Must have been that Paulo lad who was on here saying he was going to give Gibson a grilling, and called his behaviour despicable. He had a point about Gibson's handling of Southgate, but FFS, he left Boro a year ago. Move on, fella.

doing not too bad until he admitted he doesnt go to games anymore

in the end gibson was one step ahead of everyone and strachan didn tleave until 1hour before phone in. so most questions werent goign to be relevant.

being synical, you wonder if the plan was for strachan to leave today once that gibson phone in was lined up ;)

He was bloody embarrassing. Went on and on and on about the terrible things Gibson had brought to the club but didn't say a word about the fact that he'd brought us European football, our first ever cup win and the likes of Bryan Robson, Ravanelli and Juninho.

Leon; if you are reading this you are the sort of Johnny Come Lately pillock this club can do without so s.o.d off

gibson didnt take any calls. he was on for about 20 minutes, once he left they took the calls

Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

The phone-in with Gibson didn't happen Lisbon. Steve talked with Alistair for 15-20 minutes and that was it. It was just the usual phone-in with Alistair and Gary.

The phone-in with Gibson will be at a later date once the new manager has been appointed. Maybe Gibbo had to dash off as he's more pressing things to do such as recruite a new manager.

mickymacc Posted on 18/10/2010 21:31
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

Gibbo told the staff he believed they had the talent to turn it round,but reserved the right to change things,and he did.I wonder if he wished he'd let it run a bit longer.
Maybe he realised he should have changed things earlier with Gareth and didn't want to make the same mistake twice.

ProudToComeFromTeesside Posted on 18/10/2010 21:45
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

He didn't sound too bright, but he had a point about Gibson not sacking Southgate after relegation, letting him manage for two months of the following season, then sacking him. As Southgate left a year ago, I don't see the point in harking over old ground.

Thing is, he was going to say that to Gibson on the assumption that WGS was still in a job. WGS has left, Gibson didn't do the phone-in, yet Leon still came on to spout the same stuff.

I as did many others I guess, had questions for Gibson but wouldn't have bothered in the end as this tea-time's events overtook everything else.

Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 18/10/2010 22:16
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

This wasn't all about Southgate, despite me bringing him up. Gibson was talking about integrity - that's rich coming from him, considering what he has done in the past.

He sat there and mentioned the dwindling support. Why did the support dwindle? Well, in my opinion he played a part in that. As I said on the radio, he backed Southgate constantly and as a result alienated certain sections of fans - me being one of them. That is why I take exception to him saying things like that. He is partly to blame and should hold his hands up. He hasn't and he never will. Do you know why? Because a lot of fans think the sun shines out of his backside.

I said on the radio I wouldn't go while Southgate was there. When he went, I wanted to renew but couldn't, because of work. I work some Tuesday nights and some Saturday days and nights. Otherwise, I would go.

You should just sit and think about what I am saying. Gibson has done a lot for the club, but he is not immune to being slagged off. He makes mistakes and they deserve to be highlighted. Why can you not not acknowledge that?

bryan_munich Posted on 18/10/2010 22:30

He makes mistakes and they deserve to be highlighted.. I think they are and I think he acknowledged that tonight.

Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 18/10/2010 22:34
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

So I just sit and agree with you lot then, eh? What's wrong with challenging the public and having a different opinion? Does that scare you?

I've been going to Boro matches for 20 years. I had a season ticket for 16. Nobody on here can question my level of support over the years. However, there is only so much a man can take, only so much a man can be taken for granted.

Gibson doesn't care about the fans, he treats like idiots and he knows that a certain amount of people will renew. The pre-season we went down, I dare say he expected the stadium to be packed every week. Unfortunately for him, people got wise. People have better things to spend their money on. People are sick of being taken for idiots and taken for granted.

That is what the man has done and that is partly why I don't really feel like ever having a season ticket again.

Can anybody understand what I'm saying?

Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 18/10/2010 22:37
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

Yes, subbuteo, I did. I did because that is what he is and that is what I said I would do.

Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

When did I do what, subbuteo?

My problem with Gibson is stated above. Read it. Take note. You'll see where I'm coming from if you open your mind.

