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.

    • Can we add George Savinelli to the title thread please 😉
    • Warnock and his backroom staff are doing excellent work with the defence. Look a lot more organised and compact. It's refreshing to see Howson, Morsy and Saville also drop into the back line and defend and then break when we are in possession. Only thing is that we concede far too many silly free kicks in dangerous areas which will cost us goals over the course of the season. Dijksteel is looking like the player we all expected him too be and more and credit has to go to Warnock and his backroom staff. If he can get improve his heading, then we have some player on our hands.
    • Yes OC it’s amazing the difference a coaching team that knows what it’s doing can make. I think this is building towards a good season 
    • I think the coaches we now have can improve all the players at the club... may be a coincidence but the improvement of the U23 and U18 sides may be due a little to a number of them featuring in training sessions with first team and that can only help their progress...  they seem to have the knack of giving confidence to younger players and the team spirit has changed completely because of it 
    • Good post. Very hard to disagree with any part of it. Dijksteel and Bola do look like they are starting to blossom. Warnock did say that he thinks Browne will get game time when we opt to play 433 so I look forward to seeing him get his chance too
