Boro v Millwall (A) 2-0 (Assombalonga, Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

Delighted with the result and performance today. We showed a real desire that had been lacking previously. Sky reporter an obvious Millwall fan if the assault on Spence and the kick at McNair are ignored and a slip by Cooper is deemed a foul by Fletcher.

Great result. I read “an obvious trip” and thought we’d got away with one. Looked more like to me he misread the ball, *** himself and fell over.

clear sending off, absolutely baffled by that decision. Quite a clinical pen though, which is good😊

If I was given a choice between seeing Wigan or Hull drop down, I think it would be Hull....Wigan have always been fairly straight before current lot and after the way Hull acted in that game, they would not be a great loss to the division, so personally I am an "athletic supporter" ....(cue smart remark from Blanco)

I’m definitely sending WADA around to your house Ray if you are a supporter who has suddenly become “athletic” 😀

Totally unexpected performance but full credit to the team, that was the sort of effort needed if we are to get out of this mess. Why on earth they didn't show that fight and spirit in the previous two games is a mystery. Maybe it was the formation that they simply believed and bought into, who knows but they deserve all the well earned plaudits. Not a single poor performance from anyone including those like Friend and Johnson who have been getting brickbats over the last week.

Great win and a massive relief. I thought we were doomed if we lost again, for all of Warnock's motivational skills I'm not sure whether we would have come back from another defeat. 

It sounds like we found the system which best suits the players we've got. 

It would be nice to follow it up with another win on Saturday now.

Obviously its important we get a good result v Bristol City on weekend but these are the other games.

FRIDAY
Huddersfield v Luton

SATURDAY
Charlton v Reading
Barnsley v Wigan
Hull v Millwall

2 big games where 4 rival teams go head to head.

Part of me  wants current bottom 3 of Luton Barnsley and Hull to all lose. Quicker the bottom 3 are cut adrift from the test the quicker we can get safe. IF we take care of our own business.

Barnsleys last 3 fixtures are very difficult. One more win for us and I think we will be fine.

Whilst i look at who rivals got i given up since restart at labelling a game an easy one or hard one as there been some mad results.

What I will say about Barnsley last 2 fixtures which are v Forest and Brentford is that by time they play them they might be out of automatic picture but guaranteed a play off spot. And given play offs start 4 days after final game them two teams may rest players v Barnsley for that reason.

Let's see what the Quest lot think of the incidents, currently on.

Absolutely nothing wrong with our goal. I'd have been furious if that was disallowed. 

Didn't realise how close the keeper got to our penalty, phew.

Think they make an interest point about how Assombalonga was lucky to stay on after his two footed tackle, which I can understand.

I was nervous when I saw it in real time.

    • Fletcher.  I honestly think he is our best striker now.  He had a difficult start here, with fans on his back because of his price tag, but has persevered and developed despite all the inadequacies in our coaching set up.  I really like how he and Tav link up.  I am looking forward to seeing how he develops under a manager who knows how to coach players and inspire confidence in them.  
    • To be honest I find it difficult to pick a favourite out as we are at a stage where we have no consistently outstanding players though many are very capable in flashes...I like Johnson going forwards but he terrifies me near our penalty area...Fletch is improving all the time and with a partner that would pass to him, he could improve a lot more...Tav is beginning to show his potential ...but agree with Blanco, Saville very underrated and reminds me a lot of Mustoe...so probably one of those three depending on the game...."deep rums".?..I'll have one of those 
    • Friend also for sentimental reasons. I have a soft spot for Dijksteel  for reasons unbeknown to even myself and want him to do well. I really liked Ayala as I felt much more confident in our defence when he was a part of it but the way he departed left a bad taste. My favourite player growing up, despite my username, was actually Gianluca Festa. I like players who play in a way which shows that they care about this club as much as we fans do. Festa did that. There been more since him, George being one of them. His legs have gone but I know he gives a sh*t about this club just as much as the rest of us do.
    • Friend for sentimental reasons... I have a soft spot for Coulson as well.. I love those merauding deep rums he can make.. From wing back.. He can unfotunately not do it as a winger, yet... 
    • Gotta be Fletcher. Think he's very underrated by our fanbase and has worked really hard to improve his game after a difficult start to his career here.
