Apparently has the backing still

I honestly don't see where it stops. Honestly think that Woodgate is bullet proof and Gibson is ready for us to go to league 1 only to deliver some crappy PR rallying cry in the summer about "oh we di

There was some fight tonight but very little quality. Leeds were poor which probably made us look better than we were. We can't score, that's the top and bottom of it, near misses don't count. I can't fathom what Gibson's plan is, if he he has one. The reality of relegation will be a decimated squad, home crowds under 10K with a massive loss of revenue. 

This isn't the way to let a rookie manager find his feet, it'll likely destroy Woodgate as a manger too.

To be honest this season has the feeling similar to that of Ipswich last season in the championship, in which they gutted their team tried to make it on league 1/2 quality players with a young manager and then subsequently got relegated. Only real difference I can see is we kept some of our senior players, and our manager is a total and complete novice. If we go down we will be right up the proverbial creek especially with contracts expiring and a wage bill still exceptionally high

We deserve to be relegated to League One for Gibson’s incompetence since relegation from the Premier League. His decision to appoint Woodgate, and continue with him, would not be accepted by any half competent owner of a football club within the Championship. We’re merely Gibson’s toy to give his pals within football jobs that no one else would give them. We’re not a serious football club.

Yes but packed him off in January and the only other possibility Patrick Reading sold as well.

I know. I was being facetious. I think it is pretty obvious though that we have dodged a bullet by not allowing him to bring a left back in. He cannot identify decent players. His appraisal of the squad he inherited was that it was full of goals and had the pace and intelligence to play an attacking, pressing game. Boro rangers is his level.

I agree. How can he be trusted to build for next season, whichever league we are in. There has probably never been such a massive replacement of playing staff in the history of the club?

Can see it getting very nasty the closer we get to relegation, there’s no way in hell we should be anywhere near League 1.
 

Said last season I’d lost faith in Gibson and most weren’t on the same page, which I don’t blame people for necessarily. Some of the decisions made by Gibson and the club at the minute are simply mind boggling, no words to describe them. 

I don’t think a banner would ever be taken into the riverside against SG and I don’t think there should be out of respect for what he’s done, but on the same hand he won’t do anything himself so some action needs to be taken

It's not just woody but can you trust any of the recruitment team. 

Even this window we have a lad from City who looks good but the rest are either absent or at best so so.

Cant believe the little money we had was spent on a keeper who cant make the squad

I know. This has been a complete waste of a season from a squad building perspective. If the ones he bought last summer come back they have to be reintegrated into the squad if good enough. No style of play for them to fit into. New players coming in, and with no set style of play how do you identify the squads strengths and weaknesses to identify targets. Its a bit like my lads sunday league team.

    • I mentioned a while back about what would attract players to come to us in comparison to other teams “at our level”.    After the good training facilities there weren’t any other suggestions.    We need to attract players to play with a vision of excitement and something that will get the riverside bouncing. Would you want to sign for hoofball and a groan filled riverside??    I wish I had the optimism of some of the members thinking that magically we will go against our norm for this transfer window. Expect more “players to drift”, players out of “boro’s budget” and “stalling talks” to be a common theme.    Even IF by some mirical you wanted to sign for us, wouldn’t you be on borrowed time whilst Warnock is only here for one more season? Added to that how he’s thrown players like Akpom under the bus, I’ll ask again. What about us as the moment is an attractive option?  🧐
    • Don’t think it’s been mentioned but Millwall are after Lumley. also an unnamed championship team have looked at William Boyle. Big centre back with a few goals in him. Don’t know anything about him and it’s probably not us but hey it’s prewindow

    • Forgot Liverpool still had a game in hand. A draw is the best result. Thankfully Iheanacho has just got one back.
