Brentford fan here. What an odd game. Felt the Boro had bigger chances to be honest. Main reason I wanted to come on here was to say that during the 20 game unbeaten run, the Boro games were 2 wh

Completely disagree. Apart from the Sky games and those since lockdown, I've listened to him all season this year and he calls things as they are 95% of the time. He makes one comment everyone disagrees with, including myself, and suddenly he's one of the most biased commentators there is. Nah.

Not everyone disagrees, DurhamRed has just a few posts above you said he thinks it's a clear offside.

Haven't even let us down today - lets please remember that these are almost certainly the best footballing side in this division and have scored a whopping 49 (including today) goals in the league already.

Hoof hoof hoof. That then givens them the ball.

There would be no point in making the playoffs if we can’t compete and beat teams as such.

He’s not a commentator. He’sa expert summariser 😉

He talks too much though. I wish he would speak less. Or not at all.

Well they say an "ex" is a has-been and a "spurt" is a drip of water under pressure.

"Summer-riser" - someone who likes to get up early during warm weather?

HT.  Scoreline probably unfair on Brentford 

Really? How many chances have they had? I count one really good chance, which they scored. Since that first one went in, we have by and large kept them quiet.

If anything, we've had one goal which we were pretty lucky to score but had one chance we absolutely should have scored and they've scored their one really good chance. 1 a piece is about right, for me.

He's meant to summarise the action though, not the English language.

I mean from Bettinelli and a few clearances sure, but you can see they're aiming for channel balls for Bolasie, Britt and Kebano with 90% of them. They're not aimless like they often have been

So far we've had 29% possession, we've made 92 passes so far with an accuracy of 54%. 31 of our 92 passes have been long balls (34%). 

Brentford on the other hand have had 71% possession, made 241 passes with an accuracy of 82%. 32 of their 241 passes have been long balls (13%). Interestingly Brentford have a long ball accuracy of 72% compared to our long ball accuracy of 39%.

Much as I expected, that half was pretty much all Brentford, following a short spell of early pressure, with a couple of corners...the second leading to the opening goal.

Very similar to Norwich - dominated possession but created few clear-cut chances. Main difference obviously was that one good move that had our defence all over the place and resulted in the equaliser.

Boro were dogged in defence for most of the half...any more dogged and we'd have had to call the RSPCA.

All square at the break is pretty fair I feel. Definitely would take this result at full time...but I feel there are more goals to come.

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
