Didn't follow this game at all today as I was at the Cardiff City Stadium watching them beat Luton. Safe to say I was expecting a little better, but I'm trying not to be too downbeat. 

In other news I saw goals from Flint and Vassell, what could have been..

Introduction.  Welcome to BearSmog's first matchday thread of the 2019/2020 Championship season. I must warn you, if you are not a fan of GIFs I recommend you look away now, the opening post of t

Well talk about a day that had so much mixed emotions for a 6 year old lad attending his first Boro game. Whilst his dad waited to pay for the tickets I took Teddy into the club shop coming out £

Ok so before this game I genuinely thought we'd lose or draw which goes against our historically good home record and Brentford's awful away record but we did perform better than I thought we would.

I don't think anyone is seriously expecting us to get promoted this season, are they?

There's a large group of people who expect everything, we have a group amongst our fans who are the most deluded whingers I've ever come across and I have no idea where they get these ridiculous expectations from.

The owner and the manager maybe?

Hopefully the mods take as dim a view of homophobia as most of us on here do, and he'll be gone.

What on earth are you on about, you’re a strange person. Because I live in UAE I’m homophobic? Grow up man

Does anyone think Coulson needs pulling out yet? 

I don't think so. He looks really lively and seems to recover well when he loses the ball or makes a mistake. I felt a bit bad for him today. For example the balance of the team looks slightly off. I feel like Howson got a lot more cover from Johnson than Coulson got from anyone in front of him. I think it just need a little tweak to help him out. Maybe Fletcher a bit more out wide or a midfielder coming across more when defending. It was similar against Luton and I think teams are picking up on it a bit at the moment.

Saw coulson at a Cambridge game (v Newport) and he was no standout in league 2. Not to say he has not developed, but I do worry if he is our only option.

We signed Bola, who’s a LB, couple more games and he will probably be starting

Woodgate talked recently about a first 11 all currently 24 or under that could be playing within a season or two - in that he listed Coulson as a forward.

I wouldn't be surprised, the more I hear him talk about Coulson, if that ends up being where he ends up playing, especially knowing how light Woody thinks we are up top.

    • It wasn't just a few minutes. I'm pretty sure he got more time than Bahamboula did on the pitch for us didn't he? That was someone who seemed to have the consensus of the fans that he was worth a go for the small fee we had to pay. Paterson didn't look influential, he didn't look fit, he was bang average. 
    • Given Warnock's apparent opinions on fitness and his performances in those friendlies, I'm not at all shocked that we didn't sign him and I'm still relatively glad we didn't. He's not setting the league alight every week just as his team isn't and really, whose place does he take in the team? Watmore? Tav? Hernandez? Jones? I'm not sure I'd swap any of those players with Paterson.  Sounds like he was influential today and scored a cracking goal? Good for him. But he's done that before we had the chance to sign him too, not sure why it would change many opinions on whether we should have brought him in. 
    • So any of those players could have been sat on our bench yesterday but instead we only named six subs, including the non-league player who hasn't looked ready for this level, who gets in for no other reason than Warnock signed him.  No wonder they called themselves Warnock's rejects.   It must be utterly deflating to play for this club unless you're one of the favoured ones.  One of the least professionally run football clubs in the country.
