    It's one of the biggest challenges he's faced, for sure. From the post match interview, I think he was as baffled and p**** off about the total absence of quality as we all were. 

    Totally agree, we simply stopped after the equaliser and somehow the players did not see what we were in that Hull were there for the taking.

    It would be a disaster, there is no guarantee that div 1 will start until crowds are allowed back in the ground, that won’t be until next calendar year at the earliest. With our wage bill and no income, we’ll go bust, it’s that simple. 

    That is a very valid point about crowds and probably overlooked by many of us, I beileve that we simply can not afford to go down plain and simple

    I pick up on the fact your absolutely correct and going down could ultimately be the final nail in the coffin of a club totally mismanaged. I wish it was only a bad spell because that would give hope something could be done to correct a poor period,  but it is not just a bad period but it's become a norm over a very long period. 
    Never mind thriving the club has totally misjudged what it takes to survive in the league and wasted money experimenting and failing to manage the risks. 

    Terrible thing to say I know but you have to wonder how close we are to becoming the next Wigan?

    This, the club we know and love might not survive relegation. It's that serious. 

    I remember the last couple of times we've been relegated and people talking about us bouncing straight back. For every Leicester in the 3rd tier, there's a Sunderland and Sheffield United. 

    The first season in a lower league would be frightening, many will believe we will romp through but reality would be a shock to the system and w many teams would want to cut us down.

    My lad mentioned that we could bypass Wycombe Wanderers (nearest team to where we live) should we go down and they get promotion, horrible thought! 

  5. None whatsoever and we will quickly become "just a team from the lower leagues"

    Crowd sizes would diminish alarmingly (except final quarter of the season if we are in prime position for promotion)

    Our identity will erode in the eyes of the footballing world.

    Nope nothing for me

    Plus we would have a manager in cutting his teeth once again

    Yes, you could be right but it's frightening how Stoke and Hull have tore us apart defensively at times in both games and they are not blessed with quality.

    Those 2 players in particular are quality and pacey and I think we will struggle to contain those 2 players.

    I think people forget against Stoke we were particularly lucky that they were really poor finishing easy chances. 

    To be honest I am just looking for any crumbs of comfort at this time.

    Relegation could impact our club like no other time  and a real concern

    I'd like to think there is still time for Warnock to knock them into some sort of shape, but like you I have often watched our players and wondered how they actually managed to get contracts as professional footballers, when they seem so clueless.


    Then again Gibson hired Woodgate, so I guess anything goes at Boro...

    Can't really argue with that but what has clearly been shown is the total lack of leadership on the pitch, desperately needed.

    I will be honest this defeat, one of many, hurt me more so than any others because I really thought we would make a fist of it but as the game went on less than a handfull of players showed any desire.

    How will this be turned? well Warnock has to find something in the last 6 games which was not shown over the previous 40 games.

    No i really is not looking promosing and we can not rely on others screwing up as badly as we have done.

    Completely agree and understand the Warnock appointment till the end of season, but unfortunately today he got it completely wrong.

    You do not drop a winning side in our position unless you absolutely have no choice (suspension/injuries).

    The decision to drop fletch was absolutely shocking. Play 2 up top against Hull and we would of definately beat them IMO.

    The subs baffled me and someone please tell me how Johnson or Coulson did not get taken off? We were opening them up constantly down the left hand side but every single final ball was abysmal. 

    Fletch for Britt - why? 

    We fully deserved that defeat imo even though we were the better team because of Warnock's tactical decisions and substitutions.

    QPR is going to be a massive game but Eze and Bright-samuel will tear our full backs apart which has happened all season.

    QPR are not tearing anyone apart since the restart in fact they could be in trouble had not having better results earlier on.

    The entire team needs to be put up for sale. There is barely a championship player amongst them. Shocking performance. Time to accept that we are just not any better. Pretty bad from the manager today too. Like having Woodgate back in the dugout. Scared to change things when we couldn’t even get a shot on goal. 

    Spot on was exactly like a Woodgate game
