But he didn’t make the fans hate football @Brunners they decided that for themselves. They didn’t like him so they didn’t like football 🤷‍♂️

No, the football was draining. It sapped the life out of the fan base, players, everyone associated with the club.

Reading - worst defence in the league, no clean sheets, enter Boro. Hull - longest run without a win in all four divisions, enter Boro. It just isn’t happening- Warnocks promotion teams would have won

In 1801, Middlesbrough was a small farm with a population of just 25. Joseph Pease of Darlington needed a port for his coal ships, so created 'Port Darlington' and brought in Irish labourers to create

If he can’t do anymore with this squad then he needs to go

Warnock says he doesn't think he could be doing much more with this squad. Really? These players are playing at their absolute maximum potential. Utter nonsense.

It wouldn't surprise me if he's realised this, he sounded really low and there was none of the usual bluster and indignation.

Maybe.

But compared to some games I've seen this season, I thought we weren't too bad.

That first 30 minutes was terrible...but we've played like that for a full 90 minutes some games.

At least we tried and created a few good scoring chances, plus a bunch of nearly-chances (just lacking the final ball). We were at least vaguely entertaining at times.

I stand by my comment that Hull got ridiculously lucky and never in a million years deserved the win. A draw would have been a fair result.

 

Sorry this is a code I can’t decipher.

Which is why they're almost as bad as each other. The situations may be different but the end result is the same: apathy.

NW & Pulis are both *** horrible managers who make people stop enjoying following their team. I'm not going to get into any further discussion about it because if you liked Pulis then you're too far gone and there's no saving you.

Brunners. I have seen a lot of your posts on here and mostly I find them well thought out and intelligent. Unfortunately this is in the not so intelligent and I want to win an argument at any cost categories.
I did not say I was a fan of Pulis ball. I have not said I am a fan of NW.
What I am saying is that IF we do not have a DECENT replacement for NW then we have to stick by him. I for one certainly do not want to go through the Woodgate saga again.
And IMO today was not NW's tactics. We showed enough to win that game. Today was all about the players. They were shockingly bad when it came to finishing.

Even if this is true, you can't ignore our form in 2021. It's been shocking for the squad of players we have. No one is calling for Warnock to go on the back of just this result. It's the whole situation. We need to try something different or the season is a waste.

I think the point people are making is that there are several decent options we could go for, or even just give it to a total unknown from abroad who plays good stuff.

What's the point keeping him? We literally cannot get any worse.

If that quote is accurate that he can’t do much more with this squad then sorry but there’s absolutely no coming back from that. 

It’s no mystery that our best chances come when we try to play and get battered out of sight when we hoof the ball long aimlessly

He could make better substitutions earlier #justsaying

More timely subs as well, instead of leaving it 'til the last 5 minutes of games. I'd love to know what he expects players to do in 5 minutes (plus stoppage time).

He only brought Siliki on when he did because Fry was injured.

No, it's true. Warnock can't do any better than lose to the worst team in the league. That's literally the problem.

The players are more than good enough, he just can't coach them.

    • What frustrated me about Jones was that with their LB on a Yellow we should have been getting Jones to push up and run at him but as good as McNair was for the build up to the goal I think Crooks was missed by Jones today. A few more cleverly weighted balls for him to run onto would have likely resulted in either a Red card or a few more opportunities for us and maybe some service for Forss. I can't say that Forss had a bad game because the poor lad needed something to work from and feed off and got zero service. What is becoming clear (like a few of us on here predicted) is that Akpom is very much a Wilder type Striker and a fish out of water under Warnock.  
    • Svend Larson and Akpom as our top two this season will be fine. Akpom doesn't half graft.
    • He's best in and around the box for sure. He's technically gifted & has a great eye for the pass but floats around defensively & goes missing a lot.  If we could play him as an out and out 10 I think he'd be way more successful. Someone else suggested it but Mowatt & Howson sat deeper with McGree as a 10 could be something worth trying
    • Cannot fault Akpom this season, he could have taken his poor treatment to heart and phoned it in, but his attitude has been spot on.
    • Were people happier with McGree moving further up the pitch today? I felt we looked good when he pushes higher up and we don’t have to rely on him to defend.    It’s a strange one with the formation as it has its plus points as seen with our first goal today, but then that’s it in terms of creativity. We rarely threaten in the centre. Hopefully with McGree being a bit more advanced it will help us a bit more in that regard.
