Just leaving this here:

I feel like I have to keep pointing this out- karanka got us from relegation to 12th in this first half season loaning only ayala. In his first full season he got us into the play off final spending l

although i agree were terrible, i still dont think were going down, hull are terrible, so are stoke hudds and charlton. luton and barnsley are pretty much down and theres also wigan who might get a 12 point deduction. were terrible, but there are several teams below us who are just as bad if not worse below us. we just have be less *** than the teams below us which we should be able to do. 

I think our problem is the fixture list. A lot of the teams below us play each other which means that plenty of them will pick up points between now and the end of the season. Whereas I can’t see us getting a single point in our remaining games.

Cursed at home.

Not cursed. Just a poor squad with zero confidence and manager with no ambition or tactical nous. Playing to our ability given those factors really

Are our young crop of players good? Or do we overhype with rose tinted specs?

Controversial opinion alert: 

 

I don't think our young players are that good whatsoever. Coulson has a bit of pace but no defensive awareness and gets torn to pieces by any half decent winger. Spence can be ok on his day but seems a bit hit and miss sadly. Fry is a donkey in the back line. Tav is probably the brightest spark. Maybe I'm being overly critical but that's how I simply see it

They could probably become good, with the right coaching. But they have probably been tarnished at least by a few seasons of inept management.

Still time for them to come good...but only with the right staff in place.

Worried again. Sick of feeling we might have found a formation that works, a bit of form and confidence and then another rubbish performance.  Back to square one. 
 

And sick to death of Maddo suggesting players should go down when they’re tackled in the box every week as well. It’s cheating Maddo. And not what we want to see.

    • 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
