Thought that was an entertaining game. Would have been happy with a point before kick off but given how late they equalised and our missed chances it a felt a bit worse than that.

First half Boro attacked well when they could with King and Dwyer looking a constant threat. Unsure what the pen in the 3rd min was for as I was following the ball but I think Dwyer was fouled. For our second, I initially thought that Dwyer had held onto the ball too long before shooting but what do I know, it was a calm finish :).

Alvechurch keep possession and pass it around very very well, but didn't seem to threaten the goal too much first half despite passing around 20 yards out for long periods.

I'm assuming that Gift took a knock which meant that he was subbed at half time. Second half we managed to stop them playing and created quite a few chances of our own. Alvechurch's ill discipline got the better of them with a series of late and/or dangerous challenges and a mouthy manager which ended up with two reds (the said manager and Ash Carter). Boro had two glorious chances to win it and really should have. However it wasn't to be as Diaz's shot was brilliant and fired into the top corner. Lita then had a chance to head in with the final touch of the game.

The improvement over the last few weeks (Banbury onwards I think) is really noticeable but as always still things to work on...

Up the Boro.

We need to be realistic . We have not gone from being the worst team in the division , and we were , to being world beaters overnight , but there has been a noticeable improvement . I'm sure we'd all love to see us storm up the table and make a run on the play offs but for now getting out of and away from the relegation positions is the priority and it's probably going to be a bit of a slog with a few setbacks along the way , but at least it now looks doable and i couldn't have said that a couple of weeks back .

I think (as table backs up) there is not much difference between many teams in this league.

I admit I have missed loads of games this season I would normally go to.

Of those I have seen I would say Boro were only clear winners against Lowestoft; I recall (i may be hyper critical) than evenagainst Leiston there was little between the two.

No question that defeats against Tamworth, Peterborough, Rushall & Hednesford were fair (with the 1st two actually flattering boro). With the. rest (and based on what I have been told) there was little difference between the two teams.

With a bit of "luck" Boro could have had more points.

I suspect the rest of the season will be similar; I still would not rule out of relegation (is the current run "the norm" or the previous run "the norm").

I would say, to get to the play offs is near impossible. Max points is 95 and in last completed season 69 needed (42 games). 58 points from 26 games...... more than the "par" of 2/game.

Very poor second half. We hardly got out our half. Kepted on booting it long from the back. Didn’t put no passes together. Sat deeper and deeper. Even against ten man. No one pressed the ball all half. That was 2 points dropped tonight unfortunately.

I had two mates there, who don't know each other, who weren't together, who both said we had loads of chances (3 clear ones) to kill the game off.

It was in response to the post - first “report” I heard.****

I didn’t go - fed up with it all.


But, as I said one man’s “sitting back” is another man’s “never say die”

Once again we saw a visiting team pumped up to play the Boro at Liberty Way.

Alvechurch were a good, slick passing side, who enjoyed playing on our top quality pitch & the Boro had no choice to defend for long periods in the game & to try to counter-attack, because we couldn't get the ball off them most of the time!

Is the pitch getting narrower by the game?

A lot of the heated incidents late on in the game were a result of Alvechurch's frustrations at their own lack of an end product.

That said, we missed two clear cut chances to have won the game comfortably in the second half.

The Boro played well in the first half & were hit by Alvechurch's first goal just before half-time & once again it took another Goal of the Season contender, from Claudio Dias to snatch a point for the visitors.

The game was a good marker for the Boro's recent progress, against one of the current form teams in the division.

Some other comments from my Boro supporting mates whatsapp:

"Fucked it up. Had loads of chances and missed sitters"

"Really enjoyable game until that point. Boro played some good stuff in first half hour."

"Really enjoyable game and so much improved. That Gloucester lad and our number 9 played really well first half. It must be good as I've just caught myself looking at upcoming fixtures"

It's not a song that gets behind the team or is even about the Boro. After the first line, its just a song of bad language and culminates in the joy of necrophilia. But I don't think their goalkeeper celebrated like he did at the end of the game because of that song, I think it was more the repeated song that claimed he had a particular liking for 4 and 5 year olds.

I'm always behind the Boro, and no prude, but reckon that section of our fans got what they deserved from their keeper at the end.

That being said, would have been nice if Leroy had put the last second header away!
