Boro v Nottingham Forest (a) 0-3

Recommended Posts

Don't know what to make of this game to be honest, our track record at Forest is nothing to shout about and with their recent form and us as the visitors to me spends an end to that loosing feeling so to me a draw will be on the cards, probably spelling an end to any lingering hope that we could repair to a degree our own loosing run.

 

We simply can not go behind that is certain due to our failure to win a game where the opposition has scored first

Might actually start to get excited again if we win today as we might somehow sneak into the playoffs with a bit of winning momentum (albeit still playing pretty rubbish). Still not a chance we’ll go up mind.

REST! The team is hardly mobile so why would they need to rest with a few games to go. On another note I don’t think we can repeat scoring 2 mins in, out played but winning.

Also worth keeping an eye on Reading and Rotherham as they are our last two games. Ideally we want Reading to be safe and Rotherham to have been relegated by then, so neither have anything to play for. Won't be great if Rotherham are playing for their Championship lives on the last day.

Tbh, I'd maybe prefer to play a Rotherham with a load of pressure on them rather than a Rotherham that can play with more freedom than they've had for a long time and have a chance to enjoy their football.... see a lot of upsets from recently relegated teams.

Superb again BU.

 

In a time where some fans (including mayself) haven't been bothered one little bit if we lose as it's a step closer to a new beginning, you are becoming the reason fans want us to win, just for another instalment of the pulis-files (audio version).

 

Any manager that loses 4 in a row should surely be sacked though !!!

Only want to make the playoffs so we get an extra home game, we have as much chance of getting promoted as getting a Brexit deal

Very happy that Britt and Fletcher get all these games together as I don’t think we will get good enough offers to part with Britt in the summer. Would like them to be our striker partnership next season with two decent wingers and Wing and Howson central. Hugill on the bench for every game suggests that we have realized he adds nothing and will go back to West Ham.

[8am ] Alarm goes off, mental reminder pops up about it being matchday, shrug shoulders and dismiss it as irrelevant

 

[12pm] Absolutely not looking at watch thinking 'only three hours til kick-off, and I hope Britt doesn't try too hard against his former club'

 

[1pm] Whispers 'I don't care, I don't care, I don't care'

 

[2pm] Checks team, discovers Gestede is on the bench, whispers 'I really don't care, we wouldn't go up in the play-offs anyway'

 

[3pm] Puts 5 Live on with a curious mentality of partly wanting to lose so the play-offs are mathematically impossible and that baseball-capped f**kwit finally gets told to do one, and partly wanting to win so we can stage the most unlikely resurrection since that bloke in the cave all those years ago.

    • I don't think so. We were better than Swansea before they scored, we were better than them after they scored. I would bet my savings on us beating Blackburn if they'd been down to 10 men and we'd be 1-0 up. That one incident did decide the Blackburn game, and there was more than one incident in the Swansea game. I did say ignoring butterflies, as obviously we have no idea how things would pan out in the intervening matches between the refereeing shockers. It's a 46 game season, but often the margins are so tight that one or two games can decide it. Even under Pulis, we missed out on the play-offs by 1 point, we had a man wrongly sent off against Preston whilst winning, and went on to lose that game. The ref gets that decision right and Pulis may not have ended the season as a failure.
    • I’m as annoyed as anyone about the refereeing yesterday but if you really want to see why we aren’t breaking into the playoff positions the answer lies below. In the Home form table   
    • A lot of assumptions being made to get those 6 points. If our goal had stood yesterday Swansea might have picked up the pace again and beat us anyway. They sat back and let us have the ball when they went ahead.  Blackburn the incident happened at 0-0. You'd have liked our chances to beat them against 10 men and with a penalty but nothing is guaranteed.  Point is, the ref was garbage in both games but one incident doesn't decide any game and you can't say with any degree of certainty that we would be 6 points better off. 
    • You say that, but we'd be 6 points better off if the referee had been competent in yesterday's game and in the Blackburn one. Ignoring butterflies, that would have us in joint 7th and a point off the play-offs. We'd also be 2 points behind Swansea without the dodgy decisions in their last 2 games. We've been done over in more than just those two matches too.
