I don't honestly know how many were Woodgate's choices and how many were identified by our 'scouts'.

Exactly, and probably why stojanovic isnt in the squad.

He does always try to find the positives. He seems like a top bloke from what I've heard but he does find himself in a very difficult situation when trying to criticise even the worst of results/performances. Still, it's harsh calling for someone who is just putting his two cents in to be sacked.

Maybe you should be sacked from this forum!

I suppose the issue is whether he is able to have a certain amount of detachment from the club as he's also an employee of the club, in order to comment on our performances.

Ok we all know who we face next and many have said that our players might suddenly be up for a fight and put on a good performance.

All for that BUT if we do what should we make of all the rubbish we have witnessed of late?

Will it be clear that the players are just players and not a team?

And should we be miffed if they do put on a good performance?

Just a thought

Quite honestly I will be even more *** off and I think my feelings will be borderline hatred.

This is supposed to be a professional football club and the players are paid (maybe not brilliantly by Championship standards, but still well by normal ones) to give 100% week in, week out...not just make an effort when they feel like it.

IF by some miracle we get anything from the Leeds game, I will be somewhat relieved that we are still maintaining a gap between us and the bottom 3.

But overall I will be raging at what this shower of *** has done to the club, all because they couldn't act like the professional footballers they are supposed to be.

 

Its all very well hating the manager, not liking having to play out of position, or having a problem with your team mates, but at the end of the day, you're being paid to do a job and you should damn well do it to the best of your ability.

If any of us did our jobs as badly as this lot, we'd be out of work pretty sharpish.

And just to finish my rant...why do we seem to have such dire injury problems EVERY season, stretching back as far as I can remember? Why do we always seem to be playing 2-3 people out of position and having to make emergency loan signings?

I know injuries are normal and something every club has to deal with, but our always seem worse than most.

True but I honestly don't think Maddo's comments would change much, if at all. He was brought in by the club after his radio work, wasn't he? Nothing has really changed since then.

Before today, Barnsley conceded in every one of their last 17 home games, conceding 34. 
Up come the boro...who don’t manage a shot on target 😂

Well, it's been quite a while since we've been as bad as this so his views should have changed along with that surely?

I honestly genuinely think we will get at least a point from the Leeds game.

Do you actually think it or do you just hope we will?  If it's the former then what are you basing your beliefs on?

This needs to be kept and used in every match thread until such time as Woody is no longer manager.

If his style is to pick out the positives, why would it? Similarly to Slaven, even when we were doing well, you knew Slaven wouldn't hold back his thoughts on bad things, I really think this is heading into tin-foil hat territory.

what the *** is this long ball *** we're playing every week.. knock it into the corner and chase, only the knock is usually awful and just gives the ball away.

what happened to the 433 high pressing high intensity attacking open football?

we are brutal.

woodgate has completely lost his head and has to go.

Because maybe it was less about his 'style' and more about the fact that we were a better team and hence there were actual positives to speak about?  There aren't any at the moment.   It's also not his job to find positives in every situation anyway.

Not hope, belief. I've already said it before today that if I was a betting man when it came to Boro I'd have put money on us losing today and winning against Leeds and it goes back to what I said to my mates during the Luton game. This lot wouldn't be putting in the shower of *** display if they were actually up for the game. And I think they will be up for the Leeds game at the Riverside as they usually are.

There was a point before Woodgate made his changes that we could have been winning our battles and we weren't, players like Howson and McNair didn't give a cack. And I think we will at the very least try to win those battles against Leeds. The Riverside will be after a result more-so than they were against Luton, for sure, and not just because of the gap to the bottom 3. The players should have more individual motivation for the game stemming from the fact its Leeds.

Or perhaps I'm over-billing the game and it will be just as drab from us and Leeds will slaughter us the way Luton and Barnsley have not been able to. I know I'll be one of few thinking we can beat Leeds after the last 3 but like I say, that comes down to where I think we've lost them and how that will in my opinion be different for the Leeds game. I could be very wrong.

Woody - you just said you take the stick and flack. You know you aren't doing well enough. That means you should do the honourable thing and walk.

    • If we stay up what's the chances of us landing Taylor?
    • I'm simply going by the fact that it doesn't seem to mentioned anywhere that they haven't been paid.  The Charlton forums I looked at haven't mentioned it and generally you'd expect to see it there.  It's not like that kind of thing stays secret for very long, and with all of the grief he's getting, it would be reasonable to assume that if he wasn't being paid, that he'd say so to defend himself.  All he's said is that the decision has been a really difficult one for him to make but that his fear of injury is such that he doesn't want to play, and that he knows he'll be seen by some as being greedy.  It's also perhaps worth pointing out that he was missing for two months earlier in the season after being injured playing for Montserrat and I assume he still received his Charlton wages then as well.  All in all, he'll have played about 4 months for Charlton this season but been paid for all 12 months, unless they refuse to pay him this month, which they should.
    • Apart from some unfounded speculation on here I have seen nothing to suggest he hasn’t been paid. Do you know that he hasn’t been paid? If he hasn’t, then I’m surprised he hasn’t just said so, instead of saying he can understand if people think he is a money grabbing player with no loyalty, but hopes that people will forgive him for only thinking about himself.  There is nothing to suggest he hasn’t been happy taking his pay during the last few months without lifting a finger and now he can only think about himself.

    • Where is the evidence to prove he has or hasn't getting paid? I haven't personally seen it yet.
