This is quite funny. Setanta Sports asked me to go on tonight to do the punditry on the Middlesbrough game tonight. They just called to say that unfortunately they are having to stand me down as they can’t find a Middlesbrough fan to go on with me. LOL.
Anyway, I hope we have a good contingent going up there to cheer the boys on. I am sure they will be totally up for it. I have a feeling that Zola may make a few changes today. One forced changed will be to replace James Collins, so I imagine Tomkins will retain his place and that Lucas Neill will replace Spector at right back. I wouldn’t be surprised if Di Michele was replaced by Sears or Savio, either. Radoslav Kovacs is also tipped to make his debut as a replacement for Mark Noble in midfield. Noble is suspended for the Man City game and there are rumours that he took a knock against Bolton on Saturday.
