From that report, we can establish a little of the starting XI:

GK - Stojanovic

CB - Dijksteel

CB - Hall
CB - ???
LB - Bola?

RM - Spence
CM - Wing
CM - ???
LM - ???

ST - Fletcher
ST - Assombalonga

I think it was this

GK - Stojanovic

RWB - Spence

RCB - Dijksteel

CB - Hall

LCB - Wood

LWB - Bola

RCM - Tav

CM - Howson

LCM - Wing

ST - Fletcher

ST - Britt

You can see Coulson on the sideline sat down in training gear I don't think he was involved today?

Can't see Browne in any early pictures (first 3 goals) not sure if he started I don't think the math works unless he started instead of Bola who I don't see early either but then we don't have a LWB? He appears with Folarin and co after 4 1, can't see Marv at all either.

Perhaps we beat them so convincingly because we had all 17 players on at the same time.

they were worn out by the travelling...and the weather affected them adversely ....oh..and they are really not that good

Good stuff man 👍🏻

Nice dynamic system if Dijksteel is allowed to overlap. Can switch from 3-5-2 to a 4-4-2/4-3-3 at the drop of a hat. Versatile players like Tav and Dijsksteel would be key in that.

Tav started too I think.

Spence was wearing 19 and Walker 20 in the pics so don't think either started.

Spence definitely started - The Boro striker then headed over from Djed Spence’s cross, but was on target after just seven minutes when he outmuscled his marker and coolly slotted away.

Dont expect Britt to feature at all this week. There has been some interest and the club are desperate to get it pushed through quickly.

Did Britt play today?

Maybe they're the new squad numbers then

Warnock interview is up on website and he said we are working hard to bring in new players. Cant work any harder but does not see us getting anyone in this week.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
