People criticise Gibson constantly, and it's only got louder in the past few seasons.
Not sure where this idea that he never gets criticism is coming from, you go on any Boro forum and a sizeable chunk of posters will be laying in to him or wishing for a foreign billionaire.
No and its not healthy. I've seen posts on fmttm today with people saying they'll back Gibson even if he takes us down. That's fair enough but how long does this unconditional support continue?
I think some would let him take us down to non league and still chant his name in the ground.
I think people look at clubs like Sunderland and Coventry and worry that we could end up like that. They never mention clubs like Leicester and Wolves who have been similar sized clubs to us for the last 30-40 years.
It was always seen as sacrilege to criticise Gibson and it would have been madness to even think about him leaving, but I think he's gone stale now. I think if the club wants to be a club competing at the top end of this division again we either need a new owner or he takes a back seat and leaves the strategic running of the club to someone else.
Gibson is probably the best thing to ever happen to this club, the journey from 86-06 was incredible but things have gone completely stale. It feels like we need new ideas at the club now.
