On form I can’t see anything but a lose. I guess 0-2 or 0-3 but it’s possible we may score a goal. Unless during the break Woody has managed to improve this team I expect to be in the bottom three in the next few weeks.

Wing back system getting worked on in training - I expect us to start with that against West Brom.

I also expect us to get absolutely hammered too!

 

I think if we go with this system there are 3 positions which there would be some debate on. RWB, LWB and CM

Be interesting to see who he puts at RWB from Howson & Dijksteel and if he recalls Bola at LWB or goes with Marv.

You assume Paddy and Clayton will start in middle and be joined by one of Wing, Sav or Tav. Or Howson if Dijkksteel starts

Back 3 of Shotton Ayala and Fry and a front 2 of Fletcher and Britt.

Just how involved would you be in a team, knowing at the end of season six of the players contracts run out. If you were one of the better players, just how much effort would you invest. The point being I can’t see how individuals will commit to a club knowing, either they have a vested interest in leaving or a group will be leaving. How is any manager supposed to build a team when players themselves can’t pledge a future.
The club is in serious problems due to mismanagement, which I worry we may not recover from.

We're going to get rolled over. 3-0 defeat.

Well, given what Sheffield Wednesday did to us, I think its gonna be pretty ugly. ☹️

I'm also betting there will be at least 1 own-goal involved (we seem to be good at those lately).

 

(I'm always wrong, so this should guarantee Boro get something out of this)

Just  hoping for a decent result but that's about it, but realistically I think a West Brom 3-1 win.

were a car crash  at present.   im drained of any optomism and actually laughed to myself at recent results.   i have  little or no expectations other than keeping the scoreline below a two goal defeat.   could be another embarrassment i fear.

I’m expecting us to have a good start and slowly fade off, 1-3 to wba. But it’s usually these games where everyone is expecting a battering that we turn up and pull something out so who knows.

    • This day 15th November 1994 - Boro's young guns go down to Ancona in this Anglo-Italian compatition Boro took the lead after 10 minutes then struggled to impose themselves on the game, the youth in the team v experience they were facing proved too much in the end, with Ancona levelling on the hour mark & scoring 2 late goals in the 80th & 90th to put the game beyond Boro 
    • Thing is, we almost certainly will offer him less money. And I don't think based on what he's said that he'd outright deny just less than what he's on. But tackling the wage bill would appear to need more movement than that and actually, a significantly less wage. I wouldn't expect him to stay on those terms. I'd say if the club really cares about wanting to keep him around, they need to approach it carefully, even if they are going to low-ball him to begin with, don't be a *** about it and expect him to say yes to anything because of a commitment to the club. Have a high boundary that you can't go beyond, work up to it and if his representatives think he should say no to our highest offer then we leave it at that and on good terms. No taking the ***, no expecting him to be accepting a pittance for his services on the back of the club as a whole's mistakes, something much bigger than Ayala's responsibility at this club. Most importantly for me, we have to accept the likelihood he leaves and hopefully wish him all the best if he does. I think he's been a great servant for us and I hope, unlike Derby, we treat him as professionally as he's treated being a player for this club.
