Feels like a big opportunity for Walker this. Given we're so light up top a good performance could force him closer to the 1st team.

Huge opportunity for him I think this is his first start for us last season I remember sub cameos I don't think Pulis handed him a start?

Really intriguing game from seeing Friend LCB in a back 4 with Wood to Tav and Sav can they shine themselves plus the 3 new boys and Walker I think it's setup to be a very interesting evening with a couple of potentially breakout moments definitely possible.

Completely agree, it's looking like a fun evening to keep an eye on.

You're correct btw, Walker got 16 minutes in the FA Cup and 48 in the EFL Cup last season

Delighted with that team! Especially walker and even gestede playing, we need more options up in the final third so we need to see if they can bring anything to the table in our new formation.

Walker seems to be having a good go judging by the written commentary on BBC Sport.

I will. Looking tidy, we've had most possession and Clayton had two players on him and did a Cruyff turn and did them like kippers - my life is complete

There's a lad at the bar who looks like Max Verstappen - I asked if anyone has ever mentioned it and he said "I'm always getting compared with fictional characters"

Browne looking very lively and George friend beat their right winger? For pace.

    • One thing I gleamed from the report from the Palace game (give the post a read if you havent - interesting write up) is that our team came out with attacking intent, pressed high and blew Palace away. Kinda like how I thought Luton was going to go and how I thought the season would progress. The golden thread. The philosophy which would permeate through all age groups to ease continuation through the ranks. If we are going to dominate Charlton thats what we need to do. Get high up the pitch, force them into panicked clearances, then start the attack again. With our defensive fraility it feels like attacking high press is the best form of defence and its a tactic I am not happy we abandoned so hastilly.
    • Definitely a Gibson type manager
    • You have to admit Alf was right about the rebirth of the Boro........just got the year wrong (and just about everything else   the last three paragraphs of that Gazette comment shows how much things have changed since then

    • yeah....Hughton likes giant defenders....playing with one up front ...."combative" box-to-box midfielders and favours "narrow" rather than "wide" formations.......based on South Coast and known for teams that score very few goals....does this sound familiar?....on the plus side, he is very experienced, by all accounts respected by players and isn't "controversial"...but is he really going to produce better football than people were so unhappy about twelve months ago.......(having said that, if he was appointed as a short term "keep us in the Championship" deal, I could live with that)
