How’s that not a penalty? 
Ref made 3 crap decisions against us now. 
the foul on Spence early on and the fletcher one near the end. McNair was through on goal

Yep just said the same thing; a few interesting decisions for sure.

All in all a good first half. Midfield doing well. Attack looks a threat and is doing the basics well, i.e running the channels and getting us throws/corners in there third. 

Would like to see us try get Roberts on the ball more in final 3rd.

Damn! Another good chance for Boro right at the end of stoppage time!

Denied by some last-ditch Stoke defending.

 

Well overall the first half has gone much as I expected. Pretty scrappy, with not too many chances at either end.

Boro just edged it, by virtue of the fact they converted one of their chances. Hoping we aren't going to rue the missed opportunities to make it 2 or even 3-0 at half time.

Big shout to Dejan for keeping us ahead with a couple of good saves. 

Expect Stoke to come at us hard 2nd half - just hope we can weather the storm and maybe even seal the win with a second goal.

A friendly reminder that Woodgate benched this front 3 for Nmecha and Gestede. 

Thank god he is gone, and fingers crossed hard that we hold on and win this one.

We have a passing accuracy of 45% though, which...is less than ideal. Suppose that's the result when you go long down channels.

Yes that really is impressively low.

We should be 2 up but we look good despite our low possession something never said under Woodgate who ceded possession week in week out for nothing and Pulis who ceded possession played an awful formation for counter attacking and was similarly 'direct'.

Shouldn't just compare what Warnock's gave us so far to Woodgate compare to Pulis he puts the pair of them to shame in terms of shape/formation/effectiveness/quality of set pieces. Hopefully we find a second goal we need all 3 points here it's massive.

Wonder if Warnock had a hand in gestede going, wonder if was more that Warnock told him to bugger off and telling Gibson hes on too much for what he does.

We need to get another goal early on.  Think we need more of a cushion.

I agree but also just picking Britt, fletcher, Roberts and Spence wasn’t rocket science. It just shows up how bad the previous manager was.

    • Stokes signings are typical Stoke signings that you would expect them to make and very short term. They are an awful team and i was hoping they would go down.   One thing with Warnock is he will really look into our targets and not sign them for the sake of it. He knows what we need and i do trust him.  I remember Aitor saying if you make a signing he has to make the team better or improve the squad so its vital we sign players like that. It's just very interesting with so little money and so many free transfers around. We're definitely into a new era now.     
    • Arsenal fans don't seem to mind. 🙃 Come to think of it, there's more than a few PL grounds that often lack atmosphere.
    • Mikel was ok for us, he had a couple of decent games that was about it.   
    • Stoke doing very well to get players through the door this summer. 4 decent signings all done quickly. I don’t believe that we’re not trying our absolute best to get signings done but it’s starting to become a worry when our rivals are managing what we can’t. 
    • Probably because there are no transfers to discuss. Not even any rumours it seems. I'm surprised there's been no more on Pears - either on signing extension or leaving.  I'm think the efforts at the moment are on left back, centre back, defensive midfield and a striker.  Our squad looks very thin with training starting on Monday. I bet the club thought they would have more in by now. It's a crazy window.
