The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.  

(I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)

Gibbo's preparing to fold the club up. That's the only logical explanation. The January window will be interesting...

Definitely seems like Woodgate isn't cut out for it. But he's also not helped by his ridiculous backroom staff either, all equally as inexperienced in their roles as he is in his. And what on earth is Leo doing back? I'm sorry, I know his chest beating is popular with a lot of fans, but it just smacks of desperation from Gibson to appease the fans to me.

Getting Leo back was a joke the moment it was announced, it was so obvious why the club went for him. Someone posted on here that we wanted him back as keeper coach but he refused so we just offered first team coach job, if that’s true then it’s even worse.

If one thing does my head in as much as our local obsession it’s our equally bad obsession with former employees. Even our one target for DoF job was an ex employee. If we had got round in then that would have gave us a management team of 6, of which 4 being former players/coaches.

Its maddening how small our pool of options always seems to be, if there are rumours of a new ‘exciting’ backroom appointment you can almost guarantee it will be some uninspiringly boring ex/local.

We could always use him as the half time clown to warm the "Remaining " fans up.

Nothing at the club at this time sits and feels right does it?

We will soon be relying on Gestede to play the full 90 mis knowing only too well that another injury is somewhere nearby waiting to show it's face.

We have had far too many long term injuries also compared to other seasons.

Far too many undisciplined moments of late which makes you have to ask yourself who really wants to be playing at the club.

It certainly doesn't help that there's one very popular player amongst the squad who is currently pursuing legal action against the club.

Morale is at an all time low.

That is a very good question. The phrase rats and sinking ship comes to mind. I wonder how many players would do a runner in January should they be given the option?

Who and why? I guess it’s about money.

Probably not a good idea to name them but it's because they were rushed back from injury last season and then promptly got injured again.

Seems a bit odd. Doesn’t that happen all the time everywhere.

It’s that Rudy Gestede isn’t it! Could never understand why he’s so popular!

Yep. Sometimes it takes an outside eye to see the problems that those on the inside can become blinded to.

Talk about not being able to see the Wood(gate) for the trees...

From watching the highlights, the keeper is absolutely shocking once again. Any average keeper and we wouldn’t have conceded the second and third. Imagine what having someone that bad in goal is doing to the confidence of the defenders. 

 

If we sell Randolph and persist with him it will likely get us relegated

Which is why it is SO urgent that Gibson takes action, sooner rather than later.

Bad morale is like a disease that eventually infects everyone. Even the keen youngsters like Spence, Walker etc. will see whats going on, not see any light at the end of the tunnel and start thinking they may be better off elsewhere.

    • Can't see that happening myself. It'll probably be very late in the window should that happen.
    • You were snorting Absinthe? In my early 20s, we were snorting Pro Plus before uni deadlines.
    • Gibbo to sign to today, just my opinion nothing else
    • Words from Leo last night .... Certainly very passionate.... I like the comments enforcing he is assistant coach not GK coach and that he always shows good discipline 😄   "After I watched the interview with Mr Clotet, the, Birmingham City manager, after the game; I noticed he mentioned my person, with a misinformation. I feel wronged to have anything untrue said about me. Let me be clear, I didn’t even raise one hand. This is why I want to express my thoughts. You can say anything you want, that is a human right, and I respect that. However, when questioned in the interview about your own goalkeeper shouting for help, a response was given that the goalkeeper was not being watched. Surely, given our bench, and the Birmingham city keeper himself was shouting for help, somebody must have noticed. If not, I apologise. I was trying to protect my player, as is always my number one priority. After Tavernier got a head injury, players of both teams called with urgency for the team doctor and for first aid. The game was still in play, and our team doctor and physiotherapist were running into the field to give the necessary assistance, as is common practice with a head injury. The referee blew his whistle before the goal was scored - therefore the opposition team scored a disallowed goal. Mr Clotet went over the throw-in line to celebrate the winning goal, when Tavernier is still getting first aid assistance. Then is when I reacted, coming to telling Birmingham manager; "Respect, stop the celebration, look how bad is him on the field" I want to make this very clear; in 14 years as a staff member in my career, this my first red card. My good discipline teaches me how to behave with challenging situations when I think I am not met with the same respect. Even if I was spat at, there’s no reaction. I didn't throw any punches as was said. Also I'm not the goalkeeping coach of Middlesbrough, I’m assistant coach, and as coaches, we have to be aware of what is happening on the entire field, and not only where the ball is. Player safety of both teams is always of utmost importance. I will be making no further comment on this matter, and I welcome Birmingham staff at any time and wish them well for the remainder of the season. I hope you understand why I needed to put my side of the story. Because at the end of the day, life will always come before football passion."
