A bit dumb on Tony Mowbray's part leaving Dack on having been booked so early in the game. Now we are minus our best player for a game. Sould have brought on Holtby for Dack at half time.

It was never a second yellow, to be fair

It was a soft yellow the issue was the ref has been so bad for both sides anything Dack did after Carroll was sent off was going to be a second yellow.

No Dack or DG, no more goals, no surprise. But I am content with one point today.

Full time, draw is about the best we could have asked for with that performance. Ref had a really bad game.
Will be interesting to see how we get on at the weekend against Bristol City without Dack.

Tony will have to get creative. How about Gallagher & Armstrong?

Awful game and a pretty poor performance. But we have a terrible record at Swansea and a point was always going to be a good result.

The commentator said that Travis was 'dead on his feet. This has happened before - I wonder if he has stamina issues? Bennet for Dack is likely to be the only change on Saturday.

Right that's it, winning streak over... back to shouting "Mowbray out!"

They basically are on the other forum.

Saw something about settling for a point away at Swansea demonstrates how mediocre we've become under Mowbray... :shrug:

They basically haven't stopped since he was given the job. They're not a measure that anything football-related should be judged on... :D