I was a massive Southgate hater, but the way Gibson treated him wasn't shocking, really. As I said when I was talking to Gibson's puppets on the radio, he really didn't deserve to be stabbed in the back like that. Gibson mentioned Strachan had integrity. Gibson hasn't got any.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 18/10/2010 22:44
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

I think you've blown a gasket. A total lack of respect for someone who saved the club and gave us the greatest moments in our history. So what if he made a few mistakes along the way. We got relegated once before and bounced straight back, this time we didn't. Calling the man a snake after everything he has done is juvenile and disrespectful to say the least, even if you are doing it for a reaction.

It's a shame you have such a selective memory, why don't you build up a multimillion pound business and take over the club. It's also a real shame that you were given air time to be honest.

JASON1971 Posted on 18/10/2010 22:44

I always become filled with dread when boro fans ring in any phone-in. In the main,they are always slightly embarrassing and make ill-informed points. Usually prefixed by the classic "I couldn't get down there today..." Er, yes, you don't go, but love to tweet or text. Just listen to the useless inbreds who ring or send messages on tees.
I just wish a few would be articulate enough to hold our interest.
And please, noone talk about Gibbo bottling it.

He built a multi-million pound business? Yeah, I know. I don't know how he done it, but he did. He obviously doesn't run Bulkhaul like he does Boro.

Andy, I don't care about the good old days, mate. You've got to take into account what has happened over the last 3 years and question it. If you don't question things, people can do whatever they want.

Gibson has done well for this club, but I will never hero worship him. Ever. Look at the mistakes he has made, think about them and you'll see what I mean. Think about how much he takes YOU for granted. He takes the fans for idiots, how can you not see that?

I appreciate what he has done for the club. Even I can't argue against that. But you've got to question things, otherwise you'll through life never knowing anything.

Jason, you're obviously a bit inbred yourself, I assume? I said above I can't go because I have to work. What else can I do? Give my job up for a football club that doesn't appreciate me? Come off it.

I am being "articulate" and thought provoking. It's just a shame you're not intelligent to see it.

ProudToComeFromTeesside Posted on 18/10/2010 22:53
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

I don't think you can question his integrity. Agreed, he could have handled the Southgate situation better, but he made the decisions he made as he thought they were in the interest of MFC. He praised both Strachan and Southgate for the way they handled their departures. That to me shows that he has integrity.

Leon, you're right that Gibson has made mistakes and right to criticise him for those mistakes when you see fit. I would never agree with anyone that he's above criticism - he isn't. There's a difference between making mistakes and having no integrity. Gibson does have a ruthless side though, such as the way he asked the board of the old MFC in 1986 for full executive powers after liquidation, then sacking them. As with mistakes, don't confuse any ruthless streak, especially when it's to do with MFC, as a lack of integrity. I believe that whatever decisions he makes, even if they're the wrong ones, he makes them as he thinks they're in the interests of MFC.

To be honest though, I thought he showed a bit of humility when speaking to Alistair this evening saying that "some will say that I got it wrong in the first place (re Strachan)...they're probably right."

Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 18/10/2010 22:55
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

Juninho: How did I not sound "bright"? I don't really see where you're coming from with this statement.

He should sacked him months before he did. He didn't. He stabbed him in the back instead. Why can you not grasp that?

Read my post earlier in this thread to see why Gibbo MAY have changed things.He gave Gareth EVERY chance and believed it wasn't working.He told him to his face after the game,not great timing,but as Lenny Laurence has stated,Gibbo can be hard when he has to be.

Lisbonlegend Posted on 18/10/2010 22:59
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

I often question him, he's made a lot of mistakes, as we all do in life but he does things with good intentions. He shouldn't have taken on Southgate, he should have sacked him earlier, he shouldn't have taken on Strachan, he shouldn't have called people from Stockton Mackems. However, I don't go on the radio to call him a snake because there wouldn't be a club at all without him, he gave us juninho, FA and League cup finals and the UEFA cup final. All of which I am grateful for, even if I think we have gone full circle. In the 24 years since we almost went out of business he has done far more right than he has wrong.

It's easy to sit there and criticise when you don't do anything yourself to make the situation different.

Paulo_SAscouting, you have to realise that gibson is a hero again for getting rid of strachan(or got him to resign). shame you never go the chance to speak to gibson before strachan left. things all changed once strachan left. everyone is back believing in gibson. however had strachan not resigned what would have happened?

Bill, are you doing this on purpose? Are you purposely not reading everything I write and just picking bits out?

