How does he maintain his place? Unless he scores a goal, which isn't very often, he brings nothing to the team. He's too tactically naive and slow to be playing at this level. I don't know how Woodgate doesn't see this.

Tav also had a poor game this evening. Both should have been hooked for McNair and Johnson and played with 2 wingers, coulson and Johnson. Woodgates subs are always so ineffective. Clearly have a clause that Nmecha has to get have time with City too as I can't fathom another explanation as to how he's on the pitch and I'm not.

Tony Pulis was coaching this lad. He was telling us his faults and wanted him to improve them.

Oh but the fans wanted him in the team.

Pulis also coached Traore how to use the ball and where to position himself etc.

Pulis isn't a mug, regardless of his brand of football.

The thing is, he has no pace, he's basically our very poor version of de bruyne who relies on excellent technique and positioning to make up for his pace. Wings positioning is awful and his technique is found wanting, especially as he's so one footed. I just fail to see what he brings to the team.

Get Spence in and play howson there.

I think Woodgate thinks that he can take credit for Wing becoming a regular first team player. But he was way out of his depth tonight. He wasnít alone, but no way should he have lasted 90 minutes on the pitch. Meanwhile, Morrison sits on the bench again and doesnít get a look in. We were crying out for someone to get their foot on the ball and create something. Another baffling decision from Village.

To maintain a place in this midfield you only need to be rank ordinary - which is something that Wing certainly is.

For me, McNair is the missing link in centre of midfield. He has more control and vision; another one on the naughty step?

Thing is Trappa we have had a torrent of criticism on here of McNair following the game at the weekend. So if he is on the proverbial ďnaughty stepĒ heís been placed there by more people than just Woodgate.

hasnt pushed on this season - scores great long range goals - is that enough? Not in a team struggling to feed the forwards ( now there is another question ) Really should be used as an impact sub if we are 1 down

One of many noticeable differences between the teams last night was the ease with which the Leeds lads had control of the ball. Wing is one of many of our players who just doesnít have that basic technique. Hence the rest of the game becomes more difficult. Fletcher has trampolines where his shins should be for instance. The ability to control the ball in tight areas and move it quickly and efficiently opens up all sorts of space in other areas which Leeds did brilliantly. We have 27million quids worth of strikers who couldnít trap a bag of cement between them.

I'd with that Crazy L. We find it so difficult to move the ball quickly. We need more mobility in the centre, we were chronically slow in that area last night and very poor technically. If Wing doesn't score he literally offers nothing.

I'd like to see a midfield made up of maybe Saville sitting deep, then Tav and McNair. Or get Spence back on the right and put Jonny Howson in the middle. At least he is mobile and can carry the ball forwards.

Unfortunately none of that would solve the awful technical ability and first touch of our forwards

Correct CrazyL. The amount of times our players shinned the ball off the pitch or to a Leeds player, or it spun up in the air was incredible. Leeds seemed to have no such problems.

In relation to this: see also the fact that when we pass they smash the ball at each other at chest height like they're mortal

Wing is a Northern League player who in getting a contract with Boro was the luckiest man in the world. He desperately struggles with fitness and conditioning, he is great for a Saturday afternoon in Shildon but way out of his depth for the Riverside. He is shattered after his first run of the game. He constantly looks for and fails the spectacular and canít do the simple basics. Last night was embarrassing and I felt sorry Woodgate put him in that position. He hits a good shot but is a 15 minute at best man. That he has retained his place when others are on the naughty step tells you in a nutshell what an abject failure Woodgate is

Wing would be perfect if this was the NFL - bring him on to kick a dead ball, then off you trot.

Completely agree about the basics as well. Shotton made some excellent tackles last night, but then, the goal, where he just lazily skied it into the air, and there was a bit in the second half where he had the ball without an opposition player within 30 yards, no pressure, and he missed a simple sideways ball to Coulson by 10 yards.

I agree with all said about him.

Think only reason he gets a game is because Woodgate sees him as the only option to get a goal. We canít create anything so hope she pulls a 20 harder out the bag.

Offers nothing else.

He struggles to do the basics. There was a moment 2nd half vs Leeds where the ball was in the air. Wing needed to bring it down with his chest and control it, but instead, he tried to hook it behind him with his foot and gave the ball away.

It's probably because he's come from non-league and hasn't been coached properly.

He scores with one of his pot shots so stays in team. How many of these pot shots go in to row Z? I suppose he is actually having an effort on goal, which is more than the rest of team.

But still, not good enough. Cant pass five yards, constantly gives away stupid free kicks in dangerous areas, thinks he is Steven Gerrard with cross field balls that 9 times out of ten go straight out of play. Offers nothing apart from pot shots.

Tarmo Kink used to score worldies, didnt make him a first team regular.

Name the last one? The rest of your post is nonsense. He provides the most accurate pases of any player in virtually every game this season. This was the case again on Wednesday. 5 crosses, 4 accurate. If only Clayton and Saville could half match his ability.

Wing & Tav both dwell on the ball and get caught in possession as much as anyone Iíve ever seen. Itís evidence of poor technique and lack of vision.

Saville on the other hand doesnít want the ball and gets rid of it as soon as possible which also loses possession.

Until those 3 are dropped, weíre XXXXXXing in the wind

Wing will ultimately get Woodgate the sack. His unwillingness to drop him will eventually be his undoing. Sadly by then we will be in tier 3.

Maybe they are not quite Championship level.

I went on a stag do to Madrid once, and we went to see Real play. Zidane was unbelievable. His team mates would pass him the ball, even when there were two or three oppo around him. He still looked like he had acres of space, and hours of time. The bloke was class. I've honestly never seen anyone else live who made football look so easy.

Wing didn't get tackled once on Wednesday. He doresn't dwell on the ball. He's our only player that has picked his pass before it's even been kicked to him. Most sides have a few who can do that; most Premier League players can do it; we have one.

we were raving about Wing last season now he is duff ? the reason is he is now playing in a deep lying role which obviously doesn't suit him, he is the best goal scoring midfielder we have at the moment and played his best football for us last season in a far more advanced role. it is clear for all to see he is not a tackler but can spot a pass and score a goal, move him forward ! obvious !

Each club have confirmed they are keeping tabs on him have they or rather just more speculation to sell papers/attract social media interaction?

There's a decent Championship player in Wing but he's not showing yet and is totally anonymous for most of each game but people just remember the goals/odd good pass and think he's had a good game.

He needs a decent coach in his ear but I'm pretty sure Woodgate & Keane aren't the men for that job.

Even when people where bigging him up as the northern league Xavi, I din't buy into it. He had potential, anda great shot, and he was prepared to play through balls, which others were not, but it was clear he had huge issues to his game.

He hasn't improved, he lacks basic fundamentals.

So Clayton being XXXXXXe makes Wing good?

He's scored 6 goals this season, bettered only by Fletcher & not a bad return but as has been stated that flatters his overall match performances which by and large have been poor.

I think he has the potential to be decent at this level but he needs to improve all aspects of his game.
