Shame that, I thought we played alright tonight although we ran out of steam.  I'm possibly being unfair here but I thought McNair was at fault for both goals we conceded.  I didn't think there was mu

Really think the new keeper needs chance now. Feel Pears should have done better for the first and was clearly at fault for the second. Just not strong enough when coming for the ball. His tendency to box it is also annoying instead of having the strength to catch it.

coulson was knackered so we took tav off and wing off leaving the knackered coulson 'our only attacking outlet' supplying our lum pof a forward.

subs *** it up totally, sav should have come of for clayton and howson come of for spence to give us legs on the right again.

One of those games where the sucker punch felt inevitable...

Still, much improved and if we play like that for the rest of the season then we might be okay.

You mean panic at the back and have goals scored against us. The team does not know how to win

The moment we decide to sit deep, is the moment we lose most our games. We don't have the defensive capabilities to sit back and defend for 20/30 minutes. 

We need to play further up the pitch on the front foot. That's when we have looked at our best.

This is my biggest frustration, the amount of times we have concede especially late on, because we sit back. Just keep playing the way we were. That’s how we scored in the first place!! We don’t have the organisational skills to defend deep for set periods of time

Well we got a point...and I would have quite happily taken that before kick-off. Overall a draw was probably a fair result.

Another game that twisted and turned like a twisty-turny thing.

Boro's lack of awareness and sloppy defensive play led to an easy opener for Forest.

We worked hard to get back in the game and scored a couple of scrappy goals...Gestede's header which just crept in, as did Wing's shot. Boro kept up the pressure and intent to get a 3rd goal for a good chunk of the 2nd half, but then started to fade in the last 15 or so. Forest got back into the game and with increasing possession and set pieces, an equaliser felt inevitable...and so it proved.

As far as Championship survival is concerned, Boro are still very much in the brown smelly stuff.

Performance-wise...did the players give Woodgate a hint that they are prepared to play for him for the rest of the season, or was it a one-off? Guess we'll find out.

I remember we played the way you describe against Stoke earlier in the season and we saw the game out so easily. Not sure why Woody hasn't ever tried to replicate that instead of just clinging on and inevitably conceding.

The Charlton and Hull games are huge for us. Win those and we are safe I think. We still have it in our hands at least.

But we never win games like that. We said it in the Prem around March and we said it just a few weeks ago. Those game are more likely to deal our fate I’m afraid.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
