Middlesbrough vs Swansea (A)

 

350x400https://imgur.com/dX8uaXd.jpg[/img]

 

Saturday 3pm brings us a do or die clash as Tony Pulis’ Middlesbrough battle Graham Potter’s Swansea. Boro failed to arrest their terrible slump in form last time out against the Robins, so you might be asking yourself what chance do we have against a much more impressive bird: the Swan? Luckily Boro get to play this fixture with Away field advantage and you can’t get much further away than the Liberty Stadium…

 

With Play-off places fast disappearing over the horizon, this feels like a must win with only 7 games left to make up the gap and a lot of teams competing. Could a defeat be TPs last game in charge?

 

The Reverse Fixture

Earlier on in the season - at the Riverside - the result was a drab 0-0 draw played out during Boro’s barren home spell in front of goal. We play Swansea in a barren spell again, having failed to score in our last 3 matches and without a victory in 6.

 

View from the Opposition

Nothing as of yet.

 

Questions

How many more shots can we have without scoring?

Will there be any changes to the starting XI?

Score predictions for this one?

Can we still make Top 6?

Would you “give it Woodsy till the end of the season”?

About as exciting as our last trip to wales I fear

 

I can only see defeat but we might scrape a draw if they fail to score as well!

Swansea's recent form is on the up and probably looking for an outside chance of getting into top 6 but highly unlikely but playing Boro will keep their hopes alive.

 

Sadly another defeat for Tony's fractured club

Nice OP foogle, but honestly I don't care. I don't think a loss will get him sacked and I don't think I could handle the rhetoric about still being in It, We've turned a corner, #believe, #keepthefaith if we somehow managed to win.

 

For me it's 1 down, 6 to go. And then (hopefully) we can move on from TP and maybe by the start of next season brexit will be sorted to a degree and the SG can either follow pulis or start putting the club towards the top of his priority list again.

 

Until then, I repeat, I don't care

Exactly how I've started to see it.  Just want the games to come quickly so we can get the season over with.

 

2-0 Swansea

I'll go 2-0 Swansea, good result last night for them against Brentford, I never ever thought I'd say this about a Boro team but I seriously don't want us to make the play offs, I want this ***er gone, so I'll sacrifice this season for Pulis's head on a platter.

Well I think you said at the start of the season that you thought we'd finish midtable, I doubt being correct about that has bought you much joy though :(

I’m going for us to beat Swansea on Saturday.

Surely I can’t be wrong every week

Think we'll get a draw in this one, as we seem to be better away from home.

None at all. I truly wish he had been a roaring success, taken us up, consolidated with a "boring" 17th and then we move on with a decent premier league squad and money to spend.

 

Unfortunately he is what I thought and we are where we are.

 

Like I said, I'm just looking forward to a pulis free Boro, when I may start caring again. I do wonder how many will stay away though. And not come back for a good while. And how many of their kids will move on to do something else on a Saturday rather than follow the Boro

I think that's the danger Tudders. Once you stop going it's not always easy to go back.

I think season tickets will be way down and can you blame them.

Complete fresh start needed and that doesn't mean yet more Boro old boys.

I can't remember feeling this apathetic towards the club in my 45 years of following them.

Pulis has killed it for me and Gibson has to take blame also, he appointed him knowing the style of football he plays.

Dark times indeed.

Swansea 2-0,could be more.

    • If the manager talks about bad attitude and getting rid, then that destroys any bargaining position and lowers any potential fee further. It's amateur to do that, not to talk up a player. Additionally if we can't offload and needed him to be available for the team then best to have him onside in that eventuality. Remember the euro transfer window is open much longer than the championship one, so we could have potentially had him on the books for the first few weeks of the season and still be paying him during that time.
    • 5 million in, toxic attitude out and 50k off the wage bill.. it’s a no brainer. Don’t really like Woody setting himself up to fail tho.. Defending MB and saying he wants to stay.. why do it? And why is the press officer letting those quotes go out? It’s so amateur.
    • He's the biggest shareholder in Barnsley so he couldn't actually buy us without selling his stake in them.  I like your out of the box thinking though, as always 👍
    • It's probably worth remembering that we signed Braithwaite as a Championship club.  I think jamesp is about right in what he has said really.  We signed a player for £9m and whatever he gets paid per week as a Championship club.  You can talk about parachute payments if you like but it doesn't change the fact that we're taking a hit on him after taking a hit on Flint.  It's the right thing to do but it's still *** poor on the part of the club.
