Everyone here knows Jones should be starting without a doubt, just a shame the management is blind 

Not sure the management are blind just think they are trying to protect him and nurture him. 

Not to the same level but Ferguson did something similar with Giggs.

I don't know if anyone else was close by or saw that but I was coming down the stairs in the North for the build up to that second goal. Payero sets up Coburn and we should be saying first and foremost how good Coburn was as a young lad coming on for those final few minutes and he deserved his goal. Great stuff.

But the relief for Payero. Oh my word. Fans and players alike just wanted to hug the lad. Everyone running in to celebrate with him. I've watched him a lot this season so far and I don't just mean on the pitch. Watched his body language as a young lad coming in from a country on the other side of the world. These last few weeks he's been emotionally void, clearly depressed at how it's going so far and the same thing can be said of him first half today. Little bit lost, not quite up for it.

Second half has been better. Not the peak of what we can expect from him I hope by any means but more involved, more capable, more willing, more collaborative. Just more everything.

And let's not treat this result or goal as anything special in terms of what it means to our season. There is still plenty to say about our performance against this Peterborough side that shows we still aren't playing to the best of the squad's ability.

But sometimes football is special even in moments you don't expect. And that's how I felt watching Payero setting up that goal and watching the fans and players run to him. To congratulate, to celebrate with, to love this young man who needs it from closer to his new home and needs it now more than ever. I genuinely nearly cried watching. Let's hope this is only the beginning.

Anyone got the clip of the lads running to celebrate with Payero after the assist

Yes and let's hope that this can continue.

Alarmed at how poor Ikpeazu has become

I think the more players we bring in who want to play the ball on the floor the poorer he will look, poor signing from Warnock

You could see from that celebration that he's really well liked within the squad, they were all chuffed for him.

There was a lovely big bear hug between him and Leo after the game as well.

Loved Payero's reaction to the assist, its clearly meant a lot to him, also the way the rest of the players reacted to him, they celebrated it like he had scored.  He looked lost in the first half but came into the game more when Jones cam on and Tav went into the middle.

For our pen, I don't know if it's been mentioned, but before the corner was taken Sol was stood in front of the ref for about 30 secs or so calmly telling him about all the fouls he'd missed at the previous corners, so I wasn't surprised at all when we then got a pen, even if it did look soft.  He wouldn't have dared say no again.

Just got in from the game, we're bloody awful to watch 2-0 flatters us, thank god the ref gave a spot kick because I think we would have played al night and not scored the 2nd came from Peterborough chasing the game. A neutral watching this would  think this was a relegation battle. I'll give Bamba and McNair credit they both played well.

I think Ikpeazu is better than we are seeing. Bamba, McNair and Payero's second half showing apart they all flattered to deceive or looked rank poor, it's unfair to single out any individual when the team as an entirety simply didn't perform or function at all.

What service did he or Sporar for that matter enjoy? How many corners did we win and then how many tantalising balls were crossed into the box just waiting for a Striker to get his head on the end of or even a toe to? The free kicks were as usual poor, the Payero one stands out in isolation, it was teasing but I think it surprised everyone including our own players.

The entire team looked down and lacking in confidence. I think Warnock's whining has eventually drained the enjoyment and with it the belief out of them.

Yep, spotted that. He'd had a word with the ref after the last corner too. Smart play.

 

I've just noticed on the sky sports highlights that Mcnair had an armful of bamba shirt and was dragging him down too for the penalty 🤣

I came in to say something similar.  It brought a tear to my eye too and I hope with a run of games he will continue to grow in confidence. I was watching him closely throughout because like many on here, I’m desperate to see him do well, I think he’s been treated very badly. 
First half he looked a bit lost but did create a couple of chances (the free kick and chance for Crooks) and was asking for the ball in dangerous areas. Second half he saw a lot more of the action and played well. 
His reaction after the second goal was like all his frustrations and pent up emotion just came spilling out. He celebrated wildly behind the goal, the JLS came over to celebrate with him, then the other lads and the crowd! It was an emotional moment - everyone so happy for him and united in wanting to lift/congratulate him. As he came off the pitch, Leo gave him the biggest hug. 
Hopefully  the start of something special between Payero and Boro

Warnock with some warm words for Payero post match, apparently his partner's moved over this week and it's put a smile on his face in training.

Crooks sitting behind him I'm not so sure about he basically says it's because he can't trust him defensively yet but I'm not a fan of Crooks as a number 6.

    • In his Defence, “Believe” is more auto-tune than it is Cher 😂
    • I didn't say it did. We had a better squad, and more investment than them, they still cheated to get the squad that they did have. Cheating doesn't necessarily make you better than somebody else, it just closes the gap. Derby indisputably cheated, and they finished above us because they cheated.  Waghorn, a player they breached FFP to sign ahead of us, scored 5 goals that led to two wins and two draws. He assisted 2 goals that led to a win and a draw. He also scored another 4 goals and provided 1 assist that helped lead to wins, but weren't integral to them. They finished above us by 1 point, and a player they cheated to sign was directly responsible for at least 12 of their points that season.
    • I would love to attend this if it happened to fall on when i was next in Middlesbrough. Unfortunatley living just outside of Brighton makes the journey a little difficult but i would be very up for this!
    • So important.  Wilder totally justified in his comments about Crooks being first choice and Payero having that as a barrier.  But the importance of team spirit and bond will be crucial.  Injuries/suspensions will likely come into play and feel for the first time in a while we are trying to ensure we have cover in all areas of the pitch that have the attributes we highlight as being required for them. 
    • I wouldn't equate the difference between our combined abilities from season start to end, within our club from the top down, to being like they were on performance enhancing drugs compared to us. They cheated but I don't think that suddenly made them or their squad in any way better than ours. That summer window was quite possibly the worst we've seen since relegation, too. There is so much about that year that fills me with dread to think about because we handled it so badly from start to end. Derby spending beyond their means didn't, or perhaps shouldn't have, affected us anywhere near as much as we seem to claim it has.
