    5 Defeats, 2 draws & 1 win

    I hope the rumours have substance CJ, Boro supporters owe an immense debt to Steve Gibson and one which could never be repaid, however it is clear he has not the edge he once had because perhaps of the effect of the economic downturn on his finances or his recent personal domestic issues. May be it is time for some new blood to come into the 'boardroom' and it would be tremendous if it was locally based. I had mused that new investment may come from Indian sources (owners of Corus), but after their decisions concerning the steelworks I'm not sure that would be a good idea from a stability point of view.
    It is clear something is needed in the form of funds and new enthusiam to excite the fans. We all had plenty of laughs at the expense of the Newcastle supporters in recent months, however they are in a a great position now despite a very dodgy owner and a rookie manager. Boro should be in a top league position challenging for automatic promotion, at the current rate they will have difficulty in making the playoffs
