What should have been a happy Sunday ends up just leaving a nasty taste in my mouth

Marvin Johnson is an absolute ***. Hope he’s never seen in a Boro shirt again.

Well yippe we're out the relagation zone 😄

We're also no longer the lowest scorers in the league :)

In my opinion trying to protect the lead is the right thing with our defence.

We regularly get carved open when we have 11 men on the pitch, trying to play more attacking football with 10 I think would have been even more of a disaster than that was. 

For me woodgate is stuck between a rock and a hard place and those dropped 2 points fall squarely on the shoulders of johnson.

10 games without a win is very concerning, my goodness the Barnsley game is mammoth

Let's all blame Johnson for Woodgate's tactics after he got sent off 🙄🙄🙄

Sorry - but it’s a bit unfair to be  hammering the manager for bringing off 1 of 2 attackers to try and defend a 2 goal league. Almost any manager would do that - and it makes sense tactically. You could argue that he took the wrong player off - as assombolonga is not great at chasing down defenders on his own (but he had a great first half). 
 

Johnson is to blame. Idiotic red card and totally uncalled for. Shame because we actually looked like we were playing good football. I think this season is pretty much a dead duck. We’ll find a way to pick up enough points (to stay up) and need to clear the forest of deadwood that is our playing staff at the end of the year.

At least there’s positives we can take.

we carried on our improved form from the qpr game, we got a couple of good goals and the players looked transformed in the first half.

Its a sickener to only get a point but playing over the full 90 minutes has been our downfall all season. It’s definately better than earlier in the season.

...aaaaaannnnd breathe and relax...

 

As good as Boro were in the first half, they were absolutely dire in the 2nd half. Suppose you can at least partly put that down to Woodgate's reaction to Johnson's sending off...but surely the players should have the common sense to realise that camping in your own penalty area and letting the opposition have so much time on the ball isn't a recipe for success?

Granted Hull's first goal was a bit out of nowhere...but their equaliser felt pretty much inevitable. Boro were also pretty lucky they didn't manage to get a winner.

Overall, a draw feels like a fair result (and I would have taken it before kick-off).

Yes Johnson was an idiot to get himself sent off like that...but the rest of the team need to realise they've got to step up and not just retreat into their shells.

    • It depends which Boro turn up. We're due a win though. Maybe Britt will be firing on all 4 cylinders this time instead of being as nervous as a kitten every time we play them. There's no crowd to put him off. WE need a long run off you Erimus 74. Do your stuff...      7: For those planning to visit Australia when this Covid pandemic ends Burger King in Australia is called Hungry Jack's, due to © issue in Oz They're both crap but Burger King is less crappy, or slightly superior to Macdonald's, which is more popularly known as Macca's here in Australia.
    • Which Pearson?  Nigel Pearson as manager (I'd rather keep Warnock...) or the Preston player that's just signed a new contract there (was mentioned on here before he signed new contract)? 
    • If we're including loans, did Kalas have two loans with us (or was it the other defender we had on loan around the same time)?
    • Interesting how the gazette are starting to run Pearson articles... 
    • Didn't realise they had started to turn the corner, a few years back it didn't matter what form they were in when playing us we would never beat em, this winless run started in 1974 & finished in 1999 We fared better since but I don't like playing Forest at all, it's always one fixture, Leeds been the other when in the same league, that I look for & hope they're out the way early doors
