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...

    • To be awkward, because, well, I am awkward, I decided not to include the Premier League season.  Being honest about it, Negredo is easily the best forward from this decade in terms of quality.  Even players like Chambers, Fischer, Espinosa, would probably walk into many of the teams we fielded over the decade.  Given that many of those players did bugger all really, I don't want to pick them so it's Championship players only.                Randolph Fabio  Ayala Gibson Friend          Clayton Leadbitter                  Robson Adomah                Ramirez                 Bamford   It was tougher than I thought really.  GK was easy enough for me as it was really between Randolph and Given and Randolph has been pretty much our best, most consistent player since he signed for us.  Right back was a toughy.  I don't think any of them were especially good for any length of time.  I almost snuck Rhys Williams in there to get him into the side but he wasn't that good as a right back so I didn't.  Hoyte, McMahon, Varga, Fredericks, Kalas, Nsue, Christie, Fabio, Shotton, Howson.  In the end I cheated slightly and selected Fabio as I think he was probably the better player out of that lot.  Nsue probably should have been chosen though as he played more games.  Central defenders speak for themselves.  Maybe could have looked at Williams here because when he was fit, healthy and on top of his game, he was a good player or Wheater before he left but they are not in the same class as that partnership was for us.  Friend is obvious at left back, great value signing and played for a lot of the decade. In midfield, I was a big fan of Robson and would have liked to see him playing in better sides.  I think he'd have done ok for Karanka for example.  But you also have to respect the job that Leadbitter and Clayton did as well so I ended up selecting all three.  I didn't think that the likes of Arca, Butterfield, Whitehead, Bailey, McEachran or the more recent lot had done enough to get into the side. The attacking players were a bit tricky as well.  Adomah I would say is the easiest choice as he did well for us over 3 seasons.  Bamford is the best striker I've seen playing for us in the Championship so would have to select him ahead of Lita, McDonald, Emnes, Juke, Nugent, Assombalonga etc.  I didn't like selecting Ramirez as he only had a 6 month spell with us in the Championship and I think he's a *** but he did have a big impact in that time and he was a good player.  I suppose Tomlin, Traore, and one or two others might have cause to grumble about not being selected but I feel Ramirez had a bigger impact than them. I reckon that team gets promoted fairly comfortably.
    • Well, I'd guess Assombalonga, Randolph, Fry, McNair, Tavernier would probably have higher values than say Ayala, Howson, Shotton, Clayton etc given contract lengths and ages.  So I'm assuming the first group is where the sales would come from if it's highest fees were looking for rather than the second group?
    • Why highly probably? Its certainly possible. But not highly probable. Were 9/4 to go down, so the bookies clearly arent convinced. there currently are 4 teams below us and a few within touching distance above us. People are in hysteria because weve been poor without even considering that there are likely to be 3 poorer teams than us in the division as the results have shown so far.
