Boro v Blackburn (A) 1-0 (Assombalonga)

Recommended Posts

For years I’ve been desperate to get to Boro games but have been unable to due to being born and raised in Ireland. It’s sad that I’ll be in Preston tomorrow, with no plans but don’t feel like going to the game as I really don’t think it is worth £25/30 of my hard earned cash to watch the *** served up by Pulis every week. I feel like the longer Pulis is in charge, the more my interest wanes. Which is really sad, as over the years my mates and family would have always called me obsessive for my support of Boro. I feel as though Pulis is destroying my love for the club.

 

I know how you feel, I've had a season ticket for years and used to go to loads of away games. I must have been to Ewood park a dozen times at least yet I'm not even sure if I'll bother watching it on tv today.

Pulis will never destroy my love for the club, its ingrained deep in my heart. I just don't like it very much at the moment.

Our season won’t be judged on today’s game or the measly 13 games won, but the fact we drew 12 games and only 35 goals. We can’t score goals and if you can’t score goals you don’t win game. One has to go as far down the table to Stoke in 17 th to find anyone who has equally or lower returns. In contrast Norwich has scored 30 more and this is why I can’t understand why Pulis states we can still make automatic promotion. Does he know the average points needed to have a shot at the title is 92 points so basicaly we need 41 more points in the remaining 1/3 of the season. So by the words of Pulis I am overly excited knowing we will be entertained, enthralled, blown away with the quality of football we are about to be served. Why did I ever doubt him..

Just about to set off. Should be a good day out. A proper game of football. Here’s hoping the lads turn up.

You know it’s not healthy to be this drunk at this time in the morning :)

Enjoy, Edin ;)

 

I have a good feeling bout this one! 

 

UTB! 

 

 

To the ones talking about dying love for the club... My love for the club will never die! I don't enjoy watching these games as much as when others have been in charge, but I still enjoy it in some way and I will always follow the Boro no matter what. It's like a marriage.. You don't give up, just because there is a tough month or year!

Finding it hard to find the motivation for this game. I think I'll still have it on in the background, but might catch up on a bit of work whilst its on to distract me from inevitable boredom.

 

Would love to see something a bit different, and a good performance. Surprise me, Tony!

Prepare to see Besic in the starting line up. Pulis has just talked about why Besic don't play... That's normally an indicator of that player starting next game. He did the same with Fletcher and Wing earlier this season :P

 

A win today will give a little hope again..

 

Next round Norwich play Bristol City and Sheffield United play WBA ..

 

We have done well against other top 9 teams, i think .. and everybody has to play each other one more time in the top 9 almost.. We only have Bristol City, Norwich and Nottingham left.

 

Leeds: Birmingham, WBA, Sheff U and Bristol C

 

Norwich: us and Bristol C

 

Bristol C: Norwich, us, Leeds, Birmingham, WBA, Sheff U and Derby

 

Derby: Nottingham, Birmingham, Bristol City and WBA

 

WBA: Sheff U, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol City and Derby

 

Sheffield U: WBA, Leeds, Bristol C, Birmingham and Nottingham

 

Birmingham: Bristol C, WBA, Leeds, Sheff U and Derby

 

Nottingham: Sheff U, Derby and US

 

So only Norwich have fewer top 9 teams to play than us and only Nottingham has equal (3) top 9 teams to play.

 

 

Then count in that Hull and Preston are in form teams, so everybody in the top 9 will lose points .. drastically .. And I wont be surprised to see the top 2 on less than 90 points, when May comes..

You will not need 92 points this season. Most likely it will be lower than the 89 we got in 2016. But yeah automatic is not in our reach anyway

 

2012 you needed 78 points to secure automatic. I think we are looking at that low points this season. But as I said we will not reach that either

Sadly that is sober me. Drinking would have meant still in bed.

 

Great thing we are now about to tuck into sausage butties on the A59.

I’ll take your word for it but I just feel we will win today so it will be less three points required.

    • I can’t agree that a striker would solve all our problems, it’s exactly that kind of thinking that has got us in this position back in 2017. What we need once and for all is footballers who can play in the attacking third and actually keep the ball up there and do stuff with it.  The likes of Jota, Gaston, watkins even *** ‘Chair’. THOSE are the style of players we need to bring in, not more strikers. Watching Brighton today was depressing, their interplay around utds area was great to watch, it was inventive and full of movement. I’m sick of seeing and saying the same thing about how we attack, how predictable and laboured it is. The reason it’s that way is our attacking players just haven’t got the technical ability. We are full of runners and crossers and hoofers, putting hopeful balls into areas. We generally scrap goals or punish opposition mistakes and we will NEVER score any meaningful amount without a decent pattern to our attack.
    • im obviously not suggesting that theres players with 100% conversion rate who scores every time,  i do however believe that there are plenty of strikers that will finish more often than not from 6 yards out like the two birtt britt chances today.
    • Marcus Maddison posted the below on Instagram today. We know Warnock likes a gamble with the likes of Taraabt and El Hadj Diouf. He could be just the person Marcus needs in his life to turn it around and be our outlet. marcusmaddison11 27 today 🥳 but can’t mask the fact that this year has been the worst of my life. No goals achieved, my best friend died 🐕😭, love life non existent ☠️ & now Jobless 🤷🏼‍♂️. So happy birthday To myself & knowing next year can’t be any worse surely 🤔🤨 #mm11 #birthday #inspire #life#job #dad #dog  
    • The thing is we need wingers who create 20 chances a game like Leeds United did for Bamford and co last season 😄. As we currently only create 1 chance if ya lucky per game. 
    • This match showed what we all know is we need to sign some left Wingbacks or actual wingers. As we were better than QPR in every department but the wings that they exposed us on.
