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


Recommended Posts

So it's Bristol, Reading (MASSIVE), Cardiff and Sheff Weds to go if we squeak 2 wins out of that we're safe. If wigan ever do get deducted we might just need 1 win and a draw.

Well done, apart from a few spells from us you deserved that. I didn't think it was a pen in the first half, I didn't think it was much of a foul for your first, it looked like Cooper slipped.  T

Well like @Islanderits my birthday too (43 today) And Boro have given me the best present possible.  so happy just now 😀😀😀

Must mention Stoj's saves at 0-0. Would have been a very different game if he hadn't made them

Shotton MotM for me.

Aye, same for me I reckon. They have put some dangerous balls into the box and we have had a couple of moments where others' defending has been poor and he's covered up for him. Sweeping up well, doing a good job to keep us a clean sheet. Stojanovic done a decent job to make sure of that too.

Howson much more efficient in midfield again, too.

Get in, that feels so good. Well deserved Boro and nice one Warnock think he got that one right, but there was something Ive been pondering this half, are we better against better opposition as they then dont try drag us down to their level?

It's performances like this that has made it so frustrating following boro this year as if the side actually turns up and fights they can beat anyone in this division shown at Westobrom Preston and today! Should no way be in the relegation dogfight with this squad as they have the ability

One win is all we need I think. Or a few draws.

I gave shotton stick for a couple of slip ups but hes my motm too.

Thought everyone did their jobs though. It wasnt pretty and I'd hate to see us play like this over the course of a season (mainly because I have for 2 seasons already) but needs must. Good win and strong performance as a team.

Yep, thought we would get battered, but that is the fight that was missing vs Hull & QPR. We won so many second balls, crunched into tackles, played some nice balls and some good stuff at times. Two well taken goals (even if Fletch should have scored the initial chance). 

Great games from Fletch, Britt, Howson, Shotton, Johnson and Stojanovic (his best game I think). 

Shotton for MOTM for me, cleaned up at the back and was a rock all game.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
