Brilliant! I'm not sure what he is basing that on! Perhaps Middlesbrough losing 3-0 at Birmingham. Maybe our illustrious owner is figuring that Boro are so shit than even Allardyce's team could beat them. Maybe.
But if we are honest, this is more an act of faith than an expression of judgement. We have struggled to beat teams in the bottom half of the table with lousy defensive records, so form lines suggest that we are going to find it difficult to overcome teams with much better records.
Allardyce is pleased with the performance on Saturday so that suggests more of the same. No surprise there then! I expect they have been practising hoof ball all day! Any chance of 4-4-2? No chance, Nolan can't play 4-4-2 and with Tomkins injured, we don't have a holding midfielder.
So will it be Cole or Maynard up front? Does it matter? Dear God, I could line up at the back for Boro without too many problems. Even if, by accident, the ball reaches our lone striker, it's odds on he won't score anyway!
So would somebody please Twatter Gold and ask him how he thinks we will win exactly? His answer could be very amusing!
