Relegation Battle

Recommended Posts

I can’t get my head round what Steve Gibson’s plan is. Even if by some absolute miracle we stay up, how can he expect Woodgate to assemble a brand new team next season with no blueprint for how we want to play? I can understand if this was a transition season and we were playing the style Woodgate wanted, but we’re not. We play no obvious system, have no clear identity, no patterns of play. It’s utterly depressing. Tonight they put a bit of effort in, but never actually looked like scoring, couldn’t find a pass, nobody could control the ball and we looked panicked every time Leeds attacked. 

I’ve never felt so disillusioned

He’s done what I feared and abandoned everything the moment it got rough, that 352 was working well but no he has to try and force this ‘Liverpool lite’ 433 on the team that clearly can’t play it. Tbf I didn’t bother to check our formation tonight I just don’t really care any more. We actually looked pretty good on the counter in the first half.... until we got past the half way line.

This team have lost any idea of how to play or attack, it’s no coincidence that the minute we revert back to his early season system we’ve gone straight back to that early season form. 
 

Please save us RedBull.

The Forrest games on Monday this gives the club a long weekend of double training sessions. As honestly Gibson needs to say Woodgate will you resign if he doesn't sack him then get a Warnock in who be here 9am this morning getting them players drilled for 4 days. I reckon if this happened by Monday night the Boro will be transformed and may beat Forrest. But nope this won't happen the players will laze around for 4 days doing pre season like drills then stuffer another L on Sky. I don't actually think Boro have won a game live on Sky this year

Woodgate press conference at 2pm today? Is this usual the day after a match? 
Either doubling down, we’re told he’s here to stay and he gives us some platitudes about heart, commitment, fighting for the shirt. Or he resigns with a heavy heart?

I thought that was odd, too. 2.00pm? A conference before Forest that soon? Wishing it's his resignation but won't be. 😒

Is Woodgate the worst Manager in the history of this football club? I can't remember a worse one and that include Strachan! We are relegated with 100% certainty if he remains in charge, the man's a joke!

I honestly reckon it will be him saying he's bringing in mclaren to help out 

And that would be the beginning of the end, and we will still end up with a dunce!

He has honestly turned a 7th placed side into a relagation team the worst manager in Boro history 20% winning record. Yet he continues 😭

Does anyone have the WDL figures for Woodgate compared to other Boro managers in the last few years?

Can anyone remember a press conference called by a manager to announce his resignation, dont they normally just slip out of the back door.

Woody stated over the next 24 hours he will take a long look at himself and the players so surprised at the conference. It’s can only be to announce, his departure, incoming assistance, or a declaration of support..

On Twitter Phil Tallantyre is saying it was arranged before the Leeds game and is purely an early Forest prematch press conference.

    • We have an official Fifa Esports player now! he's currently guided us into the last 8 of the Ultimate Quaran Team tournament being run.   He has beaten Huddersfield, Walsall, Central Coast Mariners & VVV Venlo so far.
    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
