It was just talk as our first choice was Pulis, not Woodgate, in which case the new style etc wouldn't have happened anyway. Final post before returning to self imposed exile.  We seem to have co

im in the same camp as BD .  ive gone through plenty of bad times in the past as well as wonderful times .  ive seen players ranging from  absolute top quality down to rank bad .  right now what i see

I don't think it's all bad. We just need a few players in the  January window. Two centre backs. Two fullbacks. Two centre midfielders and two wingers. And two forwards.

its embarrassing to witness.  not a  single  positive  to  take from where we are at the moment.  Randolph  is  wasting away his latter years in the game  being in this  shambles of a side.   Browne needs hooking now.  Shotton is what Shotton is and is playing on the worse of his two sides but Browne has left him totally isolated.  Clayton chasing shadows, Howson awol,  Assombalonga totally ineffective at everything  , maybe he can score goals  but we might never find out in this game.  Woodgate, well cheers Mr Gibson , hope youre  proud of the latest  bad decision.

Pulis spent 20 million last season though and a much better squad, of course he was going to do better, doesn’t make him a better manager than Woodgate. 

To be honest they are both absolutely *** and should be no where near this club

Pulis also sold for what 40?

From what I know he's been actively trying since promotion season, however he wants to keep a high percentage in the club.

That seems completely deluded to me. Who is going to want to a buy our club when Gibson will still want a huge part to play

Anyone starting to think that Woodgate didn’t actually beat Jokanovic in the interview process and was actually given the job because he was the cheapest?

That's exactly what it was.

I can tell you privately how much Slavisa was offered and terms and conditions if you like

Blaming Gibson for recruitment when the manager's said 3 main targets he identified in his interview were signed and a month in 1 of them's been displaced by Ryan Shotton at LB is not something I'm on board with.

If Gibson was ruthless he'd have asset stripped the expiring contracts, Britt and Randolph in the summer instead he gave Woodgate an expensive squad and 3 of 'his' targets other Middlesbrough managers have come into worse squads.

Did anybody else actually get interviewed other than woodgate? Or did Gibson just make it look like we tried?

Regardless he still had a much better squad. 

If he was still here we would still be ***, except we would be paying a manager 60k and allowing him to sell every player he could to get his cut
