I'm 58 years old and have supported Boro for over 50 years.
During those years there has been some terrible times and some average times but also some amazing times,during those years the passion was always there,looking forward with great anticipation to every single game.
However this season and some of last season the anticipation of the game, the feeling of excitement has completely gone, I live away from the area now but manage some games each season but don't really care about going anymore,it fact I get more enjoyment from Fantasy football, Super 6 and the Predictions League than I do from watching my beloved Boro.
II feel extremely sad to feel like this, I haven't in the past and not for one moment did I ever think I would.
The club is so poorly managed these day's, some of the decisions made and the PR spin are beyond believe, make sure you take a look at Erimus posts they are fantastic and very nostalgic and sum up the real Boro.
Unfortunately Woodgate is a train wreck in the making, he doesn't have the authoriky tactical ability or man management skills to be successful in his current role, it's a shame he's been promoted beyond his capabilities, I hope I'm proved wrong but the way things are going well will be in for a sorRyanair period in the clubs history.
Well I've depressed myself even more writing this and hope that soon I will be able to feel the passion and excitement again because this is rubbish both the way I currently feel towads the Boro and the current state of play the club find themselves in due to the gross mis management over the past few seasons and like it or not that comes down to one person and onew person only.
Apologies for the rant folks,just so utterly disillusioned with the dross we have to watch and the pathetic state the club are in when it could have all been so very different.
