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 think the case is, that SG want's the club to be self sustained .. He doesn't want to feed the club a load of money each season ..  wether it being in the Championship or League One - 

So there are two scenarios .. 

We stay up (by a miracle) and the club has lowered the expences and we might remain a Championship side ... 

Or...

We go down to League 1 and find our level 

It's all about bussiness .. The club must be self sustained .. The league we play in is irrelevant for this matter .. 

The trouble is if we do go down and Covid is still affecting things, it could be a real struggle for division 1 to start up again next season, many clubs just can’t afford to play to empty stadiums, so without tv rights, a lot could go to the wall.

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? 

Quite frankly I wouldn't trust Woody to manage a Subbuteo team. 😕

The club will never be able to sustain itself. No chance

Not unless we drop down to non-league and ground share with Billingham Synthonia or something.

Yeah I thought the same. It was the equivalent of picking a player for the first game of the season because he played ok in the last game of the previous season because the gap was so long. 

Woodgate doesn't really need  to explain anything because it was so clear that he got things wrong. 

Let's see if I end up being right!

Hey, my brothers-in-law are champion Subbuteo players, it takes a lot of skill and hard work to become good at it. Don't compare Woodgate to them! 😄

    • It wasn't just a few minutes. I'm pretty sure he got more time than Bahamboula did on the pitch for us didn't he? That was someone who seemed to have the consensus of the fans that he was worth a go for the small fee we had to pay. Paterson didn't look influential, he didn't look fit, he was bang average. 
    • Given Warnock's apparent opinions on fitness and his performances in those friendlies, I'm not at all shocked that we didn't sign him and I'm still relatively glad we didn't. He's not setting the league alight every week just as his team isn't and really, whose place does he take in the team? Watmore? Tav? Hernandez? Jones? I'm not sure I'd swap any of those players with Paterson.  Sounds like he was influential today and scored a cracking goal? Good for him. But he's done that before we had the chance to sign him too, not sure why it would change many opinions on whether we should have brought him in. 
    • So any of those players could have been sat on our bench yesterday but instead we only named six subs, including the non-league player who hasn't looked ready for this level, who gets in for no other reason than Warnock signed him.  No wonder they called themselves Warnock's rejects.   It must be utterly deflating to play for this club unless you're one of the favoured ones.  One of the least professionally run football clubs in the country.
