Reading - worst defence in the league, no clean sheets, enter Boro. Hull - longest run without a win in all four divisions, enter Boro. It just isn’t happening- Warnocks promotion teams would have won

In 1801, Middlesbrough was a small farm with a population of just 25. Joseph Pease of Darlington needed a port for his coal ships, so created 'Port Darlington' and brought in Irish labourers to create

If he can’t do anymore with this squad then he needs to go

I honestly don’t even care about this result. Like I’m just empty about us now, have been most the season. Used to ruin my day when we lost. Barely bat on eye now.

I'm pleased I didn't renew my streaming subscription with the club. It was £140 last season and it was bumped up to £170 for this season. Not that I couldn't afford it, it's just the principal. I'm watching dodgy links for free and it's all very unenjoyably.

I hear people saying that its a tough one today as we had lots of chances, and it is true, but thats the style of football warnock creates.

Its basically rub of the green football, theres no real tactics or gameplay, its hit and hope with the notion that a couple of balls with fall nicely for us. sheffield was the perfect example, we didnt really create any chances, we scored one wonder goal and the second came with 2 deflections before the ball falls at mcnairs feet, in that game we had the rub of the green. Same against forrest, poor game all round be we got the rub of the green. we didnt out play either of those teams.
the problem with style is obvious, its pot luck as to whether your lucks in that week, and it always give the other team an equal chance at beating you if your playing purely for luck, then the ball could fall kindly for them also.

we need to set the team up to dominate and outplay the bad teams in the league, no just play for a lucky break. Unfortunatly warnock dosent have the ability to coach this so we need somebody in asap who can. enough of this hit and hope nonesense.

Just one more point I would like to make before I retreat to my Guinness to console me. How can an employee of a business be allowed to devalue 8 million pounds worth of assets ( Payero and Siliki) just because he doesn’t agree with the decision. I really do not like Warnock now !!

Can I slag him off for the awful tactics leading to so few chances?  We basically have to score every chance to win anything.

You can but in a game of few chances in terrible conditions they scored there chances  we missed ours . Not saying I want him to stay before that comes 😂

Except with a better manager we would hopefully play better football and create even more chances. Yes, today we should have scored some of our opportunities, I'm not denying that, but we got those chances despite NW not because of him.

Also we tested the keeper twice, actually, he made a good save vs Tav first half & McNair second.

OMG. Of course you will say that about NW. It's a bloody witch hunt.
And The highlighted is why I dont comment often. Talk about under the microscope!!
I missed the first half so didnt see Tavs effort. And thought it was Sporar who tested in the 2nd half. His first effort was pathetic. Had plenty of time to take it around the keeper.
NW is not the best, but he is not the worst. Everyone screamed for Pulis to go. Things didnt go too well after he did did they?
Unless we have a decent, and I mean DECENT option to replace NW then I think everyone should just calm the fk down.

Good Strikers probably average a 1 in 3 ratio of goals to chances. We missed two great chances but the problem is we do not create enough chances which is why our missed chances are so costly.

Our tactics today as with most other games under Warnock since the start of 2021 were dull, uninspiring, mentally weak, solely reliant on easily read long balls which failed miserably as they have for ten months now. The Sheffield Utd result was a blip and nothing to believe that we had turned a corner, we just got them on the right night and defended for our lives to keep them at bay.

Wow a NW and a Pulis apologist in one post.

We were never this bad under Pulis and have not got anywhere near as high as we were in the league under him. I don’t get why people keep going back at Pulis when he’s the best we have had since relegation

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
