Southgate, Come Out And Criticise
Most Boro fans would like to see Gareth Southgate come out and criticise not only the officials but his players after the embarrasing 3-0 defeat to Fulham.
A harsh penalty decision allowed Fulham to make it 2-0, before Clint Dempsey went on to make it 3.
Bad refereeing in the last 3 games has cost us points. David Wheater harshly gave a penalty away, and was sent off against Hull City, in which Boro went on to loose 2-1.
At home to Arsenal we were denied a penalty when Gael Clichy brought down Adam Johnson. We were drawing 1-1, a decision that could have changed the outcome of the game.
Finally away to Fulham, another harsh penalty decision cost us. Tony McMahon was penalised in the box for handling the ball. This again changed the game when we were 1-0 down.
- Boro keen on signing former Ajax prodigy
- Boro target League One’s hot star to bolster attaching options
I don't want to take the blame away from the poor performance today, but referees need to make the correct decisions. Southgate should not be playing Mr Nice Guy. He should be the one putting the pressure on the officials to get it right!
