I’m just as confused as you are.

It’s moments like these that make me wish that referees would have to come out and explain their decisions, just because it would leave us with a lot less doubt over what happened.

The Blues felt like they had scored a winner late on only for the referee to call play to a halt as the ball was played into the box due to treatment having to be given to a Middlesbrough player as Birmingham were on the attack, something that led to quite the argument on the touchline.

It has since been revealed by Maxime Colin (via Brian Dick) that the whistle was blown as the ball came into the box rather than as the ball went into the net, but it still feels like the referee needed to give out the full details.

It certainly has left these Blues fans fuming over the whole thing, as they feel that they have had two points essentially robbed from them, points which could prove crucial at the end of the season.

Were the Blues robbed on this occasion?

Yes

Yes

No

No

But let’s just hope that it doesn’t come to that.
