Relegation Battle


Recommended Posts

There is no vision of what he is trying to achieve. We don't know his style or anything and as the season has gone on it has become worse and even more shapeless if that seemed possible. We knew what Mogga was doing even though it wasn't working with split strikers, we knew what Karanka and Pulis' philosophies were but I have no idea any more what on earth Woodgate is doing or trying to do. After 30 plus games there should now be a style and shape developing and the "transition" a work in progress. All I see is comedic, calamitous, clueless, chaos. It will be interesting how the 2.00 pm conference is anything other than a departure or the return of Pulis/Mac or Warnock arriving.

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

Hope not considering your user name. 😬🤣🤣

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

If the 2.00pm Press Conference was already prearranged it probably means nothing in terms of any development on his future or otherwise. There are just over five hours between now and then and a lot can happen in that time. If it goes ahead as planned I hope the Journalists present ask the questions the fans want asking and not from the pre screened, pre approved politburo list. Would make a nice change to see some real Journalism instead of gagged sheep toeing the party line.

Someone on fmttm said they may as well just replay one of the last few press conferences, it'll be the same drivel as usual from Woodgate about the Forest game. How sad that Gibson has just let this carry on. Too late to bring in a new manager anyway, probably. We're going to get relegated and all season it's just been silent from the top. The club has lost its soul, total mess.

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

That sounds about right. I think people are living in hope of JW departure but I believe we are stuck with him.

The Journalists won't thought as if they do they be banned won't be allowed back to another press conference!

Today’s the day BORO drop into the bottom 3. Lowest goal scores in the league joint lowest wins and worst current run of form. A return of 1.05 points to date, a forecast to finish of 48 points. That is IF we can improve form and bang out a couple of wins. 
I have not yet come across a person who thinks we will match forest or why Woody should remain in charge. 
Today’s the today the coffin lid was lifted in position and the nails made ready.

Wigan winning 

Boro now 3rd bottom and 2 points from safety

3 actually Wigan already level on points.

Huddersfield winning no good for us either, nor Stoke.

Charlton, Wigan, Boro, Barnsley and Luton three out of that five to get relegated

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
