Boro v Swansea (A) 1-3 (Tavernier)

Recommended Posts

Apparently Rhodes' third was a stunning overhead volley 😂

He couldn't kick a ball properly when he was here. Glad he's got a bit of confidence.

The technical ability within our squad is on par with a kindergarten and the pace is like a retirement home. 

Been that way for years. We never seem to improve players...quite often the opposite.

Always seem to slow the game down and go into damage limitation mode after we concede, instead of pushing for an equaliser.

As games are going so far we are being dragged back into the "danger Will Robinson" area. Luton having just equalised

Maddox says we're getting in to a slow pedestrian game, c'mon Boro take the game by the scruff of the net & take the game to the Swans

Two successive corners in 2 minutes result to nothing we have to show more 

Swansea are poor but we can’t threaten them at all. It’s amazing that this is one of the highest paid teams in the league. We have a squad with no technical ability and a manager with zero ambition.

Just put Gestede on and go long. That’s the limit of our ability.

After the first 15-20 minutes I would have said we were comfortably the better team. Hadn't really created anything but Swansea were awful.

The penalty decision was soft as all hell and after that we just seemed to fall flat on our faces. As soon as we get anywhere near the final third we poo ourselves and fall over.

fingers crossed we come out with some spark second half and can get the goal back, because Swansea in no way deserve to be leading this.

Half time stats make pretty grim reading.

Swansea have had more possession (no surprise there) but its not been totally one-sided at 56% - 44%.

However the hosts have had 4 shots on target, whereas Boro haven't mustered a single one. We've edged the corner count, but obviously haven't capitalised on them.

Not sure who's on the bench but can we remove Clayton or Saville, drop Tav into the middle and get some more attacking player on. 

I'd even have Gestede on at this point.

The little bit of goodwill that was returning so quickly goes away with performances like this especially as it seems we are playing just to lose by only 1 goal!

A non event 1st half for the Borough, Luton drawing, Stoke drawing, Wigan winning, Barnsley winning 

At half time we sit one point above the relegation zone, go down figting , show some passion & fight, let's not settle for a 1-0 defeat 

C'mon Boro!
