Boro V Preston North End 1-1 (Fisher OG)

Recommended Posts

I imagine Preston fans will turn up in their droves given the weather will make it feel like home to them, today.

trying to have a bit of positivity  for the game and of course the result  plus the  performance but sadly  if im honest,  the mere fact that id be reasonably happy with not losing  again  is where my mindset is at .  fair play to all the  fans that  believe and trust that things will turn round  but i must admit im struggling  .

I think they's going to be a goal fest as Preston like to play this open attacking football aswell

I can easily stomach another loss, if the players give their all! 

All I want is MEN on the pitch... Players who believe they have to fight, who know they can bring something to the team... NOT cowards who play with an alibi... 

Regarding Woodgate . he still has my backing very much - I won't be judging his style untill the January window closes. 

It's Tuesday, I have MFC TV subscription, I am home alone, I have 2 cold pale ales in the fridge and a bag of crisps and I support my team the best I can, not only when we play good.

I think most the fans can, too. I think the fans can take dropping points right now so long as we look like we should have won. It's already happened at home this season when we've played well enough to win and the players have been clapped off despite dropping points, I was surprised but happy to see that. Can't remember which game it was now but I know we didn't win.

Millwall it might be ?

22 replies on a MDT, a few hours before kick off... That's sad .. 

It is what it is, and I'm looking forward to each game .. We are not some special people who can demand a big change over night... It takes time ..  I have a feeling we might surprise tonight.. On the pitch and in the team selection ?

I've not lost my excitement for going yet this season, I'm looking forward to it again. Come on Woody and the lads, let's show some intent from the kick-off.

Do I have to set off for this? York isn't even that far from Boro so I pity those travelling from further. Any kind of improvement on Sat will be nice...

After Saturdays non performance, I'll settle for a draw, for me I'd put Howson and Tav in  midfield, drop Wing and Clayton, Ayala in at CB and Shotton back at RB, heads have got to roll after that pathetic defeat against Sheff Wed.

Well Teddy's happy that the Boro are being shown on the box but I wonder what his reasons are?

Staying up late on a school night for a 6 year old is appealing or simply because he gets the watch the red and white?

Either way let's hope he goes to bed  happy instead of being bored to sleep:classic_biggrin:

    • How bad do people think it would need to get for Woodgate's job to be called into question? I can easily see us losing away to Barnsley then losing two more on the bounce to Leeds and Forest. We would be teetering on the edge of the bottom 3, if not in it.  Would then be the time to roll the dice on a Warnock type keeping us up? Or will Gibson trudge on no matter how bad things get? I have a really nasty feeling we will ditch Woody once we're cut adrift from safety and it'll be too late for anyone else to change anything. 
    • I'm not ITK in any way, but I think the aim is to ensure MFC can survive long-term without reliance on Sky money. I guess we took that for granted in the PL days, and the last decade has shown how thin the gruel really is when your highlights appear on Quest rather than the BBC. Steve Gibson's antipathy towards agents has been documented in the past, so he probably hated pouring millions into empty vessels like Guzan and Barragan while we were in the PL. I'd imagine his current vision is for us to become a Southampton-style club, keeping afloat by selling the cream of its home-grown talent to bigger clubs, and building on the Teesside sense of us-vs-the-world to forge a strong connection between players, management, club and fans. There's only so many times you can bet the family silver on incompetents like Monk and Strachan and their here-today-gone-tomorrow mercenaries. Unfortunately, Gibson has lost touch with modern football, and what it takes to be competitive. He lucked out with Karanka, but appointing Woodgate was the latest in a string of fundamentally bad decisions he's made post-Aitor, including (but not limited to) thinking Steve Agnew was the answer to staying in the PL. Woodgate isn't up to the job, but who among us would say "no thanks, Mr Gibson, I'm not sufficiently qualified for this position at present?" We'd bite his bloody arm off to do what Woody is attempting to do. I think there was a masterplan before this season started - more than we've seen since Aitor arrived. But it's failed. Gibson either isn't ready to admit that, or still believes a relegation dogfight is the bitter medicine we have to swallow to become the club I described two paragraphs earlier. Tragically, if we'd appointed a DoF five years ago, we'd probably already be there. It would be interesting to see Gibson's level of interest in MFC if we end up down with the dead men in League One. Let's hope he pulls a Venables-style rabbit out of the hat before we get to that point.
    • I’m sure that it was a club decision, that makes it seem even dafter. There are factions in dressing rooms at every club, that’s just human nature, you get on with the people that you have most in common with.    Anyway, it really didn’t work did it?
    • I honestly think the main goal is too become self sufficient... of course promotion but I think the days of Gibson spending exuberant amounts of ££ are long gone.. short term aim is to ensure we are in this league next season whilst continuing to reduce the wage bill. Medium Term Aim is to create an team of youngsters with a spine of experience and hope we can improve as a team. Do I think SG has lost interest... No is my honest opinion... have we made awful decisions... yes without doubt.. allowing Bevington to take control of transfers in the summer was by far our worse move... set us back more than  just Woody. Was woody on a hiding to nothing... Yes he is a local lad being hung out to dry , I know we all criticise him etc but how many of you would of taken the job of managing your home town club.. no brainer for him , only a tenth of what Jokanovic plus his staff wanted. Really wish we got a DoF in place and was told that's what Woody wanted as well. With regards to the PR the club are spouting that's just Natural. Season ticket sales etc are the main aim now. We dont sell many then the club can say we didnt have the funds to sign anyone in summer.  Am I confident in Woody... not really , would I love to see him succeed? Without a doubt. He needs to find a settled 11 for the remainder of the season and stick with it though. Only way we grind it out in my opinion.
