Recommended Posts

Just leaving Glasgow. Train to Edinburgh then York, pick the family up and off to the Riverside. Hope the lads are as bothered as me about tonight.

If I was Pulis I'd put Traore in the squad, just for the craic if nothing else. Even if he just left him on the bench it'd be good.

I'd put Billal Brahimi on the bench and give him the #37 and watch the chaos ensue.

 

"And number 37... Adamaaaaa... wait, what? He's gone? Who's that?"

Boro site says Pulis will be picking from the same squad as the Millwall game, so no injury comebacks for McNair, Gestede, Ayala, etc.

What is McNair's injury?

Depending on whether you believe such things, according to one of the other forums the team tonight is:

 

Randolph

Shotton

Fry

Flint

Friend

Clayton

Howson

Wing

Downing

Braithwaite

Assombalonga

 

That person has gotten it right before I seem to remember.

Game is on sky sports

 

How do you watch through sky sports?

On red button apparently, can anyone confirm this?

That's what it's supposed to be yeah but this is the first time they'll have done it.

I quite like that team actually, i'd prefer Chapman to Downing but beggars can't be choosers.

Basically Leadbitter out and Wing in, which seems fair enough with the current set of players. Wing offers something completely different to Leadbitter, which at home we should be trying to make use of if we have no better in the squad.

I’ve not even seen this advertised. I’ve had a google and can’t find anything. Great if it’s true

    • No and its not healthy. I've seen posts on fmttm today with people saying they'll back Gibson even if he takes us down. That's fair enough but how long does this unconditional support continue?  I think some would let him take us down to non league and still chant his name in the ground.  I think people look at clubs like Sunderland and Coventry and worry that we could end up like that. They never mention clubs like Leicester and Wolves who have been similar sized clubs to us for the last 30-40 years.  It was always seen as sacrilege to criticise Gibson and it would have been madness to even think about him leaving, but I think he's gone stale now. I think if the club wants to be a club competing at the top end of this division again we either need a new owner or he takes a back seat and leaves the strategic running of the club to someone else.  Gibson is probably the best thing to ever happen to this club, the journey from 86-06 was incredible but things have gone completely stale. It feels like we need new ideas at the club now. 
    • Please put everyone right then Mr Noitall with your wealth of knowledge 😉
    • You'd be picking fights too with the likes of Woodgate and Downing causing discord in the dressing room.
    • We’ve got the following problems -  1 - a manager with no long term attachment to the club. He will try to do his best but ultimately it’s not the same knowing he won’t be here next season.    2 - a squad of players who are coming to the end of their time with boro. Some are on loan and some are moving on. Reality being that they don’t care about the shirt and will leave boro when we go down anyway. Can a manager who isn’t attached to the club long term motivate players who are about to leave? The last two games would suspect not.    3 - our style of play has again changed with a new manager. Evidence would suggest that it isn’t suited to our players. (We can’t cross or score from set pieces).     4 - coming out of COVID is always going to be tricky, but we are going down without a whimper. It literally feels like De Ja Vu form the prem season when we played Swansea today. Just waiting for that moment to come where the players are revved up and raring to go. Alas, it didn’t come.    5- the final problem we have is that teams around us are picking up points. They look like they want it more and it just pains me to see us shaft it each time we play a game.
