Boro missed the chance to go level on points with Cardiff at the top of the Championship after twice throwing away a lead and Mowbray could not hide his disappointment.

He said: "We came to win tonight and tried to be positive. We got our noses in front twice and it's tough to take when you're in front feeling reasonably comfortable.

"I think the nature of the goals were obviously disappointing for us. I don't think they had to work too hard for any of their goals and that's the most disappointing thing for us.

"I haven't seen the penalty again but I've told (Andre Bikey) you can't hang a leg out in the box, you have to defend properly, stay on your feet and push people from goal.

"I think the timing of the penalty gave them a little break because we were in the ascendancy and disappointed not to be two goals up coming into half-time, so to come in at 1-1 was a big blow for us."

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.

he worst performance since Wenger took charge. A spineless, gutless cowardly performance. Wenger and the players should hand their weeks wages to the fans. Useless pathetic amateurs.
