Well done, apart from a few spells from us you deserved that. I didn't think it was a pen in the first half, I didn't think it was much of a foul for your first, it looked like Cooper slipped.  T

Must mention Stoj's saves at 0-0. Would have been a very different game if he hadn't made them

Fletcher fouled Jake Cooper in the build-up to Assombalonga's goal however, the 24-year-old clearly clipping the Millwall defender's heels, before sauntering in on goal and playing in Assombalonga.

As Millwall's players all stopped expecting a free-kick, referee Tim Robinson let play continue - leaving the Lions fuming when Assombalonga's goal was allowed to stand.

The second-half drinks break that quickly followed Assombalonga's goal was instructive as to Millwall's lingering frustrations. Midfielder Ryan Woods asked fourth official Neil Hair: "How is that not a foul? How is that not a foul? f***ing useless!"

Millwall's resurgence was stopped in its tracks however, as Assombalonga profited from Fletcher's clear foul to slot home an easy finish.

Fletcher illegally clipped Cooper's legs without censure, coasted through the space and played in Assombalonga with a simple square ball.

As the goal stood, the Millwall players' fury increased, but to no avail.

More from sky sports.

*** review from Sky, clearly written by someone with an agenda as they're not usually definitive in statements about missed fouls , also no mention of the multiple offences Millwall got away with.

Warnock says Spence has a broken nose.

Sky does not mention the incident.

Yeah, I just checked, bringing down the heat on Fletcher and yet not mentioning either of the incidents that could have led to red cards in their own team.

Well we are dire. No question about that. But I still honestly believe (or is it hope?) That we are still too good to go down if the players actually get their acts together.
I am going with a 1-1 draw. And I am predicting we will finish 5th from bottom. And I am predicting I will get home for Christmas.

Feel them positives Boro....... Feel them. 🤪🤪🤪

They felt the positives more than I hoped for. Now for staying up and getting home. 😁😁

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
