Boro v Bristol City (A) 2-2 (Moore (og) Assombalonga)

Recommended Posts

Can’t help but feel we are gonna get battered today. Think they are gonna come right at us and don’t think we will have enough nous to take control of the game. However, these aren’t the games I expect us to win this season, so I won’t be overly disappointed. Just hope we don’t get rolled over live on Sky. UTB

Given Assombalonga has sent out a message saying "Welcome to the world August ?" at midnight, perhaps his partner has given birth, which might explain his potential absence.

This really annoys me. As professional athletes/sportsmen they should know to knock their respective partners up around about this time of the year. That way they will be born In The closed season and not taking the fathers away from their primary duty in life ??????

Got a feeling we'll get caned today. Think it'll be similar to the Bristol City away game under Monk.

Can't see it being anything but that if it's true they've not travelled.

Always a risk that Gestede might start, mind.

They have Diedhiou to cause us problems, a bang average midfield Nagy aside only available CBs seem to be the slow brutes Wright and Baker I mean worldbeaters they are not.

I'm in 2 minds my first mind is saying we should win because the only teams we've really lost to so far have *ithouse longballed it these definitely dont do that yet my second minds telling me we wont score more than 1 goal so therefore we wont win because we don't keep clean sheets so will probably lose.

Not to be so negative but the 'we are basically Norwich circa 2 years ago' nonsense doesn't fit us at all they'd shifted high earners cashed in on most assets bar 1 or 2 we kept all our assets this summer, spent 3 million on 2 young League 1 fullbacks with 12 months on their contract. The 'look at 14th place Norwich under Farke' stuff just doesn't say much about peoples faith in the squad we're paying a fortune to every week or much faith in Woodgate dropping 7 league positions from Pulis' shocking underperformance.

I just kind of get apathetic we're end of August had a really weak transfer window have for the first time in maybe 7-8 years not even loaned a single player in to thicken up an area and from the Gazette to most fans even Woodgate himself is basically screaming don't care about week to week results so I guess I mean if the stuttering 1 point per game average type of season is how this plays out what I'd call a waste of a season and a waste of (probably) the last year of Britt/Randolph/Howson everyone else would get to declare validation in predicting a 14th-19th place finish for a squad with a top 7 wage bill.

Anyway I'll say a 2 0 defeat today I just don't see enough offensively from us building attacks up and defensively if it's not a fullback getting exposed it'll be a set piece we'll get exposed at.

Have to say I'm not as excited about this match as I was the previous few, but hopefully we turn the form around and get a bit of luck today. I'd love a Britt hattrick please. 

Sounds like this is unlikely so!!

Diedhiou does not concern me at all. Think he’s scored one goal all season and I’m sure he’s not even their first choice. Now the players that concern me are 

Weimann & Afobe (and of course Shotton ?)

Being honest I am completly numb to this season already, I'd be very surprised if we got anything here and I think that is going to be the case for large parts of the season from what I've seen so far unfortunately.

Some games might end up being more entertaining than last year, Luton for example, but if we aren't playing for anything its just a season of nothingness for me sadly.

    • I don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
