    Did Coleman ever get Fulham in the top 10?

    I'd go for Allardyce and demote Southgate to Assistant, Southgate will be a good manager but I think he needs someone experanced to learn from.

    • You want Big Sam at Boro? I've had enough of poor signings who never really cut it. Why get a guy who'll take a 50 grand back hander just to sign another #$%$ player? Lets give Gareth a little longer. This is still Maclaren's team, he's got Woddy to sign which is great news, Huth need to stay fit and that is a cracking partnership in the making. We need more players to compete for the midfield slots.

      Is George still cutting it? Will Rocky ever stop sulking for the sun and comit to playing for us? James Morrison doesn't have enough quality in my opinion for where we want to be in the prem. Can we get Mendi off the wage bill? Stewie needs to perform like he did against Bolton week in week out. Johnson looks like sheer class if he can bulk up a little and not get dominated. Parnaby, Davies, Xavier, can all go if we can get other players in to cover.

      Lots to be done over the summer, let see what they can do.

      I would like to see the Captaincy go to Woody and build around him, he's said he'll finish his career with us. Lets reward that and push on.

      • Reason I said Allardyce was Boro need a manager who's going to shout at players off the field as well as when things are going right on the field, Southgate to me comes over as being to 'nice' and doesn’t really shout as his players much, they seem a little too relaxed.

        I agree with you on those players and would sell them all also along with Huth, from what I've seen of him he's not worth the £6M we paid Chelsea plus with Woodgsate and Pogatetz doing so good this season was he really worth buying, we have Wheater getting rave reviews from Darlo (tho he really needs to go to a top Championship club to really see what he's like), Bates coming back from injury (if Southgate plays him at centre back.

        Maybe if the captaincy went to Woody, would Boateng be back to his best?

    • I'll agree on what u've said on the results he gotten throughout afew seasons. Did u spare a thought;

      1) Limited resources to splurge on new players?(FYI,most new players from free transfer & loan)

      2) Tactically, he is stronger than GARETH for sure! (Big teams FEAR him)

      3)He as good as GAreth in bringing the Best out of academy youth players.

      4) Few problematic areas i've been monitoring on boro, they aint good on 'One Touch' football(seen them tried before,look like school boys...hehe)

      Emerging players always score against Boro, if anyone notice.I cant remember clearly, maybe Neil Mellor(Liverpool),Craig Gardner(Villa), Ashley Young(Watford)& recently Youth player Andy Carrol hat-rick against Boro reserve team...etc! Damm,its sickening!

      Prove me anyone:?
