Huddersfield Town V Boro 3-2 ( Johnson, Assombalonga))

Recommended Posts

😂😂 one loss and so many people have wet the bed. Are you guys expecting us to now win every game and perform well every week? Come off it, the squad is still massively overachieving.

Pfft. I hate that we always have these frantic stoppage time spells. Why do we leave it so late? Why do we not play like this during normal time?

Created some decent chances and had Huddersfield very much on the back foot.

 WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY...do we not do this from the off?

 

Should have been 3 points and very likely would have been if we'd kept playing like we did for the first 20 minutes. Tried to sit back for far too long. Worked for a while but eventually the pressure told and we collapsed into Woodgate-era defending.

Took ages to get back into the game. Rallied but still couldn't remember how to defend.

Huddersfield deserved the win. Would love to know what happened to us today...

Not sure why Warnock getting blamed. We had enough chances to put the game to bed in he first half. And the goals we conceded were school stuff. 

He let the whole second half drift without any intention to get at Huddersfield. Then, when we got a very lucky penalty, he reverts to type and goes negative immediately. How’s about trying to actually win a game!?


his substitutions were absolutely woeful

Other than the first 15 minutes, we were poor today. Bizarre use of substitutions (or lack of), Watmore did look half decent when he came on. Think if we can get him upto full fitness, he'll be a handy option. We move on and we move forward, need a positive result on Wednesday.

We clearly didn't play ok though...

We were ok, not good, not bad, we created quite a few chances and made quite a few mistakes. Those factors don’t suddenly make us rubbish or Warnock a bad manager, just like when we beat the bottom team we don’t suddenly become promotion candidates.

Not sure why we bothered bring Roberts in. He doesn’t even come off the bench most of the time

Warnock has been brilliant but his subs are so hot and cold. It was crying out for them at HT or 60 mins and waits until 80/85. Huddersfield are a very average team and were there to be beat

I expect promotion as am sick of the championship it's depressing league to watch your side compete in. Even when your side win it is still horrendous football match.

Well NW and the team have been shockingly exposed. I’m not surprised NW had not made tactical changes as he just seems reluctant to do so in any game. NW SHOULD explain why Robert’s is at the club because I would like to know. Brit for me is a waste of space, baggage we can’t carry 
Today we are whooped by a team lower in the league who could have scored more then 3 goals. It happens and it may happen again but let’s face it based on past results we are a mid table team

Nobody's wetting the bed.

People are just understandably angry and upset that we got off to a winning start, but threw the game away through some truly baffling and awful play.

Losing is easier to understand and accept if you were awful the whole game and never looked like winning.

I’m probably in the minority, but I liked the fact that Warnock changed to 442, both of our strikers play better with a strike partner. I don’t see how Roberts would have fitted in to that formation.

Warnock owns this. Should have hooked Britt earlier. Not bringing wingers on was an absolute open goal missed.

Hudds were in shocking form. He needs to trust his players more. Really annoyed about this game.

Not bringing Morsy on at some point to get a grip was just bonkers.

To be fair we should have scored more than 2 aswell. We should have scored 3 the first 15 min..... 😛

    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
    • But Britt and Fletcher were never actually worth what we paid. Quoting their purchase price to explain a decrease in value of squad makes no sense. By the same measure Fry and Paddy have increased in value more than those 2 have dropped. As have Tav, Bola and Dijksteel.
