QPR V Middlesbrough

Sky Bet Championship

Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium

Saturday 9th November, KO 15:00

here we go mood GIF

Middlesbrough travel to QPR on the back of a horrendous winless run which has seen us drop into the bottom three with no real sense of where our next point, let alone three points will come from. QPR sit in 9th but they've lost their last two games so could be there for the taking if Jonathan Woodgate can somehow manage to convince our players that scoring goals is both cool and good.

Hey lads, it's a goal! Remember them?

Our opposition are already talking about us here.

Talking points:

Score Prediction?

Formation and lineup?

Will Britt Assombalonga score another goal this year?

Will we see Rudy Gestede in a Boro shirt ever again?

Brexit or Biscuits?

It's hyperbolic I know, but I genuinely don't know when I'll next see us score a goal. I absolutely wouldn't be surprised if we didn't score again we're that bad.

I feel more confident about us scoring than under Pulis. Britt is in the team and hasn't just forgot how to score and hell, he managed to grab a few even under Pulis so I'd say he's odds on to score at some point. Whether that's in the context of us earning points is another question.

I'd say the odds of seeing Gestede again are relatively high assuming he keeps overcoming injuries. Purely because there's little chance of any forward really stamping their authority on the position right now.

Biscuits every time. Brexit can get in the *** sea.

I'll go for 1-0 Assombalonga, it's got to pay off as a prediction eventually.

I'm not one for the tired cliche of ex-players coming back to haunt us, but I genuinely believe Hugill will be a menace. He was hounded whilst here at his boyhood club, and I expect he'll want to ram his revenge down other Boro fan's throats.

I will be pleasantly surprised if we get a point. Let’s face facts anyone who says different is so, tongue in cheek.

Score I'm going 1 nil to QPR 

Formation will be the same as previous. 352/541 

Pears, Ayala, fry, McNair, dijksteel, couslen, howson, Clayton, wing, tavernier, Britt.

Will Britt score again this year? I'd hope yes, but going on current form probably not.

 

Will gestede play off us again? i hope not.

 

Brexit or biscuits? 

Depends on the deal/biscuits

I'll go 2-0 QPR, who knows we might even manage to get more than 1 shot on target, not holding my breath though, but hell its a transitional period so we're led to believe. so we must be patient or some BS like that.

Same team, but I would have Tav as Attacking midfielder and Burrell and Britt up top

                     Britt

       Johnson  Wing.    Tav

             Clayton. McNair

  Coulson   Fry.  Ayala.   Dijksteel

                      Pears

Will Britt score again?

His confidence is shot needs a rest to go on a striker rehabilitation camp but we have no one else so he's lumbered up front

Will Gestede play again?

If he gets back fit he'll be used as honestly hes a option 

Tough game though as QPR ground is tight but I'll actually be over the moon if we manage to score

Has Clayton been injured? I can’t even remember the last time he played?

Hugill, Eze and Wells will absolutely run us ragged 

3-1 QPR, Hugill and Wells x2

Love an optimistic post, you have at least got Boro scoring, even in defeat something to look forward to!

    • I agree that wingbacks with what we have at our disposal IS our best hope, however all that will get us is midtable/survival at best. I see where CT is coming from in that it’s a pretty lame excuse not to try and better the team, it CANT be that hard to get a better LB than bola and a failed winger. I still feel we could do well but we are heavily reliant on Tav, Browne and Howson to provide assists and goals from midfield. Akpom I think will improve things as he will be better at linking midfield to attack than fletcher and also allow Britt to sit higher up.    That said I think there will be a lot of games where we struggle to create anything. Essentially we have less width in the team than even pulis had.
    • Have you just noticed? there's been no rumours all summer
    • Bielsa has played 2 defensively minded midfielders alongside a dominant central defender in a back three.  Some believe that the back three needs to contain two highly mobile defenders either side of a dominant in the air, yet capable of bringing the ball out type of defender... which highlights to me that it doesn't matter about formations most of the time, we just need good players. Which kind of goes back to what Robson used to say about Liverpool, but that was decades ago, so does it still apply, do good players win matches/leagues, or good managers/systems?
    • I’d like to do it again. And my personal recommendation world be Sam Morsy 
    • Quite a few pages of arguments about formations, and the relative merits of fullbacks, wingbacks and wingers though.
