Middlesbrough (A) - Match Thread

Recommended Posts

Big game but they all are from this point onwards! Tough to talk about a game that falls so shortly after a transfer window deadline day, but with hopes of any incomings withering away by the hour, I think we can look ahead to the Boro game now.

Would you change anything in the Starting XI and bench?
Score prediction and goal-scorers?
Are you going to the game?

Some key facts below going into this one, based off of Middlesbrough's home record and our away record only:

Injuries to key players Patrick Roberts, Daniel Ayala and Dael Fry for Boro so a big chance to grab some away points this weekend.

keep the same team,barring rothwell obviously,after tuesday mowbray surely can`t start bennett,he could barely move,who he puts in who could`nt guess,i think we`ll sneak a 0-1 victory in a tight,uninspiring game,got the dreaded mot on saturday so i`ll have to give this one a miss,was looking forward to going as iv`e never been to the riverside before

I would be inclined to go with the same lineup, JRC for Rothwell if unfit. 

However, a part of me thinks we might benefit from moving Downing back to Lb and putting Johnson in the middle for this one. 

Would love another win but feel we could be in for a draw. 2-2, Armstrong and Holtby to score is my bet.

Who replaces Rothwell for you? Downing to the wing or JRC gets a start?

I was feeling a Holtby goal too!

I would take 1-1, but I think we might sneak this 2-1

The replacement for Rothwell will be crucial. We all know what he shouldn't do, but we are away from home, so........

if it was up to me id`e give JRC a start,see what he can do over a full match,however i don`t think he`s been mowbrayed yet,so it`s unlikely he will get the nod,i`ve got a strange feeling that brereton will end up starting in rothwells position,in some f****d up formation,it`s what tony does🙄

I think we'll line up...  

Walton

Nyambe Tosin Lenihan Bell

Travis Downing

Gallagher Holtby Bennett

Armstrong

 

Now Rothwell is out for a month I suspect we'll see Bennett and Johnson getting plenty of game time over the next few weeks with the positions rotating around a bit, so Downing in cm some games, on the left on others etc.
