Boro Fans Take Solace From Leeds Displace, Mikel’s Master Act

Middlesbrough’s 1-1 draw with Leeds at the Riverside provided many talking points on social media. Here’s the best comments from Boro fans on the Leeds game and the impressive display from John Obi Mikel.

Leeds reaction

I enjoyed the game and thought we played well as a team. Mikel for me was a class act and Randolph was unbelievable in goal. Mike Cherrington

We have been in the top six all season and if you look at the stats we’ll definitely finish in top six – hopefully top two! With the emergence of Wing and the signing of Mikel we have a stronger team now than before they were in the team. Chris Morris

There are so many negative people it’s unbelievable, yeah we’ve had a tough few weeks but, look at it this way, we’re in the play-offs and putting pressure on the top two and this is with us not playing our best football. Michael Walls

Just a shame we couldn’t hold on. The centre-half fell asleep and they scored but that’s football. Four great points from last the two against Leeds and West Brom. Bring on Sheff Utd on Wednesday, another massive game. Mark Tose

Thought we played better, Randolph was superb, Wing’s finish was class. Unfortunately we then dropped 10-15m deeper and invited pressure. I think Wing’s injury curtailed our attacking options. Massive improvement though. Andrew Bunn

When you play the top sides it’s decided on the fine margins. Both goals came from a player switching off and we both punished each other. Overall a very good game in my eyes with poor finishing from both. Steven Ross

Former Middlesbrough midfield hardman Mick Kennedy dies, aged 57

Well done lads. Yes, gutted at not finishing with all three points but well pleased. Craig Dearden

The last home performance of that calibre that we put in was against West Brom. Brian Smoggy Hovington

Top two contenders? No way. Can’t kill teams off and home form not good enough. Play-offs for us. Ian Wanless

Comments on Mikel

Every time he gets the ball his first touch is so good he creates an extra yard or two of space for himself. His forward passing is very good too. Geoff Grayson

Rapidly turning into a very classy signing. Keep it going Mikel. Alan Allison

Top quality Boro midfielder John Obi Mikel sprays a delightful ball forward

He was already a classy signing, you don’t play for Chelsea for 10 years winning everything and then suddenly lose it in your thirties. Gavin Campbell

I remember some of the negative comments when he signed, well this fella is a class apart. Pete Urwin

Tony Pulis: Big games keep coming for Middlesbrough against ‘flying’ Sheffield United

Was a signing out of the blue but looks to be turning into a very shrewd signing by the manager. Neil Squibs Younger

I knew he would smash the league, he’s a class act. Jaymez Stuueey
