Lose tonight and I can see the fans turning against Woodgate big time, you can only put up with so much and our patience is wearing thin.

I mean the historic reality is we need another 10 wins from the remaining 29 games to stay in the division if the remit's simply avoid relegation I can't imagine him being under much threat tonight will probably decide whether he is truly up to being a manager or not you do whatever it takes to win the football match tonight a loss would put such a dent in the perception he's the right long term manager he could end the night untenable with alot of fans I agree.

I don't think that Gibson or the club cares what fans think, though.  It feels like we're seen as an inconvenience which needs to be tolerated, rather than an asset which the club can work with.

My concern is that the atmosphere will turn hostile and affect the players; limiting results even further. 

I am very concerned that the club don't seem at all bothered about things. It feels like we are sleepwalking towards relegation like we did in 2009, and by the time the club wake up it will again be too late to do anything about it.

Without the fans the club is nothing. So if the club do see the fans as more of an inconvenience then screw them.

Am I really the first to mention, that  @Uwe has put Howson as central defender?

I'd go 
Randz

McNair, Ayala, Fry
Howson, wing, tav, Coulson
Britt, Fletcher, O'neill

That's where he played the full 90 at the weekend. Woodgate prefers to keep McNair in midfield so I wouldn't be surprised if Howson reprised his centre back role tonight.

Ahh, thanx. I didn't see that 😄

I kinda thought Mc'Nair was kinda offensive for a CD v Hull 😄 😛

Yeah Howson was CB against Hull.

Maybe I'm a bit daft (OK, definitely, I know) but I still fancy us as a 4-3-3 team. So my team would be:

Randy

Howson Ayala Fry Coulson

McNair Clayton Wing

Tav Britt Fletch

Or maybe Bola into left-back for Wing/Clayts, Tav into midfield for a bit more mobility in there and Coulson further up. Said I'd rather not push Coulson up top but think we're pretty much out of options up there right now.

Horrible weather for it. Hope the Boro can lift my spirits as the only thing worse than watching Boro lose is watching Boro lose with soggy trousers...

Got to be winning this though, by hook or by crook. 2-0 Boro

Is that the team which has been announced, BearSmog, or the team you are suggesting?

Team should be announced in 45 minutes, unless someone on FMTTM has got it.

It's the team that I reckon we will put out.. One change, Coulson in for Johnson.

I suspect that will be the case too. Or he'll continue from where we left off on Sunday, with Tav in for Johnson on the left and Clayts in midfield, with the addition of Fletch on the field.

I do hope he has learnt from that mistake.

    • SDS you mentioned on another thread that you believed we would try and push again next season, obviously providing we are in the same League.  Do you still believe that to be the case? Who do you think we will offer new contracts to and who will accept?  Any info on that please? 
    • Sadly all too true. We take strikers with good records at other clubs and turn them into frustrated, isolated attacking midfielders...when we're not trying to play them as wingers.  
    • At least I'd hope none of us would end up having 4 strikers on at once. If we needed any further evidence that Woody hasn't got a frigging clue then that would be it. 🤦‍♂️  
    • Yeah now we have loads of domestic players who apparently have a great team spirit, yet they’re performing terribly on the pitch. I’d much rather have Karanka’s intense management style over Woodgate’s “happy losers”.
    • I'm holding you to that. If we manage to stay up you've got to do a "Bernie Slaven" - or the nearest possible equivalent (I'm guessing Binns is long gone). 😁   We have a team of half-decent players, playing like they don't give a toss and a manager who's doing the best impression of Nero outside a West End theatre. There needs to be a major attitude change (from everyone) otherwise the dire performances will continue and we likely will end up in the bottom 3, because the other teams are at least playing like they want to stay up.
