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.

    • Moses..........with our scouts, we would probably end up with the original version........mind you, if he could split a defence like that day by the Red Sea, he would be worth having  
    • Boro this day 18th November 1972 My 2nd ever away Boro game when my dad took me & his ICI work colleague to the Sheffield Wednesday game, my previous away game was Boro's last away game on the 11th which seen us win 1-0, courtecy of a John Hickton goal I remember we went in a pub before the game, I was 12 so drinking soft drinks At the game we sat in the seats that were put in for the 66 world cup took   John Hickton scored a penalty to put the mighty Boro in front, this was his 3rd goal v Sheff Weds in 5 games against them since we signed him from Sheff Weds, his 1st goal at Hillsborough though  The afternoon didn't turn out to good a day for big John, or the Boro fans         Jim Platt saved a 1st half penalty from Tommy Craig, the referee deemed Jim had moved to soon & the spot kick was retaken, again jim Platt was to be successful a 2nd time & dived the right way to save the 2nd spot kick                                                                                Sheff Wed equalised on half time & the 2nd half was one way traffic, eventually we couldnt cope & Tommy Craig, who missed the 1st half penalty, scored a scorcher, I can still see him running away towards their kop with his arms aloft We had led, Jim Platt had saved 2 penalties & we lost 2-1, 2 away games for me, one win & a loss, welcome the the Boro son   Stan Andersons team Jim Platt Peter Creamer - 5th appearence out of 6 that season  Frank Spraggon Nobby Stiles Stuey Boam Willie Maddren Bill Gates Eric McMordie David Mills John Hickton - 4th goal of the season David Armstrong Sub Gordon Jones - Final appearence as sub,  he started a further 8 games
    • So we shouldn't get too excited about this England team despite recent youth injection, attacking style of play, Russia World cup Semi-Finals and a comfortable Euro 2020 qualification because of past failings ?
    • Or Derby would get 1st shout with the connection
    • I can't see anything but a fairly comfortable Denmark win.
