FA Cup 3rd round draw Spurs Home

Recommended Posts

Boro are ball number 26 in tonight's 3rd round draw for this seasons FA Cup.

Will this be a distraction to the importance of the season?

Who are you hoping to get be it home or away from The Riverside?

Will we get dumped early doors?

Are we now afforded the title of "giant killers" should we get a lower league team?

Do you really care because we will never win it this season and that you just want it over and done with?

Can we go on a run and bring in much needed finances to the club?

For me let's get a PL team at home for a change

I'm crying out for a home draw DS because I will be over from the 3rd - 6th Jan for a function so would love to be able to pick up a Boro game while I'm there. If not a home draw at least somewhere reasonably local enough so I can go to the game. UTB

I think a decent Premier League team at home is probably the best thing to hope for. A bit of extra revenue that's a 'free hit'. I think we could do without the added pressure of having to beat a lower league opposition and potentially crashing out early as it will only make feelings/confidence worse.

I saw you'd quoted me and it took me about 10 milliseconds to figure out what you'd put as I went back over my own comment in my head. 😂

Yeah, it was a bit of an easy one that in all honesty.  It's like the sort of chance that Assombalonga and Fletcher would have put just 15 feet over the bar 🙂

We'd probably still manage to lose!

 

 

(yes I know that doesn't make sense...but then this season hasn't made a lot of sense so far)

Given that league survival has to be our #1 priority, very much so

Who are you hoping to get be it home or away from The Riverside?

As others have said, a home tie against one of the big PL teams would be nice

Will we get dumped early doors?

Yes, if the above happens

Are we now afforded the title of "giant killers" should we get a lower league team?

Haha! Yes.

Do you really care because we will never win it this season and that you just want it over and done with?

A cup run, while always nice, is very much a secondary priority. More games really doesn't help with our already thin squad and lengthy injury list.

Can we go on a run and bring in much needed finances to the club?

I really don't see it unless we get drawn against lower league clubs.

As usual, I want Newcastle.

But I do think I'd sooner a hard draw this year as anything below the Premier League is going to be a banana skin that will just depress fans.

    • Mate, Brooks did sod all down the right and it was very little to do with Johnson. He wasn't even more disciplined, he got forward and had plenty more opportunities to cross than Spence did. And it either didn't beat the first man or it was blazed beyond the players or over the bar on one or two occasions too. There was a free kick we took quickly whilst a Bournemouth player complained about the foul, Johnson was entirely free, had a good 10-15 yards to take his time and pick the players out. He put it behind the goal, he didn't even get it into the box. It was abysmal. When it comes to Spence, there's clearly work to do. But to think Johnson is providing any danger to opposition teams right now is baffling to me. He's made one decent cross so far this season, against Shrewsbury for Fletcher.
    • We were and would still be keen but man City want to offload for £3.5million and have knocked back numerous loan offers from us and elsewhere for him. Later, he's still there in the window there is a chance that he could re-sign but it's extremely slim.
    • That's fine I haven't taken it as a dig. Of course stats can be misleading. But I think in the right context (which is important) they can certainly help either shape an opinion or backup what you have seen firsthand. Personally you need a balance of visually seeing things within a game of football, and also the statistics to back that up or disprove, if you catch my drift. Didn't Spence have Danjuma to cover in the Bournemouth game? (who I think is also a very good player, much like Brooks). I wasn't able to see the Bournemouth game in full, so I cannot pass much judgement on Spence/Johnson. I did watch the Watford game and personally they were both pretty average in that game. In my opinion if we went to a back 4, I think Dijksteel could slot into the right back position fairly comfortably. But I think we'd need a more "solid" left back.
    • So do you know if we are actively after roberts? Just that warnock made out he wasnt
