If Wood plays any part he'll be Boro's youngest player ever

 

Yeah that's why I'm guessing even though I think he'll throw in 5-6 youngsters he'll avoid putting in Wood, we threw Fry in at the deep end a few years ago in these kind of cup games but we're talking about Fry being 17 at the time I think it'd be a hell of a statement and a lot of pressure on Wood to throw him in there.

 

I think an interesting question is if we assume we'll play 3 CBs whether we can throw in Djed Spence at RWB I mean he trained with the squad during pre season it's pretty low risk position to test a youngster out and it would let us rest Shotton but who knows. Pulis post match said because of the size of the squad he'd play quite a few youngsters here and that the fans would understand that I think we could easily see Tav/Chapman/Spence/Mahmutovic/Wood start here I doubt a cup run is high on anyone's priorities. Would love to see us shift to a 343 with Chap LW Tav RW Fletch ST that'd be an interesting watch with Spence/Johnson at wingback.

I'm hoping to see a few of the younglings in the squad tonight, but we do need to be wary of an upset. It will also be interesting to see if Marvin Johnson is in the squad today.

As much as the league is the focus, I do think decent cup runs help you out.

Wood has been doing pre-match training with the first team despite not being on the bench. And Pulis said in the manager meet-up at the Riverside something along the lines of "hopefully he'll get an appearance before he's 17 as that'd be fantastic". That means he'd have to pick him either today or in another cup game, surely. He's got all season to make that appearance for that to come true but tonight is as good a time as any.

 

Wood hasn't even been in the U23s, they played at Southampton on Friday and Wood seemingly wasn't in the squad. Mahmutovic and Spence both were. Obviously plenty of time for either of the latter to come in for tonight's game, Spence isn't a bad shout given that Shotton probably needs a rest but I reckon Mahmutovic is closer to our first team right now.

That's a decent team I'm guessing 343 formation it should be good enough, Fletcher's big chance to shine here he should be well supplied from the wings let's see.

Wow, I hope they have their names on the backs of their shirts, otherwise somebody will have to introduce them to each other before the kickoff. There are wholesale changes and then there is this, best of luck to the lads making their debuts and season starts.

    • thats my thinking too, we normally dont turn up for this sort of game, im hoping today is different, i say hoping but praying is closer to the truth. we cannot concede early or first though. small extra ray of hope is the slight possibility of a points deduction for sheff wed too. we stil need things from our deduction years back evening out.
    • Is this the actual team already, or is it your guess? 
    • On paper that's our most offensive team we could line up with. I'd like to see this team till the end of the season as we have to go out and attack all the remaining games to stand a chance.
    • Hugill is a big Boro fan. I know you usually want to do your best for your current club, but surely he won't want to doom us to league 1! Do us a favour Jord
    • Got a bad feeling about today. But I thought we'd beat Hull easily. So what do I know...
