What an a enjoyable game! Thought we did more than enough to win it, just couldn’t put a few chances away.

 

Howson was excellent, good for him to silence his critics in the right way, hopefully everyone can get back behind him. 
Thought Tav was really good too, kept the ball away and created openings. Keeping him fit and on form will be key for us going forward!

 

Thought Jones actually was a little frustrating today, got into good positions and took on his man, but lost the ball more times than not.. still excited for him though!

 

Dont think it was a red for Morsy, but don’t think he was great up until the red really. Still not sold on him, and a walking yellow card in most games - just my opinion!

 

Onwards and upwards, with some more signings think we’ll be alright.

With this being out last fixture being the last before the first international break and the start of the next chants of its coming home. Boro Blackburn along with Man City Arsenal and Celtic Rangers 

If you've ever met Tony Mowbray he's far from miserable or lacking in class a top bloke actually, the club were asked if it was possible if we could supply a few players for a charity raising  pub eve

I made my return to the Riverside yesterday for the first time since Covid and lockdown hit. I’ve spoken on here in the past about losing the passion recently, largely due to a succession of years of

Just seen the Morsy red card back on Sky, baffled that that was given. 

The referee has completely bottled it, he had to be talked in to giving a second yellow to their player in the first place and wanted to even it up.

Am I the only one who thought Jones was pretty poor today? Thought there full back won the first couple battles and after that seemed he lost a bit of confidence when thinking about going past him. Lost the ball a lot.

Worked hard defensively and made a crucial interception late on though. 

He had both players over there on toast basically every time! Not sure we watched the same guy mate.

Appearence stat, just my stat not official, but since 1899 when we became a professional club, Toyosi  Olusany, became registered No960 to start a game for the mighty Boro

I was in the North stand so was too far away to make a comment on the Morsy challenge,  but I hope we never see this ref at the Riverside again, he was clueless. The standard of refereeing in the Championship is and always has been diabolical, unfortunately we just have to live with it. 

The game, I thought we played some decent football, the midfield, won a lot of challenges, we started the 2nd half well but we're not good enough or clinical enough to take advantage ,poor in the box.

Quality entertainment for me. Had everything, attacking, defending, and a pantomime villain in the ref. Top class shithouserry from Morsy, too. Love the friendly hand to the head which turns into a snide push, even right in front of the ref. Shame about his red, though, suspect it will be rescinded. Jones again was superb, even a brilliant block in defence. Great work from Blackwood to stop Olusanya from getting himself sent off. 

Given our recent record against Blackburn, can’t be too disappointed, really.

How we haven't won that game I don't know we were all over them after we got the equaliser, Olusanya's touch looked good and his movement was lively but if I have one criticism of the lad is he needs to up his fitness levels.

Howson had a good game and Tav pulled out some incredible tight control to squeeze past players but no one cold stick it in the net today. Watmore ran his socks off but you could tell he is off the pace, to be fair to Warnock the referee got so many calls wrong today I understand why he is miffed.

Jones was lively but because he was lacking a Bola overlapping he ended up getting double/triple teamed alot but he still did alright to be honest.

Overall I'd say today was a positive performance BUT we need to start winning football matches.

I like that Sky use the only angle that looks even remotely like a red.

Think we've started the season off with a few bad refereeing performances which have affected our games, feels like we should have at least another win on the board... 

We'd also have another loss as there was a nailed on pen for Fulham when we were 1-0 down. The reffing is rubbish but it's not angled one way or another, everyone suffers from it.

    • What's been ignored in all of this transfer noise is , a striker scored on his debut ,  COB
    • Found a Dutch defensive midfielder Mees Hoedemakers who may fit the requirements, unfortunately again in the highlights his defensive ability not shown.  The Italians in the previous post and this player have valuations of 1.2 million euros or less if Transfermkt can be believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTj5iZhK0Rs Also an Australian box to box midfielder I'd recommend Boro have a look at is Angus Thurgate, a big improver last season, became more of a threat going forward and  definitely handles the defensive side as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGb-QtRhfas
    • Choudhury looks he would be a top signing if he wants to come here, someone said he's rejected us twice though. Here are two other defensive midfielders I've come across on database searches, both Italian. Pity that their short highlights don't include their defensive efforts, but they both look like they can control play in possession well. Both also have been loaned extensively by their parent clubs, they might be interested in a permanent home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do1xIWsDD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYhm0Rt6PTk
    • Clearly Parker not the only coach that isn’t in charge of recruitment 
    • Just a thought but....   General concensus is we need a lcb and at least two midfielders. And in reality the only ones we've been "linked" with are greaves, choudhary and hannibal. All British based players. We also need at least one more striker, and we've been linked with hoppe, Henry, larsen to name but 3. I wonder if there are possibilities of us finding a gem or two for the defensive and midfield positions from abroad too. Especially given the eredivisie link and we have only really been linked to 1 player from the Dutch league.
