To be fair I thought we did keep going against Sheff Wed for 20 mins or so but then we stopped. It's not like Sheff Wed suddenly improved either because they were pretty bad in the whole of that first half. It's just that we stopped doing the things that had been working for us and then after half time we continued that whilst they improved and became a bit more direct.

I agree, We do it most of the time when we have a lead, Its not the other team improving, We just sit off them for no reason & let them come on to us.

The only game this season I can think of where we kept going was at Ipswich, Might be more but that's the only one I can think of.

 

If we do it against Derby I think we will drop points just like the first game.

It's not fair to say we feel the job is done when we go 1-0 up because the whole team work their asses off for the entire 90 mins defensively and we certainly have earned all the clean sheets we've gotten. Certainly the attacking intent is reigned in when we go up though. But Who's to say that if we had pushed on in some of those games we wouldn't have got caught out defensively and dropped points and be sitting no longer top of the table?

 

Trust in what the teams doing because it's working.

Well said NB4. Especially the last part about getting caught out. Why take chances when we can shut teams down 9/10 times when we get ahead.

I agree with most of what NB4 and BD are saying BUT holding out for virtually all the game does cause the heart to flutter somewhat and nerves were getting torn to shreds in this game.

 

Ok we do not stop attacking as was shown during the game and we could have had another goal I think we could show just a tad more urgency and desire to get that killer goal

    • If that was the case, every keeper out there would just feign death and fall over whenever the ball was anywhere near their goal and every game would end 0-0 for all eternity.
    • Nice to hear Wilder was complimentary of Leo in saying he has really taken to him. I know people might say people should have a a job on merit and not emotion but with Leo it seems he here on both counts.   I guess its nice knowing there someone in the set up who genuinely has the same passion and love for the club we fans do. And that he appreciated by the new boss as much as he is by us fans.
    • Well let’s hope the weather favours those making the journey and the predicted blank of snow holds off.  I can remember my early days pumped up full of beer travelling around the country to games in the back of freezing vans. The worst I remember was a crammed Luton huddled together in the compartment above the cab trying to stay alive. The spilt beer and urine had turned to ice sending everyone flying every time it stopped, took off or cornered. The only stops allowed were for petrol, or a pub so containers a pipe and funnel were essential equipment.  Although I did hire a new Ford Granda in 1980 for a 1 - 1 cup night match at Portsmouth. Terry Cochrane scored, latter we became good friends, but it was a toxic atmosphere and lost my bother who took off while being threatened. Drove around town until we found him being chased down the street by a few hundred agitated morons. Picked him up on the move but someone cracked the windscreen. I remember leaving work at lunch, drove down and back after the game and in to work next day. BORO mad back then.  
    • I didn't see the problem with it personally, whatever the rules actually are, I feel like it should be a goal. It's not a foul as its a challenge by his own player. It's not a head injury so it doesn't need immediate attention. And you're gonna have a hard time convincing me he's not making the most of that just to stop play anyway. Admittedly, he probably doesn't realise himself who's actually stood on his foot but note that by the time the shot hits the back of the net, there only seems to be one player who realises he's down and is asking for play to be stopped... the man who stood on his foot to begin with.
