Which bit is the laughable bit, the £800 per week offer or the £12,000 per week he was on last season?

If true, then the £12000

Believe you me, the club is a mess behind the scenes and I have reliably informed that asset stripping is going to continue in the summer and anyone with value will be gone.

The plan was to start it in the summer just gone and we did enough to get us by until next summer, but after that we are going to be down to bare bones.

 

If that's the case and if Gibson has any love for the club rather than seeing it as a business surely he should sell if there are any serious offers from anyone who'll be able to put any real effort and money into Boro.

I will say tonight felt a bit of a better opportunity to press than we did. I saw Howson make a couple of moves and be left alone, Britt asking players to support him when pressing the ball which never happened. The team didn't press as a unit, it just about defended as one in the final third. Our shape was better in the second half, as I've said already I think we went from allowing them far too much space down the left to stopping that without making a single sub so there's a positive if you want one today. But another thing I have said for a few weeks now is we just can't seem to prepare for games properly, in that we don't look ready in the first half. It's difficult to impose your wanted style of football when you can't prepare for the simple things without a shuffle and rethink at half time.

Yeah we certainly don't press as a team now, that's been almost abandoned since the start of the season. 

The changes helped to get us back into the game but it was just a case if getting bodies forward and being direct. I didn't feel like we did anything creative tactically in the second half.

Just a thought or two...

When was the last time we got cut apart like this? Yes was 2-1 but could easily have ended up being beaten by 4 or 5

Also, when did we batter a team and be so dominant?

The whole insult for someone who was a very good servant for us.

The offer was made to him half way through last season and was offered to start straight away meaning he would lose 6months previous wage conditions.

Leeds at home always comes to mind under Pulis, the Bamford hat-trick with Traore running rampant.

From what I have heard, he wants someone to be the money man but him keep 60% share.

I'm not quite sure I believe that in all honest, but it's the rumour in the playing staff.

Now that would be just completely ridicilous and no business man would entertain that. (Hence why we probably haven't had any interest).

Last weekend we were 4-1 down at half time...

Absolutely no chance of that being true.

I'm sure I'm missing something but what does he bring to the table to make that offer even remotely tempting to anyone? Is he some behind the scenes genius and I'm missing it?

Here's an easy way to look at things Woodgate's got Monks team with a sprinkle of his own players plus Lewis Wing/McNair I dug into Pulis last year for being only 2 points better than Monk had when he was sacked with a better team I thought when people said free pass we were talking 10 points under Garry Monk would be acceptable right now we'd be lucky to be 20 points off Monk's tally in December.

It's all about perception people see 'transition' I only ever saw a Monk lineup with *IMPROVEMENTS* I can not believe how badly setup we are it's jarring to see our stats at the end of games we cede everything to every team we play it's just unacceptable we're talking about relegation in October it's stunning to me how bad Woodgate is as a manager and I had the lowest of expectations but he's underwhelming at every turn.

The only thing positive to take from this game is Randolph stopping a cricket score, honestly don't know how Woodgate turns this around.

Maybe Gibson would be the director of football in this new scenario. ??

Haven’t we got a left back in the youth system who can fill the gap? No offence to Shotton did his best, but square peg in round hole... also need more support for Britt. Play 3-5-2 formation Woody.

    • Excited by Gibson and in particular Benkovic who is very highly rated by many in European football. The concern which has been raised by a few people in this thread is why invest significant money on these loan deals when this season in all likeliness will end up as a dead rubber season. I would much rather have Gibson, Benkovic and that caliber player next season if we are going to make a push for the playoffs.
    • We won't be going up this season and we won't be going down. I just hope all these loans have a 12 month extension or automatic buy option, otherwise we are just throwing good money after bad.
    • The problem I see is that we could still leave ourselves hanging if we want two and only sign one. It definitely feels like we could do with a couple of quality additions at the back. And if Gibson goes to the wire, we could leave ourselves in the lurch as our other targets, ones not just us are after, will move elsewhere. The lad from Leicester in particular seems like someone with a bright future and a decent career so far too, I'd be disappointed to see us miss out on signing him because we sign Simpson and we throw everything at getting Gibson and falter. I know some on here have switched off already for this season but I absolutely want to see us go for it so long as we can. I see very little point in switching off so long as we don't kill off our summer plans by doing so, let's finish as high as we possibly can and hey, even top 10 would be something after our start to this year. So yeah, I'm sceptical of Gibson signing without any cheap permanent by the end of it but by all means, get as much quality in as we can and give it a go.
    • D Blackburn  v  Q.P.R. H Brentford  v  N/Forest. (no scorer.) A Cardiff  v  W.B.A. H Hull Cty  v  Huddersfield. H Leeds  v  Millwall. A Luton  v  Derby. A Wigan  v  Sheff Wednesday. H Reading  v  Bristol City A Tranmere  v  Sunderland.. D Rotherham  v  Ipswich Twn.
    • I am not saying this because it seems the Gibson deal might be drifting away from us but I am quite relaxed about the whole situation. i think the reason for that is we seem to be eyeing some decent alternatives in Benkovic and Simpson who both come with a lot of promise. For once we not put all our eggs in one basket. I know club are looking at two CBs but if we get 1 of the above 3 in I will be happy with that. if we dont get either of the 3 then I will start to worry. Oh and i still got hopes our beloved boro will make a out the blue type signing for the top end of the pitch. Ideally more Lee Tomlin out the blue and less Adlene Guidioura out the blue.
