Good OP FB been a while since we have seen this format, Boro Badger would be pleased to see this.

Is the IB ever good for Boro? Hard to say but we have lost the opportunity to bring on Rudy as a game changer due to it, yep being sarcastic.

Ra,ra.ra, gooooooooooooooo Adaaaaaaaam!

Very good OP. I hadn’t seen that format before and I like it. Well done FB. 

I would agree with Chip for the first 3 answers but @SmogDane has nailed the fourth one. It’s the beer all day long for me 😀

We need to start winning the home games and quickly, I think Reading are pretty useful having made some good signings.

Thinking a 2-1 win but not with much confidence though.

Reading are a good example of how quickly things can change in this league. I know plenty of their fans who were saying they were nailed relegation candidates after last season and the first two games of this one. A couple of good signings and a few decent results and now they're confident and looking up the table. They're a decent side with good forwards but will 100% give us space to attack... definitely going in my BTTS acca. 

Really hard one to call, I just hope two weeks on the training ground has done us good and we don't gift them goals with individual errors at the back. For that reason Shotton just can't play for me... he can have a great 89 minutes and then still tank a game for us as he can't pick a pass. Doesn't matter as much on the wing but fatal from a centre back. Howson back in at RB as can't ignore his form there.

Ayala in for Shotton if he's available. Otherwise, same again, I think.

Good morning, SD 😄 

Randz in goal ofc 

Hmm I wanted to do a 5-3-2  or a 3-5-2 with wing backs to stretch Reading (not the player) 


And I am not even drunk 😄

Questions:

1) Result? 

3-1 to the mighty Boro. Assomabalonga to bang 2 in and Fletcher to get one. I think we will go 1 down quite early on.

2) Preferred back 4 to start this game? 

Dijksteele...Ayala...Fry...Bola

3) Do you consider Reading to be relegation candidates this year?

No i think they will finish mid table.

Good effort with the OP Familyboro!

 

We played pretty well last game, so hopefully we can continue that and find some consistency between now and the next int break.

 

1) Result will be 2-1 to Boro. Not a convincing victory, but three points none the less.

2) Preferred back 4 to start this game?  

Dijksteel, Ayala, Fry, Bola

3) Do you consider Reading to be relegation candidates this year?

Yes. Or play off contenders. Can never really tell with reading...

4) Favourite Royal?

Kate. Mmm

    • 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
