  1. I don't think it's all bad. We just need a few players in the January window. Two centre backs. Two fullbacks. Two centre midfielders and two wingers. And two forwards.

  2. This is a rookie manager trying to change the dynamic of a football club. It was never going to be simple or easy to do that. People asking him to resign? I'm just not sure what people are hoping to accomplish by doing that other than it being an emotional response to what we've just watched. It's not a logical decision to make. We seemed to all pretty much accept that Woodgate has the job because the club has messed up financially and where does that leave us regarding our options if Woodgate leaves? I've been saying it for nearly 2 years that people want us to be part of the managerial merry

  6. I'll have a rant because my week has been *** and now this is the icing on the cake. Firstly, I am not surprised we are where. Woodgate never had the experience to do this, and he has also not got the funds. Gibson knows all of this and is treating the fans like mugs. I don't think I blame Woodgate, I'd do the same to jump at the chance to manage us in his position. But, he must share some of the blame for where we currently are. Without Randolph we would be bottom, 100%. We started brightly and since that Luton game, I have no idea how we are trying to play. What is Woodgate's phi

  7. It’s not great, but the team is set up to play attacking football without the attacking players needed to make it work. Following from Pulis sucking the life out of the players/fans, Woodgate was given a poisoned chalice. Gibson didn’t back him properly and is treating the fans with contempt - and letting Woodgate get the blame. The club needs a revamp - and the that won’t happen with Gibson in charge. The game has moved on we have moved backwards.

  8. I feel like because it's October and results are becoming too dire (dire is acceptable apparently this season they said just not this dire) we're due a Gazette annual piece on Boro 'boo boys' that just have such lofty expectations *checks notes* of a 60 million pound squad and a *checks notes* manager appointed after scouting far and wide for a candidate. Whole things a farce everyone's culpable for it Pulis underachieved, Monk underachieved and Woodgate's underachievement is worst of all he premised things on nonsense 'play quick score goals' promised mid August we'd never see a Crewe pe

  12. I'm genuinely amazed that people were hating a season where we finished 7th, but are happy watching a season where there is a very real possibility of us being in league 1 this time next Season.

  13. I do feel a sorry for Woodgate, local guy, fan, hard work and all. I see all that and I feel his pain and I can't really blame him for taking the job or the state Boro are in. It's not his fault the club is in this position but I don't see any real way forward here. If we can avoid relegation Boro will surely face the same issues as before in every transfer window. Who's going to want to come here even if Boro can afford to bid? And, sadly, if the man at the top tries to sell the club I can't see any mega rich investor wanting it. I think we may be facing a good few years of this, sadly.

  14. If Woodgate stays, yes. If he goes, there is still the basis of a team that finished seventh under a manager who got a nosebleed beyond the halfway line. Any manager who can actually manage should be able to get this squad mid-table. Birmingham were out of form and low on confidence before tonight, and we just made them look like Brazil. We did that, not them.

  17. Agree if Woodgate truly loves the club he will resign tonight as he has to admit he has taken the plunge far too soon and is way out of his depth.

  21. This is far far worse than anything Pulis served up, regardless of how anybody feels about him they can't deniy it. We look like relegation fodder, these are bang average and we can't get close to them.

  22. Christ we are so so so bad. I can't remember the last time we looked this bad. At least under Pulis you knew where you stood and what he wanted his team to look like. They're tearing is to shreds ln the flanks. 7 corners as well is a stat that just popped up. Goodness me.

  28. We end every game with 40 something possession whether it's PRESTON at home or CARDIFF away how does that = goals? Empty his promise and talk of 'goals hitting the net' I'm not sure where else there is to go with him it's a fundamentally flawed footballing setup the premise is 'our ball your ball' and 'quicker quicker' the whole thing's aimless and flawed there's no turnaround to be had we give up too much possession and crosses, by design, to keep clean sheets and on the ball we aren't setup at all at times we look like a pub team we stick 4 up front keep 4 back pass it 2 yards a couple

  29. Woodgate has got to go. He's made us look an absolute shell of what we once we're. The entire club has been gutted from top to bottom in 3 years. From premier League highs, to fighting relegation all in 4years. I honestly don't know what to say now. 490 quid I'm paying for a club that is abject, sinking and in trouble. Christ sake Gibbo do the right thing please. Put him out his misery. Stop this pathetic vanity project. A coaching team that hasn't a scooby doo, and a scouting team and chief executive who are abject and hopeless. They lost 3 in a row previous to this. Did tha

  38. I genuinely think we're in a relegation dog fight right now and it's showing no signs of getting better at all. We look worse than last season and it's amazingly getting worse as each game goes by. How much more time do we allow Woodgate to keep learning on the job while we plunge down the table? We look disgraceful right now Birmingham have lost 3 in a row coming in to this, and they genuinely look like they're fighting for promotion. We look like a league 1 side in a cup game. Nothing can dress this up. The start to the season has been a disaster and it's getting wo

  42. How many flops score 14 goals in a Pulis team. Talk about an overstatement, Jesus wept. I don't care ultimately who scores the goals so long as the team is capable of scoring the goals. If he bangs then in against weaker sides and other players score against the big sides, who ultimately gives a cack? Not that we are in any place either last season or this season to be doing that but I firmly ain't placing the blame entirely on him for that. Add to the fact I've seen genuine improvement from him this season in both his decision making and definitely his hold up play, if he can contin

  45. kinda nitpicky, it would be better if you stuck with tradition and had 'Birmingham City vs Boro' in title rather than 'Boro vs Birmingham City (away)' ...no need to reinvent the wheel. Had me thinking it was another home game there for a split second. ?‍♂️??‍♂️??‍♂️

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
