  • We didn’t cope well with there 352 system. Ossie and McCann had stinkers but I couldn’t see Boro scoring. MON thought both goals were dodgy. It now appears the Boro goal was offside but if you look at The Boro keeper he didn’t complain much! Second ha

  • Petrov “earning” a penalty! Different club, different league but some things just don’t change…!

  • But there’s no way GB was man of the match – he was good, but there were better players. Wilfred Bouma and Ollie Mellberg for two! Ollie was superb! Never seen him go forward like that before. The penalty was definate, their goal miles offside! ANd what w

  • yep, dont understand the formation either, I am sure he had his reasons but I cant see them, IMHO Petrov is suffering from self imposed pressure, he is just trying too hard, once he is on the score sheet he should start to settle down, the game was in our

  • Definitely a very worrying result/performance. Good job maybe that we’ve got a few points in the bag?
