They were talking about it pre match. It pretty much the same stats as Cardiff used to have.

'Warnock ball' is not as negative as pulis. The instruction seems clear and obvious. Just get it forward and pack the box on setplays[^]

The great myth of our time is that possession =goals.

No winning side had the majority of possession in the championship today.

Fantastic win after a shambles last week with woodgate clueless

Wonderful start and couldnít of gone better!

Done some iTunes research of warnock, loves shots at goal and demands it
My kind of manager 👍👍👍

As an aside BANKFOOT ; just think this ĎColiní name given its surname connotations for Mr Neil Warnock managing our proud Middlesborough team is disrespectful and/or distasteful

Thatís that said.

Wonderful start and players given specific jobs they understand from a manager with bags of experience who knows his tactics and how to change it for every eventuality 👍👍
Not getting carried away but Warnock could transform us....

Not concerned about stats, itís more the organisation, energy and fight we had today. Last week was a circus and horror show. Players will always give their all for Warnock and thatís half the battle whatever end of the table you are. We actually looked like a team today which is impressive considering heís only had a few days with the players. I guess confidence breeds confidence.

The thing is, warnock is a confident chap most importantly he knows his stuff and he knows what works and the players gain confidence because they know he knows what heís talking about . Heís genuine and authentic : likes a bit of fun too and therefore players know where they stand and give him everything

He sold it to me when he says 'you need to defend from the front' [^]

Itís a simple statement but true, Defend from the front!

The reality is we looked much more organised today and woodgate couldnít handle the pressure mainly because he didnít have the experience but then woodgate has so much to learn I suspect itís too big a gap to become a top manager

before we all get carried away Stake wasted some golden opportunities today, if our strikers had messed those up even with a win we would be going mental

Agree but thatís football isnít it
We took our chances, NW biggest challenge will come when we let in a couple of daft goals and how he picks us up (the players) and shows us, the fans, how to manage players with fragile confidence and instill belief to steadily improve their collective and individual performances and in so doing build a team spirit 👍👍☝️

A great point, everybody is being made to feel as though they should play the "right" way and honestly it's boring. All teams trying to play the "right" way

Don't get me started on the entertainment value of possession football.

Entertaining football is played in the opponents half; stringing passes across your defense is just the Emperor's New Clothes.

As for a "right way", I don't believe there is any such thing. Football benefits from variety, and I can't imagine anything worse than 20 teams in a division all trying to play out from the back.

Yeah lets just ignore the fact that the top 4 teams in the championship are also the 4 teams with the highest possession percentage over the season.

The same can be said for the top 6 of the premier league. In fact I reckon the same couod be said for almost every league the world over.

Of course individual games are another thing but theres no denying the impact of possession percentage over a season.

I think you mistake correlation for causation.

MBBORO - do you want to link that up to those sides having the better players as well.

The point I'm making is dont just play the same way as everyone else, play to your strengths. If the players arent good enough/the type of players to play possession football dont play that way.

Exactly.

better players allow you to win and have more possession.

Possession doesn't make them win.

You can't improve a team's results just by improving their possession stats: they'll sit in their own half knocking the ball back and forth across the defence.

So the argument now is that possession doesn't correlate with being a better team but the better teams have more possession because they are a better team so we should just accept being a worse team by having less possession even though it doesn't correlate with being a worse team?

I said better players you prick. By playing to a style more suited to the players you have could potentially make you a better team
