  1. Sky Sports treating the Bury and Bolton situation like transfer deadline day with a countdown clock. I hate modern football.
  2. Need to start showing more minerals on that pitch. I would be half inclined to throw Robbie Keane on the pitch last 15 minutes
  3. If Reading win tomorrow we will be bottom of the league in 24th position.
  4. Can see Downing cutting inside with a left curler bottom corner. Refuses to celebrate but upon walking back to halfway line pats his back signifying his name in a subtle message to our club.
  5. Find it hard at this time to get over the feeling that it was absolutely shameful after such endeavor to get into the Premier League Karanka was not backed in that January transfer window, fast forward 6 months and we give Monk close to 50 million. We seem miles away from a team such as De Roon, Traore, Negredo, Ramirez, Valdes, Gibson and Stuani.
  6. A 2014-2015 Rudy Gestede is an asset to any Championship club. Bag a couple tonight and see how things work out.
  7. Bausor and Bevington have never struck me as footballing men.
  8. Friend is a player you would want in your dressing room. His time may have come and gone at the club but he is a model professional
  9. Flint gone. Mikel gone. Besic gone. Braithwaite gone, Hugill gone, Van La Parra gone, Downing gone. We have lost a lot of quality. Transitional season. We will be Mid Table this year and after such personnel changes I think it is to be expected.
  10. After a Martin Cranie first half header and a late goal on the counter attack from Andrew Shinnie, Luton show they have more than enough to survive in The Championship in a match which Boro never really got going despite bringing on Rudy Gestede to chase the game in the 65th minute in front of a sold out Kenilworth Road. Woodgate takes to Instagram after the match : Dijksteel goes to Bristol City for more money. Boye to Reading. Kent to Leeds. Woodgate reiterates that Adrian and Neil are working hard behind the scenes.
  11. We held talks with Gaizka Mendieta last week. Consulting for talent in Spain due knowledge and work in the country. No feedback yet either way. I was told it was not regarding a coaching role but wouldnt that be something.
  12. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8VohNVHbRk Robbie Keane interview.
  13. ? One of the finest defenders to play and read the game in the Premier League era.
  14. Never the sharpest knife in the box, perhaps, he was not bright enough to work out the dangers his social circle might embrace. His own counsel in the aborted first trial for the Sarfraz Najib case described him as 'two short planks, and thick ones at that'. His nicknames among fellow Leeds United players have included 'Village' - shorthand for village idiot At court during the first trial, Woodgate's demeanour revealed how he was coping substantially worse than Lee Bowyer with the pressure of the charges hanging over him. He testified badly, mumbling his responses in a thick Middlesbrough accent to his barrister, who famously described him as "a plank". But by the retrial, his spirits were intact. He changed barristers and appeared in fashionable large-knotted and wide-collared shirts, laughing from the dock at Bowyer's allusions, in evidence, to his "running like a chicken" with his arms flapping, and to his endless mobile telephone calls. At one point during the jury's evidence, Woodgate had physically to pinch himself to stop laughing at a joke he and his friends had just shared out of court. His obsessive use of the mobile phone was manifest outside the courtroom too – punctuated by requests for journalists' help on spelling for his text messages.
  15. FWIW -The Chinese discussions with Gibson were centered more towards Bulkhaul and Rockcliffe. Despite what was said in the media the talks were primary regarding club sponsorship and hotel ownership structures through a broker Alexander Jarvis. -Gibson has a very close relationship with Sir Jim Ratcliffe (INEOS) and the latter sought the former during the process of due diligence and advice on club ownership after deciding to proceed with plans for investment in OGC Nice. Peter Kenyon is linked to Ratcliffe after using him to seek advice and knowledge regarding Chelsea. - I dont know the latest regarding Jokanovic but as has been widely reported he did have discussions with club hierarchy in London. He is not supportive of a DOF model but has a close relationship with a wide network of agents and links with scouts across the world. It does not appear his apparent wage demands are the problem as mentioned by a number of people on here. His reservations are the magnitude of the task ahead transition to a more free flowing attacking philosophy. (This is evident after the WBA transition from Pulis style after Pardew came in). There was set to be another meeting with Jokanovic who was provided after the first meeting with all of our statistical records, data, player database information and coaching infrastructure. - As I mentioned earlier in this thread Phil Neville was on the list, meeting was held in London but he was looking to combine both a role with Englands women team and our club which was not something we were willing to consider. - Moyes, Rowett and Paul Clement were proposed by their respective agencies for an interview but none of these went any further.
