Was anyone else baffled by the decision to give them the corner which led to their goal, didn't look like Raya got a touch on it. I don't think I've ever known a ref to blow his whistle so much, could only have been a couple of instances where a player fell to ground and he didn't give a free kick, not favouring one particular side I would add.

Fair result, Swansea a good side and we weren't at our best in certain areas.

We can't extend a month with the Euro's in the summer.

Get something at Boro, International break coming up so no games for 2 weeks (internationals sadly taking our players). So 2 weeks off, Pontus and Norgaard nearer fitness, then Wycombe, Barnsley, QPR, Rotherham. I know it never quite works out like this but if we can get a win on Saturday it sets us up nicely for the next 4 slightly easier games, if we have aspirations to go up we have to win those games or at least get a haul of points.
Which players will have no games for two weeks? Not that many, sadly. Don't start talking to me about "must win" games in November!!

I did caveat that with "internationals sadly taking our players"

Who said "must win games"

I said if we have aspirations to go up we must win "those" games meaning beating in general the likes of WW, Barnsley, QPR and Rotherham (whether it be November of April).

We had 7 shots. On target ONE. Goal. Swansea had 13/5.
To be fair HD header was completely unmarked and on their six yard box so should have been another one on the stats, I genuinely would put money on me getting that one on target. That would have put us 2.0 up.

Fully agree, hindsight tells me we probably should not have loaned so many players out. Still easy to say now.
Do you really think that the three players that are on loan would have made the team last night? None of the four at present are worth anymore than ten minutes playing time. Perhaps after a good loan in the lower leagues maybe but not now. Valencia may be on loan but he is gone, not up to standard.

How many loan players did they have playing. They use the Market well, just wish we would try the odd loan. Could of done with a left winger this season. Oh well.

We have a loan signing. He's playing left wing. Please just stop.

I know we dont do loans, but it doesnt xxxxxxx mean we are right.
I'm not talking about loans I'm talking about you repeatedly posting the same point. It's tedious in the extreme.

Im not saying you are wrong, but I will never not say anything if the team or a player hasnt been performing to the level the club expect. Ive never been somebody that agrees with everything for a quite life. But I do go on alot.

Any chance of you occasionally piping up with something positive as well? Just in the interest of balance, you understand. :)

Jesus Christ anyone would think we'd got hammered 5-0. Nobody really played well but we got a point against one of the form teams in the division and probably should have won if we'd taken our chances. On to the next one and cue loads of people wetting their pants over boro's 'physicality'.. This is becoming almost as tedious as watching games without supporters...

"Probably should have won?" I don't think even the most optimistic poster thought that. One shot on target all night and Raya kept the score down. Time to change your user name mate.

That was in reference to Dalsgaard’s chance which he really should put away. That goes in and I’m confident we’d win it. I didn’t say we deserved to win, clearly we weren’t near our best but still got a point and with a little more composure could have had all three. Not the disaster some are making it out to be.
