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.

Couldn't have put it better myself.

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

    • The latest round of testing has returned 9 positive tests with no new cases at the Boro
    • We know Ben Gibson is capable of vice-captaining a promotion side and looked good for us in the Prem. We know Dael Fry performed poorly in a side around the relegation zone in the Champ. If the choice was between the two, it's a very easy one..
    • My view - which I know is not a popular one - is that Gibson has been extremely unprofessional and if one of our non-local players behaved in the same way then fans would be absolutely furious.  I also suspect that people may be disappointed if, as is sounding possible, he rejoins us because it will take him a while to get back to the form he had before he left us - if he ever does reach the same level.  He is not the magic solution to our problems which people seem to expect him to be.  I don't think coming back would be a good move for him because expectations are such that he is being set up to fail. He hasn't played a competitive match for goodness knows how long.
    • Seems to be the rumours I'm reading and the Gazette have reported about it over the last couple months. Just came to my mind again because the oneboro website reported it today.
    • Is he off to Leeds? He’ll struggle in the top flight.
