'Other Boro stuff'

Interesting, he's done well at Darlington from what I've heard. It would be strange to recall him without intention of getting him involved. Injuries to Fletcher and Gestede may have forced his hand. Maybe more injuries we don't know about?

He's scored 4 goals in the National League North from what I can see?  Looks like he might be in the squad though so good luck to the lad if he gets a chance.

I heard the Darlo manager talk about him on the radio the other day and he had plenty of good to say about him. Still, Darlo are where they are, good luck to him if he gets a chance indeed but quite a step up!

If you're just looking at league games then it's a record of 16 without a win held by Karanka (10) and Agnew (6) 

A lot of the other bad runs tended to have a win thrown in somewhere.  Someone mentioned Robson before Venables, we only went 9 without a win but 8 were defeats, we'd only won two games all season and we hadn't won a home game at all heading into December.  Southgate managed 14 without a win during the season we went down so that's the longest with just one manager but we never lost more than 3 in a row during that run because we drew some games within it.  During 96/97 we went 12 without a win prior to that Blackburn game and the season before that we also went 13 without a win, which featured 10 defeats.  Fun times!

CT. You are a top man. Thanks for that. Seems 14 is the record held by 1 manager then. That being Southgate. Dont think we lost more than 2 in a row under JW.

7 goals in total he's also got 3 in the FA Cup

Ayala is 29 today, it felt like he was older.

Get that contract extended, plenty of years left in his legs and we'd be desperately short of senior defenders come the summer.

I think he'll keep his options open unless we can offer him the same or a very similar wage. He's still one of the best centre-backs in the league, sentiment will only go so far. He might not even need to go that far to get the same or a better wage. I suspect the contract will run out, time will pass and, assuming we're still in the Championship, then in a couple of weeks after he leaves there'll be rumours of us still negotiating with him before he signs for Leeds.

I agree with you, there are plenty of nearby clubs who'd be able to offer him a decent wage and currently aren't facing a relegation battle with a threadbare squad.

He probably wouldn't even have to move house if he signed for one of the other Yorkshire clubs.

Careful now! You'll start an argument about whether Middlesbrough is in Yorkshire or not. I've seen it happen before (admittedly on less cerebral forums than this one.)

It's no problem, it's an indisputable fact.

It was nice of Huddersfield to give our away fans £10 tickets for a Yorkshire derby.

Middlesbrough were nice enough to offer our fans 2 for the price of 2 for the coming "Yorkshire Double".

Darren Randolph named in Ireland's squad.

Told you he was "injured".

As discussed in another thread, this doesn't at all mean he's not injured.

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
