Boro v Leeds United (A) 1-2 (Assombalonga (pen))

Recommended Posts

I'm getting sick of jansson asking for a booking after every foul now just cause he got one.

 

this is the worst refereeing I've ever seen.

 

we've been poor, but we're playing against Leeds and the refs here. completely different game if we get our penalty after 8 minutes.

 

also I'm sure Leeds collective penis has been sucked dry by this commentary team already.

 

Haha agree with your last point Brunners, it’s been really winding me up!

Leeds look the better team, we look so poor again.

 

The fullbacks are a problem and they've got very little protection ahead of them either.

Lets not blame the ref for the poor performance. Am sat watching with a Leeds fan and the ref has been poor to both side. Leeds have out played us, more passion more determination. We have showed very little going forward and poor defensively..regardless of refs a good team still wins

 

not blaming the ref for our poor performance.

 

I'm blaming the ref for HIS poor performance.

 

at the end of the day if he makes the right decision on that Britt penalty shout this game is totally different.

 

we've been bad but that IS a game changing decision he's got wrong.

 

 

And I'll add he's been bad both ways, but I think Friend has been screwed by him because his booking was soft as *** and then he nearly got sent off despite not committing a foul.

 

but with these bookings, tav and ayala should have been booked too. he's inconsistent as well as usually wrong.

Not always true but agree that today our performance hasn't been good enough to be winning this game. I just don't think Leeds' has been either. I don't think they got that much better after the goal like some said either, pretty much more of the same from both sides.

Yeah we didn't play much better than this for the Sunderland game, just today the team we're against has a lot more quality.

Do we make a big change and swap both tav and friend? I think friend really needs to come off he is growing into a liability right now

Tavernier is struggling to get into the game. I'd be happy for us to gamble by bringing Traore on for him. Their LB is on a yellow so would massively struggle with a fresh Traore running at him.

The only reason I'd bring Friend off right now is because of the booking. Not to say he's been playing well enough but I think we need to make changes further up the pitch and not rock the boat too much yet.

I'm not a fan of Traore by any means but I think if it were me I'd get him on. The Leeds players are so up for this they would end up kicking him all over the park, the outcome of which could be positive.

The penalty appeal was after 5 minutes, we've had/got plenty of time to put that behind us.

    • Over the last couple of years I have started watching NFL so only grasping the rules gradually. But was wondering given my limited knowledge did Green Bay make a huge howler last night going for the points rather than the touch down right at the end or would it have not mattered. 
    • If we are to be reliant on Grant Hall then I'm genuinely worried. I didn't rate him but figured he would bulk out the squad with some experience so fair enough. He looked very ring rusty at the start of the season but I hoped that with a few months under his belt he would settle in. Now another lengthy injury lay off and I can't see him returning to a standard that we immediately require. In time he may improve but there is always that risk of a Gestede moment just waiting to happen. If Dijksteel is out we need to switch Howson to RB and bring in an additional CB on loan if we can't buy. The Tav injury I'm guessing will mean some time out for him if it is as bad as it looked. If we go with Watmore on one side and Johnson on the other with Spence/Coulson as back ups we can muddle through if Tav isn't out for long but the thin veneer of the squad is very apparent. The obvious would be to use Roberts instead of Tav especially if we are playing Howson behind him but I think Tav's grandmother has a better chance of getting game time.
    • He’s a victim like many Chelsea managers of the expensive signings not working out! This could be down to many factors but it’s a results driven game so makes sense for him to go.   Lets hope we weren’t after any players from Chelsea as this may not happen now.
    • Frank will be a Premership manager in his next role. I don't think there's any chance of him dropping to the Championship, even if he has to wait a little longer for an opportunity. He's very highly regarded by people in high places. He'd be the perfect fit at West Ham, but Moyes is doing a good job so can't imagine them changing manager any time soon. Supposedly Hasenhüttl is of interest to Chelsea. If so Southampton could be a decent fit. (EDIT: Scrap this last bit. It's Tuchel who's got the job by the look of it).
    • Wouldn't have him here myself at all. Think the fact he was in charge with all those top players flattered him.
