Right then, first of all to address borodane referring to a ‘Middle Eastern despot’. I’m going to assume that’s a reference to Man City’s owners. They are morally repulsive, and if I was a Man City fa

Blackburn got relegated with 51 points the season we were in the Prem. 4 of the last 5 seasons, 42 points has been enough. Comparing both 16/17, 18/19 and this season after ~32 games, the bottom

My honest preference is that everyone concentrates on getting a win, this is the most important thing, the circus surrounding the game should be attended to afterwards.

The potential departure of Woodgate should have no bearing and I for one do not want to consider it a good thing to lose against Leeds if it means getting rid of him.

The one person who  oversees  all of this seems to have taken an age to show concern, it maybe too late but whatever the truth I want to see the players rally and play for the fans

I wonder if we've already waited too long and let too many six pointers pass us by.

There's still a quarter of a season to go, so there is still time to get out of it. Obviously though something needs to change in the next week.

If that's true I'd take a defeat tomorrow. 

You want the next manager so much you want us to lose? Come on, mate. I know you've been a relatively vocal critic from the start and there are reasons beyond his managerial capabilities (or lack thereof) that mean you want him gone but so much so that you'd like us to drop points?

I have to say it again as you seem to think it's got something to it... do we really want what comes next if it's anything like the rumoured appointments? Warnock or McClaren? In my eyes, they almost certainly keep the job beyond the end of this season too if they keep us up.

I'd personally rather we won and continue hope we do so in every game as that surely represents a more positive turn of events than sacking a manager and having to hire one of the British Manager's Lunch Club, who all lick their badges whilst singing 'Money, Money, Money'.

I agree Warnock or McClaren would both want to manage next season as well. If anyone is likely to come in for 10 games or so I think it would be Pulis. Not what many would want i would say.

I don't really want someone like Warnock but I believe he'd keep us up. With Woodgate I believe we are going down whether that's this season or the next so short term I believe we'll be better with Woodgate gone. 

Putting aside my feelings about him as a person I don't think he's a good manager or will become a good manager either so why would i want him here? 

Losing one game isn't the end of the world, persisting with a bad manager is a much bigger problem. I know most of us don't trust Gibson's decision making any more but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to change things when they are clearly going wrong.

There is no way in hell that I would accept a defeat to Leeds just to get rid of Woodgate. Despite what I think the result will be, I go to the Riverside tonight hoping I am proven completely wrong and we play this with a blood and thunder cup tie mentality and get 3 points.

If we win Woodgate might get a stay of execution but there again Southgate and Monk both won before being relieved of their duties and if the decision has already been made then tonight's result won't affect that. Ideal would be a win with Woodgate going at the end of it. If there is even a slim semblance of hope that he may just hang on in there for a bit longer then its better to lose tonight and end the circus which started last summer. Whilst he remains in charge we are going nowhere except League One, better to act and begin the repairs while there is still time and games left.

I always want a win and a win tonight would be really helpfull. And then he can sack Woodgate. I don't want Warnock but if it's a choice of keeping Woodgate or sacking him and hiring Warnock for the remainder of the season I'd reluctantly take Warnock. But not for next season. We've just gotten rid of Pulis. I just want someone with a bit of experience.

If we beat leeds then fair play to Woodgate. Give him another chance against Forest to do the same. 

I think fans genuinely want him to turn it around. 

But if he cant in the next two games, and nothing changes. I'd find it very hard to get behind us for league one. 

Not because I'm supporting a different team, but because its accepted that we wouldnt change and stop the drop.

Win tonight Woody, I dare you. Prove me wrong.

    • What a difference a week makes! Brilliant to see the new signings starting to come good. Looks like the new head of recruitment can spot a player! 
    • I’m not getting carried away, again we have played better against a struggling Cardiff team.    Im worried that we don’t seem to string passes consistently together but then when we do we seem to create clear cut chances. I wonder how good we would be if we did that more often.    Happy for Payero today, I really think he’s made our midfield a bit more dynamic and without Howson and McNair in there to slow it down we look better going forward.    Tav is so wasteful. I wouldn’t want to drop him, but I think he thinks he’s better than he is and I can’t work out why he doesn’t play the obvious pass but then would moan at Uche for not squaring it to him.    Uche was a handful all game and I’m gutted he didn’t get a goal, another day his left footed curler goes in.    We rode our luck and should have conceded but the luck has been with us the last two games so it’s about time.    not getting carried away but can’t complain with three wins and clean sheets on the spin. Go team. 
    • At least Warnock has a future in HR training when he decides to pack football in.
    • Hard to argue against me being fickle given I was vocally calling for a change after Hull.  We've lost this season with better performances than against Peterborough. We've also only beaten 3 poor teams, but I'm back on board right now, and I'm glad to be so. I like Warnock as a person, so even when it was going badly I wanted a change for results rather than because of who he is.
    • Derby drew again. You're not gonna stay up by drawing, guys
