Boro V Wigan 1-0 (Assombalonga)

Recommended Posts

0-1 for me... think its gonna be a rough few weeks as a boro fan. Just don't see any confidence in the team etc. Hope I'm wrong.

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.

Gibson appoints a novice, doesn't back him and then sacks him when things go wrong?  History repeating itself

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.

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.

    • This day 15th November 1994 - Boro's young guns go down to Ancona in this Anglo-Italian compatition Boro took the lead after 10 minutes then struggled to impose themselves on the game, the youth in the team v experience they were facing proved too much in the end, with Ancona levelling on the hour mark & scoring 2 late goals in the 80th & 90th to put the game beyond Boro 
    • Thing is, we almost certainly will offer him less money. And I don't think based on what he's said that he'd outright deny just less than what he's on. But tackling the wage bill would appear to need more movement than that and actually, a significantly less wage. I wouldn't expect him to stay on those terms. I'd say if the club really cares about wanting to keep him around, they need to approach it carefully, even if they are going to low-ball him to begin with, don't be a *** about it and expect him to say yes to anything because of a commitment to the club. Have a high boundary that you can't go beyond, work up to it and if his representatives think he should say no to our highest offer then we leave it at that and on good terms. No taking the ***, no expecting him to be accepting a pittance for his services on the back of the club as a whole's mistakes, something much bigger than Ayala's responsibility at this club. Most importantly for me, we have to accept the likelihood he leaves and hopefully wish him all the best if he does. I think he's been a great servant for us and I hope, unlike Derby, we treat him as professionally as he's treated being a player for this club.
