I'm kinda surprised Karanka still hasn't been sacked 

Just checked the table and they're in danger of replacing Wednesday in the drop zone. Time must be running very short for him.

Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

Here's an even better question but it's quite a long one.  Why did we sign Bamford and Gestede for a manager that didn't want them at the time, then 6 months later, appoint a different manager wh

Rotherham have now scored as many goals as us. I can't decide if it's good by them or bad by us🤷‍♂️

Goals don't matter,  wins matter!

That's a truth with modifications. You need goals to win. 7 more goals and we could have had 14 points more.

Bit of both I think. Before our recent barren run, we were comfortably top 10 in the league for goals scored. We're joint 11th now, tied with Rotherham and Huddersfield. So I'd actually say based on expectations arising from our last 3 seasons and from the size of club Rotherham is, we're both doing quite well in goals, all things considered.

Surprisingly, Watford are only one goal ahead and 3rd placed Swansea are "doing a Boro". They are tied 6th for goals scored with 33, but have a ridiculous 15 goals conceded, 5 less than the next best defence (Watford with 20). We're 4th with 24 goals conceded, by the way.

Woodgate is actually caretaker manager for Bournemouth 😂

I’d say it would be nice for them to win the next couple of games  and appoint him full time!

 The worst of all worlds though  is for them to win the next couple under him and then appoint someone who is actually capable of keeping them winning, so I’d rather Karanka does himself and us a favor by beating them.

I think they should get Pulis or Monk with Woody as assistant manager

    • DZ has already hinted that Fry may be off, perhaps he’s one of the players that doesn’t want to be at the club. 
    • I feel sorry for Johnson, was playing really well before Christmas, creating and scoring. Loan players come in, he doesn’t get a look in and we are worse for it. Spence and Coulson often get called out, alongside the strikers.   I wouldn’t be surprised if Brit, Johnson, Akpom, Coulson and Fletcher are all pretty peed off and want away.  I’m still supportive of Warnock but he needs to take some responsibility. The loan signings seem to have disrupted the team spirit. Too many all at once? Too many straight into the team? He clearly doesn’t rate any of our strikers and Fletcher annoyed him getting injured again when he said he was fit and not signing a new contract.  Such a disappointing end to the season 
    • Just had a snoop in the Norwich club website to see if there was anything "official". Seems like it is an obligation to buy upon promotion rather than an option.
    • The last 4 years have been genuinely horrendous but I can’t agree that this is worse than it was under Pulis. I mean under Pulis there were times we played a flat back 5 of shotton, ayala, flint, friend, Saville. 4 plodders in midfield and Britt stood up top with literally no one within 50 yards of him.  At least this season Neil’s brought a bit of flair in general played people in their actual positions. Admittedly he appears to have lost his *** In this respect in the last few games. I’m not making a case for Warnock’s long term vision by the way, whatever the *** that is. Just that he is marginally less crap than Pulis.
    • Warnock was never going to be the long-term solution, with him in charge expect another mid-table finish next season at best. We'll be lucky not to finish in the bottom half this season, tbh.
