1. I think there have been worse Boro games that have made me think that.
2. Based on our current form it does seem we win every second game.
Spence, Wood, McNair, Bola
Morsy, Howson, Saville
Watmore, Britt, Johnson
4. Surely Ramirez, we massively lack any creativity. I think defence and midfield are fine (when we have all our players fit and available) having that spark further up would be massive for our team. Traore is a good option and in a Warnock team Negredo would be perfect too.
Batth was getting plenty of game time, he was recalled because Wolves were offered millions for him by Stoke, he'd started 8 of our last 13 games before they recalled him.
Van La Parra was injured virtually his entire time here.
Morrison clearly has issues that prevent him playing anywhere.
Nmecha was rubbish but he played plenty of games under Woodgate, he was frozen out by Warnock.
The official FA guidelines are here... https://www.thefa.com/football-rules-governance/policies/player-registration/points-based-system
It is the "GBE Mens Player Criteria Jan 2021" document. I used it to work out if Zinkernagel would it the 15 points required (when we were supposedly linked with him), my rough sums had him on 10 points. Not sure if Watford got his WP before this came into effect, or if they got an exemption or if I had completely miss calculated.
Not just Roberts (x2) we have had Nmecha, Van le parra, Batth and Morrison all with very few appearances for us.
I guess it will depend on whether the player is a youngster looking for experience, a lad looking to put himself in the shop window or someone they just want off the books.
