountered on this forum, hope you get to go up - providing the last game next season isn't Boro away, for the third time in 5 seasons!

You only get one go so

Randolph

Shotton fry Gibson

Fabio Downing

Besic Traore

Howson

Bamford Assombalonga.

Yes I have no management experience and no Tony isn't going to change a thing at this stage, but thats my team that could either get us the goals or we lose. A 3 - 4 - 3 in attack and 4 - 4 -2 in defence - but just me being a fifa manager ;-)

I think it will be unchanged with the exception of Fabio coming in at rb.

I just cant see Pulis doing this. He is too conservative.

 

We need an early goal and then it changes the atmosphere. Watching Derby last night, as soon as they conceded, their entire game plan went out the window....and Fulham were phenomenal

Yep and Gibson

 

It'll be depressing if we concede an early goal, as I really can't see us scoring three against Villa. (Still... I guess you never know).

 

It'd be a bit like the play-off final against Norwich, when we went 2-0 down early on, and NEVER looked like getting back in to it.

 

COME ON BORO !!!

First to score will go through most likely. Have a bit of a sick feeling that we will concede early tonight. Fine margins but I think toe to toe Villa are the better side and will edge it if they can execute their game plan. Football is so often a game of weak links, and we simply have more of those than Villa, especially in the wide areas.

 

However, if the favourites always won then football would be boring.. but they don't, and it isn't. Fingers crossed it is one of those nights were a slice of luck comes our way. A Villa red card.. or a penalty.. maybe a 30 yard screamer.. score early and the whole atmosphere changes.

Yeah agree with that, if I had to put my house on it I'd probably go for something like 2-0 to Villa or maybe 2-1 with us getting a late consolation.

 

Like u say though the favourites don't always win and Villa have had a few blips this season.

I mean apart from digger who has a deity as their source, I wouldn't take anyone's word for it on a forum until the team sheet is released.

    • Same team, we've got to hope that they've practiced defending balls in to the box, and hope Assombalonga plays as well as he did against QPR. Wing has been poor all season, but Saville is his only real competitor and has been even worse.
    • That's a joke, right? Like, the joke being that someone had to submit an application form at all, not that it wasn't done. Jen was at the meeting, what more intent or knowledge could you gain from an application form? So some jobsworth at the club can look us over and decide if we're worthy?
    • They make it up as they go along, mate.
    • Ok thanks for that I didn’t know it was practically a done deal 👍
    • It's mostly already decided unless Wales lose to Hungary. "If Wales beat Hungary, Ireland will travel Slovakia for a semi-final, leaving Northern Ireland to go to Bosnia. If Wales draw with Hungary and Slovakia beat Azerbaijan, then Ireland will have to go to Cardiff to takes on Wales, while Bosnia will still host Northern Ireland." If Wales lose to Hungary, then one of Wales, Northern Ireland or Slovakia move to the Group A play-off draw. I presume the other play-offs are done differently if there is a draw.   I read that if Scotland win their play-offs, they're in England's group at the Euros, which would be interesting to say the least.
