The keeper doesn’t like catching the ball does he. 

He's caught a few where he's been clattered, but he is a European goalkeeper, so he'll have grown up punching first, it's a tough habit to break.

God I hope the rest of the half isn't going to be like this. Not sure my nerves can take it.

 

Woeful kick into touch by Stojanovich...something else he needs to work on.

Doesnt have to be broken, top keepers know when to punch and when to catch, both are valuable skills - not sure why english football is the only league where its looked down on. I think hes made the right decision the majority of times.

I'd be considering replacing Spence with shotton. I dont like shotton and all but spence has gotten everything wrong in the last 10 mins.

Clinton Morrison on SSN keeps talking about Stockovic. Is it too much to at least attempt the correct pronunciation, Clinton?

I agree in general, although European goalkeepers do have more of a tendency to punch even when they could catch it. Only once have I thought Dejan punching was the wrong idea though.

Stoke definitely having the better of the half so far. They're looking like the home side now. Boro looking very reactive and a bit panicky at times. Sliding back into recent habits?

It'll take a while for Warnock to de-Woodgate-ify the team. Even so, the first half has given me confidence I haven't felt since Luton on the opening day of the season. Give Warnock a fortnight to drill the players, and we should be able to beat any bottom-half team.

    • Live updates would be nice. 
    • Hope Morsy starts and we get to see a bit of Akpom.   Would be great to pick up our first three points here, otherwise were falling behind already - not good for morale. QPR shouldn't be as difficult as our first two prem opponents, and Grant may give us an edge over them tactically, so fingers crossed for a 2-1 Boro win. Britt and Saville to score.  
    • D Barnsley v Coventry City  H Birmingham City v Rotherham United  A AFC Bournemouth v Norwich City  H Bristol City v Sheffield Wednesday  D Cardiff City v Reading  H Derby County v Blackburn Rovers Huddersfield Town v Nottingham Forest - VOID A Millwall v Brentford  H Preston North End v Stoke City  A Queens Park Rangers v Middlesbrough  H Watford v Luton Town  Wycombe Wanderers v Swansea City - VOID
    • In that case, lets hope we can get a decent tune out of our new Chuba and that he doesn't hit too many bum notes. 
    • Thats the spirit, old bean! Lets give those London softies a jolly good thrashing, what ho?
