The Boro Breakdown team spoke about a potentially nagging problem facing Jonathan Woodgate – the engine room.
Whilst two of the three midfield positions seem to pick themselves, with Clayton and McNair being selection shoe-ins, the third and final spot is very much up for grabs.
Lewis Wing’s performances so far this season have fallen below expectation, and George Saville has never really lit a spark on Teesside.
The latter’s displays have come under scrutiny in recent months, particularly after Saturday’s defeat against Cardiff where Saville failed to impose himself in the middle of the park.
So what’s going wrong for Saville? Jonny, Dana and Elliott discussed it on the last podcast and addressed what needs to change going forward.
Transfers, Dael Fry’s link to the Premier League and a seeming lack of leadership on the pitch was also talked about.
And as always there was a look ahead to the upcoming game, this week against Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday.
