Lewis is in the first year of a two year scholarship with the club. Technically gifted player who is able to play anywhere across the midfield.

 

Scored his first U18 goal vs Crewe (Sat 10th September) when he superbly half volleyed the ball in off the crossbar.

 

Personal thoughts

 

Having seen the player at U16 &U18 level the first thing that hit me was his height. He reminded me very much of former Boro Youth Anthony Peacock. A player who at the time was a massive talent but because of the physical nature of the English game struggled to make any impact.

 

Is defiantly NOT a midget.

watch him at sheff wed best boro player on the pitch .(my opinion) past the ball very well ,put garrity through twice ,also created a move after beating two players with skill ,went for 1 2 with garrity on the edge of box but poor ball from garrity .otherwise maloney would have been through on goal.TOOK OFF AFTER 60MINUTES due to very long lay off.have not seen him on the pitch since????? shame

Sorry lads - hand up.

 

The midget is a comment which I suspect is directed at me but may well be taken out of context.

 

The lads were playing at Stoke who were a very big and robust side. Our lads BY COMPARISON were much smaller. It was like MIDGETS against GIANTS.

 

I've a feeling that I wrote a report / comment after the game describing the Boro midfield as "midgets". I was trying to get across the physical difference in the sides but seem to have managed to tread on a few toes by doing so. So be it.

 

If anyone is still upset, can I apologise ?

my midget comment wasn't directed at you, i believe it was in reference to another convo "argument" powlay was having with some random poster regarding powlays comment that some kid was small, this guy took it the wrong way...must of been the kids dad/uncle/love or something lol aaaaaaaaaanyways

yeah i think i was describing Maloney and used the term midget which didnt go down well with the player and others.

 

I explained i wasnt meaning literally i was meaning in a physical description. He is still smallwe than me, so technically i can call him (and i do) a midget, think he is taller than andre bennett though who...is what a dwarf? :D (the term midget/dwarf doesnt mean they aint good players both are.)

Guys it is nice of you to be so kind and let me off the hook.

 

I've a feeling that we got into some debate about quality and size. We all know that there have been some quality players that were below average height. The ones that spring to my mind are John White, Bobby Collins and Bobby Johnston but younger memebers would perhaps chose Billy Bremner and Johnny Giles.

 

They do however seem to becoming rarer and rarer. Stoke have clearly chosen to go for big lads only in their academy and I had the impression that Sheffield Wednesday are following the same route with theirs. Speed and size seem to matter more in modern football than traditional footballing skills which I find quite sad.

 

It really is what the McMahon and Hoyte debate is all about. The rest of the championship managers will all know that McMahon is relatively slow so their quick left winger will pass him with ease. Mac may be a smart cookie and good defender but a push past and run like hell will defeat him every time

    • For your enjoyment and just to clarify we did not capatalise on their high line, we did cause problems but did not do better with the chances we got.   still very happy with the win
    • I'd rather we signed a permanent keeper tbh but yeah, he's better than anyone we currently have.
    • This day 1974 wembley beckons for the mighty Boro, but...........................  With Wembley on the horizon, home night match under the floodlights, history in the making, one step & it's the sight of the twin towers in the distance League cup 5th round, Man Utd are the visitors to Ayresome Park, a team we have crossed swords with a few times in the 70's Man Utd were always a division higher than us, this time the roles are reversed, Man Utd are the leaders of the 2nd division, with the mighty Boro flying high in the top tier Boro must start favourites in this tie, especially after defeating Liverpool at Anfield in the previous round 1-0 with a goal from the late, great Willie Maddren A massive attendance of 36,005 seen a good cup tie with Alex Stepney playing a blinder in the United goal to be the score at 0-0 & a replay at OT Big Jacks team Jim Platt Peter Creamer - 1st league Cup start game for the Boro Frank Spraggon Graeme Souness Stuey Boam Willie Maddren Harry Charlton - Harry's penultimate Boro game John Hickton Alan Willey - 1st league cup start for the Boro Alan Foggon David Armstrong Sub Malcolm Smith - Last cup game for the Boro      
    • Indeed there was nothing in that performance today that was anything like we want to play on the regular and I believe Wilder acknowledged that after the game too. On that front, I'm not worried yet. But I just don't see why it's so poorly reflected onto Daniels in that respect, not today at least. Those stats might not read well to you but I guess the way I'd put it is, in each individual circumstance, I don't remember many times that I disagreed with his choice of pass? So maybe those stats aren't what we want to see every game but today? Meh. Our opponent today was the first one I've seen under Wilder that played to win and tried to put significant pressure on us across the pitch and they piled on even more in the second half. They had the midfield completely locked down. After the last couple of games where the likes of Howson and Crooks have stood out, today they were almost nonexistent from a possession standpoint. It's because of that that I actually think we intentionally tried to play more direct today to try and counter the risks they were taking and the control they had in midfield. And to be fair, it worked. One ball from defence to attack leads to the goal. Pressing must have felt like a nightmare today too as they really play to kill your press before passing it into a better position but we still got a few opportunities from that too. I think today was a sign of us having to adapt to win games different ways based on the situation in front of us. I don't think it's a sign of things to come because we won't play a better side at keeping the ball than Swansea all season. I can accept the way we played today, not just because we got the result but because we've already seen this isn't the way we'll want to play every game, I believe.
    • He made 29 passes today, 26 were long balls. 11 of those found a Boro player.  It's not good enough for the style of play we've wanted to impose and he needs replaced in January, simple as that for me.  Don't get me wrong, I didn't expect us to have a lot of the ball today, Swansea have been working on this tactic for a lot longer than us. I did expect us to be a bit more composed at the back and control the game a little better than we did though, and a big part of that was the frequency with which the ball went back to the keeper only to be pumped back to the Swansea defenders to build another attack. It was essentially a Warnock performance without the man marking and with better pressing off the ball.
