Warnock says he intentionally played the system because he wouldn't play it in a league game vs 4 at the back and wanted to see what problems it caused and that's why we didn't change tactic during the game.

Watmore left out because he was tired didn't wanna risk him. Tav left out cause he felt tight

Ah, some clarity about the season ahead then if that is the case.  Our formation will be dependent on what we think the opposition will be playing.  If they play a three at the back then we play a three at the back.  If they play a four then presumably we play a four.  All about matching them up I guess for our man marky thing.

Pretty much, think we did a similar thing for at portions of last season too.

I know last year we tried not to play 3 at the back if the opponent only played 1 up top because NW thinks that's too many CBs for one striker.

Any word on Uche?

Nothing in the club interview. That seems more likely to come out through the press stuff.

That helps a little .. So it was a case of what NOT to do .. 
Good work out for some .. Worrying with injuries though .. We are thinner and thinner, it seems

At least that means he recognises it wasn't working, so hopefully it's no set in stone.

guess the idea is that the same 11 can switch between 433 and 343/5231/532

This doesn't make any sense to me at all. He knew it wouldn't work but he did it anyway? Surely pre season should be about getting the players (particularly the new ones) to play how we expect them to play when the season starts? Sorry Neil, but that's yet more rubbish from a post match interview, season hasn't even started yet.

It's not that silly. Gives you footage to watch about what happens when you play 3 at the back vs their formation.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
