Good performance tonight

Well I only saw the second half due to problems getting into Matchday live, but I thought we were definitely the better team. Yes I know that we are still lacking in the final third and we were gifted the goal but there was a lot of positives.

For the first time in years we are starting to look like a team i.e. greater than the sum of the parts. There seems to be a togetherness and a good team spirit. We've now got a bunch of players who are playing well especially Mcnair and Dijksteel. Morsy is looking a good signing, Fry is now back to what his early promise showed , Howson is very solid, Bettenelli looks dependable, Akpom is working hard and holds the ball up well and of course we have Roberts now to add a bit of creative spark especially when he gets up to full fitness. Even Saville looks better!

UTB!

yes vast improvement on the last couple of seasons.... still loads of work to do but the shapes looking spot on, Fry looking stronger each game, Mosey is a Hamilton clone and just as good, Paddy is a Beckenbaur reincarnated. Alls looking up, Wish we had Big John and Hughie up front

Totally agree 👍 although I don’t think we were gifted the goal. It was poor from the defender though. Huge credit to Saville for the press, tackle and finish, He kept it clean, didn’t foul and was composed in slotting it past the keeper. Lovely to see a Boro player score for once when through on goal.

Loved that last night. I really like the shape we've got at the minute. Dijksteel is looking like an absolute gem, Fry has been quality since coming back, and McNair has been outstanding. The composure McNair shows when stepping up and out, both with the ball and to intercept the ball, puts us in such a solid position.

Morsy is looking like an excellent signing too. Howson is exactly what you'd expect, what a player.

Our players who played tonight were all 100 percenters and apart from the goal we scored Boro had 3 other good chances.
Of course we cannot always rely on getting 4 points from 2 games where we only had one shot on target, but we deserved what we got.
When or if we get a decent striker into the club, Warnock should and almost certainly will ensure that the person is a trier and not reduce the overall team effort.

We had two shots on target v Reading, one a goal wrongly disallowed & another kicked off the line, both from Howson

Should be top 6 if the goal scored against Reading wasn't disallowed.
Considering the teams we have played a very promising start.
Warnock is working wonders with what he has at his disposal.
I've said many times if only we had some money .......

There are very few championship squads that stand out as individuals. It's all about the team.
