Boro v Charlton (A) 1-0 (McNair)

Recommended Posts

Glad he’s not gone for a load of changes again. We’ve needed a settled team for a while. Agree with others that Saville would be my choice alongside Clayton instead of McNair, otherwise happy enough with that team. Brave call dropping Pears. If Stojanovic makes any mistakes or the defence don’t have confidence in him, Woodgate will be slated for that decision. But I think (hope!) its the right one!

Just to give everyone a fair warning:

 

Watched Stojanovic for the u23s. He didn't do anything wrong but ventured outside if the penalty area on more than one occasion!

 

Try not to have a heart attack if he goes on a wander! 🤣

Could be another source of goals for us then 👍

If anyone's listening to the audio through the Boro site, has the stream showed up for you yet? Mine is just a big black rectangle...

Same here. Useless buggers

Looking at the team it looks like a scrappy game is expected . Nice to finally see our new keeper selected on the team sheet (Stojanovic) fraid I think Johnson maybe a weak link in defence though,god knows how Woodgate thinks he is good for left back. Then again I stopped trying to read Woodgates teams long long ago.

Gestede well he did score the last game so why not show faith in the guy again.

Would have liked to see Woodgate make a space for Morrison though I know we have Coulson down that left but I would have given Morrison Wings place down that middle.

Here goes UTB lets see the Valley crowd quietened quickly and we get that early lead to fall back on.

It's the defence which worries me, I suppose Charlton are not full strength though. 

Its the midfield that worries me, bad habit of going missing for long periods of the game which puts the defense under long spells of pressure.

It's the manager, the defence, the midfield, the attack, the chairman, the chief exec and the recruitment team that worries me.  Other than that I'm feeling good about things 👍

Happy that the outfield players are unchanged, a bit of consistency.

We need a win so badly.

I'm not.  If people are not playing well then they shouldn't keep playing simply because they aren't 19-21 years old, which is essentially what we're seeing at this football club over the past few weeks, and it's a load of *** in my opinion.

Give Woody a chance man.

Good start so far. A few chances and some great crosses

We've not had the same team twice in a row in about 4 or 5 months.

It's going to have an impact.

Well Forest was one of our better games this season...which admittedly isn't saying much...but still a damn sight better than some games we've had.

Well Gibson's apparently happy to give him as many chances as he needs...so we should totally trust him. 🤔

Even if some of the players aren't playing well?  Interesting.  We don't actually have the same team today anyway cos we changed GK's but if we were selecting players on form, which we clearly aren't, then there's no way that McNair is in the side today as he's been really poor for a good few weeks now.

    • Great news OMG it will be good to keep the PL going it's a great feature and good fun. MM you underplay you're efforts, fantastic job for the last few seasons, I'm sure on behalf of the forum a big thank you for all your hard work and frequent updates. I hope you continue to take part.  
    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
