What a relief!

Today's results just show how strong the championship league is! 

A nice win and performance to finish of what can only be described as a absolutely shocking seasons for the fans.

If it wasn't for Warnock then I think absolutely we would of been relegated under Woodgate. Warnock, Blackwell and Jepson have done an excellent job given the circumstances like players dropping like flies. 4 away wins was massive for this football club!

We need to improve as a club as a whole and hopefully correct decisions finally get put right in the summer starting by the right appointment as a manager.

Can I just say what a pleasure it has been reading members views on this forum. Yes, there is always disagreements but we all have one thing in common and that's the love of the Boro.

UTB!

I don't understand the problem. Seems incredibly harsh.

It didn't matter what was happening at Birmingham, unless he thought Charlton were going to fight back and put 5 past the champions.  I honestly don't know why he was trying to sensationalize something that wasn't there, its either poor commentary or he can't add up.

I genuinely think we would have been bottom with Woodgate and I'm very glad Gibson finally took his head out of the sand and realised we were heading down.

We now need to stabilise the club and get things sorted out.

If Woodgate kept his win rate over the 8 games he'd have at a push won 2 and we'd be on 47 points I 'm pretty sure he'd have relegated us thank god for Warnock.

After the Swansea game I honestly don't think we would have won  another match under Woodgate..

    • I don't think they do have an embarrassment of riches, which I suppose is another point I'm making.  Bournemouth weren't that good this season, they rarely impressed me when I saw them, and didn't impress me much at all against us. Mitrovic has had a fantastic season at this level, but he still might not be good enough for Newcastle, I'm not really sure what argument you're making there?  He scored 3 goals for Fulham in the Premier League last season.  Either side of that he's scored 26 and 40 in the Championship.  All that proves is that he's more than good enough for this level, which is lower than where Newcastle aimed to be when they sold him. I am realistic about incomings, I'm also realistic about our current players.  Howson was the worst of the three midfielders last season, and needs to be replaced in the side.  It shouldn't cost much at all to bring in a better player than him, he's not even our best midfielder let alone one of the top midfielders in the Championship, so replacing him really shouldn't be difficult.  If the club can't replace a bloke that wasn't that good to begin with when we signed him then what chance have they got of improving the rest of the team adequately enough to win promotion?  A GK, a midfielder, two strikers, left sided player.  Those are our priorities, that's where we need to upgrade in my opinion.
    • Poor article that. 10 mill for Spence? Coulson a Teessider? Come on Craig Johns ffs 
    • https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/middlesbrough-loan-exit-round-up-24049100   This article mentions we are releasing Ste Walker this summer. His release is no surprise but dont think club have confirmed his release. Article again mentions figure of above £10m for Spence. Echo saying £20m. Hopefully somewhere in between.
    • Bournemouth didn't spend much last year, probably about the same as we did I think? For some reason they clearly rated other people ahead of the lad.  Nothing wrong with that of course, and it doesn't need to be a reflection of his ability.  My issue would be if he was our sole midfield signing, then we'd be putting a lot of faith in someone who was taken out of the Bournemouth side for whatever reason.  At some point we need to be bringing in players who will replace those we already have otherwise we're just not improving.
    • Bournemouth have an embarrassment of riches. Just because they deem a player to be not good enough for them, it doesn’t mean that we should turn our noses up at them. Mitrovic was deemed not good enough for Newcastle who were struggling at the bottom of the premier league at the time, he went to Fulham and has set a frankly ridiculous scoring record which could stand for decades. We need to be realistic about incomings. I think we all accept that we need to bring in several players, and given how well Jonny played last season is it worth the amount it would cost to bring in a better player? We can’t afford to upgrade every single player in the squad so we need to prioritise imo.