Gibson does NOTHING for season ticket holders. He proved that when he sh*t himself last season and introduced the amazing idea of if somebody buys half a season ticket and Boro win their games in January, they get that ticket for nothing. What about season ticket holders who paid full whack? What do they get?

I didn't want much from the club - maybe the odd offer of discounted stuff from the club shop when you renew. You know, stuff like that. Stuff that shows the club know you actually exist.

I know the club have to try and win fans back some way, but you don't shaft the paying customer to win back those who don't want to be there.

I'm arguing a 5 or 6 people here and not 1 of has made me think any different. Come on, surely you're not all brain washed idiots?

You proudly tell us you've been suppoprting the club for 16 years. Great, so you've been supporting them for all the time Gibson's been in charge, you have no appreciation at all of what it was like before him under vampires like Charlie Amer. You have no experience on 1982 to 1986. As I speculated you are a Johnny Come Lately.

This is Boro and over 13 of the last 16 years you have been spoilt rotten.

How do you know there wouldn't have been a club without him? He was a member of a group, he wasn't an individual. It just so happens that he has stook about longer - maybe because he's not 80 years old or dead?

He has done a lot right. He has done a few things wrong, I totally agree. But like I've said, there are many reasons why I have the hump with MFC. I've explained everything I need to explain.

ProudToComeFromTeesside Posted on 18/10/2010 23:09
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

So you dislike him because of the lack of "perks" for season ticket holders? I'm sure we've had our fair share of offers for fans in recent years. However, the bottom line is income generation. We need to maximise our income in order to have a chance of competing. One thing that always gets me is the way some of our fans want tickets as cheap as possible, but these will be the first people to have a go at the club when they're not spending the money.

If it's special offers you're interested in, then spend your spare Saturday afternoons in Morrisons. I'm interested in MFC competing at football. Offers on tickets and at the club shop are all very nice and we do get these from time to time, but things like that are of minor importance compared to what happens on the football pitch.

Paulo_SAscouting Posted on 18/10/2010 23:11

I'm sure this Bauser character is an employee of MFC, is he? I'm sure Gibson would have had to have given his approval for that ridiculous offer.

I don't want anything from MFC now. I don't have a season ticket any more, so that is somewhat irrelevant, really.

Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

Paulo, you buy a ticket or a season ticket and you're paying to see the match, nothing else. That's what football is. But as it goes, I saved about £50 in the club shop at the end of last season because I have a season ticket, so that's one of your complaints out of the window. Lots of discounted stuff, plus an extra discount if you show your card.

The half-season ticket offer is exactly that, a half season ticket. The bit about winning the games is an extra incentive and as a ST holder, I couldn't care less. The club has also done cheap tickets for some matches and free kids tickets for others.

None of that is neccessary because as supporters, all we need is to go to the match, nothing more, but the club tries things to get more people in and has discounts for ST holders for stuff. I had my dinner at the Riverside two weeks ago and got a discount because of my ST.

Open YOUR eyes.

It's one thing not to know the (recent) history of the club, or to be unaware of the state the club was in before you started watching.

But to be so rude about the people who saved the club takes the biscuit.

You no doubt think you're correct in all of your opinions, but you should realise that many on here find them offensive.

Fair enough, Andy. I always thought you had a season ticket, to be honest.

Still, if others are stupid enough to fall into the clubs's trap, that's their problem. I've tried warning people before and they wouldn't listen. Maybe they will now?

Exiled is right, there's one thing being on a wind up and then there is another thing calling Steve Gibson a snake live on air. If you put half as much effort in to building a business as you do talking sh*te you would probably have your own business by now.

If you don't like the way the club has turned over the last 3 years, then do what you've done, and stop going. Nobody forces you.

Great thread - it's almost like "what did the Romans ever do for us apart from...". None of us really know what went on between Southgate and Gibson so you're just speculating like the rest of us. So how about this scenario. He really liked Southgate and wanted to give him every chance. However, he then came to the conclusion that he probably was going to be unable to get us promoted. He was then left with a dilemma of doing the best for Southgate or doing the best for the Boro. He chose the Boro. Tought choice and hard on Southgate given the timing, but leaders are forced to make decisions based on shades of grey as sadly the world is not black and white.

Just speculating, but then so are you.

OneEye Posted on 19/10/2010 01:55
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

You make some excellent points here Paulo, and well done on standing up to the barracking of some Gibson-worshiping fans.

