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

Recommended Posts

Regardless of the result it will be great to actually enjoy watching Boro again, it’s been strange not being bothered if we win or loose for the last 12 months

I genuinely love how this forum has pretty much done a 180 on the appointment of Woodgate, just goes to show how a manager who is open and honest about what he has to work with and the style of play he wants to implement can bring us as fans back together.

I'll be the first to admit I wanted anyone but Woody but he's totally convinced me to buy into the project and for the first time in a long time i'm excited about this season!

Same as that, wasn't my first choice. But was an advocate, once it was clear he was to become manager, of giving him a fair crack.

What he and the club have done so far has backed up what they spoke about in his first press conference as manager. Genuinely very excited for this season plus the seasons beyond as we finally seem to have a long term plan!

I think there are some who haven't really posted as often since the announcement who aren't sold, I doubt Duvel has changed stance for example. Which is fine, of course. But yes, the atmosphere in general is much better than it was.

I know woodgate likes 4-3-3, but I think our team is much more suited to 4-2-3-1

Anyone know any pubs in Luton where Boro fans are going?

We are hoping to park and have a drink at the Beech Hill Conservative club as advised by MSS

Yeah somewhat agree. I think so far in preseason and press conferences he has come across really well and sold the vision that we all want to happen as well. It's took some time, but think we have all realised the situation the club is in and moved into being more grateful that it could have been a lot worse if we had to start selling our best players (especially when the article came out about job losses at the Riverside!) The couple of signings who have come in have helped support 'the vision', I guess it also depends what happens over the next week and if a couple more follow with the same ethos then the positivity will likely continue.

    • No no no...he's not Captain Caveman...he's Shrek. 😉  
    • It's a shame there's no sign of someone coming in before Rotherham. Warnock seemed confident of that and keen for it to happen. For me, being the 7th best team in the league this season is OK based on the last few seasons. It's a shame if we cannot push on this season but once again more high wages will be gone in the summer.  I hope either Warnock stays or Gibson goes for someone like Paul Cook. He's done great with teams so far and I would be happy to trust him with this squad and any cash Gibson can give him. I do think if we don't go up the likes of Paddy, Fry, Tav and Dijksteel may attract interest. I wonder if we sold one we could keep hold of the others. Hopefully we don't have to sell them all.  Next season even more of the kids could be ready which is quite exciting really. Especially as we may actually get to see them in person. Fingers crossed for this week and the rest of the season. Hopefully Gibson can work out how to splash a bit of cash.
    • Speaking last week with my mate who gave me the Watmore info he said that Boro are looking to do 3 in 3 out. Britt, Roberts and Wood were the three out  (Wood on loan). other than maybe Wood I don’t think much will have changed.  
    • I genuinely hope you are right and that I am wrong. He originally had a hamstring injury after 4 games for us and just as he was getting close to returning he then suffered a front thigh injury in training which I think required surgery putting him out for at least an additional 10 to 12 weeks which would put his return at around mid to late Feb if his rehab goes to plan. Added to his previous serious long lay off before coming here and it doesn't fill me with optimism. Like I said I hope you are right and my pessimism is without foundation.
    • I think we would need to see a departure or two for any signs of incomings but you never know
