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 ?

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.

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

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

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
