Apologies for the bad language in my post earlier. Obviously I was angry but every poster on here will be so it was no excuse. Sorry to anyone for any offence caused.

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

Are we sure that's not an older clip that someone is trying to pass off as being from today?  I thought I'd ask that in the interests of fairness.

I hope you’re right. According to the person who posted the clip, it’s from the official website though.

A long time since I posted, but had a few Covid symptoms, and mixed with my Type 1 Diabetes = a lot of fun but am much much better now! 

Dear me where do we start with today? Absolutely shambolic from start to finish. Was absolutely incredible how leggy we were from the off compared to Swansea who looked so much sharper and fitter than us and sharper than us. It's like we've followed the populations example an sat on our backsides scoffing junk food and drinking scary amounts of booze (not me obvs 👀

 

I was worried that going in to the restart of the season we'd get stuffed, and genuinely didn't expect it to be quite so had as it was. Defense absolutely shambolic, attack was about as sharp as a blunt axe, and a midfield totally devoid of any sort of creativity. 

Worst part is I'd normally call for Woodgate to go and take the rest of his merry band of idiots with him, but who'd come to a club in freefall especially in the middle of a pandemic? 

😔

Glad you're feeling better, BB. Puts football, no matter how dire, into perspective.

I have seen interview and I am quitr sure that was his answer to two separate questions which in that video have been mashed together to sound like one sentence.  I am not a fan of his as a manager but someone edited that video imo.

I don't really get where you're going with all of this?  He has no integrity because he won't play the games he's already been paid to play.  He's an employee of the club, an employee that has already been paid for the work that he now doesn't want to do.  I don't give a crap what's going on at the club in terms of the manager or staff, it's irrelevant to the issue of Ayala refusing to play beyond June after being paid for the past few months.  If the stuff about him asking for a free transfer back in January is correct as well then it says even more about the bloke.  The only thing Ayala is interested in is money and his next contract.  I've got no problem with a professional athlete being interested in making money, that's what professional means, being paid to work.  However, there's nothing at all stopping him from seeing out the season and moving on with his head held high and gratitude from the fan base.  He's making the choice and the choice is a purely financial one.  Why put players on a pedestal?  He's done nothing in the past to be given a free pass on this, he just played football for us for a few years that's all.

Not putting any player on a pedestal at all all footballers are contractors, nothing more, nothing less but there are two sides to a story and I doubt either of them come out of it squeaky clean. Ayala effectively handed his notice in in January, how both sides dealt with that seems to be unclear unless of course you fully buy into the hastily published Gazette version. Money motivates most workers in life in all walks of life, a footballer is no different to the rest of us. Past footballers are exactly that, in the past when they once played for us. You seen today a few examples of players playing with their heads held high, I'm not giving Ayala a free pass but nor am I giving MFC a free pass, to me something currently stinks thats all.

Been locked down in the sahara desert for 6 months. Heard the football had started again so checked in. Saw this result and thought thanks a bloody bunch woody. Just what i need.

Going back to the sand and bury my head as deep as i can. Probably see Gibbo while i am there. 

Any messages to pass on?

I don't think Ayala refused to play, he refused to sign a new contract or extend his current contract.  The club decided they didn't want him around the team if he wasn't going to stay.  I think Woody was being honest about this in the pre-match conference  - unlike the propaganda tirade from the Gazette.

He said he would be available for the games in June but then did one full contact session and said he had a sore ankle, so in reality he wasn't available. Rightly or wrongly this was the final straw that then what caused the breakdown in relationship from the club's point of view

Sounds like we were absolutely shambolic today but then I remember that clip of the training match and think, are we really surprised? 

No one can really be surprised the one thing this squad didn't need was more time on the training pitch with Woody.

 

The  more input he has the less we look like we know what we are doing. The Hull game now looks massive.

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
