Boro v Barnsley 3-1 (Ayala,Traore,Bamford)

Recommended Posts

Again Besic does all the hard stuff and then seems reluctant to make the easy pass, instead turning back into danger.

 

He's been EXCELLENT but that's his one flaw as a player atm.

 

Indeed, it happens multiple times every game, he just doesn't like to pass sometimes.

Insane game between Hull and Norwich.. 2-3, a hattrick and 3 penalty kicks

Should be way more than 2-0 but if we keep up this intensity second half I'll be happy.

 

Only going to be one winner today.

Sounds like we're doing very well today, as we should in this game. No surprise given that 3 of the main men have made it into the team today despite knocks.

 

If we start the 2nd half in the same vein, I'd like us to make sure we don't continue to risk those players. But if Barnsley come out with real intent? In for a penny, in for a pound, have to keep them on for now.

I think to be honest, that's kind of the player we've been screaming out for. A midfielder who is so intent on playing a forward ball rather than settle for the sideways one. It's really benefited us. By all means, you want Clayton to be that safe passing midfielder, not hanging on to the ball for too long and supporting his fellow midfielders if needs be. But you want the other 2 to really try and get the ball into the attacking players.

Except he's ignoring forward passes too.

 

I'm not saying he's not making the easy pass as in the 5 yard pass to Howson or Clayton, I'm saying he went on a great run forward and could have either slid in Bamford or gone wide to Downing and he did neither, instead he stopped, turned back and nearly lost the ball, we were lucky that it ricocheted out to Downing anyway. 

 

And as boroie says he does it multiple times a game, he'll make a mazy little run and then won't try and play anyone in at the end. 

 

I'm absolutely loving Besic but it is annoying.

Ah right. Not watching the game today so can't comment on it today. But I haven't really noticed that in other games. He always looks like he's trying to keep a hold of it and play us up the pitch. Once or twice his passes have been a bit short, like against Leeds before we'd even scored and let them in. I put that down to lack of game time in the past year or so though, maybe I'm wrong.

Does Ollie McBurnie have the longest legs or the shortest shorts of all time?

Always have a little chuckle when I watch Shotton long throw his way up the pitch like this.

    • It depends which Boro turn up. We're due a win though. Maybe Britt will be firing on all 4 cylinders this time instead of being as nervous as a kitten every time we play them. There's no crowd to put him off. WE need a long run off you Erimus 74. Do your stuff...      7: For those planning to visit Australia when this Covid pandemic ends Burger King in Australia is called Hungry Jack's, due to © issue in Oz They're both crap but Burger King is less crappy, or slightly superior to Macdonald's, which is more popularly known as Macca's here in Australia.
    • Which Pearson?  Nigel Pearson as manager (I'd rather keep Warnock...) or the Preston player that's just signed a new contract there (was mentioned on here before he signed new contract)? 
    • If we're including loans, did Kalas have two loans with us (or was it the other defender we had on loan around the same time)?
    • Interesting how the gazette are starting to run Pearson articles... 
    • Didn't realise they had started to turn the corner, a few years back it didn't matter what form they were in when playing us we would never beat em, this winless run started in 1974 & finished in 1999 We fared better since but I don't like playing Forest at all, it's always one fixture, Leeds been the other when in the same league, that I look for & hope they're out the way early doors
