I’m happy that we’ve got Woodgate out. Keep us up and re assess in the summer. I must question why we didn’t do this earlier on pre COVID though.

It does feel like it's a bit late bit the Swansea game showed we were down without change.

 

At least there is now hope

Interesting that the club have not specified how long Warnock is here for. I sincerely hope it is not longer than is needed to be.

I wonder what the ramifications are from letting him go, too. How will Robbie Keane respond? Does that mean he's gonna go too? I would guess Leo is Boro through and through right now and Coyne is probably just happy to be in a job in a club that's currently this high up the league system.

The idea of keeping him around feels weird too. Anywhere but the first team and it's a massive demotion. Anywhere in the first team and he's gonna look incredibly undermined. I'm guessing he's currently in the same situation as Steve Agnew was before he got to join Bruce at Wednesday again.

Right decision, but maybe too late.... Woody was clearly on the brink and the Charlton game saved his hide.

Would be much happier if Warnock had lockdown to drill the defence.

I'm surprised. But glad to see the back of Woodgate. His supposed attacking philosophy went out the window after the first game (which was quite a high intensity exciting performance against luton)  and we went from having a solid defence under Karanka and pulis with a blunt attack. To having neither...

Hopefully warnock will keep us up and we can get a decent manager in in the summer (or autumn?) to take us forward.

I will always have respect for Woody as a player but he's no good as a manager and he had to go. I'm happy with Warnock's appointment, he's a decent manager with plenty of experience. I just hope it's not too late for us to be saved.

Well, Warnock has always wanted to manage us... If he keeps us up, I'll give him a fondle.

Maybe too late but it is still the first bit of good news in a very long time.

Glad someone grew a spine, there's no way Warnock relegates us that's all I care about letting him rebuild the squad in the summer will probably mean some older signings but listen he's an improvement on the pub team manager we had so for that I am happy.

Woodgate will go down in the annals of Boro history as one of if not the worst manager we've ever had in the leagues of Bobby Murdoch I wish he was sacked in February but hopefully Warnock keeps us up I'm right behind him I don't want to see us slip into League 1 because we let Jonny Woodgate play make a wish with our football club.

Interestiing that Pulis's sole claim to fame was never having been relegated.

Just hope Woodgate's Leeds United persona doesn't come to the fore. That is, 'It's not my fault'. Don't try to blame A and E (anybody and everybody) mate, even if it means admitting you just weren't rrady yet.

    • Which is why I dont get the clamour for 2 up top. Whether we play one or 2 up front we rarely score. We might as well keep it tight, frustrate and see what happens. If we had an Ian Baird type forward then it might suit us but with the limited soft forwards we have its a waste of a position.
    • Lambs are nastier than that......more like being savaged by a dead sheep
    • Yeh  the goals scored column doesn't lie, but I can honestly say that at the end of the QPR game I wasn't saying our players couldn't have given anymore. Warnock has spoken about defending from the front I watched  QPR defenders when they had the ball  with plenty of time to pass not  getting closed down or hurried. A QPR team with very little to play for should have come off that pitch bruised and battered known they'd been in a game rather than feeling they'd being mauled by a lamb.
    • not sure marcus browne is going to do a job at left back..
    • That's Marcus Browne off to Wembley.
