    Great cause. Shame it won't make any money out of this board membership though, as I'm with JoeH! I'll chip in a fiver though too at the end of the season if Boro finish above us. In return, can you agree likewise for Alzheimer's Society? No worries if not as I realise it's likely to get expensive for you!! 😉

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    If Dack truly is a PL player in waiting, then he ought to be able to adapt his game enough to be capable of having an impact in a 433 provided he's given the right role in it. I agree with the principle that as a club, we should be playing a system that suits the majority of the squad, especially if the club has designs to cash in Dack's chips in the next 12 months.

    None of the promoted teams fates will be decided by how they do against the like of Liverpool, Arsenal or Leicester. They will stay up or not via the results they get against each other & the likes of Aston Villa, Newcastle, West Ham, Burnley etc. Win more of them than they lose, and any of the 3 promoted teams have realistic prospects of survival.

    Calm down everyone, these were the bookies' odds from last season; there's not a huge amount they got right there....

    Bournemouth away

    Feeling bizarrely positive about today, mainly from the point of view that I don't think we've anything to lose. We're away at a team relegated from the PL (albeit in transition themselves), with us having a definite weaker back 4 than last season + a completely unknown keeper, I think that's preferable to Wycombe at home, for example. That said, there are stats to suggest that a Nyambe / Lenihan / Williams / Bell backline can perform well; let's hope they've worked hard this week in training & formed a good understanding with Kaminski. And that they defend better than West Ham did! Offensively I'm confident we have enough to trouble any defence, and sufficient depth to make changes tactical if required. With Gallagher injured we're just missing a big man up front, but he's no DG so maybe not such a bug miss. Could be an end to end thriller! Hoping for the win, won't moan too much at a defeat, a draw I think most feasible. Let's go! COYB!!

    Sorry to hear that rigger, I hope you are able to find something soon. There are plenty of businesses recruiting for whom this virus has turned into an opportunity, perhaps you can get fixed up with one of them. Fingers crossed anyhow. In the meantime, at least you have this board to read to keep your spirits up...
