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

    • Two scoring draws last term between the teams and always a close call before that. Forest you would expect to shrug off their poorish start and to progress, but they will also be desperate to start winning. However I would suspect Houghton will be content with a point at the Riverside but for Boro we need to start winning back to back games and I believe we will be too much for Forest and achieve a rare event of late. Maybe travelling teams will be showing a bit more respect towards us as a whole but I do think the game will be very different than seen against Coventry. Going for a home win though at start of season would have been ok with a draw  
    • Forest have so many attacking options, IF we win this it'll set a great marker for where we are heading.
    • I can see Spence dropping to the bench and one of bola or Johnson stepping in, with tav on the right. I assume that was the purpose of the subs the other night. roberts back to the bench as well perhaps.... if no akpom, I’m comfortable with Browne starting, he has done everything asked of him so far. Midfield and defence picks itself, barring injury 
    • So I've seen lots of highlights recently where both penalties and red cards were given, I thought they'd moved away from red cards if it was a penalty, or is it still a red card for being last man?
    • Hopefully Akpom is fit and if he is I would go to a 3.5.2. I would also bring Coulson in. I want him to succeed here and NW said he looked bright in training. Betti Dijk Fry Paddy Tav Howson Morsy Sav Coulson Britt Akpom I would love a win but i rate forest. Would not be too disappointed with a draw.
