Middlesbrough v Millwall 1-1 (Hugill (penalty))

Recommended Posts

I'm sick of seeing poor sides like Millwall coming here and look by far the better footballing side. Countlessly kicking the ball aimlessly upfield towards Millwall's defence, only for us to lose possession and give them chance to build up attacks, is never going to get a team promoted. I can't wait until Pulis leaves.

well against Millwall we crushed them in the stats, we had over 60% possesion and over 15 shots (only 3 on target though) but they had like 5....

 

so had to explain to some people why so many fans are dissapointed with Pulis, its not about that we are 5th in the leauge, its about how crappy we play and that stats lie a lot in football when you havent watched the game.....

Possession includes side and back passing which we are addicted to. We don’t have a squad capable of being on the front front and pressing a requirement for home games.

One thing you can guarantee, it'll be bloody awful to watch.

 

I hate being right. 

 

2 home wins in 10 now. Not good enough for this squad of players.

2 home wins in 10 is relegation form. Even if we draw the rest it's 14 points from 10 games. That's diabolical.

 

It's a good job we have taken some decent away points.

    • The first session today will just be about surviving. The Aussies get a new ball in 5 or so overs I think
    • Personally I would have liked to see Stokes score more last night, fully accept the circumstances, but if we are too passive and cautious this too can assist the Aussies. One thing for certain we can not rely on Butler getting runs if he comes in early today
    • We really need both stokes and root to get a century, not too confident with the rest of the batters left
    • Well very pleased to see England close the day on 156-3. Very controlled and patient batting for most of the day from Root and Denly have gotten us to this stage. Stokes in the last hour of the day came into bat at 5 in survival mode and made 2 runs (not out) off 50 balls. The first session of tomorrow's play will decide the outcome of this test match (and the Ashes). If Stokes and Root can survive the first 8 overs of play unscathed. At which point the new ball is available to Australia. They will then have to contend with the new ball and the threats that come with it. If they can get to lunch unscathed after the new ball I think that is when the test becomes ours to lose. At this stage I'd happily take England scoring 30 runs all session if it meant losing no wickets. It will also be England's highest ever run chase if we are successful.
    • Our problem has been that we just don't score goals, we've been amongst the lowest scorers in the championship both pre and post our 1 season recently in the PL. This season, although it's early on, seems to be going the same way. While Britt does get goals, he's not what you'd call prolific, we've been set up as a defensive team for a few years now through different managers and scoring has been an added bonus to not conceding goals.
