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 👀
