Good post KM786.

 

Having had time to reflect on the game which many of us listened to plainly and simply we shot ourselves in the foot by not being ruthless enough in front of goal, is this systamatic and part and parcel of playing for Boro?

 

Bad refereeing howlers take place all the time and you just hope that they even themselves out over a season.

 

Forest did put us under loads of pressure and it took till the second half before we played with any tempo, well at least some of the players, but due to our ineptitiude in front of goal we threw away what could have been a fine win so maybe a draw was a "fair result"

 

As far as DG goes well he does not like hard graft does he? He is ok to score when enough chances are presented to him without having to work for it and I thank him for that but clearly we do not need his attitude week in week out and besides it does seem that he does not see a future here and tbh I am ok with that.

 

This one was thrown away and we will need to work smarter and harder next game

 

Not sure where you're getting this impression from. DG probably put more miles in than anyone else on the pitch last night, chasing and harrying their centre halves.

 

Just wasn't our night - god awful decision by the ref and his assistant on the handball.

defo handball but I was more than happy when Jimmy got away with it against the Geordies, the officials missed it felt Dimi should have still kept it out. time to move on

 

Exactly Dimi was poor for the goal. We were lucky not to be behind at half time. We should have put the game to bed before the equaliser had enough chances.

Yes it was a howler from the officials but these things do even themselves out.

At least we scored again and it took a handball to score against us.

3pts at bournemouth and all this will be forgotten.

Up the Boro

Just seen the video of the goal, absolutely defies belief that none of the officials spotted that, it really is as blatant cheating as it gets.

 

How many more points would we have in recent weeks if handballs, balls crossing the line before a goal and goals that actually crossed the lines being disallowed were all called correctly?

 

One things for sure, these decisions have not evened out for us this season, im convinced of that.

Have to agree. I can't remember a previous season where I've come out of just about every game thinking the ref has been dire. Admittedly I'm not the most impartial though. ;)

Hopefully it'll even out over the course of two years and gain us promotion next year!

They had alot of the ball but they never really looked as if they might score, you couldnt say they had a great chance until that goal

I think we'd be in the play offs if it wasn't for these bad decisions costing us point after point!

Agreed, DG put a proper shift in last night, he never stopped chasing, and why do people have a vendetta against Varga ?

Yes Graham put in loads of leg work last night. When he was walking off the pitch his legs were stiff with him looking shattered. He should have taken one of his two clear cut chances though.

 

I'm not convinced by Varga. Second half he was better but first half he really struggled with their quality attackers, Jamie Paterson in particular where he completely left him for dead after a sharp turn. Hopefully we are targeting a better RB this summer to replace him when his loan ends.

Although it's hard to take, you make your own luck & if we keep plugging away we will get a decision.

Highlights. Cheating scum that Henderson. You could even see that when he got up he didn't start to celebrate before taking a long look at the linesman. It was definatley on purpose the way he swung his arm into the ball.

 

Great goal by Carayol.

That is unbelievable. Its not 100% conclusive from that angle, but I pretty much can't see any other realistic alternative. He swipes at it, unless it comes off his hip. But even then his role after 'scoring' in unnatural (as if he's tucked in his hands) and even the other Forest players looked a little embarrassed.

 

Did either manager make a comment about it?

 

One things for sure, these decisions have not evened out for us this season, im convinced of that.

 

Definitely.

 

I'm not usually one to bemoan our luck - you do tend to find that, as with most things, they do even out on the most part to some extent, give or take - but this season our bad luck can't be overlooked.

 

I would say though that the bad luck probably won't have cost us a top 6 position. Difficult to say that, given how an extra deserved point or two here and there can push you on for the rest of the campaign and effect confidence. But, realistically, it's merely cost us a chance of competing near the top 6. We'd probably still have come up short.

 

Here's hoping the good luck comes our way when we're a more genuine promotion outfit next season.

Karanka has said that it was a handball:

 

Karanka told BBC Tees: "I didn't need to see a replay. My players' reaction was enough to know it was handball. "If the scorer is humble, I'm sure he would admit it was handball."

This poor officiating at Championship level is becoming a trend, and we're nearly always on the wrong side of it...

 

Everyone hates us :(

Have we had a single decision go in favour of us this season?

    • If we can afford Hughton we can afford Karanka. I don't care about the dangers of nostalgia, just give me that beautiful man back. 
    • Bola and Dijksteel are very raw but certainly have potential. Sorry for repeating this point for about the third time on here, but them two would massively benefit from a top quality coach who will drill them defensively - someone akin to Karanka. If the plan is to buying young talent and improve them, like we are led to believe, with good coaching and game time then having Woodgate as our manager completely undermines it.
    • 2-0 to us. Bounce back from the Leeds result (I hope).
    • Either way he was cack. Relegation season if I remember right (09)?
    • Sorry to leave you waiting, work has been a bit hectic. I've broken your points into 3 areas.  1. The point I'm trying (and failing) to make is that from Woodgate's original press conference it seems he has a preferred style that he would like to play. This style is his ultimate end goal, how he would like us to play. This is obviously not going to happen overnight, hence why we have spent the pre-season and first few games playing "his style". It is my opinon that this is laying the foundations for us to play this way. At the present moment in time I do not feel the squad can competently play this style and as such we have reverted back to a style that the players have a familiarity with, that they can play. When Jokanovic took over Fulham, I'd argue that the free flowing style they went up with was certainly not how they started playing under Jokanovic in his first 6 months in charge. But I'd almost guarantee that he was training the group of players he had certain elements of his preferred style.  2. I'm one of the first to acknowledge that we weren't going to be signing 10 players due to our financial constraints. But to answer your question I do feel that if we had got another couple of wide players in, we may have seen Woodgate persist with "his style". I do also feel however that to get to this end point in style it would take more than just the summer window and the upcoming window. By saying this about signings I'm not admitting that we would be a swash buckling side that would sweep all before them, but it would be seen as another piece of the puzzle to help us towards Woodgate's style. Again adding to the foundations that are slowly been knitted together, like the fact we played a certain way during pre-season and the first couple of games.  Basically what I'm trying to get across is that I feel we are aiming for a certain style of play and that we are adding bit by bit certain elements of this style. Whether it is the pressing element, like we saw in the Luton, Brentford, Hull and Bristol City games (in my opinion), interestingly we played a 4-3-3 in 3/4 of those games. Or whether it is by the need of having more squad depth to allow us to try and play a 4-3-3 on a more frequent basis. 3. I've kind of half answered this in the bit above. It is of my opinion that we would see a 4-3-3 a lot more often this season if we had signed another winger (or 2) in the summer. The fact that we didn't for me is a key reason in us playing a back 5 often. I also feel a big problem is our total lack of creativity in the team. I also do not feel that we are a player or 2 away from implementing Woodgate's system. Jokanovic signed 11 permanent players in his first full season at Fulham, I don't think we need quite as many but certainly there are key positions we need filling. A striker who will press, wingers/inside forwards, a play maker in the middle, a defensive midfielder and for me a centre half that is comfortable with the ball at their feet.
