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...

    • He scored 19 goals in his last season for us, 14 in the League despite only playing three quarters of the games. The man might have missed the odd game but he was absolutely on fire his last season with us when he played. In the end, maybe we did need his wages off the books. But I'm not sure that's the whole story being told. We also clearly needed to shift Downing off the wage books, moreso even as the productivity was not even close to being worth what we were paying and we weren't in the Premier League when it happened. But it doesn't make what he alleges we did any better. If Viduka was handled similarly then that would also be wrong; it's more to do with the willingness to break agreements made over a handshake or even just general treatment of players fans hold a strong connection with than whether we were right to try and keep them on or not. It'd be good if the chairman never got us into these daft financial arrangements to begin with and maybe we wouldn't be making decisions like that. I think people gave him the benefit of the doubt around what eventually happened in 2009 because we were not long since a club operating in European football and tried to get back to that whilst also cutting back. The risks we've taken that have hampered us most in recent years however have taken place whilst we were already in the Championship and showing very little threat of getting out of it at the right end so I'm not sure why anyone would continue to give him the benefit of the doubt other than they hold some kind of grudge against Downing. I know you're specifically talking about Viduka btw NB4 but I can definitely see how, if we were willing to treat Schwarzer and Downing so poorly, it could be applied to just about anyone including Viduka.
    • Btw I loved viduka at times for us, if he was consistently as good as he could be he would have been one of the best strikers in the league because he had everything. I just don't think we did anything wrong with his contract situation.
    • We aren't under any obligation to start contract talks with anyone at a particular time. Viduka was one of the best paid players in our team at a point where we were about to go on a huge cost cutting exercise as a result over over paying for players for years, of which he was certianly one of them. Add to that that he was very poor or injured for us for long periods up until the last 6 months of his contract, I don't think we did anything wrong there.
    • I think my favourite part about that post Uwe is that I knew it was coming. 😄
    • Now Slayer are sadly no more, maybe we could sign Kerry King as a defender. He might not be very mobile at his age, but it'd be a brave opposition striker who tried to get past him...
