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.
Sadly Boro are not just relying on Barnsley losing more games than them, Bournemouth and Cardiff have to as well. Full marks to die-hard fans for optimism but it looks like 8th at best.
And for all Warnock's complaints, it is 46 games that will give us our final position. I can still remember his rant about Tevez and Mascerano's suspicious appearance for West Ham which sent Sheff Utd down. Seemingly nothing to do with Sheff Utd were there because they had been crap all season.
