Gutted for Clayton, would of been fitting for him to be involved in the final game and help of some sort to keeping us up.

Been an excellent signing, shame he's going but it's for the best of the football club.

Sad way for his career here to end. As everyone knows I am a huge Clayton fanboy and to go out like this is sad, he deserved better 😞

Yet another flip in formation.. seems to be every game under warnock, even more so than it was under woodgate

Not terribly surprising, Woodgate had a whole preseason and the majority of an actual season to find his preferred style, Warnock has had a few weeks & every other game we *** the bed.

It's quite telling that Warnock doesn't appear to want him involved even with Howson missing.  Assuming it was Warnock who made the decision.

Can't see it being any other formation unless dijksteel is CB in a 5-3-2

Yeah, that was what I thought might be a possibility.

Can’t wait for this season to be over. Don’t want a nervous couple of weeks waiting for Wigan’s appeal, got to get ourselves safe today. Come on Boro!

Yes but he has been watching us this season before he took over, and has the benefit of game footage throughout the season. I'd have expected him to put some kind of stamp on our style of play by now but he hasn't.

I completely agree.

TBH I think Pulis ruined him when he took him out of the team for the 1st time in his Boro career.

Been an excellent signing for this football club and he gets remembered for the good times.

Yea I'm thinking it's 352 formation too, Spence and Johnson as wingbacks with Tav being in the middle with Saville and Mcnair

This is so nervy we simply don't want to fall into 22nd place praying on Wigan athletic losing an appeal

4 2 3 1 again?

Spence and Fletcher wide with Tav at No 10. Or swap fletcher and tav

I've seen glaciers move faster than him.

Sort yourselves out ❄️

I don't see the game listed in any streams. Probably due to so many important games tonight. But if anyone finds one then a link would be appreciated.

Thanks

Edit. I see it in USA goals. Will give that a go

Depends on how much stock you put in Warnocks quotes that he was going to try and convince Clayton to be available

    • Yes OC it’s amazing the difference a coaching team that knows what it’s doing can make. I think this is building towards a good season 
    • I think the coaches we now have can improve all the players at the club... may be a coincidence but the improvement of the U23 and U18 sides may be due a little to a number of them featuring in training sessions with first team and that can only help their progress...  they seem to have the knack of giving confidence to younger players and the team spirit has changed completely because of it 
    • Good post. Very hard to disagree with any part of it. Dijksteel and Bola do look like they are starting to blossom. Warnock did say that he thinks Browne will get game time when we opt to play 433 so I look forward to seeing him get his chance too
    • Sadly Marske's march to Wembley has been halted after a narrow away defeat by Brackley (well. it was closer than Venlo-Ajax), but the Pool and Darlo both through to first round proper and looking forward to a possible draw against slumbering giant Wunderland (or more likely an away trip to Torquay)  
    • I championed this lad last season when he was getting slated. I looked at his physical attributes and thought he would be worth a go in a holding midfield role but goodness me the lad has shone like a star playing in defence this season. He is strong and powerful with a great turn of pace but I've been extremely impressed with how he has held his own in aerial battles too. If you also add to that his reading of the game and how comfortable he is on the ball then it's even more impressive.  I've noticed one or two weaknesses in terms of his positioning and concentration at times where he has been done with a little one two or a player running off his shoulder but that's being overly critical really considering he is learning all the time in his new role. I'd also like to point out that young Bola is making huge strides this season. The pair of them are looking like good signings so well done to Jonny Woodgate for identifying them and for the legend Warnock and his staff for improving their games and recognising their potential in different roles. Now let's see the same happen with young Browne who I think also has plenty of raw talent and physical attributes to make it. One final message for the scousers. Hands off Virgil Van Djiksteel !
