I'm desperate for us to win this, but yeah, a Rotherham win would put them a point behind Derby with 2 games in hand, they could do it. Derby and Sheffield Wednesday both going down would be a be

Genuine guy is Marv. Stand out player in 1st half of the season. Very unlucky to not have been involved more. Loves it at Boro.

Malley has very nice feet. Looks hard to deal with in possession

In fairness he does see them all week at Rockliffe and a few nutmegs on Bolasie, skinning Kebano and unleashing a twenty yard screamer a few times I'm sure wouldn't have gone unnoticed. Regardless of where he has played when he got game time he hardly made an impact. I do think he looked better before Warnock arrived but for one reason or another he just hasn't replicated his early promise.

I mean, if you want the reason why he hasn't shown the same as he did last year then these 2 images answer that question. He's not played, when he has played he hasn't played for long and he hasn't played in the right positions in terms of producing the performances he previously gave, the ones that made us give him the contract to begin with.



So sure, you can tell me he's not shown enough in training but there were very few fans that didn't see something in Coulson last year, certainly early on. I saw it as early as pre-season live on a couple of occasions under Woodgate and then most weeks. I remember in the cup game when we made a lot of changes and finally gave him an appearance this season, he was stuck at right wing-back. Has he even played under Warnock at left-back this season?

Warnock thinks he needed to show something else to get into the team, to come in and play out of position to try and prove something different. And he got what, 30 minutes against QPR in that kind of position, now he might be amongst a few others who are done for under him? It's a bit pathetic, really, if true.

    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
    • with fry playing we never seem to get done in behind the defense. without him it seems nearly every game. dijksteel and tavs work rate and energy on the right side. they dominated every team we played on that side. we missed one of them but once both were out team never looked the same. next season if we keep bolasie and he is linking with tav and has dijksteel over lapping all the space those two will create i'm sure he would be thriving. we get the correct forward in with him and i'm positive for next season. easier said than done though. we need a keeper who is competent in shot stopping and commanding his area.  
    • Starting with the backs, no massive surprises in terms of who has been selected, barring Aki and Daly. But Daly can cover nearly every backline position, so it makes some sense in taking him, then it makes sense Aki is going as he fills a Tuliagi/Roberts shaped hole of previous tours. The biggest surprise in the backs for me is not having at least one or two of J.Davies, Slade or Ringrose. The forwards is where there are some big omissions; James Ryan, Billy V, CJ Stander or Underhill plus a very distinct lack of English props. Lawes being included despite his injury is a strange one, then Conan and Hill are two big surprises for me too. Sam Simmonds being involved is not a shock at all for me. I do not envy the selectors at all!
    • @Youngy228 I'm up for it if it's ok and there is still room.
