2019/20 oneBoro match ratings

Recommended Posts

This is one of those times where I think it's unfair we could rate gestede. 4.5 for 3 minutes of play is cruel lol

I always NA players who play 5 mins or less.

I actually thought both full backs played well and made a few decent interceptions which might have gone unnoticed, whilst Britt was absolutely pants and even with his goal was around a 5 or 6. Shows how we see games differently. And yeah Gestede wasnt given a fair shot so rating him isnt fair.

 

On that note, id like to reiterate I still thing its strange Marv doesnt come over to the left wing at times to put crosses in on his stronger foot, especially with Gestede on.

You thought britt had a bad game?! What didn't you like? I'm really curious because for me that was far and away his best all round performance this season!

I thought Britt was great. His hold-up play and decision making was actually good on Saturday, earned his goal for sure.

This. I also said in the match thread that he was looking to bully their centre backs more than you usually see.

It just seems like nothing stuck with him. He cant play that final incisive pass so always looks to shoot. If he is challenged for a header chances are he will lose out and it almost seemed like for every goal kick he was stood a foot or so forward of where he should be to effectively challenge. We saw a few flashes of his strenghts but nit enough. But his finish was good with a player racing in and on his left foot, and thats why he is in the team. 

I dont want him backing into defenders and bullying them as he is crap at it. I want him to just control the ball, recycle posession, then start making his move. I want him taking a first touch round the corner and getting a shot off similar to his second half move. I want him peeling off in between 2 defenders for a through ball. I think defenders are happier the closer he is to them but when he is on the move his instincts seem very good. 

I know its hard to answer but if he hadn't scored, would you have been happy with his performance?

 

Maybe I am being too harsh...?

Yes I would have...I thought he did basically all of what you described regularly throughout the bristol game.

Same here.

 

I could have understood this criticism of Britt in pretty much any other game this season but I though against Bristol he was very good all round even ignoring the goal.

Think Randolph has got my first 10/10 this season. Those late saves were SO good and SO vital.

McNair and Johnson also score highly, with Fry and Shotton just behind those two.

Boro v Reading 14-Sep-2019

Randolph's near perfect performance earns him the MOTM award.

    • Agree. He is still a bit green. But I think he's acquitted himself pretty decently, considering the circumstances. I also can't understand why Mejias wasn't the default replacement for Randolph. Guess Woody doesn't like him for some reason.  
    • In as much as he played one game against Man United in the League Cup, and in the subsequent defeat to Everton. Pears has already played more English league football than Meijas, and Meijas is 30. There's a reason we started playing an aging Greek journeyman over a keeper we'd signed from Real Madrid, and it wasn't because Dimi was an outstanding keeper.
    • You can't judge any player on 1 game. Pears actually made a good double save when Swansea were only ahead by the penalty. He's also made good saves in other recent games. Check the highlights of the Charlton & Burnley games. But he's young, inexperienced and will make more mistakes than you'd expect from older players. Also, in fairness, its not like he's getting a lot of help from our defence.  
    • Pears is not a bad keeper, he's just not ready for the Championship. Why on earth we're not playing Mejias instead I have no idea, the guy has PL experience FFS!
    • Which is why it is SO urgent that Gibson takes action, sooner rather than later. Bad morale is like a disease that eventually infects everyone. Even the keen youngsters like Spence, Walker etc. will see whats going on, not see any light at the end of the tunnel and start thinking they may be better off elsewhere.
