Got to feel for Woodgate. Probably knew he would be out of his depth when offered the job but doubt if he was told he would have to do it in concrete boots.
I wonder if Gibson will give Woody some backing in January or if the genuine possibility of relegation will not phase him.

Absolutely not, he wanted this job and knew exactly what Gibson wanted of him. 

They have made a shambles of this season, it's easily the worst season I've seen in my 24 years on this planet. The only thing I feel for him is contempt.

Sorry to disappoint you but Woody isn't going anywhere any time soon.

He has excuses at the ready regarding injuries and will no doubt say players are tired playing 3 games 6days.

Woody is completely inept tactically and this type of performance sums up exactly where we are heading.

Leeds haven't got out of 2nd gear all game and we havent even had any good spells of possession in the game.

You have to wonder just what the bench will look like next week?

Are we going to run out of players?

You can bet some injuries today going along with Paddy's suspension

Oof!

Great save by Pears from a long range free kick.

At least we won't get beat 5-0 now...

 

...I hope...

I mean it's just unacceptable Pulis went there with a similar teamsheet played 5 at the back scraped a draw he's gone there with a 541 rolled over got his tummy rubbed and can't crack 40% possession it's abysmal what we're setting up to do in away games I have no clue.

I spent the time looking through every MFC manager back to Collin Todd in 1990 they all got their first away wins within 6 weeks except for Southgate who took 20 weeks, Woodgate's on 17 weeks he's closing in on a record. Bare his away stat in mind when you review our fixtures this month I'm gonna go on a limb and say Southgate's record will probably be broken around Christmas nice little xmas present for Woodgate.

It wasn't a similar teamsheet to be fair.  We had Randolph, Flint, Shotton, Friend, Clayton, Besic and Downing.  So that's 7 different players.  I would expect the team Pulis had out to be able to scrape draws and that as it was full of defenders and defensive players - Friend and Shotton as wing backs, Clayton, Besic and Howson in midfield along with Downing and Assombalonga up front on his own.  Criticise Woodgate all you like but at least be fair about it.  Woodgate doesn't have the same calibre of squad to work with and had several of them missing today on top of that.

Boro fans: Leeds are gonna smash us, never mind

Also Boro fans: Leeds are smashing us, what a nightmare, sack the manager, get rid of the players, play the U11s

He's went there setup to pack the middle, played 5 defenders and shipped 4 goals and counting it's not exactly like he's going end to end matching formation holding their possession in the mid 50's. Only one I feel sorry for today  is Pears he shouldn't be thrown into games like this he's not ready, fans get on his back and his confidence will be shot.

    • I think it says he has very little ability as a manager and that the players just turn up when they feel like it.
    • Last week was pitiful, 4 striker's and no midfield was a disgrace.  Those tactics aren't acceptable at this or any level of football.  We desperately need more experience and tactical awareness. 
    • We could get thrashed today and Woodgate will still be in charge till the end of the season, work in progress Rome wasn't built in a day, same old BS, .
    • We've played well in, maybe, half a dozen games this season.  We've been lucky in a few.  We've been bad in the majority. Even our little purple patch with MoM was 2 decent performances and a couple of lucky but poor ones. I've made my mind up on what I've seen in the past 35 odd games, which is a lack of tactical nous, an inability to set a team up to attack or defend, and a frequent toing and froing on tactics.  4 at the back, 5 at the back, wingbacks or not, 1 up front t, 2 up front.  4 strikers, no midfield. He gets credit when he earns it - and that means more consistent performances than a random win against West Brom. I think it's daft to think the man deserves any credit from this season whatsoever.  We're dire, and we're lucky there's a few awful teams this year (even if we still can't beat them).  Monk, Strachan, Mowbray - this is as bad as any of them.
