Boro v Sheffield United 3-0 (Braithwaite,Flint,Downing)

Recommended Posts

Wing has been terrific first half. Absolutely spot on. Such a difference between him and Leadbitter being in that midfield.

Well I don’t think any of us expected that. We look so much better in this formation. Hats off to Tony Pulis.

 

Lewis Wing was exceptional. Strong on the ball, willing to drive with it, got his head up, worked hard... absolutely fantastic. How was he not ripping up League 2 last season?

 

Braithwaite’s movement has been excellent.

 

Downing and Shotton actually looked pretty decent as wing backs although if we are going to use this formation going forward I would ideally like a few specialist wing backs. Bryan and Byram would be perfect as someone has already stated.

I hope Tav and Chap get the last 20 or so ...

 

I hope the club can keep the live stream solid for the rest of the match and in the future ..

 

Now let's keep attacking .. DON'T do a Millwall now, boys!

 

Wing is outstanding!

Braithwaite too

Howson isn't as anonymous (cause Clayts and Leadboots arent warming the ball) ...

Simply a joy to watch the Boro today! #UTB

Agree that the stadium looks empty however keep this up and the Brum game will be very different

This. Particularly the hats off to pulis bit. Bravery to change to a system that suits he players, give Britt some company and actually play a creative midfielder. Wing could save us a fortune. I'd honestly rather him than besic, but would rather besic than clayts. Two starting wingbacks could be the only starters we need.

Looks like we've reverted to our regular system with the Sheffield United change. They took a man out of midfield and we've gone back to a 4-3-3.

A bloke on another site is complaining that he couldn't get in with his ST card. Had four goes at re-activating it  but failed each time with the queues of people in a similar situation getting larger all the time. He's at home watching it now and not happy.

 

I wonder how many more didn't get in?

    • If we are to be reliant on Grant Hall then I'm genuinely worried. I didn't rate him but figured he would bulk out the squad with some experience so fair enough. He looked very ring rusty at the start of the season but I hoped that with a few months under his belt he would settle in. Now another lengthy injury lay off and I can't see him returning to a standard that we immediately require. In time he may improve but there is always that risk of a Gestede moment just waiting to happen. If Dijksteel is out we need to switch Howson to RB and bring in an additional CB on loan if we can't buy. The Tav injury I'm guessing will mean some time out for him if it is as bad as it looked. If we go with Watmore on one side and Johnson on the other with Spence/Coulson as back ups we can muddle through if Tav isn't out for long but the thin veneer of the squad is very apparent. The obvious would be to use Roberts instead of Tav especially if we are playing Howson behind him but I think Tav's grandmother has a better chance of getting game time.
    • He’s a victim like many Chelsea managers of the expensive signings not working out! This could be down to many factors but it’s a results driven game so makes sense for him to go.   Lets hope we weren’t after any players from Chelsea as this may not happen now.
    • Frank will be a Premership manager in his next role. I don't think there's any chance of him dropping to the Championship, even if he has to wait a little longer for an opportunity. He's very highly regarded by people in high places. He'd be the perfect fit at West Ham, but Moyes is doing a good job so can't imagine them changing manager any time soon. Supposedly Hasenhüttl is of interest to Chelsea. If so Southampton could be a decent fit. (EDIT: Scrap this last bit. It's Tuchel who's got the job by the look of it).
    • Wouldn't have him here myself at all. Think the fact he was in charge with all those top players flattered him.
    • Yeah, I think Lampard will be after bigger roles after managing Chelsea. I don't even agree with the sacking and I imagine there are clubs around the Prem who will be questioning whether they could have it better with Frank or if the timing of it is lining up well with the way things are going. Bielsa's contract is up in the summer, Bruce seems to be on borrowed time at Newcastle.
