    Are Boro doomed?

    Now I'm not usually one for lucky heather, rabbits feet, walking under ladders and black cats crossing my path (not referring here at all to Mackems!!), but I am beginning to think GS is not a lucky manager. With Rednap on the other hand it appears to ooze out of every pore (see last nights result against Burnley in Carling Cup). Despite being in relegation trouble, he's at Wembley again and probably in Europe too. And more to the point he is making his own luck by buying to strengthening his team.
    GS on the other hand is not wanting to take Boro into the Championship and I am sure Steve Gibson is not either although a cynic might think that if Boro did spend a year in the Championship it would drastically reduce the £69m debt with player sales, reduced wage bill and parachute payments. I am, along with BoroDoug, CJ and others getting quite worried as nothing seems to be happening. The proposed signing of Watson from Crystal Palace seems a little makeshift but who knows, I for one has never seen him play. However other clubs including Fulham are trying to hijack his transfer and I gather he would prefer to remain in London. I still maintain its not on the field we need strengthening its in the dug out!!
