Brutal watching that... I see 11 individuals all with no 0 interest today. Robert's second half showed something. As soon as I saw the team I think we all knew what was coming... laboured , lacklustre , lg1 standard. Honestly dont think Swansea got out of 1st gear. Got far too many passengers at our club. We arent fixable over a week month or year in my opinion.

Steve Gibson needs to look himself in the mirror and question whether he’s letting his personal loyalty towards Woodgate cloud his, apparent, objective judgement of an absolutely incompetent manager.

I can see the argument for how they’ve played in training and for Woodgate basing their starting performances based on how they’ve played, but as we’ve seen that constant chopping and changes has yiel

Quick bit of maths  if you put £3 on at 91/1 means .... .... You lose £3

I dunno what we do next game, I mean you potentially you could drop everyone that started baring maybe the goal keeper (not that he had a good game i just dont think of them were his fault) and Howson. 

Spence was rusty but I feel will and did make a difference given time with his pace and drive to get forward. So with that in mind - 

                       Pears/Stojanović (really dont mind either)

Spence........Fry...........Moukoudi..........Coulson

.....................Howson.....Mcnair..........................

Roberts....................Wing..........................Johnson 

.................................Fletcher.................................

Largest margin of defeat today, the lads should be proud 🤡

The worst prepared squad in the Championship, all season long 🤦‍♂️

Indeed but why on earth do we still get so upset about it?

A lot of us seem to live in glass houses and full of faith!

What ever happens now between now and the end of the season, This team has to be dismantled from top to bottom and players brought in from inside or outside the club who want to shed blood for the team,I've been here before, but in the twilight of my life I could do without this...The heady days of may 1992 a distant memory I Know I'll never experience that day at Wolverhampton,but hey-ho

It was the set up. Why are we playing with 4 players left up the pitch, even after we get away with them missing 2 sitters? It should've been changed straight away. Look at the goals and see where Coulson and Nmecha are stood. The set up left the defence completely exposed.

This lockdown re-start is a real test of any manager. It's embarrassing how under prepared and lost we looked. Tells me Woodgate is out of his depth. He was unable to prepare and bring together a team.

Is there any hope Gibson takes action this season?

Nice to see SG was at the match. If we go down I 100% blame him for this *** show he has created. If he comes out in summer when we in league 1 and even attempts the to talk positive bullshit i will hunt the stupid chunt down myself and demand answers.

How can you sit there and watch this utter *** week in week out and still claim you want the best for this club? If you really want us to survive then sack that clueless fool you hired.

The next 2 games are sooo huuuuge and i would not trust Woodgate to tell me the correct time never mind manage two positive results.

Shambles off a club from every angle. Boardroom, in the dugout, on the pitch, in recruitment etc etc. Literally not one positive aspect to our club at this moment in time.

He was a fantastic player for the majority of time he was on the pitch for us during his six and a half years of service. However, I haven’t seen anyone from Liverpool or Norwich questioning his commitment; If they have then that would just be reinforcement of his disloyalty being equally spread between clubs, as opposed to him being just disloyal to us. Him faking injury when playing for us is bad, regardless of whether he has done it before. Whatever job you do, you should be fully committed and don’t fake injury like Ayala. We could quite easily get relegated because of Ayala’s lack of commitment. That’s unforgivable to me.

We’re a mess behind the scenes with Gibson’s decision making, but that gives no mitigation to Ayala’s disloyalty. You might feel different in a few weeks if we slip into the relegation spaces - which is looking very likely.

To me, football is an ultra competitive sport in which you give absolutely everything for the club at all times when fit. That’s what set Leadbitter apart from Ayala. You don’t repeatedly fake an injury when needed like Ayala has made a habit of; Well, unless you’re akin to Donald Trump who avoided the military draft 5 times during the Vietnam War as you’re a sorry excuse of a human being that is all mouth and no action.

We also got promoted with Ayala unless I'm missing something? Grant was a great Captain but there were another 11 players on the pitch with him. Gaston Ramirez was also a major reason for us getting promoted when we did but he hardly covered himself in glory. It's the nature of football. Don't you find it just a little bit strange that someone who was deemed of enough good character to Captain the club suddenly became a monster?  Ayala's injury being "faked" is a matter of opinion, I have no idea if he is faking it or not he certainly won't be the first Boro Player to have had suspicious or convenient injuries nor will he be the first person to be told by Doctor's, Consultant's and Specialists that there was nothing wrong with them only for something to later be proved that they did have an illness all along.  

Unfortunately the Club have a bit of recent history of making a mess of contracts and also spouting manufactured PR nonsense none less so than Woodgate being the "outstanding candidate". When you shout "fire" too many times eventually people stop believing it so excuse me if I don't believe them and now take what PR spin they come out with with a pinch of salt. The article on Ayala was unprofessional, and clearly a petulant and emotive knee jerk childish reaction.  I try and avoid basing opinions on outbursts said in the heat of the moment, they rarely contain much information of value.

Maybe he is guilty of everything currently thrown at him and I get the fans anger but things are rarely black and white and I haven't read or seen anything that convinces me that he has suddenly become a different person to the one I cheered and supported for the best part of seven years. If he could act for almost seven years he is clearly in the wrong profession but in fairness at least he hasn't spent the last six months training at another club. I will reserve judgement until I know both sides of the story. Until then for me he played a fantastic part in the brightest Boro spell of the last ten or twelve years or so.

That we are now in the worst spell of the last thirty years of Boro history its just far too convenient to create a distraction from what is really going on but maybe it is just a coincidence.

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
