I like rhinos

It would be very ironic if we went behind Warnock's back to sack him and bring in Chris Wilder only for Chris Wilder to go behind our back and leave for Burnley.

Some people might call that "karma"

Gibson's obsession with FFP , holding us back, as Wilder been told he as to sell in the summer, Fry , Jones, McNair ,Tavernier etc, that would be a problem

Seriously though, think we all need to take a collective breath and chill for a moment. It's been a rough day.

The talk of the manager moving is alarming but it makes very little sense. Yes his comments were a bit dumb in the presser but he's apparently got a history of doing at previous clubs so 🤷

Apart from that the only other talk is just from random cranks. Don't give in to the "No smoke without fire" nonsense. Most people don't seem to be able to tell the difference between smoke and hot air! 💨

Heads a bit muddled with all this at the moment but my two cents...

The comments make me think at the very least that he's aware about it and has in some small very part thought about it. I know we want all our managers to be 100% committed and never think about anything but the Boro but lets face it, when a manager does alright, teams will be interested and someone will have a word in his ear. Loyalty doesn't seem to exist in football. Quite the same way we talk about players who get told by their agents somebody is interested in them, it can turn heads. That could put him in a situation where he legitimately thinks about and considers the job. In which case, it would be dishonest of him to turn round and commit to us when asked the question and I've said not long ago how much he seems to value honesty. To a fault, perhaps?

Honestly, if you're taking the comments he made at face value, he looks like a man frustrated by results and performances but someone who has invested himself into those results and performances, he may not have even had chance to see what is being said about him with the Burnley job. Maybe he's not aware of the problems he's causing to our fans right now with his comments. At the very least the comments he's made about the game today tell me he was focused on the game today. Not to mention that the club has actually published those comments themselves, they have edited out stuff from pressers before so I was kind of expecting the same to happen again if they saw this as a big problem.

All this is to say what's happened doesn't necessarily mean that he's leaving, just because he's thinking about it or is going to think about it. But also, that doesn't mean we shouldn't be disappointed in him for being so non-committal to us at the first sign of interest in his services. Especially when you're still in with a chance of promotion, however slim it may be right now, he is not going to get away from this situation with ease and I'm sure the press will keep asking the question until he answers it or Burnley hire somebody else. If Burnley are looking for a manager for this season, Gibson will keep them waiting until they have to make the move, I'm sure of it.

It's a difficult one as I can't really see what Burnley have going for them against us if you accept them as a Championship club as of next season. As has been mentioned elsewhere, they don't invest a lot of money in the squad so if he wants to spend big, he may actually, somehow, get better support here. And if you don't see them as a Championship side yet, you have to think you're going up there to pull off a bit of a miracle. All so you can inherit a job which doesn't receive enough investment for many a manager to keep that team up.

Think the only thing for sure is if he jumps ship right now, I think he could have a worse reputation on Teesside than Warnock and Pulis put together. Potential hero to cretin. Perhaps he doesn't quite realise that yet or perhaps he doesn't really care. I'm sure based on how we've plastered his face all over the SC renewals and all that though that Gibson will make it plain and simple for him.

No way do we sell all 4 of those players. Tav would be the most likely, though

Are you in Dubai as well? FFP isn't optional. Of course Wilder's got to sell in the summer if he wants to improve the squad. However, I listed a dozen players the other day who could be sold without major issue.

If we sold our four best players in one transfer window, that certainly would be a problem. But has any club ever done that, apart from Leeds twenty years ago?

Hes off, the club are looking for someone else.

KS would be absolutely spot on to put his feelers out right now. It doesn't necessarily mean the manager is leaving, just that we want to be prepared in the case that he might. I'd rather not be left in the lurch.

Do we know of an experienced Manager currently not working who knows the squad and the Club who could take emergency charge for the few remaining games (and then ironically get us promoted via the Play Offs)?

🤣🤣🤣

To me it sounds like he's angry after an eye opening performance about a few players and just annoyed people keep asking him about Burnley job, makes no sense to join a relegated team imo

I'm confident he's here next season

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
