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

That's the only positive I can see right now.

As long as Hull don't equalise and Wigan don't score or concede.

mcnair is utter garbage. he is a fraud hes not interested unless he has the ball. its quite obvious why pulis never picked him now. the checky feccer even left him man run by him and pointed as if someone else to track him. this he was gesturing to jed, who was actually jockeying the guy on the ball i think. i never want to see this man in a boro shirt again. i can put up with players lacking ability but still applying themselves but a guy like him is poison to a team. especially in midfield.

Honestly not even sure how we change this. We aren't gonna change how we play. Bristol are good in possession and pass the ball well. Every risk we take, we leave ourselves open to more clinical play from them. Countering our style really well.

BTW Having seen it again it's a clear handball, Johnson was right to complain. Unfortunately it is very difficult for the ref & linesman to see but that should have been a penalty for me.

Spence has to do better for the 2nd goal. I’m honestly not sure how good he is defensively. Only young though I guess.

It's Lewis Wing, so I would assume McNair or Saville.

Saville off for Wing, well, never saw that coming. Don't think Saville has done that bad.

yes he was jockying him for ages, nobody covered him leaving it easy for the lad to work a yeard and get a shot off. hardly jeds fault the goal.

And Saville 12m for those two 🤢

    • The thread title is probably my fault - as @Changing Times says, I'd posted a thread asking if it was time to abolish the FA. Maybe we need to keep that thread at the top of the board, so the correlation between that one and this is more obvious? Then again, apart from the title, nothing that's been said over the last four pages would come as a surprise to anyone at MFC. It's not like we're talking about chasing SG out of town with pitchforks, or hanging an effigy of him from the Transporter Bridge. Everyone knows what we achieved in the Noughties, but there's been one misstep after another for over a decade. That needs scrutinising, and our supine local press clearly isn't up to the job. Incidentally, since people in positions of authority apparently read this forum, I'd like to say hello to anyone at Red Bull who's reading this. Your drinks are excellent, and we would be delighted if you bought our club. Pleeeeease?
    • Considering we've had to play the top four sides, with a paper-thin squad and none of our transfer deadline day targets plus several injuries in key positions, I think we've started really well. Even the best managers need time to work their magic - Aitor tightened us up defensively almost straight away (as has Warnock), but it takes far longer to work on attacking flair, intuitive passing and clever set-pieces. Also, the team's confidence will be rising with every battling draw, sneaky win and clean sheet. I've seen mediocre teams on paper go on incredible runs because confidence is high and so winning becomes a habit. I wouldn't bet against us becoming one of the league's form teams as the season progresses, especially if we can sign a CB, LWB and CF in January.

    • Judged on who we have faced I think we have had a much better start than a lot of us would have said earlier.
    • Interesting thread well done Smogzilla. Back to the game, massively important that we are seen as the dominant team and that we are an attacking team expecially at home. Need a win otherwise we become the draw king specialists. We are not a relegation candidate this season and not too sure where we can finish but I do know that we are not too far off being a good team for the division. Take it to Coventry and get 3 points under the belt
