Boro v Luton Town (A) 3-3 (Fletcher, Assombalonga, Wing)

Recommended Posts

First 5/6 games of the season are always unpredictable. Depends on who’s had the better pre season in regards to fitness (think that’s why we do so well last season) and the new signings clicking better. It could be any result but hoping for a win obviously

I just want to watch an exciting game of football. Anything over that is a bonus for me!

Same as Brunner's, looking forward to hopefully seeing a Team that wants to play football and entertain us fans, think it will be a rollercoaster of a season as we transition to a different style with different players.

In the end though it can't be any worse that the rubbish we endured under Pulis.

UTB!

Will be happy with a draw but think we could sneak a win. These got gubbed by Norwich recently so wont be full of confidence. I only saw the highlights of the weekend but we looked a proper team so am cautiously optimistic

So its a heart (2-1 win) , head (1-1) job

As for personnel I see Meijas starting and as one or two have said wouldn't be surprised to see George at left back or at least on the bench.

I think if Randolph is even 80%, he plays. I think despite what Woodgate says about having full confidence in Mejias, he'd still take the risk on an almost-ready Randolph.

I think Luton will be well up for it and we will see a 'World Cup Host' kinda performance full of running, bustling and fast transitions into the final third. I reckon Shotton or Friend will get found out at CB with the movement around them so Clayton in front is a must. Playing Wing and Tav together away to Luton in the first game would be too open and lightweight for me. I'd play McNair in there alongside Wing as he seems to be a well rounded player but appears more physical than Saville.

Hello Boro fans from all around the world! 

I write you from Republic of Moldova, i want to know if Randolph will be able to play the game vs. Luton. An other question is, who will play, Fletcher or Gestede in the atack line with Britt? 

My third question is about corners and free kicks this season. Will Tavernier or someone else? 

Best regards!

Well another warm welcome to the forum as we greet Paul from Moldova.

Why do you follow Boro Paul?

Regarding your questions it would seem that Randolph has a good chance of starting against Luton.

I think you should forget about Gestede and at this time unless there is any developments we should probably see Fletcher in the match day squad.

If Tavernier plays game time then a good chance he will take certain free kicks, corners but we all hope that our free kicks are of much better delivery this year whoever takes them.

The game is on live TV on Friday hopefully you will find a link to watch the game.

First time i heard about Boro in 2006, when they played with Steaua Bucharest. Massimo Macarone was one of favourites players of my childhood and i often picked him in FIFA when i played in career mode.

So, thanks you for the answer! 

 

Also, after i've seen the last six matches, i suppose this team will start:

Meijias; Friend, Ayala, Howson, Shotton; Clayton, Mcnair, Tavernier, Saville, Fletcher, Britt.

I think Browne will start and will take the set pieces as well. He looked good against St Etienne and was on the corners while he was on the pitch. Boro to start the season on a high with a 2-0 win.

I feel like if we survive the first 20 mins and keep their crowd quiet our quality and youth will come through convincingly, really looking forward to this one especially if we can get a couple more in before kick off

I'd rather Wing took them tbh

Wing's corners were largely awful last season, after the first few games. But given that everyone else had the same issue, hopefully that was more to do with Pulis than the player.

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
