Boro vs Leeds 1-1 (Wing)

Recommended Posts

I wonder if Clayton will start, he is walking on egg shells to a degree and fast losing his fans favourite tag not just because of fans interaction but his current playing level.

 

We need a united display from team and fans to win this match and I believe we will be better served without Clayton on the pitch, besides he has 9 yellow cards does he not?

 

Hope not considering Mikel is a much better footballer and plays the same position. We'll probably see Clayton at Sheffield on Tuesday though, as I doubt Mikel can play two games in 4 days.

I think the Sheff Utd game is on Wednesday BD

Ah yes, I see that now. Maybe Mikel will actually be ready for both games then. Class player.

I'm at a wedding so thankfully don't have to sit through this.

 

Whoever it was that suggested the best way of following the Boro atm is just to check the scores at full time is definitely on to something. I'll not be back this season.

 

we won't miss you

 

Well you'd have to be actually there to miss him  :whistle:

Leeds away earlier in the season we pressed them high and got in their faces... I really hope we don't do what we pulled at Villa, giving them too much space to play in.

 

That's also what Norwich did to them.  We know how to play against them it's just actually choosing to do it and carrying it out effectively.

Some players missing due to injuries tomorrow possibly?

 

I've seen Britt, Saville, Wing and Hugill listed as doubts

That's only all of our "attacking" outlets, bar Howson. No worries  :omg: :liar:

We are merely messing with their spy they won't know which team to focus on. I expect the attractive expansive football we have been accustomed to throughout this season. The game has classic written all over it.

 

I kept picturing a bloke standing near to all of these training grounds with a blue bucket on his head and a couple of eye slots cut into it but it probably wasn't like that sadly  :( :disappointed:

I think he stands on the bucket so that he can see over the fence.

That could have been KM. He is usually only seen between June and August then for a month in January

Reckon we could see a wing back system? Downing won't start, so winger systems are limited unless he suddenly decides he's happy to play Tab and VLP.

 

If The Ass and Hugill are both out, I'd like to see both Gestede and Fletcher up top - if only because neither can play the lone striker role adequately for different reasons...

    • @Erimus 63 I am not sure how from my post you came to conclusion i was in adoration of Gibson. In fact i actually state “gibson is not perfect”. To be fair no owner is. People who are fans of Gibson can point to justifiable reasons why. And people who are not fans of his can also make some justifiable reasons as to why they are not. I can appreciate both sides of argument. However, the point of my post was to simply say “the grass is not always greener on the other side”.   Do I want to see if the grass is greener? Not really. I see other clubs who were similar in size to us during our PL days and look at where some of them are now and I really dont wish to take the risk. Yes under new ownership, we might end up back in PL but there is also just a good a chance we might end up falling down the leagues and as @Blanco rightly said ultimately not end up existing at all.  For that reason I am not actively going to champion Gibson should leave or sell the club. For all his faults I know he genuinely give a sh*t about this club and wont let us follow the journey that unfortunately some of the other clubs our size have in recent years. And that will more than do for me.
    • I don’t want Gibson to sell the club. However, I do want him to delegate his powers to a Director of Football. Much in the same way that whilst Delia Smith is a great cook, she knows her limitations running a football club in an efficient and effective manner so appointed Stuart Webber to do this. Gibson just rates himself too highly to think that anyone could possibly do this better than him. The Evening Gazette and BBC Tees portray any criticism of Gibson as fans wanting him to sell the club, but it’s not that at all. I think the vast majority want him to be our owner, just not the key decision maker as he’s not very good at it.
    • That is absolute BS. There would be no club without Gibson. The stupid vilification of him is what has to stop.
    • This adoration of Gibson has got to stop. The club is going nowhere with him as owner.
