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!

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.

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

    • Fletcher he has grown on me this season. That said theres been a fair few games recently where he has ball watched or jumped for a header knowing he was nowhere near it. When we had our mini revival though he looked a good player he battled and held up the ball well and could see theres a decent player there. But if hes not on his game hes like a rabbit in the headlights. However I dont see him as the guy who will score the goals to win promotion or save you from relegation which we really need him to be right now. 
    • He was NOT the fans choice. He was Gibson's choice and it was pretty clear before he was appointed that we did not want him as a manger or head coach. Our concerns were completely dismissed then, and are still being dismissed. This is not down to unrealistic expectations. Most have been highlighting a mid-table finish as what should be achievable with the players we have and now simply want to stay in the Championship - both of which would have been realistic under a manger with a basic level of competence.  People gave Woody time (way more time than they would have given anyone else) but that does not mean he was our choice.
    • Who’s knows where we’d be if Roberts didn’t get injured and McNair took away that penna...
    • It’s a loss in the sense that now Coulson will probably go back to Lb.  That essentially gets rid of any pace and attacking threat from the forwards.
