Boro v Fulham 0-0

Recommended Posts

Not feeling confident about this one. Think Fulham will be getting promoted this season. Even though they're only 7th, there's only 2 points between them and the autos. 2-0 to Fulham

 

What do you think it will take to stop the rot? 

If we start playing attacking football similar to v Luton - this will get the fans excited again and give the team a bit of impetus. 

 

Do you genuinely think Woodgate knows what he is doing? 

I think he's an ok coach by the sounds of it. Whether he's a good manager, I'm not so sure.

 

Britt and Fletcher's form: lack of confidence or lack of ability? 

Lack of support from midfield I would say. Although last week I think it was tav was breaking down the left against WBA and instead of getting into the box, Britt ran to the outside of tav, leaving them both on the wing with noone in the box. I think there's a lack of football intelligence there as well.

 

What is our best formation using what we have available? 

4231, karanka style. 

----------------Britt-----------

--Johnson--wing--Fletcher--

-------Howson--mcnair------

Coulson--fry--Ayala--Shotton

--------------GK-------------------

 

Doesn't look a bad team to me!

I'll settle for the ball hitting someone on the *** and going in, any goal will do they all only count one.

First game for me today since WBA away last season.  Not expecting much, 2-0 Fulham.

We need the win, it may be a big boost in confidence if we some how beat Fulham today. But I expect a Fulham win unfortunately just can't see where our goals are going to come from. Boro 0 Fulham 2

Not sure why he's gone back to 4-3-3 hasn't worked at all so far none of the players work in that style. 

Just seems we start putting performances together with the 5 at the back then we bin it off again 🤦🏻‍♂️

Luck and scoring first

Do you genuinely think Woodgate knows what he is doing? 

He either said what the fans wanted to hear or saw things in the players last year that we have never seen. He is probably going to stick with a back 3 now and if he plays the same formation each week we might see some improvement EDIT: shows what I know.

Britt and Fletcher's form: lack of confidence or lack of ability? 

Ability in Fletchers case. I keep hearing there’s a player in there somewhere but f*** me, he is taking time to come out. Britt has scored goals in the past but needs more chances than we can create to get his tally up.

What is our best formation using what we have available? 

I honestly dont know.

Shotton is out due to that injury from last game.. He finished the game though, but that must be, what's keeping him out .. 

Could it be 4-4-2?

    • No one said covid was why we were inconsistent though. Only that covid was a large contributing factor specifically to the Birmingham performance only.
    • Going from £20-£25k a week to £5k is a tremendous hardship. We all tend  to live up to our means. Obviously if 99.9% of us on here were offered £5k a week we’d snap their hands off. But footballers will have investments and mortgages up to the ying yang. Not just for their own homes but for others i.e mums& dads, sisters etc. I remember listening to me Lee Hendry about the shame he had when he couldn’t  afford the mortgage on his mums house when his career bombed. It got him harder than losing his own home to the point he considered suicide.    I hate to see the amount people are earning as a stick to beat them with (not saying that’s what you’re doing RR) but taking a pay cut of 75% would have major implications in their financial well-being to the point it could bankrupt some depending on the investments they made.    It may be hard to have sympathy for these people when we have people using food banks etc but this pandemic is a real leveller for most people and everyone will have real struggles and we should have empathy for all
    • 1. Same formation as the Forest game. Expect Akpom to come in for Britt and Wing for Tav. 2. Not really but with the way this season's fixtures have been affected, it's often vital. 3. Yes. Refs have it in for him but he doesn't help himself sometimes. 4. No, see point number 1. 5. He's getting there! 6. Maiden, clearly 7. We're too inconsistent to make the playoffs. We might sneak in there but I doubt it. 8. Atsu (in my opinion would be a good signing, he's not being given a chance at Newcastle which given their situation is pretty shocking.)

    • I see comments referencing COVID being a disruption to preparation which I don’t deny has, but it is not the whole reason for our inconsistency. We are no different to teams in all divisions, and we are well aware COVID exists, and if we haven’t then we should have mitigation in place.  Inconstancy has been more down to team selection and tactics then COVID and the fact, well apart from the two pack leaders, anyone can virtually beat anyone right now. It doesn’t help when players are not all firing at the same time but there is more of a willingness now to work towards a common goal then previous. Look I do now believe they believe and want to make it happen.   In realty we could easily have at least another 4 to 6 points on the board and equally have the same less points so overall we are doing fairly well. OK watching us play is not for the faint hearted but that’s may be the passion in us wanting more. Listen I would rather have a win then 3 boring daws sitting on our goal line.  I did not expect to be where we are and will gladly be content if we remain there about and possibly sneak a play off spot.
