Boro v Sheffield United 3-0 (Braithwaite,Flint,Downing)

Recommended Posts

So I've heard this fella is coming to town...

A man named Tony Pulis has been seen wandering the town hoping to leech onto a football club and suck the very life out of them.

We've had eyewitness accounts from the locals and even managed to grab one for a comment.

Half the town has been converted, the other half are getting behind our hunting hero in the hope this virus can be destroyed.

Pulis is ready for battle though, in fact he's already celebrating victory and preparing for retirement on the south coast.

Questions:

Do you expect any new signings in the squad for the game?

What's your expected line-up and who would you pick?

What's the score going to be?

Do you like Chris Wilder?

Do you think Chris Wilder would make a better Blade than Wesley Snipes?

Should I make my next match thread about dinosaurs?

Great thread Wilson, that really gave me a laugh, very clever.

No new signings

Leadbitter, Downing, Shotton and eight others

0 - 0 if I keep saying that I reckon I will be right a lot of the time

Actually yes I do like Chris Wilder, I think I would have enjoyed playing for him

Definitely

Bring on the dinasaurs

Possibly Waghorn may start

 

My team at the moment would be

 

Randolph

Shotton

Flint

Fry

Friend

Wing

Howson

Tavernier

Fletcher

Assombalonga

Braithwaite

 

I reckon we will win 2-1.

 

Quite like Chris Wilder - seems an honest fella.

 

Don’t like dinosaurs so no thanks.

 

Great introduction BTW

Very good, wilson.

 

Leadbitter will surely not start this match. Wing in from the off, for me.

Nice thread mate but apparently we're doomed.

 

Hopefully Pulis saw enough yesterday to recognise that the team needs a bit more than that starting XI can give us.

Aye, hopefully. I think he might stick with mostly the same team for this game at least. But here's hoping that at the very least McNair is back from his knock so we have a bit more positivity in midfield. Him in for Leadbitter theoretically should make a big difference in the state of our midfield 3.

SCORE: 1-1 (Fletcher equaliser for Boro)

 

Chris Wilder - I like him. Open, honest guy with no pretense who's done a Sterling job at Bramall Lane. Not sure he'd be a better Blade than Wesley though...

 

Dinosaurs? Absaurlutely.

Good job Wilson. Had a few laughs with the gifs. I can't see any new signings for this one. Maybe someone in the stands though.

 

I think we will win this one, but it will be a tight workmanlike win. I really think that Pulis has seen the light regarding the youngsters, and I'd imagine that at least one of the senior players will be dropped. It also create some positive atmosphere in the stands which we definately need.

 

Randolph

Shotton-Fry-Flint-Friend

Clayton-Howson-Downing

Braithwaite-Tav

Britt

 

Sort of a mixture between what I want and expect. I don't think we will see McNair start after being injured on saturday. I'd like to see Downing and Leadbitter dropped for the kid, but I can't see Pulis dropping both of them.

 

What I'd really like to see is a positive front four of:

 

Chapman-Braithwaite-Tav

-----------------Britt--------------

 

Imagine seeing two academy players starting on either wing. That should certainly put some smiles on in the stands and it would be easier to forgive a poor or disjointed display.

 

Reckon it will be 2-0 win but SHeffield will make us work hard.

Enjoyed that Wilson, hopefully you're on the next Match Day Thread as well. Partly because Boro will have won and partly because I want to see a thread about Dinosaurs :)

 

2-1 win to the Boro!

Almost forgot about this game.. such a weird time to have it. Honestly haven’t got a clue how it’s going to play out either, but if I see a midfield including both Leadbitter, Downing and Clayton I’ll be miffed!

I’ve also changed my season ticket for the first time in years from the North stand and joined the posh ones in the West, so I’m quite excited to view the game from the opposite angle!

Anybody and idea why we are playing this fixture so close to Saturdays match, the rest aren't, or is it me just not in the swing of things yet.

We have to play the young lads from the start.

    • I would go with following Pears Shotton Harold Friend Howson Paddy Wing Tav Coulson Britt Fletch Not against Spence but we need to get back to being strong and that back 3 has good experience and 2 out the 3 are naturally centre backs. So hopefully that offers the solidity we need Harsh on Sav but i think we need Tav in team as he carries the ball well from CM towards the strikers. And the link between midfield n forwards of late has been non existent. I deliberated whether to play Ravel or Britt with Fletch. Gone with Britt in hope of extra firepower. I am hoping Tavs inclusion means creativity of Ravel is less needed. Nmecha n Rudy not done much of late. I accept neither has Britt but hoping thats down to him feeling his way back after injury. For all his faults his record in this league is good and i hope he can find the form he showed towards in last 6 games of last season where he went on a run.
    • I’m going to work it out tomorrow! It’s not dead.. 
    • More than anything I hope we win. Not sure of what team he is going to put out or what formation he is going to play and I suppose it doesn't really matter if we get 3 points. It has been a complete waste of a season for me. I can normally see the positives in most things, even Pulis, but we just seem to be drifting into ever increasing mediocrity. 
    • Playoffs here we come 😜
    • 3 points    1-3 to The Boro!
