At least Rudy came back and tried to play out his contract. This sounds more like a move that the club has made to take him out of the squad for the final few games if he's not gonna play in all of them. Rational decision on all sides, I think.

Them not wishing Gestede well though? Guess it doesn't mean that much really but I can't see what he's done wrong since he's joined, in professional terms. He's had the off game here and there and a blip at Newport was it? But generally speaking I think he's played the best he could and worked hard. It's not his fault the club was daft as *** and offered him a huge Prem salary when we didn't need him, well within his rights to stick around to see the contract out when it's doubtful he'll ever get paid that much again. Will hopefully teach the club a lesson about spending a ton of money on crap players. Unlike Ayala, he did come back and play too...

Totally agree mate. He himself has taken dogs abuse when in real terms he has not done much wrong. Whenever I seen him play he has never lacked effort. Quality yes but not effort. And if he lacks quality then it is the club to blame not him for signing him and given him a lucrative contract. 

I am glad we can put that behind us and move forward as a club. We currently have 3 strikers at club. One is heading back to city and both Britt and Fletcher are in the final year of they contract. The latter needs to be tied down.

Warnock confirms Rudy refused to extend beyond 30th June as he did not want to risk injury to scupper his next move. He stated once Rudy told him that he told him on Thursday he can leave the club to which Rudy said he cant leave as he contracted to club until 30th June. To which Warnock said "no you can leave now. I am given you permission to leave off Rudy went".

Poor from Rudy and i did not criticise him in my earlier post as did not know that is what happened. However, if it is how it played out then given how club has looked after him during his endless times out injured, it is selfish he refused to play on given our fragile league position.

Anyone have any idea if any other players will leave before Thursda

Hope not as the 5 that remain in Howson Marv, Friend Shotton and Clayton all have a big part to play. All 5 were in squad today and 3 even started.

Aye. Warnock said he will know on Monday. Obviously if someone makes one of them am offer for next season they may decide it isn't worth it. Tough position to be in.

Must be hard for clubs and players. The PFA seem to be trying to make it harder for everyone banging on about offers of lower wages. They may end up with no wage at all.

It isn't the best way to end, but I don't blame Rudy for that at all. This is his livelihood we are talking about. If he got injured and then his contract ended, you don't think Boro would be giving him anything do you? He might not get a contract at all if he was injured and then has no income at all. 

No, the only fault here is with MFC, not with Gestede.

No fault at all with MFC, other than signing the charlatan in the first place I suppose.  Good riddance to a staggeringly terrible Boro signing.

I hope we keep Johnson next season. I think he’s a decent player, did well today as he has most of the season.

The whole situation is a mess. Hull lose a player for the rest of the season today because his loan expires. The player has been refused an extension as Barnsley are in the relegation battle as well. 

I don't know how but loans should have been until the completion of the league.

By the way I have no idea of hes any good just that it sucks.

My thinking was more he might think "the club looked after me when I was injured so now is my time to give something back and help them avoid relegation to a level they not been at for three decades". 

Clearly i am asking for too much of Rudy there.

I hope the players mentioned in the Gazette  decide to stay on for us, frankly  Gestede should have been turfed out of this club well before now along with the idiot who gave him such a lucrative contract. I'm sure there's a 1st division club waiting to sign him and he should be able to bag them at least 4 or 5 goals in the season. Up there as one  of the worst Boro signings ever, good riddance to a garbage player, absolute ***.

2,781.

That's the number of minutes that Gestede has played for us in three and a half years.  That's the equivalent of about 30 games of football, but yeah, it's probably unfair to expect him to stick around for 7 more games because it might adversely affect his next contract.

    • The fry incident should have changed the game in our favour and we would likely have won if it had gone in our favour.¬† However, it didn't and the game stayed as it was - 11vs11. Arguably wood coming on put us at a relative disadvantage due to his current ability Vs Fry's but this didn't cost us the game or directly influence key moments in the game. So we had the same task to do as we did prior to the game and we didn't manage it.¬† The decision didn't make us miss the chances we had to take the lead. It didn't make us go to sleep for their attacks in the second half. It didn't make us go absolutely to pieces after they scored. We were playing good football until they scored in the first part of the second half, we should have won the game whether the decision was made our way or not.¬†
    • Its bad enough losing the game in that manner but the squads gonna be threadbare now,lets hope Dijks only out with a 'minor injury', fry will be missing¬† and Tavs groin injury will take a while to recover from. At least Fletcher is back & Hall soon, Think we need a few bodies in though if we have any hopes a play off place ¬† ¬†
    • Spence isn't the real deal at RB, we knew that before kick off. We still aren't sure if he is a decent winger, apart from¬†beating players with speed (but only if the ball is played at the right time). He should have been going wide to receive the ball and put a cross in when he lost possession for their goal. His decision making was dire, trying to dribble past (or through) a packed defence with five Red shirts queuing up for a cross to attack¬†into the box. Losing it where and when in the manner that he did was footballing suicide. Watch Spence then track back (not exactly busting a gut) and to make matters worse he doesn't even get into his right sided defence position. He wanders over, lost,¬† like a ten year old in the playground chasing the ball on the left hand side. Undoubtedly Howson should have been more alert and probably been covering the RB slot when Spence had gone upfield. Switching off certainly doesn't mitigate Jonny's culpability to a degree but the blame starts when Spence lost possession¬†and then showed no fight to get back nor did his right sided partner Tavernier. We¬†had no red shirts at all on our right hand side. Losing Fry and then having an inexperienced Wood and Spence on the right side of defence was our achilles heel. A predictable accident waiting to happen. I'm surprised that Warnock didn't move Howson to RB when Wood came on dragging Morsy and Saville deeper, pushing Spence up on the right wing and putting Tav in the middle behind Britt. That's three "winnable" games now in recent weeks where we have screwed up the opportunity. Despite the Penalty farce, NW needs to take some responsibility, this wasn't an isolated result (or performance).
    • Howson was marking Armstrong at the 1st phrase of the attack, but he lost him and then was scrambling round when he lost him and ended up going towards Rothwell because he was also ball watching. Rothwell was Spence man. Pause the attack when the ball gets fed into Armstrong and you can quite clearly see Spence is stood marking Rothwell with no1 even close by.ūüėā¬† Armstrong chance in the 2nd half when he fired over. Armstrong span off Spence and fired over. The are examples which lead to a direct shot, but there was many many more throughout the game but luckily didn't lead to a chance.¬† You are right, about senior players not getting criticism I agree but it's week in week out SAME mistakes by the likes of Spence which isn't good enough. I couldn't care if they are experienced players or not, if a player is making the same mistake week in and week out, I don't want him in our team. Period! ¬† ¬†
    • Shocking post match comments from Mogga who believes he is a boro legend. Doesn't even show any sympathy towards his player almost making Fry blind.¬†
