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

    • Good for you Blanco, hope your bang on mate. 
    • Wing and Tav's shooting last season was excellent from outside the box, not saying they shouldn't be in the box supporting the strikers, but you don't shoot you don't score, you hit the ball well enough and on target the keeper has to do something about it. Its down to confidence Wing and Tav have the ability to cause problems from outside the box, its just one option of many.
