Awful defending has cost us the game. MON makes some very strange decisions switching Cuellar to L/B...? Barry was poor today and needs to get back to his early season form. A point would have been fair although Alves missed an open goal when friedel should have done better, Guzan has got to be putting pressure on him for the number 1 jersey.

OH! U could have gone straight to 4th only by goal difference .What the hell is happening? I like ur team just after my team & I don't want to see any one else breaking to top 4.

Something has gone missing. These are the times when a manager should really earn his corn. Changes that were made seemed odd. Still think we need a new alternative striker though, and change our options up front. Top 4.not at this rate!

The fonz has to get a runout. Harewood doesn't change games and maybe we should start booing him because he was excellent last year when he came back from the Spuz disappointment. Some players respond to criticism and maybe he's in a comfort zone with nothing to prove or maybe he knows that his time here is up????

Cuellar at full-back meant we were always gonna struggle.

They created the better opportunities, and in my opinion deserved their day. Our home form, despite us somehow remaining unbeaten into November, has been unconvincing.

They didn't look too bad today merlin, far from it. They took the game to us, played some attractive football, and deserved the three points. Funny side though. You never know from one week to the next, what you are going to get from Boro.
