Pulis leaving would be great news but Woodgate replacing him wouldn't be an improvement.

 

Hopefully Gibson might see sense and look for a fresh start.

 

Norwich's success will add some weight that a fresh start might be the best approach as they were in the same position as us.

 

We've ran out of parachute payments and look like we're going to need to balance the books. For that reason there's going to be no pressure and very little expectation from the fans next season.

 

It feels like the perfect time to try and build something that will last, even if it takes a few years to build.

Can't even get excited about Pulis leaving if the replacement is Woodgate. Okay its an improvement, but so is being punched in the face instead of being kicked in the balls.  

 

Unless I've heard totally wrong, Woodgate is already heavily involved with the team and takes most training sessions. And can't pass his badges. I know some let's say 'intellectually challenged' lads from school who got their coaching badges no problem and work with amateurs. It does beg the question, if he wasn't a local lad would he even be on the shortlist?

 

Only thing that would make this Summer exciting would be a 'man with a plan' like Farke or Jakanovic who could come in and give us a much needed identity to unite the club and fans, plus a coherent strategy in the transfer market.

 

:funny:  Love the highlighted bit  :funny:

If a young manager (Woodgate) taking over from an old experienced manager isn't a fresh start; I don't know what is.

If he has failed his A licence, that means he can't technically become the manager anyway correct?

Any proof he's failed? If not you shouldn't be posting such things.

From FMTTM:

 

"Alan Brazil - Pulis Leaving

 

Although obviously nothing official out yet, Alan Brazil has just said that he has talked with Pulis and he will leave at the end of this season, this has always been the case.

 

We will see!"

 

I've just listened to it and his words were "I'm told Tony will be leaving" and "I knew even before the last game" 

 

He never said he spoke to TP directly unfortunately. 

 

Let's hope whoever told him is correct!

I heard it started to go wrong when he spelt his name incorrectly at the start of the written  paper  :oops:

Woodgate and Fleming have been doing a lot of the coaching while pulis was away.

 

Woodgate has zero managerial experience and it seems his main qualification is just being ‘there’ already.

 

Technically it may be a ‘fresh start’ but that doesn’t mean it will be a good one.

 

I honestly can’t see how anyone could look at this possibility in a positive light. I’d rather just get a new manager in and let him do the usual thing of bringing in his own guys.

Mendieta420 knows Woodgate would be my guess. Seems defensive over anything related to him.

An assistant already employed by the team and involved with the club taking over is hardly a fresh start. Young and old isn't the be all and end all of it.

 

For it to be "fresh" I'd suggest you need, at the very least, someone not employed by Boro already.

For the record - I'm not completely against woodgate being appointed and would be fully behind him if he does. Hes not the brightest around but since when has that been a requirement to know football?

 

I'd much prefer someone a bit more exciting though

Someone said on here a few days back that TP was going and it would be announced soon. Any more information about it

    • One thing I gleamed from the report from the Palace game (give the post a read if you havent - interesting write up) is that our team came out with attacking intent, pressed high and blew Palace away. Kinda like how I thought Luton was going to go and how I thought the season would progress. The golden thread. The philosophy which would permeate through all age groups to ease continuation through the ranks. If we are going to dominate Charlton thats what we need to do. Get high up the pitch, force them into panicked clearances, then start the attack again. With our defensive fraility it feels like attacking high press is the best form of defence and its a tactic I am not happy we abandoned so hastilly.
    • Definitely a Gibson type manager
    • You have to admit Alf was right about the rebirth of the Boro........just got the year wrong (and just about everything else   the last three paragraphs of that Gazette comment shows how much things have changed since then

    • yeah....Hughton likes giant defenders....playing with one up front ...."combative" box-to-box midfielders and favours "narrow" rather than "wide" formations.......based on South Coast and known for teams that score very few goals....does this sound familiar?....on the plus side, he is very experienced, by all accounts respected by players and isn't "controversial"...but is he really going to produce better football than people were so unhappy about twelve months ago.......(having said that, if he was appointed as a short term "keep us in the Championship" deal, I could live with that)
