    So we've signed Blackman? Wouldn't have happened under Nigel Clough

    I think this signing makes perfect sense. I've said since the start of the season that we need two more wide-men and I'm surprised we've managed to get 2nd without that.
    Perhaps this signing allows Weimann to be a central striker like he wants to be. We have enough wide players now that he doesn't need to be used out wide where he's clearly not suited.
    I see us primarily sticking with 4-3-3 and then having our main options as this:
    LW - Russell, Camara
    RW - Ince, Blackman
    ST - Martin, Weimann, Bent
    One thing that I take from the above is that we now have serious pace. A frontline of Camara, Weimann, Blackman is extremely quick. Maybe Clement will look to deploy it when we're up against teams that will have a go at us, giving us the opportunity to absorb pressure with our excellent defence and then counter attack. Give the ball to Thorne or Butterfield and then hit a long diagonal to one of our new runners.

    If a defender is done for pace and is trying to sway a decision you can see why some do it. But a lot of the time if they played to the whistle they could get in position and make a challenge. It's a gamble that doesn't always pay off, I know what I'd be coaching my players anyway.

    It's a bad trait a few of our players have that needs ironing out quickly. One of the first things you learn as a kid is play to the whistle, nothing frustrates me more than seeing them stop waving hands in the air.

    While at the game, I thought Keogh was immense, particularly that great block he made on the edge of the box.
    However, watching their 1st, why doesn't he step in front of Adomah and block the pass, he had plenty of time to, but instead stands to his side appealing for offside.
    Keogh must have thought he'd be offside regardless, so why wave him through?
    Maybe I'm being harsh, but it doesn't look good on the highlights!

    Great player, his footwork on the ball is incredible. Lost count the amount of times I've thought he's going to lose it and he just dances himself out of trouble.

    Can't blame clement IMO regardless of formation we were sloppy in possession in the second half and got punished. Still a very long way to go, Boro will have some slips along the way let's hope we're still on there tails when they do.

    Tonight was the clincher. A keeper has to do the basics well and then the best goalies distinguish themselves by some extraordinary stops.
    Last season Grant's blunders cost us numerous goals at key times. I was overjoyed we brought Carson in and more than a little worried that some were saying Grant should still be number one. After a shaky start for Grant this season, when he came back in he has performed fine as a number 2 replacing the injured main keeper.Not as good as the main keeper but adequate for the short term. Carson may have saved one or both of Brighton's goals but at least Grant was being solid and dependable. But then tonight...
    I thought Grant had stopped the crazy punching habit (often into his own net) but instead he went to punch a freekick he could have caught. If you're going to punch, you go for height and distance - instean he punched it down into the attacker's head. When as a keeper you've made a bad mistake like that, you retreat to your line and rely on your defence to deal with it - instead he chases after the ball out of his own penalty area. I can honestly say I've only ever seen that before in under-10s football when kids still have no idea what they're doing. Keogh saved him with an incredible block. The Leeds player chipped a gentle ball into the six yard area as Grant back-pedalled. He could probably have caught it. At least he could have simply tipped it over the bar, and we'd have regrouped. Instead he patted it down at the feet of a forward for a tap-in.
    Really it was the type of sequence of events that would make anyone think there was a lot of money in the Far East on the game being level at half-time. There are blunders but that was the worst continuous 30 seconds of goalkeeping I've seen.
    If Carson is fit for Boro it's a very east decision indeed for Clement to bring him back. Sorry, Graty, but I really hope Carson is fit for Boro.

    The substitutions made all the difference tonight.
    The way leeds changed the ref at half time for one that wouldn't book any more of their players was a touch of genius and it showed the way they got the first 7 freekicks of the 2nd half.

    I do enjoy his interviews. I can't quite find the way to explain why but I think most of you will have seen/heard it. Like on Rams Player when Gibbo came in talking about Ince specifically and PC wanted to talk about the team and the win. It seems like a very normal thing to do, sat here typing this, but most managers let the interviewer carry the conversation. Just a little thing, I guess, but it just adds to how well I think he comes across.
    The amount Clement says "no" (or at least a response that goes against a leading question, or highlights a question as a bit stupid) in his interviews is quite refreshing, in a weird way.
