Well then, that was a wasted trip for many Middlesbrough fans that braved the journey to London last night. Southgate hinted at an attacking formation, but decided on parking the team bus in front of our goal. It worked in the first half, just about, but went horribly wrong in the second period.
Salmon Kalou scored twice to inflict another defeat on Boro. It is 11 games without a win in the Premier League now. Where is a win coming from on recent performances? I don't know. Maybe Southgate knows something that we don't. We will win on Saturday and part of the bargain of the win was to lose to Chelsea. Maybe in a corrupt world, but it will not be as easy as that.
Southgate has some thinking to do ahead of the game against Blackburn. The formation was totally wrong against Chelsea. Boro fans don't want to see one up top ever again please!
Come On Boro.
By the way, Adam Johnson played well on the right wing. The only decentperformance for me. The rest were average Not their fault though, it was the managers fault for not letting them express their talents.
