Are we ready for a relegation battle?

Is playing at home still going to be an advantage, in the absence of crowds?

Very good point. In some ways yes, but the biggest advantage of being at home, that's gonna be missing.

So what you are saying is we could stay up or we could go down. 

Well yeah, and when some are saying we are probably or definitely going down, that's an alternate opinion Billy. 😄

The absence of a crowd might even help to take the pressure off in certain games, who knows. Our home crowd can get antsy pretty quick... it doesn't take a huge amount for the moans and groans to start.

True, but you could have saved yourself so much time and effort by  being far more succinct.

I wasn't trying to be succinct. I was trying to give reason for my opinion.

Barnsley, Luton, Charlton, Hull. That's why I think we'll stay up. I'll predict it now.

However, the last time I predicted a positive outcome for boro was sheff wed at home in august 2014. We were 3-0 down after 60 mins...

 Clearly we will find out who the vocal players are.

Not if they've all got masks on 😄

 

Relegation would really be the cherry on top of the cake that is 2020!

I had a glance at the other teams fixtures and they are just as if not more difficult than ours. 

I dont attach much weight anymore.to who plays who as so many freak results but those saying we are doomed due to our remaining fixtures might gain comfort in looking at our rivals fixtures. 

However, for me its simple. We need 9 or 10pts so we simply need to take care of our own business. I am quietly confident we can now we got a full squad. Utb

We've got a global pandemic, a looming recession, a clown as the leader of our country, a racist madman in charge of the most powerful country in the world but still the worst thing for me is having Woodgate in charge of the Boro.

Aye, it does put it all into perspective when you say it like that 😰

My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games

We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down 

Defensively we're fine, IMHO,

Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell.

I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.

    • I’m still dreading Woodgate being reappointed, he seems to have disappeared but is still employed by the club. Does anybody know what his  role now is?
    • Every year it’s another bloody clear out I presume it will be the same this year. Then we’ll change the type of manager we have, he’ll want different players and the whole cycle will start again.  I’m really not fascinated by it, not with out recruitment. We’ll be signing has beens and unproven players. There is no plan in place, we need a proper chairman with a decent methodology in place. 
    • @Dan1234 Spot on mate! Back to square one otherwise. If Warnock keeps us up then that is great, he has done his job. It's harsh, but I'd say thanks very much but we are moving in this direction. If he was open to it, I think he'd be a good addition to the backroom staff (Coach or Assistant) as a  "mentor" if you will, for a more positive thinking manager. Think if we do go down the route of a untested/inexperience manager, building the correct backroom staff is a must. Something we failed to do with Woodgate. 
    • This sounds all too Boro-like. So much that I believe it's how it will pan out. I literally have no idea who we should approach though. Not domestically anyway. Lee Johnson seems like a Gibson signing though, but it's not like he has really made Bristol take huge steps forward despite good investment. Plays nice football but always falters in the second part of the season. Could perhaps lay a decent foundation here for a few years. Hughton is also an obvious choice, but I doubt he'd want to come here. Long story short I don't think we have the senior staff to appoint a decent foreign manager so we will look at who is available domestically.
