Yes it did. Their substitutions and change of formation exploited our weaknesses and Woody did not have the tactical nous to know how to make substitions himself to deal with it. 

Nah, Bowen's first goal was an individual pop shot from outside of the box and then Fry did poorly in the box to allow him to tap in the second.

Our weakness was the missing man and them having a player who has been the outstanding talent in the Championship for 2 seasons.

Coulson was insane and Gestede did everything he needed to. While this draw felt like a loss, i can't be furious at team, there is just no point, we are in this situation now and the club needs us all to stick together.

I know that every game in the championship is a hard game, but arguably this was the hardest game on paper that we have left. If we can pick up a win at Charlton this weekend that should take us out of the relegation.

Looking at the last 10 games, we don't have any of the top teams. I am hoping/praying that we can get out of this.

And yet in the same situation, other teams have actually played better than us with one fewer man this season.  We were terrible in that second half and some of that was definitely down to Woodgate - didn't we have Tavernier as a left back with the reason given that Woodgate thought he was better defensively than Coulson?  Some nonsense like that anyway and that was after bringing Clayton on for Fletcher at half time.

I wonder how Woodgate’s meeting with Gibson is going? Anybody have any news?

What meeting?

Lets see what tomorrow's planned meeting brings - He may get the support he needs from experience till the end of the season.

I don't believe in any way, shape or form that he will be sacked.

Because Woodgate's not very good at in game management, it's not because the Hull manager was.

They've not won a single game since selling Bowen.

They play Stoke and Charlton next, so any outcome in those fixtures can be positive for us if we scrape some points together.

Think SDS said last week that there was a MFC meeting organised for today.

I suspect that it's going like this:

"Ah well, we nearly won Woody"

"Aye, never mind"

"Onwards and upwards"

"Cheers boss, ta'rah"

I would 100% keep the team the same. One of our biggest issues has been the constant chopping and changing never allowing a first XI to settle...  plus it sends a message that good performances are rewarded.

McNair is a conundrum... definitely at fault for one goal, arguably two. However, he's still one of our only players who can carry the ball out with a bit of pace and energy.

Wing baffles me too... he is so bad yet at the same time how can you really knock the only guy who seems to bloody score!

Amazingly he is now joint top scorer with Fletcher on 7 goals (both 1 ahead of Britt). 😁

It's not that amazing.  He's had more shots than anyone else in the squad.  Only Gestede has had more shots per 90 mins than him as well.  If you shoot a lot, and you aren't completely terrible, you're probably going to score a few.

Oh yeah, I agree with that.  Just saying, we've hardly covered ourselves in glory in the same situations but then we haven't in most situations this season.

Oh right.  Gibson has already said his piece yesterday so this meeting seems pointless to me?

I like it actually. Id actually think about leave Rudy up front. He seems to be better being that lone striker

It's all good man - in a bit of a mood myself this morning for various reasons, Boro related and no 😅. Given you a like to get you a little rep point. 👍🏻

Haha hope your day improves. And favour returned on the rep points. We should stop flirting with one another now as other board members might feel uneasy.

Yeah probably. I’m assuming it’s more of a regular, scheduled meeting - opposed to a crisis meeting. Afterall, Gibson does not see us on the brink of relegation to League One as a crisis.

    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.  
    • As far as I can tell it's the only argument that they can even try to make, and even that's weak AF.
