I think the fact that Fry is playing alongside Dijksteel and Paddy rather than Friend and Howson might be helping him a little, he can move around a bit knowing that he will be covered by other people with speed and strength. 

Fry for me struggled badly when he was asked to play on left hand side of defence. He looks fine in centrally and looks fine on right hand side.

Am very happy he performing well again as it benefits us if he stays and benefits us if he leaves as he putting his price back up to a good level which in last 9 months had fallen due to his performances. Not advocating we sell him but harsh reality of current finances is why I make the point.

I've been completely taken by surprise by our start to the season, it's been far better than I expected. I'm honestly starting to look forward to games again (barring the fact I can't be there)

Reading won again as well meaning we're currently the only team to take any points off them.

Without context of the rest of the reffing performance, it looks a penalty. I think he's a lucky boy, there.

we look solid and horrible to play against. teams starting to not look forward to playing us again. add a cutting edge and keep the shots against down like we have and we could quite easily start winning runs on regular basis.

Its looks good or well better than I thought, even if it looked ok end of last season too

I just wish Warnock would hav gotten more players that he wanted, think we might have been an outsider for promotion then actually, Now I dont know, depends on if we can stay fit I think

I love the team being tough to break down again.

We were the better team last night anyway, but I've missed it.

Agree with this. Great to see a solid look about the team

We got 3 points by weathering a onslaught over the last 20 mins. It’s not the way I would like to win games but it’s winning, horrible yes, but winning. 
I think the team is now tougher even fitter but still goal shy and a small sized squad. We needed a couple more players and it shows and other teams know we are a bit of a bark without the bite 

I think NW is over cautious as we seen yesterday but he knows his players and there condition and he took 3 points against another inform team, now who would have put money on that? 
 

Im not getting carried away the football to watch is dire and it’s very early in the season, and who is to say the teams at the top we played will sustain there status.
I think we tend to agree the league will start to reveal itself in 10 to 15 games and we will know much more about our club and the players.

conclusion. 
i fear the squad is to small, we lack goals and the football is hard to swallow... 

UTB.

Wonder if we stayed in the Brissle area as Cardiff is just along the M4 from there?

I doubt it, ok the game can be played in spite of the restrictions in Wales but I would not think it would be encouraged to stay in the area longer than required.

You are talking 4 days before the game so back to the Boro bubble asap

    • A single goal by Huddersfield would have doubled my bankroll, but I'll take the 15,86 £ plus 😛 Bankroll is now 216,33 £  
    • Here we go as these Championship games are coming thick & fast & we can put our latest, unfortunate defeat behind us, move on & put another unbeaten run together, Neil Warnock wont let any of the player feel sorry for themselves after Saturdays defeat   And what better way to respond than to have a consecutive home game, they maybe struggling at the foot of the table but if we treat them with anything but respect they’ll turn us over   We’ve had some cracking games with Derby over the years at home, beating them 6-1, 5-1 even reaching our 1st ever FAC SF after winning at the baseball ground but its league points we’re after to achieve our goal of forcing our way in to the playoffs   Our 1st meeting between both teams on Teesside was back in 1903, our last season & penultimate game at Linthorpe road when the mighty Boro won 3-1, which included the final penalty taken on that ground   Since then we’ve met 147 times in total, Boro winning 64, drawing 34 & losing 50   Did you know we have scored 3 hattrick against Derby County George Camsell in 1929 John O’Rourke in 1967 Ravanelli in 1997   Represented  for both teams   Sir Bruce Rioch Colin Todd Ohhhhh Ravanelli Mikkel Beck Malcolm Christie who scored the only goal & very, very late goal at home to Brighton to start our carling cup run Chris Riggott David Nugent Ryan Shotton Ohhhhh Ravanelli Cyrus Christie Benito Carbone
    • You say that mate but he has perfectly good winger in Roberts sitting on the bench while he plays a young right back there. If he is expecting the likes of Bolasie and Grosicki to do the hard graft that I'm assuming he doesn't play Roberts for then I think he'll be in for a shock. 
    • It was only ever good because of the chemistry between Jeff and the pundits. A  football show without any football had no right to be so entertaining.  They weren't the most insightful pundits around but that was part of the fun. You could tell they were enjoying themselves and all genuinely loved the game. 
    • Sorry will put one up soon 👍
