For about ten seconds, we looked like Barcelona with one-touch flicks around the box. Then we stuffed the corner and Boro were back.

I guess thats where we're different. I usually assume the worst of people when they do stuff like that.

I don't care if he's young, he should know better than to attempt to kick the ball when he can see someone else trying to head it.

I'm also not that angry right now. All I really care about is that he is punished after the game. Not out of revenge or spite, but to ram it home to him that he can't get away with doing crap like that.

He could have blinded a fellow pro today and he needs a big wake up call.

 

But he doesn't see him? He lifts his foot towards the ball and only sees Fry as his foot connects with him. The way you're putting it makes it sound intentional but I really can't see how it was, whether you assume the worst or not.

What we do agree on is that he has to be punished for it. Not to learn not to kick people in the head exactly, I don't think any professional footballer of any level of experience needs to learn you can't just kick people in the head. It's to learn that leaving a foot as high as that in the box is dangerous and can ultimately lead to what happened; seriously injuring a fellow professional.

I'm sure Mogga will deal with him appropriately too, if not at half time, after the game when they have time to review the incident and really have it sink in.

We look more threatening when we play football in the final third.

Watmore looks gassed not recovered from being winded. Definitely there to be won this game

Play long balls for 45 minutes with no success and then we get it in to feet with a few neat passes and we get an attempt on goal in the box. No surprises there.

Was thinking that, looked out on his feet for the last 10mins. 

Think he's still struggling with the fatigue from Covid

Disappointing it’s 0-0. Blackburn are a really bad team but we still resort to too much hoofing. To much like against Birmingham and not enough from the forest game. As soon as we get it o. The floor we look better.

Missing Dijksteel.

Wood looks vulnerable but that's no fault of his or ours.

HT.  Get them focussed and fired up again, Warnock (but don't let Morsy get too aggressive! )

Boro finally getting their act together in the last few minutes and putting some pressure on the Blackburn goal.

Just a shame we can't stick the ball in the net.

I worry about Wood and Spence on that side of the defence second half especially to counter attacks. I don’t blame the players for looking off colour that half, hopefully Warnock gets them fired up and focussed for the second half.

Yes.  Fry was standing up and got a foot in his face with the studs showing and a lot of force behind it.  Reckless and dangerous play.

Just feen a photo, agree with the comments what was the awful ref thinking of

You can get a Sky Sports pass from Now TV

Cheers but I’m in Belgium. I have a season video pass but as soon as it’s on the red button I’m screwed.

Doesn't see him?  Below is the incident seen again but slowed down a little.  I think he can see him just fine.

    • This to me feels very much like the Mowbray era of the type of job he asked to do, get rid of the big wages in players like  Britt for example bring in players who can do the same or better job for less and get competent coaching staff in who know what they are doing. I think personally Gibson trying to replicate the way he got promotion last time by getting someone in to balance the books and then have one big push towards promotion with the next manager.    If i am right, will that work? time will tell. 
    • Yeah,it still goes on,massive money changing hands there, Best of luck trying to drive past one on a narrow road,its like they own the rd & you have no business on it whatsoever, I tried it once and i threw it over a ditch!! Harder than it looks to follow to contours & falls on the rd.
    • As far as planning goes the Golden Thread was going to be how Boro would do things going forwards but the thought, logic and implementation of it was farcical. Gibson may (or may not) have wanted Pulis to stay on but it was impossible for Pulis to stay, there was already a Pulis out banner, social media meltdowns, inflatable dinosaurs and our season card sales were going down faster than Sunderland. That MFC are not very good at planning and that their Woodgate strategy (like Southgate) was flawed and amateurish beyond belief I think is a given. With a distinct lack of personnel changes in senior roles since at the club since (indeed one less) I doubt a new plan would have much more success. It is possibly better to have a wily astute manager who can source his own players via his own contacts etc. and set up a team to do what he believes will garner a promotion bid rather than try again to implement a new dawning under those given constraints and maybe to his credit SG has accepted that. The "personal circumstances" I think was pretty clear, people talk about Steve Gibson's lack of it yet you eloquently proved why he has far more of it than anyone on here. If it was that easy we would all be doing it and so would every Club in the country, I struggle why you failed to grasp that but then I have to admit that I struggle generally with a lot of your thought processes. I guess we are just wired differently. The "future" with any Championship Manager is around twelve months at best (I think the average is actually less) because the demand for instant success doesn't permit for longer. Fans inevitably get restless and want a new one and they want it now, or worse they didn't want him in the first place (Woodgate, Pulis, Monk etc. etc. just with ourselves). A plan with a particular style of football and type of playing personnel etc. is a great ideal and I'm not against it but that brings us back as to who implements the plan and for that and Boro see Woodgate and the Golden Thread. Steve Gibson has made many mistakes, some absolute howlers and his seemingly narcissistic style of control hasn't ingratiated himself very well with those under 45 years old (let alone those of us older) but if you think he is bad then I guess you didn't live through the Charlie Amer era. As Mogga would likely say "it is what it is". As fans we have two choices, get behind the team and make the best of it or walk away and watch Champions League on the telly instead of Championship at the Riverside on a cold wet Tuesday which is a typical Boro trait when times get tough. That's not a dig at anyone, I refused to renew my season card after Pulis and the Club hoped that myself and others would renew just on the basis that Pulis had gone, it worked for some but others held their nerve waiting to see who was the successor. When it was Woodgate I walked away for a multitude of reasons and that as much as anything was another reason why the announcement of his appointment was delayed for fear of losing even more Season card renewals. I have no doubt that some may decide to walk away now and if successful many will come back in time.
