January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem

Recommended Posts

noticeable that Saville's poorer games are often when Johnson is in team...spends more time trying to bail him out than winning the ball and pushing forward...then gets hammered for the mistake he is trying to put right....did well in the aggro at the end though..looked like he was trying to keep the Birmingham guy from losing it altogether

Saville has been our best midfielder along with Tav in our recent upturn in performances.

Saville wasn't great yesterday but not many were. He has absolutely been much better in the recent run, though, he actually started to stand out a bit which is some progress from where I've felt he's been at for pretty much the entirety of the previous year and a bit of his Boro career. Glad to see it!

If he does go does that mean we need 3 defenders with at least 2 being centre backs? That's a heck of a lot of transfers to see through. I guess we keep Shotton just to see us through to summer.

Leeds had 3 bids reject for Adams, could soon come calling for Britt

Bamford for Britt straight swap.. No brainer for me. 

But would never happen

It honestly wouldn’t shock me if it did, I wouldn’t hate it but at the same time wouldn’t mind us looking at younger/cheaper options. Shankland up in Scotland for example.

I am not convinced they're even interested in Britt, this is purely agent talk to try to pressure clubs on other deals

    • The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Thought I’d go with a western theme as its apt for those cowboys masquerading as footballers) Well this Wednesday the (Once) mighty Boro take on the Dirty Leeds at the Theater of Nightmares. After witnessing two of the worst displays of football against some of the leagues worst performing teams we host High Flying Leeds who seemed to have gotten over their own blip with back to back wins against Reading and Bristol City respectively. Location Fortress Weakness Riverside Time High Noon (It has to be noon somewhere but locally its 1945hrs)     With our own General Custer preparing to pit his wits against a foreign opponent Woody will be frantically spinning the wheel of misfortune and throwing over-sized darts at photo boards to come up with a team selection and formation to ensure we don’t suffer our own annihilation similar to the Battle of Little Bighorn. Can he do it? Personally I think you have a better chance of winning a game of Russian roulette with a fully loaded six shooter   Players Out Boro                Type of Injury                                     Ayala               Shot himself in the foot (Rather than hold the defense together)      Dijksteel          Rawhide (From being left on his ass so much)            Roberts           Pack Horse syndrome (For carrying the team since his arrival Dael Fry          Prolapsed rectum (From seeing what the midfield are up too)   Words From The Head Coach Dipugferw87ft NOT MY FAULT dgg8ggcug THEY DON’T LISTEN suycgduygcdubdu Dhcvduvcducv YOUNG LADS ARE TO BLAME udybdfubvfiuvidfvnnkdn Words from the Assistant Coach I played against Maldini ya know……. Situation   Latest Odds Boro         9/2 Draw        14/5 Leeds       13/20 (In short if you bet £20 on a Boro win, you lose £20)   Uwe’s Thoughts THE BAD --This game is going to be an absolute horror show.  Leeds high energy, pressing and closing-down game plan will turn our disjointed rag tag (but expensive) bunch of misfits totally inside out. The Ugly – The score line could be absolutely anything (Id be happy to keep it to 4 or under) However The Good – If its true that Steve Gibson will be attending the bloodbath he witnesses might be the incentive he needs to pull the rip cord on Woody. Not that I want us to lose as I would (adopt Kevin Keegan voice) Love it if we beat them, but every cloud and all that   A View from the other side No matchday thread as yet but can be found here when its up and running. https://www.motforum.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=1   Important Questions Can Boro get anything from the game? Strongest Team/Formation? Will Woody still be here after the International break? Why do you hate Leeds? Why aren’t people that order steak ‘Well Done’ sent straight to prison?   Over to you guys and girls!!!!!
    • Disappointment and a sense of futility?
    • I actually think he's been pretty good out of position whether that's been RB/RWB or CB, but these last two games he's played there he has been dreadful. 
    • I don't understand why some people can't see it, it seems pretty obvious to me when I watch him.  It's not even like I have a downer on him because he's a midfielder being asked to do something different to what he's spent most of his career doing.  When he's had decent games playing out of position, it's entirely to his credit that he's managed to adapt to what he's being asked to do.
    • Hold on a second, just stop right there please. Rather than pull out the argument crap or the tin foil crap or whatever, why not take the point of view that perhaps people just disagree with you and they aren't doing it to be arsey.  It's getting a bit tedious now mate as you seem to think it's your right to say whatever you like unchallenged. I didn't say his changes recently are up for discussion because they are of his choice.  I never said anything about recent decisions at all. I said the decisions he has chosen to make, those not forced upon him, whenever he made them, are up for discussion and that those changes haven't lead to any improvement.  We can focus on the latest ones if you like but I'd say that's a season long thing, it's not like we weren't making changes earlier in the season because let's face it, we changed dramatically right at the start of the season, before any injuries occurred.  I mean we moved away from what appeared to be his preferred way of playing after about a 135 mins of football - it had bugger all to do with injuries and it had nothing to with results as we hadn't really played any games!   A draw at Luton and 45 mins against Brentford?  He panicked and made changes because he wanted to not because his hand was forced.  So, he can win in this discussion by winning on the pitch, now, then, whenever.  We aren't winning on the pitch, his changes haven't tended to work and that's the issue.  You're trying to turn it into a 'he can't win' scenario because you're trying to defend him.  That's your prerogative just as it's mine to point out that it's ***.  Ok?
