We look better in building play without Downing and Clayton...

I'm one of Adam Claytons biggest fans and still don't think he was the problem in our team, but holy crap Mikel is a class above. You can see he's not quite as sharp as he could be, he's a second late to a few things but he already looks so much better than anyone else on the pitch IMO.

I can't agree with you more, Thus far Mikel's forward passing has been on point.

Does it look like he's making a difference? Even watching the highlights from the cup game, he looked like he always got his head up for a forward pass.

Agree. I thought Clayton is a good player but Mikel really is a level above

Yes. I think defensively he's still a little slow, but he's in the right positions, but his vision is incredible, he's calm under pressure. He's making the right passes to get out of tight spots, he's made some good forward passes already and this is just the eye test but it looks like he's having a calming influence on the other midfielders too.

Sounds good to me... could end being a very smart piece of business. How nice it would be to say that for once!

West Brom's passing has been atrocious. I actually think we look half decent today but that's probably more down to West Brom throwing plauers forwards and actually leaving us with space to counter attack.

If I had to nitpick on this first half it's that some of Besic's passing has been off. The IDEA has been right, but the pace/power/direction of the pass is always slightly wrong.

    • My point is that England didn't even look fully comfortable against an awful scratch Montenegro side. The defense has been carved apart repeatedly in these qualifiers, and I'm sure John Stones still has nightmares about throwing away that semi-final against the Netherlands. A lot of the trouble come from needlessly playing it out from the back and inviting pressure. England's attack has been fantastic for a while now, I've not said any different, 33 goals in 7 games is brilliant, but if anything they look less secure defensively since the World Cup. I'd back England against any team at the Euros, but they're currently never comfortable even with a solid lead. They were 5-1 up against Kosovo and were practically hanging on at the end.

    • This day 15th November 1994 - Boro's young guns go down to Ancona in this Anglo-Italian compatition Boro took the lead after 10 minutes then struggled to impose themselves on the game, the youth in the team v experience they were facing proved too much in the end, with Ancona levelling on the hour mark & scoring 2 late goals in the 80th & 90th to put the game beyond Boro
