I think he's set up four winners - Bamford away at Derby, Kike at Blackpool, Kike at Bolton and Adomah against Bolton at home.

It's so easy for people to say Tomlin does X and Y wrong. What he provides us is end product in the final third, and for this I am happy *in the voice of Karanka* :D

After today and the  Watfordgame , the general idea a*** Genk-supporters is now that the days for Jelle Vossen at Boro are over...

Well he has over the last few months but before that he was mostly ineffective in that sense. I don't think he does enough personally although he has done more since the turn of the year than he did beforehand and the further forward we can get him with the ball the more effective he is.

Our biggest problem this season has been not being able to play to our strikers strengths. Our build up play just hasn't been good enough on the whole as we've generally been far too direct, so I have a bit of sympathy for the likes of Vossen. Regardless of the we're in next season, we need to sort out our build up play.

Want the most fluid of performances, started with urgency then seemed to go into panic mode even though we wern't really tested by them. We needed to win, we won ... I'll take the same again from the next 4 games too

Oh, just a point I wanted to make, Nsue seemed to play in the Tomlin role when he came on, thought he looked very lively. I feel as though with him covering RB and being away for the AFCON, we haven't really seen the best of him as an attacking force yet. Hope he has chance to make up for this in the next few games.

So im away and have no way of seeing highlights or reading the thread so if some one could quickly sum it up for me that would be great.

 

Cheers fellas

 

Slow, quite patient (overly slow) in the first half, completely dominant but not a lot of cutting edge.

Goal very early second half settled things down, could really have had 4. Smart finish by Tomlin, and very good assist for Bamford to get a second. Forshaw and Ayala both stood out, Tomlin as usual faded in and out but popped up when it mattered. Kike worked his socks off and would have been nice to see him take the penalty. We won't be talking about the game for years, but 3 points, 2 goals, clean sheet, confidence built for Tuesday.

Job done.

It would seem that way judging on recent games I have to admit but perhaps AK is saving him for the last crucial games :-/

It does upset me that Vossen isn't getting game time :( I think a run of games would have seen him become a force.

 

It's a good job I'm a big Tomlin fan as well though.

    • I don't think anyone thinks the performance was good. I'm just not putting much stock into a game I expected us to lose for the reasons we lost it. The best I can say is we tried to do something different to how we played against Millwall, the last time we played a team like this. Between the two games, I think yesterday's loss of points was more down to individual performances than the tactical battle which is a positive for the tactics as much as it's a negative for some of the individuals in the team. Maybe next time, if we pick the right players, we'll get something more out of the game. It's early days, we can be forgiven right now for thinking we have room to experiment and not be too worried whether it goes right or wrong. That's all part of the learning curve.
    • Same story in Tampa  Buccs 18 up at half time .. Now only 3 up and Giants have the egg I hope it will end well, like your Bills 😉
    • Bills completely dominated the Bengals for the entire first half and somehow only scored 14 points. 250+ yards to 77. Gave up 17 unanswered in the 2nd half before a 4th quarter TD drive and a game sealing pick get us the 21-17 win. 3-0 but we should have been 30+ up at half time.
    • Packers now 3 wins in 3. Great start to the campaign. At least they didn't let me down. 😂
