Well...we lost...which wasn't a surprise.

We lost by just the odd goal...which probably WAS a surprise to most (me included).

 

Annoyingly, the players decided to make an effort for this one. On the one hand I want to say, "Well done - at least you tried". On the other I want to say, "Where the *** was that effort against Wigan and Luton?"

I think the best that can be said is that at least we tried. Sadly Leeds just looked in a different league (and soon will be). Their speed of thought, passing, movement off the ball, effort to win it back and just general cohesive team play, was far superior to anything Boro could muster.

We did at least manage a couple of shots on target...which is about 2 more than we managed in our last 2 games combined.

 

Unfortunately, the fact we lost by a narrow margin, combined with a slightly improved performance, will probably be the straw both Woody and Gibson cling to, as a sign that things are on the up.

Me? I'm not convinced.

Apparently has the backing still

I honestly don't see where it stops. Honestly think that Woodgate is bullet proof and Gibson is ready for us to go to league 1 only to deliver some crappy PR rallying cry in the summer about "oh we di

Huffing and puffing but surly this is a team with relegation written all over it. 
I’ll give some credit because the score line is better than I imagined it would be. 
The crowd says everything about the club and the empty seats must surly send a message. Woody is out of his tactical depth and unless there is some devine intervention we are favorite for the drop.

Woody won't go whatever. Both he and Gibson are too proud to admit that it isn't working and Woody is totally out of his depth.

Perhaps it is time the fans left?

With Boro playing Monday this might give Woody a few more days yet due to the "much better" performance

I'm sure this is what Boro are going through right now.

No, we're just ***.

0 shots on target isnt great tbh mate first half. Its nothing new, we have had bright spells in the games we have lost recently

0 shots on target against Leeds is a bit different than against Luton and Barnsley though. It's not great in any game but Leeds' defence individually and collectively are better than Barnsley and Luton.

Final third was rubbish, subs did nothing for us. When you're trying to break down teams you might need something like a Morrison and once again, he remains on the bench. Turning out to be as useless as when we signed Harrison on loan. If he's not gonna play then what was the point in signing him? As soon as we brought Saville off, changed to 2 up front, the ball never stuck, even moreso when Fletcher had to go off.

It is just frustrating as we were in the fight. Leeds had their chances but I don't think it's a shock they only won by 1 goal as we did work hard to try and stop them.

Pears man of the match, followed by Shotton who made some great tackles throughout.

Will the real SG stand up. This is a team that was challenging for the play offs only to be handed to a tea boy and have the lowest goal scoring record and lowest amount of wins. A team who has managed 2 shots on target in 3 games now tell me again it’s all going to plan.

    • @DurhamRedi get that concern but at moment if you look at the possible first 11. We got Dijksteel, Fry, Bola and Tav all under 25. Add to that Lumley and Paddy who are both 26. That is 6 out my first 11 that are 26 or under.  In terms of 30 or above we only really have Howson and Morsy.  And Hall but I dont think Hall starts if Fry and Paddy are both fit. A bit more experience probably wont do us any harm in terms of grinding out results. Fully respect some posters might not see it that way mind  
    • It's more because this is the route I want the club to go down sign players with potential not 30 year olds who are passed their peak. That is the case with Smith and hoillet 
    • Just seen Hull close to signing Dion Charles from Accrington, he's one of the standout L1 strikers in my opinion would've liked us to have a look 
    • If distance is all that matters, then hard to beat this one 🙂
    • Can i ask where the sudden love and appreciation for Mendez Gomez has come from on this board? I seen people mention him a fee times in last couple days especially when not being happy at the signing of Michale Smith. Despite fact ones a winger and other is a striker so am not even understanding the comparison  Did anyone even know who Mendez Gomes was until @diggerlad07 mentioned we scouted him? And now he suddenly this up and coming talent in everyones eyes that we must sign? Reminds me last summer when this board had a meltdown at the club for losing out to Brentford for Charlie Goode and we all know how well he did for Brentford.
