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.

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 remember sitting in a pub in the Algarve that had a load of different games in TV for that 8-1 game. Was with my dad and brother, next to a bunch of united fans (were playing Wigan who were just above us going into that final weekend). Drunkenly said to one of them that I'll get a round of shots in for every goal they put past Wigan, and one of their group chimed in that he'd do the same every time we scored.   Safe to say I got the better deal
    • I think you may be right. I seem to remember moaning about the lack of goals we scored that season. 
    • That City game was a freak game rather than a brilliant performance.  It was common knowledge that Ericsson was going to be sacked after the game so I don't think their players were fully motivated, City went down to 10 men and a few of their players threw the towel in after that. We scored a few great goals in that game but it felt a bit like a friendly game towards the end of the match.  I think that result has become more famous over the years because of how big City have become, before they had the money they were no bigger than us as a club and it felt like we used to beat them every season. 
    • Funnily enough enough as far as I remember that 8-1 was the only game that entire season when we scored more than 2 goals. I may be wrong but it's what I remember, didn't bother checking haha. 
    • I went for Brentford.  I think the games I'd like to see are the last game at Ayresome Park, Boro 4-1 vs United and Man City 8-1. The last 2 would be a great reminder to the recent Boro teams you are allowed to win by more than a goal and score more than 3 on occasions.
