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

Recommended Posts

Did we know Ayala was injured? It must have been a last minute thing because surely we would have pulled wood from the youth squads game last night if we did?

Worried about that defence. Two full backs who look pretty devoid of confidence, a returning Fry (again quite a quiet player) and Shotton. Rest of the team looks fine to me. Just the defence without Ayala, he is our rock, we will definitely miss him in both boxes for headers.

do they have any big lads?

A back four that has never played today isn't what we need away at Bristol C... Shotton is so bad that I would rather sacrifice McNair from the midfield and play him in defence. This season Shotton has given up at least one major goalscoring chance per game... complete liability at centre half. 

Lets hope the effort and attitude are spot on and we can spring a suckerpunch or two on them going forward!

Baker is around 190?

Happy enough with that line up, if you swap Ayala and Howson for Shotton and Clayton I think we have our strongest 11

Worrying that there is no Ayala and Howson has been key this season so far. 

Hoping it clicks.

Ok apologies but I’m in Berlin airport which my flight is delayed which means two things 

a) I’ll miss the match on tele 

and

2) I will spend a lot longer in the lounge with free G&T than anticipated so sorry for what I may post ?

Nice see Fry as captain - Hopefully 1 of many occasions this season to build confidence and put more £ on his head!

I really really worry about that defence though against a very offensive Bristol City team.

Cheer OC ?

i was being slightly facetious (read my airport post for context) but being a solid 175cm anything else seems excessive ?

    • Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview. 
    • Just got back (found a nice pub after the game). Eerily similar to the spurs game earlier in the week. Preposterous first half full of errors, lying deep and conceding the midfield. Second half was end to end. Boro supporters in full voice, home fans mustering little. Roberts was excellent, he didn't stop running. Fulham looked dead good though, It took us a full half until we could scare them. I'd like to think a draw would have been fair but I think Fulham were just better (and so they should be). Onwards and upwards.
    • I always thought Reece Oxford was a DM? I swear that’s when he played in that game against arsenal.
    • Woodgate also said that he would have loved to have played a back 4 tonight obviously couldn’t since we only have 1 for centre half.    Personally think Woody wants to go back to the original plan of 4-3-3 as soon as he possibly can.
