I enjoyed the game tonight tbh, despite it being freezing. I thought we went toe to toe with Leeds for the most part and could have quite easily nicked a goal or maybe even two on a different night.

I'm not ready to completely write Woodgate off just yet - I think until he's had a proper chance to balance the squad to his liking over the summer & also get rid of all the various high earners (who've been pretty uninspired for several managers over several years now), it's kinda difficult to judge the poor bugger.

He's clearly not doing a fantastic job, but I think a lot of managers would have struggled with us this season - espescially given the task of relying on youth and completely overhauling the playing style, but with pretty much the same core group.. All the young players will be a season better next year and hopefully the same will go for Woodgate. Assuming we make some positive moves/changes to the squad over the summer, we can start to build from there.

Although I appreciate that it's fashionable to be negative on this forum, so with that said; Woodgate out!

Yes I would agree with this if mid table like a month ago but as now we are heading league one we have to cut losses sack Woodgate get a Warnock in to keep us in the Championship. As if we get league one football it's a very long way back!

Well I can give you my opinion in one word after watching that trash last night and that is "Dire".

I am still baffled after a season coaching these "So called strikers" that Robbie Keane still as not found a combination or system to get them playing together.

We could honestly have had 6 forwards out there last night and played a 3-1-6 and still those 6 would have been running around like headless chickens without any idea of how to put the ball in the net.

No matter how many pass's were going into that last 3rd area Boro were never going to score a goal this side of Good Friday.

"DIRE."

I agree it was much, much better but we were still so far behind Leeds it was an indication of how far we have fallen. The team would still need to improve in all games until the season end to get the points tally to survive and I don’t see that happening. Facts are facts, 2 shots on target in 3 games, 8 wins and the lowest amount of goals in the league. Facts!

Boro were better in this game than they have been most of the season and still could not flow or string passes. They huffed and puffed, and they ran about but there was no shape or form. 

i don’t take any heart from the game because it was obvious Leeds were not having a good day but still ran us ragged, still found gaps and cantered to a win. 

Don’t expect the same from Forrest, oh no, they are coming for all 3 points and the slaughter could be embarrassing. 
 

With 11 games to go its to late to bring anyone in simply the team won’t adjust in the time left. Players know they have just 11 games left before packing up and moving on. Most will be booking holidays and removal vans. 
The only question SG has, do I support Woody hoping we survive and save face, drop him put the coach in charge and hope. As obvious Woody will be staying.

I had an argument with myself in the shower this morning over how *** we are.  Ended up falling out with myself. 

Sorry but Jonathan is taking us down

Steve Gibson taking the cheap option instead of doing what’s right for the club, which will inevitably cost us yet again. Doesn’t sound like something he’d do 🤥

If Woodgate is at the pc then he will not be leaving, never heard of a Manager announcing his own departure or sacking.

Usually a statement first of parting of the ways and a formal announcement to the press and interview by the likes of Gibson

He's not doing a vaguely competent job, never mind fantastic.  As to toe to toe; Leeds would have had 3 if Bamford was competent.  We barely threatened.

I think we all accept that this was to be a season of transition but over the course of 40 odd games you expect to see some sort of progression.  We are no better now than we were at the beginning of the season and there's an argument to be made that we are actually worse, that whatever coaching, tactics, management Woody and his team are putting out has us steadily deteriorating.

Worst form, worst goalscoring, no wins in 9, can't win against the worst of the division, can't organise a team to even register an attack against Luton, who have shipped 70 goals.  

There's nothing to suggest that he can identify players of worth to rebalance his team; his three individually selected summer signings have all failed to impress and his loan signings have achieved nothing (Nmecha in particular is poor).

I thought Leeds were poor last night, nothing impressive about them, Bamford especially was anonymous.

Which makes it all the more frustrating that the only time we tested their keeper was a long distance pop shot.

We're struggling badly, and it's entirely down to our own performances rather than simply being outclassed.

Forest were mediocre at their place, I don't imagine they'll be much better here, but I still have very little confidence in us getting a result.

It was already penned in. Lot can happen between now and then, and even Monday though.

Unless he goes before Monday then he will be in charge of the team against Forest.

    • We have an official Fifa Esports player now! he's currently guided us into the last 8 of the Ultimate Quaran Team tournament being run.   He has beaten Huddersfield, Walsall, Central Coast Mariners & VVV Venlo so far.
    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
