I think his problem now is to win games consistently with this system we need wingbacks that have consistency to their delivery because they get plenty of the ball in our attacks they're just ultra-wasteful.

Just to add to this Johnson has attempted 17 crosses in our opening 2 games and has been successful with 1 so far (6% success). Spence has attempted 6 and 1 has been successful (17%). 

If we stick with wingbacks, those percentages need to be much higher.

I don’t think we are really that far from being able to play a 4-3-3. Dijksteel looks perfectly capable of playing RB. We’d need a left back though definitely. Then we would need a right winger and a left winger, but we would no longer really need a 4th striker

McNair helped massively when he pushed up into midfield too. 

I hope Paddy does get moved in to midfield alongside Howson and Tav. I also feel he is better there and them 3 together give us a good balance. Morsy is challenging Howson for the DM role though which is good.

I’ve defended Johnson quite a bit on here, feel like he gets a disproportionate hard time but he was terrible today. How a professional footballer can cross like that is beyond belief. He got into some great positions but just couldn’t deliver. It was embarrassing really. Needs to improve dramatically or be dropped.

Do we really need another cb? Assuming he sees Mcnair there, we still have Fry to come back, Wood looks more than capable to be 5th choice and we also know Howson is semi capable of filling in a back 3. Just seems daft to be spending limited funds on another one. 

That is the Boro way though, why buy a winger when we can have a 7th CB.

What are the thoughts about the last comment with that photo? Could that be the young premier league striker? Let’s go?

Probably just his mate from Arsenal.

Doubt we'd be capable of getting Nketia
