Boro V Hull City 2-2 (Tavernier, Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

Nice post Sarumite!¬†ūüĎć

 

Will Woodgate stick with the same side from QPR?

I'd expect so, considering it will be another tough game against mid-table opposition. Any changes will likely be forced by injury / fitness. Or focused on shoring up our defence.

- What is the key to Boro taking 3 points from the game?

Some of this would help

- Will Britt Assombalonga now find some confidence in front of goal?

Sadly, I don't expect so. Its gonna be another tough game with chances at a premium. Don't see him getting gifts like the one at QPR.

 

- Is Lewis Wing performing to his potential?

I don't think so...but then neither is anyone else (except Randolph and Ayala). Difficult for an individual to shine when the rest of the team is struggling.

 

Honestly would be happy with a draw from this. Unfortunately I think Hull will be too good for us.

Prediction: Boro 0 - 1 Hull

Expect to see Clayton start for Tavs in the middle which will push Wing out to the left. That will give us somewhat of a threat down that side but vulnerable due to both Lewis and Marvin not being great at their defensive duties. 
My prediction is that we will need to score two to get anything out of this game so hopefully Britt puts his chances away. 
 

Head says 1-1

Heart says 2-1 Boro

From what Woody said in the team news, I'm not sure Friend us fit. If he is, I imagine it will be the same team as they did okay and we don't have many alternatives. 

To get 3 points, we need to score more goals than we concede.

I think Britt unfortunately will freeze at the Riverside. Could do with another away game first to try and get another away goal and some confidence back.

Wing seems to be underperforming. Think he needs some more experienced people around to guide him. I still think he has a lot of potential, but he needs role models around him to learn from and inspire him.

I think we need 4 points from the next 2 games otherwise things are going to look really bleak. 

Stoke have 2 wins out of 2 now under O'Neil and they should have enough good players to get away from the relegation zone.

I have 0 faith in Woodgate to turn this around. Fully expect a 2-0 defeat where we create very little and waste our chances. 

Wouldn't mind being proven wrong though...

I believe a draw is possible but only 2 wins from 16 games does not give me much hope for more. It could be argued in the last game we had shown a bit more ability but the fact was the opposition were weak. If we can start picking up points starting tomorrow, then we may have a chance to move in the right direction but make no mistake, mid table is looking very hard to achieve. If things don’t start happening sooner rather than latter I can see SG swallowing pride and making changes.

Seem to have lost my previous reply , sorry if it turns up as a double post.

we 're now in the bottom 2 & so really need a win, albeit a draw will take us out of the relegation spots, which I suspect might happen.

its hard for woodgate , he's not got many options, but I'd persevere with Tav as he can commit/ pressurise defenders  , & play wing further forward- although it may take a few games to bear any fruit,  luxury we don't really have

Whilst "only needing" one point is sufficient to get us out of the bottom 3 I hope that the players see this as a "must win" game because it is, thankfully others above us are having serious troubles of their own but we are still in deep trouble ourselves.

Nothing less is simply  good enough and only wins breed confidence.

Massive game

Actually had to set an alarm to remind myself the match was today, that's a first.

Come on, Boro, bring back the joy!

    • @Erimus 63¬†I am not sure how from my post you came to conclusion i was in adoration of¬†Gibson. In fact i actually state ‚Äúgibson is not perfect‚ÄĚ. To be fair no owner is. People who are fans of Gibson can point to justifiable reasons why. And¬†people who are not fans of his can also make some justifiable reasons as to why they are not. I can appreciate both sides of argument. However, the point of my post was to simply say ‚Äúthe grass is not always greener on the other side‚ÄĚ. ¬† Do I want to see if the grass is greener? Not really. I see other clubs who were similar in size to us during our PL days and look at where some of them are now and I really dont wish to take the¬†risk. Yes under new ownership,¬†we might end up back in PL but there is also just a good a¬†chance we might end up falling down the leagues and as @Blanco¬†rightly said¬†ultimately not end up existing at all.¬† For that reason I am not actively going to champion Gibson should leave or sell the club. For all his faults I know he genuinely give¬†a sh*t¬†about this club and wont let us follow the journey that unfortunately some of the other clubs our size have in recent years. And that will more than do for me.
    • I don‚Äôt want Gibson to sell the club. However, I do want him to delegate his powers to a Director of Football. Much in the same way that whilst Delia Smith¬†is a great cook, she knows her limitations running a football club in an efficient and effective manner¬†so appointed Stuart Webber to do this. Gibson just rates himself too highly to think that anyone could possibly do this better than him. The Evening Gazette and BBC Tees¬†portray any criticism of Gibson as fans wanting him to sell the club, but it‚Äôs¬†not that at all. I think the vast majority want him to be our owner, just not the key decision maker as he‚Äôs not very good at it.
    • That is absolute BS. There would be no club without Gibson. The stupid vilification of him is what has to stop.
    • This adoration of Gibson has got to stop. The club is going nowhere with him as owner.
