Boro Vs Cardiff 2-1

Recommended Posts

I think it was really important for us to throw down that challenge to the teams above and around us. We had a chance and we took it with both hands. Look at how it's payed off. Ipswich and Bournemouth have dropped points and that puts us in a great position, the momentum should be with us for future league games regardless of what anyone else is doing.

 

Brentford is going to be crucial. A win there will put us in the driving seat.

Thanks for that NB. Cardiff always do great extended highlights.

 

I will say take that with a pinch of salt though. Cardiff didn't control the game anywhere close to what that highlights package suggested. We were comfortable on the ball, didn't press enough in the first but dominated. It wasn't against the run of play at all.

I was just thinking that. Looked a lot more dominating than it sounded on the radio.

 

A few thoughts. Definate penalty for Kike and I wouldn't complain had Clayton been sent off. What was he thinking going in like that. Suppose those two even up. Some great runs and crosses by Reach for both goals. The defending for their goal left a lot to be desired. Ben Gibson was right to be so mad when Jones headed the ball in.

One of the comments on that video is "Slade out"!! How fickle are fans these days? He's only taken them over in October when they were 17th and dropping, has got them up to mid table, and hasn't had chance to change the team around yet as it's his first transfer window...

Well, Bournemouth, Watford, Norwich and Derby have lost or drawn almost half their home games and have conceded on average at least 1 goal pr. game. Brentford on the contrary have a better home record than all of those. Ipswich is the best home team and we have already been there.

Taking over after Solskjaer was like Mogga taking over from Strachan. Needs at least a year to adjust the team to the Championship

It was a classic case of him slicing the ball to the opponent, then trying to make up for his mistake. Apart from that, he had a good game.

The commentators were shocking on the Cardiff highlights. Apparently we scored "against the run of play" despite the fact that we completely bossed the game and the best they could muster was hoofing the ball into the box for Revel or Emnes *cough* err I mean Jones.

 

As for Clayton's booking, when I first saw it, it looked like Clayts went in late on Revel, but looking at the replay, Alex Revel lunges in off the floor for a 50/50 and realises his mistake. If Clayton rolled around on the floor after the tackle Revel would have been sent off for a totally reckless tackle

Also they've conveniently missed off a few of our chances (like Friend's free header in the first half, and Kike's header in the second) to make it looked like they bossed things

North Korean-esque favouritism on those highlights. Also agree with Luke's assessment of the Clayts tackle. I definitely see less wrong on the replay than initially thought, and I didn't even initially think it was more than a 50-50 when I saw it on Tuesday from my vantage point in South Upper

    • I don't think anyone thinks the performance was good. I'm just not putting much stock into a game I expected us to lose for the reasons we lost it. The best I can say is we tried to do something different to how we played against Millwall, the last time we played a team like this. Between the two games, I think yesterday's loss of points was more down to individual performances than the tactical battle which is a positive for the tactics as much as it's a negative for some of the individuals in the team. Maybe next time, if we pick the right players, we'll get something more out of the game. It's early days, we can be forgiven right now for thinking we have room to experiment and not be too worried whether it goes right or wrong. That's all part of the learning curve.
    • Same story in Tampa  Buccs 18 up at half time .. Now only 3 up and Giants have the egg I hope it will end well, like your Bills 😉
    • Bills completely dominated the Bengals for the entire first half and somehow only scored 14 points. 250+ yards to 77. Gave up 17 unanswered in the 2nd half before a 4th quarter TD drive and a game sealing pick get us the 21-17 win. 3-0 but we should have been 30+ up at half time.
    • Packers now 3 wins in 3. Great start to the campaign. At least they didn't let me down. 😂
