It seems foggy has exceedingly low expectations.

A decent season, without a doubt. After what happened last season we've made a good step forward.

We finished 5th. Why were we so inept against the 4th team.

So inept = lost 1-0 on aggregate?

Yeah. We've played at Villa Park three times this season.

We haven't lost there though.

So did Chelsea , All be it in a different league .
Rather win most weeks than lose most weeks , not too upset by playing Blackburn or Huddersfield .
It's a game , we should enjoy the experience.

Barnsy: that expectation was based entirely on Garry Monk being our manager at the time.

“We lost 1-0 on aggregate without laying a glove on them.”

Inconveniently for your argument that isn’t true. We had three guilt edge chances in the first game. Adamas shot was going in until the keeper handled outside the box and Downings shot couldn’t have been closer to going in without actually going in. We obviously could have been more courageous going forward but I don’t buy this argument that we went out with a whimper.

***guilt edge chances***

So whoever it was didn't score because they felt sorry for Villa?

The word is gilt and the phrase is gilt edged.

Randolph pulled of some superb saves in both games. Their keeper could have stayed in bed.
Had Randolph not been on top of his game (the only Boro player who was) that could easily have been a 5 goal aggregate defeat.

They scored early on in the tie and predominantly sat back for the rest. Even so they could not even make us look like an attacking force. Crowding out Adomah, inviting inept George and waiting for our long balls which they picked off with ease. They coasted to victory and we barely let out a fart in both legs of the tie.
Pulis tactics were poor and players were in the main poor. Fulham would have torn us a second one anyway. Consolation is the money that folk have saved not following this lot to another Wembley no-show.

Fulham looked very average in the two league games against us. Not as good a defence as Villa either.

"We lost 1-0 on aggregate without laying a glove on them."

Well to be fair we hit the cross bar in injury time. Hardly like Villa were ever out of sight.

'We could beat anyone on our day' isn't a phrase you'd use about us this season. You know what you get with us - a solid enough team that the league table reflects, but I wasn't expecting surprises going into the playoff games.

In the first leg, it soon became clear that Villa were the stronger team. It felt like game over on Saturday, and I didn't really hold much hope in us turning it around. The stronger team would win, as simple as that.

The next step is the transfer window. We'll still not be a team of surprises, but will hopefully bring in the players to suit the system. So Pulis can name the team days ahead of every game, like he did last week.
