70 Minutes.

70 *** MINUTES.

70 *** minutes to make changes after what, realising that hoof ball and high balls into the box wasn't working against a tall and strong Cardiff defence, shock *** horror.

Neil Warnock, hang your head in shame. You got it totally *** wrong yesterday and I'm still annoyed, we could have easily won that if you'd just done what every Boro fan could see needed doing at half time.

Sorry, but that's not a point gained in my eyes yesterday, that was 2 points lost.

Oh and Britt can *** off forever, I never want to see that useless, lazy, arrogant *** in a Boro shirt ever again!

I actually thought Boro played a fair bit of decent football, stroking it around on the deck for periods.

True, the final ball was almost always a high cross, which the Cardiff defence mostly dealt with very comfortably, but its worth noting our equaliser also came from another lofted ball into the box.

But after that we did resort to some truly horrendous hoofball. How the hell we ever expected to make anything happen with the ball spending most of the time in the air, I'll never know.

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

Introduction  I don't know where to start with this thread,  our season appears to be in a state of flux and Boro fans are struggling to know how to feel  We could probably do with a ni

Better team, deserve to come away with something - their goal was very predictable.  Anyone saying Warnock out, ridiculous.

It’s just football mate, don’t let yourself get so wound up.

Out of curiosity, anyone think that the Pack "handball" would have been given if it was against Man U 🙂  

I genuinely don't.

From my viewing, it hit him in his chest and didn't touch either arm, even United couldn't get a VAR decision to ignore that.

Fair enough...  initially thought arm to chest, but happy to go by a view from someone that is willing to give an honest opinion

I've only watched it once live and then on the highlights this morning, I could be wrong, but I think it was a shout of desperation from our players rather than a genuine belief that he'd handballed it.

I think that is incredibly harsh.

He's not been thrilling so far, but he's already looked more like doing something than Ravel Morrison ever did.

He's also had a consistently decent career, whilst Morrison has done nothing in 10 years.

 

He has been crap for us although he's clearly had a better career than Morrison.  If Spence, Coulson, Johnson played like he has for us so far then nobody would be giving him them time of day.  He shouldn't be anywhere near the team at this moment in time.

Yeah, I thought the same.

Barnsley got a decent foreign manager in. 

They finished below us last season but only miracle worker Warnock could have turned Boro around.  Probably say something similar about the Reading and Stoke managers as well.  But anyway, Warnock and crap football is all that we can possibly aspire to.

After the histrionics and dressing room schisms of Aitor's tenure, I don't think we'll get another foreign manager during Gibson's reign. Which is a shame, because he's ignoring a huge pool of fine managers beyond the usual merry-go-round of Bruce/Pulis/Warnock/Allardyce et al.

Like it or not, our managerial future involves either a hoofball veteran or an unqualified rookie, both with an English accent. We just have to hope someone - either Warnock or his replacement - can add some enjoyment to the endless hoofing and hoping.

 

Now you're making me wish for an oil tycoon to come in and buy Gibson out.

Wasn't it Brian Clough who once said, "Football isn't a matter of life and death...its more important than that..." 🙃

    • Lad on FMTTM claiming Hoilett is a done deal, take from that what you will...
    • I mentioned a while back about what would attract players to come to us in comparison to other teams “at our level”.    After the good training facilities there weren’t any other suggestions.    We need to attract players to play with a vision of excitement and something that will get the riverside bouncing. Would you want to sign for hoofball and a groan filled riverside??    I wish I had the optimism of some of the members thinking that magically we will go against our norm for this transfer window. Expect more “players to drift”, players out of “boro’s budget” and “stalling talks” to be a common theme.    Even IF by some mirical you wanted to sign for us, wouldn’t you be on borrowed time whilst Warnock is only here for one more season? Added to that how he’s thrown players like Akpom under the bus, I’ll ask again. What about us as the moment is an attractive option?  🧐
    • Don’t think it’s been mentioned but Millwall are after Lumley. also an unnamed championship team have looked at William Boyle. Big centre back with a few goals in him. Don’t know anything about him and it’s probably not us but hey it’s prewindow
    • 30+? ❌ Over 6 foot? ❌ Worse than Jordan Rhodes on the ball? ❌ Don't think he'll be a target for us this summer by the looks mate
    • Forgot Liverpool still had a game in hand. A draw is the best result. Thankfully Iheanacho has just got one back.
