Boro v Nottingham Forest 2-2 (Gestede, Wing)

Recommended Posts

My team for forest (4-2-3-1)

                               Pears

Spence   Moukoudi   Shotton    Johnson

                 Clayton        Howson                
 
Tavernier         Morrison            Coulson

                         Fletch/Britt

Like the idea of having Clayton sitting deep and howson box to box, think we look more solid with Clayts in front of the back 4.

No great loss the mans finished, garbage against Leeds.

It’s a loss in the sense that now Coulson will probably go back to Lb. 

That essentially gets rid of any pace and attacking threat from the forwards.

Nice thread FB! Well done for managing to stay at least somewhat optimistic in the face of overwhelming odds.

 

View from the other side:

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

Well the poster who started the thread is a bit of an insulting ***. The rest seem to be a bit more sympathetic...even somehow seeing us as a potential banana skin. 😂

 

Questions

1)  Prediction?

Similar to the Leeds game, I'm thinking. Forest will probably be below their best, but still considerably better than us. Their recent form has been a bit iffy, so it'll be a narrow win for them:

Boro 0 - 1 Forest

 

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

Survival-wise, only wins are going to really help us. But a point might help restore some morale & confidence.

 

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

I wouldn't even have Britt on the bench, precisely because this is Forest. But if he does start, I fully expect him to be completely anonymous and subbed after 60 minutes or so.

 

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)

My interest in the PL will remain exactly the same. Been following Spurs, Liverpool and Man Utd's results and catching highlights on MOTD. Won't change much, unless the title race is more interesting next season.

Robbie Keane looks slightly worried there like he's not entirely sure what's happening.

Well I see your point with regards to Coulson, but Friend looked a liability at LB ,got caught out time and time again, I think Friend playing would do us more harm than good, he was shocking against Leeds..

I wouldn't worry about it, he'll probably drop Coulson to the bench anyway.

Forest can't break down teams who sit back and let Forest attack.

It's happened to them so many times this season and that's how we should aim to play, on the counter attack.

Maybe we'll somehow fluke a draw or a win cause Forest have been a bit of a charity to *** teams this season.

But let's be honest, we've got Woodgate in charge so it'll most likely be a 1-0 loss.

Yeah I probably agree with you there. 
Wouldn’t be surprised if he went back to 5 at the back and had Coulson as wing back. That way we could still get his threat going forward.

2-0 to The Boro! The climb up the league starts tomorrow. 

Well it is "leap day" but not for us as we play Monday!

However a point or Wigan and a win for Barnsley might see them leap up a bit.

Do so hope WBA win today the thought of seeing us in the bottom 3 fills me with dread

Woodgate was going on a scouting trip today to watch a player, but the trip has been cancelled as the player is not playing today.  Link.

Any idea who the player is?

Well that bodes well another player who is either naff or injury prone:classic_huh:

Games of significant interest for all Boro fans in the hope of survival today as follows:

Hull V Leeds (sadly want an away win)

WBA V Wigan (home win please)

Luton V Stoke (prefer a draw but not a Stoke win)

Huddersfield V Charlton (prefer a win here for either team a draw means one point further ahead from Boro for both)

Reading V Barnsley (home win please or at worst a draw)

My traditional game of FIFA using the teams I think will be put out had us drawing 0-0, with Assombalonga missing 3 absolute sitters and Clayton missing another.

I can see that happening in real life too.

    • Has been groups of teenagers up and down the banks of the Tees on a daily basis, picnicking and drinking. Police have been down on more than one occasion and asked them to disperse bit next day it is the exact same thing. The two people walking the dog thing though, if they're from the same household it is allowed isnt it? They may just want to exercise together
    • As I type this there's a caravan in a layby on the A689 fully set up with a TV aerial sticking out the top, running eletricity off a portable generator.  It's a road that police patrol often, so I wonder how on earth it's still there. It's been there for nearly a week now.
    • One group of people who are never welcome anywhere will need special attention and that is the actions of travellers, where will they be allowed to stay because as I see it all of the government orders have to apply to them also. Whilst local authorities may act quickly to remove them someone will need to make a choice of allowing them to settle (and all issues which will follow) or simply move them on causing further interaction across the country. 
    • Oh and to *** me off even further, I was stopped on my way to work by police on the A19. Good job I had my letter with me, although the hi-viz vest I always wear should have been enough of a clue.
    • Saying and doing might be a very hard thing to do, we do not know if the Police are at full force and cuts in overall man power over the years will leave it impossible for said action. There will be shows of strength and action from time to time concentrating on certain areas and enforcement but that again will be a drain on recourses unless the Army assist. Plus each and every officer is at risk of being exposed more regularly and transmitting to their own families leading to more isolation and reduction of active available man power. You may see the odd "panda" car driving around interacting with MOP but they will deal more with drivers rather than chasing a group of youngsters over a field. Sadly parents will not "police" their own family nor will they be able to trust that their off spring will follow the limits of going outside. We will probably see more drones than police officers
