I'm just imagining Woody giving the exact same presentation he gave here but because he couldn't work out how to delete the Boro Badge and replace it with a Bournemouth badge it's just this on every p

If Mogga wishes to walk away from management I would be all over him being our chief scout. He can then happily live back home and go spot some talent for us. He has always had a good knack of fi

Cardiff and Barnsley are in great form. I think both Bournemouth and Reading will be in squeaky bum time now.

Amazingly still all to play for.

If we beat the likes of Derby, Sheff Wed, Bristol, Rotherham and Birmingham, 5 of the easiest games we've had on paper this season we'd be above Brentford.

Even winning 3 of those would have had us competing for the top 2 spots. Weakest championship I can remember in years. It should be Norwich, Brentford and Swansea - comfortably been the best 3 teams.

Fair play to Barnsley but hopefully they will run out of steam.  I hope Swansea give us a chance like they handed to Powell, mind 😬

Not play off related but apparently Wing just hit the post for Rotherham.

People talk about Warnock being a miracle worker with all the resources he has here. Barnsley are showing how it's done. I hope they go up if we can't

If anything i think they have progressed more than us in three years. Promoted from league one into the championship then the season after stayed up and pushed on to consolidate with the style of play and finding good managers and now looking likely for a play off spot... That is a project I'd welcome bar being in league one ha .

 

They have two home games which one is a game in hand next Tuesday 

 

Birmingham & Derby.

I just can't see them keeping this run up, but they've been brilliant since he took over.

If the season started when he was appointed, they'd be 3rd, a point behind 2nd with a game in hand.

I'd love them to go up though.

I believe it will be a season of could have been but a great deal better then last. 

I did say bringing in players mid season would take time to settle and adapt and possibly be disruptive. Had SG acted quicker and brought in players at the start they may have settled and produced the results mid to end. I know it’s a lot of could and possibly but I think NW with around 11 players brought in should take most of the blame for a poor return on investment. Loosing so many points to bottom and out of sorts teams is wasted and frankly unacceptable. 
 

Still away to go but I think the playoffs are as likely as a decent lottery win.

From our point of view, they are at least against teams who are still playing for something I suppose.

    • The laws don't say that though. Specifically, the English language version of the IFAB Laws of the Game that the Premier League will be using does not say that. The referee did nothing wrong by not blowing because De Gea was feigning/exaggerating injury.
    • I can't be bothered to sift through an english version of the rulebook, but I saw a link to the Danish version of the international rules and it specifically says, that the keeper at all times must be fully functional ie. not injured and if he is not then the ref must immediatly stop play. It would be odd if the rules aren't the same since they are international rules by IFAB. So yes, the ref should have stopped play, which they usually do whenever a keeper drops to the floor and looks injured. Had he blown before Rowe took the shot it wouldn't have stood. As it were the refereeing team looked lost and I imagine the VAR room came to the conclusion that the ref didn't stop play before they ball went in and no one can be blamed. It was just justice that it was a Man U player who injured him - but that was impossible for the ref to see in live. In short, the rules say he needs to stop the game when the keeper is injured. It happens all the time. How often do you see play continue with the keeper injured on the floor? That's a bit of an overinterpretation considering keepers already have special attention when it comes to injuries. So they can already do that and get play stopped. I mean you sometimes get keepers that drop to the floor and the ref stops play. But they don't do that because the ref might not be able to blow the whistle in time. Just like you don't see many players feigning head injuries despite meaning the ref has to stop play immediatly in that instance too.
    • I would imagine he'd cost a bomb? Especially after the couple of seasons he had there.
    • I've been saying for ages we should try to sign Woodman, I'm surprised Swansea didn't try to sign him permanently tbh
    • I love Leo and I hope he has a job at Boro for life, if he chooses.
