I don't see it getting any better in league one either with our current set up either.

The way we are at the moment, half the teams in League 1 could beat us without too much effort.

Also reduced revenue (TV money, sponsorship, ticket sales) means we won't be able to spend our way to success, unless Gibson is willing to put some of Bulkhaul's profits into the club.

Well it doesnt matter who signed them only Roberts is reasonable

Pretty alarming to think we don't have ANY competent / qualified football people at the moment.

I honestly just can’t see what Woodgate is trying to do. His decision making is completely baffling and he has no clue what his best formation, team or system is. It’s laughable. Wing is in the team entirely for his long range shooting. Stop that and there’s nothing there. Johnson is okay as an attacking left sided player but he’s been forced into playing left back. McNair has clearly downed tools - from being our best player pre Christmas, now can’t get into the team. 
 

If Woodgate stays, no matter what division we’re in, how can we expect him to build a brand new team (with very few senior players) and coach them to play in a new system? Does anyone have any faith at all that he could build something? 

Absolutely none.

Without major, drastic overhauls in management, coaching and playing staff, it would just be a slow (or maybe rapid) descent towards League 2.

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.

Exactly! it would've been doing Woody a favour if Gibson had got rid of him, say back in November.

As it is, I fear its too late for JW...even a National League side would be mad to risk hiring him now (plus I don't think they're too impressed with PowerPoint presentations at that level).

Who’s managing it? Does he fancy a job?

I'm still holding out for Ravanelli myself. 😁

 

Or perhaps even The Little Fella himself. He played intelligent football, so presumably he has a good footballing brain in his beloved little noggin.

My head thinks Boro want to Woody to resign..  saves a payout for remainder of contract.

Woody seems like the type to wait until he's pushed.

Not that I want to see anything like this, but I think its gonna take some ugly scenes, (from the fans - not the football) before Gibson does anything.

 

Anyone ready to run up to the dugout, rip their tickets up & throw them at Woody?

With 11 games to go its to late for change. The players see the 11 games as count down to departure, a break and are focused on booking holidays, removal vans and house hunting. It’s over guys. The dark cloud has being building and hovering over the riverside for some seasons and it’s about to drop its load and wash away any sense of belonging or hope. 
The merry go round creaked and groaned but was ignored and now it’s finally broken down. What was once an ambitious club envied by many is now just a shell of its former glory. 
I don’t see Woody leaving now would make any difference, fact it could get worse. 

Depends who we bring in.

If Gibson decides to let Leo or Keane take charge, then we are probably doomed.

However, we still only need a couple of wins to ensure safety and we still have a few fixtures that are winnable. Get a competent, experienced person in charge and the "new manager boost" could be just enough to get us over the line.

I'm currently just feeling resigned to us being in League One next season. The likes of Huddersfield, Wigan, Luton and Barnsley have upped their game - their managers have doubled down their efforts and found ways of making things work and inspiring their players. Woodgate hasn't given us a single hope that he's capable of doing that for us. I've rarely seen a manager so lacking in intelligence in the decisions he makes in team selections and during games.

Either way though, we need a new manager. Someone who we will have faith in to build something regardless of what division we're in. Jonathan Woodgate simply isn't that man.

I usually pride myself on my ability to see the positives where Boro are concerned. I've not been able to do that with Woodgate at any point.

I know that you at least are an actor Alan, sadly Woodgate fails at acting as a Manager

If Gibson is gonna sack Woodgate though, he needs to do it right after the Forest game at the latest, otherwise we're just gonna be in the situation of the wasting a summer transfer window while the new manager gets settled in.

I don't think we'll go down under Woodgate tbh. There were enough positives in that Leeds game for me to think we've got enough to pull through (or that there will be worse teams than us come the end). I'd like to think there's a grand plan for the summer that's gonna be executed to perfection & next season we'll all be as happy as pigs in ***.

A couple of wins is sufficient?  That assumes neither WIgan nor Barnsley, both on better form, can out do that.

Oh, I'd hate to think that we might waste a transfer window 😮 🙃

Don't know how anyone is taking positives from that game yesterday. Yes we worked hard but that should be every game. We diddnt create anything at all. The play in the final 3rd was embarrassing.

    • Has been groups of teenagers up and down the banks of the Tees on a daily basis, picnicking and drinking. Police have been down on more than one occasion and asked them to disperse bit next day it is the exact same thing. The two people walking the dog thing though, if they're from the same household it is allowed isnt it? They may just want to exercise together
    • As I type this there's a caravan in a layby on the A689 fully set up with a TV aerial sticking out the top, running eletricity off a portable generator.  It's a road that police patrol often, so I wonder how on earth it's still there. It's been there for nearly a week now.
    • One group of people who are never welcome anywhere will need special attention and that is the actions of travellers, where will they be allowed to stay because as I see it all of the government orders have to apply to them also. Whilst local authorities may act quickly to remove them someone will need to make a choice of allowing them to settle (and all issues which will follow) or simply move them on causing further interaction across the country. 
    • Oh and to *** me off even further, I was stopped on my way to work by police on the A19. Good job I had my letter with me, although the hi-viz vest I always wear should have been enough of a clue.
    • Saying and doing might be a very hard thing to do, we do not know if the Police are at full force and cuts in overall man power over the years will leave it impossible for said action. There will be shows of strength and action from time to time concentrating on certain areas and enforcement but that again will be a drain on recourses unless the Army assist. Plus each and every officer is at risk of being exposed more regularly and transmitting to their own families leading to more isolation and reduction of active available man power. You may see the odd "panda" car driving around interacting with MOP but they will deal more with drivers rather than chasing a group of youngsters over a field. Sadly parents will not "police" their own family nor will they be able to trust that their off spring will follow the limits of going outside. We will probably see more drones than police officers
