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

Eh?  You mean only today's games I suppose.  If you go by even more recent form then we won our second half 2-1, and Spurs won theirs 1-0, so that means we get a draw.  Even more recent form than that if you only include injury time then we won 1-0, and Spurs drew 0-0, so we get the win.

Very logical explanation which makes perfect sense.

Dijksteel had a bad game but is still top 3 most important players for us 

Bails us out of so many situations the role he plays, similar to kyle walker in a back 3

Was really annoyed earlier, first half Barnsley just looked like the wanted it more and we played poorly to add to that.

I'm sure next league game we won't play that poorly but that doesn't excuse this performance.

One thing I'm majorly concerned about is Lumley, Wilder seems either incapable of dropping him or unwilling too, it's so stubborn when in half our games he costs us points with basic mistakes. Next season if he doesn't bring in another keeper and perists with Lumley I would no longer want him as our manager.

His pace on the recovery will be needed v Son and Spurs attack so dont expect him to be dropped. Plus Wilder will want all back 5 to play to get they confidence up.

I don't know if I'd have him in our top 3 players.  In fact, I think if we'd managed to sign Clark from the Geordies then he might have been the one who lost his place over time.

Didn't watch the game today .. But I just watched the highlights .. 

Poor defending and very poor keeper .. 

That last goal .. omg .. 3 sheep and a bull could run through Lumley's legs before he would react .. Very poor positioning of the body .. 

It's vey clear that the attacker sees the gap .. and just places the ball between Lumley's wide open legs ..

Totally agree with this CT. Had we signed a left footed defender (Clark as you mentioned) then surely Paddy would have switched to the rigjt hand side and Fry in middle.

I still think Dijksteel position in starting 11 is at serious risk next season regardless of what division we are in given we will surely bring in a left footed CB and he most likely to make way. 

Dijksteel will be good cover though as he can play RB and CB so will essentially offer the cover Peltier now does who I suspect will leave.

Sorry we need to endure this again to debate the comical aspects and enforce some comments already made on the thread.

Don't like to show this but goes both ways, rough with the smooth etc.

If only that Balogun strike had gone in. Would have been a lovely goal

You could apply quite a few if only's of late, if only Boro tried earlier to play a game with higher intensity, if only defenders did not have mares at the wrong time, if only Lumley could have saved the second goal and not practice star jumps for the third!

Need to adopt a attitude of getting the first goal ourselves especially away from home

    • 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.
