Although every game is a must win game, with the team dropping points again and United probably taking the advantage, the need to win right now couldn't be greater. Simply put, not winning isn't an option anymore. Boro are a tricky team, although they aren't close to being as good away as they are at home. I would like to see van Persie start this game if he is ready. We aren't in a position where we can rest players, we need the first XI out there.

Can be no excuses now.(well maybe if Gilberto plays for some unknown reason) They have to win this one. If we draw or god forbid lose then we can say for sure that we have slumped.
I think we need a 9 Games, 9 Finals thread. Mad4 might help ;)
oh hell yeah.

Mad4 get started right away.:proud:
If we dont win this one we dont deserve to win the title :rollani:.. I think we will get back to winning ways.
Guys one question - do you know if Van Persie will start this game?
Hmm not sure, I don't think he will.
He'll stick him at Left wing in a five mid if he does or he'll bring him on with 20 to go when we're desperate
Possible starting 11





Bench: Jens, Senderos, RVP, Gilberto and Hoyte
Just one thing really - We need to fuking win this game!:boxing::boxing: Nothing else needs to be said.
they are the only team to defeat us in the League so they need a harsh lesson taught.
i'm Always worried about boro games. my boro friend has given me shit for a long time now, we really need to win this and bump up our GD. =/
RVP needs to be starting because he will be playing a lot more often in the next few weeks with the champions league comming up.
