Boro V Derby County 1-0

Recommended Posts

As bad as he was on Saturday his ability (technically) is apparent. He does seem anxious to impress and the tantrum was probably borne as a resault of frustration. I think he needs some proper coaching and managing; in the head and on the field. A full pre season with the team will be good for him.

I think that graphic finally dismisses the myth that he only passes sideways.

Indeed. Many of those passes were backwards so he does have some versatility.

Tomlin hasn't set the world alight for us since he turned up (for which there are a number of legitimate reasons).

 

It's why so many january buys initially look like flops. Not everyone settles at the same pace.

 

You know, maybe I'm the only one who thinks like this. I don't think it was a mistake buying him. IMO there are plenty of reasons to see why he's our AMC next year.

 

Maybe one of the legitimate reasons is that he simply isn't good enough? I have no idea yet whether he is or isn't, I'm just wanting to see more from him. He should be playing 90 mins every game for me regardless of performance as we have absolutely nothing to play for and we'd be better off putting things in place for next season now. He will have a pivotal role next season or at least I assume he will so it's important to know that he is actually good enough.

I can see 13 out of 65 there me old chum. That's 20% or 1 in 5 passes backwards. Not half bad at all if you ask me ;)

Except he's a proven player in the Championship, so that just doesn't hold water to me. It's not like he's some unknown we've just picked up and don't know whether he can play in this league.

Them stats about Leadbitter don't surprise me in the slightest as he was immense against Derby. Me likening to Lahm was a bit far though :p

    • You couldn't really legislate for Hugill scoring a worldy. That said even though we were crap and sloppy, but we should've got a point out of it.
    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.
