Boro V Sheffield Wednesday 1-4 (McNair)

Recommended Posts

Forget about the season still being early but I hate to say this has a familiar feeling and all the hallmarks of Sunderlands relegation season.

We seem incapable of playing basic football

Can’t believe Pulis got 7th out of this team?

He didn’t did he.  He had lots of different players.

One thing I will say is the refereeing has been bad again - not that it's made much of a difference, but he's made some inconsistent choices.

My 2 cents on our 'style' is that 'attacking' as has been described of Woodgate's style usually is 'rush it' football whether thats rush your throw in (Their 3rd goal), rush your touch, rush your press or rush your pass I don't think that style will ever guide us anywhere personally.

We'd suit a 433 possession based style maybe lack a winger still but Clayton/McNair/Wing would be tighter together we'd have more energy because we'd actually control possession and maybe we wouldn't face the 20 crosses a game we seem to face every week it's the best 'style' for the players we have and we might actually utilize our expensive full backs more by building play slower.

The people who left early are gonna have the hump when they get home and see we've won 5-4.

Or they might just go and do something that will entertain them.

Nothing anyone can do today to turn this around you do not get many 4-4 draws so it is game over, however I hope no-one refers to this as simply a bad day at the office because the amount of pressure we are under next game is enormous.

Woodgate needs to fess up and rip into the players after today's performance

How did Britt miss that 

Because he misses chances far more than scores and missing only amplifies the situation. We are not a confident team anymore

    • We all knew Woodgate was inexperienced but to surround him with the likes of Keane and Leo was crazy. The bloke is on his own and out of his depth. Needs to go 
    • I heard the same that Gibson didn't trust McClaren whilst he was in charge but I guess overtime relationship must of been salvaged.  I can't see Woody getting sacked simply because it will cost us a fortune so other avenues are getting looked at. Everyone in coaching team and above think we're too good to go down, players on the other hand think different if performances are to go by.
    • He shouldn't of been put in charge in the first place. But now we are in a dilemma on who would replace him. Gibson won't hire anyone that's already in a job. Mangers that we where after before Woodgate are now in a job or too expensive i.e  Jovanivic (ex fulham manger) I doubt he would go back for previous mangers likes of Karanka. Does he go back to a defensive mangers (Allardyce), do we twist on another rookie (Leo, Under 23 manger), do we take a risk and pay for an expensive manger but has a reputation for attacking?
    • At any other team this would not happen! If we are bringing in someone to help and support Woodgate, why on earth had the job been given to him in the first place??? Honestly man, our club. Just how badly run are we?
    • I thought Gibson fell out with McLaren?
