unfortunately not mate. the substance was short lived.

On Braithwaite: He has been very good in training. He has not told me he wants to leave boro so I will take that as he wants to stay and goes on to reaffirm he been best player in training.

Asked if loan market a more likely option than Permanent: We will see. Both options will be explored.

On Captain: He confirms George Friend will be Captain. That is both club captain and team captain. Calls him a fantastic leader and a great example to the young kids.

Of course George is captain. I can't imagine why we'd change that.

Because he's not very good?

Neither was Leadbitter, he was still captain until he left.

He’s an incredible role model and completely ‘gets’ the club, he should be club captain until he leaves/retires.

That's different though, Leadbitter was made captain during a time when he was one of the first names on the teamsheet, and deservedly so.

Friend as club captain is fine, but shouldn't be a guaranteed starter.

I dont think him being a team captain does make him an automatic starter. There are plenty of examples of players that are team captain but are not guaranteed starters. Valencia was team captain at Utd but was not a regular. Jagielka at Everton last season. Morgan at Leicester is another. 

Friend being team captain does not mean anything in terms of him being a guaranteed starter imo.

But each of them were appointed to the role when they started every week. So even though they've dropped out of the team, like Leadbitter, they are never actually stripped of the captaincy.

For me, when you actually appoint a captain, you choose someone who will start when fit.

Friend was appointed captain on Leadbitters sale, I thought, which means he was picked when he was something that was chosen when fit.

Just a thought, has Woodgate not thought to ask Braithwaite what he wants to do? 

It would seem like a pretty important thing for me to find out if I was the manager.

    • The Daily Fail are reporting that Galatasaray are in for Lyle Taylor now... Odd one that.
    • So what you are saying is we could stay up or we could go down. 
    • I just looked at our fixture list and honestly don't see why we should all but consider we are going to be relegated. I think that if any time was good to change the momentum of the table, it's right now. We could just as easily stretch the gap a bit more between us and relegation as we could fall into it again. I'm not saying it's all positive but I don't think I'd classify our relegation as probable based on our fixture list, tbh. So many of the games we have left are much of a muchness. Our highest opponents are Bristol City, Millwall and Cardiff and two of those are home games. We have two pretty big away games with Hull and Stoke, both of whom are currently making headlines by their dispute with the EFL. QPR, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday are all teams with close to nothing to play for and I reckon its those sat in the middle that could end up truly losing their momentum and motivation to play to their best. And finally there's Swansea who can maybe still make the play-offs, I think that if we can beat Swansea, Hull and Stoke, we're sound. IF. It's all hypothetical but basically, I think you can put forward an argument for either side of it. We can definitely still get relegated. We can definitely still avoid it and I think right now, it's pretty much in the balance of individual sides and how well they deal with what's happened over the last 3 months and very little to do with where we sit compared to them or how our season's gone to this point.
    • No and we're probably going to get relegated. Just look at our remaining games.
    • Looking at it the wrong way around CT. We haven’t lost in four months
