UTB!   

Matt Crooks is the business.

What a signing this lad is turning out to be.

Well Sunday morning always feels better after a Boro win and a good performance on top of the victory. What a pass from Crooks for the second goal. Absolutely brilliant. I love it. UTB

Woken up in a good mood today, happy with the performance and the result.

Glad we can bask in it for a week now.

Still irritated by that own goal right at the end, I don't blame any of the players for it but we really do concede a lot of daft goals.

The next goal will deflect in off an ice cream van.

3 games where we've restricted teams to mainly pot shots but conceded from some comical blunders... You'd have to hope that some of these goals are just unlucky and then it seems like we'd be a solid team. 

Early signs are good from this team and can only see improvements with time and some better suited personnel in the next few transfer windows.

Kind of a strange emotional Sunday morning. A BORO win, blanket of snow and a garden with only 50% of a fence left standing. 
 

The signs of change were undeniably visible with shape, passing and movement but so was the need for improving fitness levels, decision making and some better players. On that note what the hell was the club with superb facilities doing in the past, what were the coaching and medical staff doing or not doing and surly questions need to be asked and action taking even if heads roll. 
 

I think and hoping with Chris we may even stop our unwanted historical slump of coming down with the Christmas decorations. Although bedding in new players may impact this years gift to the town.  
 

All in all things are looking positive.

Just seen this goal that was outstanding. If it was De Bruyne Messi or Hinchcliffe they wouldn't stop talking about it.

That was a good goal. MOTD would melt if that had been scored by Liverpool or M. City.

Thanks for posting.

I know we won but it's absolutely refreshing to see the whole board getting behind the team and the manager and everybody can see where we are heading 

Also I've had the debate with the geordie I work with and even beforehand is of said wilder>Howe

Yeah but what do we have to argue about now¬†ūüėí¬†Perhaps some political discourse will spice things up a bit?

Agree with this. Some stupid and unfortunate goals that we've conceded. Millwalls should never have happened after the elbow, Prestons second was just Bamba giving them a goal - although it wasn't due to bad luck but just poor defending and then the freak own goal on Saturday. We should have had 7 points from the last three games. Hopefully Wilder gets his first hom win at the weekend. When is Fry and Payero back?

With the way Howson, Crooks and Tav are playing in the middle Payero is going to have some battle on his hands to dislodge any of them. Howson looks like he really enjoys this new tactic and getting the ball in the feet a lot more certainly suits Crooks too which I didn't think it would.

Think after the Preston game, the 3 goals we conceded had an xG of 0.13, which should tell you all you need to know about how likely they were lol. Can't imagine it's much higher with the Huddersfield goal.

Thought I read somewhere that they're hopeful Fry & Payero will be good for Stoke in 2 weeks.

I just did a small sample regarding passes. In some of the games I checked under Warnock about 1/4 passes were long balls. In the three games under Wilder it's been between 1/7-1/9 which is a pretty big difference and we are managing a lot more passes in general. And this is just three games in. That's a pretty big difference in a very short time period.

It is a big difference and now we can train more between matches it should get better

Crooks in particular has seen such an uplift in performances so far. He was misplacing simple passes right left and centre and had an awful pass percentage under Warnock. But now we're training passing and movement properly he's one of the best in the team. Could be worth a lot of money in no time.

    • It‚Äôs going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically¬†we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don‚Äôt see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely,¬†possibly not.¬† Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I‚Äôll settle for the playoffs.¬†
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat ¬†- fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.¬† if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.¬† personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
    • Have you heard any names of our¬†transfer targets¬†or¬†which players we're most likely to cash in on? The Gazette seem very keen on discussing Darlow and Lenihan so it seems that¬†there's some substance there.
