They had a man sent off in the first half an hour and got a point out of the game. This is not one of the sticks to beat Pulis with. They did well to draw with high flying Reading in those circumstances
That still shouldn't take away the good move by mcnair to first steal the ball, break forward and play an inch perfect pass across the pitch right into the feet of Watmore. At this level you would easily see a bad pass. It was a lot more than just bad defending. By that reckoning you could say that most breakaway goals are down to bad defending as the opposition team have committed men forward and left holes. McNair exploitet that perfectly.
My personal favourite quote from Woodgates interview with Carragher - “I just wanted to get away after I was sacked, but we were in a lockdown. So I went to Ibiza for 4 weeks.”
That quote alone tells you we were absolutely mental to give woodgate the job at boro 😂 couldn’t wait to go and get off his face
