Warnock........is he worth it?

Whatever happens, the transition into next season is going to be disjointed. Warnock won’t be here, we’ll have a new manager and a new “philosophy” under the new HOF. Whether that’s in the Championship (more likely) or the Premier League. I’m looking beyond Warnock now.
As a matter of interest, do any other clubs specifically have a “Head of Football” and do we know what their role entails? At the HOF. Can get his feet under the table this season, I just hope he’s not here purely for recruitment alone. That would be a little bit half arsed for me, albeit still a step in the right direction.

CANT WE CALL IT HEAD OF OUR FOOTBALL................HOOF suits us much better

Been told he’s off

Easy enough to write patronising rubbish when you don’t actually support  the club? We are only Middlesbrough after all? Narrative seems to be ‘stop moaning, be grateful for what you have, with a bit

Revisionism and nonsense. 49 goals in a full season under Pulis, 68 and 63 in our seasons under Karanka. We might have been shot shy and moved the ball a bit ponderously under Karanka but we played ha

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the next manager brought in with about 12 games to go if we aren’t in with a good chance of promotion to give the new manager time to assess the squad.

Understand all that but before we sack him in January can we at least see how we are doing first? 😀

I'll take a wild guess and say we'll be muddling along mid table. 😉

Im not necessarily advocating sacking him, i was more going down the line of bringing someone more suitable to work alongside the plans of our recruitment philosophy and sen as very probably Scott will have influenced a few january incomings ,that would seem as good as any time to move onwards with a different manager to suit. the best scenario would see Warnock stepping aside by his own decision. or retiring gracefully from the game.

Seeing what happened at Norwich, I can't see Warnock being overly enamoured with Scott's methods. I would expect (hope) he will step down and make way for a manager who is more open to that approach.

Pretty damning report from the Ref Support Charity aimed at NW in the Sun today.

Calling him an embarresment and clubs like Boro should take a long hard look at themselves for employing a disgraceful Manager!

Well what next I wonder?

We do seem to get our full share of poor refereeing decisions. I'm sure all of us were enraged by the headbutt incident the other night. NW is obviously passionate about football and just cannot help himself having a go at the officials.

Surely it's human nature to give 50/50 decisions against someone that's constantly shouting and screaming at you? I've never really understood what benefit we get from this other than a vent for Warnock's anger.

That's 24 hours after it was reported elsewhere, the Mail ran an article from memory yesterday on it. Considering their Officials made some very poor decisions in that game, Ikpeazu being bundled over in the box, Jones was never a booking and that Headbutt it's not a great example for either party.

My problem with Warnock is that screaming at the Officials when the game is over is pointless. Save it for the next time he is Refereeing a game and then make a comment in the pre match conferences about how we seemed to have been penalised by some poor decisions previously and list them. That way it plays mind games and could give a 50/50 doubt tipped in our favour.

It's like crowds chanting "The referee's a ***" yeah like he's going to be awarding any 50/50 decisions your clubs way when you've been chanting abuse at him all game!

    • Realistically how many new signings do we expect this week. I’m saying just the 1, being Hoppe. Really hope I’m wrong, cause Sheffield united be really tough with the current squad.
    • And when we actually make use of him, too. The thing I noticed after we made the Smith for Forss change is we rarely actually found the lad. From people who were there it didn't sound like he was tightly marked at all times and really, the last big chances we had were from crosses from his side. The Crooks and Akpom strike partnership was surely there for the sake of getting crosses into the box and for some reason we just stopped utilising our biggest threat on that front.
    • There are murmerings that akpom is on 20k plus a week. Maybe wilder was told that he is being let go regardless because that wage is unsustainable but the move hasn't materialised so he's been given the go ahead to use him. 
    • no need to panic after one defeat. it was away at a play off pushing team. we went 3-0 down and still were not out of the game. we are a good side. once the team buck up their ideas and the new lads come in i expect lots of W's. 
    • The biggest thing from the Akpom side of things is that Wilder is obviously concerned about his fitness levels but also didn't want him as part of the group until the week of the Marseille game. Maybe Akpom also didn't want to be part of the group and wanted a move elsewhere and it hasn't materialised but if Akpom has shown enough in 2 games as an unfit player that he has something to offer Wilder then it begs the question why Wilder didn't want him around before that. Did he not properly assess the qualities he had? I mean, it's still early days and 2 games doesn't change what has otherwise been a poor Boro career so far from Chuba but it's a little concerning if Wilder is willing to push on wanting to do deals without fully understanding the depth of the players contracted to the club. What really matters now of course is if he does now see something of value in him that he doesn't double down and he does welcome him into the group. Things change all the time in football and that's okay. But Akpom's lack of match fitness seemingly lands on the manager's door so with the benefit of hindsight, it looks like a poor decision to have kept him out in the cold for so long. Fingers crossed we don't have any more situations like this and that Chuba goes from strength to strength.
