I'd imagine they won't know fully until tomorrow. From initially watching I think its more likely to be shorter. He seemed to hurt himself, then put a tackle in, tried to play and later walked off.

 

I'd be more concerned if he'd just pulled up.

Right on the nose with your comments Starbuy. What has happened to our midfield closing players down, has the pressure been put on the players by the coaching staff to try and create more clear cut chances leading to Clayton and Leadbitter having to change their usual positions, certainly they have not been as effective of late.

 

I think they are playing more 442 with the 2 CMs sitting further forward. It suited a Forshaw more than the other two.

I feel a lot of people are being a little too over critical about todays match. Okay i watched it in the pub as opposed to actually being at the match, but once we had scored the second goal, i felt comfortable. I wasnt in any doubt that we were gonna lose it from that point, ipswich may have had half chances, more shots and more possession, but i dont think we looked like conceding from that point. Its rare for me to not feel on edge watching the boro, but i didnt today.

 

Sure we conceded a shoddy goal right after our first, but despite the stats, bamford could have had another 2 and we should have had 2 penalties! Pretty good performance from after the half hour mark. Although i do wish we wouldnt hoof it as much.

I try to ignore shot statistics I think a fairer measure of the game is how many saves did a keeper have to work to save? For all the huffing and puffing by Ipswich Dimi didn't have a lot to do.

 

In many ways Ipswich performance today is similar to how we've been playing.

Vossen did well today, He worked hes socks of and set up Bamfords first goal with a brilliant pass..

 

First half he struggled just like the rest of our players apart from Adomah who was brilliant all game.

Second half he was getting in to the game more but then he was subbed but that substitution worked out brilliantly.

 

Imo we must keep Vossen just off of Bamford, Adomah right and Reach/ Wildscut/ Carayol left.

 

Totally agree with all of this!

Despite all of the criticism directed at reach I think he still gives us a great deal.

 

1) balance: a proper balance with players in correct position (Adomah right) giving out team alot better shape

 

2) defensive cover: despite not being the best going forward he always tracks back

 

3) 2nd outlet: like albert, reach isn't afraid to chase a long cross field ball to relieve pressure and build a possible attack

 

For all the negatives people are giving today we still scored 4 past a fellow promotion contender. I'd play the same team every week from now on bar injuries/suspensions.

I'd tend to agree with this. I do think his runs behind the defence have been good and may have potentially got a penalty today after one of them. Although he does frustrate me he clearly has the ability to get past his man as he has proven it yet he has somewhat lost belief in doing so.

Reach is a strange player, he's almost better without the ball than he is with it. Could have won us two penalties today with his runs off the ball and just by staying wide he stretches opponents, however, give him the ball and he'll invariably fall over or give away possession.

    • I think United have been trying to use Henderson when they can since Sheffield United last loaned him, don't think there was a plan for him to be loaned out.
    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there. 
    • Hartlepool, Harrogate, Newcastle or Leeds please. (Away)

    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
