Boro v Luton Town (A) 3-3 (Fletcher, Assombalonga, Wing)

Recommended Posts

Given we still have areas to strengthen - including those areas we struggled in tonight - I'm overall feeling positive. But I'll be cursing that penalty miss for the rest of the weekend.

Once we get the defence sorted out we will be top half. I would have took a point before the game hard place to go to. But Britt should have won it for us so dissapointed.

Well was a good game. Point away on opening day is not too bad. Was there for taking but not to worry. Some good stuff. Utb 

Definitely something to build on I think. A few games in the defence should sharpen up, especially once Shotton is removed from the back line

If we can sort out our defence I’ll be happy. 

Ayala had a good game. Coulson will do well for us. Shotton is an absolute liability. 

I know we were the away team but will be happier if we can control the game more in midfield.

probably only 1 first choice defender playing in Ayala.. so hopefully things will tighten up once Fry is back and we buy an RB

hope to never see shotton in a boro shirt ever again.

 

honestly never seen a worse defender in all my life, he can't pass ,can't defend literally the definition of useless

Annoying ref, blew tons of niggly fouls for them.

Shotton is absolute cack.

Wing is a God. 

At least we were positive. Need some more quality in this team though.  Thought Woody should have made earlier subs to the midfield. Wing looked absolutely knackered after his goal.

As soon as britt took the ball I knew he would miss. I wouldn't be surprised to learn he's missed more than he's scored for us. I love him as a goalscorer but weirdly I don't trust him as a penalty taker.

 

All in all I'll take the point, kenilworth road will be a hard place to go this year. There were enough positives there for me to go away content.

Plenty to learn, plenty to be happier about compared to last year for most, we went for it, we struggled against a team with a lot of belief there clearly. Very early days, I'm looking forward to the first match at the Riverside this season. It could have been worse, draw is probably a reasonable result for both teams given we got a penalty we shouldn't have and they didn't get a penalty they should have (in my view, anyway). Neutral would have loved that game, was pretty much all action, lots of goals, game swung from us, to them, to us, to a draw. Thank God football is back.

After watching this I'd like another CB who could come in as a starter. Ayala and Fry are decent but Shotton was dreadful and I don't want to see Friend there. 

 

Johnson man of the match for me

Britt puts the penalty away Lutons heads would have dropped, shits of a penalty, disappointed we haven't taken all 3 points. We must have a better penalty taker than him. I wish some bugger would buy Shotton.

    • Very,very clever!
    • Yes I can’t argue with that @TLF10 this season is a write off. We need to stay in the championship and try build for next season.
    • Agree @Blanco. Happy to have him if sums add up for 6 months. If we can get him, plus 2 wide players n a striker i will be happy.   Maddison seems to be one of the wide players we want Jack Clarke or someone else on loan and a striker. Someone mentioned Clarke Harris from Bristol. Hopefully signings in Jan can be a mix of maybe 2 permanant signings n 2 loan signings. If its only loan signings in Jan it makes a huge job of rebuilding in summer a monumental one. So if we can start the long term rebuilding with 1 or 2 permanant signings in jan that be good
    • Top work @boro-unger. Great post. I do not expect McNairs red to be overturned and if JW looks at it properly its not even worth appealing it. (Now i said that it probably will get overturned) Think team and subs picks itself given lack of numbers: Pears Howson Ayala Fry Spence Tav Wing Sav Coulson Fletch Britt Subs: Meijas, Wood, Bola, Clayton, Marv, Rudy, Walker My heart says a nervy 1 nil win. Am trying to be positive so i wont share what my head is saying
    • I think bringing Ben Gibson back makes sense. He is a proven performer in this league. Bringing players up from the league below is a risk and we have showed that with our summer purchases.  We need players who can guarantee that they can perform at this level.
