Boro v Blackburn Rovers 1-1 (Coulson)

Recommended Posts

BORO v BLACKBURN ROVERS!
image.thumb.png.e0ff286e32f929543f55ed83b155b4c2.png


So .. Are you ready for a song? 

I'll do that next time 😛 

Blackburn Rovers visit the Riverside this Saturday at 3.00 PM. 

The visitors are without Bradley Dack but will probably start with Danny Graham and Stewart Downing.. 2 ex Boro boys. 

Roberts will for sure be out, which is a shame, cause he has really shown glimpses of some magic... attacking football  .. something we didn't see much last season. 

The visitors come with a few good results, a win over QPR and a 5-0 hammering where Sheffield Wednesday lost at home. 

Questions:

Team and formation?

Will we see any new players or/and will anyone leave before Friday @ 11.00 PM?

Result?

Are you going? 

Has anyone seen Ben Gibson today?

Have you tried the new dark mode?

-------------------Pears--------------------

---------Howson-McNair-Fry---------

Spence-------------------------Coulson

---------Wing---Saville---Tav-----------

-----------Fletcher--Nmecha-----------

 

Reckon we will see one defender in, but he won't be included in the squad.

We will win this one 2-1. Fletcher and Nmecha.

Will be watching from at home.

I think I saw Gibsons car. May have had one of his rumoured medicals at my local club. He like those medicals.

Not tried the dark mode yet.

I think that's the right 11, BD!

If Fry is out then Wood instead.

Britt will come of the bench in 2nd half around 71st minute.

I wonder whether Dejan might get a game sometime soon just to see how he does - we don't have any cup games to let him play in and he can only do so much in training.

No idea...I don't keep up with the rumour mill. Its less stressful / disappointing just to see the state of play the day after.


Result?

I have a bad feeling about this one, given we are up against not only Mogga, but also 2 ex-players. Its probably worth having a punt on either Granny Graham or Stewie Downing scoring against us...or both!

I don't see us keeping a clean sheet, so the best we can hope for is a draw...especially given our defensive crisis. Heart says we can sneak a 1-1, but my head says Blackburn will be heading back to Lancashire with all 3 points. Prediction: Boro 1 - 2 Blackburn.


Are you going? 

Am I 'eck as like! It'd be a long trek to either Boro or Blackburn from where I live (down south...not to be confused with DS!).


Has anyone seen Ben Gibson today?

Rumour has it he was spotted in the Hartlepool branch of Marks & Spencer, the other day.


Have you tried the new dark mode? 

Been using it for a while now. Got switched over by the Admin after posting on his thread about it. Love it...apart from the fact you can't use coloured text in this mode.

 

The Blackburn thread makes interesting reading. Somewhat confident of a result, but not hugely so. Not overly enamoured of Mogga either apparently:

"i remember mowbray as a player,fantastic centre back,hard as nails and 1000% commited,he`s not my idea of a good manager though".

Nice job SmogDane 👍🏻

I'd go with the same as BoroDane apart from I'd go with big Ass up front, however Fletcher and Nmecha rhymes so I won't.

I think so, yeah.

2-0, I think we'll send them back over the Pennines with a smack bottom.

I'll be there.

He's just been round mine for a cup of tea, taking selfies dunking his jammy dodgers and posting them on instas.

No, but it sounds exciting! Perhaps I'll try it tonight when I come in from work and my wife's asleep.

Good effort SD but I had to do my usual edit (just for you)

The game hard one to call because they have done very well of late and scoring for fun.

Downing will love to have a good away win and to score on top.

We need a win, results by others of late have reduced the gap points wise.

Probably a score draw but as mentioned we really do need the win

Back to the real business, we know what we have and the players Woodgate can use in the attempt to give the club some creditability at the seasons end.

So with a real shout Come On Boro!

Time for a win

Game day.
Blackburn are second in the form table for away games and Boro are second for home games. So all things been equal this had draw written all over it. 
But with the 10 days rest I’m expecting a rejuvenated Boro to come out of the blocks. And going for a 2-1 win with Stewy scoring for them

It's windy as flip today so I'll revise my prediction to 2-0 and the keepers kicking the ball out of touch a lot more often than normal!

    • To be fair, all of the players who we have been linked with so far make sense. I don’t think we’ll see many mercenaries come to Boro for a pay day, which I’m pleased about.    Touch wood; all the signs seem positive so far in terms of who we’ve been linked with 
    • Ashley Fletcher. The fact he’s overcome so much pressure and “down moments” with us, yet he has still come out stronger on the other side is really admirable. I think that’s a very under rated quality for a footballer to have. I bloody love it seeing him play with confidence and his hard work paying off. Go on LAD!
    • Fletcher.  I honestly think he is our best striker now.  He had a difficult start here, with fans on his back because of his price tag, but has persevered and developed despite all the inadequacies in our coaching set up.  I really like how he and Tav link up.  I am looking forward to seeing how he develops under a manager who knows how to coach players and inspire confidence in them.  
    • To be honest I find it difficult to pick a favourite out as we are at a stage where we have no consistently outstanding players though many are very capable in flashes...I like Johnson going forwards but he terrifies me near our penalty area...Fletch is improving all the time and with a partner that would pass to him, he could improve a lot more...Tav is beginning to show his potential ...but agree with Blanco, Saville very underrated and reminds me a lot of Mustoe...so probably one of those three depending on the game...."deep rums".?..I'll have one of those 
    • Friend also for sentimental reasons. I have a soft spot for Dijksteel  for reasons unbeknown to even myself and want him to do well. I really liked Ayala as I felt much more confident in our defence when he was a part of it but the way he departed left a bad taste. My favourite player growing up, despite my username, was actually Gianluca Festa. I like players who play in a way which shows that they care about this club as much as we fans do. Festa did that. There been more since him, George being one of them. His legs have gone but I know he gives a sh*t about this club just as much as the rest of us do.
