Middlesbrough v WBA 0-1

Recommended Posts

As most people have said, this is just the kind of game we'll win. We beat West Brom last year at home with a great performance. Fingers crossed we do the same tomorrow.

1-0 Boro. Fletcher to score

Well I have just had a count up of the predictors votes and it ain't good. It is rare to see so many predicting a  Boro defeat and by such a big margin. H3..D3...A12

I have to agree with them looking at the form of Boro,they are stuck down there and I think they had better get used to it. If Woodgate would only change that suit for a tracksuit roll his sleeves up and stop looking like one of those dummies we used to see in a Upton's window all those years ago down Newport Road.

I just might start believing this guy wants this team he supposedly selects to win a game.

Just been reading a piece on Man Utd fans accusing higher management of screwing up their club because they know frig all about football and telling Solskjaer who to pick. Its nice to see  such a big club like Utd  in the same boat as we are at The Riverside  and its all true imo.

Oooops nearly forgot Boro 0  WBA 3

You quoting my line up with nothing, means that I am spot on? 😉 

Or what should we expect, mate?  Anything else you know from the inside at the moment?

A League 1 team against Championship promotion certainties 😥

Tomorrow will be a bench mark to how far we have descended towards relegation 

Unless Randolph has yet another  MOTM performance

I have to say this because for 2 weeks it as been doing my head in on Randolph getting praise for the world cup save he made at 1-1.  I see his game differently to others obviously.

Yes I admit once again he did do a fantastic save but only for him to become a calamity a minute or two later in allowing the opposition to score from a cross he had just created by punching the ball clear of the box to the opposition who then commenced to put in a ball to the far post and we all saw what happened then. You could say I suppose that was the fault of the players not moving out fast enough and you would be right but at the end of the day that ball was crossed and everybody just stood there like statues.

Randolph does have a major weakness and that is  his command and presence in the box and his aerial ability is  very suspect. In his favour perhaps its because of his lack of command, he may be over worked at times and that creates his miss readings of cross's. I would like to see him screaming at players around him and making them do the work. If you look back some of the greats were never really great keepers but they were excellent commander's in the area.

You may think me stupid for digging him out and yes when I see him perform those magnificent saves that gain us points like he as done these last few seasons since his arrival I often think that of myself to.

But there is no getting away from it if he concentrated a little more on telling those around him what positions they should get into and what players to watch and getting a lot of the sluggish players out of the area asap we may start winning games and not losing them.

Personally I would drill this home to him in training and make him overall captain to show the team he as the backing of the coach's.

Quite close from what I heard, but I deleted my comment because I received a further text so didn't know how accurate it was.

We have trained with wing backs all international break and I have heard Clayton is getting dropped and Wing is playing further back.

The issue is Saville - he may be getting brought back into the side after his international form so that would mean HOwson moving to full back instead of Dijksteel.

The 2 line ups I was told were (like I say not sure how accurate now)

 

             Randz

              Fry ayala shotton

howson                            marv

                  Wing 

            McNair           saville

       Britt.                  Fletch

 

or 

                        Randz

              Fry ayala shotton

Dijksteel                            marv

                          Wing 

            McNair           Howson

       Britt.                  Fletch

 

These could be completely wrong of course, but that's what we have been working on in training

Is it just me that's dreading the thought of Howson at wingback?

Yeah yeah .. you all think we suck .. which we might do .. 

I still love the Boro and I'm not even English... 

Every game I hope for something good and signs of things getting better .. And I will always do that .. I survived the dreadful *** since relegation and untill Karanka was appointed .. I watched and listened to every game possible then and I still do .. And I still enjoy it .. 

It's like a marriage .. You cannot just enjoy the goods and then give up when there is a bad time ... When things not go your way, one must try harder .. 

If you feed the misery, it will stay ... 

So here's hoping it will be a good game of football  and points for us 😉

I suspect we will start okay and give everyone false hope, then concede a couple before half time and it'll be game over. We simply don't have the confidence or midfield nous to turn a game around when it starts to slip away from us.

    • So... We'll get 3...? 😂 
    • How long does it take for an application to fans forum to be decided?  Surely it shouldn’t take more than a month, if we haven’t heard anything back by end of this month then I think we should write it off as a bad job tbh. My use of end of the month for a deadline based on the fact that if we have been accepted before then we will need time to arrange a representative to attend and meetings are usually earlier in the month, also if we haven’t been invited as a member to the December meeting that will mean it’s taken over 2 meetings periods. Not having a go at the forum club or it’s members just wondering how long does it take to say yes you can join, or no you cannot join, as the agenda for the November meeting made no mention of our application.

    • Ah, great times back in 1995. That was really quite an occasion. Hard to believe the calibre of players we could attract back then. Interesting to note in that 1982 paper, one of the articles states that the club was losing 12 grand a week. Seems all was not well, long before 1986. 😞
