Some credit has to go to Boro for the first half too . Not only were we not at our best , but they also played well first half .
It seems to me there is a bit of a come down from the highs in December / January / February , and some of us are still expecting similar performances . In a way , we are giving a good account of ourselves , especially considering our injuries , and also the fact that we have a cup tied striker .

2 losses in 18 games , or more importantly only 1 loss in 17 games since Villa , and that was against United , and a penalty at that
That's over 3 months of absolute quality , and though we're struggling a little , we're still getting results , and not losing .
I'm surprised the monthly awards only happened once for our team .
Gotta stay positive
Neville might have been overlooked and Fellaini chosen , but it's all opinion .
Setanta gave the motm to Saha , but despite Neville having another good game , I certainly didn't offer my vote to Fellaini because he is my favourite player lol . My favourite player is a toss up between Baines and believe it or not Neville , for 2 very different reasons .
Baines for bringing the squad to life , and Neville for being a great captain .
My motm is still big bird though
Morning Taxi youve had a late night, all those facts and figures look very nice and just shows how easily we should have disposed of Boro, who have had a complete reversal of those figures and only won one of the last 16 games.
They're all very nice stats but they have no relevance to the MOTM voting.
The idea is that you choose the player you think gave the best performance for the 90 minutes against Boro, i know a lot of peeps see games in different ways and i usually respect thier vote, but on this occasion they are so far off the mark i wonder if they have ever seen a football match, and on what basis they judge an individual players performance.
