Boro v Tottenham (FA Cup) 1-1 (Fletcher)

Recommended Posts

Brilliant performance, especially from McNair and Howson. Proud to be a Boro fan today. The performance might encourage potential signings to view joining us more favourably. And the revenue from the replay might help our FFP!

I've just switched to Sky. For some reason they have just shown a picture of us in the kit with the sash band we had in the play off season under Karanka???

Well played Boro, outstanding performances from McNair, Fry and Howson, we really are starting to look like a proper team

Roberts looks like he’s going to be some player. And Tav gets better and better. I think those two could link up very well

They've fallen a long way since then.

They've been dangerous, but nowhere close to giving us a thrashing.

Plus the best way to defend is to keep the ball away from your penalty area. We have camped too much at times.

I stand by everything I said.

ok

Woodgate got his tactics absolutely dead on. We were organised, patient, attacked at the right times, defended at the right times. Just about a perfect performance when considering the status of the two teams, just a pity they got their goal.

Went a lot better than most of us would have hoped or expected.

Boro were under the cosh for a lot of the game (no surprise) but defended resolutely most of the time, when needed and managed a few decent attacks of their own.

Overall a draw is a fair result I feel. Spurs always looked dangerous when in possession, but seemed to share our lack of quality with the final ball & finishing.

The return trip to London will add some much needed funds into the club's coffers, but I fully expect Spurs to end up in the next round.

But credit to our lads for putting in a performance that in no way embarrassed them.

Well done Boro. Had a good go at it. 

I think most fans are just happy that we give a good account of ourselfs and played for the shirt. 

We look a totally different team/club currently, long may it continue. Utb

Pretty incredible result looking at the teams at kickoff I worried but well proud of that display against one of the stronger XIs you'll find in the Prem. Mejias made a couple of brilliant saves, Mcnair/Fry/Howson were outstanding and Roberts/Nmecha showed glimpses of what they're about it's pretty exciting even if we didn't quite click it consistently on the ball today I thought we held our line well again and on to Derby hopefully we carry the confidence through again and get ourselves 4/5 off the playoffs.

I dont know if anyone else feels like they can shine a light but given the amount of times the attendance has been laughed at in the stadium this season for adding on numbers that seemingly weren't there did anybody else seem like the attendance today was ironically the other way, other than 200 250 in the north east corner and 200 250 in the south west I couldnt see a single spare seat and the attendance was about 26600, making us a 27k stadium...

Was going to ask actually. What was the attendance?

    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.  It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order:   Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!  
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB.   I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now 
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.  Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above 👍 Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.  Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.  Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.  Rav's last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.  The whole first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.  The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.  Festa's last minute equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.  Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.  01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!  We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.  Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.  Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.  The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.  It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.  Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.  How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?  Weird, football, isn't it?  04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.  The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.  Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.  There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.  We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.  I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.  I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.  Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.  Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.  I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances 😀
    • In order of age: 1. Ravenelli's in the FA cup quarterfinal that guarnteed we were into our first ever FA cup semi. 2. Zenden's penalty in the league cup final 3. Nugent's goal against Hull
