My honest preference is that everyone concentrates on getting a win, this is the most important thing, the circus surrounding the game should be attended to afterwards.
The potential departure of Woodgate should have no bearing and I for one do not want to consider it a good thing to lose against Leeds if it means getting rid of him.
The one person who oversees all of this seems to have taken an age to show concern, it maybe too late but whatever the truth I want to see the players rally and play for the fans
Middlesbrough V Leeds aka "the s hit finally hits the fan day"?
For a variety of reasons there could be something to look forward too.
A rare Boro win especially at home?
A departure along the way?
Going to be an atmosphere in the ground that is for certain especially with SmogDane bellowing out Viking battle cries!
Maybe Blanco can accompany him with some unheard Celtic phrases.
