Credit to the lads tonight for taking advantage of a sloppy and poor Forest team and also credit to Warnock for fielding the new players and going to a flat back 4.  Even when Bola is fit, I woul

Yikes - another let-off for Boro. Our defence going to sleep again. Just lucky Forest are so hopeless in front of goal.

Could have been an equaliser on the stroke of half time.

How didn't they score there jesus

I'm probably wrong but I didn't even see a deflection on that effort, it looked like it went straight out, lad seemed to get it completely wrong.

Other than the goal we have been woeful again

Woeful is harsh. We're easily the better side. It's not saying much like given how bad Forest have been but we've mostly managed this game fine.

Bit harsh for me, we've not been good, but there are flashes of quality there, just a bit disjointed going forward. Need to sort out the defence though as we look as leaky as anything

I think the defence has done ok mostly.  The players ahead of them haven't done as well, just like Hernandez right at the end there.

I think we are our own worst enemy at times. Honestly someone needs to take charge and start talking, directing play.. 

Not sure what the ref sees but some of the calls, throw in and corners are just plain wrong.. Can’t believe I’m saying it, hell I’ve caught a NW. 

Need the second goal to see this out. The crowd have turned and it’s never a better time to ram it home and take advantage…

Well it was a pretty lively, end-to-end game for the first 15-20 minutes. Looked like it could be a bit of a goal fest with the forward lines of both teams being pretty active and both defences looking suspect.

A really good moment of quality from Boro to set up Sporar for the only goal of the game (so far).

After that it broke down into a rather scrappy affair. Neither side able to keep possession for very long and looking short of quality in the final third.

The home side are showing why they're bottom of the table...but also showing enough of a threat that Boro need to stay switched on for the full 90 minutes. 

I get the feeling a 2nd goal for Boro would seal the deal. But it only takes one moment of poor play for Forest to be back in the game. Certainly not feeling comfortable by any means.

Players are under a bit of pressure for the win and you can see it. Gee an early goal in the second half and I can see it being 3 or 4.
Follow up on Saturday with a win over Blackpool and the confidence will come back and we will start playing proper football.

In view of what we do not have defensive wise maybe best policy is to keep attacking, pity we do not have a set piece taker as Tav is having another off day apart from his pass to Sporar

    • 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
