Mowbray certain to play our new signing.

You will see how influential he is from the number of times Rovers pass the ball to nobody in particular or straight out of play...

Walton 

Nyambe, Lenihan, Tosin, Bell

Travis, Davenport

Buckley, Holtby, Rankin Costello

Armstrong

 

Subs- Hilton, Johnson, Gallagher, Downing, Williams.

Johnson and Gallagher to come on in the last 15 mins if we are ahead, to protect against any long ball onslaught.

I think you could be right about him taking his chance to shoehorn Benno in JRs role, which really would be a disgrace.  I'd prefer to change the system than play him.

I’ll wait to see if Benno starts or not before shelling out the $7 for the game tomorrow.

I’ve not seen much of Thompson tbh. Is he going to be good enough??

Expecting nothing but a complete reverse of form, based on the chaotic / idiotic / demoralizing / weird shennanigans in the no-transfer window. That debacle has been unsettling enough for those of us on the outside of the club to cause meltdowns and angst on a Brexitstential level, so goodness knows what the effect will have been on the lads in blue n white....

Boro buoyed by incoming signings and home advantage to do a number on us. That number, for me, is a scoreline of 3-0 to Boro.

We're so sh!t it's unbelievable!

I think we have this one, all our players wilm be up for it as backed by TM as the only players he need to get into the play offs, I watch the u23 at leyland alot and our young boys are really good so I back the youth to come through when needed add to that the older heads of johnson and downing with the wizard travis and the sight of Holtby to pass to the angel of the north arma and I can see us doing well, IF we had signed anyone it would be weeks before they played anyway so with that COYB, barmyarmy, let's do it for jack.

Let’s hope the failure to sign anyone is the trigger for the appearance of our under 23 players. Real ale in the Issac Wilson  and the Resolution coupled with a 2 v1 win for the mighty blues.COYB

In fact today in honour of our smoggie leader every pub I go in today I’m going to ask the price of a pint and when they say £3 .I’m going to say those are ridiculous numbers what about a quid I’m not being held to ransome. Let’s see how many pints I get

See what you just did there is confuse RRP and sale price with the world of football agents where ok players are sold at high prices and I think TM has learned from the BB purchase

No idea what to expect beyond lousy to non-existent TV coverage. Anything between getting thrashed to handing out the thrashing.

Got a feeling Travis will be red carded today.

Do you not have access to IPTV Philip? All matches are on there.

 

Hoping for a win, Boro aren't all that but it's blustery so I have a feeling our shakey defence will act up today - so I am worried.

Gallagher to definitely score at some point and an outside chance of Chapman coming off the bench to help snatch a point or rag a win.

I have to say I haven't got a good feeling about this. Equally as worrying is the potential of injury to one of several key players which could see our season capitulate in a mirror image of last February.

Yeah, like that would ever happen in our world where Tony and Tesco know best.

I think we'll win this one. Boro no great shakes at home and we appear to have turned the tide. Again. Saying that this could be the start of a 'Mowbray no win in 10' kind of run. Put simply I've no idea, much like Mowbray with his team selection.

Then you can keep your powder dry for the next game where there will be better opportunities to get a pint. Panic then spend £12 on 2 pints you neither like nor want.

I fancy us for a win today, Armstrong and Gally to score.

This division is so hard to predict and the fact that we are top of the league over the last 12 games shows that no team is consistent.

I think TM will go with same back 4, midfield Holtby, Travis, Johnson, Downing, up front Gally and Armstrong.

Come on you blue boys.

Let's hope they've sorted out what caused the row amongst the players yesterday. I'd take a draw now but to be honest my interest is waning at the moment. If the people in charge aren't that bothered why should we be ?

Players row, haven't seen anything about that, could you expand a little Tyrone?
