    It was up there.

    We’ve now equalised with our own beautiful finish. Not quite on that level, but a lovely 25 yard curler into the corner.

    Nice strike. That was hit from a long way out.

    Ours wasn’t bad either. It has been a game of good goals.

    That trick seems to be coming out of the back end of the pony.

    Sounds like an exciting game. Still hope Bruce is gone though.

    Wasn't expecting a result against Boro. Am expecting to go down now. Weird thinking that in early October but there was more fight (and, more importantly, quality) on Birmingham's bench last weekend than our squad, and we've played the few teams I did rate as weaker than us already this season and haven't had a win, which with a new manager is probably already now psychological.

    Looking at League One is also a bit scary, I think we'd probably get play-offs if things went well but that's by no means a given.

    Not sure what the answer is. Not sure if going down is good, bad or indifferent longer term. We won't swap out coaches and manager quickly as we don't do that (and it isn't probably going to do anything). Watching the Brum game, what was interesting was how a £5m bought player tore us apart. That's half a million more than our record transfer fee, but crucially, we spent that in 2001 and haven't come close to it since. I don't think we're set up to spend big money even if we had it. I think £5m is significantly more than we spent 'rebuilding' the squad this summer in total, and 7 out of the 11 players on Saturday were signed in the summer.

    Death by a thousand cuts isn't great to watch. It's by no means as tough as what happened to Sunderland or (heaven forfend) Blackpool, it's just weird watching your team which punched above their weight for 30 years just slowly drift, unable to compete with the modern game

    Maybe tactics Tim has been doing a training montage for the last couple of years, ready for his triumphant return.

    I am pleased he is gone, I am not sure why the board didn't act sooner as this seemed like an inevitable trajectory. They have been slowly but surely removing the entire backroom staff so there is going to be a lot of hiring in the near future. Something they have hopefully been working on since arriving.

    Villa will get someone Portuguese.
    They've got a relationship with Mendes now.

    Penalty, keeper booked. Because he definitely wasn’t already on the floor when the keeper first touched him.

    They are, and we look off the pace, Ayling has had a shocker. Doesn’t make it easier when it feel like you’re playing against 12 men though.
