Boro V Preston North End 1-1 (Fisher OG)

Recommended Posts

I imagine Preston fans will turn up in their droves given the weather will make it feel like home to them, today.

trying to have a bit of positivity  for the game and of course the result  plus the  performance but sadly  if im honest,  the mere fact that id be reasonably happy with not losing  again  is where my mindset is at .  fair play to all the  fans that  believe and trust that things will turn round  but i must admit im struggling  .

I think they's going to be a goal fest as Preston like to play this open attacking football aswell

I can easily stomach another loss, if the players give their all! 

All I want is MEN on the pitch... Players who believe they have to fight, who know they can bring something to the team... NOT cowards who play with an alibi... 

Regarding Woodgate . he still has my backing very much - I won't be judging his style untill the January window closes. 

It's Tuesday, I have MFC TV subscription, I am home alone, I have 2 cold pale ales in the fridge and a bag of crisps and I support my team the best I can, not only when we play good.

I think most the fans can, too. I think the fans can take dropping points right now so long as we look like we should have won. It's already happened at home this season when we've played well enough to win and the players have been clapped off despite dropping points, I was surprised but happy to see that. Can't remember which game it was now but I know we didn't win.

Millwall it might be ?

22 replies on a MDT, a few hours before kick off... That's sad .. 

It is what it is, and I'm looking forward to each game .. We are not some special people who can demand a big change over night... It takes time ..  I have a feeling we might surprise tonight.. On the pitch and in the team selection ?

I've not lost my excitement for going yet this season, I'm looking forward to it again. Come on Woody and the lads, let's show some intent from the kick-off.

Do I have to set off for this? York isn't even that far from Boro so I pity those travelling from further. Any kind of improvement on Sat will be nice...

After Saturdays non performance, I'll settle for a draw, for me I'd put Howson and Tav in  midfield, drop Wing and Clayton, Ayala in at CB and Shotton back at RB, heads have got to roll after that pathetic defeat against Sheff Wed.

Well Teddy's happy that the Boro are being shown on the box but I wonder what his reasons are?

Staying up late on a school night for a 6 year old is appealing or simply because he gets the watch the red and white?

Either way let's hope he goes to bed  happy instead of being bored to sleep:classic_biggrin:

    • A lot of truth in that, could any of us say that these players are giving their all for 90 minutes because given the amount of 50/50 tackles and 2nd balls they lose that's not a team fighting. The players are in a comfort zone that in my opinion is why Woodgate hasn't lost the dressing room.
    • 5000-1 is ringing some bells. 😂
    • Big game this for Woodgate. Arguably, the most important one of his managerial career. On paper, we should win. However, I dont think we will and that reason alone is Woodgate.  Great spot earlier about how non of us know his preferred match selection this far into the season. I myself tried to think which way he would go, but genuinely have 0 idea. 532? 433? 4231? If we're confused, then no doubt the players are as well. And judging by their performances on the pitch, I'd say this is also the case.  It saddens me that he is using the scatter gun approach to see what would work. That to me shows he isnt working on a clear direction or philosophy. Hes just trying to see what sticks.  Putting 4 strikers on up front, then complaining they had no service is laughable. But also worrying. Who is Woodgate turning to for experience? Everyone surrounded by him is so inexperienced it hurts.  I pray that we win today, our club needs it. But if he doesnt, he wont go anyway. Gibson has shown that he will give him time and more time and it will be too late. 
    • I think it says he has very little ability as a manager and that the players just turn up when they feel like it.
