Game day .....................Come on Boro!

I think the fact that no one has commented on this thread since 15:52 yesterday speaks volumes. Guess I’m not the only one lacking optimism! :)

Am i a knobhead for wanting us to lose, just so monk is more likely to be sacked?

 

sad times indeed but the guy is a fraud and i don't want a posative result to paper over the cracks.

I don't know you as a person but I'd say if you're a fan of the boro you should never want us to lose?

How about this - you want us to win and go on a run and Monk proves everyone wrong and becomes the best manager in our history and we all high five each other and be proud we kept the faith, both in our team, manager and not least the chairman?

But - if hes not up to it, he is found out as soon as possible and the appropriate actions are taken by our chairman? After all, Southgate was sacked after a 2-0 home win so you can still have faith and get what you want.

You are indeed a knobhead if you want us to lose. Understand fans want Monk gone but never understand wanting your own team to lose no matter what's going on. No one has to support our manager if you don't want but I'd suggest to call yourself a Boro fan you need to support the team through thick and thin... just my thoughts.

Just look at it this way, at least we're not Sunderland fans :)

 

Are people expecting a vastly changed team today or more of a "we go again" kind of lineup. I'm on the fence, I want a settled team, but then again we looked **** against Millwall...

    • Big Sam would have been better than Pulis and Mr. G should have paid him handsomely with a lovely promotion bonus too.  Also a big fan of Leo Percovich on the coaching staff, been out with him a few times in Yarm, proper lad! Have a few stories for another time. 😉
    • Well I can claim absolutely zero inside knowledge and don't even make a habit of reading the Gazette any more, but even a blind person could see that things are rotten at the club from top to bottom, based on most of the things p-mards mentioned in his original post. Player recruitment - an absolute joke the last few seasons. No obvious plan with regard to building a competent, balanced team, with adequate cover in all areas. Always seems to be late rush-jobs, getting anyone who's cheap / free and available. Or occasionally splurging on a "big name" thats out of favour at their club. Hence the lamentable squad we're currently lumbered with. Also not helped by the frequent changes of management. Coaching - non-existent for quite some time, as far as I can tell. At least since Karanka left anyway. Players actually seem to get worse instead of better. Management - no stability for the last few seasons. None of the incumbents has had the chance to really put their stamp on the team. Major contributing factor to the state of the squad with lots of players leaving / coming in and changes in playing philosophy. Chairman / Board - well the buck ultimately stops with them (or maybe just Gibson). I would very much like to know just what the hell they've been doing since 2009. From the outside, it looks like they've spent most of their time faffing around at Rockliffe Park, playing golf, having saunas or whatever. They certainly haven't spent much time planning the club's future. We had 4 seasons of parachute payments after getting relegated, which gave us 1 season to have a crack at bouncing back, followed by 3 of consolidating in the Championship, if it didn't work out. Also sacked Southgate after just 13 games, while we were in a reasonable run of form. First knee-jerk sacking IMO. Since then, we've had periods of boom & bust (more bust though). They clearly didn't manage the transition from PL to Championship very well, as the club has had to undergo drastic cost-cutting. We've brought in managers on short term contracts to keep us afloat on a shoestring budget. Infamously got Garry Monk in and loosened the purse strings so we could "smash the league" - then sacked him after just half a season. Okay we didn't look like getting promoted, but also smacks of idiotic, short-term thinking. Nowhere in all this can I see any evidence of simply getting a manager in on a reasonable (3 year) contract and simply giving them time, plus reasonable resources to just rebuild the club to a stable, healthy position...without the pressure of either keeping us up, or getting us promoted. No evidence of trying to recruit competent coaching staff, to go along with our top-class training facilities. No evidence of trying to build a scouting network, or appointing a director of football to help get our player recruitment on track. This collective of clowns (again - maybe mostly Gibson) has managed nothing over the last 11 years...except to make the club a laughing stock.  
    • I don’t think Big Sam would have taken the job. We lost Pulis because he wouldn’t take a pay cut which in hindsight is ridiculous. How many teams in the history of football have offered a decreased salary to an existing manager, it was absolute amateur hour in the boardroom.    I’m with you on George, but I do think that Ravel Morrison has something about him too. 
    • Hahaha *** hell, seriously *** off
    • There must be many situations where disciplinary action is completed before criminal action. If not Sheffield Wed or Wigan could get promoted within 2 years and then because of being under a different jurisdiction could escape punishment.
