^ If anyone doubts that the players care 

I want Warnock I also want him as manager next season

I’m drunk and I love this. This is the best I’ve felt about boro in ages. And that’s saying something because there’s not a lot of sunshine.

Finished 1-1. I honestly think we're safe now. Can't see any of those in the bottom 3 winning all their games

I can't either... Especially as 2 of them play each other 😂

The Championship table looks far more encouraging now! I can actually look at it without wincing for a change.

For a neutral, this must be an absolutely thrilling conclusion to the Championship season. Two games to go for most teams, and Bristol City (in 11th) could still squeak the play-offs, while we're in 17th and not mathematically safe yet.

Then imagine if Derby had beat Cardiff and Blackburn had Beat Millwall today .. Then it was almost dead even between 7 teams playing for one spot!

Its win win game on Thursday for me, if Barsnley win or draw thats just funny because leeds will start to become shaky and nervous about getting promotion however if Leeds win it confirms Barnsley cant climb above us so all we need is to Luton and Hull to draw then we are safe.

Great evening with our win along with the results for Hull and Luton. I hope Wigan stay up. What they players and management have done on the pitch despite their off field problems has my full admiration.

Want an extra layer of comfort? Let's game out Wigan get deducted to 45 and Charlton beat Birmingham tomorrow well Charlton would need a point from either Wigan or Leeds to reach 50 except if they take any points from Wigan then Wigans hopes of getting to 50 (and us) are gone. If Charlton lose to Birmingham tomorrow or even draw them needing 3 points from Wigan and Leeds to get to 50 is a heavy lift. If Birmingham somehow win tomorrow then our position looks even better with Charlton/Hull//Luton all 4+ points behind us with 2 games left.

We're all assuming worse case on our own end as well, we wont know until how the results shake out on Saturday but I'd say right now we look very comfortable.

If we follow our current trend of results we will lose at home to Cardiff and beat Sheff Wed away.. so all is well with the world! 

Its made it interesting now, Cardiff should be the nervous one not us as they need them 3 points for the playoffs push more than us and we should be relaxed. However the flip side of that is they may want it more, we will have to still work hard to get something.

I get the feeling Warnock is starting to think towards next season. Wanting to take a look at Pears for example.

Itll be a good year next year if the club let Warnock manage without interference.

I thought that too about Pears. I think Johnson has done well for him as well and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him offered a deal. It’ll be interesting to see what Roberts does as well - he seems pretty committed to the team.

    • 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
