He was going so slowly that he almost caused time to start going backwards. Just a lack of confidence maybe. Did the biz with the penalty though 👍

Nice to see he had the confidence to grab the ball for the pen tho and what a penalty it was!

Johnson is good as a wing back. It’s when he’s LB that he’s a risk. Spence fantastic and I loved seeing Britt run on to celebrate with Fletcher. Shows he cares.

Great pen etc but wtf was Fletch taking so much time for he should have buried that 1 v 1!

True, I'm not even sure he'd have scored that had the defender left him.

He made Anglian Red's stream look like Usain Bolt

Credit where it’s due. That was a brilliant away performance against a very difficult team. Hard to see past fletcher for MoM with an assist and goal but shotton gets it for me.

    • Adomah, Grant and Stuani would make a difference. Tuncay looked the part but as a club I felt we never really benefited from him to his maximum potential. The little fella is an obvious but he would be clogged to death in the Championship so Merse would be a better option. Traore was fast and exciting but that was it, he reminded me of one of those Burlesque dancers, plenty of teasing but nothing to show for it despite all those twirling tassels and mesmerization.
    • The Evening Gazette will surely report on the story soon. It’ll be another opportunity to reiterate for the hundredth time that no one wants to buy us and how we should be eternally happy to have Steve Gibson in charge of us. After all, it has been a good few weeks since their tongue was that deep in there.
    • I’m going to be cheeky and suggest a player from each manager in my recent time.   McClaren era = Gareth Southgate - a leader and a rock at the back. Mr dependable. Southgate era =  toss up between Johnson or Woodgate, but I’d have to say Woodgate for the same as Southgate. Oozed class and as much as I can’t stand him from his stint as manager. I can’t take away his defending quality. Special mention to Johnson for his natural width and quality at this level. Strachan era = Barry Robson. Hard working and always put a shift in. Not dripping with quality but the best of a horrendous recruitment period. Seriously, go back and have a look at some of the names...if you dare. Mowbray era = tough between grant or George. Both got at great prices and both did terrific work over their time with boro. Maybe Leadbitter shades it for his leadership ability which I feel friend lacked this season. Karanka era = Clayton in his prime. Played the holding midfield role to a t. Always felt like he had more to offer going forward but his responsibility reduced his impact further up. But I’d still say a Clayton in his prime with us is streets ahead of what we had this season.    Monk era = Braithwaite. I’m coming round to the idea that Pulis painted him out to be a bit of a snake and it’s not actually true. Sure he could have worked harder and fought for the shirt a bit more, but playing Pulis ball didn’t suit him and rightly so, he called him out on it. He had good quality though and how a team of Braithwaite, Bamford and Britt didn’t get us promoted is criminal.    Pulis era = Traore. When it was good, wow it was amazing. I’ve never seen a player as explosive and good at dribbling than him at boro. And we never will either. I also love how he grew under Pulis and was a player who you really wanted it to click for.     
    • I'm with Wilson, I'm a tuncay stan. I think if I had to pick someone who would make the most DIFFERENCE right now though...hmm, that's tough, especially if you can't pick TLF.  Gaston would bring creativity that we need. Traore is always a good answer too... And I can't believe I'm saying this because I mocked him for being nothing more than a shouty man, but we need Grant Leadbitter and his shouty man attitude right now too.
