Middlesbrough (A) - Match Thread

Recommended Posts

We’re actually a joke. How did we come to the conclusion that we would be alright without any attacking reinforcements with our best player out for the season and number of our forwards injury prone. TM derserves the sack for that alone.

Assuming Holtby was in behind Arma, where has bennett come on?? 

Please don't say it was a straight swap.

Fuck sake. Any excuse to get Bennett on.

People said he would start today instead of JRC, so that's not necessarily true.

Bennett on the wing. Gallagher and Arma on top.

4-4-2 seems to me

We have 4 starting line up midfielders out injured now. This is just impossible.

Omfg, Bennett on... good thing we used the transfer window so well.

FFS Tony! You would bring on Bennett if Walton got injured! Bennett is a league one player! So who has moved where now to accomdate Bennett?

It's the same system. Arma has dropped into Holtby's role, Gally has gone to Arma's centre-forward role, and Bennett sort of looks to be in Gally's role. That's what it looks like - sort of.

Seems a daft sub. Could have just brought one of our three strikers on and put Arma in the hole. Instead we are shifting a few around?

Or put Johnson on and moved downing forward. Anything but bennett

Defence and midfield look knackered to me. They did in the last match. Are these foreign training camps in the space of eight days really worth it?

Well that's what it was a minute ago, and now it looks like a straight swap. The players seem to switch all the time that I can't tell. It's the same system, definitely, but the players are swapping every few minutes or something.

I expect a free transfer midfielder coming in if this continues. 

Think someone mentioned Carroll from Swansea has been released.

Now it looks like a 4-4-2. I give up. I shouldn't have tried to answer the question. 🙄

Bell is the only one who looks sharp and is winning some intelligent free-kicks. Who'd a thunk it?

No! Anyone that's been anywhere 'warmer' needs 2 weeks to recover after coming back to the middle of winter.

Lucky to be 0-0, we have been insipid all over the pitch

Holtby is an absolute sick note

That's why he's here in fairness. Much like Mulgrew in 2016 wouldn't have been anywhere near us otherwise.

Darrrrreeeeeennnnnnnnn!

I think that's why he's here. Only 29, yet 4 games out of 5 seems more like 49.
