Boro v Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) 0-1

Recommended Posts

New manager, new system, new squad. There was always going to be a good chance we would start slowly and take time to adapt. We defended quite well in general, passing and attacking play was fairly poor but we still carved open a few good opportunities which you'd hope we'd start converting in time. I'd feel more discouraged had I not seen this system be very effective against Augsburg - our passing was slower and sloppier than in that game which I think hurt our chances against Wolves. Just on Wolves I was fairly impressed. They've also had a summer of great change, and whilst they weren't quite an omnipotent threat, they were certainly a slick and organised outfit who played tidy football and on the balance of play deserved the win.

 

I think we really need at least 1 winger. As it stands we don't have the option to change formation and look to play out wide. With Watford playing wingbacks having wingers bursting down the flanks could have helped us to break them down as we'd have the opportunity for our fullbacks and wingers to then double up against them.

 

There's still a long way to go in the season and before the end of the window. I'd expect the squad and results to be further improved throughout the month and set us up for the rest of the season to come. Change doesn't happen overnight, it's a tough, slow, arduous process which isn't always successful. I feel like we've almost got it right and in a few months' time we'll have forgotten all about the lows of last season and laugh at our trepidation for this one stemming from a poor start.

 

We should have had an advantage in our midfield 3 against their 2, but we didn't and whether that's a failure of Howson and De Roon to influence the game or whether it just shows the quality they have in Neves and Saiss, I think it's a bit of both.

 

 

We never really had that advantage in midfield because Jota and Enobake dropped and pressed when we didn't have the ball. They essentially flooded central midfield.

Told you he was good...

 

Grant Leadbitter has made numerous of those passes. Lots of space and the winger was completely unmarked. It was a great pass though.

The thing is when we lose the ball, that's where the space will always be, due to the wingbacks pushing on.

 

It was a great pass, but that's where we'll be exposed from most this season I think.

Now that Wolves have won their first three..... it kind of makes that Ayala sideways pass to gift the Wolves goal even more annoying.

 

They didn't really look too much like scoring otherwise.

 

Having said that, I guess they were missing their best three players. Shame we didn't capitalise.

    • Same team, we've got to hope that they've practiced defending balls in to the box, and hope Assombalonga plays as well as he did against QPR. Wing has been poor all season, but Saville is his only real competitor and has been even worse.
    • That's a joke, right? Like, the joke being that someone had to submit an application form at all, not that it wasn't done. Jen was at the meeting, what more intent or knowledge could you gain from an application form? So some jobsworth at the club can look us over and decide if we're worthy?
    • They make it up as they go along, mate.
    • Ok thanks for that I didn’t know it was practically a done deal 👍
    • It's mostly already decided unless Wales lose to Hungary. "If Wales beat Hungary, Ireland will travel Slovakia for a semi-final, leaving Northern Ireland to go to Bosnia. If Wales draw with Hungary and Slovakia beat Azerbaijan, then Ireland will have to go to Cardiff to takes on Wales, while Bosnia will still host Northern Ireland." If Wales lose to Hungary, then one of Wales, Northern Ireland or Slovakia move to the Group A play-off draw. I presume the other play-offs are done differently if there is a draw.   I read that if Scotland win their play-offs, they're in England's group at the Euros, which would be interesting to say the least.
