  1. Thought that was better today. Looked like we actually wanted to play football, and great to see Britt bang a couple in too. Loved his cup to the ear to the fans too, shows he’s arsed. I think we’ll end up fine this season. Obviously after the start we’ve had it will be no higher than mid table, but think the goals will come and we’ll get enough wins to get out of trouble. That being said, not convinced at all by Woodgate. He deserves the full season so I’m not calling for his head, but I can’t particularly warm to the guy as our manager and his comments after the match today just further show his naivety. I do really hope it comes good for him, but I need a bit of convincing. Ex-gazette writer Jonathon Taylor summed it up nicely the other day on Twitter when he said that yes Woodgate has been dealt a bad hand, but he’s playing it badly too. Like I said though, much better today so I’m hoping him and the lads can push on after the break and get some wins, and he certainly deserves the season.
  2. Awful last night. Unless something drastically changes over the international break, we’ll be bottom by the start of November with our next three games being WBA, Huddersfield, Fulham. If anyone genuinely thinks that Gibson picked Woodgate for any other reason other than that he was the cheapest and would be a yes man then I’d suggest they’re being very naive. So far he’s completely out of his depth. Hasn’t got the players buying into his ‘high press’, and he’s tactically outsmarted most weeks. In the last seven days alone he’s been tactically outsmarted by Garry Monk and Pep Clotet. He won’t get sacked as the mantra has all about being given time to develop his ideas etc, but more importantly Gibson’s seemingly not willing to put any more funds to put this right. Jokanovic, Karanka or anyone similar would inject something into this squad, and I don’t buy the crap that Pulis has brainwashed into a select few about our squad being poor. Its all about the manager. There’s so many clubs that have bang average players and squads, and a good manager has brought them success, over the last couple of years alone; Sheffield United, Cardiff City, Norwich etc. Cant quite believe how negative I’m being, but for the first time I genuinely think we’ll be playing League 1 football next year, and that’s said sincerely with no hyperbole. As for the blaming the fans argument - I’m afraid I can’t get on board with it. These last three years, Gibson hasn’t done anything for the fans. Since Monk’s appointment, everything has been for his own agenda and he’s currently clearly got something massive going on behind the scenes; whether it’s his own financial problems or actively trying to flog the club.
  3. I’d be dropping Wing for Tuesday and putting Howson back in. He’s done nothing so far to suggest he deserves that regular spot in the team and doesn’t look the same player as last year.
  4. Wasn’t really saying people were blaming him. Just interesting how he seems to be getting the most flak, compared to say Clayton who scored an awful own goal and gifted them a second, or Fry who was at fault for two of the goals.
  5. We lost four-one. We conceded four goals at home. As terrible as those misses were, I think this loss probably isn’t on Britt, yet it seems most of what people are talking about post-game ??‍♂️
  6. Haven't posted much this season, as I've been quite busy and the apathy of last season still lingers, but I went to the game today for the first time in a couple of weeks. It's way too early to be calling for anyone's head, but I've got to admit I've been completely underwhelmed by Woodgate's start to the season. It takes time for managers to implement their plans, and for the players to get on board, so I wasn't really expecting to be up challenging for promotion. That being said, I just can't see what Woodgate's plan is. He keeps talking about this high press, high intensity football, but the Luton game aside I haven't really seen any glimpse of it. It just seems to be the same dross football that Pulis had us playing last year, but without the defensive solidity. I'm really hoping it comes good for him and I don't think he'll be sacked, but so far its been worse than Garry Monk's early era in my opinion, and he was getting slated on here. Onto the players; Bola and Dijksteel have looked garbage throughout, especially the former. Hopefully they'll come good and reach at least Championship level, but I've seen nothing so far. Wing and Clayton. Given an easy time because one's from the area and one just seems to have lots of fan boys. Both garbage again today. McNair finally showing his form has been the only good thing really so far this season. Assombalonga - devoid of confidence, and very much a confidence player. Two horrendous misses today. Finally, why are Ayala and Howson not starting? Honest question, as I'd have both in my starting eleven every week. I know it seems convenient to come out with a negative post after a 4-1 loss at home, but the above basically reflects what I've seen this season in general. Happy to give Woodgate the full season regardless to give him a chance at least, but from what I've seen so far it's not looking good. I think his whole 'I'm from Teesside, and we're hard working' mantra will start to wear thin soon.

    Yeah really good! Great atmosphere, and they’re mad for it in Seattle.

    Big Ravens fan for nearly 20 years. Be an interesting season with Lamar Jackson at QB for a full season now (hopefully!). Usually a playoffs team but a little bit of a transition season this season I reckon. Also got a little soft spot for the Seahawks, as I go out to Seattle a couple of times a year with work and usually try and get to a couple of games.
  9. Got a feeling we'll get caned today. Think it'll be similar to the Bristol City away game under Monk.
  10. Haha, I’m only messing. Didn’t think he was any worse than anyone else against Wigan. I think if they do the midfield three that played against Blackburn again I hope they play Howson in Clayton’s role, not McNair.
  11. @Changing Times if you start dissing the Yorkshire Cafu this is what you deserve ? In all seriousness, would be sad to see you not posting anymore. You probably post the more informative and interesting posts out of anyone here in my opinion. So keep at it, because otherwise we’ll be left with just @Brunners talking about Adam Clayton ?
  12. I don’t think anyone really played that great last night, but McNair and Howson probably played the best out of the lot. On last night, I thought it was pretty crap but we got the win. I’m not too worried at this point as I I think IF (and it’s a big IF) Woodgates philosophy is going to work it’s going to take a good couple of months till we get up and running. Im just hoping we can pick up enough results to keep us in the mix whilst finding our feet, and hopefully the performances will improve!
  13. Completely agree. The only nailed on starters at this point for me are Randy, Fry, McNair, and Howson. Anyone else is changeable.
  14. It’s good to see that the Paddy McNair that we were thought we were getting when we bought him last season is now reaching his potential. Has been our most consistently good player this season so far, first name on the team sheet.
