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.

    • 1: Team and formation? Same same. Can't change after such a showing. I'd like to see Tav central with Johnson on the wing but I can't drop any of Sav, Morsy and Howson after wednesday. 2: Is it good to change a winning team? Depends on circumstances but generally no. 3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy? Think he will give it a bit of a rest and avoid a card. 4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance? Yes. He'll bag a brace. 5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... It's certainly looking better now. 6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard? Not even a contest. Maiden all the way. 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? I think we can, but I'm afraid we'll just miss out. 8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)? No idea. But my guess is Kebano.
    • The preparation for a specific match is probably a bit more important than we think. That is also what separates the good managers from the bad. The ability to drill into the team how to beat an upcoming opponent. We were woefully prepared under Woodgate and that has changed dramatically under a more proven manager. Granted he also gets outsmarted or gets his tactics all wrong, but I'm not going to deny that a lack of proper preparation with the team had an adverse effect on how we dealt with Birmingham. It was a woeful performance though so I'm going to split it 50/50 between inconsitency and lack of preparation.
    • we are inconsistent but we have Big J back in midfield.  first game back and it was like he never went away motm by a mile. when some of the younger lads are struggling to pass 5 yards he gets the ball and slips his markers carries the ball miles, plays in key passes making it look easy. he surely has lifted squad coming back into the team.  results will improve now. wouldnt be surprised to go on another winning run now. think we'll beat norwich to. they rode their luck last time out. we'll have them this time. blackburn have fell away we can win that one to.
    • Need to get back to winning ways at home so massive game and certainly no sentiments for former Boro associates. We are hot and cold with results so need to be hot, hot, hot again!
