woody must see friend is shot, shotton is terrible and howson is a midfielder playing at right back. these combined= an awful backline full of holes and errors. 

You're assuming he actually knows something about football.

 

Honestly I'm just an armchair fan these days, but I'd fancy myself to do a better job than Woodgate.

 

Then again a deaf-blind Eskimo who's never even heard of football could do better than Woody...

This is so shockingly bad.  Really don’t know what to say. They look utterly clueless and the team selection is completely baffling. Playing most of the out of contract players. I just don’t get it

Who’d have thought that the lineup would be devoid of any technical ability. We have Morrison and Roberts on the bench who are our most creative players and we’re just hitting it long to Gestede and Nmecha. 
 

We have no pace going forward and are too static. Baffling how he has decided to line up. Just what was he hoping to achieve?

There's very few other defensive options, which makes this all the more worrying

We have Spence and Coulson who should be right and Left back. Then Swansea would be unable to sprint down the wings with ease

At least I can see us play in Plymouth next season.

I don't understand why 5 of our soon to be out of contract players on in the starting lineup. That's nearly half the team.. If they are not good enough for a new contract they should only be here as back up really.

We’re an absolute shambles. Firstly, Woodgate should never have been appointed. Secondly, he should not have been kept in the job once he shown himself as being useless. He simply isn’t doing his job. Swansea are playing a similar shape; it’s just Swansea are well coached and we’re a bunch of headless chickens. I’m terrified about the direction the club is heading in.

At least the fans sound like they're in good spirits still!

Hmm. They must be using the sound recordings from our 8-1 win over Man City or something. 😉

I have never seen Boro destoryed so easily at home 

Sheffield Wednesday earlier this season still holds that honor to me although Swansea and George Friend are moving along to matching it by the end of the afternoon so we'll see.

I dont think weve been terrible going forward. Actually weve looked dangerous at times.

Swansea just took advantage of our absolutely inept back 5. Unfortunately we are not blessed with options in that area of the pitch

Also this excuse of being out of football for so long is annoying me. So has every other team ffs.

    • Bola does the same thing.  They even highlighted it during the game that we go man for man.  You think these players just suddenly decide to run across the pitch on a whim?
    • We haven't been playing wingbacks have we so why would he be playing?  You've been making those comments since last season to be fair, it's not like you suddenly said it a couple of months ago. I couldn't give a crap what Warnock says or thinks about anything.  Just another manager, like Pulis and Karanka before him, who find it easier to criticise the younger players because they don't have the same level of influence in the dressing room, and frankly, they aren't getting paid as much.  With Pulis it was Tav wasn't it and Wing?  Karanka had Traore in that final season.  Younger players get it all the time from managers for the same reason that they get it a lot from fans, it's all about perception.  If a younger player makes a mistake it's because of their inexperience, if an older player does then it's just one of those things and it often gets passed over like it doesn't matter.  That's something I don't like to see.
    • Anyone know if Warnock said anything re: transfers?
    • I totally agree with this it is not that Spence makes mistakes, but the fact that he keeps on making the same ones. Was he given the freedom to roam from side to side by the coaching staff or did he just decide that himself. If it was a tactical plan then other players were at fault because nobody coveted his position and a goal like the one Blackburn scored became inevitable 
    • Lol, I'm making an assumption about what?  Armstrong isn't Howson's man, he just picks him up as he's running across and then he leaves him anyway.  Howson then was marking Rothwell but for some reason you are choosing to ignore the bit where Howson starts to pick him up as if it's meaningless.  Howson is closer to Rothwell at almost every part of that attack right until the end but it has nothing to do with him and despite him being in position to just clear the ball, him standing completely still is also unimportant? 🙂
