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

    • My point is that England didn't even look fully comfortable against an awful scratch Montenegro side. The defense has been carved apart repeatedly in these qualifiers, and I'm sure John Stones still has nightmares about throwing away that semi-final against the Netherlands. A lot of the trouble come from needlessly playing it out from the back and inviting pressure. England's attack has been fantastic for a while now, I've not said any different, 33 goals in 7 games is brilliant, but if anything they look less secure defensively since the World Cup. I'd back England against any team at the Euros, but they're currently never comfortable even with a solid lead. They were 5-1 up against Kosovo and were practically hanging on at the end.

    • This day 15th November 1994 - Boro's young guns go down to Ancona in this Anglo-Italian compatition Boro took the lead after 10 minutes then struggled to impose themselves on the game, the youth in the team v experience they were facing proved too much in the end, with Ancona levelling on the hour mark & scoring 2 late goals in the 80th & 90th to put the game beyond Boro
