As I always say to my mates back home Boro only ever conceed wonder goals. On the weekend, we got beat to the win by a wonder goal. I had quite a few mates at the game who said we got out played in the second half. I just think we took the foot off the gas which is something we can't afford to do which allowed a hughly pumped up city back in.
Take your money? Had you asked for a bet on the first leg I'd have given you better odds than the bookies. At home, I wouldn't take a bet, its too unfair on you!
By the way this central defender Gooch aint up to much that you've been linked with (even though you got Bramble to compare him to)
we looked at him pre World Cup and I watched the USA games to see what he was like. Came with a massive build up but looked well out of sorts against top players and our interest fade cos he was so poor. All the write ups are saying how impressive he was at the WC. Not sure what games they watched or with rose tinted glasses time may have been kinder to him. But I don't think you'll be happy with him.
Its making me smile anyway!
I totally agree, The second half was not a good show. Foot off the gas indeed. I thought that Christie was my man of the match, he was everywhere. I hope that we keep him for the rest of the season and beyond. Xavier & Woodgate were solid, but the rest of the team, for the best part, lacked the cutting edge. It was ever so hard to keep my mouth shut when we went 1, and then 2 nil up. My daughter and I were in the 'Eastend' right behind the Boro goal. I was pleased that for the most of the first half, the Boro fan were out singing City.
At least I am Mr consistant - Bristol City have never lost a game when I have seen them live, and I have never seen Boro beat city either. Will I be at the replay - No , I have a Job interview that afternoon.
