Recommended Posts

I foresee a hammering coming our way. Reckon BC will beat us 3-0.

I had hoped for 4 points from Millwall and Bristol City so I suppose we are going to have to do it the hard way. I see this game as being a real test, not just in playing terms but of Woodgate's bravery. This has the potential for us to get a bit of a spanking. If we are going to set up higher up the pitch I could see us going 3 at the back with Fry now fit. I would imagine the wingbacks being Howson and Bola if Dijksteel isnt fit. Midfield 3 of Wing, Clayton and Mcnair, with Britt and Fletcher up top. I suppose the obvious problem will be the front 2 not being able to hold the ball up and us giving possession away cheaply, but they would then have to try and play through us.

Hoping for a 1-0.

Randz

Dijksteel(if fit)/Shotton Fry Ayala Bola

Claytz

McNair Wing

Browne Assombalonga Johnson

 

Scrape a 2-1 win. A poor refereeing decision going in out favour for a change.

 

Has to happen sometime, doesn't it?

Not sure Browne has done enough to be picked again so soon, never mind replacing Fletcher.

 

Randolph

Djik(Howson) Ayala Fry Coulson (Bola)

Clayton

McNair Howson (Wing)

Marvin Britt Fletcher

Would definitely look at playing 5 at the back for away games atm. 

                             Randz

              Shotton Ayala   Fry

Djiksteel                                     Bola

             Howson McNair Wing

                     Britt     Fletcher

If we go with the usual formation can see us getting a hiding.

I think at best a draw but I can see us going down by two to three goals. It’s a test before we play the bigger teams and with Leeds 8 pts in front already it could get ugly before it gets better.

We'll be lucky to get a point from this one I reckon.

2-0 to BC and the premature bedwetting from the usual outlets to continue. God I hate BBC Tees.

Gosh the post count is very low compared to recent m/d threads has our bubble burst I wonder?

We normally play well at Bristol and we have to get an away win at some point so why not Saturday?

0-1 to Boro

    • The Boro are unbeaten in the last 4 games & on the back of a 1-0 win at home to Reading travel to South Wales to take on recently relegated Cardiff City who sit below the Boro in the championship table on goal difference, there record is the same as the Boro’s so far, played 7, won 2, drew 3, lost 2 One of the bookies favourites to return to the PL Cardiff have found it anything but easy, they’ve had a busy summer in the transfer market bringing in up to 10 players, including our very own Aden Flint a big money transfer Cardiff are without a win in the last 3 games after starting the season with 2 wins & a draw from their opening 3 home fixtures, this will be another testing time for team  But its about the Boro, how Jonathan Woodgate sets us up, formation we play too, Luton & Bristol City away we played fast attacking football though & IMHO, a win was what we deserved, a draw is what we got in both games Will Woodgate to stick with the team that started against Reading?  Will Woodgate keep with Shotton, or bring in Ayala to partner Dael Fry? Another game for both Dijksteel & Bola to build their confidence Paddy McNair continues to improve in his new role, along with Johnson & Fletcher,Assombalonga will scare the life out of most Championship defences Unfortunately Hayden Coulson, who was playing fantastically well then injured is still unavailable, along with Jonny Howson   The 1st fixture away to Cardiff City on the 24th September 1921, Boro losing 3-1 Cardiff City v Boro fixture will be the 31st fixture in South Wales between the 2 teams with the following record: Won 6 Drew 4 Lost 20 Goals scored - 31 Goals against - 54   Did you know: May 1965 – Winner takes all final match of the season, winners stay up, losers go down, Boro’s centre half Dickie Rooks scores a hat trick, unfortunately, Cardiff score 5 as we lose the game 5-3 & relegated to the 3rd division Andy Campbell is a hero in Cardiff, he scored the winning goal against QPR in the playoff final Stephen Pears Boro’s 1st loaned signing made his loan at home to Cardiff 5th November 83 Never been a goaless draw between both teams in Cardiff   Played for both clubs: Micky Burns - 61 games for Boro, scoring 24 goals, played 6 for Cardiff scoring zero goals Alan Foggon - 115 games for Boro, scoring 45 goals, played 17 for Cardiff scoring 1 goal Jonny Vincent - 40 games for Boro, scoring 7 goals, played 66 for Cardiff scoring 11 goals George Smith - 74 games for Boro, zero goals, played 45 for Cardiff scoring 1 goal Andy Crawford - 9 games for Boro, scoring 1 goal, played 6 for Cardiff scoring 1 goal Ironically Andy Crawfords only Boro goal was against Cardiff in the same game as Pears debut Andy Campbell - 56 games for Boro, scoring 4 goals, played 73 for Cardiff scoring 12 goals Graham Kavanagh - 35 games for Boro, scoring 3 goals, played 142 for Cardiff scoring 28 goals Lee Tomlin - 56 games for Boro, scoring 11 goals, played 16 for Cardiff scoring 1 goal Joe Bennett - 85 games for Boro, scoring 1 goal, played 99 for Cardiff scoring 4 goals Andy Dibble - 21 games for Boro, 62 games for the Cardiff Aden Flint - 39 games for Boro, scoring 1 goal, played 7 for Cardiff scoring 1 goal
