Agree with those saying don’t get carried away etc. But when you say “on another day if stoke had scored there chances we’d have lost 3-2”, you also have to factor in that on another day we could/shou

Well we rode our luck at times but well done Mr Warnock for overseeing a vastly improved team performance and great result.

More of the same please.

So obvious today that there was real experience on the touch line and a Manager willing to impose himself

It took Neil Warnock 45 minutes to demonstrate what an appalling appointment Woodgate was. He's already got the team playing more cohesively and positively, with stronger individual performances than his predecessor could manage in 40 games.

Our squad is nowhere near bad enough to be League One standard. We've been almost criminally mismanaged for most of this season. There is simply no substitute for experience when it comes to appointing a manager. I really hope the penny will finally drop with Gibson after this, whether he appoints Warnock, Hughton, Jokanovic or anyone else for next season.

Not sure experience is the thing. Robson and Karanka had no experience of management but had been around great managers. 

Monk had plenty of experience in this league and was crap for us. I think having a clue helps and not switching from the dressing room to the dugout.

Today showed how badly we have been managed this season. The main difference today was that although it wasn't brilliant people looked like they knew what the manager was asking of them. Our shape on and off the ball was better.

Big big game coming up.

Just finished work. Had a look in. Seen the result. Brilliant. Dont care how we played. Really dont care about dissecting the performance. Right now and until the end of the season. All that counts is the result. Well done Warnock. Hats off. Keep it up sir.

Warnock. Retires (for the 473rd time). Signs 8 match contract with Boro. Keeps Boro up with 2 games to spare. Can't resist the allure of one more season in management, for a club and chairman he's always had a soft spot for. The Mrs is just happy to get rid of him for another year. Finishes 2nd in his first full season with Boro, 4 points behind recently relegated Villa. Cannot turn down the temptation of one final shot at PL management. Signs 1 year deal. Keeps Boro up on the final game of the season with a point at The Amex. Standing ovation from the Boro faithful, Warnock in a flood of tears. Forever inscribed in Boro folklore. Retires (for the 474th and final time).

It's written in the stars.

    • True that and, ironically, part of why we won the race to sign Balogun was because we wanted to play him down the middle rather than wide left.  I thought Connolly did ok and showed promise but he seemed to be winding himself up. While Balogun is with us to make a step up from U23s and show what he can do, Connolly has stepped down because he has been failing over the last year.  It's hard to know which way things will go with Connolly; if he gets his head and performances right he will be some player at this level. He could just as easily flame out if he doesn't score in his first few matches. Balogun has all the necessary self-confidence; if his team play and work ethic matches it then he'll be one hell of a player at any level. I was impressed by the way he showed for the ball and retained it when he came on.
    • And terribly fishy if the buyer knows it’s only worth £20m and still pays £84m. Add to this both the buyer and the seller are the same person.
    • Sorry I thought you were talking about the current situation.    I agree that at the time I thought Kevin Maxwell’s appointment at Oxford was very fishy, again though I wouldn’t have wanted Derby to be liquidated over it. What are your thoughts on the Falklands war?
    • I think what Quantuma are doing is quite far removed from normal administrator work. Other clubs which have ended up in administration have sold key assets to release funds to pay debts to the best extent they can. Derby's admins are flatly refusing to sell anyone in an active transfer window, presumably because they think they can dodge a bullet and finish the season with a squad as strong as they started it. I'm not an administration expert, but I think that's against both the letter and the spirit of the law when it comes to their responsibilities. Derby County Football Club is worth far more than the money they owe HMRC, so there is no excuse for HMRC not receiving what they're owed. Personally, I couldn't give a toss whether MFC gets a penny out of them - my sympathies lie with (a) Wycombe Wanderers, (b) all the small businesses who are being shafted out of money DCFC owe them for services provided in good faith, and (c) the taxpayer in general - you and me and anyone else reading this in the UK - for enduring another eight-figure hit to tax takings at a time when this country needs every damn penny of taxpayer revenue it can get its hands on. As for mis-stating true assets, again I'm not an accountant, but isn't selling a stadium worth £20 million to the club's owner for £80 million a pretty definitive case of this?
