4-1 down in the first half… yer jokin aren’ ya?
Saturday afternoon brought about one of the worst half displays Boro fans are bound to see all season.
In a game that was supposed to be a chance to claim a sweet victory over Garry Monk, instead a feeble defence crumbled at the seems and Boro – and the pitied supporters that watched on – were left wondering what the f**k went wrong.
And that’s exactly where the Boro Breakdown come in.
Jonny, Dana and Elliott picked the bones from the 4-1 drubbing which highlighted significant weaknesses at the back that the Owls did well to exploit.
Preston was also discussed as Jonathan Woodgate was looking for the perfect response under the floodlights, and although a draw wasn’t the desired result there were still positives to take.
One of those positives, Marcus Tavernier was praised by the podcast trio for his promising performance. Now’s the question: should he start against Birmingham?
Also discussed: Ashley Fletcher’s position on the left, Boro’s improved balance against Preston, Shotton’s performances. Bola and Dijksteel, Birmingham rundown.
