They have progressive manager playing progressive football.   The complete opposite to us. 

While we have a regressive Manager playing regressive football which as you say is the complete opposite to us except that when I actually type it it looks real scary.

A regressive Manager playing regressive football. How bad can it get and where is it going to take us?

Teams: Boro v Reading (which, coincidentally is also the name of Middlesbrough Council’s new anti-literacy campaign.... Burning books near you soon!) Location: Madejski Stadium Competition: 

Imagine talking about one of your clubs greatest ever hero's in this way whether you want him back as manager or not. Give your head a shake.

In the west of Ireland with no broadband so travelled 45 minutes to watch the match in my friends pub only to find I had missed it due to an early kickoff. I feel blessed

The dust has settled after yesterday and I've calmed down, but my opinion hasn't changed.

Warnock needs to go.

I just can't believe how poor we were against a ramshackle Reading side.

It says a lot when our biggest chance was Joe Lumley almost heading the ball in the 100th minute.

Heard something pretty interesting yesterday regarding our managers job yesterday. I can't really say I'll probably get somebody in trouble.

Errr, sorry why even mention this, you can always hazard a guess as we all can, no-one gets into trouble.

I think the next manager will get a lot of time and patience with the fans if he tries to get the ball on the ground and play football. So long as we're not in a relegation fight like woodgate, most fans will just be so glad not to be suffering through pulis and Warnock type football I think most of us will be happy. 

As the title of Monty Python stated "Its now time for something completely different"

Now would be a good place to insert a mock-up of a large foot crushing NW..  but I still think that if anything happens, it will be during the break.   Wonder how our nearest Premier League managers are feeling knowing that their combined points total is less than ours? for what it is worth, I think we have enough about us to at least survive, whether it is with Neil or A. N. Other. In Dad's Army terms, we are at the "Don't Panic" stage and hopefully won't reach "We're doomed", but to mix metaphors, we need a cunning plan that doesn't end up with us leaving the trenches to get annihilated. Success means different things to different people, but if Neil hasn't got the team behind him, then he is on borrowed time and I think the phrase "by mutual consent" may well appear soon. All this might be meaningless if we suddenly turn things round a la McLaren, but at the moment we are looking like a bunch of individuals rather than a team and that is the one thing that Warnock is known for. Bit of a rambling post but mainly trying to say that we seem to have reached that stage where something needs to be done and I would rather it wasn't a temporary fix. Stevie G needs to either say he has every confidence in present boss or take action, the rising speculation is beginning to reach the stage that it must be unsettling for players as well, so the next seven days might be very significant

Anybody else find it odd that the Gazette are leading today with a Leadbitter fluff piece rather than the usual morning after review and other pieces coming from the game. Awesome player for us but more important things need discussing. Can only hope it’s a sign of other news coming later today 🤞

It’s because he actually knows nothing but wants people to give him attention 😮💨

I’m getting a little jaundiced with the footie

We appear to have the oddest squad on the planet – about half of them are Warnockers and the other half are footballers.  They do not understand each other nor play as though they could anytime soon.

The crowd want football and Warnock wants Warnock ball up in the air and run like hell after it.  I fear it may not end well.

We do however need points.  preferably sooner rather than later

The manner of that defeat, given the state Reading are currently in, is most alarming. The stats as posted above re them being bottom of every defensive stat table and we barely laid a glove on them. And at the other end opened up so easily and so often. It really just looks a complete hotch potch tactically with a manager wanting to play one way and a recruiting policy that largely suits another. It’s pretty obvious that promotion under Warnock is already a pipe dream and so there seems little point, for anybody concerned, to continue this way. Shake hands, thank them for their efforts in keeping us up (for which we are grateful as we were going down under Woodgate without doubt) and let’s look to the future.

I really do think momentum is gaining. On Fly Me there’s a selection of Boro fans comments after yesterday’s defeat.

Warnock isn’t stupid. He will be well aware the tide is turning. And, if he is completely honest, he will admit he is failing badly.

The gazette should be running its time for Warnock to go articles why don't they write what the fans feel? 

Because they're essentially a blog now that has to completely tow the club's line to get access to press conferences.

Ever since that nasty business where they had the journos banned, they've had almost no exclusive information or anything of consequence to say. Unfortunately, it seems like they had to adapt in order to survive.

If they hadn't sacked me I'd have been giving Warnock what for today 👊

For what it's worth he has said something to me via PM yesterday evening.  I suppose he could be making it up but there's no reason to automatically just think that.  It's not my place to post it but let's just say that this was me after reading it 🙂

Neil's time is up. He will be here until a head coach is found and then he will resign from his post. The search for the new head coach started last week. The talk of reading being his last game to prove himself is nonsense. 

 

 

Supposedly 👀

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
