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:

He'll be asleep by half time. 

My 5 year old got to 60 mins of the Cardiff game before turning to me and saying, "Daddy, this is really boring!".. I could only agree!

And that was on a Saturday afternoon!

Bad first half and yes he will probably be asleep!

Suspect the crowd will be very small tonight. It was pretty much empty by 80 minutes on Saturday. Didn't help that the owls fans were superb either - made it feel like an away game for us.

Worrying that it's looking like we might be dragged into a relegation battle.

I'd definitely start Ayala (for shotton). Keep the rest of the team the same. Maybe Howson on for dijksteel, although I thought he was ok the other night 

 

I've put 1-1 on my super 6.

I think the first 15-20minutes are crucial tonight.

Intrigued to see if Preston come out and attack or sit back until the fans start to get impatient. 

Lack of activity of this thread once again show the lack of optimism and care round the club at the moment.

I'm going for a 1-1 draw unfortunately.

I'm currently on way to ground now and I fully expect the mood to be dampened from the start.

Changes tonight and it's nice to see HOwson back in the starting line up.

UTB!

I suspect lowest (league game) crowd of the season, yes, 17-18k I reckon.

I wonder if Fry might be dropped rather than Shotton. Or maybe even Bola like at the weekend. Maybe Clayton for Howson and move Wing further back.

I think I put 1-1 or 2-2 on my super 6.

Cinema Car park is pretty dead. Its usually packed by 1hr before kick off.

This is Tav's chance to nick a place, hope he proves me wrong, as I'm not overly fussed on him.

I'm guessing this is 4-3-3, Howson replacing Wing. Saville squandered his repeated opportunities to do the same.

Well he’s freshened it up a bit. I’d love to see two big performances from Tav and Browne

Glad Howson and tav are starting. Always think Browne has a red card in him when I see him though...

Im hoping its kind of a 4321 and Howson is in midfield. Let Tav and Browne just flutter around Britt. 1 thing thats annoyed me this season is our wide forwards dont seem to switch about much.

Come on Boro! 

Give us something to be excited about, please! We really need it... A good game and points on the board, that'd be nice. 
A good performance from Dijk, Browne, Tav and mainly Ass-man  could do us good .. The rest I think will do ok or at least standard...  But those 4 mentioned really need some confidence from playing good and scoring...

    • Yes I can’t argue with that @TLF10 this season is a write off. We need to stay in the championship and try build for next season.
    • Agree @Blanco. Happy to have him if sums add up for 6 months. If we can get him, plus 2 wide players n a striker i will be happy.   Maddison seems to be one of the wide players we want Jack Clarke or someone else on loan and a striker. Someone mentioned Clarke Harris from Bristol. Hopefully signings in Jan can be a mix of maybe 2 permanant signings n 2 loan signings. If its only loan signings in Jan it makes a huge job of rebuilding in summer a monumental one. So if we can start the long term rebuilding with 1 or 2 permanant signings in jan that be good
    • Top work @boro-unger. Great post. I do not expect McNairs red to be overturned and if JW looks at it properly its not even worth appealing it. (Now i said that it probably will get overturned) Think team and subs picks itself given lack of numbers: Pears Howson Ayala Fry Spence Tav Wing Sav Coulson Fletch Britt Subs: Meijas, Wood, Bola, Clayton, Marv, Rudy, Walker My heart says a nervy 1 nil win. Am trying to be positive so i wont share what my head is saying
    • I think bringing Ben Gibson back makes sense. He is a proven performer in this league. Bringing players up from the league below is a risk and we have showed that with our summer purchases.  We need players who can guarantee that they can perform at this level. 
    • And there was me thinking after Saturdays game that pantomime season had started a little earlier this year. But it makes more sense now you mention it to keep the wage bill down with suspensions.
