I'm really happy with the point considering everything. I'm at peace with the fact that we're currently nowhere near our full capacity as we're at the first stage of a long-term rebuild as we're lacki

We've beaten two teams who were above us at the time we played them, which we hadn't managed under Warnock this season.  Of the five games we've played under Wilder, four have been against teams above

Who can take a Boro team Who were playing poo Have them winning matches with a miracle or two?   Chris Wilder man Chris Wilder can Chris Wilder he can cause he plays

Well that was a pretty "meh" first half. 

Let's hope we've saved our energy for the next 45. And hope Watmore finds his shooting boots.

Watmore has shown he can not last a full game so he needs to score quickly before he gets replaced

Just gone back to Soccer24HD and something weird is going on.

For starters we are apparently away at West Brom. When you click on the link it shows a video stream for Preston v Barnsley!

Maybe that's the problem!  Maybe he's lost his own boots and been forced to wear a pair of Britty's boots. 

Let's see how many people get that reference, a few should as this place is full of old buggers.

A very controlled performance from us, cool on the ball, no hacking away and tactically tight. On golden chances it should really be 1 - 1, Watmores howler plus a mix up in our defence let their centre forward a straight run in on goal and should have scored. If we are going to release a centre half forward then one of our midfield must learn to cover him, early days though of this formation and we will learn. Nice to see us playing football again and you can understand now why Daniels was dropped after his rugby punts of last week

Well some decent football from both sides but Watmore will be in the top ten miss of the season. Last game he missed a few as well. 
Final decision making has cost us on a few occasions but I’m happy to go in 0-0 and watched some decent football. If come away with a point I’ll see it as a huge improvement and a step in the right direction. 
 
It’s obvious we lack quality but a few good signings will work bloody wonders.

Why you disrespectful young whippersnapper! 

In my day, kids that talked back to their elders got a darn good thrashing!

Lumley did very well with the one on one, stayed upright and spread himself. Slowed up Campbell and gave Dijksteel time for the recovery clearance.

Absolutely SA he looks on balance a better option than Daniels if he can cut out the odd howler, big lad as well he towers over that penalty area

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
