    Where are the next points coming from..?

    Well a away morla sapping FA cup trip to wolves as we will get beat i am afraid....hope not but not optimistic..! then probably a backs to the wall, damage limitation against Chelsea, by which time we could be bottom of the league...then a big game against b'burn and big sam will certainly be focussed on that...away at man city, home to inform wigan and liverpool...I can only see us staying rooted to the bottom with out changes...i dont want to be down about it but we are throwing too many points away and not showing enough fighting spirit...come on boys please prove me wrong............Gs think about your back room staff and who has been so influencial to you in your playing career...

    • Its time for the players to earn their money.
      We are so lucky that this season there are several other clubs who are struggling too, there's plenty of points to play for and we could scrape it IF the players play their hearts out and grab us crucial points...For this to happen Southgate needs the full support of the dressing room and thats doesnt seem to be happening at the moment, either get rid of GS or cut loose the rotten wood and bring in some fresh blood...be that from other teams or the reserves.
      We desperately need our experienced defenders back in the side, Poggy & Huth. Taylor & McMahon are too inexperienced as was proved against West Brom when McMahon gifted them the first goal. Wheater & Riggot havent the experience to lead the defense yet. Selling Luke Young last year is looking to be a big mistake when its now we could do with him most.

      • yes we certainly are not firing at the back or front this year and a young niave middle and back room staff just tops it all off..we have a handful of premiership players but not premiership tactics and coaching....The solution..a goal scorer (scoring goals changes games even when the opposition is on top)..more solid midfield..o'neil is not good enough to play there, digard has shown some great touches but gives far too much ball away(the first thing I tell the boys I coach..if the opposition haven’t got the ball they can not score....!!!
        I do hope we can turn things around for everyone at the clubs sake especially SG and GS…come on boys play your hearts out…come back room staff just your brains….come on board use your wallets….

        Up the Boro....!
