Boro V Barnsley (A) 0-1

Recommended Posts

Probably been mentioned but apparently that was Barnsleys 1st clean sheet in 16 home games since the opening game of the season, so coupled with our inability to score against Luton  the team with the most goals against in the league, well done to our players, give yourself a round of applause.

Britt absolutely awful again, our performance with Britt in the side awful again. He wasn't the only poor performer but he has been awful all season, please drop him and sell him on. He's the Deontay Wilder of strikers, crumbles under any form of pressure.

Rare I like Vickers' articles, but he has it absolutely bang on there. Looking at our remaining fixtures, I am very worried we could drop down to League One now. 

Gibson should be taking the  risk and getting someone in who at least has a clue how to get the squad playing and gain enough points to keep us in the league, but he won't. 

To me it just feels like the club aren't concerned about relegation. Time is running out fast, if a change needs to be made, it has to be now. 

Could be very ugly in the stands vs Leeds this week. Expect they'll crush us. Won't change Gibson's mind though, won't budge on Woodgate. 

Hate what we've become as a club and where we are. There's got to be a way around it. The appointment of Woodgate from the start was an atrocious decision but seems Gibson had that planned all along, once Pulis had left the place. 

This team isn't responding to Woodgate any more. Throughout the fixtures in Xmas the players/youngsters were saying spirit was good despite our awful start to the season and struggle until Christmas, but I feel that has changed now. 

Very concerned we're heading down as it stands.

IMVHO Woodgate is the short term problem and Gibson is the long term problem. Can anyone see anything really changing under Gibson? Given recent history?

He did save the club and sometimes it's better the Devil you know but these days Gibson seems clueless or disinterested or both and if he is can he please accept it and if anyone even half competent is interested can he do what's in the long term best interest of the club and either appoint a good team and step back or sell up.

Well the day Barnsley beat us, I reached my 65th birthday so I can now get a cheaper ticket to watch Boro. Only 54 years to achieve that and now Woodgate has made them not fit to watch! I need him gone.

Could be some truth in this. Gibson has made a succession of risky and unsuccessful decisions and hasn't really learned from them. He put Southgate in charge, with no management experience or even coaching. There are no prem league managers in the last decade that didn't at have at least a years experience of coaching plus fully badged up (which requires at least a couple of years coaching. 

He replaced him with Southgate, which was an utter disaster.

Then we had the Mogga years, underfunded failure

Then Karanka and the only good decision he has made, a rookie manager, but with 5 or 6 years coaching behind him.

Then it was Monk another terrible decision

Then Pulis, anti-football, similar type of appointment to Strachan, experienced, but didn't really work and lost the fans

Now Woodgate, which is another reincarnation of Southgate but without learning the lessons of last time, he needed an older head as guidance

Were do we go from here? Well we need a chairman that will learn from mistakes, not flip-flop between management styles, and will support his managers properly. We've lost most of the last decade through mismanagement from the very top

    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
