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.

    • Not to prolong the point for too long as last night exhausted me so much so that I want to frankly rid politics and politicians from the system for a couple of years, right now... 😂 but the proposed funding for the NHS doesn't stack up. Admittedly, contrary to what some on the left say, I'm pretty sure the Tories recently have been putting more in even in real terms and that's all well and good... but the NHS is becoming more expensive due to the ageing population without even considering the strain that the level of funding is putting on workers, especially with little to no financial reward from it. It's one of the best things about our country and for it to remain that way, we have to fund it more than we ever have. I'd frankly throw a lot of the nationalisation policies in the bin if it meant we just gave the NHS the money it needed to keep being great. If as I suspect, we do enter into a trade deal with the US with anything to do with health on the table, that number will rise even more. Tories are more likely to make tax cuts than ask for more tax to pay for anything so by that measure, the lowest rungs on the societal ladder of our country will fall off first. The NHS, mental health, social care, etc. there's not enough going in to solve these problems. Labour's spending plans were through the roof but the Tories are barely spending anything at all based on their plans. I was listening to Mark Francois on LBC the other week talking to a fella with a wife and 2 kids who looks after both his now disabled parents as a carer so their only income is his carer's allowance and his wife's job, £14k for looking after children with special needs, something like £18k overall? He asks Francois what the Tories will do for him and the best he can come up with is that over time, he'll be able to keep more of his money from tax. I sincerely worry for people like that who contribute so much in a very small, localised circle getting little support from this government. It genuinely makes me sad that people who can't do anything but put a brave face on every day and just get by get nothing in return for it.
    • I mean, I know it's pretty difficult to trust any politician, especially Johnson, but the NHS and improving it was like the first key point (after Brexit obviously) that he talked about, so fingers crossed he actually legitimately sticks to what he said in his speech, because I didn't disagree with any of it. Now I suppose we just have to wait and see..
    • We need to go with 2 strikers up top. If Britt is fit off course he comes back in but if not I’d give Walker a go alongside Fletcher. Look very weak leaving Fletcher up front isolated. 
    • I feel like it could be another 7-0 win for us, I really do.
