Isaac Fletcher hat trick,  so who were the stand out players?

Any close to the first team squad?

I've been wondering whether Burrell might get a look in this season. Seems to score a bucketload for the U23s, has professional experience already and we could use the numbers..

Isaac Fletcher is only 18, where did he come from,  must admit I'd not heard his name previously?

Yeah this Tuesday against Bristol we are on red button.  I think last year Gibson tried to stop us being on red button as impacted fans attending. However that doesn't matter this year

Wonder if there will be better streams around then

Got a nasty injury whilst with the u18s so missed most of his time with that squad. Doesn't seem to have hampered his development!

Agreed, the penalty save was fine, it was a decent height but a good save, but the rebound, oof, need to be scoring that!

@Smogzilla totally! They had 4 or 5 other chances that I thought for sure looked harder to miss!

6-0 win and complaining about a miss. We have the most negative fans in the world.

Haha, I knew someone would say that 🙂  I wasn't really complaining though it was just incredible that he couldn't put the ball in the net after the rebound. The rest of the goals were quite good though. I especially liked the number 2 goal.

I'm in Plymouth so I'm hoping so,I won't be making the mistake of following the other team for several minutes thinking we're gonna get battered here,Then realising we were doing the battering...Well I am thick...I do buy the Home and away shirt every year to help out

    • Oh dear mate. I have some bad news to tell you about Friend 🙁
    • With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With match fitness a question mark over both I would guess he would rather start with them and then plan to take them off when tiring rather than maybe having to put them on early as a Sub if an injury occurred. Warnock seems very protective of his players and the risk of them picking up injuries which is why I think he may start with Roberts and Watmore as it gives him more in-game control. The obvious choice would be if he started with those that finished on Wednesday night but I suspect he will want to keep morale high across the squad and keep faith in Watmore and Roberts knowing that he can fall back on Johnson and Spence. Whatever he goes with he has my confidence and trust which is something I don't think I have felt about a Boro Manager in a very long time.
    • I think its either Bettinelli's agent trying to rack up interest (which is his job in fairness)  or lazy journalism or more likely a combination of the two. Dimi had an incredible record here for clean sheets in a season but it was a similar story to now with the organisation of the defence resulting in the Keeper having little or nothing to do. No disrespect to Dimi but he was hardly the most athletic or agile Keeper I've ever seen in a Boro shirt, although no worse than the medal bedecked one who came in after him which proved how playing behind a good team can make a keeper look great. Most Keepers would do well behind the current Red barrier in front of them. Bettinelli's vocal skills does add to that sense of impenetrability probably as much if not more so than the actual amount of work he has to do keeping shots out. Decent keeper who I would prefer to stay but I would be more concerned about losing Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola, Friend, Howson etc.
    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
