Is that a promise that we will beat Swindon and Exeter so my on-going quest can be fulfilled?

Wouldn't like to make that promise, cos I reckon Richie Wellens could easily out-think Woodgate. Mind you, the way we're going, I think Richie from Bottom could out-think him.

What's Gibson trying to do if he doesn't get rid of Woodgate? I don't understand why he wouldn't, performances are dire, relegation looms, why would he not at least try to avoid that?

I just don't understand the logic, someone needs to explain to me in simple terms why Woodgate is still here.

Because the chairman's an arrogant buffoon who doesn't like being proven wrong, that's what it boils down to.

Woodgate has inherited a poisoned chalice as the club has made so many mistakes over the last few years.   We needed an experienced manager as we needed a complete rebuilding job.  The appointment was wrong but now we need to pull together or we’re going down.  The only thing that matters is staying up.....

For those wanting Woodgate sacked, who would you appoint?

If that is the case then arguably Woodgate shouldn't be held responsible. I don't agree though, this is at the very least a mid-table side. It's not balanced with quality across it, at the top end of the pitch there is a distinct lack of a player or two who can forge something out of nothing (besides seemingly Roberts) but there is enough there to be comfortable of avoiding the drop.

I would argue that JW is accountable as he clearly cannot evaluate a players strength and weakness. Trying to play expansive football with the players he had at his disposal was a seriously flawed decision. His constant chopping and changing of personnel and formation has helped none of the players understand what their role is or how he really wants them to play. I am surprised people think the players we have are better than they are. I haven't seen any evidence this year or last really. I was in the minority last year when I said Pulis got more out of the team than the sum of its parts and I still stand by that. We have pragmatic players that can stifle teams in a war of attrition but ask them to play attacking football and ours and their weaknesses are exploited.

Steve Gibson's dog would do a better job.

While I am traveling on trains etc I play alot of Football Manager and I have led Boro to win the 2031 Champions League now that's a long term plan. I have to admit though I struggled this first season with the squad but still finished 9th so I believe I could do a better job than Woodgate has done 😉

Hmm, yes I also had a sterling career getting Kidderminster into the prem and onto champions League success.  Very hard but with a good chairman and good scouting and thinking about my tactics and training it went well.  Oh an my door was always open for the lads to come and chat to me

Well that's good enough for me, Gibson take note we've just found the next Boro manager and its a long term plan, Gibson's got tunnel vision so I bet you don't get the job.

Woodgate is in the middle of a period of intense self reflection if you believe the Gazette, I wonder what this long hard look at himself will reveal.

 

i agree he's been hampered by the transfer policy which is a complete joke, we constantly fail to get good players and misuse the good ones we do manage to sign.

 

it's looking seriously ropey, gibbo seems to not care so much, but why when the investment into the stadium means surely he wants to see it full.

 

perhaps relegation will being clever incentives from the club - school kids free, over 60s free, 10 or 20 pound tickets to at least get a stadium fuller of people who dont feel they are being milked for nothing... but we know that wont happen.

 

if gibbo wants to sell then he is going about diminishing our value at an insane rate. I'm not saying there are any buyers, but he'd need to get out quick before we are worth less than FA. 

 

very puzzling times at the boro.

Experienced manager you say, I'd take Pulis!

    • Great news OMG it will be good to keep the PL going it's a great feature and good fun. MM you underplay you're efforts, fantastic job for the last few seasons, I'm sure on behalf of the forum a big thank you for all your hard work and frequent updates. I hope you continue to take part.  
    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
