I agree it was much, much better but we were still so far behind Leeds it was an indication of how far we have fallen. The team would still need to improve in all games until the season end to get the points tally to survive and I don’t see that happening. Facts are facts, 2 shots on target in 3 games, 8 wins and the lowest amount of goals in the league. Facts!
Boro were better in this game than they have been most of the season and still could not flow or string passes. They huffed and puffed, and they ran about but there was no shape or form.
i don’t take any heart from the game because it was obvious Leeds were not having a good day but still ran us ragged, still found gaps and cantered to a win.
Don’t expect the same from Forrest, oh no, they are coming for all 3 points and the slaughter could be embarrassing.
With 11 games to go its to late to bring anyone in simply the team won’t adjust in the time left. Players know they have just 11 games left before packing up and moving on. Most will be booking holidays and removal vans.
The only question SG has, do I support Woody hoping we survive and save face, drop him put the coach in charge and hope.
Woodgate press conference at 2pm today? Is this usual the day after a match?
Either doubling down, we’re told he’s here to stay and he gives us some platitudes about heart, commitment, fighting for the shirt. Or he resigns with a heavy heart?
Well I can give you my opinion in one word after watching that trash last night and that is "Dire".
I am still baffled after a season coaching these "So called strikers" that Robbie Keane still as not found a combination or system to get them playing together.
We could honestly have had 6 forwards out there last night and played a 3-1-6 and still those 6 would have been running around like headless chickens without any idea of how to put the ball in the net.
No matter how many pass's were going into that last 3rd area Boro were never going to score a goal this side of Good Friday.
