Do notice that he dropped deeper in midfield as the contest went on without any dip in quality. The video also includes a nifty save from Brad Guzan, who posted the "W" on his Boro debut.

Was kind of shocked when he moved to d-mid at half. I mean he was arguably the best player for the team in the first half from the wing. Pretty shocking to see how effective he was as essentially a pure d-mid. Go gooch!

Not only does he earn another start but the way the team is shaping up, particularly with injuries, you can see him getting real regular minutes for a while.

Be interesting to see how Klinsi treats this.
