  • No splinters from sitting on the fence where you`re concerned then H. Like you say nice bloke but never a manager.He never seemed to have any fire in him in my opinion.I read in the press on Sunday that M`boro are £85 million in debt and that Gibson was aware that those debts would be sure to grow on gates of less than 20,000. It looks like the fans have voted with their feet and got what they wanted.Could this be the way forward for our lot ? Having said that we`ve lost a similar number ( 8,000 ) of paying customers without persuading that nice Mr Ashley to clock out.Cheers H. Good luck with your feisty Scottish dwarf.

    • Hey up Davey lad, wise words as usual. I reckon some of our players could benefit from a swift kick in the #$%$ from a feisty Scottish dwarf, at least he will have more touchline presence than Southgate..who most times showed as much fire as a glass of water. Yes it can be argued that his track record is nothing to shout about..but at least he HAS been around the track a few times and hopefully we will benefit from his previous experiences at Coventry, Southampton etc.
      As for our fans..Cant blame them not turning up after being stuffed 5 nil by West Brom and then having to listen to GS talking about "taking positives away from that defeat" and "showing that we can move on" Southgate had a fair chance, 3 years in fact when many Chairmen would have sacked him long ago.
      It is the fans that ultimately pay players wages and keep the club running so its good to see Gibson listening to public opinion.
      Good comeback from your mob on Saturday btw.
