Boro v Millwall (A) 2-0 (Assombalonga, Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

Don't think that looked like a clear penalty, to me. I think it was six and two threes and Spence has just sort of fell over, not dived, just fell. Wallace has kept his legs in as much as he could, he's not took Spence out. Maybe one but I don't think so.

Couple of times the ball could have fallen better for us. We’re doing okay but as always I’m nervous when we’re defending.

I have seen the replay 4 times .. 

My stream has replays .. but Drury said no replays was available.. I don't get that .. 

It's a penna, when you see it from the other angle, from the goal line

Better than last two games but you still wonder where the goals we need will come from.

I'm feeling fairly hopeful. Millwall haven't dominated. We've been able to play some decent stuff. Just need better final balls and players to get into better positions.

Fairly even so far, so Millwall are probably feeling the same.

It looked like a foul to me, he's nowhere near the ball and he's kind of pushed him and swung his leg at him.  Might not be a clear trip but outside the box its 100% a freekick.

I admit I don't know as much as you guys here so can someone please correct me in my thought that Wing and Tavernier and decent players, have been chipping in with goals and perhaps should be in the starting line up rather than on the bench?

Am I wildly wrong about these two? Are the players in the starting line up Boros best starting 11?

Tav is in my first 11, wing is not. Wing is ok to bring on when we cant break through as we can smash one in from 30 yards. He cant do much else though.

We are set up not to lose this game .. 5 defenders and 3 defensive minded midfielders .. 

Millwall has only scored 8 more goals than us this season ..

I agree with you, he seems to have not picked anyone with any creativity except Spence

Wing hasn't been great since the restart but I think Tav has done enough to earn a start. Really, it's difficult to say what our best 11 is absolutely because there has been so much quality lacking for months. Every strength is negated by a weakness and it's difficult to know where that balance lies in our team.

    • 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
