Team News / Injury Update:

Manager - A lot is being said that Woody is playing out his last few days as Middlesbrough manager. Could a not too horrendous display against Leeds and a win against Forest actually salvage his job - Majority of fans hope not! Crowd watch on the West Stand for any noticeable 'defensive' figures.  

Tav - Outcry to put Tavernier back into the starting team from fans following the last 3 games didn't amount too much against Leeds, as he didn't put in the best of displays on the night - A subject up for debate

Friend - George looks injured following the Leeds game, a player we certainly respect but believe he shouldn't be getting a start so probably for the best. 

Fletcher - Another player who will now likely be injured for this fixture. This will see a few changes hopefully for the better against Forest. 

Roberts Update - Looking like end of March for his return which can't come soon enough

Ayala - Returning soon with us expected to see him probably for the next vital Boro home game against Swansea on 14th March.

A detailed opening post on the fans forum - http://www.forestforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=48611 

Questions:

1)  Prediction?

2) Do you see a draw as any point is good at the minute, or a win a must due to the current standings

3) Expecting Britt to start, can he actually have a decent game for once against his former team?

4)  Putting aside our circumstance, if Leeds & Forest are promoted, will you actually be more or less interested in PL next season? I.e. watching occasions with these teams rather than teams we are less inclined about such as Watford, Bournemouth, Southampton etc. (Hope that makes sense)

"Back Stronger"  😉

Just watched Woodgate pre match interview for this game and my word it's totally delusion. No other club owner in England would be tolerating this why if Gibson claims he is the best chairman in England allowing it to happen. If we are relagated it's as much of Gibson fault as Woodgate as he has given a guy the job who has no clue how to be a football manager.

Friend is a liability now, great servant, but no new contract, let's be professional and not simply offer one for 'old times sake'

Let's get back to playing the young lads it can't be any worse, it's gone horribly wrong since the so called experienced players have come back. 

Does Woodhead have the strength to play these lads again?

I think not

Who do you think is missing?

The only notable absences that aren't injury related are Spence and McNair. Both were poor in their last few games and Howson was one of the few players to perform well yesterday in Spence's place.

McNair will be back in as CB on Monday.

You think Howson did well? He got skinned a few times aswell as being caught out of position. Personally I think Howson has been poor for ages now.

    • (Apologies to Erimus for referencing matches he's previously referred to - we haven't played on 7 August very often!) August 7th 1971 Boro 4 Hibernian 2  (Yes, Erimus - Hibs again!) Boro looked in fine fettle a week ahead of the 1971/72 season as they swept aside Hibernian more comfortably than the scoreline suggests. New signings Stuart Boam and Nobby Stiles appeared to be settling in well. Boam bought more presence to the defence, albeit looking hesitant at times, while Stiles used his experience to control the game from the middle of the park before coming off at half time. He said that he had done so partly to give someone else a run out and partly to have a look at the team from a trainer's perspective and that having done so he had a feeling that it wouldn't be too long before he was playing at Old Trafford again. As it turned out, he was right, but only because Boro drew Manchester United in the FA Cup later in the season. Against Hibs, Boro were 4-0 up by the interval as Hibs' young goalkeeper, who was only playing because their new first choice keeper's international clearance papers hadn't arrived, was regularly left stranded by his statuesque defence. John Hickton helped himself to a hat trick and Joe Laidlaw chipped in with another. Hickton got the first after just two minutes with a glancing header from a free kick from wide on the left. It was 2-0 after five minutes after a goalmouth mix up allowed Laidlaw to score off the post. Laidlaw turned provider after 20 minutes, crossing from the right for Hickton to head home, and Big John completed his hat trick on 35 minutes with another simple header. Boro relaxed in the second half, allowing Hibs to make the score more respectable with two quick headed goals of their own. The first came from Joe Baker after 52 minutes, with second half substitute Hazel adding the second on 58 minutes. All in all though, a good performance by Boro. They now had a midweek friendly with Benfica to look forward to (which famously brought back together Stiles and Eusebio) and then it was all set for the opening league fixture at Portsmouth. (This is Boro we're talking about - you know what happened next).   In the news - 2800 shipyard workers at Swan Hunter voted by just 45 votes to remain on strike after the latest pay offer fell 25p a week below their demands, two brothers were rescued off the North Sea coast after cutting the roof off their van and paddling out to sea on it (yes, really), the crew of Apollo 15 splashed down safely in the Pacific and three soldiers were shot during rioting in Belfast. Top of the charts - Get it On by T Rex.
    • No my friend you have voluteered and your name is on the list, I appreciated the efforts made last time out
