Let’s say this season goes horribly wrong, at what point do you think woodgate would be sacked? E.g. we are in the relegation spots later on in the season

I think the only time he'd get sacked is if we were rock bottom with 10 games to go. Gibbo referenced patience for this appointment so he can hardly do what he did with Monk and fire him before we've even got half way through a season...

Even if we finish lower half of the table he's going to be here next year for me.

Any changes to the team that lost against Blackburn? 

Randolph

Dijksteel - Fry - Ayala - Bola

Howson - Wing - McNair

Browne - Fletcher - Tavernier

 

Whats the most annoying thing you've ever been bitten by? 

Mosquitoes in Venice.

 

What will the score be? 

I think we will win 2-1.

 

Is promotion still the goal this season? 

promotion was never the goal for this season.

 

Is there any chance that we're relegated this season?

Slim.

If we are in relegation trouble later in the season SG will pick up the phone and Woody will have his uncle Tony back as a mentor, a bit like Robbo had with El Tel.

I think it will be a late call, depending on how the finances look after January. We won't find many managers as cheap as Woody who are capable of coming in and turning confidence around, especially if it's true Woody is having to do the same right now. I suspect Woody may keep the job even on the off chance we are relegated, to be honest.

I’m seeing people saying even if we finish low bottom half he will be here next year. I thought the general consensus was he’ll stay as long as we are seeing clear improvement in the new way the club wants to play. Surely that sort of league position wouldn’t be showing any improvement whatsoever. 7th to sort of mid table yes but any lower than 15/16th is unacceptable in my opinion.

I'm gonna try and continue staying positive. I think we are incredibly unlucky to have 1 point so far. Wigan are pretty terrible on the road so I'm hoping we can put on a decent performance and come away with 3 points.

Probably somewhere around January if we are near the bottom 3 and not showing any signs of improvement. 

.....Unless the fans turn on Gibson, then it could be sooner than that.

I expect, that will be when Keane gets the nod.

Only improvements in the style of play, I can't see us improving whilst playing a new style of football with a few incomings and outgoings. It's a bit of a club reset and I think the expectation is the improvements in results are anticipated for next year after Woodgate has a bit more experience and has a bit longer to get in the sort of players he wants.

Seems like the focus has turned to sustainability rather than promotion for the time being which is not something that gets the fans pulses racing unfortunately.

Hasn’t that last part already started ?

I really hope we have realised Wing is not deep lying midfielder, bring Clayton back into the side. Fry for Shotton and Bola for Friend, get back to getting some crosses into the box like we did against Luton.

    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
    • None at all, at a guess, if he's expecting a big contract.
