No matter the result today this is much more like it, we’ve competed, made chances and got goals. Yes it may not be perfect but we’ve played football for once.

Why would it be to spite keane? Surely randolph playing rubbishes all of the rumours from this week.

He's going down an icy road with that comment. Idiot. 

He's just telling it how it is.

I am glad he is not naive enough to take much notice of it.

Keyboard warriors are poisonous to the club.

Thought that was better today. 
Looked like we actually wanted to play football, and great to see Britt bang a couple in too. Loved his cup to the ear to the fans too, shows he’s arsed.

 

I think we’ll end up fine this season. Obviously after the start we’ve had it will be no higher than mid table, but think the goals will come and we’ll get enough wins to get out of trouble.

 

That being said, not convinced at all by Woodgate. He deserves the full season so I’m not calling for his head, but I can’t particularly warm to the guy as our manager and his comments after the match today just further show his naivety.

I do really hope it comes good for him, but I need a bit of convincing.

Ex-gazette writer Jonathon Taylor summed it up nicely the other day on Twitter when he said that yes Woodgate has been dealt a bad hand, but he’s playing it badly too. 
 

Like I said though, much better today so I’m hoping him and the lads can push on after the break and get some wins, and he certainly deserves the season.

I don’t like Woody statement at all. There are many a fan who for many years may well have been faithful, but can’t attend be it financially or location. There are many who buy merchandise for self or others thereby providing the foundation the club is built. I also believe one should listen to critics and learn. He has shown himself as a frustrated and ignorant leader who needs to learn and choose his words more carefully.

Oh, so you agree with his "real fans" comment? 🤨

I dont live locally, wouldnt buy all the merchandise because other bills take priority and going to games home and away is expensive. 

But I would support boro through thick and thin. But Woodgate can *** right off if he thinks that I'm not a "real fan". 

It's a shame cos his performance has moved one step forward but then he's moved two steps back with his post match comments imo.

This seems accurate to me. He wasn’t attacking people who can’t attend the games. His intention was to praise the wonderful fans who were there today. I’m sure the keyboard warrior remark was about those who are negative for sake of it and not about those who have genuine concerns about how things are currently progressing.

    • Whilst accepting "Barbie Girl" is a parody, I have to agree that AR is right about admitting to singing it...  though I would have had more respect for SD if he had chosen "My Ding-a-ling" 🙂 
    • I disagree that we don't have players good enough to play the ball in a more controlled and purposeful way, particularly since the January transfer window. I wouldn't say any of our defenders are particularly bad on the ball at all, and all of our forwards/wingers thrive with the ball at their feet, not in the air. Not to mention we probably have the worst keeper in the league at long balls. The way we play is completely counter to our individual players strengths and it's purely because it's the only way our manager  knows how to play.
    • we need the players to play with it on the group in tight areas to. most of our squad players dont and just lump it. because of the instructions they are given. that is probably because like we seen under woodgate, they are not good enough to play and will lose possession and cause us problems. the main thing with woodgate tactics was losing the ball and instantly putting ourselves in trouble and outnumbering with guys all over the shop. NW stopped that by making us more rigid in shape and telling them to not dally and lump it over the top. at least that's how i see it in a simplified way.
    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
