I've always thought it was obvious that it was spin that they were Woodgate's first choice targets.

I notice Marc Bola has liked the post confirming that Bevington is getting sacked.

Does that mean that he wishes he hadn't signed for us?

Superb article from The Athletic published today... Gives you a real sense that something special is being built. We've been crying out for this for so long.   Michael Walker 2h ago  2 

It is emotional blackmail and the situation has been clearly fabricated, if you look at the handwriting its obvious that Wayne Rooney wrote that letter. 

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

Hold on a second.  Are you saying that the now infamous PowerPoint presentation never happened and that Woodgate didn't have Bola, Browne and Dijksteel pencilled in as our priority signings?  Why would the club lie to us and toy with our emotions like this 😭

I am saying I'm not sure the club own a projector for said presentation. Cost cutting etc

At this point who cares? He cost little and isn’t half the player of George or even Coulson.

on the DoF.. I think it’s good Woody is involved. You’d rather someone he can work with and shares similar ideas.

A friend sent me this, I think its from some Charlton fan on Twitter. They were using it to show how unsustainable their goalscoring was (very high chance conversion, very low chance creation) but at the other end of the table there is massive room for improvement for Boro. Start scoring some of those chances and the points will come.

Apparently the story that Woody did a PowerPoint presentation isn't true. He used crayons.

Interesting tweet from the ponce... tends to know bits and pieces. 

 

"The club aren’t seeking a replacement for Bevington because Kenyon is back in the fold. Expect to see him in that stands again I’m the next few weeks ..."

 

What a coup it would be to get Kenyon as a dof style figure.

Suggests there will be a big change in my opinion. Doubt he’d be back if not considering the lack of money we seem to have

Well it's well documented that Gibson and Kenyon are friends. Could be doing it as a favour to him while he co continues his own business ventures. Could also be just in an advisory role like when we appointed karanka.

    • imo, anyone who criticises Marcus T either doesn't see us playing very often or doesn't have a particularly good understanding of the game. Not meaning to sound harsh, but his contribution to the team is very clear to see. He's not perfect by any means, but then not many players are, especially at this level. If you're just simply looking for players to criticise then there are usually about 8 or 9 players you should start with before Mr T each game  
    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view
