Boro V Millwall 1-1 (McNair)

Recommended Posts

I’m worried that Woodgate is saying we need 5 players in Jan. he knew that in summer but Gibson still pulled the plug on a couple of loans. I’d imagine one or two in Jan max. 

I think Woodgate needs to be braver and stick with Djiksteel and Bola/Coulson and move Howson into the middle. Howson has played well at RB but we’re wasting or best midfielder playing him there. I know Djiksteel was injured yesterday but I still think he would have been on the bench if fit.

I don't think we are wasting our best midfielder playing him at right-back but then I didn't really see the Blackburn game, isn't that the only game he's played in midfield this season? I do like Howson as a midfielder but I think McNair and Wing are better options in the further up roles and I'm not sure about him as a holding midfielder.

I think we'd be wasting our best right-back so far by playing him in midfield when we've got enough other options in there. Think the competition should help Howson maintain his level of performance and allow Dijksteel to push him for the spot. It's just a shame we're out of the cup already but I still think Dijksteel will get his chance, it might just mean dropping Howson altogether for a rest. In those situations, Dijksteel needs to be ready to come in and stake his claim for the more permanent spot.

    • I always found this crazy it would be £10 you switch your VPN on it's suddenly £5 🤯
    • Thank you as always for the info. When you say there are 2 lists of 8 or 9 players. Does that mean we are looking to sign 8 or 9 new players?  Probs make sense if 5 out the 7 out of contract players are leaving along with a handful of loan players.
    • Do you believe any of the other out of contract players will be offered a new contract if we stay in the Championship? 
    • Whilst the noises from inside suggest Ayala will play I still dont see it... Leeds have stepped up there interest along with Fulham and Crystal Palace. Gibson not allowed to play etc and Djiksteel prob wont be seen until next season. The club are actively pushing ahead with targets... 2 lists around 8 or 9 players on each list dependant where were playing. Also Everton have asked us to keep them up to date if we sell Fry. The feeling behind the scenes is he will move on and money will be used to strengthen in the summer whilst helping balance the books. Howson will only sign once were safe. Other things going on but nothing set in stone. Once it changes in will share.
    • Boro weren't on the red button for quite a while, honestly. I thought it was a flat £10 for all because they upped the coverage?
