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

Bournemouth 2-0 now

The sack beckons for Tony Mowbray.

Hard to believe they looked like being in contention for the play-offs at one point. Something has gone drastically wrong there.

Maybe its time Mogga called it a day and went into punditry. Seems anyone who used to be a player or manager at any level can do that these days.

 

While we're at it, maybe this thread should be re-named, since we're obviously no longer in that race.

Cardiff been stuttering of late. Albeit they got Mick McCarthy for 2yrs yet as they fave him a new deal after that very strong start he made. 

And we got Warnock for 1yr.

Big Nige not doing anything grear at Bristol it seems.

Forest look good for promotion push for next season as seems Houghton work there is now starting to bear fruit.

Sheffield Wednesday 5-0, wtf, Reach on the double.

They're still 6 points from safety but that's a massive result and a big boost to their goal difference.

Hoping they go down still.

Whey, Reading 1-0 at the very verge of half time.

Obviously I'd sooner every single side above us lost today, but I've made my feelings clear on the play-off contenders.

I kow what you mean, but regarding finances it would probably be better if all three relegated sides went up, as that would reduce the number of teams with parachute money.

Bournemouth are in a lot of debt as is, that gets even worse if they stay down, I don't think they'll blow anyone out of the water with transfers.

They'll lose a lot of their better players too.

I also don't think lightning will strike twice for Barnsley, it's now or never.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but financially speaking, if we don't get promoted, then the best outcome for us is that the 3 relegated teams from last season are promoted back to the EPL. 

 

IIRC, the outstanding parachute payments from clubs promoted back to the EPL are distributed to the championship teams. Which could be as much as 100m if all 3 go up.

I didn't know that, is it definitely just the championship and not the whole EFL? 

Norwich and Watford are almost certs. Hard to route for Bournemouth though.

Wow. If that's the case then I'm all for Bournemouth following Norwich and Watford up. That'll be almost 5 million to each of the 21 other clubs in the championship which will go a very long way for a lot of clubs after this year.

It's not the case, as far as I can see.

If a club gets promoted, they just stop getting the parachute payments, they don't get redistributed.

But clubs that aren't eligible for parachute payments do consistently get Solidarity Payments every season to the amount of nearly £5m, but that's unrelated to whether relegated clubs get repromoted.

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong, but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look stifled and devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward, the striker  with the best heading ability is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.  
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch, I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term and long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person. People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him “unprofessionally” upon leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
