Blackburn v Middlesbrough 1-0


Recommended Posts

Hello Downing. Definitely seems to have replaced Monk as Sky's choice for our matches. Makes sense for this game given that Blackburn were his last club. I'd kind of thought he would go into management, but he hasn't.

Negativity on here is terrible. Playing 2nd place in the division away from home. A tough stop start game. Missed a couple of really good chances which on another day could have won us the game. They

We've missed some golden late chances and not been at our best - but why there is so much negativity on here is beyond me. We're on a great run and playing an away fixture against an extremely tough s

Disappointing result and performance, but nights like last night are standard in the Championship - even for promotion candidates. Even during our promotion under Karanka we had many of these types of

Heard McCoist saying that he was watching the game tonight....it'll be interesting to see what he has to say about Izzy after his comments on Djed.

Edit - this was on talksports this morning btw, not in person 😂

Glad Pears is on the bench it would be typical he has a blinder. Mind you we have a knack in recent years of making the Blackburn keeper look like world beater.

Ayala came off the bench and scored in their last game. I hope he doesn't do a repeat!

Aside from Jones being played at RWB instead of LWB, another noticeable difference in Isaiah Jones under Wilder vs Warnock is that he now gets on the ball far higher up the pitch in more dangerous areas to give his clinical crossing maximum impact. I think this is mainly due to our style of play with the CB's stepping upfield and Crooks pushing upfield to create passing triangles, so that when he gets on the ball, he can often put his crosses in first time. Under Warnock he'd usually get on the ball in far deeper areas and would have to drive at multiple players before he got that opportunity to cross or get a shot away.

When was that? He came on last week when they lost 0-2 at Hull.

    • 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.
