Next 5 games

Recommended Posts

How will the Christmas month, including the new years clash with Preston,  be for Boro?

How many points will we get, you think?

Swansea A 
Stoke H
Huddersfield H
WBA A
PNE A 

Win the 2 home games and avoid hammerings in the 3 away games, maybe nick a point would be a very good outcome, I think.

I'm going to say 4 points. These kind of 5 games predictions rarely plan out like I foresee it. I genuinely can't see us winning more than one game though.

I'll say one home win, a 'shock' away win, a home draw and two away defeats where we don't score and don't look like scoring. Seven points, lower mid-table mediocrity and a growing sense of fatigue among the supporters. But I am increasingly confident we can avoid relegation (this season, at least), since the defence is improving and Coulson/Spence give me hope that we can eventually banish the spectre of Pulisball.

All 3 of those away games are tough. Picking up 2 points from those would be good.

I think we have to look at winning both the home games though. So 8 points would be a great return. I don't see us coming out of that with only losing 1 game, though.

Well...provided we can sustain our current "difficult to beat" mode, I could see the following:

Swansea (A) - Draw

Stoke (H) - Win

Huddersfield (H) - Win

West Brom (A) - Lose

Preston (A) - Draw

So 8 points out of a possible 15. Pretty decent return and it should see us remain lower mid-table. Just comfortably clear of the relegation places anyway.

The two home games are absolutely key to this month. We need to get 6 points out of those imo.

I think we might nick something at Swansea, lose to wba and with Preston it really depends on what preston turns up, but we could nick a point there too.

7 or 8 points for me.

10 points. 

 

Win the next three, lose to WBA, draw against Preston.

 

My each way bet on Boro to win the Champo may still come in

Got to win those home games.  Lose to West Brom, obviously.  The others?  A point from them would be about all I would expect.  So, 7 from 15.

4-5 points.

Draw against Stoke as they are on the up (would be delighted to be proved wrong, though). We desperately need to win against Huddersfield and that's our best chance for a win from this batch of games. Could see us potentially nicking a point at Preston. Can't see us getting anything from Swansea or West Brom.

    • Boro flashback - This day the 29th January 1977 Boro 4 Hereford United 0 Since the 18th January 1972, when the mighty Boro beat Man City in the 3rd round of the FAC, the visit of Hereford United to Ayresome Park was to be my 11th home & away Boro FAC match Hereford were welcomed to Ayresome Park, without the famous Ricky George & George Radford, both who will forever go down in FAC history for their 2 goals which brought hundreds of onrushing parkers on to the pitch when, as a non league team, knocking 1st division Newcastle out of the FAC  Now Hereford, who in 5 seasons since  joining the football league are in the 2nd division, came to the Boro hoping for the fairytale to continue But...............                                              It was never going to be the case, I can still remember from my position dead centre of the holgate as Graeme Souness measured up to smash a thirty yarder in to the east end goal, I started to shout, don't shoot from there, gooooooaaaaaaalllllll And from then it was Davey Armstrong with a couple, including a penalty & Alan Willey with his1st FAC goal, the Boro cruised to the 5th round  Hereford finished bottom of the 2nd division that season  Big Jacks inaugural FAC Boro home match  Pat Cuff John Craggs  Terry Cooper  Graeme Souness  Stuey Boam  Willie Maddren  Tony McAndrew  David Mills  Peter Brine  Alf Wood  Davey Armstrong  Sub - Alan Willey replacing Alf Wood 
    • Well done for minding your p's and q's there. Something that was called while the lady of the public house walked through. Meant mind your pints and quarts. 
    • the origins of phrases sometimes have very strange explanations.......I always assumed that "taking the mick" was something to do with Ireland, but apparently Cockney rhyming slang...the one that always makes me smile is "he couldn't hit a cow's **** with a banjo"... why would anyone want to?   
    • 3 days until deadline day and this is what is being posted 😂
    • Yep. Our cushion was 10pts after the last game week. We are now a point worse as far as that is concerned after this game week. Luton winning not a huge issue but Wigan winning was a blow. Had they not scored 93rd min winner our cushion would have been 11pts
