'Biggest rebuild ever needed': What Middlesbrough fans are saying about Cardiff City defeat, Wigan situation and defensive mistakes
Two goals from Josh Murphy and a Sean Morrison opener gave the Bluebirds all three points at the Riverside before Britt Assombalonga grabbed one back for the hosts.
After the game, many fans highlighted Boro’s defensive errors, an area which will need to be addressed next season.
Here’s how some supporters reacted on social media:
@MarkGOswald1: Disastrous defending, slow out of the blocks, yet again and a fragmented display. Dijksteel had another good game, along with Tav, Britt's goal was a cracker but apart from that, not many bright spots. The defence needs to be rebuilt centrally, just not good enough.
@JohnHammett3: Hope Steve Gibson has 20mil saved up for the summer as I think this will be one of the biggest rebuilds ever.
@Smarmalat: This season has to be the wake up call for the club, need a new recruitment team and a massive overhaul of players.
@RobSc0tt: We need three results to go against us, us to lose AND Wigan to successfully appeal their deduction to get relegated. I know it's more interesting to have something on the line, but we aren't going down.
@We_are_Boro: Whatever division we’re in next season, that defence needs a major overhaul. Shocking goals to concede once again. Why do you do this to us Boro?
@TerryBywater07: Jekyll and Hyde = the boro. So frustrating to watch. What is Gibson and Warnock going to do? What can they do? What will they do?
@DimiKonstandro1: Woodgate took a club that finished 7th into a relegation battle, absolutely no way that happens if Warnock was here all season
@DJMattPeverell: Defensively we were an embarrassment today!
@kingboroxi: I don’t want Warnock to build a hoof team full of old players. I’d much prefer Karanka
