There isn't a keeper in the world who saves that first goal imo

Personally I think that Bettinelli is not a good goalie and I don’t blame him for that goal but there are thousands of goalkeepers in the world who would have saved that one. What a ludicrous statement to make 🙄

K Look, he magicked him out of the water!

Quest will usually side with the ref from what I've seen over the past few years, so the fact they unequivocally didn't in this instance says it all to me.

Well a drunk goalie full of Guinness would have been lying against the post and the ball would have hit him for a start. Put that against the not a goalie in the world would have saved it and see which one makes more sense 🤷‍♂️

I would like to add whilst am not a Bettinelli fan I do not blame him for the goal v Swansea.
 

His issue is he has been general shaky throughout the season and inspires little confidence. There was a set piece cross v Swansea in first 20 mins where he came to punch it and got caught in absolute no mans land and Howson hooked clear. If he had done that v Cardiff for Morrisons goal then great as I felt for that throw in he maybe should have come out and taken a few men out (from both sides) and got something on ball.
 

He seems to do the wrong things at the wrong time, especially when it comes to crosses which is a big worry given championship football focuses a lot on set pieces when trying to get a goal

If you get into the position Bettinelli is in and try and shift your weight from a neutral position to you left foot. The first thing you'll notice is the body shift towards that side, your knee and shoulders will dip slightly (not a lot but slightly) towards the side you've shifted your weight to.

You see that movement from Bettinelli after the ball is past Spence, not before the ball is hit or the moment it is hit. It is my opinion that Bettinelli gets caught flat footed and reacts too late.

Is he the sole factor in the goal being conceded? No. 

Is it a difficult save to make? Yes.

Should he do better? Yes.

Don't blame him whatsoever in this instance, I think he does have an unfortunate tendency to overcriticise referees at times but it's entirely justified for this match

I don't think Warnock could not say something. Stay quiet after an incident like that and nothing changes.

I'm not sure the change stems from Warnock though. I think with Warnock it's a boy that cried wolf situation. 

The fact that Lineker and other prominent members of the game have also questioned the disallowed goal, is when I think the FA will stand up and take notice.

    • Ha! Yes - Warnock doesn't strike me as a "Golden Thread" kind of guy. I guess the idea had to be abandoned once he was brought in. But other clubs have made similar philosophies work for them and I'd hope it is resurrected in the near future. Though maybe, as you say, our chairman and board simply aren't smart enough to see the benefits.  
    • Do you have a link? You probably posted it earlier but I'm very lazy 
    • I think the fact that Bevington left within months of that woodgate press conference and then woodgate was replaced with Warnock a couple of months after that shows that it was likely a difference in philosophy between the chairman and him. I could be wrong but knowing the personality of Gibson it just seems that that was how it probably went. 
    • Ha ha No I was the one who was shaking his head at the comment! Would be good to get your opinions on the station 👍👍. I was the one who was blasting Warnock 
    • Either that or they had the idea, but then were completely clueless as to how to implement it properly. Its all very well having an idea, but in order for it to work, you then have to draw up a detailed plan of what needs to happen and who is going to do which tasks. Stuff like costs and timelines also usually figure in there somewhere. We heard a lot about the idea, but very little about its execution. If they wanted Boro to be the English Ajax, maybe sending someone over to talk to the club and look at their methods might have helped? 🤷‍♂️ For the record, I really wish it had worked. I would have loved to see our academy finally fulfilling its intended purpose of turning out youngsters good enough to step into the first team and push the club onwards, instead of paying over the odds for big name players who probably don't really want to be there.
