We didn’t land a fist on Huddersfield after the sun was made and we scored because the referee gave us a very very soft penalty. I’d have been livid had that been given against us. 
 

Would you have taken Tav off?

No I’d have taken Saville off, but I don’t rate Saville whereas Warnock does.

Cannot wait for Tav to be dropped next match for Morsy and watch a midfield 3 of Morsy, Saville and Howson behind Spence and Johnson.

I think some of today can be partly blamed on fatigue. But it doesn't get any easier between 29.11 and 19.12 (21 days) we have 6 games to come.

The are professional athletes who should be capable of playing twice weekly. We are no different then any other so please don’t make excuses when we have Robert’s sitting it out week in week out.
The fact is m, people think we are better then we are and expectations are far to high. 
I am not so worried about the points if you think we have maintained a point a game over the last 3 games. 
I am worried we will not beat as many teams mid or lower I thought we would

I know you're being sarcastic but Johnson hasn't put a foot wrong for us in a while, and Morsy has largely been excellent for us.

I don't think Tavernier should be dropped either though.

Is anyone else a getting a bit puzzled by the Akpom signing? I thought when we brought him in he was supposed to offer something different, even an upgrade, on Britt and Fletch. He plays almost identical to those guys just worse! Did we really have no other options to blow 2-3m on??

To be fair to him he hasn’t really had the chance to get a run of games together

Bad day at the office. Don’t like these games when we are so open. Should have put it to bed in the first 20 minutes. Not impressed at all with blatant diving by Britt. If he practiced putting the ball in the net instead of trying to compete with Tom Daley we would have won the game today. I do think that fatigue played a part and think that he should rotate the players a bit more.

Yep. Its a tough schedule, but its the same for everyone else. We can't use it as an excuse.

Only mitigating circumstance is we maybe have a smaller squad than some.

Only other thing I can think of is that Warnock's preference for man-marking and pressing is taking everything out of us in the first half?

Not sure Bola or Howson did much wrong either.

I'm honestly so *** off after this match.

Aye that's true, still not brilliant from them either but it was just an awful game all round really.

Same, this is the first time I've been furious with us all season, hopefully it's just a one off and we get back to normal next game because that was absolutely atrocious!

I'm not making excuses I've already in this thread criticised the lack of substitutions today. Regardless of whether they are professional athletes, the human body will eventually feel the effects of fatigue. We've played twice a week since about Mid-October, with a 2 week break for international fixtures of which some of our players played upto 3 more games in that time. 

Every other team in the league is in the same position as us, but the main difference is that we have one of the smallest squads in the league. Of that small squad it's been depleted further by Fletcher who has been out injured since September and Hall who has also not featured for us since September.

We were crap today, but I think a small part of it can be blamed of a bit of tiredness.

Fry did ok, Tav did ok before he was hooked I thought.  Don't remember Bola getting done too often either.

Fry was not up to his usual standard but I agree with you on Tav and Bola doing okay, I don't think Tav should have been taken off. Just a bad game all round really.

Strange one today as we didn't click as a team but I am also still scratching my head on how we actually managed to get beat today (without the obvious answers).

Yes we were defensively poor for the 1st time this season,but we should of had the game out of sight in the first 30minutes. 

For the first under Warnock including last season, we looked like a team that concedes a bucket full of goals. I'd just put this result as a bad day at the office but I fully expect us to go with Morsy, Saville and Howson against Swansea as a bounce back.

Maybe the condition had something to play with Roberts hamstrings, but I find it extremely odd for not bringing him on when it was clear as day to see there was gaps in behind their midfield. If Tavernier had a final ball/end product in him then we would of punished them as they were just as bad as us defensively.

Surely you must see on this forum that fans don't mind seeing us get beat as long as play offensively 😂. Always said it's a fine line regarding about entertaining football and getting results.

I don't get why we were so open today we got the lead should of parked the bus. But tried to keep attacking then caught on the counter. We were punished for thinking we were better than what we are due to the chances we had in the first 20 mins. Reflects badly on the attitude of the players today we seemed arrogant.

    • Hi all, Cardiff fan in peace always had a soft spot for Boro ever since seeing your support in Cardiff early doors in the FA cup in the 90's.     Anyway after reading some comments about it will be a walk in a park for Cardiff, I dont think it will be.  We are beginning to look tired, we are not used to the high press we are currently playing at the moment, if the scores are remaining level after 70 mins then I can see you sneaking something. You have a manager who knows how to grind out results in this division, so its not all doom and gloom for you.   Anyway i hope we win on Saturday, but after that I hope you at least make the playoffs.    All the best to you 👍
    • What an absolutely stupid, pointless and annoying quiz. (9/22)
    • As the great Bill Bryson once said: It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavours look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side-effect. I don't wish to denigrate a sport that is enjoyed by millions, some of them awake and facing the right way, but it is an odd game. It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as players (more if they are moderately restless). It is the only competitive activity of any type, other than perhaps baking, in which you can dress in white from head to toe and be as clean at the end of the day as you were at the beginning. Imagine a form of baseball in which the pitcher, after each delivery, collects the ball from the catcher and walks slowly with it out to centre field; and that there, after a minute's pause to collect himself, he turns and runs full tilt towards the pitcher's mound before hurling the ball at the ankles of a man who stands before him wearing a riding hat, heavy gloves of the sort used to handle radioactive isotopes, and a mattress strapped to each leg. Imagine moreover that if this batsman fails to hit the ball in a way that heartens him sufficiently to waddle sixty feet with mattresses strapped to his legs he is under no formal compulsion to run; he may stand there all day, and, as a rule, does. If by some miracle he is coaxed into making a miss-stroke that leads him to being put out, all the fielders throw up their arms in triumph and have a big hug. Then tea is called and everyone retires happily to a distant pavilion to fortify for the next siege. Now imagine all this going on for so long that by the time the match concludes autumn has crept in and all your library books are overdue. There you have cricket.
    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.
