Boro v Derby 0-3

Recommended Posts

I’m now convinced the failure is purely with Monk and if SG has an once of professionalism and respect for the club he would step in and end this before it all ends in tears.

I said that before we won the 3 in a row that the true turning point of the club/season and Monk was beating the teams in and around us..leeds and now derby. We ve turned no corner. We all harp on and on about 45 mil spend but we are what we are. Not a bad team but far from a good one

Were done. Never going to be promoted under Monk. I want a new manager.

Will you do one, I'm sick of reading your misery.

 

Tell me what I should be positive about? The fact that we are a laughing stock?

I think he has a point tbf.

 

Despite record transfer spending (did we even spend this much under Robson / McLaren in a single season?) Boro still look distinctly average...and downright ***e on days like today.

 

There are still glaring deficiencies in both attack and defence. The team still often plays like a collection of random strangers picked off the street.

 

I will come out and say it now: I don't think we will get promoted under Monk. Certainly not this season anyway.

Appalling... losing 3-0 at home to top sides in the Prem can be put into perspective... but to be spanked by a bang average Championship side at the Riverside is just awful.

 

Can anyone honestly see what Monk is trying to achieve with this side... lets accept its a failed experiment and move on.

    • The fry incident should have changed the game in our favour and we would likely have won if it had gone in our favour.  However, it didn't and the game stayed as it was - 11vs11. Arguably wood coming on put us at a relative disadvantage due to his current ability Vs Fry's but this didn't cost us the game or directly influence key moments in the game. So we had the same task to do as we did prior to the game and we didn't manage it.  The decision didn't make us miss the chances we had to take the lead. It didn't make us go to sleep for their attacks in the second half. It didn't make us go absolutely to pieces after they scored. We were playing good football until they scored in the first part of the second half, we should have won the game whether the decision was made our way or not. 
    • Its bad enough losing the game in that manner but the squads gonna be threadbare now,lets hope Dijks only out with a 'minor injury', fry will be missing  and Tavs groin injury will take a while to recover from. At least Fletcher is back & Hall soon, Think we need a few bodies in though if we have any hopes a play off place    
    • Spence isn't the real deal at RB, we knew that before kick off. We still aren't sure if he is a decent winger, apart from beating players with speed (but only if the ball is played at the right time). He should have been going wide to receive the ball and put a cross in when he lost possession for their goal. His decision making was dire, trying to dribble past (or through) a packed defence with five Red shirts queuing up for a cross to attack into the box. Losing it where and when in the manner that he did was footballing suicide. Watch Spence then track back (not exactly busting a gut) and to make matters worse he doesn't even get into his right sided defence position. He wanders over, lost,  like a ten year old in the playground chasing the ball on the left hand side. Undoubtedly Howson should have been more alert and probably been covering the RB slot when Spence had gone upfield. Switching off certainly doesn't mitigate Jonny's culpability to a degree but the blame starts when Spence lost possession and then showed no fight to get back nor did his right sided partner Tavernier. We had no red shirts at all on our right hand side. Losing Fry and then having an inexperienced Wood and Spence on the right side of defence was our achilles heel. A predictable accident waiting to happen. I'm surprised that Warnock didn't move Howson to RB when Wood came on dragging Morsy and Saville deeper, pushing Spence up on the right wing and putting Tav in the middle behind Britt. That's three "winnable" games now in recent weeks where we have screwed up the opportunity. Despite the Penalty farce, NW needs to take some responsibility, this wasn't an isolated result (or performance).
    • Howson was marking Armstrong at the 1st phrase of the attack, but he lost him and then was scrambling round when he lost him and ended up going towards Rothwell because he was also ball watching. Rothwell was Spence man. Pause the attack when the ball gets fed into Armstrong and you can quite clearly see Spence is stood marking Rothwell with no1 even close by.😂  Armstrong chance in the 2nd half when he fired over. Armstrong span off Spence and fired over. The are examples which lead to a direct shot, but there was many many more throughout the game but luckily didn't lead to a chance.  You are right, about senior players not getting criticism I agree but it's week in week out SAME mistakes by the likes of Spence which isn't good enough. I couldn't care if they are experienced players or not, if a player is making the same mistake week in and week out, I don't want him in our team. Period!    
    • Shocking post match comments from Mogga who believes he is a boro legend. Doesn't even show any sympathy towards his player almost making Fry blind.
