All down to Britt this. Shocking play from start to finish for him. Needed taking off before half time.

On that showing, I don't think anyone's gonna be too worried if he's off in January, just saw the first goal again, dreadful shot-stopping. And I don't quite understand what he tried to do for their second, although it was a complete calamity of errors all across the pitch.

I think bettinelli needs to stop talking to his agent about premier league interest and instead work on his shot stopping. I remember he was caught out a few times near post early on in the season. He has to save the first goal today too. Has he actually had a good save to make this season?

Need to be beating teams like this if you’re serious about play offs or higher.

Can’t wait to get Fletcher back in January and add some quality. I’d give someone money to take Britt at this point

Well that was a disappointing half.

Boro looked great for the first 20 minutes or so. We were attacking, pinging the ball around very nicely and looking far the better team. Worst thing was Britt missing an absolute sitter from practically under the bar.

Then we scored...

We then inexplicably decided to just let Huddersfield have possession, alternately sitting back or pressing. Which worked well for a while. But the more they had of the ball, the more dangerous they looked. Just felt like it was a matter of time before we either got sloppy or made a mistake...and so it proved.

If anything we looked even worse after they equalised. Overall I'd say Huddersfield deserve to be ahead...they were on top for more of the half.

NW needs to give the lads a kick up the *** and hopefully a game plan to get back into this.

Absolutely spot on. He can go for me.

How conceding two goals be Britts fault? 🤨 How about the poor goalkeeping and defending? How about Spence being absolutely anonymous? How about Tavs awful touch when through early on? We let them back into the game after we scored we stopped doing what we are good at.

One I would not care if he was left out or left the club. I can see how many can defend his worth

As if Britt took his chances we be winning 2-5

honestly looks like he slipped on the second, looks like he falls over even before Campbell has started to shoot.

    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.

    • I don't know anywhere near enough about St Pauli or Bundesliga 2 to really say if it means anything, but I notice Stojanovic has only kept 1 clean sheet in his 8 games there, letting in 13 goals. In the same period Bettinelli has played 10 homes, kept 2 clean sheets, and let in 16. Fairly similar statistically, though I've not actually watched their games and I imagine Stojanovic made more saves in that period.
