Boro v Tottenham (FA Cup) 1-1 (Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

No longer a game to dread as I think we will give a good showing of ourselves.

Giant killings happen all the time especially early rounds of the cup so why not?

Teddy is looking forward to the game no matter what and I think I am the same!

No shame to lose this one, and I think there's easily enough goodwill built up now for the result to not impact Woodgate's standings with the fans.

Saying that, Tottenham are in bad form and Kane is injured. You never know.

I wonder what kind of side we'll put out. 

Some of the 1st team must need a rest after a busy period but I imagine they will all be desperate to play in a fixture like this!

I think it’ll be a full first team pretty much. I imagine Woody will see this as kind of a reward for the first team to play such a good team

I can't see us winning this. A draw would be good for the coffers but I am expecting a defeat. I just think they will have too much for us. (As they should).
I will be ok with loosing as long as we put up a fight. I recon even a defeat but a close game will not affect the current mood and could even boost the team's confidence further.

I can actually see us sneaking a win here. I believe that Kane is out, and can see Jose resting a few. Spurs are pretty poor at the back at the moment too.

Could be a good game as we've plugged the defence and be nice to see Roberts if he plays and could be a massive chance for Browne to reinstate himself.

Roberts' interview felt like he was saying he was going straight into the team. Be good to see him on the pitch and how we change to accommodate him. Tough first game to come into!

I’m over for this game so I’m really looking forward to it. Great to see a new signing on his debut if Roberts plays

It did, didn't it? Doesn't surprise me really though, kid needs minutes and we need to rest some people!

Suspect we've made some guarantees on playing time.

Looking forward to this.

 

Got a feeling Son is gonna absolutely destroy us though.

You'd think so, he did last time at the Riverside and he's better since then and we're worse.

As long as we give it a good go!

This should hopefully be good fun. Just attack them with no fear - who cares if we concede a few and go out. Spurs are low on confidence and will have some kids and reserves playing... as well as Son who is world class and one of my favourite players to watch. What a test for young players like Spence if they play!

    • 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
