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.

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

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?

Can’t argue with that DR

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.

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.

    • West Brom are about to appoint Valerian Ismael from Barnsley as their manager. I'd say that could potentially be a good appointment.
    • Kind of ironic that Boro then ended up in a similar situation with Karanka...though I'm guessing he was nowhere near as bad as Magath.  
    • Be proud and be strong. It does hurt but never forget that he's a dad and you're a grandad. Always say her name and never ever forget her. You never will. I am a proud dad of 4 beautiful children even if one is an angel. Be strong and remember that people around will always care. Much love and support.  Trekkers xxxxxxx
    • Really poignant for me this.  My eldest son's partner had to give birth to their first child yesterday even though she had passed away in the womb on friday.   Tragic and devastating for us all but the way in which he has handled himself in the last few days is incredible.   So whilst it hurts like hell, a very proud father.  
    • I'm surprised that Gestede has actually managed 178 games in his career so I just checked and according to Wiki he has managed 284 games over his entire career which for a 32 year old isn't many. Smith at three years younger has played 410 games so at least he may be available for selection instead of sending in a sick note. They both seem to have a 1:4 ratio which isn't great but much more useful if fit and available and that's before we consider the respective costs involved for fees and wages.
