Not surprised with Jones being dropped, but Giles is a shock. Bola should be better defensively though.
The midfield looks slow and ponderous.
I hope Wilder proves us all wrong with this team selection.
At the match last night I was thinking of the last time we won a free kick around the 'D' of the opposition box. It stuck me that I honestly couldn't remember.
We focus so much on creating chances from out wide that nothing goes through the middle. It's so one dimensional and predictable.
I know you voiced your concerns about going tonight Erimus because of the potential for vile chants, just wondering if you'd changed your mind? I'd hate for Boro fans to miss out due to the behaviour of those knuckle draggers.
Absolutely not. Goal line technology is an example of something that works well and doesn't interrupt the flow of the game. It rights the wrongs instantaneously.
VAR takes a wrecking ball to the flow, it disrupts the rhythm, and plays with the emotion of supporters.
As a side note, I believe the Belgian transfer window is still open so they can still sign him. The reason they were pushing to get it done the other day was to get him registered for a Champions League game.
