Boro v Brentford 0-1

Recommended Posts

I just hope despite a lot of movement that we're able to field a similar team, one that's gone through the pre-season and isn't destabilised by the late window business. I'd still keep Howson in the team for this one at RB despite signing Dijksteel now.

Howson stays in for this week for me as well, Dijksteel coming in too late to start for me maybe some minutes later on in the game for him.

I think i’d keep it similar to the Luton line up - one change I might go for is Bola for Fletcher. Harsh to drop him after scoring, but I’d prefer to see Coulson further up the pitch and Bola in at left back.

The rest I would leave the same, unless Fry or Friend is fit enough to start over Shotton.

Obviously, if anyone leaves then it might force a change.

I also think this is a tough game, Brentford are always a tricky side to play as they have some real talent going forward. I think we can win it, but wouldn’t be unhappy with a draw. Still need to give this new style some time to bed in!

Losing Sawyers and Maupay is a huge dent to their attack and it's probably too early for the new additions to make an impact as we saw in the first game. It's a good time to play them in my eyes.

They could very well lose Benrahma to Villa before Thursday aswell, it looks like they might manage to hold onto Watkins but losing the other 3 could blunt their attacking prowess considerably until the new boys settle in.

Unfortunately whenever I think it's a good time to play a team we always end up losing ?

It’s probably a good time to play boro too so that evens things out.

I had a dream last night that we absolutely demolished them 5-0.

Would love it - their loss to Birmingham was against the run of the game though.

I reckon it'll be a good game but we'll get beat 3-1, come slightly too early for us Brentford I fear as we need a bit more time to improve defensively 

I'd like to see                                       

-----------------Randolph

Dijksteel--Ayala--Friend--Coulson

--------Wing--Clayton--Howson

Browne---------Britt---------Fletcher

But imagine that Howson will be RB with McNair in the middle, I'm happy for McNair to play midfield but think we need a specialist Right Back vs Brentford's wingers so would rather Dijksteel come straight in for us 

Woody'll probably have Johnson starting too

When is Fry back?

    • You couldn't really legislate for Hugill scoring a worldy. That said even though we were crap and sloppy, but we should've got a point out of it.
    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.
