Throwing the young lads under the bus... Lovely

I thought that when I read it. Yet, his best 2 results came with young lads in the team. Still, this is his gig and he has to do it as he sees fit. He possibly wont get a better chance of being a manager.  After todays show however, if any of the out of contract players who played today get offered new terms It will take my frustration to a completely new level.

Well to cheer myself up I’ve bought a bottle of whisky and now just seen Wales lose in the six nations so every cloud and all that 👍

Gibson needs to bite the bullet sack Woodgate and give Karanka the call

Gibson does not want to see it, as Woody is nice and cheap. That fits nicely when we drop to Div 1 NICE and CHEAP. Walking blind folded in to Div 1 with the likes of daft Maddo on Tees talking rubbish every week.

The real reason that Maddo and Mark talk total rubbish is if you remember the last person to tell the truth alongside Ali was Slaven and he was sacked and banned from the club by Gibbo.

Mark and Maddo both need their jobs and its easy money telling fairy stories "Once upon a time Boro where a formidable team"..😁 See I can do that job as well.

But Never accepts his part in all of this.

So having Shotton, Friend, Ayala (happy with him) McNair, Saville, Clayton, Britt, Howson, Fry, Fletcher along with a keeper (a full 11) are going to do much better?

I THINK NOT!

Gibson has created a situation where no local media scrutinise the club due to fear of been banned. That's no way of going about it

You know you cannot turn good players into bad ones overnight.

This has been coming long before today's games and for him to drop the youngsters I have to say I fully agree with him in that sense. They cannot be held responsible at present when they have off games because they are still learning, and they need to be rested every other game or so. But today he needed that experience out there and the fact is that he never got it, mainly it is down to him and his tactics or should I say non tactical game play.

Players saw he shot his bolt the last game they also saw he lost his way sometime ago Woody is hanging in there because of only one reason (Gibson) it as nothing to do with his managerial skills we all know that, because he simply has not got any.

I would also say looking at the way experienced players are performing on the pitch for him  just proves he has also lost the dressing room.

Boring...

So today is just what we are now.  Utter crap..

I've no idea what the hell is going on, basically Gibson is clueless when it comes to football decisions, the big issue to me all that happens at decision level, we then get JW who has to work with whatever budget he has and is totally inexperienced.  

I'm a Boro fan of old and can remember when it was terrible however, I don't even care if we lose at the moment, all I want is change and a club that wants to win, I mean really win.  I'm not at the club and none of us are what goes on behind the scenes but it all looks like we are in free fall.

But he said at the start that he was the best one to help bring them through because he knew them and how they ticked. 

He has given *** sound bites all season and now they're coming back to haunt him.

Defensively, we require high quality because we don't have good defensive shape in midfield, unfortunately we have struggled to find s settled defence due to injury and shape tinkering.In essence we have, if fit and inspired with confidence, a top championship defence, in spite of having poor choices at full back.

Midfield, we lack any real quality, poor players, lack of pace, fitness and ability.I don't want to single individuals particularly, they're all culpable, but Clayton his head hasn't been in it for a long time, and he needs to be 100% motivated to overcome his limited ability. Wing, is a poor player (playing two leagues above his standard) with a good shot. Saville is very, very limited. Ravel dicky dancer. McNair looks like a CB playing in midfield and strangely looks like a midfielder playing at CB when played there. Lacks game intelligence.  Tav, has ability but is raw and learning, ditto Coulson, who I think is a better winger than LB. 

 

Up front, Britt is a poor footballer and a total drain on this club, Fletcher plays well in flashes, Gested dogdirt

 

It's a huge rebuild, we're short of a competent strikeforce, certainly 2 players. Were 2 creative midfielders short, and one defensive one, and probably 2 defenders short. It's a mess and even if we survive we're still probably 2 years more rebuilding away from having a team that could challenge for promotion.

    • Hi all, just after a bit of help. I'm trying to reset my laptop. It is a fair few years old now and has been through the ringer, a fair few times it has hit the wall and I have managed to fix it by myself, but this one seems beyond my capabilities.  This issue has been going on a while but I'm only just getting round to it since I finally have some free time. When I turn my laptop on, It makes the noise as if it is loading, but I just get a black screen (it is still backlit but nothing ever appears). I have tried the Novo one button reset, which actually brought up a screen for the first time in lord knows how long.  However, no matter what option I choose, it then goes back to a black screen.    Anybody with any ideas at all on how to fix it or what's wrong? I was using it as a media server for Plex before it left so there were a lot of files on there that may have corrupted if that helps diagnose it at all?   Thanks in advance
    • Gazette seem to be suggesting club and JW want him to stay given his influence around the place. I should have added the above post was not my own prediction of who will stay or go but more what Gazette are seemingly suggesting. 
    • The police struggle with their duties during a short spike in crime on a regular day. That, along with the government's long desire to portray the changing face of crime and how we increasingly need to change to fight more digital crime, is going to be a factor in how many coppers we have on the streets to enforce these things. The government has now been forced to accept that enforcement may be needed to keep people indoors, which goes drastically against their ideal distribution of officers. Going significantly against their ideal setup is becoming quite a theme during this pandemic. As I said earlier, this doesn't mean higher levels of lockdown are on the way, what it may mean is that higher levels of enforcement will be dispatched in order to enforce the current lockdown procedures.
    • Why would we want Friend to stay, He was a brilliant player, now he cannot play three games on the spin. 
    • Just catching up on some Gazette articles and it seems picture with the out of contract players is become a bit clearer if Gazette are to be believed Set to stay: Howson & Friend Club want to stay: Ayala Set to leave: Shotton Clayton Johnson & Rudy I think Ayala staying really is 50/50 at moment.
