I think he will put the kids back in. I don’t think the crowd will get on their backs as much as if he went for experience and they played like that have been doing. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Clayton back in to steady the midfield and Fletcher up front on his own.
Great thread Uwe...think you've summed up the situation very well. 👍
Can Boro get anything from the game?
Umm...severe rectal soreness?
I see you threw a trick question in there...nice try!
Will Woody still be here after the International break?
Sadly, probably yes. Unless Gibson is actually at the Riverside and hasn't been struck down with blindness.
Why do you hate Leeds?
'Cos they're DIRTY!
Plus Bielsa's a sneaky spying git. That said, I imagine he won't bother for us, after seeing what we were like at Elland Road.
Why aren’t people that order steak ‘Well Done’ sent straight to prison?
I have no idea. People who eat steak should be sent to prison..period. Y'know, since meat causes climate change and all that.
I wouldn't even say the crowd has turned too much, even during the Luton game it was just low and quiet, it wasn't quite a vile or horrible atmosphere for the players. Barring the displays for Grant and Ali, the biggest input from the stands was the ovation Spence got walking round the stands after he was subbed.
I suspect tomorrow will be different if the lads put on the same gutless display. The fans won't accept that against Leeds and Woodgate will feel the full brunt of it if Leeds thrash us because we're not up for the fight.
His team selection after bigging up the experienced lads who've failed to give him anything (and either blaming himself for picking them or just the young players in general on the current position in the table) will be gone over with a chainsaw. If he goes for a similar team again and it fails, I sincerely think it may be the last straw for many and I've no doubt I'll have a few words to say myself.
EDIT: I should say there was relatively significant booing at half time and full time, of course. Just generally during the game, things could be worse.
