Boro vs West Bromwich Albion 1-0 (Ayala)

Recommended Posts

According to the Boro site, Mo has taken Adama's #37.

 

He's also bleached his hair blonde!  :omg:

 

Cool.... all we need now is for him to shave about 10 seconds off his 100m time and we’re set :D

 

And gain a couple of stone of muscle  :)

DS award applicable for this game, lucky so and so's (as I can't ever win it)

 

Correct final score and fgs from either side.

 

In case of duplication please put time of goal and the nearest to the actual time will win in a decider.

 

0-0 null and void

Don't want to seen negative, but I've a bit of a bad feeling about this one. West Brom know how a pulis team operates and I feel the limitations of some of our team may well be exposed tonight. Id be happy with a draw.

 

1-1, britt 14th min.

well the problem with facing a pulis team is that everyone knows how they play but as they keep it so simple and do it so well there is no easy way to face it ;)

 

Its like watching Sweden....

After playing a few sides destined for Mid-table, I think this will be a test for our promotion credentials, lose and we're still on our 2 points per game average, 3 points from either this or the Leeds game would be a good return.

I think most people know how a Pulis team operates. I don't think it's what I'd call a complicated way of playing. It's one of the reasons I think we managed to switch to wing-backs so easily. Our style never really changed with the formation change.

 

I think West Brom is a bit of a step up from what we've played so far, there are quality individuals at the very least in their squad. Players that have been playing at the top level together for some time too so they know how each other play and have experience to back that up. It will be a tough game no doubt and I still don't think we have the squad we need to give me the confidence of overcoming them.

 

1-1 for me. Rodriguez to score first. Unchanged team for us. Hopefully Hugill will make the bench after coming through midweek unscathed.

The wife has booked tickets for Kevin Hart at the Ziggo Dome.

 

Really want to tell her to do one cause the match is on, but have to pretend she's more important.

 

To top it off Kevin Hart doesn't allow people or use their phone during the show

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
