What would be the point sacking Woody if we lose on Monday. We would need 13 points from 10 games or 1.3 points per game. Basically the team needs to improve on past form by around 30% over 10 games something virtually impossible. We dropped the safety line taking 1 point from a possible 9 giving the bottom three below us points. A massive, massive blooper riding rough seas without a captain. 
As the season comes to an end we enter silly season and we are seeing teams around us gaining points 

Well it wouldn't help this season, for sure, but at least it would send a signal that Gibson has finally lost the blinkers and is taking some action. Probably still end up in League 1, but at least we wouldn't have to put up with Woodgate any longer.

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

Even if he sacks Woodgate on Monday if we lose its too late, the damage will already have been done. 3 points from safety with difficult games left a team absolutely devoid of confidence and ideas. 

Gibson so have acted much earlier and chose to stop the rot, instead he is waiting till it has firmly set in before even thinking about acting. 

I still want him gone though!

That league cup win is such a distant memory now it feels like an entirely different club.

@sanddancer. I am slightly baffled as to why you keep asking what is the point in sacking Woodgate now?

Are you saying you want him to remain and are confident he can keep us up? If you are then that is fine btw. Am not having a go at you for it but i am getting impression you want him gone but are thinking it pointless doing it now?

He needs to be gone asap to prevent him being anywhere near the re-building job that is surely needed.

The advantage of sacking Woodgate is that it gives us a far better chance of avoiding relegation. We’re absolutely doomed with him in charge. We need a manager that can drill our players into an effective unit until the end of the season.

I did not support his appointment but willing to give him the benefit of doubt. I still believe he should be removed but having looked at the statistics I can’t see how anyone coming in now could turn the ship around, well apart from a possible bounce with a new manager. My worry is bringing someone in of poor quality and being stuck with them next season.

We should have moved heaven and earth to bring in Nigel Pearson after Pulis. 

Look at Watford since they sacked and brought Pearson in they are completely different side. The Boro would have the same bounce if we appointed a manager who could actually drill the team into shape.  Can't believe Watford deserve to be smashing Liverpool 3-0

Surely the word as got to be out by now after numerous managers have left Boro under a cloud.

That Gibson is a dictator and if you come to the MFC your career is over and that means no decent manager will except the job until Gibson sell's up.

I don’t disagree with you but the right manager needs to be appointed and I don’t see were they would find one right now.

Yeah i agree on the new manager bounce. I feel that is all we need to get to safety. Lets say he gets sacked after Forest. A few wins and draws should be enough imo.

I think we can all agree this squad is not as poor as our position suggests but there is a poor manager coaching these players. Therefore a new half decent manager for last 10 games can hopefully see us safe which should be our priority right now

There's Hughton available isnt there? Is Nigel Adkins in work? Karanka? Plenty of decent managers out there regardless.

Warnock is the one lined up though. 

Woodgate has to win on Monday I'm hearing after previously being set a target of 6 points from the last 4 games.

Warnock could be in by Wednesday.

I said all along in posts, this team is far better then what woody has managed to get out of them.

    • Strange how our fittest and least injury-prone player seems to be a 36-year-old who will likely join the coaching staff next season.  
    • Is Warnock plain lying when he says the players have had 2 solid weeks training? It seems pretty obvious most weren't in until the Thursday of the 1st week and Payero for example has only been back for a week?   I really hope Scott has got this in hand and just giving him enough rope but is starting to get a grip behind the scenes. If not it doesn't bode well for him being in charge of all football side of things.
    • I had a few quid in my betting account. Stuck it on 3-0 to Peterborough at 51/1. I just have a bad feeling that we will have worked on nothing in the break and Peterborough will win the fight and the players will simply give up when going 0-2 down. At that point I’m just hoping for a “sacked in the morning” chant. I’m not proud of saying stuff like that but I just want him gone and start afresh. 
    • So, defenders you say  ...  Bamba to play three times 90 minutes within a week .. yeah!  Lumley  Youngster, Bamba, Paddy, Youngster  Howson, Siliki  Tav, Sporar, Jones  Uche 
    • I've gone for a (Middles)Boro win, more out of hope than expectation. But it really does depend on whether our lads are in the mood for it or not...plus how much Warnock rants at the officials. Pretty desperate, isn't it? ☹️
