I think I read Woodgate said he was ill which was why he wasnt in the team.

Probably nothing in it but I don't believe a word that comes out of Woody's mouth these days. Same for the club.

Time to lighten up a bit folks. We’re not even in league 1 and people are worrying about how we will cope down there. We haven’t gone down and are not in the drop zone. We all knew that there would be a big turnover of players at the end of this season due to the expiry of big contracts and we should be on more stable financial footing for next season. It’s not all doom and gloom (yet).

Who are you...and what have you done with the real Blanco? 😝

 

We're not down yet...and may survive by the skin of our teeth. If thats the case, I really hope whoever said Gibson would be prepared to loosen the purse strings is right. But he needs to get shot of Woodgate, otherwise it'll just be money down the drain.

If we do go down, he could just sack Woody and get someone in who knows how to work with young players and give a bunch of the academy lads a shot at first team football. They can't do any worse than this lot.

Woodgate is not the man for the job IMO but while he is in charge I want him to do well. We are in a good position for a complete reset and the pandemic has possibly helped us more than other teams. I know some vilify him on here but Steve Gibson will see us right financially as soon as FFP (financial unfair play) allows. He won’t destroy us unlike other club owners.

I’m still fuming after Saturdays display of ineptitude.. I can not believe what a cretin we have for a manager.. he’s got to be the worst Incumbent in my life time .. he’s had the same preparation time as all the other managers and he somehow Managed to preside over a complete sh@tshow. 

How is he still in a job he is absolutely clueless?

Yep's I believe this season was a gamble by Gibson on saving money and letting our high earners leave this summer then restart building a team. The issues are can we stay up and do you really trust Woodgate to recruit players that will build a squad fit for promotion in the next 2-3 seasons?

Do you believe Woodgate chooses the players?

That is true he doesn't have a deciding say in the players and that is why he is manager as he is simply a yes man. He doesn't demand stuff in the same way previous managers have.

On that basis, do you think he picks the teams?

Then it was a really poor gamble against the odds. Please don’t fall for the trap of thinking our squad is one of the worst 3 in this division, any manager worth his salt would have this team in 10th-14th with ease.

If we had no money fair enough why not instead ‘gamble’ on Spence being good enough, pass on signing Dijksteel and put that money towards a better manager? Surely it’s better to be scraping around for some old right back on loan in January than deciding wether to change the manager.

Gibson picked the team v Swansea. That's the only explanation for that weird line up ;-)

He defiantly does pick the side however it seems to me he lacks authority and respect from the squad.

Regarding the right back post I have deleted any post with the word, I believe it was a genuine post and no malice meant.

Oh I do believe he chooses the players after all who else would pick line ups we see. We may not yet be in league 1, and, should for some Devine intervention we don’t, I can’t see how anyone could say he has done or will do well.

    • 6 of our first team squad are straight from the academy, given there are only 23 players in it, that's not bad. You could arguably count Spence and Wing too, though I wouldn't.
    • An Oxo cube in hot water plus cayenne pepper fixes anything
    • I guess our academy isn't all that great after all. Maybe I'm just naive but I thought one of the main reasons for having an academy was to produce players that could break into the first team. Now obviously, like any recruitment / training process, not EVERYONE is going to make it, but I'd have thought we'd be seeing a few more making the step up to the senior squad.
    • Excuse me sir, I am not Welsh and I am contacting my lawyers right at this very moment to sue for slander!!
    • Anyone remember that rapid youth group striker who performed at ridiculous levels for england youth groups up to 17s even forcing his way into Karanka's thoughts at one point? Bradley Fewster. He's currently semi pro at Whitby Town 4 years later, I've said over the past 12 months that Walker is at a critical stage where he'll either absolutely shine out on loan or he'll end up following Fewsters footsteps. Reality of his situation is, whether you think Warnock will 'need' him or not, this is probably the most important season of his career it will determine what level he will be playing at in 4 years time because the youth strikers we have coming through look really good and keeping Ste Walker around an extra season taking up a spot in the 23s if he has a poor season is not something I imagine the club will do. It's like Chapman and Mondal they looked absolute livewires in the UEFA youth league in 16/17 fast forward a few years Junior's spent most of his time in non league and Chapman's spent most of his time sitting in stands or on his couch. This isn't talking down our youngsters it's just the harsh realities of the transition from youth football to senior and from evidence available Walker might have enough there or he might not but 5 sub appearances for us this season wont give us the answers we/him need for his career so sending him out made complete sense for all parties.
