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.

    • I was just reading over the summer transfer window thread and I had one or two things to say about this in the summer 😡😀 I also found these two old posts of mine which I feel deserve to be highlighted for their prescience: From the 25th of June: I suspect that if Woodgate intends on us being a pressing / passing team (or whatever his intentions may be for us), that the majority of the players who are already here will be the players playing the bulk of the games.  I think we also have to consider that we must be desperate to get rid of some players and maybe we need to do that first before we sign their replacements?  And you've got to think that the likes of McNair, Tavernier and Fletcher are going to be used a lot more.  I wouldn't say they are like new signings or anything like that but I would see McNair as an obvious replacement for Besic and Tavernier to be used possibly in a variety of ways.  Fletcher takes one of the wide attacking positions and what are we looking for, another wide attacker and a full back or two?  I'm not saying that's how I'm looking at it, I'm just trying to look at it from the club's point of view.  So if we're only looking for a few players then things are more likely to be quiet as compared to previous windows. And even earlier on the 14th of June: It's part of our new philosophy.  Instead of having loads of right backs and one left back we are going to have loads of left backs and one right back. It's all change at Boro.   Absolutely nailed it, hurrah! ✌️ People really need to stop arguing with me now and just accept that I'm always right.
    • I think its, we're having to throw young players in desperate to make an impression and overdoing it
    • The bulk of the money the club owes is to Gibson O'Neill so he won't be putting us into administration.  Our outgoings are too high and really administration isn't going to help much with that.  We either have to reduce costs or increase revenue.  It's easier to do the former than the latter although selling some players will obviously help with that.  That's what we're doing at the moment.
    • The possibility that Gibbo is gradually winding things up in preparation for administration has occurred to me. I've been trying to push the thought away since the summer. There has been a lot of "woe is me, I've been doing everything by the rules and all these other mean clubs are cheating and making it impossible for us to compete financially" stuff coming out since last Spring. If he spins a good enough tale then a lot of fans will still see him as a hero for saving the club in 86 and giving them all these extra years. We get annoyed on here about all the lies and spin which come out of the club, but there are a lot of fans who lap it all up and believe everything they are told.
