*** poor decision again from Fletcher. Why don’t they think?

Been wondering that for ages. We always seem to go for Hollywood passes, or try to pass through a wall of players...or go it alone when there is someone better placed.

And thats without our tendency to pass it around the back when the opposition are pressing and looking to nick the ball.

Our decision making is atrocious most of the time.

What is wrong with us tonight 

We actually played well before the penalty. Score that and we are cruising.
 

Instead McNair misses, and our best attacking threat gets injured, they score, and then our only CB gets injured.

We've been pretty poor first half. Big improvement needed. We look tired tbh. Couple of injuries haven't helped

I turned the radio on to hear we had missed a penalty were 1-0 down and had lost 2 players to hamstring injuries. Fair to say I turned the radio straight off.

The atmosphere is flat as a fart and I really don't think it's helping. This really has been one of those 'If it can go wrong, it will go wrong' nights. We're just lucky Birmingham are not very good. Great ball in for the goal aside, that is. But then we do just keep letting them have the run on us down the left side.

Thoroughly blaming whoever is on the PA in place of Mark Page tonight, generated absolutely sod all in the build up. #FreeMarkPage

Nothing against Wood when I say this but he's been our main substitute defender for over a month now most people know he's not 'there' yet but Jesus Christ it's a miracle this hasn't been exposed earlier as maybe a serious problem beyond our injury list?

That decision to recall Stubbs from a successful loan spell then loaning him out to Pardew is looking curious right now as Fry's stacked onto the injury pile and all we have left to play next to the 2 midfielders is young Wood.

nigel pearson.......missed opportunity there i think. However poor old Woody just going 2 steps forward then 5 back..a run of 5 good games and now it seems that confidence has gone again since the spurs game. It just cant seem to get it right..injuries aside.

The players look absolutely shattered. Don't want to pin it all on that but the fact we've had 2 injuries in the opening half does not bode well. Fry's in particular looked like a muscular injury. Desperate for a defender.

Just everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. Lets just get it into the 10 day break and regroup.

Think a lot of this can be attributed to how many games our small squad has had to deal with in the last month.

This 10 day gap until the next game will do us the world of good. Will also give us time to try and bring a few extra bodies in too. Hopefully Fry isn't out for too long, as he's our only "fit" senior centre half.

Wing needs to stop going for bizarre first touch passes when a simpler pass would do.

If we sacked Karanka in January and hired Pearson he'd have kept us up I maintain it now as I maintained it then, history's different who knows where we'd be I'd that 1 change happened I believe it would have been significant for us. I'd suggest higher up myself. But we always treated Pearson as an afterthought when picking managers the most bizarre overlook we've made in recent years for me. His Leicester team was the best Championship side I've ever seen they were a machine even hiring Pearson after Monk but I guess the ships sailed on it all now.

    • The changing of formation isn't the problem with Woody. I can understand why he has played both 4-3-3 and 3-5-2 for various circumstances. However the players constantly look totally lost and there is zero cohesion in what we are seemingly trying to do on the pitch. There is just no improvement at all like the players don't know what is expected of them. It looks like he's just sending them out to play 10 individual games. And it's everything from pressing, marking and attacking play. It's just completely random and it's very evident that he hasn't got the tools to put his points across - or simply doesn't have a clue at all. I'm leaning towards the latter.
    • If you've read the full article, and I'm sure you have, it feels more like he's just giving the answers people want to here tbh.  He talks about us needing a change in mentality and that you need to know how to fight.  Then later on he says that Barnsley didn't want it more than us but that we lacked quality and decision making.  He's contradicting himself although I don't think he meant to, he's just not a public speaker, he's a footballer being hit with questions after a disappointing defeat and he's trying to say the right things.  
    • Inspiree by the red bull conversation  and I'll admit looking at Wolves with envious eyes the thought that if we had allowed Mendes more involvement that we could be doing it instead of them upsets me.  Time and again when I bring this up I get the arguement of the soul of the club, heritage and identity. So what are they? I have been  boro fan for 40 years in that time we have had 2 stadiums, been  team of local boys, the Spanish ramada, spl lite, home of mercenaries. Had countless managers played every formation and style under the sun and an ever changing kit. So what it is about boro what is our identity?
    • Please, someone tell me this is true, and Warnock is here to rescue us from an unmitigated disaster if we get relegated.
    • You didn't though, I wrote 2 paragraphs on how the changes unfolded and how people commonly discussed how he needed to make changes early on whilst some are now saying he shouldn't have changed. You said his changes recently are up for discussion because they are of his choice and we aren't improving and I literally never denied that. I'm saying it's doublespeak to both criticise him for doing and not doing something referencing the same points in time and you've changed that into a discussion about how we can criticise his changes like I've said nobody can... I can only conclude you simply want to have an argument with a fence post at the moment.
