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?

    • I fully expect that we will be back in full lockdown by mid January; at least in the North and Midlands (London and the South might get spared as putting them into another lockdown would be politically more damaging for the government in the longer-term due to voting patterns).  Allowing the Christmas window and then locking us down again after enables the government to be seen to be doing something about the virus and all the 'irresponsible' people in the North, and therefore keeps their core Southern voters happy.  I will admit that I have broken the current lockdown, but I have done so in a responsible way.  I live on my own and have no remaining family, so I do not have significant contact with people (not of the sort that would promote virus spread).  I have one friend who I saw a few times in the Summer, and there was one occasion we met up with a couple of other people outside at the picnic tables at the Dales Centre.  Other than that, I have not seen anyone properly since early March.  I am in the very vulnerable group (on medical grounds, not age) and was shielding until August.  Being trapped inside and never seeing anyone has been really bad for my mental health to the point where I have sometimes felt like I would be better off dead.  I have been doing 'non essential' trips out because I cannot cope with being shut in any more.  I have been driving to places on my own and not been in close contact with anyone other than passing on footpaths (on places like Hedleyhope and Waskerley) or on my weekly Greggs trip.  There are days when I have gone for a drive simply to get out of the house.  I need to go beyond my village to not feel shut in and sub-human.  I am not in a social bubble because most people are in bubbles with their parents or children and the the small number who aren't had formed themselves into friendship pair bubbles while I was still shielding.   The whole system assumes that everyone has a partner or family.
    • Do Sheffield United want Britt think he'd get along well with their strike force 🤪 
    • Yeah the fatigue thing cant be used as a mitigating factor as every team in the league is dealing with the same schedule, some with a couple of extra cup games earlier in the season and some with more than just 2 international players. Yes we have a smaller squad than some but we also have players in the squad who aren't getting minutes which is the managers decision. Fatigue management is just another facet of management and if we start to lose games because of it that's on the management team.
    • I think some of the players today looked fatigued, in my opinion. NW not picking certain players, not making substitutions earlier or even using all 5 allowed substitutions (recently), will further fatigue certain players as they will have to continue to play on. Howson, McNair, Dijksteel, Saville and Tav have all played over 1100 minutes so far this season. Only Brentford have the same amount of outfield players (5) as us, to have played over 1100 minutes. So although we both agree we are in the same predicament as every other team, our circumstances in terms of player numbers are certainly different. Regarding your other points they are well made, but I'm not sure why you have made them when the original discussion was regarding player fitness and how I thought it played a small part in today's performance.
