I’d imagine it would be Roberts coming in, playing behind Fletch.

Yeah i was expecting fletch to be rested for Rudy. Fletch has started pretty every game all season. Dont recall him being on bench in last 3 months or so at the very least if am not mistaken. 

Thought it would be Rudy and Nmecha up top

By no means a result to be embarassed about. Thought we were much better second half. Subs should have been made sooner in my opinion and their goals were our own fault but we came out after the break and had a go, which is great to see. It's a shame not to go forward in the cup but it is what it is!

Cheers. Dont take it personally but i hope you are wrong this once.

I note EG said today boro are monitoring Maddison situation. Maybe waiting for Randolph deal to go through so to free up some funds. That is me speculating/hoping.

He did, yeah. Big occasion to throw him into. I can't imagine the pressure caused by the early mistakes made him feel much better. Imagine prepping yourself for your first big game, gaffer has told you well in advance, you'd be running that through your head non stop for days. Then Mejias does what he does and the game plan pretty much gets thrown out the window. Can't have been an easy game mentally for him but the fact is he did look lost.

Having said that, I don't think Howson had a particularly good game tonight. Certainly not on par with some of his recent performances. I think tonight he looked like a midfielder playing in defence, so I guess it was pretty on par with expectation.

Howson wasn’t as good as he has been recently but I’d say he deserved a 6. I don’t want to be too harsh on Liddle, what you say is true, but hopefully he can put it out of his mind because to me even his body language and facial expressions showed he didn’t want to be out there.

49.2k attendance. Decent. 

Well played, you were the better team in the second half. No arguments there.

A win is a win and in our current form I will take it. 

The difference between your support and Liverpool's on Sat was like chalk and cheese. Top effort on your part.

Good luck for the rest of the season.

Agree with that re: Liddle but here's the thing, he is 21 not 17/18. You would have thought he'd have had chances before now if he looked good enough and on that showing...he isn't, though playing alongside Wing tonight can't have been easy, he was woeful.

Really like the look of Nmecha, pacy, aggressive and decent touch, think he'll cause problems for Championship defences when fully up to speed.

Djed Spence...well, only a handful of games so far but it's clear to a blind man on a galloping horse that this kid is quality and will only improve.

All in all, a really good 2nd half showing and thought Saville was terrific when he came on.

Contentious topic around the living room tonight: why did mejias squat down like he was having a poo for the first goal. 
I would have thought you’d just gamble and go one way or t’other. Suggestions are his brain was scrambled due to either his error or the occasion, orrrrrrr he’s just ***.

Same with the second one. A bit dodgy on both

I thought Nmecha was a handful for someone not really match fit. Can’t imagine many championship defenders are going to enjoy playing against him when he is fully fit

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
