The defence isn't dodgy, it's one of the best in the Championship, although clearly far from perfect.  They had a bad day today though.  It's bizarre that so many people can't seem to differentiate be

Can we open up the summer transfer thread as quite frankly the current squad of players is just not good enough to play the way Wilder wants, and then at least we will have something to talk about for the rest of the season. Shocking performance that by a professional squad of players

Anyone remember the good old days when we didn’t concede in the first 15 mins of games.  …. I miss those times😢

connolly though. hes never going to come good is he. panic swings every shot he has. terrible player. atleast balogun looked a bit better. our forwards as a group must be worst in the top half of the table.

You're forgetting the Boro factor - you get nowhere against Barnsley and then squeeze past Spurs.

Diabolical, but once again Lumley cost us points in the end. Been saying it all season, he'll cost us promotion

He scores as many goals from open play as our strikers. Of course it’s his fault, the stats prove it.

Dijksteel was woeful in the 2nd half, not sure what's wrong with him. Looks good going forward but is without doubt the weak link in the defensive 3.

 

Bit of a stretch to say he looks good going forwards, either.

Dijksteel, Lumley, Taylor - most important 3 players that need replacing in summer.

After that, Howson should be let go, and we need a better CDM to replace him.

I'm not even going to comment on the strikers because it's Boro, we could have a front 3 of Henry, Shearer and van Nistelrooy and still somehow fluff every chance.

Agreed. He is without doubt the worst Boro keeper I've ever seen...even worse than Bettinelli (I never saw Andy Dibble play).

Doesn't help that our defence is as dodgy as a £11 note but even with our defensive mistakes, a competent keeper would have saved a couple of those.

Hats off to Barnsley. They just wanted it more. Totally bossed us in the first half. Second was slightly better from us but was still painful to watch. 

Its frustrating but sometimes we have remember how poor we were under Warnock.

CW must take some blame Boyd-Munce should have been on instead of JLS at the start

Yeah Boyd-Munce looked bright when he came on, JLS was abysmal

    • I just don't think we can criticise the man management here without being privvy to the conversations behind the scenes. You don't know if those players have made the decision to not train with the side. It does now seem like an error not to have him involved earlier, but that's with hindsight and without the benefit of the full story. so... Just one of those things for me, no one should be getting particular criticism for it. 
    • I don't know whether I'd be shocked or not to hear Akpom is on that much. Shocked because I'd be surprised we spent that much at that time on a single player's wages but also not that surprised because this club has wasted all kinds of money on wages. I don't get the feeling Wilder would have taken one less player on his pre-season because he had higher wages, though, if he thought he was a good player, particularly given the striker shortage. I can't see the club being very bothered about one year of a £20k deal either (so much as to block Wilder from using him), it's entirely dependent on whether we could actually sign better for less than the £1m in wages we would have committed to that player and that £1m was unlikely to be recouped entirely because who else would pay £20k a week for him? We'd be paying some of that and it would likely have been another loan deal. I very much believe Wilder didn't want him here and it's only as the window has continued to move at a snail's pace that he saw fit to bring him back into the fold. I don't think many Boro fans would have wanted Akpom to stay either so it's hardly a surprising situation that the manager wouldn't, it's just I'd expect the manager who is paid to get the best out of our squad not to dismiss a player he's ultimately never seen anything of in training, especially when he's under contract. Now it seems like he sees some value in him. Perhaps it's not his perfect striker but he's contracted at the club and at a time when we've struggled for forwards, a full pre-season could perhaps have helped us start the season better. In a perfect world, Wilder would have had his other targets in and Akpom would be gone but you know, baby and bathwater and all that. Feel like that's one of my favourite phrases at this point.
    • Prediction for the Week: Hoppe and a midfielder on loan. Feel we need 6-7 signings to compete and have enough depth for January. LCB, CDM, RCM, ST, ST, ST at a minimum. Ideally another LCM and a creative wide player to rotate with Giles & Jones. Personally, I'd move Bola & Watmore on if we get offers of 500k-£1m.
    • I disagree. Part of the pre-season is to build the team bond. If you have people who aren't wanted, they most likely won't really be the happiest campers around the rest of the team. That makes them slightly toxic, I'd guess. I would think that Akpom was very much hoping for a move, as were the club (big wages for a player who isn't in your plans). From Chuba's point of view, his only time playing here was for a manager who didn't play a game which suits him. If moves fell through, then maybe it started to make more sense to bring him in for a short while to build up numbers. After all, he's more likely to play than Uche. Does seem like our recruitment was maybe more forward thinking in selecting him than we've been giving them credit for.
