Just booked Randolph there, I wonder if he got it for feigning injury 🤨

FT

2-2

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.

Really enjoyed that game.

End to end and both teams could have won it, both teams having bouts of bad luck.

Easy to say when he's scored twice, but Assombalonga played very well.

2-2 is probably a fair result. Either side could have nicked it. It's positive that we got a couple of goals and played a lot better.

I don’t see it that way. Should be winning that. The ref has made some very dodgy decisions

That point could be precious come the end of the season

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

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.

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

Knowing our luck they'll confirm that in the EFL show tonight.

    • 7 definitely has to be the target! Have a feeling we will fluff one of the home games and get an unexpected win against Swansea or Preston.
    • Is it possible Gibson might be coming in on loan to replace Ayala who might be sold in January and we will then look to replace Ayala more long term in summer?
    • Since losing at home to WBA 1-0 in the final minute, on the 19th October, the Boro have played 9 games losing 2 of those games, we now sit 4 points above the relegation zone with a better GD than the bottom 4 teams, things are certainly looking better than a few weeks back Swansea, sitting in 11th place on 31 points are winless in the last 5 games, Boro are faring better with 2 wins, 2 draws & a loss over the same period The academy players who have been introduced this season have played their part, but the main area we are struggling with, which needs to be addressed in January, is that of a goalscorer Pears is deputising well in goal, Spence has come in & done a commanding job, Coulson who has performed so well this season, along with some of the experienced players, McNair continues to improve & excel in his midfield role, not only making that excellent pass leading up to the penalty but converted the spot kick himself, Ayala a commanding centre half, who, IMHO, is a must to be kept & offered a new improved contract  Are we slowly seeing the Boro turn the corner? Are we starting to gel as a uit    The 1st fixture away to Swansea City was on the 12th September 1925, Boro losing 4-0 Swansea City v Boro fixture will be the 47th fixture in South Wales between the 2 teams with the following record: Won 19 Drew 10 Lost 17 Goals scored - 94 Goals against - 83 Did you know: 18th December 1926 Boro 7 Swansea 1 & 21st March 1959 Boro 6 Swansea 2 both George Camsell & Brian Clough scored 4 goals each After signing for Middlesbrough on a wage of £25 a week, he made his debut against Grimsby Town in a 4–3 victory. Within a week of joining the Boro he was made captain, during a night out in his time at the Boro, Mel Nurse was once mistaken for train robber Ronnie Biggs, he was pulled over by police & questioned before his real identity was established   Some players who played for both clubs: Bill Harris - Born in Swansea & signed for them when leaving schoo but never made any 1st team appearances, signed for Middlesbrough & between, 1954 - 65, played 378 games, scoring 72 goals Mel Nurse - 256 appearances for Swansea scoring 19 goals, 113 for Swansea scoring 8 goals Phil Boersma - 47 appearances for the Boro scoring 3 goals, 18 for Swansea scoring one goal John Mahoney 77 appearances for the Boro scoring 1 goal, 110 for Swansea scoring one goal Dimi Konstantopoulos - Played 4 games on loan in season 2008-09, played 98 games for the Boro between 2013-2019 Danny Graham - 33 appearances for the Boro, scoring 7 goals, 54 appearances for Swansea scoring 15 goals Leroy Lita - 78 appearances for the Boro scoring 20 goals, 18 for Swansea scoring 2 goals Marvin Emnes - 141 appearances for the Boro, scoring 24 goals , 11 appearances over 2 different seasons scoring 3 goals, one being a match winner v Cardiff Kyle Naughton - 15 appearances on loan for the Boro, no goals, 151 for Swansea scoring 3 goals Connor Roberts - A season long loan from Swansea last only one loan appearance for the Boro, his contract was terminated & he returned to Swansea, 66 games for Swansea, scoring 5 goals
    • It's the type of thing this club usually does. If you go back to the Mowbray era he was told there was no money for transfers then Gibson went out and brought Woodgate back to the club behind Mowbray's back. 
    • Got to win those home games.  Lose to West Brom, obviously.  The others?  A point from them would be about all I would expect.  So, 7 from 15.
