I'm afraid Brighton are exposing the massive defensive frailties in Boro's defence. Unfortunately Carrick is stuck with these defenders for the time being. There is no way these defenders could survive in the PL.

The gulf in class is stark. I reckon Carrick will learn a lot from today.

As soon as we come across a good team we fold. Did it against Burnley. OK Brighton at the moment are a top notch PL outfit so you would expect them to win. What I didn't expect was just how poor our defending was going to be. Fry looked totally out of it. As for Jones,he's non league standard now. Let's see what effect this drubbing does to morale.

As someone said on One Boro,that second half was cringeworthy. I hope that Carrick is able to get some players in with the ability and the heart worthy of playing in the Boro shirt. I would get rid of Jones,Smith,Fry,McNair Howson et al.

I wonder what Cameron Archer made of it all. Buyers regret?

Remember when Boro played Brighton last game of season. We needed a draw to go up. Result 0:0 and up,we went. Of course came straight down. Brighton have developed a strategy particularly in relation to recruitment and appointment of managers. Consequently they have brought in players to fit the way they want to play. They now have some really excellent players. No doubt the club management and recruitment is also very good. Boro could learn a lot from studying what Brighton have done. After all they are not as big a club as Boro.Ditto Brentford.The last 15 years have been nothing but failure and drift at Boro. I really hope Carrick can restore this club to the top flight.

Just pointing out that Boro have one hell of a way to go to get to good PL standard. Brighton have shown how it can be done. Letís hope the powers that be at Boro are capable of taking note.

Brighton are the 3rd most indebted club in the PL.

They would only need to sell a couple of players.

Considering the weekends shock results, we got off lightly.

Beaten by a far better team, but not shame in it.

Exactly.Carrick will have learned a lot about his players. He was very charitable in his comments, but he knows now who needs to be shown the door in the summer.

Sadly, this kind of small club mentality is quite prevalent amongst our fan base with regard to this one-sided rout.

Some people need reminding we were not some plucky National League outfit chancing their arm against Premier League 'big boys'. We're riding high in the Championship and put out a full strength team. I was fucking appalled with what I witnessed on saturday.

Like I said Carrick now knows just how brittle some of these players are. I suspect he was just as appalled too.

Perhaps the game against Millwall is the big test. Letís see what Boro are made of here.

Clubs like
Brighton
Bournemouth
Palace
Fulham
Brentford
Forest

Arenít bigger than us. Thereís our target, but sensibly targeted where we can pick up points etc.


It can be done but sadly for us Karanka decided that not letting in goals or scoring goals was the way. Worst and most inept season Iíve seen and that includes the early 80s

TBH, after today's Brighton result it doesn't seem that bad. Reporter on Beeb said it was a "long 200 mile round trip for Liverpool fans!"(Yeah, I know!) Having lived in that part of the world, I reckon it was just an annoying trip back to somewhere else in Sussex for the "Scouser's"!

Came here to say more or less the same thing. Brighton looked very good and could have had 5 vs Liverpool
