After Boro coming back twice from being behind, we have, I think, now lost 12 points from winning positions so far in the league this season. Those points would put us right up there. Someone posted that the substitutions on Tuesday gained us a point and the ones yesterday helped lose us 2. I wouldn't disagree with that. I think I read last week we have lost more points from winning positions this season so far than anyone else in the championship, which wouldn't surprise me. I'd easily have taken a point before kick off yesterday, but wonder if it's DS not being astute or timely enough with his substitutions which contributes to this, or whether players are mentally not strong (or experienced) enough to prevent mistakes which lead to teams coming from behind. Whatever, it's very frustrating to get ourselves into these positions in a difficult league, but not be able to hold on, particularly when we're not currently scoring lots of goals. Maybe things will even things out and no doubt 'bad luck' will be trotted out as a reason as well. I wonder what other people's opinions are?
