Boro v Bristol City 1-3 (Assombalonga)

Recommended Posts

Keeper throws, 2 passes, shot, goal.  We make it look so hard to even get a shot off.

So you're a big fan of 70s and 80s kits then? 

 

Back on topic, are we just getting outplayed by a better team, or have we just been crap?

Can't find any working streams...but given how this is playing out I guess its a blessing in disguise.

We've had patches where we were on top.  We are down to a couple of very good strikes.

Pretty much. They look really sharp with their passing and moving. I’d love us to play like this. 
 

I wouldn’t say we have been especially bad. They are just better than we are. (In that half)

The Barnsley v Wigan and the Hull results are going to be very important.

Dragged right back in it.

Bristol are clinical. We have had chances just haven't out then away

Think this is being kind to us. We have had the header and frys chance and that's it - Bristol city have had 3 great chances besides the two goals and only for stoj would have been further ahead. We were very poor, only threatening from set pieces.

Is it just me or whenever we have a chance to counter McNair picks the ball up and instead of playing the ball forward, he always checks back? 

Kills any momentum.

We’re better at build up

They’re better at finishing 

simples really 

Well, sticking it in the net is what counts...

I'm still surprised (and disappointed) we're struggling to trouble their keeper though. They don't have the best defensive record.

The only difference between us and them is they take their chances that I can see in this game, we should have scored twice in that half and id actually say Frys was easier to score than miss. I am encouraged by the effort and the way we have calved them open at times. If we can get a goal back early we might just get the confidence we need to get a draw out of this, I really dont think they are good at the back either.

He does. The midfield three isn't working today gotta change it up.

If Stoke lose to Brum tomorrow, its as you were with a game less. So not all doom and gloom

Think we need to roll the dice and take one of the midfield 3 off for Roberts. Maybe even two of the 3 off for Robert's and tav, though that could make us vulnerable on the counter

Calved then open?!?! 
Watching a different game to me haha, I’d say 2 chances from set pieces in a half isn’t exactly calving them open tbh. We can’t pass the ball, and we can’t defend.

    • I think Cox looked OK next to Pearson and Festa...but when he was with Whyte, Whelan, Morris and Vickers, he got hung out to dry trying to cover for them and Kinder often looked like he was in a different team...the opposition...solid enough with decent support but not a stand out
    • The actual explanation for Palace's kits is even stupider, the chairman says he saw these kits as concept kits by a Palace fan on instagram and told Puma to make it happen. Ghastly looking kits as well christ, it's a shame because Puma are one of the better kit makers in my opinion their stuff looks like it fits snug. "I was immediately inspired when I saw the concept from a supporter who had shared designs on Instagram, with perfect synergy across all the kits for the upcoming season. Working closely with PUMA and our design team at Crystal Palace, we believed these were the designs we had to bring to life, and I’m proud to say we’ve done so. "We haven’t produced a shared design across shirts since our memorable promotion season in 2012/13, and there is no better campaign to honour in our eighth consecutive season in the Premier League. "I fully believe these kits are bold and eye-catching enough to captivate both current supporters and new ones – wherever they may be – and I look forward to seeing the team wear them throughout the upcoming Premier League campaign."
    • I think something similar occurred in Liverpools home kit. Add a tinge of an extra colour and then say it represents the Liver birds then sell it for £99.
    • Just seen them and thought exactly the same. What is the point in the 2nd and 3rd kit as it contains same colours as the home kit?
    • Internationally for us it's until the 5th of October and then an additional 11 days of a domestic only transfer window afterwards running until 16th October. For me we'd be mad to let our glaring needs wait until even mid September though that's why I think it's good Warnock's not waiting around. Been quietly a newsy day on the transfer front for us a name to cross off, a new name's popped up and status of bids clarified by clubs we seem busy at least. Jackett has said they've received no bids for Alex Bass quashing that link down a bit. Morgan Fox is set for stoke. No bids received by Northampton have met their valuation for Goode, Echo say Boro sense silly games afoot and unwilling to enter a bidding war for him. Boro and QPR have agreed terms with Spurs for Luke Amos (nominal fee around 500k)
