We beat 'Boro on Boxing Day back in 2001 IIRC.

 

Aye we beat them 3-0 at home. But the list is away games on boxing day. :lol:

 

PS - I think we'll get beat tbh.

 

I'm with you, Mr Numbers. It's the old 'it's only Wigan Athletic' problem again. If, however, JFK can motivate the team to the same high level for every team, and not just the 'big boys', we could snatch something against most oppostion.

We've kept clean sheets the last three away games. Not sure about Boro but Portsmouth and definitely Chelsea have superior strikers, so there's no reason we can't get something out of this match. Trends have got to end at some point (we've lost 1-0 away to them four straight matches) so hopefully it will be today. I will, however, be very content with a point given our recent record and the fact Wigan are doing well currently.