So Gibson has been at the club for nearly 25 years, and in that time he has overseen the Boro win ONE, yes ONE trophy.

When Gibson hired Bryan Robson he declared that within 10 years he wanted Boro to be an established Premier League club. Well Gibson's wish came true, within 10 years Boro were an established Premier League club... so everyone relaxed and Boro got relegated, mainly because Gibson gave a job to someone who didn't even have his coaching badges at the time, never mind some bloodly managerial experience.

Gibson has done a lot for Middlesbrough Football Club, no one can dispute that, but he is not beyond criticism which is what Paulo is trying to say.

He has made some huge mistakes in the past and he isn't the halo-wearing man a lot of you make him out to be.

So we've had Juninho, we've had a trophy, we've had European football, we've beaten Chelsea, we've beaten Manchester United, we've beaten Liverpool, Roma and Lazio etc. Thanks Gibson, I'm very grateful, I really am - you've given me some of the greatest times of my life as a football fan.

But now we're closer to League One football than we are Premier League football. We don't have one single player who would get into say a Sunderland side right now - and if anyone thinks Kris Boyd is better than Darren Bent then you're having a laugh.

If Boro were miraculously catapulted into the Premier League our squad of players isn't good enough to compete. Yet when we we're relegated we had a squad of players capable of storming the Championship. Why didn't that happen, why were we relegated in the first place with such a good squad of players?

I'll tell you why, because of the two previous management regimes - Gareth Southgate and Gordon Strachan. And who overseen those regimes? Steve Gibson.

This man is not beyond criticism, in fact, he should be bearing the brunt of the responsibility for the predicament Boro currently find themselves in. He should have hired an experienced manager once McClaren departed, but moving on a few years he should have either stuck by Southgate or sacked him after relegation... not give him two months then sack him whilst sitting pretty in the table.

Just my thoughts of course.

Paulo/Leon, whoever you are, the problem is that you have no idea what happened with Southgate and you come on spouting all sorts of rubbish based on little snippets you've picked up. He didn't stab him in the back at all. And I know that because of numerous conversations with the man himself. Don't believe everything you read on a message board or in the papers.

And as for articulate, you should have a read back at some of your sentences that don't make sense or even say what you want them to say.


juninhosdivingheader Posted on 19/10/2010 07:50
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

paulo or whatever your name is - its my understanding that Gibson didn't know about the half-season card offer but pulled it when you found out.

But for the record I think he was wrong to do that. It was a good idea - and none of those tempted by it would have got anything that full season card holders didn't get.

He didn't stab Southgate in the back. He kept faith with him for 3 years even when he got us relegated. Ultimately he lost faith in him and got rid. That's life.

darko_pancev Posted on 19/10/2010 09:20
Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

Leon, I agree with some of the points here (not all mind), as usual anything negative against gibson on the club will always be shot down in flames on here. Gibson has had Massive tax breaks due to his ownership of MFC, he has been to see David Cameron a few weeks ago regarding his tax status in Jersey, he's a business man first and foremost and a boro fan second, he has made some massive mistakes with this club and he has had some massive massive success stories. The point I'm making is that in my opinion people who think that Gibbo thinks first and foremost about the club and its fans first then they are the blinkered ones. If it was me I would do the same to be honest, its not financially viable for a succesful businessman to throw his hard earned cash at a north eastern football club.

He does care about the club, he cares about bulkhaul and his family more, and whats wrong with that? nothing. he made a big mistake not replacing maclaren, he wanted maclaren out after he applied for the leeds and toon jobs, he got it right when he gambled with offering him a new contract as he knew england were coming calling.

I'm happy that we hve a chairman like steve gibson but throughout this relagation / manager saga he has to be accountable for some serious mistakes, hes a big enough man to admit it i think.

You start a sentence by saying that Gibson has no integrity and should have backed his appointment more, then finish it by saying he stood by Southgate for too long? Do you not see the contradiction just in that statement?

I've been called all sorts on this thread, thick being one of the main ones. And who by? Probably by people who really aren't that bright themselves.

But if people had made what you class as a "good point", then they would have been agreeing with you, as you only think the opinions that are the same as yours are the right ones.

Elaborate, Fuchs. It's no good bullet pointing your very brief opinions, is it? Or do you have to bullet point because you're not clever enough to write a full sentence?

