not sure he meant that all fans who dont attend games are keyboard warriors and the real fans are only those who attend, but more the fans who only sit and write negative things on forums and social m

No matter the result today this is much more like it, we’ve competed, made chances and got goals. Yes it may not be perfect but we’ve played football for once.

Why would it be to spite keane? Surely randolph playing rubbishes all of the rumours from this week.

We HAVE to be happy with a point, there.

Yep. Fair result, given the performance of the teams.

Was fairly pleased with Boro's attacking play. We looked a bit static and slow to react at times, when we could have won the ball back, but took our chances when they came.

Defensively we're still a mess...but at least we kept our composure to see out the stoppage time and kept pushing for a winner in the closing stages.

I thought we'd get beat comfortably so I am absolutely thrilled with that. 2 goals, should have been 3. Probably should have poked home the one at the end that got stuck in Fletchs feet too. 

Think we were the better team for 65-70 minutes of that game. Didn't really give up that many clear cut chances, I'd say 3 or 4 all game, which with Randolph back there is fine IMO. 

Don't think there was a bad performance out there today.

It certainly helps us when teams insist on playing out from the back against us. When we're on it with the press in those games, we have a chance. The game was so open in the second half of what I watched and we looked like we might make them pay for it a few times, sometimes our passing was still a bit woeful though.

Still, another point on the board, positive performance going into the break, take what you can get, look onward to Hull next.

Hey guys, as far as moral victories go we won 3-2 because I'm 99.99% sure that Ayala was not offside.


I bet we're safe and sound on the moral victory table, to be fair! 😂

    • Aw come on, Transfermarkt only has him down as being worth €17m! 
    • Bournemouth, Southampton, Leicester City ,Sheffield United, Norwich, Watford, Burnley, Leeds, Aston Villa, Wolves, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Fulham, West Brom we used to be on a very even par with them all and I would suggest above par at certain times. In relation to this season where the hell did it go so wrong with those teams above though yes I accept that we will be playing against 3 of them next season we all know we did not set the world alight with last seasons relegated clubs. Ok yes I am living in the past somewhat but still believe we could still be at their level and competeing with them all
    • In fairness to Gibson, he's not likely going to invest a lot of money while Warnock is in charge. I expect he'll be given a modest transfer budget...just a bit more than he had this season. Its not going to be another Garry Monk spending spree, thats for sure. At the moment I think the club is in damage limitation mode until they can get fans back in the stadium and money coming through the turnstiles. I think its a case of better the devil you know. We're not likely to improve much next season, but another mid-table finish will do while the club gets back on its feet financially and is in a position to attract a better standard of manager. I mean, if you were a talented and ambitious manager, would you look at Boro as a good career move right now?  
    • Indeed. We can point to lack of quality and strength in depth, (which definitely were factors), but how often did Boro concede ridiculously soft goals, either due to inept keeping or defending...basic schoolboy errors? If we'd at least been decently organised at the back, (not watertight - just decent), we might well be looking forward to the play-offs.  
    • We finished exactly where I expected us to, in all honesty. Always found the talk of play offs baffling when we just about stayed up last year and didn't improve the squad in any meaningful way.  You can get promoted with average players and a great manager (likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd, Burnley) or you can just have a bigger squad with much better players than everyone else (Bournemouth, Watford, WBA, Fulham etc). Then you get Wolves, Norwich, Newcastle that have both and walk the league.  We had the money to make a bigger, better squad than everyone else and blew it... We've also had about 5 opportunities to get the manager right. Now we have neither and that won't be changing over the summer, so I think people need to be realistic. Is Gibson working behind the scenes to bring in an ambitious, upcoming Bundesliga manager to take over Warnock's steady mid-table ship? Find it hard to believe personally.  Foreign billionaire fancies an investment in the north east? Again, highly doubt it... and careful what you wish for anyway and all that. We're a mid-table Championship side until a big catalyst comes in.
