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!

We have to play the young lads from the start.

    • Hi all, just after a bit of help. I'm trying to reset my laptop. It is a fair few years old now and has been through the ringer, a fair few times it has hit the wall and I have managed to fix it by myself, but this one seems beyond my capabilities.  This issue has been going on a while but I'm only just getting round to it since I finally have some free time. When I turn my laptop on, It makes the noise as if it is loading, but I just get a black screen (it is still backlit but nothing ever appears). I have tried the Novo one button reset, which actually brought up a screen for the first time in lord knows how long.  However, no matter what option I choose, it then goes back to a black screen.    Anybody with any ideas at all on how to fix it or what's wrong? I was using it as a media server for Plex before it left so there were a lot of files on there that may have corrupted if that helps diagnose it at all?   Thanks in advance
    • Gazette seem to be suggesting club and JW want him to stay given his influence around the place. I should have added the above post was not my own prediction of who will stay or go but more what Gazette are seemingly suggesting. 
    • The police struggle with their duties during a short spike in crime on a regular day. That, along with the government's long desire to portray the changing face of crime and how we increasingly need to change to fight more digital crime, is going to be a factor in how many coppers we have on the streets to enforce these things. The government has now been forced to accept that enforcement may be needed to keep people indoors, which goes drastically against their ideal distribution of officers. Going significantly against their ideal setup is becoming quite a theme during this pandemic. As I said earlier, this doesn't mean higher levels of lockdown are on the way, what it may mean is that higher levels of enforcement will be dispatched in order to enforce the current lockdown procedures.
    • Why would we want Friend to stay, He was a brilliant player, now he cannot play three games on the spin. 
    • Just catching up on some Gazette articles and it seems picture with the out of contract players is become a bit clearer if Gazette are to be believed Set to stay: Howson & Friend Club want to stay: Ayala Set to leave: Shotton Clayton Johnson & Rudy I think Ayala staying really is 50/50 at moment.
