Boro V Hull City 2-2 (Tavernier, Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

Well, after a scrappy first 10 minutes or so, Boro were largely in control of the game, creating by far the better chances. Utterly dominant after we scored...Hull barely had a sniff of a chance.

Then Johnson sees the red mist, followed by a red card and Boro are on the back foot, as Hull sense a way back into the game.

Fortunately there wasn't much time left, so our 2-0 lead is intact.

 

Gonna need a BIG effort 2nd half, both to contain Hull and to keep some attacking play going. If we just sit back and try to hold on to what we've got, it will not end well.

Having watched the red back I was wrong, it was just a stupid bad tackle. Easiest red of the season.

It's not a silly rule. I'm guessing you've never had a football boot's studs embedded in your knee before?

Actually yes 🙂 And she was not sent off, was 20 years ago 🙂

These days you get a red if you tackle the ball with the studs, I do think its a silly rule, football is a physical game, sliding tackles are wonderfull, now you are not even allowed to tackle from behind even if you tae the ball first..... football is not what it used to be, its showing with more and more primadonnas

The thing is we looked comfortable and convinced we would go on and get more goals second half but let's see how Hull go at us from the whistle

Couple of nice goals. We cut through them really nicely at times.

Shame about the red though. It looked like a bad tackle at the time, but after seeing the replay I'm not 100% sure it was red. No need for him to tackle at all there though.

We should still see this out. Hull don't look anything special

Looking at that tackle again he doesn’t even touch him with his studs. He hits him with his heel

First 10 minutes of the 2nd half are crucial. You have to think hull will come out fighting.

Doesent matter as many has pointed out, you get a red if you show your studs in a tackle. Modern football 😛 Most seem to think its the way to go so not gonna complain anymore

Well thats Health & Safety for you. Its not just football. Just look at the changes that have happened in cricket, rugby and Formula 1. All sports have become a lot more safety conscious over the years.

But yes, footballers in particular are pretty despicable with some of their antics, trying to get opponents booked / sent off.

But refs are only human. My initial reaction when I saw Johnson's tackle was, "Oh *** - thats a red!" So I can't blame him for sending Marvin off.

I still think its hard, but with todays rules its a red that I can agree on

    • As our leading scorer I'd be tempted to play Magic Marvin as the lone Striker with Tav behind and Roberts and Watmore on the wings.
    • Platt was my boyhood keeper, couldn't kick a ball straight, unless he kicked it straight into touch, but he was excellent for years, I would rate him on par with Schwarzer and I think the Aussie would have helped to keep us up if he hadn't gotten injured.
    • Given made 16 Boro appearances, Valdes 28 appearances and Randolph 106 appearances in a Boro shirt. Given was a 93 day maximum permitted loan but he kept 10 clean sheets in those 16 games. I'm pretty sure that Valdes will have been signed with the intention of him being around for longer than 28 games. Randolph's 106 games are maybe not what could be classed as a long serving tenure but a little more than a cameo in fairness to him. in contrast however Jim Platt made 481 appearances so I suppose by comparison they were all somewhat transient.
    • The big Auzzie was very good and for a long time.  I notice you have not mentioned Jim Platt who I rated highly also along with Pears.  For some reason I tend to regard Given and Randolph as cameo appearances which is not really fair   but who said life was fair - keep smiling
    • Some interesting replies on crowds returning.  I have a record of 65 + years of attending Boro matches and I'm anxious to keep it up but have one or three health problems so I can take no risks with Covid. transmissions.   I'd love to go but it won't be until I've been vacced etc.  If I can I'd love to go, even if its just the one game to keep up the record of at least one game in every season since 1953/4   keep smiling
