Middlesbrough v Huddersfield (Away) 0-0

Recommended Posts

Nothing but a win was good enough tonight. Nothing has changed. Players are lead by the manager. The manager is not up to it.

Part of me wonders is the coaching staff impacting the confidence of the players or is it soley down to players being crap? 

Defensively we still look shambolic and it seems that many of our players don't totally know what roles theyre meant to play

We are so snakebitten it's unreal, nothing goes in for us. Just need one to go in off a butt cheek or something. I thought that the last two games have been much better played, we just can't hit a barn door.

Fulham will have a field day

Tbf if fletcher didn’t have butt cheeks for feet we might have scored 🙂

We can’t score, and we haven’t shown we can all season. 
Feel for Woodgate tbh. 

We need to get a striker in in January. Someone nasty who’s gonna annoy the defence and get stuck in, hold the ball up and challenge for headers.

sick of us having strikers who play on the edge of games, and are to nice to play against.

We could have played for a week and not scored. We'd still be pinging balls over the bar from cm's out and fumbling on the ball instead of shooting. 

Worried for saturday

Let's be honest, our lack of goals is not down to bad luck, it's sheer poor finishing and nothing else. Luck changes and evens itself out over a season, poor finishing doesn't.

We deserved to win this game, no doubt about that. We had the chances to do it, no doubt. We absolutely need to take the chances we have created, that's the difference between 1 and 3 points tonight.

Still need to improve. No offence to them as they worked hard but Huddersfield were not good tonight. I think in some ways whilst I want to be positive, this wasn't as good an achievement or performance as the West Brom game as I just don't think we needed to play the defence we did tonight, Fry wasn't needed in that game. Tough game at the weekend, I'm off on holiday for a few days after so would be nice to go away with 3 points. Going by their result tonight, a win would be terrific on paper.

I thought it was a decent performance. One positive was young Pears. Didn't have much to do but what he did have he did competently, although his kicking needs to improve.

The club have said don't expect any big spending in January but if they could find a decent striker then I have no doubt the effect of someone actually providing an end product would have a positive effect on the whole team,certainly enough to finish mid-table.

The striker in question doesn't have to be an expensive world beater, just someone who is better than what we have would do, can't be that hard surely.

This team is definitely better than its current position and state of play. I’m pinning a lot of the blame on the management because I don’t think they have a clue about what to do.

Defensively we were fine today, very little to concern us, we were okay against West Brom. It's not the defence I'm worried about after the last 2 games for sure.

I think the confidence naturally falls when you're in the position we're in. It's a tough job for any coach to turn around but I'd absolutely be testing their ability to score in high pressure situations in training.

The buck stops with the manager, period. 

always think thats daft, if a professional striker misses an open goal from two yards its his fault. also dont know what woodgate could have changed this game. there was no luck.  another day we score 3 today.

    • 1.       Did Sunday’s game make you wish you’d never got into football in the first place? No, but it was the lowest I've felt after a game for a long time, probably compounded by lockdown etc  2.       Since we lost the last game, should we be expecting to win this one? Yes, NW will have them firing and I think we'll see a performance similar to the Forest game. 3.       Can you name eleven fit Boro players and put them into some semblance of a formation? 3-4-3 Bettinelli Mcnair Wood Bola Spence Howson Saville Coulson Roberts Watmore Akpom 4.       If we could resign one Boro player from the last ten years, who would it be, and why? If we could resign someone at the same age/condition we signed them initially then i'd say Leadbitter. I think he'd thrive under Warnock and bring some much needed leadership. If it's someone who's still in the game then it would have to be Traore. 5.       Have you been in an accident in the last five years that wasn’t your fault? No.
    • 1. No, but it completely ruined the match for me and I'm still angry now. 2. It's a game we absolutely should be winning, but then so was Birmingham, Sheffield Wednesday etc... 3. Bit worried about Wood likely starting after his performance yesterday, but I expect he'll be better prepared this time. 4. Traore, he'd tear this league apart. 5. I actually don't think I have!
    • It seems most January windows end with Gibson having a call to make on what he wants to do. I hope we have a Jordon Rhodes/Ramirez week rather than  a Gestede week.
    • I think I will still be in shock and disbelief about the last game till after this game, regardless of whether we win or lose. 
    • 1: No, but I was close to vomiting. 2: Yes 3: Bets, Hows, Wood, McNair, Bola -- Morsy, Saville, Watmore, Roberts, Britt, Chuba 4: Bamford - He is what we need at the moment .. Someone who can finish and make it look clever at the same time. 5: No accidents
