I wonder if he was brought back too soon?  He's been injured twice this season after playing just one game, which seems a little odd or incredibly unlucky.

He was brought back too soon from injury last season as well which ended very messy

Woody said it was a different injury but very possible, when it's the player knocking on your door desperate to play rather than just being approved to play. His only game all season, did he even play in any pre-season or U23 games? Bound to have an effect.

Friend's the new Gestede, coaching role for him looming....

He has done his coaching badges to keep his options open so very well could happen in the future. He is deciding between that or using his Sport Journalism degree and writing for a paper. I think we will still see him back Feb onwards.

Well there aren't many teams who have been worse than Boro this season, but poor old Barnsley are definitely one. Just the solitary win so far and they've conceded 2 goals for every 1 they've scored.

If we can't beat that sorry lot, the entire team should resign and get paper rounds with the Evening Gazette! 😁

 

For once I'm hoping Woodgate does "focus on the positives" from the Hull game. That first 45 minutes should give our lads the belief that they CAN play decent football. If we can replicate that performance, I can't see past 3 points for us.

I confidently predict tomorrow is going to be WINSday for Boro. Think we'll only manage a couple though and rue a few missed chances that our grannies could have scored. 

Prediction: Boro 2 - 0 Barnsley

We've got to be beating Barnsley, if we can't win this one then I honestly don't know were the next win is coming from. Would only make that one enforced change from Sunday, Coulson/Bola ( take your pick) in for Johnson, the rest as you where.

Anything other than a win and Woodgate in principal  should shot the towel in, but he won't because as he says he's enjoying it, haven't got a clue what the *** his enjoying mind.

I predict a 0-2 win for Barnsley. 

Woody will come out after the game, say that we played well, the scoreline is lying and he's happy with the victory.

Every time ive seen Dijksteele he has looked like a CB playing out of position. Rather have him CB and Howson RWB with Coulson LWB. Everything else as you were.

I actually think we will get our first 3 points for bloody long time here. But (and these days there's always a but). We will make hard work of it as we really lack composure at the back. So there are going to be some serious pin ball incidents in our box.

However. We should have enough to beat a very poor Barnsley side. I am still not convinced we can keep a clean sheet so I am going 2-1 to the Boro. 

Boro to go 2-0 up. Do something incredibly stupid to allow Barnsley to get a goal back and then finish the game with a very nervy final 20 minutes.

But seriously. There can be NO excuses for Woodgate if we do not get a win. For me it could only show that the players have no respect for him and want him gone.

GAME DAY

 

I dont think they will be as open at the back as Hull were first half as they will be thinking about not losing as a priority. But if our movement and interplay as as good as that opening spell we could finally get a win, and a convincing one at that. Im going 3-1 Boro. Britt, McNair, Britt.

That sounds very like the Hull game, and therefore extremely plausible...

I think both teams will start the game so scared/desperate not to lose that the first half with fizzle out with a few half chances for both teams, probably us missing the best of them. 2nd half we will push a bit harder and take more risks getting a goal ~70th minute and then holding onto the 1-0 for 20 minutes to get a much needed 3 points. 

After the game it will be repeated it's more about the 3 points than the performance, and we push on to Leeds Saturday 🙂

Barnsley  haven't won since 1st game of the season, averaging over 2 goals a game against, 36 in total, we've got to be looking to play with the same level and intensity that we did 1st half against Hull  and blow these out the water. we're at home on our own turf, in front of our home fans so  I don't buy into this nervousness crap, you go out and get the job done no excuses.

I see it totally different, I believe Boro will be straight out of the blocks and will want to get into the same position as the Hull game prior to the sending off.

If we do then I expect Boro to carry on in the manner they had hoped to do against Hull. They will be looking for goals and plenty of them.

If Barnsley do a number on us and we revert back to cagey football then we deserve to go down.

    • I think what's amazed me most about this season isn't the crap football, but how mute our local media have been. It's like they've been castrated as of lately they're absolutely terrified to call out the table position and results for what they are, which is horrendous.  I can't remember who it was but someone said that Maddo who I have a lot of respect for was trying to defend us getting beat yesterday, if that's the case then my goodness  
    • That's my favourite as well, it is the only kit i have ever actually owned, and i have been a regular since the 70's. I guess i am just a tight ***, my mother bought me that one when i was a kid, so that means i have never actually bought one myself. They always used to release them too late, you could only wear them for one or two games before it got too cold. They release them earlier nowadays which makes sense, still not buying one though.
    • I am all for giving new blood a chance, otherwise you dont know what potential they have. You have to look at it objectively weighing up his actions and words over time. If he is consistent and you see them sticking to their philosophy, seeing some development over time you give him more time. We seem to have gone backwards on and off thenpitch unfortunately so the price must be paid by him. The next long term guy might get similar results but I might see a system and development on and off the pitch that would make me accept poor results. I suppose we are all different.
