Warnock has surprised with a 3-5-2 and a high press. Like Saturday we need to pass it quicker around the press. If we can manage that we should get some joy. 

He's copied Dean's homework!

1st half summary:

Not much goalmouth action.  We are passing the ball better around the back 3 than Saturday.  

They're sitting off our back three and letting them have the ball, that Vynewr run at the end of the half shows it, our CBS are the outlet ball, and they need to step up this game.

Boro MF3 plus Roberts working incredibly hard to stop passing lanes, therefore Vyner been our best opportunity to get forward.  Rowe almost in a couple of times too.

Their best chance came from getting about Rowe and behind him, great positioning from Vyner to prevent an easy goal.

Morsy doing a m2m job on Pato.

Don't think Boro's MF will keep up this workrate.  Not a game to chase.  Keep patient, keep Akpom away from danger area - 1-0 does this.

Are they working that hard? We don't appear to be working that hard tbh. Lots of jogging not running.

Boro certainly not long ball as I mentioned in my preview.

Warnock's good. Organised, competitive, nullified us while creating opportunities. We've been pretty awful with the ball.

No first half summary can be compelte without pointing out how lazy and poor Wells' play has been IMO!

Just saying we have been shit. Calm down 

I’m calm but some of it is a bit more dramatic than that if you read it. Warnock has done a job on us so far, it happens. Hardly comparable to the week in, week out dross we endured from the last manager during his last 18 months or so........

Don’t think we’ve committed the two wide centre-halves forward enough. Been a few times a give and go has looked on. Just need to play a bit quicker, either way.

Well that was poor. Boro look half decent. Bakinson has at least shown he’s human and Wells is proving my theory that he should score zero for every attribute in FM, except for finishing in which he gets 20. 

Been playing FM at half time  coincidentally against Boro, and I've just taken Wells off at half time because he was shit in that too.

Ended 1-1. Boro own goal, then Roberts with a late equaliser.

haha, they've played him well, yeah, he's not been great, but there have been a couple of bits of interplay that have nearly come off.  its been a bit "nearly" all over the pitch.

Very poor. Boro here for a point but still look the most likely to score.  As usual we see how Wells outside the box is a lot worse footballer than Wells inside the box.  Paterson and Weimann being kept quiet and with those 3 out of it we have no idea.  

Holden needs to spot when something isn’t working.  Change formation now.  Do something different and we might create something .

Of course we’ve been very poor so far but amazing negativity on here tonight from a set of supporters whose team are UNEXPECTEDLY top of the league. It’s like a few of you get off on finding the most damning description of the team you “support” as possible.

One bad 45 and it’s back to the LJ days already😂.

Maybe it is because we are top of the table that people expect a better performance than they are giving.
