Seriously, does Cranie not realise Dyer has a touch like a rhino? Lost count of how many times I've said close him down. He's given them a good 5 yards space to think about what to do, no wonder they keep going down that side. He's had a poor game.

Yes they did. If we speaking in relative context of the midfield three. Leadbitter and Besic at least got their foot on the ball. Off the ball they closed players down. I really couldn't tell you what Clayton did on or off the ball. Don't get me wrong none of the three had a good game but Clayton was a waste of a shirt.

 

Closed who down???  Leadbitter hasn't been able to close people down for about 2 years ffs!  He's constantly off the pace and the only reason he gets away with it is because he's the skipper.   He did nothing on or off the ball mate and he's probably the least accurate passer out of all them, which is saying something when you look at who the competition is.  I think you'll find he's behind the other three midfielders on most stats this season, which is pretty easy to see just from watching him play.   Yeah, none of them were much good but Clayton at least had an excuse, which the other two didn't.  I would have loved to see Leadbitter trying to do the same role, he simply wouldn't be capable of it.  Besic to his credit has looked decent for us but against Wolves I thought he was poor, better than the other two but not as good as he has been.

Boro gone 4-4-2 looking more dangerous according to SSN

 

Is that not the same as Pulis admitting he picked the wrong team? Now drag Leadbitter and Downing off, put on Baker and Harrison and give us a chance in the second half.

Howson injured?

 

No. He’s not negative enough for Pulis.

 

Aye so negative taking a centre mid off for a striker  :sleepy:

 

No. It’s negative taking our most forward thinking midfielder off and leaving two more defensive on.

I saw him clatter Afobe(?) to stop him breaking through on goal. Pretty crucial interception in my book. we're splitting hairs but regardless Clayton can have no complaints over missing out.

Maddo on the radio saying that he's "blown away" with how bad that first half was.

 

Also saying that the players look like they think they are on their holidays already. Pretty shocking, given that it's a seven game shoot out now.

Clayton was asked to play a role that doesn't suit him and was poor.  Leadbitter was asked to play his usual role and was poor.  I think Clayton can have at least one complaint over missing out.

Was very annoyed with our efforts against 9 men but this takes the buscuit

 

I honestly thought after that Wolves game we would get a reaction today, but honestly it goes back to what i said even when Monk was here the players have been told by someone I think they are the best in the league and they believe that delusion so dont think they have to work for it. This stinks of the players thinking they'd rock up and turn these over.

    • Yeah it’s not the same scenario as your Aunty Doris that lived in sheltered accommodation in Redcar with just a portable tv a fan heater and a pile of Gardner’s World magazines for company, that pines for her recently departed husband, complains about the food and doesn’t get on with the rest of the residents, especially that Maureen who drinks Campari on Friday afternoons and insists on being a member of every club and committee going. 
    • I wonder how many goals will be Djed Spence's fault today, and those that aren't, still are 🤔😭
    • I kind of feel sorry for him too, he's been sold the vision with his contract under Woodgate, sold as part of the future of this club. And I'm a big Hayden Coulson fan, I'd definitely prefer it if he could show what he could do as a left back as I think he'd have a better chance of making it here. But in a team filled with inconsistent plodders, you don't take out one of your brightest lights to accommodate someone else. Last season the shoe was on the other foot, we weren't gonna drop Coulson for Bola for the sake of it. If he's gonna play for Warnock, he's got to find a way to make himself useful in a team with Bola in it. James Husband had the exact same issue when he was brought here, he had to find a way to make a name for himself with George Friend in the side, he didn't do that so he had to leave.
    • I'm already like many of our players...thinking of Summer holidays, (staycation obviously). I'll be watching these remaining games more out of idle interest, than any real hope or expectation. I'd like to see Coulson given some games, along with any promising U23s, just to see how we play with some different names in the team. Obviously (hopefully?) it'd be good for team morale if we won, or got a result of any kind, but I won't be that bothered if we help Barnsley's play-off bid.  
    • But the point is he's not gonna get played there because the player in that position is actually playing well? Unless you want us to play 2 left backs to accommodate him?
