Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Here's an even better question but it's quite a long one.  Why did we sign Bamford and Gestede for a manager that didn't want them at the time, then 6 months later, appoint a different manager wh

Anyone watching Burnley v Newcastle?

Newcastle had a pen denied in similar circumstances to Branthwaite/Fry.

Baffling that it wasn't given, they don't even have the excuse of no VAR.

Wouldn't even need to make contact for that to be a foul elsewhere on the pitch.

@TeaCider24It's just bizarre, personally I think that is more down to the rules in the game itself more than VAR. 

We should try and make incidents like that a bit more black and white, take the interpretation side of things out. People might not like it at first, but it'll sort these strange swings out.

Yep an entertaining game, 2 great goals from Newcastle. 
 

The ref was spot on with the penalty decision, it was accidental, there was no way he saw the Newcastle player rushing in. 

Big turnaround for Newcastle.

For me personally that's a foul (and a pen) it's an accident but it's still dangerous play. Similar to when Fry was booted in the head.

I didn’t think the Fry incident was anything other than an accident either, but it happened in our own penalty area in any case so even if a foul was given, it would have made very little difference.

Yeah I think both incidents were accidents, but they were both dangerous and should have both been given as fouls. I could be wrong but I'm sure it was from our corner (attacking the Blackburn box) that the Fry incident happened?

Now you're wrong on TWO fronts.

It was in the opposition box & it's still a foul & pen & red card, regardless of what you continually try and claim.

My mistake, I thought the incident took place in our own box.

Ah yes, my mistake. In that case they are both identical scenarios. Do you think either warranted a red card?

I'm not 100% sure myself if it should be a red, due to the circumstances of both, maybe a penalty and a yellow. 

If both defenders were clearly looking at the attacking player coming in and still made the same decision, I'd say a red would be fair in that case.

@Brunners I don’t think it’s correct to categorically say I’m wrong on two fronts (and in capital letters too!) it’s my opinion that neither incident should have been penalised and I’m entitled to that opinion, as are you yours.
Try not to be so aggressive please.

That’s fair enough, you could be right, although the dastardly VAR system couldn’t convince the ref, which I find odd as things always look bad in slow motion.

    • I'm so happy to read considered opinions on the subject, i must admit I've been lazy and only getting my boro chat from the Gazette website comments sections recently which are jam packed with very very dubious posts about politics and Marxism and subverting everything that is english by taking the knee.   I'm very interested to see what happens, if an england player scores then takes the knee. The perma outraged booing mob will be conflicted af and so I'm sure it's going to happen.    Reading comments here has restored my faith fair play to oneboro, I will not stray again...    living in NZ now so I'm excited about the euros, but not enough to watch at 1am with work in the morning!    in the past I was always excited, then we'd do rubbish, so I lost hope, then just fudge through the group stages and start to look up for it in the knockout phase getting me excited again only to crash out in controversial or underwhelming performance circumstances.   now it's fair to say I get more excited as the tournament wears on, always with a shield around my heart in case we get knocked out by a hand of god or uncounted goal that bounced a yard behind the line. we had a bit of luck in '66, but I think we've paid for it ever since.   a young squad with a lot of potential and a very intelligent manager, I'm hoping we put on a show for everyone.   UTB and come on england!
    • It's been all over the place since Eindhoven.
    • we realy don't know how the club operates behind the scene.    
    • im guessing you are trying the same tactic as me - end up at that bottom and then in the knockout stages swoop to eliminate a top seed!!! 
    • Lets hope he gets the team right. England expects. Will he start Grealish, is Maguire fit?
