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:

    • The whole Cummings affair and how much the senior Tory cabinet members have attempted to shield him from being held responsible really drives that home. It's so important that everyone adheres to the rules and adheres to the spirit of it, get out and clap every Thursday and as one body and mind, we'll get through this together. Unless you're the chief adviser to the PM, in which case the only thing that matters is whether you've legally done anything wrong. And what drives me up the *** wall is how hardcore Brexiteers spent the entirety of the 2019 election campaign defending the media harassment of anybody who might think walking off the edge of a cliff is a bad idea, but now think the media are the scum of the Earth for taking on poor family man Dominic Cummings.
    • Ah but BD, you live in a country where people are socially responsible, we live in a vou try with a weak government that gives out mixed messages that are in turn interpreted by the general public to fit there own agendas.  it’s very worrying.

    • My local club was back in action again yesterday behind closed doors. However they had invited supporters to join via zoom and had then set up huge big screens in the stadium in front of the stands that could show up to 200 hundred streams of supporters from their own homes. I watched the game on TV while also attending via zoom and it actually worked fine. There is a video of it here on a Danish newspaper. Just let it get past the commercials https://ekstrabladet.dk/sport/fodbold/dansk_fodbold/superligaen/agf/gaar-verden-rundt-igen-banebrydende/8141368 They also played a sound stream out through the PA system of a former home match, so you got some crowd noise and singing. The players were really happy about it and the atmosphere also got though on TV. Days before the game it was also possible to go the fan shop and get free cardboard figures to paint and set up in the stands. Football is back and I love it.
    • OK, I may have said too much by saying "it isn't dangerous in any way". While I obviously acknowledge that there is risk when humans have contact, I'll rephrase it to probably one of the lowest risks across the country considering they are well guarded and have weekly tests so they can be treated immediatly and they are healthy young athletes.   Well that was something I would expect, and even if football was still under lockdown in Germany they might have gotten it anyway considering they have interactions with people outside football too. At least they are quickly diagnosed now so they can go into quarantine and their family can get tested right away too. This way you can easily and quickly break the chain of infection.  It's hardly the footballing industry's fault that people can't behave properly. We've opened up a lot over the last month in Denmark and massively increased testing and the number of infected people have still dropped massively and the number of people in hospital have decreased to a level where it's almost insignificant and the we're only using 4% of our respirators.  My point is we need to learn to live with it and looking at the professional football industry the risks aren't big enough to justify keeping it under lockdown. What people do in the private households isn't the fault of football. There are thousands of jobs on the line and you can't just keep that locked down when the risks don't justify it. It really hasn't got anything to do with greed but rather a weighted consideration of which industry can open at what risk. I really fail to see the huge risks of football behind closed doors. If it's because people will get together in large gatherings, drink from the same beer and not keep a distance then it's because they are stupid and not because of football itself.
