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 🙂

I would like to see us spank Sunderland at the Riverside!

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.

    • I'm not talking about giving him credit over the long term. I'm saying that game was perhaps the best we've played this season and it was really good. That doesn't happen thanks to luck. West Brom didn't just let us win, we won the tactical battle by being set up tactically in favour of winning the game away at the league leaders. You won't even give him that which says your judgement of short-term victories is blinded by the long-term and the long-term is not something I'm disputing. You don't have to give him a resounding pat on the back for a whole season by allowing one match to be considered a genuine success.
    • Which one? Keane or Leo? Hohoho. Safe travels and enjoy the game!
    • Doesn't look like any team is going to leapfrog Leeds as they're all taking turns in bottling it when they get the chance. Tony Mowbray is doing a great job at Blackburn though.
    • I've been trying to find some optimism for this game, but I don't have any. I can't see anything other than a Barnsley win. They are better than us and should have beaten us at the Riverside (we really got lucky there).  3-0 Barnsley.  I think we can get a point off Charlton, but I am really struggling to see other games where we are likely to pick up points. It's worrying. 
    • I am not a believer in praying you may as well ask a milk jug, however which ever god you believe in has clearly shown is not a Boro supporter and seemingly tends to favour the other team when playing against us