  16. Imagine Woodgate's response to the fans after we fall to our 4th straight defeat 0-1 at home to Luton Town.
  17. Guardiola - "We do not pass to move the ball, we pass to move the opposition." Mourinho - " Coaching is taking a player where they cant take themselves" Woodgate - " Isnt it weird how people talk *** about you when the only thing they actually know about you is your name"
  18. Fined two weeks wages for drunkenly mocking American tourists in Heathrow Airport in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Charged with assault and affray after a confrontation with a nightclub bouncer in January 2002, Terry was suspended from England duty and subsequently missed out on the 2002 World Cup. He was later cleared of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, unlawful wounding, possessing a bottle as an offensive weapon and affray. In February 2002 Terry was caught on CCTV urinating into a beer glass and dropping it on the floor of an Essex nightclub. Fined £60 for parking his Bentley in a disabled bay. In 2004, Terry was reported to have gambled up to £40,000 a week on horse and dog racing with Wayne Bridge and Scott Parker. Sent off against Tottenham in November 2006 at White Hart Lane, and accused of racially abusing Ledley King. Questioned the integrity of referee Graham Poll, and was later fined £10,000 for inappropriate conduct. Before marrying Toni Poole in 2007, admitted to cheating on his partner up to eight times. Jenny Barker, 17, claims that Terry cheated on Poole with her in a public car park. Investigated by Chelsea and the FA for reportedly accepting a £10,000 bribe to show a reporter around the London club’s training ground without permission in 2009. In 2009 the centre back’s father Ted Terry was filmed allegedly selling cocaine to an undercover reporter, months after his mother, Sue, and mother-in-law had been cautioned for shoplifting. In January 2010 Terry was alleged to have had a four-month affair with Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel. Bridge was deemed as one of Terry’s best friends, and Perroncel was the mother of the left back’s child. Fabio Capello stripped Terry of the England captaincy due to the scandal, handing it to Rio Ferdinand. Accused of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand in a 1-0 defeat for Chelsea at Loftus Road in October 2011. Investigated by the FA and police, Terry will stand trial in July 2012. Stripped of his country’s captaincy for the second time. Add in his brothers discretion with the Fiancee of Dale Roberts (Ex Boro Youth) it doesnt sit well.
  19. Phil Neville is no longer being considered. He held talks with the club and was on the original shortlist (I am not sure exactly where he was on the list) through Adrian Bevington but wanted to combine duties with Womens National Team. We want full commitment. If we really want to make a statement and give a prospective candidate a blank canvas focused on youth - Xabi Alonso. When you consider the reported Pulis salary and court case settlement to attract him here we certainly have the finances to attract a high calibre coach/manager. Marcelo Bielsa is on a reported 65k a week, transformation at Leeds this season was incredible.
  20. I was told Phil Neville is on the list of potential candidates who Adrian Bevington (Head of Recruitment Operations) has consulted with in his days with the FA. Neville had duties with U21's and pursued his UEFA B license. He appears to have admirers within FA based on his work with Womens team. Personally think a DOF appointment is far more important at this stage for the long term stability and growth of the club.
  21. Woodys nickname at school was The Plank and a former Leeds United goalkeeper mentioned to a friend of mine once that he didnt think he was intelligent enough to tie his own shoe laces at times - Mill Hill/Majestic/Jaw wired shut after repeated warnings, younger days with Kate Lawler.
