Brentford fan here. What an odd game. Felt the Boro had bigger chances to be honest. Main reason I wanted to come on here was to say that during the 20 game unbeaten run, the Boro games were 2 wh

Completely disagree. Apart from the Sky games and those since lockdown, I've listened to him all season this year and he calls things as they are 95% of the time. He makes one comment everyone disagrees with, including myself, and suddenly he's one of the most biased commentators there is. Nah.

Not everyone disagrees, DurhamRed has just a few posts above you said he thinks it's a clear offside.

Haven't even let us down today - lets please remember that these are almost certainly the best footballing side in this division and have scored a whopping 49 (including today) goals in the league already.

Hoof hoof hoof. That then givens them the ball.

There would be no point in making the playoffs if we can’t compete and beat teams as such.

He’s not a commentator. He’sa expert summariser 😉

He talks too much though. I wish he would speak less. Or not at all.

Well they say an "ex" is a has-been and a "spurt" is a drip of water under pressure.

"Summer-riser" - someone who likes to get up early during warm weather?

HT.  Scoreline probably unfair on Brentford 

Really? How many chances have they had? I count one really good chance, which they scored. Since that first one went in, we have by and large kept them quiet.

If anything, we've had one goal which we were pretty lucky to score but had one chance we absolutely should have scored and they've scored their one really good chance. 1 a piece is about right, for me.

He's meant to summarise the action though, not the English language.

God, you'd argue about anything you, wouldn't ya?

I mean from Bettinelli and a few clearances sure, but you can see they're aiming for channel balls for Bolasie, Britt and Kebano with 90% of them. They're not aimless like they often have been

So far we've had 29% possession, we've made 92 passes so far with an accuracy of 54%. 31 of our 92 passes have been long balls (34%). 

Brentford on the other hand have had 71% possession, made 241 passes with an accuracy of 82%. 32 of their 241 passes have been long balls (13%). Interestingly Brentford have a long ball accuracy of 72% compared to our long ball accuracy of 39%.

Much as I expected, that half was pretty much all Brentford, following a short spell of early pressure, with a couple of corners...the second leading to the opening goal.

Very similar to Norwich - dominated possession but created few clear-cut chances. Main difference obviously was that one good move that had our defence all over the place and resulted in the equaliser.

Boro were dogged in defence for most of the half...any more dogged and we'd have had to call the RSPCA.

All square at the break is pretty fair I feel. Definitely would take this result at full time...but I feel there are more goals to come.

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
