None of them would overly excite me bar maybe the latter if i was stoke fan @northern boro

I am not advocating JW should be sacked but I was looking at managers who are available earlier more out of boredom who I feel could do a better job with our current squad/new model/lack of funds.

Chris Hughton jumps out as obvious choice and two maybe less popular choices but ones i think would make us competitive in this league at the right end of the table with even this squad would be Gary Rowett or Nigel Adkins.

Rowett did not do well at Stoke but did well at Derby and Birmingham. Adkins likewise at Hull. Plus both know the lower leagues well which is market we will be targeting under new recruitment model.

Other names out of work are Sam Allardyce, Carlos Carvahal, Claude Puel, Mark Hughes, Alan Pardew, Aitor and Sol Campbell.

Watched Newcastle yesterday... what a sorry state all three of the big northeast clubs are in.

Could next season be the first ever premier league season with none of us in it...?

Could be fun if we survived, Sunderland got promoted and Newcastle got relegated ?

I didn't even think of that - you're right! 

Although I still feel like it's better for all of us for the others to be doing well if you see what I mean.... players will be more attracted to an area where there are 3 PL teams within driving distance.

Pulis will be all over that Stoke vacancy. A club in a *** or bust situation means more allowances for him. Transfer % Revenue bonus, remote base in Bournemouth and a golden up front handshake from Coates family for accepting which was in our case legal fees arising from his time at Palace

Lack of principles from Derby again

I mean they've said from the off that they'd rehabilitate them. They're guilty for what they did, what they did was stupid, irrational and I suppose to some, unforgivable. But they're young lads and as long as they accept what they did was wrong, accept the charges and try to atone for it, by all means, give them the platform to do that. I'm sure they've been punished internally too. They may even be playing under the pretence of none of their regular bonuses and whatnot, we don't know. I'm sure both players don't want to hide away from it given they both clearly wanted to be involved with the squad.

The way McManaman just scored for Luton, should be watched over and over by our attacking outlets .. He was just steering in a good cross.. No blasting to make it look spectacular.. Just a good controlled steering

    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
    • Just another one to add to the ‘unlucky’ list...
