  1. May be that with Brunt so close to back three, it made us a bit safer in defence? Yet by doing so, again we are not passing out with enough pace to break the opposition hold on midfield. I could ramble on about how we can improve our hold on games and how we could make more clear cut goal chances but put simply. We are playing too slowly all over the pitch. One example to confirm this. How many times did our wing backs make an attempt to go past their marker? Once or twice, so don't blink during a game or you'll miss it!
  2. A thread where I can be positive. We now have four, yes four Academy boys regularly in our starting line up and a couple more waiting in the wings. All four have contributed to our league position even allowing them a couple or three costly howlers. But if they learn from those errors, it will improve their game. A plus for Dean Holden.
  3. Everything so slow and predictable. Brunt doing OK in midfield but the other two? And Dasilva. Doing a Callum by rarely ever trying to attack their wing back.
  4. I sincerely hope that you will be proved right at the end of the season. However, that non performance on Tuesday tells me that we have a long way to go to erase the slow, slow and even slower mindset from those in the squad who have been here for over three seasons. I want to see us trying to play entertaining, aggressive and entertaining football, preferably on the grass. I don't like losing, but that is inevitable at times. Turgid games like me Tuesday must become a "one in the season" not the norm.
  5. Whoever starts, we have to play all over the park with some more pace than we ever got to on Tuesday. I don't mean how fast we run but the speed of passing must be quicker than the snail trail which gave Boro so much time to press. As for any changes in personnel, we do not have that many options. What appears to be a squad with too many is actually quite sparse at present. Is Dasilva fit? When will we ever see Williams and Walsh? And with Paterson reverting to one good game in five, where is the creativity and support for whoever gets the short straw to play up front?
  6. Is reference to "Taylor" actually meant to be Towler?
  7. I have always understood that during cooking, the Paella is hardly stirred whereas the Risotto is stirred very often as it helps the rice to release the starch. Just trying to stir things up!
  8. Thanks for your comments Dave, but the emphasis from me is that the ball between our back three should be hit with some speed to enable us to berak free of the 'Boro press. Instead they were slow and very predicatable. Hence the Boro press worked at treat.
  9. To the best of my knowledge, these two hat tricks by Mabbutt and Bailey are the last away team hat tricks in league matches, Div One and Prem, at Old Trafford. PS, what about 1-6 thumping this season. Did anyone get the match ball then?
  10. It's not the defeat that hurts. Over a lifetime, a team wins one, draws one and loses one. It's the manner of defeat that is seriously concerning. Monotonous passes across the back without any pace. Easy for Boro to press. Little creativity in midfield. Did we have a midfield there? No service to front men except long balls lumped anywhere in the vain hope that we could get lucky. Holden came in promising a more attacking style of play. This was back to the wasted two previous seasons of Johnson. And how did DH hope to change the game by replacing Martin and Wells with
  11. Worse than anything from LJ. Never thought I'd say that. Dreadful non performance.
  12. This is appalling entertainment. The City players are taking social space a bit too far! Is Wells playing or are we ten men only?
  13. No Dasilva again. Shin still causing problem?
