Boro V Reading 1-0 (Johnson)

Recommended Posts

We played some really good attacking stuff too and really should have been 2 or more up and comfortable before their late pressure. Definitely a counter attacking team though, 41% possession at home isn't ideal!

See the full backs did alot better today. Was a good move tactical decision to change to 5 at the back. Randolph two world class saves. Hard fought and deserved win.

Great result. For anyone watching the game who was the stand out / poor performers?

Randolph pulled of his customary worldclass saves, Johnson had in my opinion his best game at the club and then Clayton + Mcnair performed well.

Randolph, Fry, Shotton, McNair and Clayton did well I thought

Don't think there were any noticeably poor performers to be honest. If I had to pick I'd probably say Fletcher had the quietest game, but I don't think he was poor by any means.

Stand out performers for me:

Randolph - Three world class saves for me this game, two in very quick succession in squeaky bum time
Clayton - Think this was probably his best game this year
McNair - Mr Reliable, if he continues like this he will win our player of the season 100%
Wing - He started a little shaky but I think Wing grew massively into the game and was really good in the second half. You can tell the confidence isn't quite there in some aspects, one instance in the first half stands out when he had a chance for a first time shot and took a touch and lost the ball. Still, I hope he can build on this.
Shotton - not a single mistake that I can remember from Shotton today, one of his best games by far this year too.

Also a shout out to both full backs, thought Bola and Dijksteel had their best games for Boro today too.

All good news. Pleased to see Bola and Djiksteel are growing into solid performers.

Really good second half. Battling performance. 

Thought Marvin and obviously Randolph had cracking games.

That’s great to hear. Hopefully he will continue to improve and we will have a really good player on our hands

    • 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.
