I am still stunned at how he managed to do that Silhill.


Yes, I was (almost literally) rubbing my eyes in disbelief. And the samw with the Kodjia header which somehow looped onto the roof of the net - it was in all the way as it cleared Randolph.

On a more positive note, been on one of the boro forums. If other fans think we're deluded, should have a look on there.

The prevailing sentiment- great result, but we're crap. Ignoring the irony of that for a moment, the highlights indicate we were better than them at 11vs11, 11 vs 10 and 10 vs 10.

Sad fake geordie snogger twats.

Yes and Thors header in the first half as well. I thought it was in from our angle. Couldn't believe it when the ball kept going past the net.

You cannot pin the blame on Bruce for these misses . It should so easily have been 2 or 3-0 , we just aren't getting the breaks

But you can apportion 100% of the responsibility [blame?] on his doorstep cos he dictates the style of play, the 'tactics', he is supposed to select a team where players are put in their best positions, passing forward, running forward, movement off the ball blah blah. He doesn't do this, he is like a safety match without the striking surface. Sure you can't blame him for some missed chances, no team ever scores from all their chances, the trick is to create more in the first place.

True you cannot blame Bruce for the misses.

But, had the plan changed in the first half then we wouldn't have left ourselves 45 mins I.e the second half, to win a game.

I'm still pissed off at the thought of us lamely passing the ball from side to side against 10 men in the first half when we should've been attacking with pace and intensity from all areas of the pitch.
That is the fault of Bruce and his safety first approach.

So true Melon.

Every game especially the home games I say to Sir Dennis jnr that we need to blitz the opposition from the kick off and throw everything at them for the first 20 minutes or so and hopefully get a goal or two,

Sadly it never seems to happen and the crowd goes quiet and the game meanders along.

We will, but only after a long period of procrastination and hand wringing, by which time the season will be effectively over.

Last comment by me on this
No pace
No direction
Play not to lose

So draws are the subject matter with the above surely we have some young players at the club with pace we can blend with the experience to give us diehards hope

And so to Barnsley

Very true but Hogan's stop from Hourihane was nothing short of brilliant .


The only positive I can really take is that Hourihane gets into good positions and is pretty useful when played further forward. Disappointed he wasnt more composed at the death with that volley from the corner. Feeling more justified in my defence of him.
