Really poor performance, Middlesbrough were very good at stopping us play, and we just didn't match their work rate, not for the first time this season. We're at our best when we press teams hard, that creates the space for us to play our attacking football. We don't seen to be getting the balance of the midfield right in away games. Sometimes eustace might be needed in midfield to toughen the side up a bit.
Regarding will Hughes, we have some very good players in midfield, there's 3 places and Hughes, mascarell, Hendrick, Bryson and Thorne when fit vying for them, and none of them are guaranteed a starting place all the time. Personally think Hughes should be in the side myself. When everyone's fit Thorne Hughes and Bryson gives the best balance to the side.
