I'm guessing that must have been on the day if him and his shirt were at the ground like someone on here said. Like, it must have been after the kit-man hung it up. I'm guessing he wasn't in the team and maybe he kicked off a bit, especially after the ovation he got against Luton (I'm making *** up here but y'know).

Doesn't explain why Coulson didn't play though.

I find it amazing that we are supposedly having a transitional season yet Beilsa transformed Leeds within one season. That says it all for me with regards to Woodgates coaching ability. Yes Beilsa is more experienced etc.. But I think it's easy to just use the Woodgate is a rookie excuse. 

And people on this forum were laughing at the Bielsa appointment as well.

Woodgate is locally renowned as a bit of a tit and has spent a season and a half sat behind Poolis. He's been cited by Steve Gibson as being 'really, really cheap'.

I can't believe you're comparing the two situations and are so blasé about the difference in experience, to be honest. The difference is huge.

Hmm, I wonder if this ties in with what SDS said on one of the other threads about some of the younger lads having a pop at some of the more experienced ones on Saturday?  Let's say hypothetically that Spence was dropped to the bench initially but then voiced his displeasure at it so was then dropped completely.  Coulson was also dropped to the bench but kept his own counsel so stayed on the bench. After the game a few of them decided to say their piece just as Spence had done perhaps?

Woodgate is demanding a much-improved performance against United. 

See the difference, a Boss is (demanding) were as a Leader is (planning).. 

“Without question, the last two games have been very disappointing,” he admitted. “They were games we thought we could win but didn’t, but that just shows the nature of this league. 

No, it just proves what he thought was fit for purpose was not. Basically he thought he could beat other teams, thereby overrating his ability while underestimating the opponent. 

“It’s a really difficult league, and anyone can take points off anyone. It’s been shown this season; QPR beat Leeds, Barnsley beat Fulham, Hull beat Fulham.

Here is were he believes anyone can take points off anyone but statistics prove we have not and can't.  

“Misery makes phone-ins, misery makes forums.

I can't comment on this one.. 

We can slag Woody off no end, but I think he believes everything he states and for that I give him credit. Look he is either stupid or a genius we have yet to see, so for some rather strange reason Im going for a 1 goal win.. UTB.

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
