Boro vs. QPR (A) 3-0 (Ayala, Friend, Traore)


Recommended Posts

Slow start, QPR the better team for first 15 or so but really didn't threaten beyond a long range shot.

 

As soon as we scored we cruised the rest of the half. Need to keep up the intensity for the 2nd half, maybe try and grab a 3rd.

Once we settled we’ve bossed this. Traore moves to the left and now running the show. He will score today I reckon.

 

And that goal from George. It’s one of them that if a Messi scored it would be goal of decade.

I wonder how far offside Bamford was there - also I know you can't be offside if an opposition player plays it, does that count with deflections or just intentional passes?

 

You cannot be "how far offside" it's like being pregnant....you either are or you aren't...

 

have a look at this

 

A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played or touched by a team-mate is only penalised on becoming involved in active play by:


  •  
  • interfering with play by playing or touching a ball passed or touched by a team-mate or
     
  • interfering with an opponent by:
     
    • preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or
    • challenging an opponent for the ball or
    • clearly attempting to play a ball which is close to him when this action impacts on an opponent or
    • making an obvious action which clearly impacts on the ability of an opponent to play the ball

or


  •  
  • gaining an advantage by playing the ball or interfering with an opponent when it has:
     
    • rebounded or been deflected off the goalpost, crossbar, match official or an opponent
    • been deliberately saved by any opponent

A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball (except from a deliberate save by any opponent) is not considered to have gained an advantage.

A ‘save’ is when a player stops, or attempts to stop, a ball which is going into or very close to the goal with any part of the body except the hands/arms (unless the goalkeeper within the penalty area)

 

I prefer Cloughy's  idea of offside....if you are on the pitch you are interfering with play....if not you shouldn't be on the pitch

Forest leading 2 nil.....has Karanka realised that it's goals that get you points?,,,,,pity he didn't realise that at Boro we may not have been in the Champs

 

We scored quite a lot under Karanka in the Championship, the main problem last season was our players weren't good enough to play anything other than defensively.

 

I think we were always the lowest scorers in the top 6 under AK

My how far offside comment was simply that I think it was tight, not that it wasn't correct.

 

And my other question was because it deflected off a QPR defender and I wasn't sure if that was enough, but judging by the rules it does appear to need be intentional.

Good solid half that! And a cracking goal to top it off. As soon as we settled we controlled the tempo pretty comfortably. Nice to shut those two commentators up sharpish.

 

Only negative I'd say is Britt is losing every battle with their CBs. Tough job fighting for 50/50s and aerial balls on your own all afternoon but he's seemed pretty lightweight and just can't hold the ball up without committing a foul. If we had a proper focal point we'd be even more comfortable.

@DZ.....I cannot agree with what you said regarding goals scored under AK....we didn't score enough...so there is the proof.

Strangely today, the same thing was mentioned in the BHA v Chelsea....and I paraphrase......BHA has the least goals against them in their position in the league, a cracking defense record BUT they are where they are because they aren't scoring goals.

its always either marginally offside or a mile offside.

 No other measurement is allowed.

9th top scorers in 2014/15, 8th top scorers in 2015/16 although that season didn't really have any high goal scoring teams.

Yeah it has to be intentional although I think that can mean something as simple as the defender looking to play the ball and then the ball deflecting off that player I think.

@Brunners....For some reason, I cannot reply to you answer.....

But I could not agree more with you.....this is why I am looking forward to AVR becoming a feature in this game.....I'm a rugby league fan too and video ref works well there.....so maybe it wasn't offside and should have been 3 up now.....just like out pen shouts last week....still Mighty Boro are leading up to now UTB

    • Good win tonight. Challenge now is to carry it on and find some consistency - something that has eluded Neil so far. As far as I’m aware, we only managed to win 3 games in a row once last season and were stupidly inconsistent from January onwards. I won’t be holding my breath but hope to be proven wrong utfb
    • I hope you applauded him during his warm up as the Boro legend that he is.
    • Reading Sheff Utd's forum they seem to think Adlène Guedioura would have been the answer tonight. Really?  REALLY?
    • Oh and one other thing I picked up on tonight, I don't know if anyone else saw it. But Payero looks so done. When he was coming out to warm up he looked completely unenthusiastic. I know some players just don't do that much but he wasn't even doing anything really, just sat watching the game. At half time, he came out to do the warm ups with Jepson and again looked defeated. His body language was that of a broken man. At one point, he stopped before doing his last sprint just to hit a nearby ball towards goal seemingly for the sake of kicking a ball. Then he completely disappeared. The other lads stayed out pretty much until the teams came out, just passing the balls about. Payero walked off and only appeared again just before the end of half time. Maybe it was a nature calls moment? Or maybe he genuinely is broken? It might be nothing but he just looked lonely and defeated, it was really sad.
    • Don't scream and shout about it but we actually played well tonight. Bamba was a clear man of the match, Lumley also played very well for the 2nd game running. And if you have to say it... the midfield worked. Of course, it helps when they're getting on the ball and able to play. All 3 of our midfielders tonight had a similar number of touches, similar number of passes. Compare that to the weekend when Crooks and Payero had nowt of the game because we didn't even bother involving them. We didn't have a great deal of possession compared to them as you'd expect, they're one of those fancy passing sides that @Blancocan't stand. They move the ball a lot, they try to pass quick and often, round the corner, between the gaps. Their problem wasn't getting to our box or around it though, they had enough chances to score. It was that when they did, they either couldn't finish or Bamba/Lumley made a block/save. This probably saves Warnock's job for the foreseeable. I felt very odd about that given the week we've had, winning didn't feel as good to me and I'm not usually like that at the game. A win is always a positive thing and I should have been celebrating with a little more conviction but part of me had royally had enough and was willing to accept a loss tonight to see if it would allow us to move on.
