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.

    • Exactly, every time we change manager, we throw the baby out with the bathwater, tear up whatever plan was in place and start from scratch. Instead of looking at what worked and what didn't, keeping what was good and building around that. Or at least building around some core philosophy. If Karanka were a decent man manager, he'd have been ideal to rebuild around for another shot at the PL. Instead Boro have pinballed their way through season after season with new managers, short-term fixes and apparently little planning other than to keep the club's head above water financially. I think it is glaringly obvious (except, sadly, to the people that matter) that Boro desperately need someone like Webber, who can think long term and draw up a plan that will allow the club to progress, even if it includes the odd setback. Funny really, you would think someone who's been in the business as long as Gibson has, might have picked some ideas from some of his peers. Or maybe he just hasn't been rubbing shoulders with the right people? Or maybe he really is just stubborn and refuses to relinquish any control?  
    • A bit like half the squad then.

    • I was about to start and point out how lucky and pampered you lot have been for a long long time Most have you won't know what a third division stadium looks like nor what it s like to sit on the steps in the Holgate at half time 'cause there's no one much about and the first half was garbage .........  and we're losing again   Then I thought I can't be bothered
    • Fry absolutely wants to remain at the club. Has no plans to leave. He's a home boy and just moved into a new house in Nunthorpe 👍. I think the 3 previous managers talking about problems with players attitudes just highlights what's been wrong at the club for a long while. Luckily a few of them are moving on this summer.  And they will be in a big shock when they don't get anywhere near the current money they are currently earning.
