That first half season (2018) after Potter left, they played some really good stuff? That could have been a bit more down to a "hang-over" from Potter's reign though. The 2019 was a write off for them though, although statistically they still averaged more accurate passes per game than we have this season, by about 100 passes.
Wild guess here. He's been assured that he will get handsomely paid while working under an owner who is setting no real demands. It's a pretty easy job for him, this.
But in case you are right I hope he doesn't change his mind about those he bring in 6 months down the line.
I'd bet that Warnock will be our manager next season...unless he has a sudden change of heart / health.
To be honest I'm not sure this is the right time to be getting a new manager in and changing things around. Until there is more clarity / certainty over the future of football in general and the club gets back on a sounder financial footing, I think we'll be treading water.
As I've said before, I'd be very surprised if NW stays more than another season or two, purely on age / health grounds, but I think it will take at least that long for Boro to start thinking more long-term...unless, as some have suggested, Jepson takes over the reins.
After all, prospective managers (the good ones anyway) only tend to take on jobs if they feel there is an interesting project, worth investing their time and effort in.
Until Boro can show they are that kind of club again, I think we'll be pretty limited in the kind of managers we can attract.
