Well, OneBoro. I’ve seen a lot of people say this is the worst boro side they’ve seen in the past 25-30. As I was too young to properly appreciate it at the time, is this worse than the Strachan era?
Always hard to compare these sorts of things but would be interested to hear people’s thoughts.
Certainly wrong to single out any individual player (and obviously wrong to confront them like that).
But a worrying sign that the fans are losing their patience with Gibson, Woody and the players.
When things get to this point you know things are about as bad as they can get.
To bring this thread back to life and to answer the thread title - I am not confident in JW. I am sorry but I have tried very hard to remain confident and when our bad run was taking place in Oct & Nov I said there was mitigation for him in terms of of injuries and size of squad. However, that mitigation no longer exists.
You can say criticise the quality of the squad but bottom line is this - this squad is still good enough to not be 3 points from relegation. The majority of this squad was pushing for play offs last season. And that is the key question imho. Could another manager, who has been dealt the same hand as JW in terms of squad, injuries and finances, do a better job than JW is currently doing. The answer has to be a categorical big fat yes.
To that end the following 3 managers I believe are sensible options we should be looking at (I am aware SG only appoints managers out of work so I am not going to bother wasting mine or anyone else time starting a discussion about good managers in work):-
1. Nigel Adkins
2. Chris Hughton
3. Neil Warnock (Happy for this to even be to end of season as I am aware given his age and his location in Cornwall he might not fancy a long term project up here)
