    What on earth has happened to Jones the last 10-12 months

    I understand why Smith is currently in the side but Djiksteel would give us a double threat down the right and would link up well with Jones. I think Jones confidence has taken a knock and he is almost trying too hard.

    Decent crowd on Saturday?

    Yes and playing that on a Sunday at Villa Park stuffed us for the UEFA Final on the Wednesday 👍🏼

    I don’t think there’s any doubt the bloke is a decent manager. For a while we all bought into the high press, keep possession and move the ball quickly mantra. Unfortunately, when levels dropped there wasn’t a plan B in Wilders armoury and it appeared that the pressure rattled him. Missing out...

    Malcolm Christie

    Saw him at Teesside Park just the other day!

    The problem I see is that the squad is very much shaped to play 3 at the back and wing backs. At times last night we looked incredibly soft on the flanks playing a 4. The spine was good last night but Forss, McGree and at times Giles/Jones were peripheral. It will be interesting to see how...

    You can already see how carrick wants his side to play.

    I must be seeing things differently - surely it was Leo that changed the system to 4 at the back and Carrick has simply continued with that system and personnel. I’m sure in time we will see a Carrick style team emerging but that won’t really take shape until after the January transfer window...

    So much more comfortable in a back 4

    Well yes agree with most of that…but I don’t think Giles can play LB in a four. Time will tell. Nothing sticks with Forss, almost a liability tonight. Great three points though 👍🏼

    Did we play 3 at the back or 4?

    Took me a while to figure it out but as the game developed it looked like 4231 - Watmore Hackney and Jones behind Akpom

    Why do we support boro dad.?

    ‘A club is for life…not just for trophy’s!’ Read that somewhere and it resonated with me!

    I thought he had a very solid game. The whole back line looked more settled as a result.

    What formation will Leo play on Wednesday?

    Same system but with 2 up top and Giles at LWB (Jones suspended). I would probably go with - Steffen Djiksteel Fry Lenihan Bola Giles Howson McGree Crooks Muniz Akpom

    Edwards it is folks...

    Yes I agree EFL…but often Managers almost stumble across a formula and group of players that works. They then learn from that and try to replicate it…but it doesn’t take much to derail the whole plan.

    Edwards it is folks...

    Let’s be honest…it could be anyone off the Managerial Merry Go Round. Sometimes it just clicks…more often than not it doesn’t!

    Team tomorrow then...

    My mistake…I knew he’d had several injuries

    Team tomorrow then...

    I’m amazed that people are picking Luongo…the blokes hardly played for 2 years and has had no pre season. Surely he wouldn’t last long in a competitive game? Steffen (if fit) comes in for me along with Djiksteel and Watmore. Robert’s, McNair and Mowatt on the bench.
