Boro v Bolton (A) 3-0 (Britt (2) Johnson)

Recommended Posts

Another game I've seen with Fry playing another brilliant display and goalsaving block I can't get over how solid he's looked the only criticism fans have mustered for him is he needs to hit the gym he's too lean I mean he's deceptively fast at covering ground maybe because he's so lean?

 

On the ball his touch is brilliant and he always tries to bring the ball out like Stones every game he seems to get better and better to me I don't know what's going on but if he keeps this up his hype will surpass Gibson's I mean Fry makes himself very difficult to get rid of his man marking is as good as I've seen.

We still look a bit one sided as far as threat is concerned. Baker has shown some nice touches and obviously has talent but needs to get up to speed in the champo a bit. Not sure what has happened to Downing tbh, he hasn't played bad but my word he looks like a rabbit in the headlights whenever hes past the half way line. 

 

I'd like to see Johnson on the second half, we need another threat other than Adama and tbh I doubt Adama will last 90 mins.

Clayton and Leadbitter are staying deep like they did under Karanka and they're covering fullbacks while we always complained about the pair of them when we couldn't score they are keeping us tight at the back here which I don't think we would have quite as well if Howson started there. Baker has had some great little touches and moments so far he could easily get us a couple of chances second half. Traore is just too much for every single LB in this league I mean I remember him running through half the Tottenham team at this level these defenders don't have a prayer if he turns up second half in the same mood and Christie stays out of his way he could even get himself a goal as Bolton start chasing an equaliser.

Downing has been a bit hit and miss that first half. Some lovely touches but some daft passes. I'd like to see Bamford on for a bit more movement up front.

 

It seems like we're playing baker higher up and it's not working currently. Too one dimensional in front of the Bolton defence currently.

Just seen the traore run for the goal. Wow. What strength, even fully falling over didn't stop him!

My complaint is that when Britt drifts wide we havw nobody in the box, downing, traore and baker dont have the instinct and leads/clayts sitting very deep.

Traore really needs to learn when to play the simple ball

I've seen that a few times this season, anyone know what it is? It almost looks like a small box between the players shoulder blades under their shirt

    • Listen let’s not beat about the bush here because this IS the defining game that will tell us more about the squad, and NW then any game to-date, period.  Many posters have previously stated we done well against teams around the top, and there is no denying we did take points raising optimism and predictions about playoffs. The playoffs and I think one or two dared predict a top two finish, or was I dreaming, anyway these were based on BORO beating lesser teams. Now here they come because there is no lesser team then Derby. I’ll say it others won’t. Anything but a win should be seen as abstract failure, period. No excuses, no talk about the referee, weather, subs, set up, NW, weather, just a failure and a huge question mark about our future.    I expect a win, I expect us to bounce back from a horrific unforgettable previous game, I expect the players to prove, express themselves, I expect energy and pace, I expect a lot of players to get the monkey off there back, I expect smiling faces at full time.    A win is expected, a win it has to be! 
    • Indeed - that was just a trial to see how clubs would manage social distancing during matches. I'm fairly certain the club would not have made anything even close to a profit on that. Just pulling a number out of the air here, but I'd expect they'd need the ground to be at least half full to see any money after matchday costs are accounted for (stewards, policing and other ground / concourse staff). Might just break even at a third full. But quite honestly 2,000 fans isn't going to be much different from the trial. If anything the club might actually lose more than from having a closed stadium. That said, its a necessary "baby step" towards getting football back to normal. Gives staff the chance to get used to policing social distancing rules and fans the chance to get used to attending matches in a socially responsible way (hopefully). It has to be done this way because there are still too many idiots out there ignoring the rules and causing numbers to spike - even during lockdown (two major outbreaks just announced in Kent).  
    • I don’t think clubs are allowed to offer players new contracts on reduced term. I think that’s why we needed to wait for players contracts to run out in the past before offering them new ones.

    • Roberts surely has to start this game , would like to see watmore given a run about second half aswell . Will be happy with the three points though as derby look a shambles this season
