What a bloody mess. This season is everything wrong with this club encapsulated in 9 months.  - Terribly Ran  - Owner that refuses to accept any criticism  - players on ridiculous infla

If we do go down, the club has to be taken to town for it. Absolutely has to be. We were in the Premier League 3 years ago. Now we're looking more and more likely to be in League One. Owner has to own

I love how Boro fans on BBC Tees are saying that we should of stuck with Pulis. Comments like that just sum up our fans atm and how poor the club is getting run.  Blinded fans that probably haven

Thought id pop over to the Qpr forum, just too see if their views on us where any different to our own. Unfortunately nope they said we were dreadful too and no positive comments on us that I could see.

Personally, I think the cunning plan went wrong when Woody put the turnips on the pitch in red shirts ............in my nightmare we actually do appoint a Director of Football and at the press conference they reveal its Agnew......oh well, back to the drawing board (if we haven't lost that as well)

Well.. today was a new kind of bad.. instead of being taken apart we just looked lost and devoid of any confidence... Just going through the players..

Dejan: I thought did alright, must wonder what sort of club he's came into

Howson: Looks less and less a right back every-time he's there. Get him back into DM asap

Fry: That piece of defending early in the first half that they replayed a few times sums him up as a player

Friend: Battles but keeps costing us

Johnson: Out of position. I'd sooner start Coulson left back and use Johnson further up the pitch. Always thought he looked a tidy player as a right sided forward

Moukoudi: Probably the best CB at the club plonked into midfield. I understand the thinking but it didn't work

Saville: Waste of a shirt. Too slow & limited

Ravel: See above + overrated. How is he in the side over Wing (scores goals) and Tav (goals+work rate)?

Roberts: Best performer but still overplays/tries constantly to do too much

Britt: Not playing to his strengths.. whatever they are these days

Fletcher: Probably our best striker which says a lot about our strikers

I've been told that the reason Woodgate is still at the club is that he has only lost the managers job on a temp basis. If we go down there are plans to give him the job again with a complete rebuild and a plan to return to PL as Sheffield did. If we stay up it will be woodgate with an experienced side kick or DOF. Gibson still believes Woodgate has the potential. The person who told me this is friends with a manager at sports management company and deals with someone at the club..non player.

Might be ***....but wouldn't surprise me

Brilliant idea to put the guy back in charge who nobody wanted in the 1st place and was a major reason in taking the club down... no better way to lift morale between the club and its fans lol.... I don't even think Gibson would be stupid enough to do that do you?

Having said that the club is already a laughing stock so I suppose we can't look any worse.

Depends on how long this corona farce will run for and how long the sheeple will continue to believe its a deadly virus! 

If you don't believe it's a deadly virus, then you are a complete and utter moron.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
