Candidates for our next manager...

I not sure Karanka would want to come back. His philosophy is to have two quality players for each position we have about 4 quality players full stop. We simply do not have the funds to let him operate the way he did when he was here last

And we would have to buy him new toys after he threw all the last ones out of the pram 🙃

Thanks for the info @diggerlad07  

If Friend stays on and moves into a coaching role he’ll be our next manager after Warnock! Gibson is so predictable. 
 

What’s the legal case against Ayala? Refusing to play before his contract ended? Seems Boro don’t have make a meal out of players leaving - lots of issues over the years. Even Schwartzer said the other week he was disappointed just to receive a typed letter of goodbye and thanks after 10 years at the club! 

Breach of contract.  It appears that he was trying it on back in January, never mind this summer.  Still, he was willing to play the games before the end of June, if it wasn't for that pesky injury rearing it's head again of course 🙄

I'm not entirely sure how correct this is but I think he tried to leave in January and we wouldn't let him.  Then he was injured for ever.  I believe that there was a suggestion he was trying to leave on a free transfer as well to somewhere abroad but I'm not sure about that one.  Maybe other people know more about it than I do?

We have a legal case in against Daniel Ayala 😂😂 (Over the merry moon, typical Gibson move)

Think his injury is/was genuine if this changing room footage is anything to go by 😉

Warnock deal 100% done and will be announced shortly. (Not the appointment I wanted)

- Friend has been offered extension but on significantly reduced terms with possibility of coaching at the end of it.😂😂 .  ( Hope he's only 3rd/4th choice)

- Funds have been made available now that the big earners have left.  (Happy with that about time)

- Roberts now unlikely to come back on loan as he has offers elsewhere. (Disappointed but too good for us imo)

-  Apparently were anticipating offers for Spence, Fry and McNair. Any player who gets sold then the majority of money will be reinvested. (I'd want enough money so we can replace them with 2/3 decent signings)

Thanks for the information @diggerlad07

When is the Warnock announcement expected? By the end of the month? Is there any update on Johnson?

It's a massive rebuild this summer but one that is quite exciting. It very much feels like the end of an era.

I would be surprised if it wasn't Monday. Companies like to announce good news on a Monday.

Not happy with Warnock for same reasons I've said before. Very excited to see the likes of Gunter and Danny Graham joining the club for one last payday as we grind out next season for a 10th place finish. Happy days. 

Feels like weve just missed a huge chance to rebuild in a more positive manner.

Very much on the fence with Warnock i would probably have preferred somebody else but given what he has done so far I suppose you have to offer him it if he's willing to stay. He has a good record at this level so at least I think he offers a bit of security on that front.

However its a very short term outlook given his age. The question is how much can you back somebody who is likely to only be able to offer up to 2 years. But then again I currently don't have faith in the club making a good long term appointment.

The problem, in my view, is the incredibly short off season this year. We're back playing football on 12th September. That's not a lot of time for a new coach to get to grips with the squad and turn things around. Been cucked a little by the entire pandemic situation I think.

How much time have our most recent managers had? Monk, Pulis and Woodgate 2.5 seasons between them? Strachan and Mowbray 3 seasons in total? Im not that worried if he can only do a couple of seasons. We need to hit the ground running with signings and a clear plan to get the team playing to their strengths. I think Warnock is the best option really.

It's 7 weeks until the season starts probably 3 weeks until pre season begins that's an incredibly tight schedule so it was always going to be the best move to hand it to Warnock he's already rolling on targets/recruitment he said he'd love to have new players in before pre season so he might be off grid for the next week but the timeframe is very tight here and a huge rebuild is in order would be madness to delay this past the next week with all that in mind it had to be Warnock plus he has a 50% win ratio with us you can't ignore that if your Gibson.

Very happy with Warnock. I want results. Couldn’t give a toss how we get them personally. Think he will have us challenging for play offs, if backed in the transfer window.

100% happy with this, money being made available and a tried and trusted manager to spend it. Not too bothered about fry and mcnair, both replaceable, Spence be dissapointed to see go but if he has any sense he'd stay and develop for another year.  Feels good to be interested again as 90% of last season I was just expecting to be turned over every game.

With the most lopsided squad I can remember in a long time and a consistently shot shy team Warnock managed a 50% win record and took 12 points from 8 games.

That's not far off the heralded 2pts a game. 

And If nothing else his press interview will be fun.

    • 1. 1-1 2. Same as the Bournemouth, injury dependant.  3. Yes he'll make his debut, if Fletcher is injured I think he'll start. No hat-tricks in this game. 4. Leo will go full Graeme Souness and plant a Boro flag in the centre circle. 5. Power Rangers surely?
    • When - Saturday 26th September, 2020, KO 15:00 Where - The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium Why - Because it's time for football, duh! So, this bizarre season continues with a trip to QPR, and a ground where we've had very mixed fortunes over the years. Last season we drew 2-2, back when the world was normal. Well as normal as it can be when you have a Wotsit in the White House and Wurzel Gummidge in Number 10, that is. Our Lord and Saviour Neil of Warnock will still be self isolating with Covid-19 for this, so expect to see monseuirs Jepson and Blackwell in the dugout. No idea where Leo is. If anyone has seen him, please return to The Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough, England, TS3 6RS. Talking points: Score Predictions? Lineup? Will Chuba Akpom make his debut, scoring his first of many hat-tricks for the club? Will Leo appear out of nowhere mid-match, storm onto the pitch and headbutt the ref? Who are the better Rangers? Queen's Park? US Army? Hermione (G)Ranger? Oh and just because it will never not be funny:    
    • Regarding Walker - a long long way from making the grade. If he can do it at this level is more than debatable 
    • Exactly and annoyingly it's most likely that the PL clubs will be affected the least.
    • So much of that is due to the PL though. The Championship has to run this high to get into the PL and it trickles down from there.
