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.

    • Or maybe there won’t be one. We can’t keep everything under lockdown until the virus is completely gone or there is a 100% cure. Obviously money is a question because a lot of jobs depend on the football industry but the professional sport itself is a very safe environment for everyone that’s in it.  The governments around Europe are simply starting various businesses up that is deemed safe and professional football behind closed doors isn’t dangerous in any way. 
    • I suspect much of  the league is going to be in a similar position. We're quite lucky to have so many players running out of contract just as this economic crash is coming. I can see most of the league desperately trying to cut their wage bills.  Biggest downside is no one will be willing to spend money on Britt.
    • I would have said they were on a revival before the season was stopped. They were sixth in the form table over the last six matches. That was what seemed strange about the previous manager leaving - unless they had already lined Nathan Jones up to return? So  it could go either way for them. I guess for all clubs it’s like a new season starting, what with long term injured players returning and the fact that some players seem to start a new season quickly whilst others take time to get their form and settle in.
    • Haha, just wait until the inevitable second wave hits us. Some serious questions will be asked.
