He's quickly becoming a problem.

Finally!

Every game he has played has resulted in us being disjointed.

He doesn't dominate the midfield and he isn't a particularly strong communicator.

Leadbitter has to start ahead of him.

Is it just me or is he fat? Jogs round the pitch like a 40 yr old Sunday league player after a night on the lash.

Seriously, Howson CAN'T start on Saturday. If he does, Monk is definitely out of his mind.

He is a waste of a shirt. I have yet to see him bring anything positive to the team. We looked infinitely better when he was dropped and Leadbitter came into the time.

I'm still baffled and angry that he played 90 minutes and Clayton was hooked early in the second half.

A midfield of Howson and Baker alongside Clayton just means Clayton has to carry two men. Replace Howson with Leadbitter instantly means two men can limit the ineffectiveness of Baker.

Monk wasn't my choice in the summer and I think people are starting to realise why. We can't start a game quickly and, despite all the attacking recruits, we are still devoid of creativity in the middle, the same problem as last year, and so just resort to the same tactic of lumping it into the box.

I thought we had got rid of our anonymous midfielder when we offloaded De Roon instead we have replaced him with a poorer British version. He may be a cover or replacement for Clayton, but how he gets in above Downing and Leadbitter is beyond me, well obviously as he's Monk's player that might explain something.

It's all a bit Kevin Thomson, was impressed when we signed him based on Rangers fans reports....am still waiting for him to come good.

He doesn't seem to do anything. Nothing. He has virtually no impact whatsoever.

Maybe he's being restricted with how he is being asked to play but my word when things aren't going right he's experienced enough to try something different himself and not act as a robot.

So far I'd struggle to score him out of 10

Agreed that's an insult on O'Neill whose typical performance was much more effective than Howson is being.

And when O'Neill was a Boro player there werent any other better Boro players who were left out so he could play.

Thats not the case with Howson.

He has been awful. Needs to be back out of the team immediately.

Agree he is terrible the Algerian who we signed from Watford who looks like the kidnapper from taken is better than him.

A dreadful player.

Dreadful, him and Baker in the same side is asking for inadequacy.

Leadbitter (according to Maddo last night) was still carrying a knee injury and I thought he was limping and stretching when warming up at half time. Which begs the question why he was on the bench? A fit Downing or Forshaw is surely a better option than an unusable Grant?

Either drop Baker back into CM and play Bamford or Braithwaite in the role Baker appeared to be attempting or simply drop both of them. But Howson was dreadful and how he stayed on when Clayton went off was a mystery to me.