Agreed Fuchs [^]

Don't mind people having a different opinion but when it's supported by idiocy I just ignore them.

I suspect this latest troll is another of Flar's or Lisbon's creations.

I am trying to keep it simple for you as I know the level you are at.

Off air they should be asking a few questions about the points you intend to make. After about 10 seconds they should have cut you off.

That would have saved you from your very embarrassing replies now.

Right, I've had enough now. If you want to sit and talk about me, you're more than welcome. I've sat and expressed my opinions and tried to reason with whoever had a go at me. You wouldn't accept it.

Feel free to carry on being taken for granted by the club you support. Carry on being taken for an idiot who doesn't question anything, you're welcome to do so.

I can't be bothered any more. You all know what I think and you chose to discredit it, instead saying that I'm thick or idiotic. And why? Because my opinion doesn't match yours.

Oh, well. Have fun talking about me.

Goodbye.

I would say see you at the Boro, but as you haven't been since the Prem... Idiots like you we do not need.

Nah, definitely not Lisbon, unless he's changed his name to Leon. Not sure if Lisbon's devious enough to create such an alter-ego.

Paulo, you know the people who think the sun shines out of Gibson's backside and never question his decisions? You're right at the other end of that scale.

Be open-minded and you'll find there's plenty of middle ground.

Also, you had another thread about how Gibson has really paid Strachan off and we're blind. If Gibson has made a settlement with Strachan, he has no reason to come out in public and say Strachan walked away without payment, and praise him to the heavens for doing so. Doesn't fit in with him being a snake does it?

I think I have better things to do with my time than go on the radio acting like a juvenile ar*ewipe slagging off a bloke I met a few weeks ago and then continue to spout drivel on here. Btw, I've just saved my company £1.2m whilst I was doing it.

To viv-andersons-nana

No mate, me and Paulo aren't the same person. Is that what you think of people when two of them share the same view, which is different to your own?

Paulo against Mowbray being manager, I'm all for it - so there's the evidence, we are not the same people.

It's amazing mate, it really is, in this world, people are entitled to have different (or even the same opinions) you know whilst being two different people.

All the best.

Mike

Come on, Andy. No need to be like that, is there? Just because you've met him and you like him doesn't mean I can't slag him off.

Paul0, you are so angry at the world, and at your age, I cannot see why.

This is just another item in a long list that p1sses you right off.

Why dont you just relax a bit?

Exactly, some of the things you are having a go at are a wee bit trivial. Yes, Bausor uses a few PR gimmicks. So what? He's only trying to generate a bit of interest. Like you, I'm a bit cynical about some of the PR and spin that comes from the club, but I can deal with it. It's what happens on the pitch that counts. You may have other ideas on what gimmicks and offers the club should come up with. Fair enough, but don't knock the club for occasionally trying summat different. They don't have to come up offers on tickets and merchadise. When they do, it's to generate cash and interest in MFC. Nowt wrong with that.

Gibson cares more about the club than he does the fans. If he cared more about what the fans think, he'd have sacked Robson in 1996 when we went 14 games without a win. Yes, us fans are important, as are our opinions, but you can't please all of the people all of the time. They have to make decisions based on what they think is right for MFC, regardless of what the fans think.

Evil, what's wrong with being p*ssed off about stuff? You can't be happy all the time.

PTCFT, congratulations on the first proper reply in this thread. See, it's not hard is it?

You can please all of the people, all of the time - that's very true. But Gibson seems to think you can fool all of the people all of the time.

No fans, no club.

Liam or Leon on the phone-in with Ali having a go at Gibson

Because its not healthy.

You'll end up in a padded cell.

Anywho, why are you focussing solely on the negatives that Gibson has 'done' for the club?

The positives far outweigh the negatives, this is a very shortsighted attitude you have.

I just think that in this day and age, spin and PR play a large part. Work, sport, politics etc. When I do see spin and PR gimmicks at MFC, I try not to let it cloud my judgement either way as to what happens on the pitch, which in recent seasons, as Gibson admitted, has been "bloody awful".

However, if you put all that you perceive to be PR and spin to one side, surely you can see that the positives outweigh the negatives regarding Gibson. He makes decisions that he feels are in the best interests of MFC (it's his business, why would he do anything else?), which are not necessarily what the fans think are best for MFC.
